Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Fuengirola - Cristal Seafront Apartment

Car not necessary as apartment is right on the seafront

Cristal seafront apartment has the most wonderful Mediterranean sea views from the terrace - situated right on the seafront at Torreblanca, Fuengirola.

With 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, the apartment is ideal for couples, families and friends who are looking for an extra comfortable apartment in the perfect beach front location. Dine on the terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and relax on the comfortable chairs.

The beautiful Fuengirola Paseo Maritimo is right on your door step and is over 5 miles long and lined with trees with level access from the seafront.

Getting to the apartment from the airport is so easy and fast, once at Malaga airport why not catch the train. The new train station at the Airport Terminal 3 is now very close to the Arrivals Hall and the fare is just over 2 Euros. (Children under 6 years travel free). The trains run every 20 minutes and the journey takes 30 minutes - the trains are always on time. From Torreblanca Station it is just a 3 to 4 minute walk (slightly downhill) to the seafront apartment; you can actually see the apartment building from the station and save on taxis and car hire. Alternatively there are taxis waiting outside the airport, fare to Fuengirola is about 35 Euros and takes approximately 20 minutes.

A car is not essential as the apartment is right on the seafront. However should you wish to hire a car there are many local companies who will deliver to the apartment and all the National companies are at the airport. Free parking is available on the seafront or directly behind the apartment.

Fuengirola is extremely family friendly and the Aqua Park is a great day out for all the family. The local Zoo, recently renamed Bio Parc Fuengirola is located just behind the New Town Hall - it is well worth a visit. During July and August it is open until midnight so that you can see the nocturnal animals.

The beautiful promenade which stretches from the Castle to Torreblanca is over 5 miles of beach and harbour - great for walking, jogging and cycling. Fuengirola was one of the original towns along the coast which existed well before the tourism boom with its narrow streets and lovely church. All the streets around the seafront are full of bars and restaurants.

CRISTAL apartment is at the quieter end of the seafront and there are many good restaurants and bars right on your doorstep. Just by the entrance to the building there is a small Deli and the Calypso Bar.

The apartment will be available from 14.00 on arrival day and be vacated by 11.00 on departure day unless other arrangements have been agreed. If you have an early arrival time I will do my best to have the apartment ready for you to go straight in on arrival. From the time of arriving at Malaga Airport you can usually be in the apartment and ready to start your holiday in just over an hour.

I will meet you at the apartment with the keys, show you around and answer any questions. During your holiday, I am always available if you need any assistance.

For internet access - there is FREE Wifi in the apartment and when out and about there are many areas in Fuengirola with free WiFi. Remember to bring your EHIC card, original card is required at the Health Centre/Hospital should treatment be necessary.

Travel insurance is also recommended for all members of your party.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jenny, Just wanted to thank you for a fabulous stay at your lovely apartment. The photos don't do it justice. A home from home with everything you could need for holiday home comforts. We will definitely be back, sooner rather than later.

Thank you Jenny.

With kind regards from Sharron & Louise.

Our Wonderful Stay this apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a most wonderful time -this apartment exceeded our expectations.

Beautifully decorated and immaculately clean, home away from home, there is everything you need here. We have stayed in lots of different accommodation down through the years and I can honestly say this is the best place we have ever stayed! we are just sorry we didn't find this gem sooner!

Just jump on the Fuengirola train from Malaga airport and you are in Torreblanca in less than 30 minutes.

From the apartment you are 5 minutes from train station.

It is a stones through to the beach, the view from the balcony is stunning, There are shops, newsagents and restaurants on your door step.

Very secure building and felt completely safe there.

We would highly recommend this apartment.

Dealing with Jenny, from the initial email to leaving yesterday was a pleasure - truly a fantastic lady with her clients interests her number one priority. Thank you Jenny & Jimmy for everything during our stay and we will be back next year but for a longer stay.

Muchas gracias

Lovely Break, 23rd April-7th May 2011

  • 4 of 5

Dear Jenny,

Just wanted to repeat what a great time we had in your lovely, spotless apartment.

We have been coming to the area for the last couple of years, and this was definitely the best deal.

There were 3 of us staying, and we had plenty of room, the beds were very comfortable and the 2 large bathrooms were great.

The kitchen has everything you need, and there is a huge TV with the basic Sky package.

The flat is 1 minute from the beautiful promenade, beach and wild sea.

The buses to Fuengirola are 2 minutes away, and only 1 Euro a trip, they also drop you back closer than the train. However, nothing beats the train for travelling to and from Malaga Airport - less than 2 Euros for that trip,right in to the new building is brilliant!

Kind Regards,

Owner's Response: Thank you Grace for your kind comments about Cristal Seafront apartment and I am happy to hear you and your parents enjoyed your stay. I am pleased you mentioned the train service from the Airport as it is such a big saving. The trains run every 30 minutes, the fare is low - 1.55 Euros to Torreblanca station and there are even toilets on board.

What an amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a 2 week stay at this superb apartment.

We are two couples who go on holiday twice a year together and this is one of the best apartments we have rented in all the holidays we have taken (I rarely write reviews but felt this was really deserved).

The apartment is even better than it looks in the photos and the facilities inside are excellent.

We had breakfast and lunch most days on the balcony looking out onto the sea and in the evening went to different restaurants along the promenade.

We have friends who often stay in Torreblanca and they mentioned that a lot of the apartments in the area can be quite a distance from the beach but you really couldn't be in a better position here.

The beach, which is directly opposite, is clean and well equipped with sun beds and the food at the beach bar is first class.

We could not fault the apartment in any way, spotlessly clean, incredibly comfortable beds, beautiful bedding and towels.

Jenny, the friendly owner met us at the apartment and gave us lots of advice on places to visit, restaurants, trips, and bus/ train times which was really helpful.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anybody looking for top quality accommodation and we plan to return in May 2011.

Had a real good time.

  • 4 of 5

Situated on the edge of the bustling resort of Fuengerolla the apartment isn't in the most quiet of settings and the view from the balcony isn't particularly enhanced by the fish restaurant directly across the road which you look across the top of. That said getting to the apartment from the airport on the train was simplicity itself, and the quality of the apartment only bettered by the personal welcome from the owner, Jenny. Jenny provided us with useful 'inside' information and gave us the impression that if there were any problems at all she would be there to sort them out, very comforting when you are in a strange area. The view from the balcony?, well, look at the bigger picture and the wonderful sight of all that sea puts the restaurant into perspective. At first sight the pool seemed to be a bit of a disappointment but in fact my grandchildren and I had great fun using it and it was never overly busy.

On the plus side, as well as the apartment and Jenny's warm welcome most visitors in the area appeared to be Spanish, the beach is just across the road and there was always plenty going on in the evening towards Fuengerolla. On the down side, along with other 'aged' resorts the area is looking a little bit tired although I do understand that there are plans for improvements. If you want a laid back holiday then you don't have to walk much further than a hundred or so yards for the beach, the bar, a supermarket or a restaurant but if you want activity there is plenty to do and its so easy and inexpensive to get to using local transport.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Every year we rent an apartment and this one is without doubt the best we have ever stayed in. It was spotlessly clean, had everything that we could possibly need and more. The location could not have been better with the beach right in front of us and the amazing sea views, well we are already missing them! Jenny was so helpful with our booking and although we didn't need to call her during our stay it was nice to know that she was there should something go wrong, rather than the owner being back in England. We have just re-booked.

The beautiful Fuengirola promenade stretches from the Torreblanca to Fuengirola Castle, is over 5 miles long and completely flat - great for walking, jogging and cycling. Fuengirola was originally a fishing village and it still retains much of its charm with narrow streets and lovely Church Square.

Cristal Seafront Apartment is at the quieter end of the seafront and there are many good restaurants and bars right on your doorstep. There is a deli, selling fresh fruit, veg and bread etc, and a good bar at the entrance to the apartment complex.

Within a few paces there is a supermarket, (open until late) chemist, post-office/newspaper shop and telephone kiosk. ADSL line in the apartment offering free WiFi .

Torreblanca railway station is just 3 or 4 minutes walk away and links directly with Malaga Airport. As the apartment is on the seafront a car is not necessary and you can save £££'s on car hire and taxis and also enjoy a complete rest.

Malaga is easy to reach by train from Torreblanca station and you can visit the the historic old town and the lovely new port area. There are many museums and places of interest and the easiest way to see a lot in a short time is to take the open top tourist bus around the town. There are maps and timetables in the apartment to help you plan your visits.

Other Activities: Skiing - around 1.30 hours' drive to the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
