Why John B Doherty chose Fuengirola City Centre
It offers everyting that I want in holiday accommodation in that while I can enjoy the benefits of Fuengirola when I go into the apartment the holiday feeling and atmosphere doesn´t end but continues through the beautiful views, sitting on the balcony and watching the little fishing boats coming home or on the roof terrace and enjoying the sun or the beautiful mountain views and the castle lt up at night.

Spacious roof terraces
We had a lovely time during our stay. Donna couldn't do enough for us. Location good and it was really like a home from home.
Negatives outweigh the positives
POSITIVEs - Donna the met and greet rep friendly and v helpful; apartment is walking distance to beach, promenade and big shopping mall. Apartment had lots of everyday items you need eg: kitchen crockery & utensils; towels; blankets; outdoor chairs and sun loungers with cushions. Roof terrace perfect for sun worshippers.
NEGATIVEs - excessive road noise from 4 x lane highway 100meters from apartment balcony; and items which desperately need replacing eg..bed mattresses which you can feel the springs in; threadbare towels and a dangerous sounding hairdryer.
OVERALL apartment needs a refresh/update.
Thank you Kirsteen for review. I have asked Donna to check all mattresses and replace where necessary. Incidentally guests in their review September 2018 refer to the 'comfortable beds', 'lovely balcony' . Towels are replaced at this time of year. The last five reviews )the latest in February 2019) all gave 5 star rating , ''''Amazing'' 'Perfect' 'Exceptional' 'Great place to stay'. You gave it one star. Maybe that speaks volumes!!
Great place to stsy
Great place to stay, very near the beach and the train station. Train to the airport is less than €3 and takes 30 mins.
I rang Donna when I arrived and she came within minutes to let us in and show us around, she was very helpful and friendly.
Would definately stay there again
Thanks Karen for taking the time to write a review. I am very happy to hear that you were pleased with the apartment and all it had to offer. Hopefully we will meet again.
Lovely apartment, comfortable beds, well laid out and a lovely balcony that was an absolute sun trap. Air Con was essential for a good night sleep and it was a very quiet system too.
The pool was very nice and we spent plenty of time in it as it was very refreshing in the heat of the day. Especially nice and quiet up until about 11am.
It was a quiet block and although about a 20 minute walk to the centre, it was a nice easy stroll and the beach was no more than a 5 minute walk with a few bars and plenty of sun loungers to rent.
Rented a car and the garage and private parking space was good for knowing car was nice and safe.
Lastly, great communication with owner from the day I enquired about renting up to when we got home.
Would most certainly use again.
Thank you Wayne for taking the time to write a review. Delighted to see that you were very happy with the apartment and that you had a good holiday with your family.Hopefully we will meet again.
Exceptional - I've already booked for next year!
The apartment was lovely. It was spacious, well equipped and very clean. Air con, Wifi and English telly which pleased the kids! The private roof terraces were wonderful - mountains the sea and a Medieval castle all in one vista. The shared pool was lovely. Not too cold, never too busy and the grassed area around it was very tidy and well kept.
Apart from a small incline up to the apartments, the local area is totally flat. The town was a 20 minute walk along the promenade, which was enjoyable. There are masses of restaurants, catering to all tastes and pockets. The local supermarket (10 minutes walk) is part of the Miramar, a large, modern shopping centre with favourites such as Primark and Zara. There were chain restaurants here for people who want to know exactly what they're getting!
For the kids, (and adults!) there is a Zip Line (6 Euro for 2 rides) and bungee trampolines (5 Euro 10 minutes) less than 10 minutes walk, and on top of the Miramar a go-kart track (15 Euro for 15 minutes). There is a small but fun water park (Aquamijas) about 25 minutes walk away. Don't forget to book before you leave for your repeat visit for a 50% discount. And get the bus to Mijas. (about 1.5 Euro per person each way). It's a beautiful village, totally geared up for tourists with restaurants and local craft shops. The bus station is in the town centre.
We got the train from the Airport to Fuengirola. About 12 Euro for four of us. It was spacious and airconditioned and we all got a seat! It was lovely to see the coast roll by. We got a taxi from Fuengirola to the apartment for about 10 ish Euro.
Everything about this place is easy! Totally relaxing, nothing to worry about. Brian the owner is a pleasure to do business with and Donna who looks after the apartment in Spain was friendly and helpful.
Thank you Rachel for taking the time to give a very comprehensive response which will be a great help to other potential guests.
The Apartment was all we could have hoped for with everything you have at home.Beds were so comfortable, fully fitted kitchen with all utensils. Sun Terraces were amazing (sometimes too hot). I took about 20 mins to reach the heart of Fuengirola, but this was a delightful walk along the prom. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to other guests as it has it all.
Thank you Ray, great to hear that you enjoyed the apartment so much. Brian
Fuengirola is at the heart of Costa del Sol. Take the excellent train service at the Airport (no taxi necessary) and be in Fuengirola in half an hour. It is an ideal centre for touring, with train service into Malaga or take the bus to Gibralter, Marbella or Mijas
