Bonito apartamento situado en pleno centro histórico de Fuengirola. Muy bien iluminado y a escasos 100 metros de la playa. Equipado con todo lo necesario para pasar una agradable estancia.
Nos gusto: 1. La ubicacion, muy cerca de la playa, tiendas y restaurantes. 2. La limpieza. 3. Buena equipacion del apartamento con todo lo necesario. 4. Contacto bueno con el propietario. 5. Cama comoda. No nos gusto: 1. Plato de ducha demasiado pequeño. 2. Almohada quizas un poco blandas. 3. No hay aire acondicionado en el dormitorio. 4. Mal funcionamiento wifi. " En general buena estancia"
El apartamento es tal cual se ve en las fotos. Bastante limpio y cuidado. Está muy céntrico, cerca tanto de la playa (3min) como de los restaurantes. El ruído no es excesivo en pleno agosto. También cuenta con un ventilador de techo en la habitación y aire acondicionado en el salón. Las pegas son: la ducha es muy pequeña, es un tercero sin ascensor (viene bien para ejercitar la piernas), no tiene persianas ni terraza. Ricardo muy atento.
The appartment is exactly as shown in the pictures, great location in a very lively neighborhood with lots of pubs and restaurants, close to the beach and train station. The appartment has the feel of a budget hotel, there are basic necessities, but no 'consumables'. No sponges, dish soap or other soap, spare toilet paper, olive oil or spices. You have to buy everything yourself. Also the shower head wall plug is loose, so you have to hold the shower head yourself. Except for the shower everything was neat and clean. The one real downside is the wifi, it is a mobile network card wifi, which is sometimes very slow, barely loading (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps and at other times adequate for basic travelling needs. Watching youtube or updating apps is not possible though, we spend a lot of time surfing on our own mobile network. We never actually met Ricardo, we picked up the key nearby (he really went out of his way to provide us with a late check-in, which is amazing) and the check-out was very easy and straightforward on our own. As far as contact goes, he is a very friendly guy, tries to help you with whatever is possible and we really appreciate all the effort he put into accomodating us.
+ The apartment was super nice and clean. The location is great: very close to the beach, lots of restaurants and supermarkets around. Ricardo is very helpful. Always responds immediately to all the questions, and even booked a taxi for us when we were leaving. - The only problem we had was the wi-fi. You have to reset the router once or several times a day, and it usually stops working quite unexpectedly. Another minor thing which wasn't an issue for us, but might be for some people: the building is located on a street with several restaurants, so it might be a bit noisy at nights. If you are an early sleeper and like quite, this might be problematic. Other then that - a great place to stay in Fuengirola.
Ricardo's apartment is as neat and tidy as the pictures! Very nice! Some other reviews mentioned the shower being a tad on the small side. This is true. It is a small challenge, but doable. The apartment is quite close to the beach and very close to the streets where a lot of restaurants are located - no need to travel far for good food! It is also a short walking distance from the trainstation. Also, enough towels are provided and extra bedding if needed. All the basic kitchen utensils etc are provided. I did not know how the television in Spain works, and could not figure it out. BUT one is not there to watch tv. :-) The wifi also works well. Overall we had a good experience.
