Maddy wrote to me: “Hi Mike, I have just read someone else’s question and your answer, it seems quite straight forward from Malaga airport to Los Boliches train station, I just wanted to know if we can walk to the Aparthotel Ronda 4 (two young fit people with suitcases) and how long it would take or whether it might be better by taxi? Many thanks, Madeleine”

“Oh, just one more question, how long do you think it might take to walk it?”

I wrote back to Maddy:

“Hi Maddy,  it’s good to know you are fit and willing to walk!

As you’ll see in the photo above there’s an easy ramp to pull suitcases down from the platform to street level. You can also take the lift if that’s easier.

One route from Los Boliches train station which is the last stop on the C1 line before Fuengirola train station is to walk down towards the Fuengirola Paseo Maritimo and then turn left. From there it is a very pleasant short walk to Aparthotel Ronda 4. The weather is great at the moment, warm during the day and cool at night. It’ll be a nice stroll with the sea on your right, tempting smells of frying seafood, sea breezes and the promise of a cold beer or two at the end. After about 12 minutes pulling a suitcase you’ll be there. I calculate longer if you stop for a glass of sangria on the way.

You could also actually walk back along that road below the Los Boliches train station until it merges with Avda de Las Gaviotas  Then walk towards the sea and the Aparthotel Ronda 4. That wouldn’t take more than 10 minutes.

I think between the two routes, I would choose to walk along the Paseo Marítimo along the beach, just to get an early taste of your beach holiday!

Have a great stay Maddy and thanks very much for your contact. Mike”

  1. Hi Paul

    Thanks very much for writing in. I have just phoned Aparthotel Ronda 4 to check the price for off road parking and the receptionist told me that it is €5 a day with €20 deposit. Availability is limited so maybe it would be a good idea to write in advance.

    I checked the email address and it is

    Please let me know if I can help you with any other questions Paul. I hope you have a great stay.

    Best wishes from Marbella


  2. hi, does anyone know the ronda 4 aparthotel email address?
    i have a query to email them regarding car parking.
    i stayed there august 2009 and it was great to have off street parking at the hotel, i am due to go back in a few weeks and have been told that they are now charging 15euros per day for parking!! thats very expensive and i would consider staying in another hotel if this were the case.
