Owner's Response: Thank you for your complimentary remarks. The former balcony area has been very successfully enclosed into this lovely studio, to enlarge the living area and for this reason we do not mention a balcony, either in the apartment description, or in the list of facilities available in the apartment. However, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our ideally located apartment with its lovely pool and kiosk, attractive gardens and onsite parking; close to all amenities, and only a short train ride from Malaga International Airport. Perfect for either a long or a short stay and very affordable too !

Great apartment would recommend

  • 4 of 5

Just got back from a fantastic stay in the apartment. It is what is says it is, not huge or 5 star but has all the comforts of home and in such a fantastic spot. The area is wonderful, so much to do, we never got round to doing half of it!! The train is a must from the airport, easy to get on and only cost €2.05 per person each way. Also only a 10 minute walk to the apartment. There is a hill to the beach however going down is fine, coming back up was fine for us but could be a challenge if walking isn't your 'thing'. Didn't have any issues whilst there, many supermarkets within a 5 minute radius and everywhere we looked there was somewhere to eat. If we had any feedback it would have been to know the opening times of the pool before going. In may and October it is only open 1130am-430pm due to the hire of a lifeguard. Although this has no bearing on the owner or the apartment, we, along with many got caught out and disappointed on our first day. Also with having to pay for sun beds each day, it would be great if there were the reclining chairs in the apartment to use by the pool. The view from the apartment is lovely, mountain and sea, my husband especially enjoyed watching the football. Looking forward to returning to explore the area further.

Nice little home from home.

  • 3 of 5

Overall this studio does what it says on the tin. Fab view. Lovely pool area with snacks which are very reasonably priced. Sunbeds at pool to hire for 3 euros per day. Close to bars restaurant, the beach is around a 15 min walk and is steep coming back up in 34 degree heat.

My only negative with this studio is no air conditioning, the cooling which is in the description is a ceiling fan only. This does not cut it in heat over 30 degrees especially at night time. I had to purchase 2 fans, which made it better. With this though Jeff, the property manager had popped by and then the next day phoned to say the owners do not like fans as it puts their electricity up . There was no way you cold survive without these . We left them for a neighbour. Maybe the owners should offer the mob air con unit and the customer pay for this and additional electric.

Otherwise a great stay. Thanks

Location

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The fine sandy Benalmadena beach is about 12 minutes walk away. Here you will find lots of attractions and watersports.

The Promenade is long, wide & flat with frequent part shaded resting places so that you can sit and admire the lovely sea & beach views.

There are many cafe/restaurants built literally on the beach and the Promenade.

The beautiful new Marina offers lots of many interesting boat trips, fashionable boutiques, restaurants and places of interest.

Travel:

Fly to Malaga airport - Benalmadena is just (10 miles) / 15 km from the airport.

A cheap transfer:-

Train (inside the airport): fare: about £2 per person / journey time: about 15 minutes (lovely scenic route) / frequency: every 20 minutes / your apartment is 5-7 minutes' walk from the train station or immediately outside the station a taxi will drive you to your apartment for about euros 5.

Taxi: about £25-28 each way/about 10 minutes.

Key pick up at the 24 hour reception.

Paloma park (15 minutes walk) has a "flea market" (2nd hand items) on Wednesday and a normal market on Friday.

Tivoli car park (15 minutes walk) has a normal market on Friday.

Further Details:

Benalmadena-within easy walking distance Benalmadena has a "mini Disney World" with stage shows (Tivoli World). Opposite Tivoli World is the exciting cable car ride (Teleferica) which will take you to the top of the mountain!

Benalmadena has a very impressive new Marina development offering boat trips, restaurants, colourful shops and boutiques. If you fancy diving beneath the sea without getting wet there is the Sea Life Centre and if you would also like to see a dolphin show then the Selwo Marina is a must.

Fuengirola-easily accessible by local bus or train: there are many local attractions, such as a giant water park and a renowned zoo. In the Marina there is a "World of Watersports" available including parasailing, scuba diving, jet skiing and much more. Also nearby is the Miramar shopping centre which is a large modern covered shopping complex with cinemas (many films in English) and cafes.

There are many 1-day conducted coach trips:-

GIBRALTAR-very popular for shoppers looking for tax free goods.

For the more adventurous there are trips to places like Sevilla and Granada. And, just across the water to exotic Tangier in North Africa!
