If you are thinking of going to Costa Del Sol I would really recommend this absolutely fabulous apartment in a beautiful location. I stayed with my family for two weeks at this apartment and have got to say it was a great choice and we really didnt want to come home. The apartment was very clean and very spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed and more, the living and dining room were very nicely furnished, modern and very comfortable and the bedrooms were ideally situated within the apartment both with good sized ensuites and again very nicely dressed and furnished. The terrace off the lounge and double bedroom was comfortably furnished with lovely views out to the sea. top notch wifi aswell. From booking Marion has been a pleasure to deal with answering any quieres we had without delay and greeted us on our arrival and showed us around was extremely helpful and we felt assured that if we did require any assistance she would be there.
The apartment is in a brilliant location with shops bars and restaurants near enough to get to when you wanted but far enough away to be a relaxed and peaceful holiday. We hired a car which was brilliant because there are so many beautiful places to visit in this area but if you dont have one not to worry as the beach is only a 5-10 minute walk and there is a bus service that runs from fuengirola down to Marbella. all in all just perfect for us

"Perfect little spot"
Lovely apartment, just as described. Plenty of English TV received, proper wifi giving around 10mbps. El Faro is a lovely little village with a good mix of holiday makers, ex pats and locals. As said, it's a village not a resort so there aren't loads of bars and places to eat. There are 2 or 3 local bars/restaurants in the village serving good food at good prices and plenty of other places within walking distance or a short taxi ride. (Taxi rank at bottom of hill). El Faro has it's own beach within easy walking distance with sun loungers and a small bar/kiosk. Leave El Faro and turn left and you're in Fuengirola within 5 minutes, turn right and you reach La Cala De Mijas in 5 minutes. La Cala is a really nice little town with plenty of places to eat and drink, a great beach and plenty of shops including a big Mercadona supermarket. Drive a bit further and Puerto Cabapino, Marbella and Puerto Banus are within easy reach. Gibraltar is an easy hour away and worth it just for the drive. (Take the A7 not the AP7, avoid the tolls and enjoy the scenery.) The owner, Marion, is very friendly and very quick to sort out any problems that might arise. All in all, highly recommended for a relaxing break.
