Reviewed 3 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Absolutely perfect holiday rental. We booked at really short notice and the owner Scott couldn't have been more helpful, he responded very quickly to our initial enquiry and every question after that. The process of getting the keys was really easy too, we picked them up from a friend of Scott's who was friendly and helpful too.
The apartment is spacious, modern and light and was immaculately clean on arrival. Everything was as described and looked as good as in the photos. The wifi worked well and was fast enough. The tv had plenty of English speaking channels including kids channels. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The view across the golf course was amazing. The pool was clean and well maintained.
You really could do with a car at this place as it is up quite a long steepish hill, but I did see bus stops, so could be buses down to the bottom of the hill. At the bottom of the hill there are two good supermarkets, one of which is open on Sundays along with various bars and restaurants plus a nice park. You can also park easily here and walk to the beach in a few minutes.
We were delighted with everything about this rental and were very sad to leave. Highly recommend it to everyone.

“First family holiday abroad - lovely apartment.”
Reviewed 12 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I have just returned from a week at this apartment and have had a lovely holiday. The apartment was very homely and we settled in very quickly; it was very clean and well equipped with a dishwasher and washing machine. The property had air conditioning, free Wi-Fi and UK TV channels, which was great to keep my little ones entertained (Cbeebies) when we cooked tea etc. The apartment overlooks the swimming pool and gardens and the golf course, the views from the apartment are lovely and the balcony is spacious.

The apartment is spacious and both bedrooms are big enough to fit in a travel cot. There are shutters to the bedroom windows (assuming for security when the apartment is empty),which provided ideal blackout blinds – which meant our baby slept for longer than she normally does at home! There were also plenty of blankets and pillows and sheets for the travel cot.

There is an underground car park which is accessed by remote locking gates. This kept the car nice and cool and provides peace of mind with security. There is a lift directly from the underground garage which takes you to all floors; the apartment is located on the 2nd floor to the left of the lift. We hired a car for the week, and the property is well located for sightseeing. It is easy to find and the directions sent by Scott (the owner) were clear.

The apartment is located on a lovely complex within walking distance of the club house and driving range (both serve food) and also a number of other restaurants – some serving food all day, which was handy for us with small children who wouldn’t stay up too late for the rest of the restaurants to open. The apartment is on a hill, but was do-able – even with two children in a buggy however, I would recommend hiring a car.

We booked with fairly short notice and it was an easy process – a security deposit is taken at the time of booking, but this is refunded after a couple of weeks. Scott (the owner) had posted us the keys so we were able to go straight to the apartment after collecting the hire car. This was ideal after an early flight and two very tired toddlers!

All in all we had a lovely family holiday; our first taking two children abroad. We will definitely be booking again and hopefully stay for longer next time.

Spent a wonderful 10 relaxing days in this appartment. A real home from home with everything you could need provided. 1 minute walk to the golf club. Underground parking was welcome as it kept the car cool. Great views from the appartment, UK TV channels were available (which was useful as we could keep up with Wimbledon). Shopped at the Carrefour which has recently opened in fuengirola. There are several shops also on the resort, which we used to top up supplies. New board walk from Max's Beach to La Cala, takes about 45 min each way, with a pit stop at the Tropical Beach Bar, La Cala - make a great cocktails.
The deposit was refunded promptly.
All in all had a fab time and would stay again.

“Excellent Apartment”
Reviewed 6 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I have just arrived back from our second fantastic holiday at this Royal Golf apartment; Scott the owner is brilliant and nothing is too much trouble for him. The booking process was easy and we were allowed to book in earlier than stated which was great as it meant we could do a shop, unpack and still have time to visit the beach on our first day; the deposit was returned promptly too.

The apartment is very light and airy and extremely clean it is also really well equipped with everything you could possible need; the dishwasher and washer are a godsend as is the air conditioning. The free Wi-Fi and Satellite Television are great making it easier to keep in touch with family and make them envious with your fantastic pictures. Every possible need has been catered for.

The balcony is roomy and a great place to relax on an evening and watch the sun go down with a cold beer/wine after an hard days sightseeing/sunbathing. The pool area is lovely and has plenty of sunbeds for relaxing on we found that tea-times were a good time to unwind as most of the time we had the pool to ourselves.

The area where the apartment is, is brilliant and is very central for plenty of sightseeing, we had hired a car so never used the buses, but we have heard that they are plentiful. There is underground parking and lifts to the apartment which means no carrying heavy shopping & bags up the stairs.

All in all we had an absolute ball and we will definitely be back again very soon.

“Excellent choice of apartment”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

We have stayed at Royal Golf during the last three summers and this is, by far, the best apartment we have been fortunate to stay in. It is centrally located on the second floor with excellent views afforded of the neighbouring Miraflores golf course and the swimming pools and sporting facilities close at hand to the complex. 
The apartment offers ample space and is very comfortable to live in, with the luxury of air conditioning providing welcome relief from the warm outdoor temperatures associated with the summer period. An excellent Wifi service in the apartment allows for full internet access and there is a large sized modern television with a full selection of UK based channels, something which not all holiday lets still provide, particularly of late with the disbandment of given satellite signals for television viewing in this part of Spain.
There are two very comfortable sofas in the living room, together with a dining table and chairs for more civilised dining, if required. The kitchen is well equipped, together with plenty of cooking utensils and crockery to cater for large numbers at any one time. There is also a dishwasher and washing machine to provide a labour-saving convenience when on holiday.
The location of the apartment is in the upper part of the Riviera del Sol urbanisation which really necessitates the use of a car for transport to the nearest shops and beach areas. There is underground parking provided, accessed by the use of a remote controlled entrance gate and garage door. An adjoining lift from this area will take you and any groceries being carried to the same level as the apartment, which is situated very close by. 
The correspondence and help received from the owner, Scott Warden, throughout the booking process was first class and my wife and I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment as an ideal base for exploring the many attractions along the coastline. One of the nicest beaches is Cabopino which is less than ten minutes away by car. Fuengirola and Marbella are also within easy travelling distance, approximately twenty minutes away respectively.

My wife and I booked this apartment with little time to spare. Scott was very helpful and supplied us with the keys by registered post. As there was no one renting either side of our dates, entry and exit times were not applicable which was excellent as our flight back was at midnight.
The property lived up to its description and we were impressed with the quality of the furnishings and fitments. It proved to be an ideal location for exploring the surrounding area and the accessibility to supermarkets (get virtually everything you can at Tesco's) and good restaurants.
The off-road underground parking and lift to all floors was also an excellent feature of the property.
Thanks Scott for a really well presented property.

“Beautiful apartment, spotlessly clean, reasonably priced”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We have stayed in this area several times, so know it quite well.
The apartment is modern, very well maintained and furnished with quality fittings and facilities.It is spotlessly clean.
From the balcony, there are stunning views of the mountains and surrounding areas, fantastic to see a storm over them! To the left of the balcony you can see the sea in the distance.
You do need a car unless you are very fit, as most of the supermarkets are a fair distance away, though there is a small supermarket, a newsagent and several quality bars and restaurants about 20-25 minutes walk away in Las terrazzas.
Miraflores golf club is 5 minutes walk away, great for lunch and drinks.
In the apartment, beds are very comfortable, plenty of hot water for showers etc. There is a lift down to the secure carpark.
One pool was closed for about a week for maintenance, but the small pool was available, and there were plenty of sunbeds.
We got very good directions and information from Scott, the owner who was helpful and prompt in replying to queries etc.
I've given it 4 stars instead of 5 because at this time of year, the sun doesnt reach the balcony until late afternoon, and I like to sunbathe and read, onn the balcony.
The rental is very reasonable for the area. The complex itself is beautifully maintained inside and out, There are several residents living in the complex, and it was very quiet, apart fom barking dogs outside the complex, which unfortunately seems to be the case wherever you stay in Spain, and we have to accept it.
I suggested to Scott that some coasters for the table would be nice, as the furniture is too nice to spoil, and he has acknowledged my comments.
The security of the complex and apartment is excellent, and the caretaker is very helpful, speaking good english.
I received my security deposit back promptly, thanks Scott.
Very enjoyable stay in this spacious apartment
