The property was excellent, very well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

Home from home really. All areas of complex were so well maintained, beautiful pool, shame the water was so cold which was quite astonishing considering the temperature outside. We did note that the Opalo gate was not locked, n fact no lock on it. As regards initial access we found that quite difficult until days later when we discovered the lifts, from them on absolutely fine. hi

Owner's Response: Thank you for your reservation and for your review. You mention you "discovered" the lifts. Full details regarding access using the lifts was sent to you on 4th August and you confirmed on 12th August you had printed this information. What a shame you didn't refer to the access details!

The apartment is modern, comfortable, well equipped and within a very nice, quiet community. The pool area is great, cleaned every morning and surprisingly quiet. We often had the pool to ourselves. Our children really enjoyed it and it's perfect for cooling off after a hot day!

Once we familiarised ourselves with the area, most days we would walk down to the beach & supermarket, which takes about 20mins. The beach is a little pebbly but this wasn't a problem for us (children may want to wear beach shoes in the sea).

The walk back to the apartment is up some very steep hills and not ideal in the heat, so we'd usually hop in a taxi (taxi rank is opposite the supermarket/outside Princess Diana Park) which cost on average €6. If you don't mind a bit of walking, you can walk back in the evenings once it's cooled down!

We visited Fuengirola a few times, catching the 220 bus from outside 'Max Beach' (beachfront bar/restaurant). Bioparc Zoo is worth a visit, we've been a couple of times over the years. It costs approx.€60 for a family of 4, but it is one of the best zoos we've visited. You can usually pick up discount vouchers in shops/hotel foyers.

You can also catch the 220 bus to Marbella (heading in the opposite direction).

Food recommendations:

'The Organic Cafe' in Fuengirola for delicious vegan/vegetarian meals and freshly made drinks. 'La Plaza' Italian Restaurant (above the OpenCor supermarket) is family friendly & offers great pasta/pizza at reasonable prices.

However, the apartment kitchen is well equipped so we often cooked then enjoyed a relaxing drink on the terrace.

We found that we didn't need a car, as we're happy to do a bit of walking and used the local buses/taxis. The owners are helpful and always responded quickly to emails before and during our stay. They kindly allowed us to check-out late which was useful as we had an evening flight with young children. We would certainly recommend Monte Marina and will consider booking again for next year. Many thanks!

Beautiful airy apartment

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen is well equipped. The beds are comfy. The pool is great. (open 11am - 9pm) The views are amazing. We had a very good time lazing by the pool and doing day trips out to various places. It was amazingly quiet at the complex. Loved every minute of our stay, didn't want to come home.
