Excellent, A beautiful apartment

5 of 5
We spent a very enjoyable nine days, and was really very impressed with the apartment it was very clean and tidy. The location of the apartment was a short walk to the beach restaurant and bar and the supermarket. We very much enjoyed walking along the seafront path calling in to the beach bars along the way for lunch and one or two beers along the way. We will be booking this apartment again and we will recommend it to Family and friends. Carl & Kath

Very nice apartment at perfect location

5 of 5
Charming, clean and well equipped apartment in a nice, quiet residential complex Andalucian style. Nice big swimming pool surrounded by green area in the centre of the complex. Location very convenient to everything; beach, super market, train station. Owner really helpful - met us at the station and guided us to the apartment. Small balcony facing pool area - very cosy for evening snacks :-) Beautiful view of Fuengirola to the South West. Would definitely go for it again.
