Not surprisingly another late start! We decide on a lazy day and apart for taking the dogs for a walk we just sit around and talk. How good it is to just sit around and talk with old friends. We discuss where we will go for dinner but when the option of fish and chips comes up it is a no-brainer.so we drove a few kilometres to Fuengirola to the …
... from the 11th century. It was built on a Roman town; the Roman ampitheatre that was discovered in 1951 just outside its entrance is an interesting juxtaposition to the Islamic architecture. The Alcazaba is made up of towers, mosques and buildings and surprisingly beautiful gardens within its walls.
In the evening we arranged our transport tickets for the remainder of our time in Spain.
To thank Rubens parents for their ...
... up then laid the sheet back down and they were all hooked into the slits by the arms.. pretty clever idea, we wanted to tell this poor guy in Benaldemina he should do it too..) Then sure enough you see further down the line that they are all packing up quickly and disappearing, the sunnies guy chucked them all in the sheet again..he hadn't even had one sale! Another girl was about to get her hair braided, the lady was pretty rough and it was funny watching the poor girl. When the ...
... are just as much of a farce as the days. We'd normally start pres at our apartment around 10pm, then head out after midnight. Cos we were told they party hard in Malaga. The locals just don't know how to feria. Most of them pike by 2am. Those who stay out just stand around the clubs, not buying drinks. When you do try and talk to people, none of them can speak English. Even if ...
... kind of way. Parts of me are slightly envious of this way of life. In another life I could have been a hippy..... as it is, I lead a normal existence with a nomadic hippy slant on occasion.The Garganta del Chorro with Rio Guadelhorce flowing below is an awesome sight. The gorge itself it 4 km long, up to 400m deep and as little as 10 metres wide. The gorge is famous for the Camino del Rey, a 1 metre wide boardwalk built into the cliff edges. It closed in 2000 after a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fuengirola Beach
The tunnel under the motorway on the way to the beach from the hotel is quite ugly and unkept ,but it is not dangerous, to counter what we had heard before. We saw elderly locals walk there after dark so reckon it must be fairly safe. If someone would take ownership of this area and improve it then all would be well with this hotel.
OK...so a five star luxury all singing all dancing hotel it ain't.
This hotel is about 10-15 mins from the beach across several roads but once you've done it once and know what your doing it's no problem. The first choice reps even have a 'hosted walk' where they will show you the way.
Just got back yesterday from the Fuengirola Beach Apartments. I stayed there with family with ages ranging from 80 down to 17. I can honestly say everybody in the party enjoyed the holiday and didn't have any problem with the hotel.
The entertainment was a bit of everything. Granted it was fairly low key with a disco for kids then bingo and then after that it varied nightly.
Even though I drink shorts I found the prices of the bar very fair for a hotel. Most rounds were averaging at 18 euros for 5 alcoholic drinks.
My Nan who is 80 had no problem with the distance you had to go to get to the feungirola town and walked this with ease.
All round we all found this hotel clean and staff friendly.
Infact we are looking to go back at the end of the year.
Hated the place
Treadful place, staff unhelpful - could not go out at night as too far from town, through busy motorways and the fear of being mugged as several people had bags and wallets stolen en route to town. Food in hotel was poor as was the entertainment - except if you like bingo or juggling an odd evening. Unless you were very fit you were trapped in poor standard hotel paying over the top prices at bar - no restaurants near unless you count shopping mall nearby. Very unattractive view of building site and cranes opposite room.
Went with First Choice and waited 1 1/2 hours in bus (which was full for the duration) to get to hotel. Waited in queue outside hotel for 1 hour to book in to be told no rooms available, come back in 3 hours time
i went to airport and to see any flights to malaga and we went staight on the plane and this hotel called stella maris it,s becautial and it got swimming pool and supermarket it bloody cool go there
We miss chicken boy and lovely wayne!!!!
Hotel was spotless although the food wasn't up 2 much. The thing that made our holiday was the entertainment without it we would have came home on the first night, and that was only because we were dragged up on the stage to help. The bingo is a great laugh i won 3 times!!!! The entertainment staff are very friendly we even ended up on a night out with them and we became the entertainment. Hello waynetta ang chicken boy!!!!! you rock!! If you decide to take a stroll along the beach beware of the flower sellers.
I found my experience of this hotel to be a complete contrast to the other reviews posted here, I found the Fuengirola Beach Hotel to be extremely poor. On arrival at our accommodation, the Fuengirola Beach Aparthotel, Fuengirola, Costa del Sol. After being given our room card and proceeding up to the fifth floor to the room, it became apparent on entry that the room was already occupied as there where other peoples suitcases there. On arrival back at reception we where issued another room card for the adjacent room, again on the fifth floor. When we once again arrived at this second room with all our luggage, on opening the door there was a strong smell of sewage and again the room was occupied as there where suitcases present. On arrival again, at reception, the receptionist obviously didn't believe that the room was occupied, as he had to return to the fifth floor with us to check that the room was indeed occupied. On our fourth return to reception since we had arrived over an hour before, we where given our third room of the evening. On arrival at this room it was unoccupied, although the smell of sewage was still present.
We visited this apartment hotel last april. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean with more space than the average hotel room.The only down side to the apartment was a single bed right outside the bathroom door which was great for putting suitcases on or as in our case teenage girls overspill from the wardrobe or a handy sulking spot!!!!!!!! The hotel reception is bright and cool, lovely staff who all speak english and are very helpful. There are 2 bars, one only open after 11 oclock to adults only. Great bar staff in both bars, always ready to crack a joke or have a laugh, especially at our attempts to pronounce the name of the local spanish lager (try saying 'shampoo' it seems to work!)The pool area was again spotless, plenty of sun beds to be had,an out side bar, tennis courts ,(where the kids like to play football. Its too hot for the grown ups.)Evening entertainment is rather basic, little ones seemed to enjoy it. Make sure you have plenty to drink at happy hour 6pm --7pm 2 drinks for the price of one.
