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!

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely 10 night stay at this beautiful apartment. Me and my husband and my two sons had a great holiday. The apartment is spotlessly clean with everthing you need for a self catering holiday. All equipment ie washing machine etc are modern and in good working order. The apartment was big enough for the 4 of us with plenty of storage space. The safe was a nice touch and also the aircon is great for 1 euro for two hours and it cooled the room down nicely on an evening for the boys sleeping. The pool was a hit with the kids and we never bothered hiring the sunbeds as there is plenty of space on the lovely gardens to sunbathe. The pool area wasn't too busy either especially with it being august school hols. Lots of nice places to eat and drink at a stones throw away also a few supermarkets. I would definetly recommend this apartment to anyone and will book again myself.

Fantastic apartment! Had a lovely time :)

  • 5 of 5

A little gem of an apartment with all you could ask for!! As a couple in our late twenties we were searching for a relaxing holiday with some life nearby and your apartment provided us with everything that we were looking for. We were primarily impressed with the cleanliness and upkeep of the apartment; it was like a home from home! The Bonanza square which was a stone’s throw away, offered some great deals for some lovely food. The pool area and restaurant at the complex were also fantastic. Other attractions that we ventured to included the marina which offered many restaurants and had an enjoyable and busy atmosphere at night. The beach was only a ten minute walk away from the complex and it was easy to become distracted into one of the many exotic cocktail bars on the way home along the beach promenade. This apartment was everything that we were looking for in a holiday home as we had an excellent stay and very much hope to return some time in the near future. Many thanks, Scarlett and Gary.
