We rented a twin room. From the window in our bedroom and the "living room" we could see the mountains that surrounds the striking landscape that El palo and Malaga are situated in, great view. Room was very clean with a very, very red decoration. Kitchen was equipped with microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, a stove and necessaries for cooking such... More

We had a great time here, the apartments are on a quiet street only a 5 min walk from the beach and less to bars and restaurants. The apartments were extremely clean with comfortable bed and lovely seating area. Basic self catering equipment but more than adequate for a holiday, plus eating out was very reasonable. There is a large... More

We stayed here the 1st week of November and had a great time. The studio apartment was immaculate and had everything we needed for our weeks stay. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well the whole visit. The staff were all friendly and very helpful and the large shared terrace was lovely. The area is typically Spanish with... More

This is very much an apartment rental rather than a hotel. Anyone looking for someone to be on call to get taxis, offer advice etc would be in the wrong place. Reception is unmanned. But the door has a sign which gives a phone number and the apartment number of the management. The apartments themselves are fine. Clean, comfortable with... More

The apartment itself was fine - and it's a good location - quiet, good local bus service, good for trips into countryside. The reception service was non-existent. When we arrived there was no indication which bell to ring to contact reception and so we disturbed other guests until we discovered that it was bell no 4. A child showed us... More

Okay fair enough it is not the Ritz, but what do you expect for less than £200 for a week! The apartments were a perfect size with an adequate bathroom and a seemingly brand new kitchen. The reception was generally unmanned however the owners lived in the apartment block and they were quite happy for you to knock on the... More
