Why Steve Illidge chose Mijas area

We have visited this part of Spain for more than 25 years both summertime and golfing out of season. When we eventually retire we would like to spend a lot more time in the apartment.

El Faro

  • 5 of 5

The property is well equipped and very clean and comfortable. The description is very accurate and it's great to have two bathrooms.

There are some great restaurants that are easily accessible from the apartment (you don't have to go off the urbanisation to eat if you don't want to and I would definitely recommend Dona Marias at the bottom of the estate).

There is a lift to get you to the different levels of the block which is useful for getting your cases to the right level or if you have difficulty with stairs.

There is a bar that you can hear when they have entertainment which is not really close but the noise does travel, it didn't disturb us too much but worth bearing in mind.

All in all though we had a lovely relaxing time during our stay. Thanks Steve.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the touble to write a review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. The live entertainment you could hear is from the complex attached to the hotel nearby and as you say creates a little background music.It is only usually high season and, like yourself, we do not find it disturbs us. We have actually had a meal at the restraurant and enjoyed the show several times! Thanks again and I hope that you book again sometime. Steve and Barbara

Joli appartement pour des vacances agréables

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé dix nuits dans l'appartement et ce fut un très bon séjour.

Les deux salles de bains sont un plus et la terrasse est très agréable.

Le reste de l'appartement est fonctionnel et on y trouve mille et un trésors laissés par les précédents occupants.

La piscine de la résidence est aussi très agréable pour les petits et les grands.

L'ensemble est calme et nous avons pu nous reposer.

Un bémol, une voiture est nécessaire pour faire les courses.
