We have a large area outside with our own sun loungers and if you are too hot a few steps takes you to the pool. The internal view of the lounge shows the patio doors which lead directly to our sun terrace. Most guests comment on how convenient it is to have a ground floor apartment so they can have direct access to the pool without going up and down lifts. Many golf courses are within easy reach and we can supply details of how to pre book courses at discount prices if required. Changeover dates can be flexible to make best use of budget airline flights. Short breaks can be considered. If you have a late availability flight please contact us for a late availability price. Many attractions are within a few minutes drive . Buses and taxis are available and although car hire is recommended the opening of train transport down to the beach and up to the shops/restaurants means a car is not essential. We also have someone available to do airport transfers cheaper than taxi prices. They are also willing to take you shopping and sightseeing so this could suit guests who do not wish to hire a car.

Wireless broadband is available as an optional extra to help keep down those nasty roaming charges by skyping home

The leisure centre has a fantastic range of facilities including spa, gym, tennis and Spanish paddle tennis courts (local charges payable). The Spanish regional paddle tennis championships are held here in August. If you are not feeling so energetic, there is a bar restaurant overlooking the courts where you can have a snack or buffet meal watching the tennis.

The road for walking or driving to Carvajal beach is now fully open and it also links directly to Carvajal station where you can catch a train to Fuengirola ,Malaga city or anywhere en route

We have much more detail and lots more photos on our personal website .Just cick on the link below

We have got around the Spanish itv/BBC switch off by installing cable tv and now provide all the English channels plus sky movies, and sport plus Spanish and Scandinavian channels

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all had a brilliant time fishing, visiting the zoo, shopping and sunbathing. Excellent spa facilities, very relaxing. The Kalinowski family Stockport.

The children loved the pool, it was very handy to have it so close to the apartment, and they had it to themselves most of the time, which was fantastic Lesly and Gary McDonald and family Jersey.

We had an excellent holiday. The apartment and complex were excellent and the location near the pool made it even better. We could just sit on the sun loungers outside the apartment and watch the children in the pool. We will almost certainly be looking to go back some time Glen Connelly and family Yorks. Without doubt this was the most relaxing holiday we have had for a long time. I am sure we will be contacting you again in the near future George Nixon and family Deeside.We had a fantastic time and it was brilliant to have the facilities we had. Dave was a great help as we did not hire a car.Hope to go back soon. Kelly Dawson ,Burnley.

el Higueron apartment review

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this apartment twice and are returning for a third time in July (what more recommendation do you need?). The apartment is spacious and luxurious and benefits from having its own private garden and direct access to the large (often empty) swimming pool. It is located in a peaceful and tranquil setting, but by car many attractions are within easy reach. The best of both worlds. It is perfect for children,our daughter is five now, and has enjoyed each holiday there immensely. The owners are very friendly and ensure that you are fully informed with all information when booking and that all essentials are in the apartment upon arrival. Finally there is an English manager on site which is very useful.

Owner's Response: We are always pleased to see guests return and although we cannot meet many guests personally Dave and Jean our property managers keep us fully informed at all times. The complex is getting better with each year that passes and I am sure guests returning will find a home from home for their stay.

Good accommodation & Perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is slightly dated but don't let that put you off. It's in a perfect and quiet location with everything you need.

We hired a car but it's by no means essential,as there's a mini train too and from the beach from the Hilton hotel up the road and there's the main Trainline which runs from Malaga to fuengerola,which stops off at every place you want to go along the coastline,the nearest station being only about 500-600yards from the apartment.

Mijas old town & benalmadena Pueblo are only 10mins drive away and are both vibrant places to go to for a traditional night out.

The apartment itself is ground floor which is spot on for coming & going too the pool,which is big,if a little on the cool side,but it was October/November too be fair.

Great beaches within 2/3mins drive and numerous bars/restaurants.

Would I revisit?.......yes,absolutely!

The property was described perfectly and the pictures matched the description.

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with the apartment being just the right size and location for visiting the beach and local amenities. Unfortunately the Spanish plumbing let us down for a couple of days and the missing shower door in the family bathroom meant the kids had to use our ensuite, damn kids. The use of the free Land train is brilliant and saves some serious hill walking. Overall a great Holiday and a great place

Great location

  • 4 of 5

My family & I stayed here for a week ,it's a great apartment with easy access to the beach by jumping on to the courtesy bus which runs every half hour,or it will take u up the hill to bars,supermarket etc,the apartment has all your needs surrounded by lovely gardens,the access to the pool is just a walk down from a side gate all the others have steps down to it,it would be easy if this one had the same as u could sit on the terrace and watch ones family playing around in the pool.🏄i must say don't leave anything out on the terraces at night as the sprinklers come on and the area is soaking wet,& I mean soaking,also if u have a early flight back don't rely on the taxi number which is left on the information pack(john & Sybil) as thay don't start work till 7am.....

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We know the area well and chose this apartment as it is removed from the hustle and bustle of the coast, yet everything is still accessible (even without a car ). The hotel land train is brilliant, running every hour down to beach or up to shops where a supermarket, tapas and pizzas are available (take note lovely tapas, at a very good price can also be enjoyed in the DoubleTree Hilton, only a 2 min walk from the apartment) The public bus runs from up at the shops to the pueblo, ( the old town which is just gorgeous) or alternatively down the hill, straight to the beach where some cool drinks and lunchtime nibbles await. We were catching the land train outside/opposite the Hilton, however a few days into the hol we soon realised the train would pick us up or drop us off right at the apartment. Great service!

It's a lovely apartment, set in beautiful grounds with very nice pools. Apartment itself is great and served all of our needs well ...with wi fi and air con top of our list. We were a group of 3 but apartment can accommodate 4+ comfortably. Has a very large master bedroom and en suite. Small garden which gets the afternoon and early evening sun .

Really have to thank Wyn for facilitating our late check out. This meant the world to us.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the favorable review which is much appreciated. We agree that the area is now maturing and guests no longer need to feel a car is essential. We must try the new tapas in the Hilton hotel. We have tried most of the other local restaurants. We look forward to welcoming you to our apartment again in the future. Wyn and Anne

Car: necessary

Minutes away from the Spanish villages of Benalmadena Pueblo And Mijas Pueblo directly off exit 217 of the autovia a short drive or taxi ride from Malaga airport. Peacefully situated in the mountains but still with easy access to a sandy beach down a newly built road.Now with a train service hourly from the beach to the hotel and shops so a car is not absolutely necessary.

Golf: We can help golfers by recommending courses we have personally played. Our favourite course for a leisurely game on a picturesque course where you can drive your sat nav buggy right up to your ball is Mijas Los Olivios. We can also recommend the clubhouse restaurant.Try Alhaurin for stunning views and a challenging course. Torrequebrada is one of the nearest courses and is a magnificent well established championship course. Another favourite of ours is Guadlahorce near Malaga which has a large Spanish membership and a beautiful old clubhouse.La Cala is a well known course in the mountains and I would always recommend a buggy here . The Spanish are starting to realise that many people like a good offer and many such as Mijas offer twilight packages at a healthy discount. All the courses mentioned are within easy reach as well as numerous others. Please contact us for further information
