Penhouse Apartment in Riviera del sol Mijas Costa, Costa del Sol, Spain - Shops, Bars And Resturants Close By And The Beach Only 10 Mins Walk
About Robert Twiss
My wife and i live in the UK with our two children and love to spend as much time as possible at our fantastic and very relaxing apartment in Riviera. We bought the apartment in 2007 and have loved to visit when we can. We have tried to make this place as home from home as possible and am sure you will feel the same if you visit.

Why Robert Twiss chose Mijas
The apartment was bought so that we had somewhere we could get away to leaving the hustle and bustle of the UK behind. It is situated close to all the usual amenities such as shops,restaurants and bars. The night life is quiet as all the bars have curfews till just after midnight so if you fancy a big night out you can visit many of the clubs in either Fuengirola or Marbella. I am sure that you will enjoy our apartment as much as we do.

Lovely apartment very clean and tidy. Supermarket nearby was very good and reasonably priced. Kitchen fully equipped. Pool bar very good , clean and owner very friendly.
Lovely apartment in a lovely complex.
The apartment is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We intended to let our girls (10 and 6) stay in the room up the spiral staircase but felt that they would be better off in the lounge as the stairs were pretty steep and it was boiling up there. Luckily, there was a fold out bed in the wardrobe. There is no air conditioning in the bedroom but there were plenty of fans so it wasn’t too unbearable (we stayed when it was really hot in August).
The pool outside the apartment was great, definitely the best of the 3 in the complex! There is a pool bar at one of the other pools but we didn’t use it.
There are a few restaurants across the street and a supermarket just further up the road. We hired a car so only ate in the area once and mainly shopped at Aldi rather than the local shop.
There was no way we were going to walk to the beach as it was just too far and would have been a pretty steep walk back up. We drove to a beach about 5/10 minutes away which was nice but there was a lot of jellyfish!
Overall, the apartment was great and the pool was excellent. The second bedroom wasn’t useable for us (hence the 4 stars instead of 5) but it wasn’t too much of an issue in the end. WiFi was a god send for the iPads and it was nice to have the English tv channels for when we had some downtime in the afternoon. Thank you Rob and Karen!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our apartment and it seems that you have got out and about around the area.It was a shame that you felt you were unable to use the upstairs room as the pictures on the site clearly show how it is accessed both from the balcony and from the room itself. Hopefully your girls were ok on the campbed. As you have said it is an extremely hot time of the year but the room upstairs does cool quite quickly with both of the windows open.
Hope to see you back sometime in the future.
Karen & Rob
From reading all other reviews our expectations where high.
The apartment itself is very nice. The kitchen is very small. But all other rooms were very nice. Our vacation was nearly every day affected by the neighbors. They were daily shouting and jelling and this also happened during this night. From this experience, we conclude that apartment is not sustainable to noise from neighbors.
The view from the terrace is very nice. We had some evenings with too much wind and it was too cold to sit outside. The location may be approx 15 min from beach. But we never used that beach. Is was not very attractive. We always drove to Fuengirola which was only a short drive. The communication with the owners was outstanding and very confident and did reply very quickly.
Thank you for comments. We are sorry to hear that you experienced noise from the people next door - this is not something we have had an issue with ourselves nor has it been mentioned by previous guests at the property. Unfortunately when staying in an apartment block you will hear noise from other occupants and that is something beyond our control.
There are many lovely beaches along the coast and within a five min drive of the apartment such as La Cala, Cabopino and El Bombo which are detailed in the information book that we leave for guests.
Great apartment - a home from home!
Just back from a fabulous 2 weeks in Riveria Del Sol staying at Rob & Karen's lovely apartment. The apartment has everything you need and is spacious and comfortable with a great alfresco dining area overlooking the gorgeous gardens and pool area! It is ideally located on a great complex, very secure and quiet with a great pool/snack bar which is reasonably priced. Literally on the doorstep are some fab restaurants and a great supermarket but still only less than 10mins walk down to the small resort centre and the beach. We couldn't fault the apartment/complex and Rob & Karen were a pleasure to deal with - very helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had! Without a doubt would recommend this apartment to couples and families - we can't wait to return!!
Really glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay. You will be welcome back anytime you wish to return, thanks again

All the beaches along this coast are absolutely fantastic with clean sand and beautiful blue sea's. The closest beach from the apartment is only a 10 minute walk but if you have hired a car the beaches between Fuengirola and Marbella are all worth a visit.
The apartment is situated 30 minutes drive from Malaga airport. You can also hire your car from the airport building at competitive prices. If you do not hire a car the local taxi's from the airport will take you straight to the door.
There are lots of places to visit from your base in Riviera del sol. Fuengirola and Marbella are only a 10 minute drive along the coast road and Gibraltar is a great day out and is only 1 hours run from the apartment. The village of Mijas in the mountains is a typical old Spanish village and is very pretty.
The local shops and restaurants are situated just outside the gate to the complex and offer a wide range of things to eat and drink. The local convenience store is 2 minutes from the apartment and sells everything you will need for your stay. There is a variety of different resturants from traditional Spanish tapas to Italian, Indian and English cuisine.
