Guestbook comments from the owner

We would like to rebook your apt for the end of the year as we enjoyed our summer holiday there. It was well equiped with kitchen utensils and was spotlessly clean with fresh linen available.

Accomodation was clean and being on the 3rd floor was not up too high.

Spotless with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

My family has been using this apartment for nearly 20 years cannot fault the apartment and amenities available. The apartment is close to bus stops and only a 10 min walk to the train station. The owners have always been very helpful and have always transferred the security deposit back to myself as soon as I arrive home. Would recommend this apartment to anyone who wishes to either enjoy exploring the local area or relaxing by the large pool area.

Good base to visit Benalmadena

  • 4 of 5

We booked this apartment on-line while holidaying in Spain and the process was easy and straightforward and the owners were helpful and prompt.

The apartment is in a fairly large block, or pair of blocks with a manned reception area that joins the two blocks. Parking was in an off road area in front of the apartments and was no problem for us. Summer may be busier!

The apartment itself is on the first floor (lifts and stairs access) and has a small kitchen area in one corner and a bathroom (shower, bath and toilet). It has most things you are likely to need and we were very comfortable there during our two week stay and the flat and the apartment buildings were clean and pleasant. There is a small balcony which gets the morning sun and has views of the sea. There is also a garden area with pool but we didn't use this. Instead we generally walked to the seafront (short walk) usually via the nearby park which has various features that make it a pleasant place to wander. This is the Costa del Sol so there are ample places to eat, drink, sit, walk etc, both on the sea front and local to the apartments.

All in all, a pleasant place to stay and we enjoyed it!

My 2 week break in Benalmadena

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable stay at this studio. Plenty of room for two and sufficient facilities in the studio. Also quite safe and secure. Pleasant location between Arroyo de la Miel and Benalmadena. Bus stops both ways outside the Minerva apartments just 20 meters from the front door. Large supermarket less than 100 meters away and plenty of restaurants and bars too. Highly recommended.
