“Beautiful but be prepared for steps”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

In line with many reviews here, I have no complaints about the apartment whatsoever, decor and overall comfort a very high standard. Surrounding complex maintained to same high levels.
Word of warning. A car is a must & I wish we had realised this before booking. There is a very steep walk to the complex which is unsuitable for anyone less than completely physically fit & able! Assuming you have a car to reach the complex, there are many steps to get to the apartments and even up and down to the pool, difficult especially if you have a pram or kids.
Few minor things- there are no shops for groceries nearby and the 'shop' onsite is tiny and poorly stocked. As noted by other travelers, there is quite a pricey charge for wifi and you have to traipse down to reception to get it. Finally, we had mixed experiences of the reception staff, we were given incorrect bus stop information by someone which meant to had to go up and down the slope and we waiting in the sun in vein for bus for some time.
In summary if you have a car, are looking for somewhere peaceful, scenic with lovely accommodation (and pool) and are happy to navigate steps daily and travel to next town if you are looking for a choice of taverna to eat in- this is a good choice for you.

Thank you very much for your review and in particular for mentioning the necessity of a car not only to go shopping as the mini market we have only has a few products but also to visit some of the places nearby like Frigiliana, Nerja, Granada or Malaga just to mention a few.

Since mid July we have a free Wifi Zone near the reception.

We stayed at this hotel for a week in May and it was beautiful. The views were to die for and the apartment was clean and new. It was up a very steep hill so walking isn't a good option for any with disabilities. The area of Nerja is lovely and very quaint.

Room Tip: The beds were comfortable but the pillows were terrible so you may want to ask or bring your own!

Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us at the Apartamentos Fuerte Calaceite and I am happy that you enjoyed your stay. As the apartments are located on a hill walking up can be a bit strenuous and the villages of the Axarquia such as Nerja, Frigiliana, Competa… are definitely worse a visit.

Very modern apartment with large balcony facing sea. Nice and sunny in the mornings.
Swimming pools were nice and large but water was quite cold (April) - no heating.
Good restaurants in Torrox but restaurants close by were not open. Beds were not really comfortable.
Good parking spaces (free) outside apartments. Basically only German TV channels!
Wifi expensive.
Nice serviceminded staff in reception.

Room Tip: With balcony facing South towards the sea the sun will disappear after lunch, so afternoons and even...

Thank you very much for taking your time in reviewing your stay at Apartamentos Fuerte Calceite and I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your vacation.
Unfortunately Wifi is not free in the apartments but we are currently working on the possibility to have a free Wifi area near the reception. An other issue we are trying to solve are the English TV channels that are no longer available through satellite since mid April.

Stayed in 3 bed penthouse for second time. So loved it again. Views breathtaking. No complaints will be back again with the 3 kids. Not this year as the 3 bed apartment we rent is booked for dates we would consider travelling. Beaches lovely and location between Nerja and Torrox is ideal. Car needed but that was no problem

We visited Calaceite for the second time and we loved it, again ;-)
We visit in winter, so it is not crowded when we are there.

The apartment are mostly well equipped (washing machine, dishwasher, etcetera!) and have great views over the Mediterranean.

Beach is 400 meters downhill. We took the car cause it is quiet steep. Small beach, but nice.

This part of the coast is less overrun by tourists and has great villages to visit further inland like competa. Malaga is a 40 minute drive. Nerja 5 minutes.

Would recommend definitely for travellers who like to be independent ( we cooked "at home" most nights and ate on the balcony with the stunning view) and who don't need much entertainment: it is not a hotel.

On the downside:
- can be noisy: when fully booked, I could imagine that being a problem
- closest towns are 4 to 5 km.
- kitchen equipment varies per apartment, which is annoying. The apartment we had this year didn't have enough spoons, cooking tools etc.

Stayed here for two weeks in October 2013, beautiful one bedroom apartment in Block2 with uninterrupted sea views and the sun all day long on the large terrace. apartment was well furnished and kitted out with all the appliances including a washer dryer!The weather was superb, with average temp of 24c for the two weeks with unbroken sunshine every day.
This really is the best climate iin Europe!
the staff in reception were very friendly and professional and we paid for wi-fi at approx.3 euros a day. Apartment had satellite tv with full Freeview listings so great for catching up with the soaps etc.
Very quiet with beautiful gardens and pool areas, you do need a car to visit Nerja but Torrox is easily reached in a ten minute walk.
We will definitely return again.

Room Tip: All rooms have great sea views but blocks 2 and 4 face directly south, ground floor rooms have large...
