11 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Spacious, clean and comfortable
"Stayed here 17th-24th Jan. We were booked into a one bedroomed apt but upgraded on arrival to a 2 bed for an extra 72 Euro. The reason for this was because if me and hubby wanted to watch TV we would have disturbed the kids who were sleeping ion the sofa bed in lounge. The 2 bed apt have a fantastic seaview with a huge balcony that was at the front and side. We had a separate kitchen with a full cooker, lots of pans and full size fridge freezer. We also had 4 extra double wardrobes which was a good. The beds were that comfy that i didn't wake up until 8.30 each morning (not like me). Found a lovely place to eat called Cosmopolita. We ate there most days and most days the head waiter (Thomas) who resembled Tom Conti offered us a drink on the house, which was nice of him. The only problem i incurred at the Ronda 1V was that the pool was closed during our entire stay and the bar was also closed due to staff holidays!! By the way the weather was excellent, t-shirt and shorts during the day and one evening we needed jackets"

"Spent 4 days at Ronda 4 from 13 -17 December 2007.The one bed apartments are excellent.Great bathroom,bedroom,living area and small kitchen..Kitchen haseverything ie kettle,teapot etc Except a microwave.
The Tv has all the UK channels(and RTE 1 AND 2).Really good accommodation and the staff are all very helpful and friendly.
The apartments are just across the road to the Beach at Los Boliches,and about a 5 minute walk to the Los Boliches Renfe station:it costs about 2 euros to get to the airport by train.
I've booked for 4 nights between christmas and the new year.Book..You won't be disappointed!!."

"Just back from a week stay in the Ronda 4 and i couldn't fault it in any way, the staff were friendly and helpful, nothing was a problem and went out of their way to help you. The apartments are just across the road from the beach which was cleaned everyday, it was 4 euros a day for a lounger but they were very comfortable.
A few doors down was a restaurant/pub called Cheers and if you stay in the Ronda 4 Cheers is well worth a visit the food was delicious and the staff were the friendliest people (J, Sharon and Chantelle) always a smile on their faces and a bit of craic to go with it. You have to try their ribeye steak and mushroom sauce it is to die for and what a portion not to mention their fish chips and mushy peas which is served on a platter and i have yet to see anyone finish it.
The local buses and trains run regular and it was only Â£1.25 to go to Toromiollinos which is 12 miles away the trains were only around Â£2.50 but taxis can be pricey.
All in all a brilliant place to have a holiday so much so that i have booked already to take our 2 kids there again in August 08"

Brilliant for kids
"Have just returned from a week in spain staying in the Ronda 4 apartments, there were 7 of us in 2 apartments, my daughters apartment was on the bottom floor overlooking the front entrance and was very dark, got little or no sun all day, i on the other hand was on the 4th floor overlooking the pool and had sun from 11a.m in the morning until the sun went down, would advise this side of apartments if possible, as i had friends on the front looking out to sea and they only got the sun for a few hours in the morning. The apartments were very clean, our room had just been refurbished so we had free tv but my daughter had to pay for her remote control 20euros, which you get back when you leave, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from on the front but very little night life, any live music stops at midnight, you need to walk towards fuengirola if you want more, we went to O,Connors bar and had great crack, it is just opposite Hotel Angelina. The only complaint i would have about the apartments is they only change your towels once a week, and with children you really need more.Beds are not changed at all but all in all i would go back for a Quiet holiday."

"Ronda 4 apartments are very nice, location is brill with many delicious restaurants on the door step, the beach is right outside the hotel where sunloungers and parasols are 4 euros per person per day..and well worth it!! Staff were friendly, apartments very clean, was pleased with the size of the rooms the kitchen was well equiped however we did take a travel kettle as we'd read that you only got an old whistle one, which we did. TV was pretty big but if you want eda remote you had to pay a deposit. Swimming pool was ok, but didn't open until 11 and sun was only on it for about 5/6 hours, only seen the snack bar open once for a few hours and the bar inside only opened from 18:20. Not many places that do entertainment but managed to find a little english bar that had live singers every night this was left outside the apartments called bar baccus. Would definitely go again!"

Could not fault it.
"My daughter (16) and I have just got back from 10 blissful days in Fuengirola, staying at Ronda 4 apts. Would not hesitate to recommend these apts to any of my friends and would certainly return there myself. Rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. Our balcony overlooked the pool and had sun most of the day till late evening. We found staff to be friendly, welcoming and very helpful. We had a problem with the electrics (turned out to be a problem with the fridge) and as soon as we reported it they had someone there to sort it - ended up having fridge replaced, all within a couple of hours. Pool area was cleaned every morning so didnt open until about 10am, but be warned, limited number of sunbeds and towels appear on them within minutes of area opening!! Not that worried us as we prefer the beach anyway and it is only across the road - the sunbeds there were padded so more comfortable too!! We ate out every day and enjoyed almost everything we tried - recommend Bandits, Fools and Horses & Sticky Fingers. Our favourite tho, was Brisas, a few hundred yards to the right. It was Spanish owned, but Sue, the waitress/front of house-person was very charming and welcoming. We only found it by chance - I love paella, my daughter doesnt and most places only served it for 2 people but Brisas does it individually. Food, presentation and service we received were all excellent and very reasonable prices too. Another must to try are the freshly caught , skewered, flame grilled Sardines available at all the beachside cafe/bars - delicious. All in all a wonderful time in a great location."

"I have stayed on and off at this hotel / apartments for the last 7 years, the staff and location are brilliant, it is situated on los boliches sea front, which is a golden sand beach for miles and miles. Flavs, Talk of the Town and Cheers are only a footstep away and they are brill! I used to live in Fuengirola and work for Flavs so trust me it is good! 5 minutes away in a cheap taxi (about 5euros max) is Fuengirola town where you have the world famous Linekars, London Pub, Heavans Gate, London Underground, The Living Room and Many more. There is also the Harbour which has a lot of restaurants where you can sit and watch the sun set whilst eating your meal, also there is fish alley which has the widest selection of restaurants an bars. There is a family atmosphere but is also a good singles holiday! There is something here to suit everyone. Would recommend to anyone."

Had a great time at the Ronda
"Stayed at the Ronda 4 with 2 friends and had a great time! The room was very clean and spacious and looked as if it may have been newly refurbished. Easily accomodated all 3 of us. Had a balconey with a great view of the beach and plenty space to all sit out there and have a drink. TV in the room featured lots of channels such as BBC, Sky 1 etc and was quite handy for a break from the sun. The hotel staff were very helpful. However our rubbish was not cleared from our room and we were left with a room filled with empty bottles and leftovers spilling out of the bin. This would be my only criticism of the hotel.
Other than that we were quite some distance from the main nitelife (clubs or bars open past 12 or 1). Yet walking out straight on to the beach and a great selection of restaurants round about made this not too much of a problem.
The hotel pool was very nice and would be great for children. There wasnt many sunbeds however we decided to go to the beach as it was so close by! Hotel is in a great location for the train station that can take you to torremolinos, benalmadena or malaga (and the airport) if u want to visit another resort.
Overall a great hotel! Would stay in again!"

"I have just come back from a weeks stay at the Ronda 4 apartments in Feungirola. The apartments were big and very well equipped, and very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful only downside for some people may be that the bar doesnt open untill 5.30.
Fuengirola itself is a lovely resort, quite quiet as it was the beginning of the season but a 30 min walk will take you to the centre where there are more bars and night clubs. Easy access to Benelmadena and Torremolinos for a busier night out. The beach is also lovely and only across the road.
Would definately recommend the apartments and resort so much so that I am going back in August!."

"We stayed at Ronda 4 last October and we have just booked again for this year. The apartment was clean and spacious and we loved the location. We rented a safe near reception for our valuables. The pool seemed very nice and clean even though we didn't use it. The only one thing which was a little strange - the bar did not open at all during our stay, but this wasn't a problem as there are so many places to eat and drink near by. Can't wait to go back !"
