“Fabulous sized villa, great location (walking distance to Fuengirola), value for money.”
Reviewed 29 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Was a little worried as saw one bad review, but having spoken direct to the really helpful staff at Marlin Global, my mind was put at rest.
This is one of 6 villas, some are permanently lived in (neighbours were lovely) long term rentals, and a couple are holiday rental properties. The bad review was actually for one of the other villas, which is now a long term rental (and has had a refurb since then).
Some of the photos do not do the property justice, the outside pool area is actually larger and nicer than in the pictures. Also the furnishing and layout inside is slightly different to the photos, but in my opinion bettter.
If you are a couple of families wanting to share a great holiday, for good value, this is for you. lots of bedrooms, lots of bathrooms, balcony for sundowners when the kids are in bed, 15 min walk or €6 cab fare into the heart of Fuengirola.
Its not the most modern or luxurious, but its clean, roomy, well equipped and a great family holiday home.
That said, I am sure it would work for groups of golfers or hen parties too.
Additionally, the booking, contact, directions and service throughout our stay from Marlin Global was exceptional.
I would definately book both this villa and with this holiday agent again.
Thank you for a great holiday.

Sólo nos podemos disculpar que las vacaciones no fue como esperabas.
La propiedad se anuncia en el precio que es, como una casa asequible que duerme muchos, cerca de instalaciones, tiendas, bares, restaurantes y una buena relación calidad-precio. No se anuncia como una propiedad de lujo o sería mucho más caro.
Hemos estado en contacto en privado, y hemos abordado todas las cuestiones que ha planteado, y llegamos a un acuerdo.
Me disculpo que te ofendió que no hablan español lo suficientemente bien, somos una empresa inglesa, pero hacemos nuestro mejor esfuerzo y tienen empleados que hablan español.
La propiedad estaba limpia y lavado a su llegada.
El problema de la electricidad fue con Endesa, y nos gustaría señalar que la propiedad no es en absoluto ilegal, Endesa son los que retrasan el proceso.
Nunca hemos tenido ninguna queja sobre este bien situado, buena relación calidad-precio villa antes.
Saludos cordiales

We can only apologise that the holiday was not as you expected.
The property is advertised at the price it is, as an affordable house that sleeps many, near facilities, shops, bars, restuarants and good value for money. It is not advertised as a luxury property or it would be a lot more expensive.
We have been in contact privately, and addressed all of the issues you have raised, and we came to an agreement.
I apologise that you were offended we do not speak spanish well enough, we are an English company, but we do try our best and do have spanish speaking employees.
The property was clean and laundered on your arrival.
The electricity problem was with Endesa, and we would like to point out that the property is in no way illegal, Endesa are the ones delaying the process.
We have never had any complaints about this well placed, good value for money villa before.
Kind regards
Marlin Global
