“Great little Apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We stayed here in July and have just booked again for next year. We had a Sea View apartment and the view was fantastic, Its right on the sea front. The non sea view apartments look over the square at the back, not at all rowdy just bustling in a typical Spanish way. Which you choose is a matter of choice both are interesting in their own way. We found these apartments on a previous trip as they are an oasis of Spanish life with great fish restaurants everywhere and lovely bakers and a small supermarket within a moments stroll. Apartment is very clean and well looked after, yes they are small, yes the shower etc is small but as others have said it’s just like the photos, they are also very well sound proofed. All we want from our trips to the Costa del Sol is a nice clean apartment, a fantastic view, soaking up the sun on the beach with some good but not expensive restaurants to try each night. These apartments delivered just what we wanted.
The staff are very nice and helpful although you will hardly see them as they keep out of the way but are about if you should need them.
If you are thinking about booking just look at the photos as what you see is what you get. (Although there is one rogue photo on TA, if you look through them all you will see the one, it’s so obviously not these apartments!)

Just returned from a weeks stay in the Plazamar and have to say I was impressed. The location couldn't have been better, they are central to everything. The apartments are small with no separate living area but they were fine for us. The room was cleaned every day without fail and new towels etc given. We had a room overlooking the square and it was lovely although the room s overlooking the beach did have fab views but no sun in the afternoon. Our flight coming home was not till 10pm and we asked the receptionist if we could leave our suitcases somewhere, she just said that it was fine and we could keep our room free of charge till we were ready to go which we thought was brilliant. I would definitely go back to these lovely apartments. If you like steak go to a restaurant up near the Las Palomas Hotel called Las Albirizas, it was absolutely lovely the best meal we had all week

We stayed at these apartments in March for the second time. They are in a great location, right in the middle of La Carihuela with loads of great bars and restaurant within walking distance. Lovely clean rooms with good comfy beds. The place buzzes with Casa Juan on the plaza at the rear of the apartments. Well worth a visit.

We got back this morning after staying at the Plazamar apartments for a week. We were in apartment number 2, which faces a square of restaurants which got quite busy especially at weekends, but it also had the sunshine from about 3pm onwards (which I preferred). The seaview rooms cost 10 euros per night extra but you only get the sun till just after lunchtime. I suppose it just depends which view you would like. The rooms are basic and clean, and have everything you need e.g. cooker, fridge with icebox, plates etc.
The only gripe we had was that there was building work going on directly under the apartments. They started banging/hammering/drilling from 9am till about 6pm. Luckily we were out most of the day but the noise when we were in our room was almost unbearable. I know the landlady coudn't stop the noise, and she did apologise.
The locations of these apartments is great, right next to the beach, right next to the promenade which had more bars/restaurants than you could shake a stick at! and 15 mins walk from Torremolinos to the east, or benalmadena to the west, and a lovely harbour with loads of posh looking yachts. And if you like decent English grub, make sure you go to Nigel and Cheryls, their roast dinner is ace!
TBH I would recommend these apartments and would definitely book again.

Room Tip: Book plaza rooms sif you want afternoon sunshine.

This was our first visit to the Costa Del Sol and we couldn't have picked a better location than La Carihuela and The Plazamar is probably one of the best places to stay. Location is very central with half of the studios overlooking the sea (think you would have to book direct with them to guarantee sea view) and the other half overlooking the charming square. Reception is not generally manned but they have a bar/restaurant at the front so there is always someone around and you are provided with a key to the door so can come & go as you please. Comfy king size bed, nice if a little compact bathroom and basic kitchen facilties. Would definitely recommend and thanks to them for letting us have a late check out with no extra charge.

Room Tip: Sea View studios are E10 extra and would need to be booked direct - although the ones overlooking th...
