Entertainment OK, but there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby (a good curry-house right next door).
Nice walks along the sea front to Banelmadena (bus or train back) for a day out, public transport bus to La Ligna from Fuengirola bus station for a day in Gibraltar (2-hour ride each way) and plenty of other day trips advertised along the sea front (including Morocco, Tangier, Grenada, etc.).
Have been three times now and going again, soon.
Handy shops nearby for food, but we always ate out.

The hotel reception area was great and staff very polite but our first disappointment was we had to wait about 45 mins to check in and get allocated a room because there where none ready for any of the guests and after travelling on a very early flight we was very tired, this was not acceptable. We then went to our room which was on the 7th floor room 710, my sister Sandra walked in with her suitcase and straight away slipped on the very wet floor and fell against the wall hurting her hand and wrist, trying to stop herself from falling..then to find out that there was no pool, after being told there was one when we booked..we were lucky that we were opposite the beach..
Don't get me wrong the hotel was great, also the staff, Mr Vargos who was working in the hotel bar was especially polite and helpful always smiling,
I have stated the hotel cleanliness as a 4 this is because the cleaner that did our room or was supposed to clean our room hardly ever did it, the balcony was not touched in 10 days unless we did it ourselves, the sheets were not change at all in the 10 days, the mop went where it touched just by the beds that was it. We watched other cleaners on different floors of the hotel and noticed they just about cleaned every part of the apartment daily even the balcony railings. We were lucky if it was even looked at. We even noticed the build up of rubbish etc on the balcony of 709 next to us. Did not see cleaner on there balcony once. except when we told reception that there was a bottle sitting full up with trash with what I presumed to be ciggy buts and dirty water, on the edge of the railings which could have been knocked over side and hurt someone. The maid went in moved it from there and put it on the little patio table, it then got moved back by the guests and stayed there and was still there when we left yesterday 22/7/06
Several days we were left without toilet rolls, we ended up buying them ourselves at the supermarket.
On the good side now the room was comfortable, the bathroom great, kitchen was on small side need to get a little work space fitted next to cooker rings, good air conditioning.. room for improvement, but on the whole the holiday was great and would stay there again

6 months before departure I rang to cancel a night because of a change in flight time, but La Jabega would not refund so I paid for 7 & only stayed for 6 nights.
Nevermind I thought, they were advertised with a sea view & I requested a high floor so as not to be disturbed by the surrounding bars. Holidayrooms telephoned me on booking to confirm my requests as it was a special occasion. On arrival we were given a room on the second floor at the back with no sea view & our balcony was 10 foot from a sports bar, hense we didn't sleep for the week. I spent most of the time in tears as La jabega refused to move us.
There was also alot of people rowing in the early hours in adjacent apartments. I wouldn't stay again because I paid for a room that I didn't get plus I overpaid. This was not holidayrooms as I have travelled with them many times with no problems.
Now for the nice stuff. The apartments were just across the road from Los Boliches beach & 5 min walk to the centre of Fuengirola. The room itself was very clean with towels as needed, fridge,a/c,oven & hob,balcony & bathroom with bath & shower & a safe for about
