“A Great week”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Great location less than 10 minutes from Los Boliches railway along the promenade and even less if you know the back way. Restaurants near to apartment but the main Los Boliches restaurant area again is less than 10 minutes walk. Makes sure you wander the side roads where you will find a wealth of good restaurants.

The apartment is great as a home from home with that Spanish feel. The cupboards were well stocked with dry goods and other useful kitchen stuff from previous occupants, a feature that I welcome having stayed in numerous apartment with nothing at all on the shelves. Not having to take beach towels was another great plus in terms of luggage space that has encouraged me to not take them in future and buy them there. Lots of other bits and pieces to use in the apartment and on the beach. Certainly suggestions could be made to improve the apartment but that would be disengenuous compared to the positives - I certainly would not move out of here into a hotel !!!!!

A most enjoyable week.

I'm glad to hear you all enjoyed yourselves !

I agree there are improvements to be made......at the end of a very busy,
and fully booked Spring and Summer, some things need up-dated or replaced.

All suggestions gratefully received, as I've mentioned before.....
our aim is to make your holiday experience as happy as possible.

















We do try and provide a good background to your trip, making it as easy as possible for our guests to spend the maximum time enjoying themselves.

That's why we, for example, provide beach towels.....
They are heavy and bulky to pack.

Similarly, if we provide the tea and biscuits,etc. you don't have to go shopping as soon as you arrive, (which might be in the middle of the night ) or ration the loo paper, by the sheet, only to find there's no soap !

I'm astonished !

No, truly......the last communication I had with this group, was by email, on the 6th. July,(12.39.pm.) in response to my email, of that morning (10.03.am)thanking them for leaving the apartment in good order, and asking for their banking details, to return their damage deposit.
Last words from them :
"many thanks"!

And then this scathing review !

Although, elsewhere on TripAdvisor, I note that even the Ritz. Hotel has been awarded quite a few "terrible" reviews......!!!

I have no idea when they left the apartmemt, their booking was between Wednesday 26th. June and Wednesday 3rd. July 2013.

So they arrived one day after the previous group's two week holiday, who, leaving on the Tuesday 25th. June, left ample time for the usual clean, linen and towel change,and provision of a "welcome pack".

That "officially" left two days, thursday and Friday, 4th. and 5th. July, to effect the normal clean and change the linens and towels, before the next group's arrival, on Saturday, 6th. July 2013.

They arrived just after lunch, declared the apartment "lovely" and "spotless", and posted the next review, "Great week away", in which they said "nothing negitive" and again "spotless".....

Yet : " and quite frankly, if we had let the owner know, there is not a lot she could have done as in my opinion it woould have taken over a week to get the apartment up to spec.
It needs a complete strip down and a team of cleaners to give it a good going over".

How can both be true ?
Neither group ever met nor knew each other's opinions.

And then the previous "10 families" :
"Whilst you fully expect to have to clean up after yourselves when renting a self catering apartment, you do not expect to have to clean up after 10 other families before you".

I'm sure the "10 families before" would be charmed !

I find it impossible to understand how "Cava,milk and bread" can be "helpful", but tea, coffee, brown and white sugar, eggs, biscuits, jam, rice, pasta, flour, etc. can be unacceptible" ?

All the perishibles, butter, milk, eggs, etc, (including the tomatoes, which were placed in a bowl, with lemons and a head of garlic, on top of the Micro-oven, close to the chopping board,) are freshly bought and unopened, not "left-overs", from the previous tenents, as is implied.
If you happen to use margarine, not butter, that's fine....it's just a welcoming gesture......
you don't have to eat it !

Like-wise, in the bathroom, we supply shower gel, soap,washing liquid, conditioner, and lots of loo paper,,,,,but you don't have to use it.

I know, from experiance, how welcome a pack of Tampax can be.....

The intention is to welcome you, so you can come in, sit down, put your feet up and "BE ON HOLIDAY"......especially if you should arrive in the middle of the night!

The balconies :
Like most Spanish apartments, there is no outside space, (garage or shed ) so one balcony is for socalising, the other for utilities : storing "essencials" : folding drying rack, ironing board, sometimes a set of step-ladders, bucket annd mop, brushes and scoop...

Also, being a Family Holiday Apartment,the other "essentials" : lilo, small body boards, paddle tennis bats and balls, buckets and spades, snortle tubes and goggles, .....beloved of kids, large and small.
There for all to use.

Neatly stacked, they take up about 20% of the blind end of the balcony.....luckily, there being great views of Mijas, the mountains, and the Eastern beachside, there is room for a table and chairs.....
Seems a shame not to take advantage of the view....did this confuse ?

Likewise, in the living room, I don't expect people on holiday have much need for drawer space.....but might appreciate an extension lead, plug adapters, spare bulbs, candles, batteries, matches.......

It seems to me that some people are, by nature, more comfortable in a neutral, "empty", space.

Others enjoy the experiance of "living on the Costa" for a while.....
In either case, it goes without saying, the apartment is clean.

Two points....my sister,booked into an apartment in Fuengirola,because this apartment, 93. was already booked, arriving about an hour late,
( Airline delay )found herself left standing in the street, with two small girl children and all her luggage, with no-one to meet her, no contsact number, no note, no keys, no explanation.
Luckily, she had her Family at hand......when the owner eventually replied to her emails, he said it was "her fault, as she was late".....
That is a "terrible" (start to a)holiday.

Two, as I had agreed to wait up, till "after 1.00.am." to meet this group, with the keys, I took my dinner with me.....it had been a long day.
I put the remains in the freezer, and forgot, in the flurry of their late night arrival, to take it with me......the "carry out", dear reader, was mine own !

“Fabulous Views”
Reviewed August 12, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We travelled with our three teenage children - therefore we searched the Internet for an apartment and an area which would suit all our needs. Thankfully both the area (Los Boliches) and the apartment where a great choice, offering everything we needed.
On contacting the owner our email was answered within hours in the most friendly and helpful manner. She explained the apartment advertised was already booked for the days we requested but she was able to offer us an alternative- larger apartment next door to Apt 93. The reason it had not been advertised was due to renovations being carried out to it.
Once we arrived at Malaga airport we walked the short distance to the train terminal, were we travelled into Los Boliches_ costing 12.50 Euro for 5 people!!
The two bedroom two bathroom apartment was absolute perfect . located on the ninth floor of a quiet building it had beautiful panoramic views .
The apartment had a newly fitted kitchen and bathroom. The décor and furnishing were very comfortable and homely, portraying the owners quirky sense of style. There was
Tv and excellent wi-fi reception ( a must for teenagers).
Los Boliches had an amazing beaches directly across the road from our apartment lots of little shops and a wealth of cosy Spanish bars and restaurants, just sitting out on a restaurant terrace at 11 PM after a superb meal and finishing a bottle of Rioja fulfilled all our dreams of a perfect Spanish holiday.
We chose to stay around the Los Bolches of an evening but fifteen minutes walk and you had all the night life and buzz of the Fuengirola with its fabulous Marina complex of bars, restaurants and discos but we were away for relaxation and found all we wanted on the doorstep.
We will definitely return again .

Yes, is true.......sitting on the terrace, quaffing wine and watching the World walk by may seem "tame" but it´s one of the great pleasures in life...

See you all again soon, by which time I do hope all the renovations are done

Was a bit concerned when I read previous comment! Very glad we went anyway. Beautiful apartment. It was all clean and tidy, towels and linen all fresh and clean. Showers were just lovely after a day on the beach, kitchen had eveything you would need if we cooked! So many restaurants nearby and they were so cheap too. The biggest decision was where to eat! Would recommend this apartment to everyone, would definately go back again. Will be sorting out next years holiday asap.
