“Excellent appartment hotel with amazing ocean view”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We stayed at Fuerte Calcaite in october 2013. It was a great stay, with wonderful service and a beautiful appartment with a magnificent view of the ocean. We arrived after hours but were guided over the phone by the on-call service person.

Room Tip: blocks 4,6 and 7 have the best view. Block 1 is faced to the west which gives the sunset.

This apartment complex is nicely tucked away from the usual Costa Del Sol madness so you have a real opportunity to get away from it all.
There are nice amenities in Torrox, supermarkets, bars etc etc and a nice promenade with a quiet beach.
The apartment was a nice size, three bedrooms 2 balconies with amazing views over the sea and pool. A well equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher, fridge freezer and plenty of plates etc. TV had English channels as well as a DVD player.
The only downsides are the pool in unheated, just about OK for the kids but there was no way I was going in. Lack of sunbeds but this has been covered in other reviews and the separate kids pool was out of use.
Be aware that if you decide to use the underground car park there is a charge (fair enough) but the spaces are tiny. We had hired a VW Golf and it was too big to fit in any space and allow you to open any doors.

Thank you very much for taking your time in describing your holidays at the apartamentos Fuerte Calaceite and I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with your family.
You are right when you mention the lack of sunbeds at the pools. Unfortunately many sunbeds broke this season and we are already trying to find a solution for next year. Furthermore I also agree that some of our underground parking spaces lack the space to park a normal size car. If possible we try to allocate a different parking space but as each apartment has a predefined parking area it is not always possible.

We (family of 4) stayed for 2 nights. Lovely modern 2-bed apartment up a short but steep road from the beach road. We had paid a bit extra for a sea view which was probably worth it. Easy check-in and no requirement for deposit. Apartment was very fully equipped, even had dishwasher, washing machine etc so you could stay very comfortably for much longer. You can pay a few euros for underground parking or park for free outside in what looked like a very safe place. There are several small and good value restaurants at the back of the beach (10 minutes walk or 2 minutes' drive), or you can self-cater. The pool is lovely but there are insufficient sunbeds. The nearby beach is not amazing but typical of the area and quite scenic. Overall we thought this was a great place and I would think one of the best options in the area.

We stayed here in mid October. The weather was fabulous (warm enough to swim and sunbathe) and we took full advantage of our wonderfully spacious balcony with glorious sea views. We booked a one-bed apartment but for some reason (presumably because it was fairly quiet) we were upgraded to a luxurious, beautifully appointed two-bed apartment. The pools were lovely, with great views over the sea - although I can imagine they would get very busy in high season.

You definitely need a car to make the most of this holiday. The apartments are a 30 min walk from the nearest town along a busy road and the shop at the complex is very basic. Malaga Car Hire were reliable and we got a good deal. If you want to explore the region, Competa is a lovely traditional village in the hills nearby (40 min drive) with a fantastic market. We also enjoyed a day trip to Granada (1hr 15min drive) and visited the wonderful Alhambra Moorish palaces there (advance booking is essential!). Closer to home, we preferred Nerja to Torrox and loved it's charming bakeries, grocers and charcuteries selling great local produce.

I would certainly recommend these wonderful apartments, which are much more luxurious than the 3 star rating suggests.

Tip: if you arrive after hours, make sure your phone is charged and you are able to call a Spanish number, as you will need to phone the staff to pick up your key.

Not much to say on this place other than we wouldn't go back for a few reasons.

1. Its in the middle of nowhere and lacks atmosphere.
2. You need to cross a busy road to get to a small beach.
3. Small pools meaning rammed when its busy.
4. A small amount of sunbeds, take your own
5. Apartment was dirty and drab.
6. Expensive for what it was.
7. Very thin walls so you can hear next door, upstairs etc.
8. And so on

Room Tip: Do not go in apartment 2131.

Thank you for taking your time in writing about your vacation at the Apartments Fuerte Calaceite. I am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us and in order to make sure that other guests make the right choice before booking I will answer some of your points as I believe they are important.

First of all I would like to point out that the apartments are not part of an hotel complex but that they are within a private community of owners and that all the apartments that we rent out are privately owned.

The apartments are situated on a hill between the two sea side towns of Torrox and Nerja and we have no restaurants or bars within the community. Also very important there are no shops or restaurants nearby or any other entertainment. Fuerte Calaceite is ideal to relax with amazing views over the Mediterranean sea. Also very important is the need to rent a car in order to go shopping or visit the typical andalusien villages of Nerja, Frigiliana or Competa that are nearby. One may also do longer trips to Granada, Malaga or Antequerra all within 1 hour distance by car.

Also the apartments are not frontline beach but front line sea as they are build on a hill and if one wants to go to the beach, which is about 300 meters from the apartments, they will need to cross a road with moderate traffic.

Within the community you will also find 2 swimming pool areas that have a great size for the community with sun beds. Unfortunately many of the sun beds broke this summer and have not been replaced yet but will be soon.

Nice appartment with sea view and well equiped kitchen. Unfortunatelly it was not clean at the beggining. We had to clean bathrooms after previous guests. There is a very nice pool open till 22h. Underground parking with pretty small spaces, especially if you have bigger car. The closest beach was rather dirty with grey sand and stones not good for everyday use in my opion. We have used the pool instead. In general - nice for one, maybe two nights on the way to somewhere else. Not much to do on longer stay. In case of bad weather you can visit Nerja Caves (15min drive from the hotel). They were a highlight of our stay in this area.

Room Tip: Take a sea view apartment. You will be able to hear the sea also during the night

I appreciate the time you took in describing your stay at the apartments Fuerte Calaceite. First of all I would like to apologize if your apartment was not clean on your arrival a fact that I find worrying as we do not give out apartments that have not been cleaned and checked previously. Should this happen again I advice to inform the reception immediately in order to solve that problem.

The beaches nearby have grey sand mixed with pebbles but that does not imply that they are dirty. Just a short distance by car from the apartments are very nice sandy beaches or if you prefer snorkeling there is a protected area with small coves that can only be reached by foot with cliffs and crystal clear water that is the natural habitat of a colorful flora and fauna.

Apart from relaxing there are plenty of marvelous places to visit like the typical andalusien white village of Frigiliana that has a factory that produces honey out of sugar cane, Competa famous for its Moscatel vine, Alhama de Granada that has a hot spring already used by the Arabs over 800 years ago and many other little villages that are scattered through out the Axarquia and each has something different to be discovered.

We stayed here for 2 weeks, end of August until beginning of September, in a two bedroom / two bath apartment, very well equipped, washer, drier, dishwasher, oven, iron, etc. Great for buying fresh fish and cook it in the kitchen. Nice pools, free safe street parking (a car is a must) and above all a quiet and tranquil place, no kids clubs or noisy activities. Stunning views from our terrace. Clean apartment upon arrival, housekeeping every 4 days. Good storage with big closets so you can put away your suitcases. Check-in and out was quick and easy. Nearby beach with very few people, calm and quiet to enjoy the sea with nice swimming. They accept small dogs which is great and convenient.
A perfect place to unwind.
