Reasons for trip


We booked our holiday through Owners Direct (S5860) at 195 euros for the week. This apartment was on the 2nd floor (with a lift) fully secure with a gated entrance. The kitchen was fully equipped including a dishwasher and washing machine( which was very handy) with an airer on the blacony for drying. Also drying area on roof.

All the rooms were a good size. The lounge had sat. tv and English programs. Although there wasn’t wifi there, there was an internet cafe just around the corner. There were two bedroom one double and one twin bedded. Also 2 sofa beds in lounge.
The lounge led out to the large balcony with a table and chairs to eat out there. The balcony also overlooked a wonderful tropical garden with a stream running through with rock pools. There was also two swimming pools on site (outdoor). The bathroom had a bath with over shower, toilet and bidet, and sink.

The whole apartment was very clean,comfortable and relaxing.
We were picked up at Malaga by our host Michael (for a charge of 40 euros return fare) who was very courteous and helpful (we only had to ask).

There was everything you would want in the area including bars, shops and resteraunts (some takeaway). You could get a local bus to Torromolinos (apx 4.20 euros return) plus a local circuit bus (apx 3.50 return). Trains were from Arroyo de la Meil.(approx. 5-10 minutes on bus or a walk up hill). Local places to visit were Paloma Park,sea life centre,Puerta Marine(where you could go out on a boat to see the dolphins) Also an outdoor market near Paloma Park once a week. Town flat area for walking, flanked by hills. All in all a very good holiday.
