Everything about this place is good - we had no issues whatsoever, the management and staff should be very proud of themselves.
We arrived at 11pm on a Saturday night and were greeted by a very pleasant, friendly spanish gentleman who said we could check in the next day, at any time, as it was now quite late. We followed him in his car to the underground car park and he explained which bay we had been allocated - the same bay as our apartment number. He then took us up to our apartment in the lift which was really like a private lift as there were only 2 apartments on that floor. He then gave us a run down of our apartment along with a free bottle of wine, which was a nice touch.
The apartment was superb, clean, contemporary and looked new. It consisted of: 2 bedrooms, a shower room, a bathroom, fully fitted kitchen which included washing machine, tumble drier, dishwasher, oven & hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee maker, kettle and numerous pots, pans, gadgets and crockery, etc. They even provide dishwasher tablets and soap powder, another nice touch.
The living room had a dining table, two 2 seater sofa's flat screen TV, DVD player and Satellite box. The living area and one of the bedrooms opens up on to the balcony which was furnished with a table & chairs and also 2 sun loungers and a small table and stool.
The view we had was lovely, it looked on to the sea and the swimming pool and gardens were directly below us. The resort is well tendered, clean, tidy and well kept.
There is a small shop attached to the reception area for milk, water, etc. We didn't have either of these when we arrived and I wish i'd paid more attention and bought both as a hot drink would have been nice upon arrival and on hand the following morning.
The photos on the hotels website are pretty accurate and we were very pleased with our choice. I would recommend these apartments without any hesitation and will return whenever the opportunity presents itself.
The area is quiet and there is nothing much in the immediate vicinity but Nerja is a 5 minute drive away and Torrox Costa centre is also a couple of minutes drive away. We hired a car upon arriving at Malaga airport and the distance is 28.5km, which is around a 30 minute drive. I would strongly advise this as we overheard (not sure if this is true however) that the cost from Malaga to Torrox is 180 euros by taxi! Very expensive when you consider it cost us just 68 euros to hire a car for a week!
Try it, I think you'll like it and I hope you have a great holiday.
