Our family of four (two boys of 14 and 15) had a great week in Tuomas apartment. Marina met us when we arrived and showed us around the place and gave us some tips for the area.
The apartment was as pictured in the listing and had all amenties we could desire, -sun beds for the terrace, beach parasols, cooler bags, inflatable sunbeds, sand toys, lots of towels, etc. The kitchen was well equipped, with lots of cutlery, plates, cups and glasses, but is limited in space and gets easily cramped when two teenagers decide to make something to eat, -at the same time..
The sofa in the living area is very comfortable and the Playstation was gold for the boys and saved us a lot of nagging :-).
All other technical stuff like air condition, kitchen equipment, wifi, etc, was working perfectly.
As described in other comments the master bedroom (very good bed!) on the second floor is partly open as there is only an iron "gate" for door. Did not matter at all for us as the other two bedrooms have normal doors, and the boys shared one on the first floor. The last bedroom, on second floor, we used as wardrobe and drying room. All bedrooms have plenty of storage rooms for clothes and luggage.
The major road that passes approximately 50m behind the building is causing some traffic noise, but with the front doors closed it is no problem. The boys had the bedroom facing the road, and even with the window open they had no problem sleeping.
The terrace is on the opposite side, and allthough you can hear some background traffic noise here as well, it was no issue for us. It has sun from around eight in the morning till seven in the evening, so you do not need to go anywhere if you are just in for the sun bathing. The terrace is also very private, as none of the neighbour apartments have any direct insight.
Behind the building is the parking lot for the apartments, separated from the road by a hegde/trees and a high fence. So no risk for small children to tumble out into the traffic.
The shared pool in the garden is nice and clean, and with an air temp. of 25-28 degrees these days in Octobre, the water was still warm. Even the sea temperature was well above 20, but there was almost no one to see swimming.
Four minutes walk to the beach and maybe eight to an ok Lidl supermarket.
A car is strongly reccomended or neccessary if you want to go to Fuengirola or Benalmadena for any family activities.
We had a nice autumn break and will recommend Tuomas place for family vacation.
