The staff was the most friendly and helpful of anywhere we've stayed; the on-site restaurant served decent food. Mid-week maid service. There are two pools; the larger one is heated, so tended to draw the families, and there were daily staff-led pool activities, as well as games, on the restaurant patio. The smaller, unheated pool drew more adults for sunbathing, and from the upper pool, there's a view of the ocean.
Although the listing says "beach nearby," the closest one isn't very appealing, and we ended up driving to visit others. Driving directions from the airport were correct, but it's very easy to miss the turn off the highway.

The beach was across the main road, but not too far away, and Fuengirola's town centre was within walking distance.
The zoo is in Fuengirola town centre, and we took our nephews for the day, as there wasn't much else to do in Janaury, and they loved it! In fact, it turned out to be a really enjoyable day.
Best Things About the Resort:The apartment was wonderful--totally not what I was expecting. We had a two-bedroom unit which had separate levels, with the balcony, kitchen, lounge, and dining room on the ground floor and the two bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor.
The unit was well-equipped, with a washing machine, microwave, full kitchen, heaters, iron and board, etc.--all the things you have at home but take for granted when you travel.
When we checked into the apartment, we were surprised to find a welcome pack consisting of tea, coffee, sugar, milk, water, bread, eggs, butter, jam, marmalade, biscuits, and red wine.
The unit was cleaned twice in the week that we stayed there, and I mean cleaned--not just the sheet-changing and new towels. Our cleaner did our washing up, arranged clothes left on the bathroom floor into a neatly folded pile, and mopped the floors from top to bottom. She was there for a good 45 minutes, cleaning up.
The staff on reception was very friendly, and the restaurants on-site were the best I found in Spain. Zacary's is my particular favourite, with a to-die-for beef stroganoff. They also offer a pizza delivery service to your apartment, which comes in handy when you can't be bothered to go out or cook.
The pools on-site were well kept clean and maintained. The main pool is heated, which was what we needed while travelling in Janaury. The whole site is huge, and because of it being on a hill, they operate a train service to take you around the resort for free. I believe that this goes around and around all day and night, as I saw it at 1am once.
I was really pleased with this resort, and so was my family. The only gripe I had with this resort was that we were charged 20 euros for electricity, which I felt was very high. Resort Experience:It's a great place to visit if you are travelling with family or a group of friends. It's also good if you just want to chill out on holiday. I really enjoyed myself at this resort and would go again, although would go in hotter months this time!

The gardens were lovely in our location.
All of the staff were friendly AND THE SECURITY GATES WERE IDEAL WITH SMALL CHILDREN around the pool.Resort Experience:Clean, friendly resort. Plenty to do around and about if you go off site. Nice apartments. Four resturants but they could do with a wider variety of food choices. The menus were much the same. Small playground for kids. Horse riding. A train to get from AtoB.
