We loved everything about the El Mirador apartment. . It was comfortable and well stocked and the location is close to everything, It’s only a 15 minute gentle stroll in to the village were there a numerous restaurants and bars.
The view from the huge balcony is breathtaking and the pool is lovely , our two daughters aged 10 and 14 spent most days in and out of the pool.
We really hope to return next year.
Thank you Catherine for renting to us .
Just come back from a 10 day stay in your lovely apartment, it didn’t disappoint. The views are absolutely spectacular from every aspect. We found the accommodation and facilities fantastic. We had a trip to Gibraltar and the local water park too. Can’t wait to return again soon.
Comfortable beds and the flat was very clean and has everything you need. There are a lot of steps, but these were manageable for my elderly mum and it's a fairly level walk to the village Centre.
This apartment is simply fantastic.
Be aware, access issues for the less mobile as the only way into the accommodation is by many steps. Parking no problem in the visitor car park.
The views from the apartment are simply stunning. A large terrace is accessed from the lounge and both bedrooms, plenty of sunbeds, table and chairs. There are awnings to give shade across the terrace.
The two bedrooms are good size one with a double bed, en suite bathroom and the other twin beds, both with built in wardrobes (lots of hangers).
Both bathrooms are good size with a thermostatic shower over the bath.
Good well equipped kitchen.
New air conditioning in lounge and bedrooms.
We found the accommodation very comfortable and suited our needs perfectly.
We had a couple of issues during our stay but these were rectified promptly by Chris and Heather. Great service!
Will definitely book next year!
Just got back from this apartment.
The views are breathtaking.
The location is really good ( Alhough brace yourself for 'heart attack hill' the hill you have to climb to leave the complex!!)
This apartment would not be suited to a lesser abled person and this is not stipulated anywhere on the description.
The apartment is spacious, bright but definately needs modernising.
Namely the bathrooms and kitchen.
We were really disappointed in the bathrooms I have to say they are desperate for a revamp.
The en suite bathroom particularly needs a new suite and the tiles desperately need replacing- mould etc- not good.
We knew we would have to endure erratic weather at this time of year and were happy to do so thinking we would find the apartment relaxing and cosy at night but it really isn't.
The TV is the size of a postage stamp and absolutely no British channels other than sky news.
Although the owner responded to my text enquiry about the channels- She couldn't really offer a lot of advice with her being in the UK, I'm normally pretty good with the remotes at home and scanning channels etc but there were no channels at all on the very small TV.
There is a Spanish style Feature fireplace in the apartment that doesn't work.
It wouldn't take much to convert it to electric to make it more appealing and useable.
The twin beds are really poor quality you can feel every spring we thought they were more like camp beds.
The Bedding was tired with holes in.
The new air conditioning and heating system is ok but the the ensuite bedroom heater doesn't work.
There are light bulbs not working that need replacing- and the apartment isn't cleaned sufficiently we found old empty containers under drawers and under beds.
We spent the last night at the hotel in the village- which overall was far more comfortable with immaculate crisp linen and immaculate modern bathroom.
I liaised with the owner throughout the booking and stay- and she was very helpful throughout and seems to be very nice, however the overall impression we got from the apartment to summarise, is that a lot of things in the apartment are 'make do' which to us isn't satisfactory.
There is so much competition in Mijas Pueblo in terms of apartments, Fincas and Villas to let, we know that now from exploring the village, many with immaculate modern bathrooms etc.
I wouldn't rule out staying again completely because it's peaceful, spacious and bright.
However I would hope that some improvements would be made.
The kitchen only has one plug socket so you can't make toast and a brew at the same time, the plugs are too small for the plug holes , so you can't fill the sink and the cups are dirty with brown rings in bottom of cups ( pet hate- sorry! )
Toilet brushes are stained and dirty ( how much effort would it take to replace them monthtly)
This is all down to lack of standards of cleaning and attention to detail.
It would suit a family, there is a lovely pool but no sunbeds as it's communal so no option to lie round the pool however the balcony is massive and more than enough sunbeds on it plus dining table.
But you can't take the sun loungers down to pool which is understandable.
It's very close to the pool so it's workable.
All in all, we are glad we stayed as wouldn't have ventured that far up the village otherwise, and again the views just blow your mind they are truly spectacular.
So who knows, hopefully some things will be taken on board and some improvements made.
