“lovely stay”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Myself and my husband are just back from 12 nights in Rosamarina. It was a lovely apartment, fantastic views to wake to every morning with roosters and horses braying. Very clean, spacious accommodation, there was a lack of storage for clothing, only a wardrobe and the air con was not very useful - didn't really work. The pool area is small but sufficient and very clean and well maintained. The village itself is a piece of heaven and the people couldn't have been more friendly. The owner of the apartment Alvaro was lovely and always on hand if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this to anyone and will definitely be back.

Having visited Frigiliana a couple of times when we have previously stayed in Nerja, we decided to swap locations and stay here instead.
All aprtments are self-contained with your own cooking facilities and a balcony with stunning views across the valley.
Easy walking distance of all local amenities and although no parking on site, there is plenty of on street parking very close by.
Not for the faint hearted and not recommended for anyone with mobilty issues. This applies to both the apartments and the local area as it is in the hills and the roads are challenging.

Room Tip: all rooms have a balcony with the same view, maybe better to go for a higher one if possible,some ha...

Nice property and a nice view with terrace to sit. Attendance a bit of an issue when you needed something, even when we wanted to pay LOL !! But overall the office manager was friendly and efficient. The apartment itself had everything that was needed, but you need to beware that they are not serviced except for towels. Very close to everything needed in Frigiliana and a really nice coffee shop and bakery just across from the Apartments. Definitely would recommend.

We have stayed here many many times over the years from the time our kids were small they are now in their 20's. In those days we stayed in the 3 bed apartment as we had the mother in law with us, it was fantastic clean comfy and totally relaxing. Later we stayed in the two or one bed apartment depending on what we needed. I have never had any issue with these apartments they are spotlessly clean the pool is very good and Alvor (the owner) has always done his best to look after us. We left it too late to book in 2012 and stayed at the Hotel Frigiliana (see my review) but we are hoping to stay in 2013 again. I find these apartments a home away from home and if you want home comforts they are perfect. On the negative side they could update the sofa's but its not really an issue. It's close to a new refurbished park and the locals are very friendly all in all I would highly recommend these apartments.

Room Tip: Book early. Ask about balconies as some are very small

My family has been staying at Apartamentos Rosamarina for our holidays for the last nine years. They are perfectly located in a quiet part of the new half of the magnificent whitewashed village of Frigiliana. Spacious apartments that the manager, Alvaro, will match to you needs. All with excellent views over the mountains, up to the village and down towards Nerja and the sea, which is just 15 mins away by car. There is a small pool with plenty of sunbeds, so you never have to worry about cooling off or finding a comfortable place to relax. The apartments are just like the photos on the Rosamarina website. They are very good value; the longer you stay, the cheaper they are per night. Plenty of bars and restaurants a short walk away and a massive number of possibilities for sight-seeing, playing sport and walking, and chilling on the countless nearby beaches.

Rosamarina is a wonderful and cozy place to stay if you are in the south of Spain. It was perfect for our family of 10 people from 15 to 85 years. But you need a car to stay here. If not it would be an extremely quiet stay. Easy access by car to Granada and Alhambra from here. And at sea level - 5 km downhill - lies Nerja with several beautiful beaches.
The beautiful white village of Frigiliana is peaceful and quiet and totally charming and Apt. Rosamarina offers very good value for money. Great apartments with wonderful views of the mountains and of the sea at Nerja in the distance. Small pool, but clean and very nice and with the same wonderful view. Everything is well kept and very clean.
One tip: The extra bed in the apartments is not comfortable for grown-ups.
Our family enjoyed the week immensely and I will be back!

Room Tip: You must be fit to walk stairs to stay here. Ask for rooms at the top if you are not happy with a lo...

We stayed for 4 nights in May while attending a wedding in the vicinity and thought the superior apartment was very well-equipped and comfortable. We had a large open plan lounge/dining room/kitchen, a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower and a balcony which you could access from both the lounge and the bedroom. The west facing balcony had stunning views of the mountains and the sea. Both the apartment and the communal areas were spotlessly clean. There was an attractive swimming pool with comfortable loungers and the whole building was adorned with numerous pots filled with colourful flowering plants. In addition to the key to our room, we were also given a key to the main entrance so we could come and go at any time of the day or night without disturbing anyone. On our leaving day, the owners left a note telling us that we did not have to vacate at 11am as stipulated in the booking information but could keep the room as long as we needed, which was very helpful as our flight was not until the evening. The only negative things were these: there were a lot of steps and we were right at the bottom of the block which meant we had to climb up and down the stairs several times a day (the apartments were set into the hillside with the entrance at the top). We also had to climb up several flights to use the pool (there was a gate at the bottom of the building with access to the pool but this seemed to be permanently locked); there were no sunshades put out round the pool - there were bases for them but not the parasols (we went to ask at reception, but there was a note saying 'Back in 15 minutes', which seemed to be there most times when we went past. I'm sure in high season when the place is full, there would be more of a presence of the owners. Frigiliana is a beautiful white-washed Andalusian village with the old town perched up the side of a mountain, full of little shops, bars and restaurants set into its narrow, winding, cobbled streets. There is also the town of Nerja nearby, just a 10 minute drive away, with lovely beaches and an attractive old town with a good choice of places to eat. We would highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the higher rooms near the entrance.
