We stayed at the Cerro Malpique 1 Apartments late July 07. After reading mixed reviews about the accommodation we went with an open mind and were very pleasantly surprised.
The accommodation was very clean and spacious considering we were in a studio apartment. The studio had everything we needed and more, including sky tv and a dishwasher. We had 2 balconies overlooking the square and sea to our right. There were building works near to us which were noisy during the week and started at 7.30am, but we were made aware of this by Direct Holidays so this was not a problem for us. As the apartments are in a residential area there were quite alot of dogs around and once one started barking - they all did - including during the night/early hours!
The poolside was quiet which is how we like it. There is no pool-side bar but again that was fine with us.
I do not understand why people are complaining about the 'steep' hill outside the apartments. If people did their research on the resort they would see that all of the hotels/apartments are situated on a hillside with the square at the bottom of the hill. All of the travel companies advise this too. It takes approx 6 minutes to get into the square and about 8 minutes walk to the beach - there are 99 steps to walk down in total as we counted.
Overall we had an excellent holiday and would stay at Cerro Malpique Apartments again.
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday by the pool or beach with no children running around, well priced, clean bright accommodation and dont mind a bit of walking down to the shops, bars and beach then the Cerro Malpique 1 is for you.
