I spent 1 week here with my mother in April and we had a lovely time.
The apartment has all the amenities you could ask for and was ideally situated between both Fuengirola and Benalmadena, a 10 min bus ride to each.
The train station is nearby which takes you directly to Malaga airport (30 mins max).
It's a short walk to the beach, a few restaurants and a local supermarket.
I would point out that there is a steep hill to walk up to the apartment so do bear this in mind if anyone staying has trouble with mobility.
A very handy booklet is provided by the owner explaining how to use everything in the apartment and which restaurants/bars are good to visit. Also further info about wider places to visit which is very useful.
Do try La Cubana bar on the beach... The mojitos really are awesome!! more
