Good accommodation in the centre of Fuengirola

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartment, right in the centre of Fuengirola, just off the main promenade. Marina directly opposite the apartment complex. Beaches a few minutes walk either side of the marina. Endless bars and restaurants all within a short walk from the apartments. Plenty of bars and restaurants also in tree lined back streets and squares.

Apartment has all the required amenities, plenty of cooking utensils, micowave and hob if wanted to "cook in" but didn't bother as there were that many restaurants catering for every taste and every pocket, from fast food to top end dining. Balcony in a good spot for watching fishing boats coming and going in harbour, and views out across the sea and promenade.

The Feria festival just started as we were leaving. Massive festival at the back of the resort with fireworks, fairground rides and Spanish dressed in traditional flamenco dresses, etc.

We last visited Fuengirola a couple of years ago and there has been a lot of investment in improving the resort. Some of the work is still on going but did not intrude on our holiday. It appears a lot of the old fashioned hotels/ apartment blocks have been pulled down on the front and replaced with new hotels and apartments and a lot of the side roads have been improved and new bars and restaurants have sprung up down these roads.

We have found different parts of Fuengirola this time round and still loads more to discover. It is a perfect location for holidays especially in October as the sun is still warm enough to sun bathe but not stifling hot. Warm enough at night for shirt and shorts. Good mix of people in resort from young to old and a fair proportion of golfing groups. Did not see any trouble the whole time and was safe to walk around the back streets at night finding new bars and restaurants.

Only down side which in the end turned out fine is, if you have a weekend night flight, the Spanish Office is closed, so we could not leave our suitcases there when we checked out of the apartment. We don't think we were supposed to use the hotel luggage room, but we were in luck as one of the hotel guests had requested the key for the luggage room so we slipped our suitcases in whilst they were there.

One suggestion for the owners - it may be worthwhile considering investing in a safe for the apartment. We carried our money/passports around with us all week, on the off chance the apartment was broken in to.

Overall an excellent holiday.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Apart from the ideal location, you will not be surprised to learn that this front line, South West facing apartment in a 4 Star Hotel overlooking the Marina, with the beach on either side, is also a very popular apartment for the many other reasons that you will have quite clearly discovered and enjoyed; being close to all amenities including restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and supermarkets; and it is also only 300 metres or so from the bus and railway stations. We are sure that you too, will now readily agree that Fuengirola does rightly deserve its reputation amongst those in the know as the best kept secret on the Costa del Sol !

Good apartment - but...

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was good - clean, if a little "tired". ( kitchenette drawer-front missing; a shower door displaced from its runners; and the shower perhaps clean, but not deep-clean). The location (3rd floor close to a lift, and east-facing) was good; but our stay was spoilt a little by major road works immediately outside which carried on from 08:00-20:00 daily during the 2nd, 3rd and final week of our stay. This rendered the balcony unusable because of the noise and dust. (I thought it was unfortunate that this planned work was not made known to us at the time of booking).

The location was ideal for access to the beach, bars, restaurants etc. but some may find its proximity to some all-night discos across the street an inconvenience - we didn't because that noise was effectively reduced by the balcony doors, and further by the fact that the bedroom is located away from the balcony.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you liked the apartment, and the added convenience of being centrally located in a 4 Star Hotel on the seafront, directly opposite the Marina, and only 2 minutes' walk away from the beach, restaurants, bars and supermarkets. The actual timing of the roadworks which you mention came as a total surprise to everyone including ourselves and you can rest assured that we would have forewarned you had we known in advance. Even so, your apartment is South West facing and on the other side of the Hotel to the roadworks entirely, and we are therefore a little surprised that the roadworks actually had any adverse effect on your stay in the apartment itself at all, other than of course, when you entered and left the Hotel through the main entrance. Nevertheless, we thank you sincerely for your welcome and helpful comments. And to end on a high note, the roadworks are now almost complete and the improvements they have brought, both to the appearance of the Hotel frontage, and to the Hotel approaches, are truly impressive.
