The lovely gardens and huge free-form swimming pool help make the highly rated San Diego Suites / California Beach a big hit with timeshare owners and returning visitors. Located just outside the popular fishing village-cum-holiday resort town of Fuengirola, it features uniquely designed apartments and high end facilities.
Noted as an ‘amazing resort’ on review sites like TripAdvisor, classy San Diego Suites is beautifully laid out, with its rich gardens and central pool area opening up to a fine vista of the Mediterranean Sea below. This resort is kept exceptionally clean and is very safe for families.
The emphasis is on space here, with a massive central pool area for sunbathing, along with an island and bridges in the main pool, plus kiddie’s pool nearby. The evergreen gardens butt right up to the pool terrace and come complete with seats and parasols.
Rooms are large and well appointed with all mod cons and hint of Moorish flare in the arches and pillars. Air conditioning and fitted kitchens are standard, along with en suite bedrooms, while the larger, upper apartments have huge patios that boast their very own Jacuzzi.
Extras include a babysitting service, sauna and fitness suite with aerobics studio, plus there’s also a convenience store, a snazzy bar/cocktail lounge and the very popular Safari restaurant with its tasty regional and international menus.
You are well placed for getting to Fuengirola, which is just a few kilometres to the north. Buses and taxis run through here all day long, while Fuengirola is linked to Malaga via an efficient rail connection. Airport transfers to San Diego Suites take around 30 minutes from Malaga Airport.
Visitors can easily get to the beach in front of the resort, and there is golden sand for miles in either direction. Head into Fuengirola proper to enjoy its bustling town setting, complete with harbour and boat trips. There is also great scope for bike riding, fishing and especially for playing golf.
Those with families can take their kids to Zoo Bioparc, which is right in Fuengirola, or to the fun Mijas Aquapark with its pools and slides. Mijas Pueblo is worth checking out for its traditional ‘cubist’ white village look. Fuengirola also has a buzzing nightlife and some of the best and reasonably priced seafood eating of the Costa del Sol.
