Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 nights in this apartment which is in excellent order with a great view of the beach (only 5 mins walk away). It is situated about 15-20 min walk from the main centre of Fuengirola which is an advantage if you would like a bit more peace and quiet. Local supermarket 5-10 mins from the apartment and a bus service close by that will take you into Fuengirola. A nice pool area for residents which secure. There is also a roof terrace which has room for sun bathing or eating outside again with excellent views of the beach and castle. All in all highly recommended, good communications with the owner who gave us very useful tips for our stay.

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely air-conditioned apartment with great views on sea and castle. The owners were so kind to arrange a travel cot for our baby, so we could spend the week with our three children. The beach is within walking distance and in the neighborhood are a lot of attractions for children and adults, information is available in the apartment with folders. The clean apartment was well equipped and had a sea view french balcony in the living room and a large roof terrace. The complex had a nice simple swimming pool with depths varying from 50 to 200 cm and access to the parking garage. The nearby shopping mall ‘Miramar’ has a large supermarket and several clothing, toys and electronics stores. We had a wonderful time staying in the apartment; unfortunately we stayed for one week but could have easily stayed longer.

Fab Apartment , Quiet excellent view

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean and spacious apartment with everything you need at hand and easy transport links from Malaga airport. Great pool and fabulous beach within easy reach. Although main road seemed really close we didn't notice the traffic at all. Nice and quiet area with a few bars and hotel where we were made welcome. A 25 minute stroll along the Paseo took you to the livelier bars, restaurants and to the marina. A bus stop was only a short distance away with buses every 1/2 hour going into the centre of town, if we fancied a ride. You get the best of both holidays! We would certainly recommend a stay and will be back .

Fantastic apartment for a young family!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent sized apartment for a family of 4. To be honest the pictures above don't do it any justice as when we arrived we were amazed on how clean and beautiful the surroundings and apartment was. The terrace (not pictured) is a fantastic place to chill or have supper and the loungers is an added bonus with fantastic views of the Fuengirola coast and castle. The pool is bigger than it looks in the picture above and is open from 1st of April to 31st of October and kids loved it. This apartment is a short walk to the beach and the Mirimar shopping centre which is good for free wi-fi. We had a hired car but you don't really need it as bus stops are nearby and a 10 minutes stroll takes you to the Fuengirola centre. Also if you are a sky digital customer you can take your card from your box and use it here so you get the extra channels. There is also a 24 hour garage nearby that sells most things to get you by. Overall great location and will be looking to book again!

perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment with our 4 month old and thought it was great. Just far enough from the madness, but close enough to walk to the beach and all the amenities. Only grip is that the pool closed the day after we arrived and we couldn't find anything to warn us.

All in all brilliant and definitely would return.

We loved this apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. Very clean, all the equipment you can need and the most beautiful ocean view. For us travelling with children it was easy to walk to the beach in less than five minutes and then when the waves got to big we just walked back and enjoyed the pool.

Can recommend this apartment to all families travelling with children.
