What a wonderful apt clean tidy very andulisian,The weather was absolutely fantastic 82f all week,The apt was Home from Home,Beautiful rooms wonderful views we even had English TV YES WE DID,it was a bit Techi but my wife was very impressed so that started the holiday on a plus,If you don't hire a vehicle its a lot of walking to the supermarkets restraunts e t c but there is a train every hour to take you around the complex,we found the taxis expensive cos we wanted to explore,it says in the welcome pack there is a pool which we couldn't find till thursday by ringing the warden dolly and she showed us where it was,i think in the welcome pack it could be a diagram of where it actually is,Also we wanted to go to Marbella for the day i asked the taxi's and they wanted 35 euros one way so dolly told us to walk to the fuel station along the side of the motorway and catch the public transport which we did and it cost 11euros per couple Return,in my opinion there could be more bars and restraunts in the complex overall a fantastic apt and a fantastic stay Thankyou Amelia.

This time was the fifth year in which we come to this cozy apartment in Pueblo Don Alberto.

The apartment itself had everything you need to feel at home and is well situated close to great tapas bars and walking distance (or quick taxi ride) to main tourist areas and excellent supermarkets. The apartment is very clean and stylish decorated.

The apartment has 2 bedrooms, one have twin beds, other have one double bed, fitted wardrobes and 2 bathrooms, a large open plan lounge with sofas, table & chairs, a well equipped kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine) and a large double terrace.

The apartment is finished to a very high standard with furnishings being new and in first class condition. The cleaning was faultless. The beds and bedding are particularly comfortable.

We particularly liked that the two bedrooms and the lounge gives access to the large terrace with tables, chairs and sunloungers and a very beautiful view to the sea!

We had a very nice stay each time, were exhausted every night after seeing all the sights. We would definitely stay in Pueblo Don Alberto again and recommend to friends.

The apartment made our stay very enjoyable in the beautiful Andalucia. Is convenient to all the places you would want to see in Costa del Sol (Malaga, Mijas, Marbella, Estepona, Gibraltar, Cadiz, Seville, Granada, Cordoba).

The property has a good value for the price paid!

However Emilia, our host was the highlight! She made us feel so welcome even if she was not there...

dont be fooled by the website,this is an apartment overlooking a 4 lane motorway,and the noise is incessant,also what you are not told is you have to walk along this motorway,within 1 metre of the road with heavy traffic doing about 90mph,we had to taxi in to fuengirola and back every night.the apartment is also up a very steep hill and unless you are very fit you will struggle.the apartment itself needs a lot of updating,very tired.i have emailed the owner and asked her to tell the truth about the accommodation,i shall be watching the website with interest.ken swinburn

Owner's Response: Dear Ken First I want to acknowledge your review and say again how terribly sorry I am you had a hard time during your vacation. As this is my home away from home which I am happy to share with guests, I regret the style was not pleasing. I own this unit for almost 5 years, and what attracted me personalty to it is the homey Andalusian style of the small complex and uniqueness of this double terrace unit with fantastic views of the sea and sunrise from every bedroom and living area. I totally furnished this unit 4 years ago with brand new furniture, fridge and oven, electronics. I am not looking for modern look of today style, I just try to add a personal touch. As I renovated completely one of the bathrooms 3 years ago and the terrace floors 7 months ago, I am trying to stay within that traditional Andalusian Style which I personally very much love and will try to keep the unit that way. To my fellow guests, please carefully look at the pictures to make sure the style fits your desire for the time you vacation. Nothing pleases me more than knowing you feel welcomed in my home while at the unit. I read a few times the description of the unit and reviewed the pictures of the unit. They all reflect the exact way the apartment looks. Again, as any of you is trying to book the unit, check every picture and reflect on the old style. The unit description states that it sits on the 3rd floor no stairs. When you as a guest do not have a car, please be aware you need to use the public transportation available across the unit, by overpass or walk to the unit.

Well again what can I say I feel like we go home, staying here twice a year, and we and have booked for next year.

We walk through the door and sigh as it feels so welcoming.

I can honestly say to anyone you will not believe the view it's awesome and the apartment if so well looked after.

Very easy to find and a very quiet complex, away from the hustle and bustle and very romantic.

Again Emilia thank you for the loan of your Jewel on The Costa 😄

Excellent Apt. fantastic view of sea, a lot of space and up to date fixtures. Wrap around terrace has morning sun and afternoon shade.

Owner is extremely helpful, communication is immediate and responsive. Have rented many Apts over 25 years in Fuengirola and this is one of the best.

From the Owner

I fell in love with Andalucia and everything which has to offer. The wonderful people and small villages, history and art, culture and music, the sea… When it all comes together it makes for a unique and rich experience. I kept coming back to see if my first impressions are still there. I visited back many times, and sure enough, the experience was always the same. I wanted a place with spectacular views of the sea, walking distance to the beach, close to wonderful Mijas Pueblo and Marbella. This is a dream location for me.
