Why John B Doherty chose Fuengirola

It offers everyting that I want in holiday accommodation in that while I can enjoy the benefits of Fuengirola when I go into the apartment the holiday feeling and atmosphere doesn´t end but continues through the beautiful views, sitting on the balcony and watching the little fishing boats coming home or on the roof terrace and enjoying the sun or the beautiful mountain views and the castle lt up at night.

Exceptional - I've already booked for next year!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely. It was spacious, well equipped and very clean. Air con, Wifi and English telly which pleased the kids! The private roof terraces were wonderful - mountains the sea and a Medieval castle all in one vista. The shared pool was lovely. Not too cold, never too busy and the grassed area around it was very tidy and well kept.

Apart from a small incline up to the apartments, the local area is totally flat. The town was a 20 minute walk along the promenade, which was enjoyable. There are masses of restaurants, catering to all tastes and pockets. The local supermarket (10 minutes walk) is part of the Miramar, a large, modern shopping centre with favourites such as Primark and Zara. There were chain restaurants here for people who want to know exactly what they're getting!

For the kids, (and adults!) there is a Zip Line (6 Euro for 2 rides) and bungee trampolines (5 Euro 10 minutes) less than 10 minutes walk, and on top of the Miramar a go-kart track (15 Euro for 15 minutes). There is a small but fun water park (Aquamijas) about 25 minutes walk away. Don't forget to book before you leave for your repeat visit for a 50% discount. And get the bus to Mijas. (about 1.5 Euro per person each way). It's a beautiful village, totally geared up for tourists with restaurants and local craft shops. The bus station is in the town centre.

We got the train from the Airport to Fuengirola. About 12 Euro for four of us. It was spacious and airconditioned and we all got a seat! It was lovely to see the coast roll by. We got a taxi from Fuengirola to the apartment for about 10 ish Euro.

Everything about this place is easy! Totally relaxing, nothing to worry about. Brian the owner is a pleasure to do business with and Donna who looks after the apartment in Spain was friendly and helpful.

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment was all we could have hoped for with everything you have at home.Beds were so comfortable, fully fitted kitchen with all utensils. Sun Terraces were amazing (sometimes too hot). I took about 20 mins to reach the heart of Fuengirola, but this was a delightful walk along the prom. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to other guests as it has it all.

Thanks Brian

Very nice sunny apartment with lovely views

  • 4 of 5

Nice comfortable apartment with nice sunny balcony and very sunny roof terraces. Spacious and well equipped, in a quiet location but only 20 minutes walk from the centre of fuengirola e.g. Shops, fish alley (main restaurant area) although many restaurants nearer the apartment , supermarket and shopping centre 10 minutes walk . Owners and staff very helpful, we certainly enjoyed our stay.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks in July 2013 and had a fantastic time. It was a very large apartment which was very clean and well-equipped with everything you could need. The balcony had fantastic views over to the sea and the neighbouring villas and had shade awnings which were very welcome. The roof terraces for sunbathing and drying clothes were wonderful and from here the views during the day and at night were stunning.

The bedrooms were a good size with single beds, and there was air conditioning throughout the whole property which was payable via a meter. The bathroom was a good size with a shower over the bath.

We spent our time between the pool and the beach. The pool had showers at the side and grassed areas for lounging.

It took about 5/10 minutes to walk to the beach, where there were sun beds for hire, beach cafes and further towards the centre, swanboats, a zipline and trampolining. From the apartment it took about 20 minutes to walk to the centre of Fuengirola. About 10 minutes away was the large Miramar shopping centre with a huge supermarket.

We would recommend this apartment - the lady who looked after it in Spain was very helpful. The owner also provided excellent service when booking via email

Brilliant Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apt in May 2011 and I couldn't fault one thing about it. It is very clean, well equipped, wonderful location to shops, beach and restaurants. Fantastic views from balcony, plus the added bonus of your own sunbathing terrace. Wonderful friendly couple who look after it who are more than helpful. I would recommend it to anyone, and will definetly return.
