“REASONABLE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

The majority of reviews are "very good" and that to me is just about right. On arrival I found a TV remote that did not work, a safe that could not be opened and a couple of lights that did not work. However on reporting these a guy came up and fixed everything very quickly - it is just a shame that while the apartment is indeed clean, they are not so hot on maintenance. On the kitchen side one glass for the entire apartment and no sharp knives or scissors that would be useful to open packets. Towels in the apartment but no dish drying cloth which is standard everywhere else I have been. Comfortable bed. Great bathroom, English TV channels. Air conditioning and wifi both work well. Good location and very useful large supermarket downstairs.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have all day sun but you overlook a sports pitch which is floodlit at night so th...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

my partner and myself stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks and its 1 of the best hotels we have stayed in. i really don't understand some of the comments as everything was fine, fair enough some cutlery was missing but we asked reception and they didn't hesitate to get it for us. the kitchen is probably the best we have had during a self catering holiday, you have a 4 hob electric stove, an oven, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher (although we never used it), and instructions on how to use the equipment. the vast majority of 3 star hotels don't have anywhere near as much as that in the kitchen area. the apartment had air conditioning free of charge whereas most places you have to pay for it. the beds where extremely comfortable to sleep on and i aint the best sleeper in the world. the television was fine, we had bbc1, bbc2, itv london and sky news.

the pool area was huge but try not to go down too early as the sun doesnt usually hit the pool area till after 11 o'clock.

you can hire a mobility scooter for 60 euro a week plus 50 euro deposit, the information will be at the reception desk, the company deliver to the hotel. if you have walking difficulties then i would suggest hiring a scooter as fuengirola is quite a big place.

the main strip is only about a 5 minute walk so its not that far but the actual hotel is situated in a slightly residential place so its quiet at night.

underneath the hotel is a huge supermarket and its extremely cheap so you dont need to go anywhere else to get your shopping.

if you are eating out i would suggest dominique's which is on the main strip, you get a 3 course meal for 9 euro 75 and its quite a varied choice, try the carbonnara, its delicious and dominique the owner is a really lovely lady.

a 2 minute walk from the hotel is los boliches train station, we took the train to malaga, it was 7 euro for a return ticket which was excellent value and there is wheelchair access to the platform, when you get onto the train (i think its the middle carriage) there is a lower step that comes out so the wheelchair or pram can get on the train easily. the journey only takes about 45 minutes and its only the 1 platform.

we also went to gibraltar for the day, you can use euros there but i would suggest taking pounds with you as things are much cheaper in pounds, we had lunch there and the final bill had pounds and euros, £20 or 30 euro which is about £27(big difference). if you decide to go up the rock watch out for the monkeys as they will steal from you especially food, i was jumped twice cause they thought i had food and almost had my bag snatched by them so be warned to keep things close to you at all times. you can buy cigarettes and alcohol cheaper in gibraltar but your only allowed a certain amount due to it being tax free, also remember your passport as you will need it.

when booking excursion be sure to shop around as every place we went to charged different prices as much as 5 euro of a difference.

overall we will becoming back here, it cant come soon enough.

Room Tip: if you haven't got anything in your apartment ask reception, they are extremely helpful.

Apartment was spacious, but not well equipped. Pots and pans missing. Only 4 glasses and one cup. No coffee maker. No balconies were in the apartment, which was a disapointment. We asked reception for another one with balconies but they said we had to get two small ones then and pay extra. The fitness room was a bit strange, with the sauna and treatment room in one open space. Too hot to work out. And opening hours from 11 - 17 ! Not possible to go for workout before breakfast! Not good. The beds were uncomfortable with very hard madress. At night we often woke up with noice from pipes in the bath, so unfortunately we did not get a good rest during our vacation.

These apartments are excellently located for the independent traveller. Within a 5 minute walk of Los Boliches train station and a frequent (every 20 minutes) and comfortable service to Fuengirola (2 minute ride – 1.70 euros single) and Malaga (around 40 minutes – 3.50 euros single). This line also includes the Airport stop so if your holiday doesn't include transfers don't pay for one, use the train. Los Boliches is an unmanned station so leave yourself enough time to get a ticket from one of the two machines on the platform which do give change.

From Fuengirola train station it is less than 5 minutes to walk to the bus station where you can get direct bus connections to La Linea (Gibraltar) – 9.47 euros single and Ronda – 8.59 euros. Both these journeys take around 2 hours to reach their destination so can easily be done as day trips. If you can face a longer bus ride you can get to places such as Seville, Granada and Cordoba or even Madrid direct from Fuengirola. Bus tickets are obtained from a ticket office in the bus station where they can speak English and timetables and prices are helpfully displayed on the bus station walls. Who needs a bus tour when it's this easy! Buses run to the nearby white town and pretty tourist trap of Mijas almost every 30 minutes for a mere 1.50 euros each way – ticket obtained from bus driver.

The apartments themselves are most definitely suited to self catering. If you go expecting to be waited on hand and foot you will be sorely disappointed. They are very well equipped for short or long term stays. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which had a large bedroom with the usual European style two single beds. Mattresses felt rather hard but in the end caused none of the back problems we usually suffer. There was a large wardrobe (needs more coat hangers but not terrible), chest of drawers and two bedside cabinets with drawers. Living room had a dresser/sideboard and two fairly comfortable couches and was open plan to the kitchen/diner with a large table and chairs. The kitchen had loads of cupboard and worktop space, a full sized fridge with ice box size freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave and electric cooker/hob. There were no cleaning materials whatsoever in the kitchen eg soap powder, washing up liquid, just a broom and mop out on the balcony and a toilet brush in the bathroom. I swear these apartments are big enough to live in. As others have said the utensils are lacking but if you want anything ask at reception. They will log your request on a sheet and the next day it will appear in your room unless you need it sooner for which they will try to accommodate. We asked for an electric kettle and a hair dryer. As regards utensils already in the room, there were 4 small plates, 4 large plates, 4 shallow bowls, 2 glasses, 2 tumblers, 4 forks, 4 teaspoons, 4 dessert spoons, 4 knives, 1 cutting knife, 1 small pan and lid. There were also some other items which may possibly have been bought by previous occupants and left behind – 3 odd mugs, 1 cutting board, 1 ladle, 1 spatula and a lemon squeezer. We took with us our own favourite cutting knife and tin opener/bottle opener – there wasn't one. But as I've said previously it may be worth asking at reception before buying anything yourself. We also took with us and needed – washing up liquid, dish cloth, sponge scourer and tea cloth. We didn't attempt to use the dishwasher.

We rented the large in room safe for 2.50 euros per day (no deposit) and had none of the problems with theft that others have mentioned. In fact I don't think the staff came in our room except to leave the kettle and hair dryer. On the downside this meant there was no in-room cleaning – we were only there one week so we may not have been due to receive this anyway. There was also no sign of a towel change even though this is supposed to happen twice a week. There were also instructions to take your rubbish out yourself and deposit it in the containers in front of the building which is all a bit strange for serviced accommodation. I think the place is run on a minimum of staff to keep costs down but cleaning is definitely an area where they need to invest more time and money. The patterned tiled floor throughout does not show the dirt but it is dirty and we resorted to sweeping brush and collected quite a lot of dust and hair but it didn't make a lot of difference. The place is by no means filthy – we have seen a lot worse – but this lack of effort may put off those with very high standards of cleanliness. The bathroom was on the small side, cramming in sink, toilet, bidet and shortened bath/shower. The bathroom also had a slight odour/drain smell which couldn't be pinpointed to any particular piece of bathroom furniture. It seemed worse in the day and may have been coming from the general drainage system in the building. Again nothing too bad but it might put some people off.

What I really did like were the shutters. Every window and the balcony door had full security shutters which made excellent blackout curtains and completely shut out all light in the bedroom and helped greatly with any external noise. There was some noise from within the building. I think it came from above and below rather than adjoining as the walls sounded quite thick. The usual noise – chairs scraping, shutters closing, bathroom noises, but no worse than many places, and far cheaper. You do get your monies' worth here.

If you are self catering the real icing on the cake is the ultra cheap high quality large Mercadona Supermarket located in the ground floor of the apartment building and open Monday to Saturday 9.15 to 21.15. Be aware that it is closed on Sunday. It's a normal supermarket – not a tourist one – and subsequently has everything you could possibly need for your stay at rock bottom prices. If you don't want to self cater there are many restaurants down the hill on the main road within 10 minutes walk. We didn't try the in-house snack bar and restaurant and we didn't use the pool are as it was too cold being April, so can't comment on these.

If you are looking for a cheap home-from-home and are happy to be independent this is your place.

We stayed here in April for 7 days and found the accomodation lovely. The apartments are spacious, clean and well equipped. We were able to hire a cot for our baby for the week and the towels were changed every other day. The apartments are well placed for exploring Fuengirola and the rest of the Costa Del Sol. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The playarea was great for our little one and the swimming pool area was great and really safe as it fenced off. The downsides were that our apartment did not have English speaking channels on the TV, there wasn't a view from our balcony and the walls were quite thin so noise would often disturb our baby whilst she was sleeping. The main issue that we had was the food. DO NOT EAT HERE! We booked half board expecting a buffet breakfast and dinner. However, when we got there we were informed that the buffet is not available during the winter months so we were offered a seperate menu in the snack bar. The menu included very bizzare choices such as 'fingers fish', 'pork meat in sauce' and 'squid rings'. The food that we choose to have was from the snack bar menu and this was pretty much inedible!! We swiftly got in touch with our tour operator and were given a refund for the half board element of our holiday. I would definately stay here again and recommend to others as long as you stay clear of the food!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with English speaking television and a poolside view.

It is the only place I have returned to, Have been to these apartments twice and loved it. We stayed in Belnalmedena for a change in November and although we loved it, missed these apartments as they are so close to so much and so handy for the train,
Never had a problem staying here, tv has English channels, never really use the restaurant as there are so many other places to try near by and we love to get on the train.

You can book day trips from the hotel or from one of many agents you'll spot in the local area.

Supermarket right below apartments and another supermarket below football pitch,

Little pizza place beside lower supermarket is awesome, as is little bakery on the corner.
Never an issue in this area, used atm's no probs, trains very handy, close to markets,

Have don't the day trips round 2 to 3 hour coach rides and then you can go to various places, we went to Tangiers which was very interesting.

Will def be back.

Oh someone did steal my sunglasses and towel from the pool area but had left them there for a day so people prob thought we'd left

stayed here for 10 days in february, the rooms are a good size, nicely decorated and have a fairly new feel to them, nice furniture, beds were comfortable enough, they all have a balcony which is just large enough for 2 people (and a aircon unit!) to enjoy a glass of wine on with a nice view of the mountains although there wasn't much sun on ours which we would have liked, we did ask the manager if we could move to a sunnier one but was informed that they are fully booked. Staff were polite and helpful, the rooms had been cleaned although they had missed a few patches particularly above the head board in the bedroom which had a thick layer of dust settled on it, the kitchens are very well equipped and come with a washing machine and dishwasher, as with all apartments there is always the odd utensil missing and if your one of these that is bothered by it then just ask at reception, we were missing coffee mugs so we had some sent up (although it did take till the next day to arrive).also there is a supermarket under the hotel that you can pick bits up from for peanuts. the only real complaint I have about this hotel is the poor level of sound proofing, we stayed in a room next to the road and while the noise wasn't excessive we could still hear the traffic outside, this in itself was not a major problem however we were also woken quite a few times to the sound of chairs being scraped across the floor in the room next door.All said and done, this hotel was very good value for us and if your just looking for a base to explore from then this place will do just fine. It is very easy to get to from Malaga airport as there is a train station which is a few minutes walk away. The train is also a great way of getting to other holiday spots along the costa. But if your looking for someone to spend all day relaxing at then your probably be a bit disappointed as I found the pool area and bar to be a bit drab, A few trees and plants wouldn't go a miss as it is just one big patio, a couple of billiards tables with a rectangle pool in the corner.
