My partner and I stayed for 6 nights at the end of May beginning of June (half term). We were looking for a no hassle sunny break - it’s exactly what we got. We got the train straight from the airport approx €5.70 for 2 people. Off the train and about two mins walk to the apartments. The apartment is on the 6th floor and can be accessed by any of the two lifts - or take the stairs if you want to work off that paella! The apartment was spacious, clean, tidy and has a great view over the beach and sea. The apartment had everything you need. It felt like a home away from home. The balcony has an incredible sea view and plenty of space to enjoy a meal whilst watching the sunset.
We hadn’t been to the area before but we text/emailed Chris when we arrived for recommendations of bars and restaurants and Chris was really helpful! It made our break even more hassle free!
There is a supermarket across the road that has everything you can think of and a market selling fresh fish, meat, fruit and vegetables at the bottom of the steps from the train.
The beach is less than 5 mins away and there are sunbeds on the beach for €5 per person per day - you could order drinks etc from the attendant .... but the apartment was so close we just nipped back if we needed anything.
At the end of a long day on the beach the pool at the apartments was refreshing and the sun flooded that area in the afternoon!
We ate at Bahia which is the square near the apartment which did nice tapas and pizza (recommended by Chris). We also ate a few times at padthaiwok. You can see it from the apartment - it’s delicious! If you are looking for a fish I would recommend either walking along the seafront (turn left) for approx 40 mins and you will arrive at Los Marinos Jose (recommended by Chris). - a bit pricey but worth every penny (it gets booked up so I would suggest booking ahead)
Overall a perfect week away.
Could not praise Chris and the apartment enough. His own apartment was booked for our dates but he went to the trouble of arranging for us to stay in one owned by a friend of his in the same block. He and his wife met us with the keys and explained everything. Apartment was beautiful, well equipped and clean. 2 minutes walk to a lovely beach. Definitely one to visit again.
The location is central for all the shops and restaurants and close to the train station. The apartment is very well equipped, spacious, very clean and the owner Chris couldn't be more helpful. Would certainly recommend this apartment.
A lovely spacious apartment in a good location. Easy access from train station. Close to beach. Good restaurants nearby. Lovely pool area.
Stayed a few times and it is always perfect, clean and fresh apartment great location and views. Will definately be staying again
The apartment is well kept,very handy for transport links and shops, being in Los Boliches which is flat is very suitable for anyone with mobility problems.
Apartment location is ideal, 2 min walk from station, local buses. We took the train straight through from Malaga Airport, took around 30 mins, perfect. We were even met by Chris at the station, there is a large supermarket across the road and a terrific bakery under the apartments, Apartment is lovely with large balcony , great view out to sea. Large choice of local restaurants with wonderful food. We will visit again and would highly recommend.
