Hence limited no of reviews

Please see footnote at the end of this description regarding local payments.

Attractive, fair-sized two bedroom south facing 5th floor apartment, in small private walled and gated secure development. Two south facing linked terraces offer an open outdoor suburban aspect with some sea views and sun all day.

Ideally located to suit all tastes and interests within 10 minutes walk of Arroyo de la Miel town centre which links directly to Fuengirola, Torremolinos, Malaga and the Airport via the excellent coastal train service. Two adjacent bus routes provide links to other popular local destinations and there is a taxi rank within 100 metres.

Local places of interest within a short walking distance include the sea front and coastal promenade, Paloma Park, Selwo Dolphinarium and Zoo, Tivoli World theme park and cable car to the summit of the local mountain, Arroyo de la Miel town with its local Spanish shops, bars and restaurants,

A longer walk or short taxi/bus ride takes you to Benalmadena Marina also served with many shopping, eating and drinking outlets and various boat trips including scheduled services to Fuengirola and Malaga.

Continuing to walk along the coastal promenade to the east brings in the once small fishing village of Carrihuella and further on to Torremolinos. Going to the west takes you past Torremuelle, Los Boliches and eventually on to Fuengirola.

Other places worth visiting within a short drive/taxi/bus/train ride include the largely unspoilt old towns of Benalmadena and Mijas and the water park and crocodile park tourist attractions in Torremolinos. Not to mention the ancient city of Malaga itself, with it's excellent Cathedral, principal shopping street Calle Larios leading to Plaza de Constitution off which runs the fascinating Calle Granada winding past many interesting eating and drinking places, the Picasso Museum, El Pimpi bar and restaurant and finally the roman Amphitheatre ruins with the magnificent Alcazaba fortress towering overhead.

Further afield, the outlying towns and cities of Marbella, Puerto Banus, Rhonda, Antequera, and Granada with its magnificent Alhambra Grand Palace offer a day out to suit most tastes. If you want to go further west, Gibraltar provides another popular venue, well served by many low cost tour operators.


There is a cash payment of €38, (€45 from 2019), or the equivalent in pounds required in addition to the rental fee, to cover cleaning and laundry after your visit, payable to my local manageress on arrival.

In addition, you also need to leave with my local manageress €100 or equivalent in pounds security deposit, to cover any damage or losses. This will be returned to you in full if there is none.

The aircons are operated by a coin meter.

Excellent apartment already calling me back

  • 5 of 5

My wife and myself were impressed by this apartment particularly as the lift stopped outside the front door. She has some walking difficulties. It had everything needed, a brilliant shower room, comfortable beds, a kitchen lacking nothing. A good location 4 minutes from Bonanza Square and the bars and restaurants. Bus service regularly running to Mijas - Benalmadena Marina - Torremolinos. A 10 minute walk to the prom gets busses to Marbella- Fuengirola - or Malaga and more bars and restaurants. Trying to work out when our pension will allow us to return

Fabulous spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 10 July for 23 nights at a very reasonable price for the Summer. We loved the apartment. It was a great size and very comfortable. Offering everything you needed for your stay. It was in a great position, close to Bonanza and Ibensa Square as well as a short walk up to Arroyo and the train station. The balcony was nice, although a bit of a squeeze for more than 2 to sit at the table comfortably, as the balcony was long and narrow, but wasn't really an issue as there was another table and two chairs to sit at by the bedroom doors. It was nice to have shade in the morning, with some sun coming onto the balcony in the afternoon. It actually kept the apartment fairly cool when having the kitchen and bathroom windows open too, so didn't always need the aircon on which was operated by a meter. There was a great supply of both bath and beach towels, which saved us bringing our own as we only had hand luggage. My boys aged 16 and 10 loved the TV and the fact there was Kodi I believe, so they could watch films and their beloved YouTube lol. (I understand you can use Sky if you bring your own viewing card) The pool area was very nice and private and never too busy. Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to stay close to Bonanza and Ibensa Square. We will definitely be booking again when we next visit Benalmadena. Thank you to Carol for meeting us with the keys.

The apartment was well presented, clean with everything we needed for our weeks stay in Benelmadena.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in an ideal area, close to rail station and bus stop which suited us as we did not hire car and used local transport to visit other places. If we return again to this area we will definitely try to book this apartment. We had our flight delayed by over three hours and felt sorry for Carol who had to meet us after midnight with the keys. So many thanks Carol for that. There are lots of nice places to eat within five ten minutes walk. Only thing I would say is it would have been nice if there had been milk in the fridge as at one in the morning I would have loved a cuppa without having to go out to a pub but overall great apartment and holiday.

Stayed for a long weekend and really enjoyed our stay, its a lovely clean spacious 2 bedroomed apartment with a fully equipped kitchen, every pot and pan you could wish for and all the extra bits you would have in your own kitchen.

The lounge is very comfy, 2 nice settees, coffe tables and dining table and chairs, lots of lamps and low lighting also very bright and airey, the sun is on the balcony most of the day, television with UK programmes and also music and dvd's.

The area around the apartment (Bonanza Square, Ibenza Square are the main eating/drinking areas) is full of bars/cafes/restaurants which are very competitive, lots to see and do, walk/taxi down to the promenade/beach and theres even more to do, jump on a bus and go to the other resorts, walk/taxi up to Arroyo Del La Miel and jump on a train, I am sure you will enjoy your holiday here. I certainly did and cant wait to book again.
