“Excellent apartment”
Reviewed 23 June 2013 via mobile

We booked this for a long weekend, never having been to the Costa Del Sol before. We were very impressed with the apartment, all "mod Cons" and spotless. The supermarket facing had everything we needed and was so handy.
The whole area of Fuengriola is pretty dated, we travelled into Toremelinos and that also looks like it was left behind in the 70s, it is a pity really because the weather was amazing. The beach was was clean but the sun loungers we paid €8 for where heavily stained, so take your own towel with you, I had to buy one in the shop opposite but not a problem at only €3 to shield your skin from other people's deposits !!!! Yewwww
The food in the beach bar was no better than "average" but can recommend the freshly squeezed Orange mmmmmm.
Don't expect uninterrupted peace while bathing...... The African sellers/hair braiders give you NO Peace at all.... Every couple of minutes you hear "Nearly real Prada Lady", "PROPPA fake Ray Banns sir" .... Funny but annoying....
The aparthotel was the Costa Del Sols saving grace for us. Wifi was touch and go at times. The Air Con was the best we have ever had and was a welcome "friend" in the soaring heat. We found all the staff we met extremely helpful and pleasant.
Ask for a high floor, pool facing for the afternoon sun, they fulfilled our request with no problem.
Will not be returning to the area again, but would have NO problem recommending this accommodation.

Me and my husband stayed here for 10 days. All I can say is, it's fab!! The apartment was clean and very very big. The staff were lovely, and all speak very good English. Mary, the barmaid, was so friendly! The only downside was the lack of a kettle in the room, and the breakfast portions were very small. The A/C in the room, is very strong and you can get cold very quickly! There is a supermarket just over from the hotel, which is open till 9pm, and is very cheap. 2mins down the road, there's another supermarket, which has more items in it, and a (very expensive) clothes store on the floor above. The beach is about 10 mins walk, down from the hotel, very easy to find! The train station is about 3mins away, straight down from the hotel. There's some lovely cheap restaurants all the way down from the hotel to the beach. The more expensive ones are more opposite/on the beach. On a Tues, there's a terrific market on, about 10 mins walk down the main high street (where the train station is). The Port is about a 20 min walk along the sea front, and its a lovely stroll in the afternoon/evening. If you follow the main high street along for a few miles, you'll come to Solhail castle. It was 3 Euros each to get in, and it certainly wasn't 'all that'. The beers are very cheap! San Miguel being the most popular. Small dogs seem to be very popular in this area!

Room Tip: Room opposite the pool gets more sun and is quieter.

My cousin and I stayed at the Mediterraneo Real Apartments for 6 days in May. We were looking for a quiet holiday, lots of sunshine, and some nice meals - and we weren't dissapointed! Mediterraneo Real was perfect for our needs. We booked a one-bedroom apartment. Before going ,we read the reviews on Tripadvisor, and therefore requested an apartment on an upper floor, facing out over the pool. Happily, they were able to provide us with exactly that.

As others have said, it is located in the Los Boliches area, which is so much nicer than “downtown Fuengirola” in my opinion – quieter, but there’s still plenty of restaurants and amenities in the immediate areas (classier ones than “downtown”). It is a stone’s throw away from a large supermarket, so we stocked up on snacks, food for breakfast and lunch, and water –and went back on the last day for bits to bring home (chorizo, pate, etc). The location is on the top of a hill, so it’s a nice 10 min walk downhill to get to the beach – problem there is that after the beach, you have to walk 10 min UPHILL – this wasn’t an issue for us but might be for older people with mobility issues.

The apartment was immaculately clean – even passed my “run a finger along the top of a framed picture” test – no dust. There was an open-plan kitchen/living room when you walk in. The kitchen had a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, oven and hob, and of course sink. There was a coffee machine but no kettle (!). There wasn’t an awful lot of kitchenware, only 2 bowls, 4 side plates and 4 dinner plates, 4 glasses, about 4 each on the cutlery. The living room area had a 2-seater couch and a chair – both looked slightly worn, but not in bad shape. There was a small flatscreen TV and a DVD player. We never watched TV so I can’t comment on the channel selection. The bathroom had toilet, shower (GREAT power!), bidet, hairdryer, sink with cabinets/drawers underneath for putting away our toiletries. Bedroom had two single beds, one wardrobe (sparse on hangers, so you might want to bring your own) , and a large window overlooking the balcony.

The balcony was small but adequate – there wasa table and 2 chairs, and a clothes airer. We enjoyed a glass of wine and nibbles on the balcony each night before going out for dinner, watching the sun set. There was also a small closet with a clothes washer, iron, and ironing board – all worked well.

There was an airconditioning unit in the bedroom and in the living room / kitchen, with a remote control that worked for each of them individually – air con worked great (almost too well, we had to turn it off one night as we got chilly!). There was also a sound system in the bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom – so you could put on the radio in each of the rooms, or plug in a device like an ipod and play your own music.

The pool area was very clean and the pool itself was a nice size, but it was FREEZING cold so I only ventured in once for a quick dip. There were about 4-5 families who camped out around the pool most days. One day the children were dive-bombing into the water, splashing us on our lounge chairs and making a huge racket so we headed off to the beach – they also used the jacuzzi as a “kiddie pool” so we never ventured into it. Most of the other residents appeared to be scandanavian or british, and kept to themselves. Other reviewers have said the sun loungers looked old, but maybe they got new ones before we went as we thought they were in good condition and clean.

The hotel advertises free wi-fi, but thy clarified to us that it is free for one device only. As we both wanted to use wi-fi, we purchased a code to have the second device on wi-fi. It was only €10 for the week so that was reasonable anyway. I sometimes had problems connecting to the wi-fi in the apartment – on the last day I couldn’t connect at all, only in the lobby – but my cousin had no problem connecting.

Ask for a room facing towards the pool, as this gets the best sunlight in the evening. There’s no real “views” to speak of.

As others have mentioned, a downside is the heavy furniture. One night we were kept awake as the people next door arrived in late and were moving furniture around –made loud scraping noises, and the walls are very thin. Only happened the one night, but I can imagine it would be tiresome if it was every night.

Staff were efficient and pleasant any time we dealt with them. On the last day, we had a late flight so they held our bags in a storage room and we went to the beach - on returning, they let us use the shower facilities in the hotel to freshen up, so that was very handy.

I would have no problems recommending these apartments, and if I go back to Fuengirola on holidays I would most certainly stay in them again!

Room Tip: ask for a room on a higher floor if you want quiet, and facing over the pool if you want evening sun...

Recently booked the MR through an owner rental website.My wife and I and my two smallies were more than satisfied with this apartment ,As is stated , it has all the mod cons which make a good holiday, a great holiday ,The area itself (los boliches) is quiet and is not a place for the rowdy or raucous .The pool area is fine except for the absence of a shallow end which the kids could feel more comfortable with.The aparthotel itself is mainly populated by Finns who to my mind are very aloof and keep themselves to themselves.The area is well served by a mercodana and a cortes ingles supermarket within 5 mins from hotel ,Also at the end of the hill is the renfe train which we used daily to criss cross the costa towns .A word of thanks also to the lady with the lovely bright eyes on reception who helped with my on line booking on our last night.
So in conclusion ,A lovely hotel supported by a train station within walking distance ,A nice little restaurant bar run by the two antonios which by the way should be supported more by the residents of the hotel.A very comfy apartment which I could not fault.Many thanks to David and Debbie for allowing us the use of 104,We will be seeing you soon.

I can warmly recommend this hotel! We stayed with a toddler (1,5 y) and are very happy with the trip. Everything was smooth from the moment we checkin at midnight to checkout one week later. Room was very clean and modern and very well equipped (washer, full kitchen etc). Good location as the foodshot Mercadona is right next door and bigger corte ingles just two blocks away. Only a short walk to the beach and shopping street in Fuengirola.
Only downside with this hotel is the heavy furniture... when a neighbour moves a chair you can hear it very clearly!

Room Tip: recommend to book a room towards the pool - it is the sunnier side.

I have just returned from a 1 week stay with my husband at this apart-hotel and was very pleased. we arrived at 9pm and we were greeted by a lovely, friendly lady on reception, she advised us about free wi-fi and safe-charges and where to find a supermarket that was open late. we settled in and went out for milk and bread, we have never been self-catering before and were pleasntly surprised, mostly because we didnt have to get up at a ridiculous hour to go down to breakfast.
we stayed in a studio apartment which was the cheapest room type but more than enough room for a couple,(all on the ground floor) although it didnt have a balcony and we didnt know this untill we were checking in, it was ok at the time of year that we went but if it was a really hot, you might need a balcony so bear this in mind when making your choice, as it happened, it was only about 15 degrees while we were there so it didnt bother us. (there was a large opening window, which was nice)

overall, room was clean and tidy with a tv, large comfatable bed and a great little bathroom, shower was really nice always plenty of hot water.


the kitchenette is small but adequate with plates and cutlery, a couple of saucepans a little sink and a microwave/grill style oven, and fridge. there was an onsite restaurant but we never used it as im a fussy vegetarian, plenty of choice for meat-eaters though!

only bad thing i can mention is being on the ground floor can be a bit noisy as walls were pretty thin .

location was great, if u get the train in from the airport, get off at Los Boliches (2nd to last stop) and walk up a little hill and you are right there. its a 20 min walk into fuengirola from the hotel but we never found it was too far, lots of shops and bars to look at on the way.

very pleased with our choice of hotel, would go back but maybe stay on a higher floor.

Room Tip: choose a high room if you like peace and quiet,

Nice, well serviced, well appointed, comfy apartments. Fantastic kitchen with full size fridge freezer, 4 ring hob, microwave/grill, dishwasher and washing machine. About 10 mins walk from seafront. 1 min from supermarket. Quiet area which suited us, close to transport to all the attractions. Restaurant on site, reasonable prices. Pool area very clean, unheated though so bit chilly in Oct. We were here on family holiday and it made a great base.
