I understood from our booking agent who manage the apartment that this flat had recently come on to the holiday rental market. The situation of the flat is fine and near the pool, it was clean when we arrived, it is spacious enough for a family with one child (as we were).
I am afraid that there were some big problems with some fairly basic amenities.
The fridge - doesn't work at all and our large shop for the week went progressively bad before our eyes.
The electricity - trips is you have the kettle and the hob or oven on at the same time. Fortunately we didn't cook all that often. When we did I took regular trips to the fuse box and back again to the stove. All of which leaves you tearing your hair out when trying to cook your evening meal and bath a toddler at the same time.
In general the place is tired and in need of a updating. I also ought to mention that it enjoys somewhat of a musty aroma akin to some hospital wards. In particular the spare room smells overtly of ammonia, i suspect that this has something to do with the the boiler that is in the wardrobe but its not pleasant.
We reported the problems (electric and fridge) with the agents, Greenside Properties. On each occasion we received a disinterested acknowledgement but nothing more despite assurances that someone might arrive to address the problem.
Quite truthfully I only write this review (I have never written one before) because on return to the UK I was informed by email that because of the way we left the apartment we would not be welcome back. Please rest assured my wife and I and our two year old are not Keith Moon reincarnate nor are we angelic suffice to say to receive such a communication in the face of such a lack of assistance or concern from Greenside I felt was terribly insulting.
In summary if you do not intend to cook or buy food that requires refrigeration this is the place for you. The problem is with the abundance of choice available at Puebla Aida or Mijas Golf I would expect you can achieve these lofty aims elsewhere and for a similar outlay. Avoid.
