After descending 24 stairs to the pool and then another 34 stairs to the level of our room, we found our terrace with no view (the hedge blocks a road below) and tired plastic furniture. We entered the apartment to find a dark small living area, smelling of old cigarette smoke, with a narrow, noisy spiral staircase up to the small bedroom. The bathroom was so tiny that it was hard to close the door. There was not even hand soap, let alone any toiletries. The shower drained way too slowly. There are numerous, less expensive apartment rentals in Mijas, but we chose to pay more and stay at La Jamisa, thinking it would be include more hotel services (it's listed under hotels on Bookings.com), but no daily cleaning was included. Instead we discovered a list of charges: 5 euro for clean towels or linens, 1,50 euro for a clean tea towel, 5 euro use of washing machine. Choosing a place with a kitchenette, we hoped to eat in a few times as well, but the kitchenette was so cramped, we did not want to prepare anything there but breakfast. Free wifi was an enticement, but we could not connect in the living area and it was weak in the bedroom. Wifi was fine from the terrace or the pool 34 steps up. We wished we had stayed at Hotel Mijas, where breakfast would have been included as well as a nice bathroom for less money. Although advertised as "in town," we still have to walk more than 500 steep paces out the gate to get to the roundabout at the edge of town. We paid cash up front for a week's stay, but departed a day early. It was a feat to carry our luggage. My positive comment is that the view from the pool was lovely, but not worth the price of the room.
