There is also an indoor pool and jacuzzi, great for use during the winter months. The complex is located 5 mins from the beach, and just 2 mins from shops, bars and restaurants. Walking distance to all attractions including the Dolphin Selwo Show(10 mins), excellent free park with animals, swings and slides(10 mins) Tivoli World Amusement Park (15 mins), cable car into mountains(15 mins). Local town of Arroyo is a 20 minute walk which has a great selection of shops and restaurants and a fantastic fast train service which connects directly with the airport and costs approx two euros to airport.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Martyn/Debra.

Just a little note to thank you for the use of your apartment in

Benalmadena. We were all extremely pleased with the accommodation. It was just a perfect size for our party.

We always managed to get a sun bed no matter what time of day we went down to the pool!

The weather was absolutely fantastic as well, although I did manage to get sunburnt on my first day whilst walking along the beach!

We would certainly make use of your apartment in future and would recommend it to anyone. Once again thanks for the use of it.

Maureen.



Hi Debra,

Just to let you know we had a really lovely holiday and the apartment and complex was fantastic - I would definitely recommend it to others.

Benalmadena is such a nice resort - I was pleasantly surprised at how clean it was and the fact that it was all relatively low rise.

Thanks,

Louise.

Lovely apartment in a lovely friendly complex

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from this apartment and had a great time. The apartment is very clean and has everything you need. The air conditioning was a god send. The beds are comfy and the terrace is the best thing about the apartment. It offers sun and shade to suit your needs. The apartment is on a friendly complex where the staff are great. The lady running the kids club was brilliant and included ours as soon as we arrived. Benalmedena is a great resort and I would highly recommend a visit.

Having read the other reviews on this apartment i would like to point out the following, the noise from the gate is not a problem at all. If you are inside the apartment you can't hear it at all and if you are on the terrace then you hear it but at no point was it an issue. The key cards can be a bit tricky but another guest told us to try it a couple of times and it usually works, we were fine and never got stuck anywhere unable to get in or out. The oven is fine, it's not massive but it cooks food!

The bathroom had a bath which is great for smaller children after a hot day. There is a box of swimming aids, buckets and spades and bats and balls, DVDs and books for the evening time so everyone is catered for.

Communication from the owners is good, prompt replies to any queries. We hired a car but you don't really need one if you are happy to stay in Benalmedena but we wanted to explore a bit further afield.

I'd definitely recommend this apartment. Thanks for a great holiday

great apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this apartment over two years ago and we have just recently had friends -go who loved it too - which has made us book again for this summer. It is a fab place to stay close enough to everything yet still calm and relaxing enough to switch off. Benalmadena has so much to do. Our kids loved the entertainement at the complex and we really enjoyed getting them to bed in the evenings and sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine and a takeaway. Looking forward to going back.

Fab Apartment Benalmadena

  • 4 of 5

Description of the apartment was spot on Debra + Martyn gave us spot on instructions on how to get to there apartment as we were planning on getting the train as we got off the plane. Train station is right across the road from the airport. 3 euro's each. From day 1 everyone was so helpful even at the ticket machine @ the train station. We then found the apartment no problem 20 minute walk from the train station. On arrival we had to ring margaret who then took us in to the apartment and showed us around and gave us 2 card keys for the acess in/out of clubhouse and access to the roof terrace. These keys caused a few problems (Dont blame anyone) We went to the roof terrace but could not get any were to sit so decided to go back the pool but the card would not work in the gate so we asked the life guard could he let us out with his key but he couldnt leave the pool so we stood at the gate waiting for 20 minutes for someone to come to let us out who had a key. We never bothered trying the roof terrace again. We had to get the key card re-charged 5 times while there if they didnt work it does cause a problem. Not owners fault as the whole complex is the same. The staff at the clubhouse are brilliant and the food is fab. The waiter couldnt do enought to help so because of the service we ate dinner there most day's. The pool was fab as well really warm. We hit lucky for the weather as well. The marina is a MUST. There is plenty to do you would never get lost for places to see. My only 1 thing i would say is the traffic outside the apartment is really loud but we only noticed when we went back in the evening to get ready to go out if the patio doors open you cannot hear the tele but this is only small thing as we dont really go on holiday to watch TV usually but as weather was so hot we had to get out of the heat for a few hours. Its 1 euro for 3 hours of air conditioning so because of heat we used about 15 euros for the whole week. Overall we would staff here again for sure.

Owner's Response: It is always great to hear that people enjoyed the apartment, as it is such a great place to stay and we love being there ourselves. I think it is important that I respond to the comment about the road. The road is a small turning into and out of the complex. It is not a main road and there is rarely a lot of traffic, so I am surprised about the comment of noise from the road. Most people tend to say that they love sitting and relaxing on the terrace - which wouldn't be the case if it was a noisy road. Should anyone have any concerns about this I would suggest they call us to discuss and we can explain in further detail.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

A five minute walk will take you to the beachfront where you will find many beach shops and places to eat. Sunbeds and umbrellas can be hired on the beach. There is a lovely walkway which you can follow along to the marina in around 20 minutes and is lined with some traditional fish restuarants. There are some lovely beach bars here too.

Travel:

Malaga Airport is a twenty minute transfer by taxi and costs around 25 euros one way. There is an excellent state-of-the-art-train that runs along the coast from Malaga airport it is easy to use and very popular with holidaymakers and costs 1.80 euro from airport to Arroya de la Miel / Benalmadena, which is 5 minute taxi journey from the aparment and costs 6 Euros.

Distances:

The beach is approx a five minutes walk and the delights of Tivoli Amusement park, Paloma Park, and Dolphin Selwo Show are approximately ten minutes walk. Visiting Benalmadena marina is a must - a relaxing stroll along the beachfront promenade will take approx twenty minutes. The Spanish town of Arroya De La Miel is a similar distance and a great place for pavement cafes, tapas bars and shopping. Close by - approx three minutes away is Palm Tree Avenue which has a great selection of restaurants.

Further Details:

There are plenty of banks (nearest 3 minutes from complex), supermarkets (nearest around 2 minutes from complex) bars and restuarants in Benalmadena. The best shopping tends to be in Arroya De Miel, alternatively a bus ride to Torromolinos will delight with its vast selection of shoe shops. The coast itself is a playground full of fun things to do, plenty of beaches, water parks and activities for the kids, boundless amounts of culture and history. There are stylish marinas, great restaurants, fantastic shopping and excellent nightlife. The choice between action and relaxation is yours. This coast really does have something to suit every one?

Travelling along the coast is easy with an excellent network of buses and a state-of- the-art-train from Malaga airport along the coast as far as Fuengirola. If you prefer car hire then this is competitive and low cost, alternatively there are plenty of excursions with countless places to visit.

Inland are the pretty white Andalucian villages including the hill top town of Mijas; further afield but easily accessible are the beautiful cities of Seville and Granada. If it is glamour you're after, Puerto Banus and Marbella will not disappoint and the marina at Benalmandena is a must for its sophistication With its many restaurants, bars and nightclubs with golf courses in abundance, countless entertainment parks and fun things for the kids to do you really can find something to please everyone. With its all year round climate it means that the resort doesn't close down in winters therefore making it a perfect winter destination too. This excellent resort does have it all (even an ice skating rink!), that a two week break really doesn't do it justice, which is probably why so many people return or that it is very popular with the long stay winter guests.
