The apartment is unfortunately not suitable for those with mobility problems due to the many steps that go with being on the 4th floor. It is however more than worth the effort for the peace and quiet and fantastic views over the pan tile roofs to the sea! There are no lifts in the complex.

About Rachel Wardell

Hello! We are the Wardell's - Jeff and Rachel, we live in North Yorkshire with our two children, 2 dog's and rabbit! We have been holidaying in Benalmadena for the past 13 years as a family and Jeff for the past 30 years as his parents had an apartment in the same area. We decided that it was time to buy our own holiday home to get to Spain more often! There is so much to do in and around Benalmadena and Arroyo de la Miel that we never get bored and neither do the kids! It is such a good base for exploring the Costa del Sol by car, we love going to Malaga and Gibraltar or just up into the hills, there is so much to see you are really spoilt for choice. We enjoy 3-4 holidays a year in the apartment and are constantly updating things to keep the apartment in tip top condition and as comfortable and well equipped as possible - like a home from home.

Rachel Wardell purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Rachel Wardell chose West Costa del Sol

We bought the apartment in this complex because there is so much to offer, you can make the holiday relaxing or fun packed!, it is in a great location and the excellent transport services make it easy to get to from Malaga Airport, there are flights every day to choose from. When we land we just hop on a train and get off in Arroyo / Benalmadena, go for a drink and Tapas in Plaza Espana and then wander down to the apartment - instant relaxation! If you know the area it is an easy walk from the train station. Otherwise it is easier by taxi!

What makes this apartment unique

Our balcony is our favourite part of the apartment, it is the perfect sheltered suntrap for the winter months, even when we visit at Christmas or in Feb we can have our breakfast outside and enjoy the sun all day long. Weather permitting!! We love having the peace and quiet that goes with being above it all on the 4th floor.

We love to see a mountain or a sea view, and the unique selling point for us was the amazing roof terrace with pool, it is beautiful! looking over Benalmadena and Avenida de Palmeras (Palm Tree Avenue)to the sea, and watching the sun go down behind the mountains in the west with an obligatory glass of Rioja!

Good location

  • 3 of 5

The location was great for us. Getting to the apartment is so easy; train from the airport (every 20mins) to Arroyo (journey 20mins) then a 15 min walk (or a 6 euro taxi) down to Pueblo Evita. The apartment is a couple of minutes from a very good supermarket, 10 minutes from the front and handily placed for very good bus services to places such as Benalmadena Pueblo, Mijas, Feungirola, Malaga etc. The apartment itself is perhaps beginning to show it's age in places, eg the floor tiles and the bathroom, in particular, could do with an update. The matress looked old and was uncomfortable. Cooking was no problem, there were sufficient good utensils, crockery etc. The photographs show some good views from the terrace but not the terrace itself. It is actually quite enclosed with high walls on each side; the one on the right blocked the sun for the last hour or so before sunset. In the high heat of summer the only shade is afforded by a small, old parasol. A few steps up from the apartment is a very large roof terrace, with pool (in summer) and lots of very good sunbeds and tables and chairs. There are extensive views in all directions and it would be lovely to watch the sunset from up there, unfortunately it was only open between 12-3pm. The indoor pool, also very close, was open from 3-6pm. We had mostly good weather and did enjoy the location, we particularly like Arroyo, but on balance would not choose this apartment on our next visit.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay, firm mattresses and traditional floors are not for everyone. Whilst we would never replace the marble floor we are modernising the bathroom shortly with a white suite. As with all of the complex our balcony is walled on each side, offering a shelter from the winds and privacy, usually enjoyed on a February stay. The 1.8m parasol used on the balcony unfortunately may look old as it does get bleached by the sun, we also have a sail for the summer months. Unfortunately we cannot control the opening hours of the pools, over winter they do try to keep a happy balance of indoor and outdoor facilities, all dependant on the weather. I am disappointed to hear that you would not return, Rachel.

Fantastic, Clean, Modern, well maintained

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment as it looked much more up to date than a lot of others on the website. The booking process was made very easy by Rachel, she helped with all of our questions, and provided us with many tips and info, it is nice to have a more personal service. Terence the caretaker met us on arrival, he was very friendly and helpful. The apartment was spotless, modern décor, well maintained, very comfortable, well equipped. The aircon was great and cooled it down nicely in August - the coin meter seems fair as our coins lasted a good long time. The complex was lovely and we enjoyed eating in The Clubhouse - especially the Paella and BBQ evenings. The location is great for a mix of sightseeing, beach and pool days. We have booked again and we cannot wait to come back!

Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

As all reviews have said a brilliant apartment, very helpful owners, Terrance was there to meet us and helped with luggage and information.Downside was the steps but, well worth the climb.

The rest did us both a lot of good.

Well worth the visit, most certainly recomend this apartment.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

bright, clean, tidy and very comfortable apartment. Has everything you need and more including a brilliant spacious balcony . The balcony view comes at the price of several steps but we soon got used to that and the upside is that it's right next to the rooftop pool and indoor pool. restaurants and bars a minute away , 5 mins to the beach ,5 mins to paloma parque, 10 mins to arroyo centre with its excellent train service.

The complex is really very nice, with choice of 3 pools , plus an on site bar/ restaurant and the adjacent very pleasant SAMs bar . No hesitation to come back here again .
