“Right in the mountains and 10 minutes from the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

Rosamarina is a wonderful and cozy place to stay if you are in the south of Spain. It was perfect for our family of 10 people from 15 to 85 years. But you need a car to stay here. If not it would be an extremely quiet stay. Easy access by car to Granada and Alhambra from here. And at sea level - 5 km downhill - lies Nerja with several beautiful beaches.
The beautiful white village of Frigiliana is peaceful and quiet and totally charming and Apt. Rosamarina offers very good value for money. Great apartments with wonderful views of the mountains and of the sea at Nerja in the distance. Small pool, but clean and very nice and with the same wonderful view. Everything is well kept and very clean.
One tip: The extra bed in the apartments is not comfortable for grown-ups.
Our family enjoyed the week immensely and I will be back!

Room Tip: You must be fit to walk stairs to stay here. Ask for rooms at the top if you are not happy with a lo...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2011

We stayed for 4 nights in May while attending a wedding in the vicinity and thought the superior apartment was very well-equipped and comfortable. We had a large open plan lounge/dining room/kitchen, a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower and a balcony which you could access from both the lounge and the bedroom. The west facing balcony had stunning views of the mountains and the sea. Both the apartment and the communal areas were spotlessly clean. There was an attractive swimming pool with comfortable loungers and the whole building was adorned with numerous pots filled with colourful flowering plants. In addition to the key to our room, we were also given a key to the main entrance so we could come and go at any time of the day or night without disturbing anyone. On our leaving day, the owners left a note telling us that we did not have to vacate at 11am as stipulated in the booking information but could keep the room as long as we needed, which was very helpful as our flight was not until the evening. The only negative things were these: there were a lot of steps and we were right at the bottom of the block which meant we had to climb up and down the stairs several times a day (the apartments were set into the hillside with the entrance at the top). We also had to climb up several flights to use the pool (there was a gate at the bottom of the building with access to the pool but this seemed to be permanently locked); there were no sunshades put out round the pool - there were bases for them but not the parasols (we went to ask at reception, but there was a note saying 'Back in 15 minutes', which seemed to be there most times when we went past. I'm sure in high season when the place is full, there would be more of a presence of the owners. Frigiliana is a beautiful white-washed Andalusian village with the old town perched up the side of a mountain, full of little shops, bars and restaurants set into its narrow, winding, cobbled streets. There is also the town of Nerja nearby, just a 10 minute drive away, with lovely beaches and an attractive old town with a good choice of places to eat. We would highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the higher rooms near the entrance.

Pure High Walking Holidays Spain booked me a one bedroom apartment for four nights and it was very satisfactory. Everyone I needed: comfortable bed, pleasant living room, attractively furnished and suitably equipped. The balcony faced west, to catch the evening sun, and had views of the Mediterranean in one direction and the village of Frigiliana and the hills beyond in the other. An easy stroll into Frigiliana.

This block of 17 one, two and three-bedroomed apartments, built five years ago, is located in a quiet corner of the new part of Frigiliana. Each apartment has its own west-facing balcony with wonderful views across the valley. Construction is such that none of the balconies is overlooked.
Alvaro and his family provide a friendly and welcoming environment in which nothing is too much trouble.
We have visited four times now, most recently three weeks ago, and including a six month stay over the winter of 2004/5. It is a popular place for local expats to accommodate their visiting friends.
