Guestbook comments from the manager

WELCOME to all potential visitors - we have recently upgraded the apartment to offer our guests even better value for money than before. The apartment is bright fresh and cheerful. We have added equipment on both the interior and the exterior. We have a large flat screen TV, Wi-Fi connection and air-conditioning in both the bedroom and the lounge area. We have added many small touches too all with your comfort in mind. The only area not touched was the fabulous location - we didn't think it could be improved in any way as it is already PERFECT. This property is the holiday home you will want to return to time and time again. I look forward to meeting you all. Yours sincerely, Jackie

It is a very convenient condo with a kitchen equipped with essentials.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in a secure building with a lovely view of the Mediterranean. It is conveniently located to the train, grocery shopping and restaurants. The interior is comfortable and clean. We appreciated the little details such as hand soap and tissue as we arrived too late to shop on the first night.The kitchen has dishes, cutlery and utensils to prepare meals. I would certainly recommend this location to other travelers.

Perfect situation

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was ideal for our requirements, south facing and getting sun for most of the day, also being situated in the centre of the seafront meant we have plenty of places to go to without walking too far, also the town of Los Boliches is just minutes away. We will be going back!

tired apartment

  • 1 of 5

The location of this apartment is brilliant, easy access to shops, beaches and restaurants. The pool within the complex was very clean and the security in/out was comforting.

Unfortunately the apartment itself was very disappointing. It states it sleeps four (1 bedroom and one bed settee), at best this apartment is big enough for two persons. We were three adults and eventually booked another apartment because the settee was so uncomfortable and the Z bed given wasn't much better.

Whoever owns this apartment needs to seriously invest in it, the crockery was mismatched and chipped, the cutlery was few and far between and the cleanliness was ok. The views from the pictures are accurate but everything else is good photography.

The management team were very attentive and helpful, but to be honest there was nothing they could do (beside move us) that would have made up for the poor standard of accommodation.

I have traveled to this area of Spain for over 10 years, I use Home Away often and this is the worst experience of accommodation I have had - ever!

As a hotelier, I know reviews can be damaging but I also know feedback is important - I really do not want anyone else to be disappointed like us, hopefully this review will be listened to and some money invested into the apartment to bring it to a reasonable (if not good) standard.

It should be noted we ended up booking another apartment in the same block with through Royal Rental who were over and beyond helpful and professional and the apartment was simply amazing.

Owner's Response: We are very disappointed to receive just one star. The review mentions many good points and deserves more than one star. You mentioned * Great location, easy access to shops beaches and restaurants. * Very clean pool. * Good security. * Management attentive. It leaves your negative comments relating to Size of the apartment, Comfort of sofa bed and Condition of crockery. These 3 buxom ladies wanted budget accommodation even asking for discount on an already favourable rate. The description and photographs of the apartment are accurate. I took the photographs myself with a camera bought on the high street - no photo shop or touch up! The m2 area of the apartment is shown on the ad. Yes it is a small apartment but it does provide all you require for a great holiday. The crockery is a fair point and has been dealt with. The mattresses on the beds and the sofa bed where both new in 2015 and until now our guests have been happy. We often accommodate 4 guests. By their nature sofa beds need to fold hence the mattresses can only be a certain thickness. This property is perfect base for enjoying all we have to offer in Los Boliches and Fuengirola. As a hotelier you will be well aware of the difference between high end hotels with rates to match or budget hotels which offer all you require with good clean accommodation but with less luxury and frills. As far as we know you did not stay elsewhere during your stay. To all future guests, please read through some of the other reviews before you decide. I wouldn’t want you to miss the opportunity of great accommodation for the sake of one bitter review.

March stay

  • 3 of 5

The Property Management team (Jackie and staff) are excellent to respond to issues in the apartment and to welcome us. The actual apartment we rented is outdated in terms of furnishings in living room and in kitchen. The bathroom has been nicely updated. The view off the balcony is great, as is the apartment complex and pool. Just would not stay in this particular unit again.

The area is wonderful for walking and restaurants with all sorts of price ranges and menu selections. We did enjoy our stay in Les Boliches, Fuengirola.

Great little gem

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment with all you need just minutes walk away from the centre of Los boliches. Lovely restaurants steps away from the apartment. Place was spotless and well equipped and peaceful at night. Really friendly place and service from Jackie was 5 star. This property or any other in jackies portfolio would be my first call when visiting the area again.

The apartment is located in the Spanish quarter of Los Boliches, Fuengirola with many little shops and restaurants of all types to explore. They say there are 3,000 restaurants in Fuengirola. Many of these are set in typical Spanish fishermen's back streets. Although a quiet area, night life is readily available only a short walk away. There are 8 kilometres of sandy beaches with a broad, level, tree lined promenade. A cycle path is also included. In nearby Fuengirola there is a zoo, which is popular with young and not so young alike. English theatre, Aqua theme park, hypermarkets with cinemas, castle and shopping mall. A flourishing marina offers day trips by boat along the coastline or fishing trips and Dolphin watching if you prefer. The nearest golf course is Mijas. Nearby towns are Belamadena, Torremolinos and Malaga which are easy to visit using the train or and Marbella and Puerto Banus for designer shopping by taking the bus.
