We booked because we liked the look of the photos on the website. Those photos really don't do this place justice.
The layout and comfort is fabulous and is located just of the large pool which never seems to get busy. It has everything you need to have a stress free holiday.
Maribel was excellent, great communication before, throughout and afterwards. The welcome and pack was a really nice touch.
In terms of location it's halfway up a very steep hill. The are a couple of bars and restaurants and large Carrafour around 15 minutes walk up the hill and it will keep you fit!
It's about 10 mins down to Caravahal Train Station and another 5 or so to the sea front. Therenis a decent range of bars, restaurants etc, and if you venture along, it's another 15 minute walk into Torrablanca that has more place to eat.
The trains are excellent! From Caravahal to Fuengirola is 3.60 return. Quick, clean and efficient. All sorts to see and do there including countless places to eat, drink and a great little fun fair.
We used the train to and from Malaga Airport (takes about 25 minutes). The rail link is about 300m from arrivals and cost 2.20 each one way (miles cheaper than a taxi 33 euros).
Off at Caravahal then 5 euro taxi to the apartment.
The train can get busy from the airport so you might have to push your way on but we managed it with 3 cases a 7yr old child and his wheelchair!
A lot easier to get on coming back!
All in all a great holiday and as long as you like walking or don't mind using the odd taxi uphill, you'll love it!!!!
We stayed here with our little daughter for a week, and I must say it is one of the best apartments we've booked in years!
Maribel is an excellent host, who receives you with a warm welcome and makes you feel at home. She's very responsive to all questions you might have, and has many tips about the area, places to visit, local habits and left us some nice Spanish drinks and food to get us started for the day.
The app. is very well equipped, 5 steps away from the big swimming pool and with a nice terrace and garden.
We will definitely book this again, thanks Maribel!
