Fuengirola Centro Apartment Review, Spain

Fuengirola centro

My friends and I travelled to Spain for a girls weekend of fun in the sun. Spain is only a 2 hour flight from the UK and ideal for a long weekend away. Last year we travelled to Torremolinos, this time we chose Fuengirola. We stayed at the Fuengirola Centro Apartments which we booked through Booking.com. This is my review.

The Lounge at Fuengirola Centro

The Lounge at Fuengirola Centro

The lounge is a decent size with a dining room table that seats 6, TV, and really comfortable sofas and leads out to the balcony. It was a lovely area to spend time in and cool off from the heat. Air conditioning is available throughout the apartment.

The kitchen at Fuengirola Centro

The kitchen was an excellent size leading into a utility room with a washing machine. Equipped with a large fridge freezer, microwave, oven and dishwasher, the owners had thought of everything. Plenty of plates, cups, glasses were available.

The bedrooms at Fuengirola Centro Apartment

Twin bedroom

My sister Jayne and I stayed in the twin bedroom, which is ideal for a couple of kids. The beds were really comfortable and plenty of storage available. There were also numerous plug sockets that take the european two pin plugs.

Double bedroom

Deb and Nat shared a double room which again was a ok size as above with adequate storage. Kate had the double bedroom below which has a small double bed and plenty of room, there is also a ensuite which was a decent size too.

The bathrooms at Fuengirola Centro Apartment

There are two bathrooms, one opposite the twin room and one ensuite. Both a decent size with bidet, baths and showers. The owners also provided shower gel and shampoo which was a nice touch.

The balcony

The spacious balcony

We spent a lot of time on the balcony, the sun comes round in the afternoon and it can get very hot. There is a shade you can pull down which was welcome in the heat.

Admiring the view!

This was the perfect spot for a glass of wine and tapas and for watching the sun go down over the mountains. A perfect sunset!

The swimming pool at Fuengirola Centro

The pool is shared with the other apartments but was never very busy.

The only small criticism we had was that sunbeds were not provided, there were 2 chairs in the cupboard you could take to the pool, but that was not the same as lying on comfy sunbeds in the sun. We chose to just lie on our towels and the grass was very soft but sunbeds would of been perfect.

Synchronized Swimming skills!

We had such fun in the pool and our synchronized swimming skills went down well!

WiFi

WiFi was free, fast and available throughout the apartment.

Finding Fuengirola Centro Apartment

We were a little worried that we wouldn’t be able to find Fuengirola Centro after reading some reviews, however, we needn’t have worried as it was very easy to find. We walked from the train station and it took 20 minutes. When you come up the stairs or escalator and are stood in front of the station, turn right. Continue straight past the museums and Zoo. Turn right at the roundabout, walk past Sweet Moments restaurant continue until the brow of the hill and Fuengirola Centro is directly on the left.

Location

The location is great, 10 minutes walk to the beach and the centre of Fuengirola.

The girls!

The beach is lovely, the weather was perfect during our stay, but the sand did get really hot, even with flip flops on. Stupidly I had left my water shoes in the apartment, so running to the water was very painful!

The beach is lovely, the weather was perfect during our stay, but the sand did get really hot, even with flip flops on. Next time I would take my beach/water shoes as running to the water was painful!

Chilling on the beach

Just down the road from Fuengirola is a little bar/restaurant called Sweet Moments where they served the best Frappelatte, milk shakes and Tapas. We would definitely recommend a visit!

There is a lovely harbour in Fuengirola, if you are facing the sea head left and you will find it easily. Full of restaurant and bars it is a great place to watch the world go by.

Walking towards the harbour

We were sad to leave Fuengirola Centro and could of happily spent a week or two here. It is a fantastic apartment that is ideal for a group of friends or large family. In fact you could sleep an extra 2 short adults or children on the sofa in the living room comfortably, so a total of 8 persons could be accommodated. We couldn’t fault the apartment it really was well equipped and comfortable. As stated above our only criticism would be the lack of sunbeds. However it is a great choice for a holiday in Fuengirola and we would recommend a stay here.

  3. Nice review – I was visiting a friend who lives in the mountains behind Malaga last month and we went to Fuengirola – lovely place, would recommend it also. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Travel Lexx says:

    Looks like a great apartment and certainly beats staying in a hotel with all those ameneties! Love the sunset views as well – still have never been to Spain somehow but looks gorgeous!

  5. Great review of the Fuengirola Centro Apartments along with your video. The location looks perfect with views and a beach close by. Saved Pin for my next trip to Spain. #feetdotravel

  6. What a cute apartment, I especially love the balcony and that strawberry milkshake looked delightful! We would definitely stay in a place like this 🙂

  7. Sounds like a perfect place for a girlie weekend away, and that balcony?!! Awesome!! I would love tapas and wine at sunset there! Shame about the lack of sunbeds by the pool but thank goodness for the grass! Lovely review and I’m glad you had a great time away #feetdotravel

  8. Barry says:

    Nice review guys. Looks like a great place to unwind by the pool. I’ve visited Spain a few times now but surprisingly never been to the Costa del Sol. I know it’s a popular spot for us Brits to get some sun!

    • Thanks Barry. To be honest I thought Fuengirola was going to be full of lager louts and Brits abroad, but it wasn’t like that at all. It was a great place for a weekend away and like us say ideal for us Brits!

  9. An ideal spot for a few mates to hang out and enjoy the beach, a few drinks and some laughs. Sun lounges at the pool would have topped things off, I agree, but it looks like everything else is catered for. Great info!

    I wasn’t familiar with Fuengirola before reading this but it sure looks nice. Your accommodation looks like it was close to everything you could need, especially having the beach that close. Not a bad weekend!

    • To be honest when my friends recommended Fuengirola, I thought it was going to be a bit rough and ready full of Brits abroad. However it was lovely, I would definitely return. Thanks for your comment.

    I’m planning a road trip through the beach resorts of Andalucia at some point. I’ve never actually heard of Fuengirola but it looks like a worthwhile stop. Fuengirola Centro Apartments looks like the perfect place to stay there. The bar down the road Sweet Moments would be perfect to enjoy cocktails whilst enjoying the golden hour.

    • That would be a great road trip so many great places along that coast. Fuengirola is worth checking out, last year we went to Torremolinos which was lovely too, and don’t miss Estepona. We really enjoyed our time here.

  12. Kreete says:

    Looks like a nice place for a few days holiday! I especially love the balcony and the amazing sunset! Shame there were no lounges by the pool, but it’s great you didn’t let that phase you. Great review!

  13. Looks like a fun girls weekend, especially with the synchronized swimming. It looks like a perfect apartment for your needs!
