There are a number of attractions including zoos, bullfights, water parks, casinos and amusement parks. Inland you can visit interesting cities such as Ronda, Seville, Cordoba and Granada.
Train travel is cheap and efficient in the area, so it is easy to travel from Fuengirola to Malaga. It is also easy to reach attractions such as the Sea Life Aquarium, Tivoli World Amusement Park, Mijas Aqua Park and Fuengirola Zoo. There is horse riding available at the Hipodromo Racecourse. You can also enjoy the night life if you wish, with popular sites including Corry Konnings Bar, Mana Pub and Joy Disco.
There are festivals throughout the year such as Corpus Christi and even St Patricks Day. The Malaga festival is also well worth a visit and usually takes place in June.

"Best villa we have stayed in so far"
Our group has stayed in several villas on the Costa del Sol and we all agreed that this was the best one we have stayed in so far. The kitchen facilities were excellent; a coffee machine and an ice maker on the fridge were added bonuses and the dishwasher made things as lot easier for us. The wood floor showers and bathrooms were all very nice. We were impressed with the outdoor area which was larger than we have had in the past. It suited us perfectly as there was plenty of room for sun bathing and also to play games. There was also adequate shaded areas underneath the trees. The barbecue was very good and the outdoor dining area was perfect for our needs, we could comfortably fit 10 round the table and the preparation area beside the barbecue with a sink and working area also came in handy. We would recommend this villa.

"Very disappointing for the money."
The villa could have been lovely but was in desperate need of a complete revamp. The kitchen was totally inadequate for 12 people; no kettle until we asked for one and then it would only boil water for 3 or 4 cups. Totally unsuitable for people with mobility issues; they wold not be able to get down from the living room to the pool as it can only be accessed via stairs.. The apartment was damp and would only be suitable for two adults and a child. There was no storage in the apartment and all our clothes became damp. We ended up all living in the main villa; one person slept on a sofa. We paid for the pool to be heated but it was not on. We are still waiting for this money to be refunded after 7 weeks. We only received the full deposit back six weeks after the holiday.
In response to this review, I would like to say this is the type of client that any home owner would never like to have as guests.
The weather had been terrible with heavy rains starting 4 days before their arrival and continuing during their stay at the villa, with cold temperatures, what made simply impossible to heat the pool up to 28 degrees as they requested. The heating pump was working all day long and got 23 degrees with those conditions.
When they arrived, I showed them the villa. They said it was lovely and much bigger than in the pictures.Then I took some of them in my car and drove to the beach, supermarket, train station, etc, so nothing they could say that I did not treat them more than well.
The way the left the villa, with dirt everywhere, a lot of garbage bags smelling, stained towels and chocolate spot on the sofa, made me think of not returning any deposit, and it would be used for cleaning everything.
Then, and you can´t imagine how I regret,I decided to send them back the full deposit in order to compensate in a way from the bad weather conditions the had during their stay. Obviously, after reading their review, I was 100% wrong.
In 4 years renting out my villa I have never had any complaint and only great reviews, but when you have clients like this, all I can do is to learn from this experience for the next time.

"Excellent home with the perfect location"
We travelled to spend a week in Spain to celebrate an 80th birthday. 2 families with a total of 11 persons stayed at La Spinetta. The home is spacious and very well equiped. The 2 large patios and backyard with pool gave us the opportunity to play with young and old. A good size parking area gave room for our 2 vehicles; 1 SUV and a large minibus. Being a short 5 minute walk to the beach and all the beachfront shops/restaurants made the need for driving locally unnecessary. Had a fantastic stay and would recommend any larger group to consider this location.
