About the Owner

My husband and myself have been enjoying holidays in Benalmadena for nearly 40 years. We took our kids here every year and now they take their kids too. We bought this apartment just over 15 years ago and it is a second home to our family as well as a holiday home for others..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect for a young family, lots for us to do and a fantastic pool for the days we stayed in. A really well equipped apartment which is clean and well maintained.

A lovely apartment for a couple, we had a relaxing holiday by the pool and beach then enjoyed the 100's of ocean view restaurants and particularly the bar on the beach for an after dinner cocktail or two. We also enjoyed an overnight trip to Granada which I really really recommend.

A group of three girls on our first holiday abroad we enjoyed the lively 24 hour square which is a short cab ride away whilst staying in a nice, clean apartment for quiet days by the pool.

Unfortunately, it was not only me and my girlfriend who stayed at the apartment. Been to Benal Beach before and stayed in a different apartment. Other apartment did not have this issue. Very disappointing and the owners should definitely get this sorted. The AC was a bit of a let down too, was not told that it was on a meter, ended up spending a lot of money just to stay cool.

But do not be scared away from Benalmadena because it is an amazing place with plenty to do, just make sure to stay somewhere else:)

Owner's Response: Hi It's a shame you didn't contact us whilst you were there so we could have acted imidiately to stop the spread, we have had the apartment for ten years and never had a complaint or problem with bugs. It seems that in the two weeks it was empty we had a cockroach problem. We have had a full fumigation now so won't be a problem again. Sorry for your troubles and thank you for your feedback.

really enjoyed our stay at Benal beach & loved not having to get up early for sunbeds!!

  • 4 of 5

We really had a great time at Benal Beach. The apartment was perfectly adequate for the 3 of us. It's a huge complex but you don't feel like it's overrun with people, there's a lot of space. There was some noise late at night in the corridor but it wouldn't put us off going again. The pool area was great & our daughter loved the slides etc. It was such a change from previous places we have stayed as there is no mad rush for sunbeds. The pool area didn't open until 10am & there Is plenty of grass area for everyone. You do have to pay for the sunbeds (3.50 euros each) but this was ok with us & we know before we arrived. You don't have to hire the beds, you can just lay your towel on the grass. Benal Beach is an excellent location for the restaurants along the seafront or a stroll to the marina. We Would recommend BB & hope to return again

Very clean, comfortable and spacious enough for 4 people.

  • 5 of 5

On arrival, 3 hours earlier than the apartment should have been ready we were pleasantly surprised to find that the keys were ready for collection and we had instant access.

On opening the front door we were delighted with the size of the apartment and how fresh and clean it was. We wanted for nothing as all the necessary utensils were in this apartment. The pull out bed was the most comfortable one that we have slept in to date and it was also very easy to pull out and fold away which is always a plus.

The owners of the property were very prompt in replying to any queries that we had from our initial enquiry until we departed. We would highly recommend this apartment and indeed the Benal Beach complex itself as it has plenty to do. 5 pools and 7 waterslides to keep the kids occupied during the day, good food and drinks at a reasonable price by the pool entrance. A games room with pool tables and video games which was well maintained and supervised most of the time. The pools also had plenty of lifeguards on duty at all times.

Nearby, there are plenty of bars and restaurants with the "Rat Pack", around the corner providing good food at a very good price from morning breakfast's to evening dinners. Bonanza Square is a 10 minute walk away with a large number of family friendly bars and restaurants.

All in all, a great place to stay with easy access to all local attractions.

The property is in a great location near to bars restaurants and the beach. We had such a lovely time and the air con was definitely needed. The apartment is clean and tidy and the pools and slides are awesome.

Value for money

  • 3 of 5

Basic apartment in a nice block, it would be hot in summer but there is air con at an additional cost.Good access to pool, mini supermarket, and near to promenade and beach. Reviews from others are helpful about directions and local amenities. Easy to get to by train from the airport. There are nice restaurants nearbye. The local park is beautiful. The tourist train is worth getting on as Benalmadena is hilly away from the coast.

From the Owner

The area has grown over the years with more and more hotels popping up but Benal Beach is still our favourite place. The pool with its own chutes and slides is so big that I can always find a quiet place to relax and the grand kids can always find others to play with. We enjoy the beach too and with so many different spots it makes every day different. We love to walk in the park watching the terrapins in the water, feeding the ducks, trying to find a rabbit to feed or watching the donkeys and goats. We enjoy the marina for a walk in the day or dinner at night and the walk along the promenade with its shops, bars and restaurants is always a treat.

From the Owner

It is easy to get to with a 2hr 30min flight from London and a 20min taxi ride the other end. Once you are here you're spoilt for choice. The apartment is a well maintained family home, it has everything a family could need to enjoy a week in the sun without having to bring lots of extra bits from home. We try to think of everything we can add to make your holiday easy and fun. For example board games for you to play or books for you to borrow, sun chairs you can take to the beach and a washing machine for longer stays.
