The apartment has been very well modernised and is a generous size. The TV set up was excellent as was the WiFi speed. Jason and Debbie have done a great job here and we only had one problem which was sorted out very quickly. A very relaxing place to stay particularly as we both became unwell during our holiday. We did find the shower base slippery and were disappointed with the lack of some kitchen items e.g. coffee maker/caffettiere, teapot. This did not, however, detract from our enjoyment of the apartment. The apartment is located close to many shops, bars and restaurants although I would recommend hiring a car as the hill it's at the top of is quite steep. If you want a good apartment in this area then this is the one to go for. Thanks to Jason and Debbie for sharing with us.

It is a large two bedroom apartment, about 30 feet from the beach. Was just lovely to be so close to the beach and just take in the sound of the waves. Two large bedrooms and two bathrooms (1 ensuite). Kitchen is great as well. Nice and clean, full of utensils, whatever you need. There are two small supermarkets close by (5 mins walk) to buy anything you need, however i just used the apartment as a base, as i was driving around alot (ironically property hunting), so i dropped into Carrefour and Mirimar in Fuengirola for a couple of larger shops. Parking was easy. You can park inside the complex about 30 feet from the front door. Easter weekend was obviously busier, but after that, there was plenty of space. There is a large outdoor pool, and an indoor pool, as well as the beach. If you are there with children, they will be spoiled for choice. Communications from Deborah were great, no issues. Would easily recommend and rent again. Thanks Dean
