Myself and my friend wanted a cheap holiday after finishing university, we certainly got this. Our apartment had a brand new kitchen, a bathroom (which had a shower and a bath), 2 seperate single beds and a balcony with a sea view. The room was very clean, and had most of the facilities you would need. The only problem with the apartment was that the hotel did not provide manuals for some of the things in the apartment such as the air con or the television which would've been very handy! The staff at the hotel were very friendly. We arrived at the hotel at about 10:30pm (spanish time) so we were very hungry. The receptionist called for pizza to be delivered to our room, which was also very nice and cheap! The staff were always willing to assist you with any queries you may have, whether this is about day excursions or the time of checking out.
We flew into Malaga and paid for a shuttle bus to take us to and from the hotel. This probably wasn't the best form of transport, as when we arrived at the hotel we saw that Tourmeulle station was a few seconds away from the hotel. Do not let this put you off though, the trains are extremely quiet, they are cheap and are regular. The train stations have self service machines which can also be translated into english. Also the trains have small television screens which shows you exactly how long it will be until the next stop. This is very useful if you are worried about getting lost. Be warned, the spanish trains seem to arrive very early, so if you are planning a day out you will want to get to the train a few minutes beforehand.
The area in which the hotel is situated is quiet, but there is easy access to livelier towns. There is a local supermarket a few minutes down the road which sells some english food but it is expensive. I would recommend travelling into Fuengirola (on the train) where there are many cheaper supermarkets to choose from.
I was very pleased overall with Vista De Rey and I would recommend to anyone who wants a cheap relaxing holiday.
