Good base to explore coast but disappointing apartment
A good base to explore Costa del Sol if you have a hire car. Nothing much within walking distance. Well maintained pool and complex but apartment itself was disappointing. We expected basic for the competitive price but the place could do with some TLC. Chipped plates, not enough mugs, pans, glasses. Wobbly old table on terrace and shower heads both need fixing. It looked clean on face of it but wasn't well cleaned. Found our 6 year old playing with a lighter she'd found down gap between sofa cushions! The neighbours who own apartment next door are very noisey at unsociable hours and people keep dogs in penthouse that barked throughout the night. We had a good holiday but wouldn't choose this particular apartment again.
Great property, had everything we needed. Bought preloaded data cards for our internet access. Lovely patio and the wind-out awning was a bonus providing some welcome shade as we used the patio throughout the day from breakfast till 9pm at night. Enjoyed the pool especially after 4pm when the sun made it like a cool bath, very pleasant after a hot day. We self catered as we played golf most days and we made use of the washing machine as it saved us paying for extra luggage. Miraflores Golf Club is nearby with their wonderful spikes bar and restaurant that welcomes both golfers and non-golfers and is very reasonably priced. The local agent is very helpful and key collection and drop off both went without a hitch. All communications with owner were swiftly answered as for us this was a late booking, only four weeks before our departure. We would happily visit this property again.
We enjoyed our stay in the apartment, which was spacious and very comfortable with a terrace that caught the sun all day and had far reaching views to the sea in the distance. The complex itself was small and very well maintained and the pool was not crowded. Sunbeds and fixed umbrellas were provided. We like walking so walking to the shops was not a problem. 15 to 20 minutes to Torrenueva with beach, bars, restaurants and supermarket, 15 to 20 minutes to Miraflores, with supermarket, bars and restaurants in the other direction. Spikes bar and the Miraflores Golf House restaurant were only 5 minutes walk away. Of course with a car these places are only a few minutes away with La Cala de Mijas, a larger and lively small town about 5 minutes. There is a frequent bus along the coast road, passing through Torrenueva to Fuengirola and also to Marbella. Trains from the airport stop at Fuengirola. Altogether a good base for a holiday
