Lovely family-friendly location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a lovely week with our 10 month old daughter at Reggie and Christine's apartment in April and had really relaxing time. The nearby Paloma park was perfect for family picnics and there was an endless supply of great restaurants in the square opposite or along the promenade to the Marina. We had a couple trips out to Malaga and up the mountain on the cable car, but there was plenty for us to do either by the pool or down at the beach. The apartment was a perfect size for us and well-equipped: we loved having breakfast or a sunset drink on the balcony. A great first holiday for our daughter and a chance for the parents to recharge their batteries too!

Brilliant holiday in a lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the apartment and went into panic mode as I didn't have the letter Christine and Reggie sent me to hand into Reception to be given the keys! A quick phone call to Reggie sorted the problem out as he had a word with the manager who handed the keys over promptly. The apartment was lovely! True to the pictures and in a lovely central area. I loved that the apartment was on the very top floor - so no noisy footsteps above us! The apartment was very clean with lots of storage space. The kitchen was well kitted out with everything needed. The only thing we missed was a microwave. My husband has Diabetes so has porridge every morning. Anyway, we did it the old fashioned way in a pan!

We've stayed in Benalmadena many times but the area the apartment was in was new to us. There was a very well stocked, big supermarket a stone's throw away and some lovely bars. We went to The Greenhouse bar a couple of times to eat and drink mulled wine. Great music in the background.

It is a nice walk downhill to the sea and the quickest route back we found was up "Cardiac Hill" (not as bad as it sounds!) opposite The Riviera Hotel. About the same length of walk again up to Arroyo de Miel.

The weather was a bit cool when we arrived so we made use of the couple of heaters in the apartment and also the warm air from the air conditioner. The weather improved after the 3rd day so all was well.

I would absolutely recommend Christine and Reggie's apartment and am already looking at flights to see when we can go again!

Spotlessly clean everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is in a very good position for the numerous bars and restaurants, 5-10 min walk up to Arroyo for the town and train station, 5-10 mins walk down to the beach. Apartment has everything you need for a home from home stay, very quiet at night so no problem getting to sleep. Would recommend.

Thank You

Beautiful central apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this gem of an apartment. All the comforts of home and spotlessly clean. Its central to everything with a supermarket, atm, and sports bar for the rugby just a short stroll away!! Go right and in about 10 -15 minutes you are at Benalmadena Marina which is stunning. Left and 5 minutes will take you to the main town. Pool complex is just fabulous. We loved our stay in Christine and Reggies apartment and will go again!
