A cot was kindly set up for my baby, all four of us slept in one room. Spent every morning at the pool, afternoons at the beach and back to the pool for a late evening splash! The pool is fantastic, it is really big with various depths and the pool and surrounding areas are spotlessly clean and beautifully maintained. There was a lifeguard on duty from 12pm to 8pm. There is a supermarket across the road. El Palo is really lovely. Most restaurants open after 8pm (was caught off guard our first night as my children are young and used to eating at 7pm), after that we adjusted to El Palo time!. El Palo is also really well serviced with regular busses to Malaga city centre. Can recommend this property, landlady was really helpful and lives close by.

                                                                                            The apartment is in an excellent location and is good value for money - it is right at a lovely beach! All along the beach front are plenty of restaurants and cafes serving delicious food and specialising in fried fish. The area is typically Spanish and not touristy at all. The supermarket is within easy walking distance. The apartment is as specified and has a lovely little terrace to sit and have meals or just to sit and look out over the beach and sea. There is a roof terrace but I found this disappointing. However, beach chairs and a parasol are provided so this was not really an issue. The apartment is also within easy reach of the bus stop to Malaga which is only a 15 minutes journey. The buses are excellent and run regularly even throughout the night. Buses to other areas throughout the region run from Malaga. Malaga has plenty of interesting museums (we loved the car and fashion museum!) as well as a great selection of shops, cafes, ice cream parlours, restaurants and a park. There are loads of attractions to visit around Malaga province including a botanical garden, water parks, amusement park (open till 1.30 am), butterfly garden, caves and even a Buddhist temple. So there is plenty to keep different generations within a family happy! And if you love clothes and shoe shopping - go to nearby Torremolinos! I would definitely recommend this apartment to those who do not wish to be in the typical tourist resorts nearby and knowing a small amount of Spanish helped get us by! My only concern is that I had to pay the remaining amount due for the apartment to the owner in cash and I would have preferred to have paid this directly into their bank account. All 3 of us very much enjoyed our holiday (with my daughter aged 21 and son aged 12).
