Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in May with my three year old.

Booking was really straightforward with Catherine. Replied straight away to messages and given phone numbers to contact if required.

The apartment is lovely. Spotlessly clean on arrival and had everything we needed. Nice to have a balcony that got the sun at the end of the day too, meaning that wet swimming things were dry before bedtime.

Whilst we were there they were painting around the pool ready for the main season. Only the two small pools were open at that time, which was fine for us. The pool bar was open by the end of the week. However, there are nowhere near enough sun loungers to go around, even in mid May when it was quiet...I expect this is far worse in high season. Definitely worth buying your own from the shop on the corner if you intend to be at the pool every day.

The apartment directly overlooks the garden area so noise from outside is not an issue. However, the landings to all the apartments are open mezzanine style across all eight floors and some evenings, there was a lot of noise from late returning guests. Fortunately my little one is a deep sleeper, so it didn't disturb her...but I would take ear plugs next time.

Supermarket right across the road is well stocked, loads of bars and restaurants close by and short walk to Paloma Park ( with great kids playground and loads of wildlife) and sea front.

Would definitely recommend and if we go back to Benalmadena would stay here again.

A bright and airy apartment in a great location which is kept spotlessly clean by Mel. The apartment overlooks beautiful gardens, the pool area and also has lovely views over Paloma Park, the mountains and to the sea. Supermarkets, bars and restaurants are all within close proximity. Transport links are great with taxi, bus and trains within easy reach. The apartment really is a home from home. Thankyou to Catherine and Peter for ensuring our holidays in your apartment have been perfect!

Beautiful accommodation and an amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

WOW! That was our first impression on arrival in your beautiful studio. It is so well looked after and was immaculate, everything we needed to make our holiday great – even down to cool blocks in the freezer which kept our drinks chilled by the pool! Stunning views from the balcony of some of the pool, gardens and mountains. The air conditioning was well used – great that you can ‘hold’ it when you go out and then ‘resume’ it on your return so it’s not wasted. The pool area is great – kept my son amused all day on the slides and under the bridges. Plenty bars and restaurants in Bonanza Square and Ibensa Square to keep us happy. We had an amazing holiday so a big ‘thank you’ for letting us use your studio – we will be returning next year! X

Lovely Studio Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this beautiful studio apartment. It was spotlessly clean and had all the comforts of home you would wish for, with fantastic views from the balcony and a wonderful pool complex with snack bar. There were plenty of nice bars and restaurants nearby and a well stocked supermarket just across the road. This complex is in a great location and perfect for families and couples alike. We will certainly book this apartment again, many thanks Catherine and Peter.

super value and very comfortable!!!

  • 5 of 5

we've stayed in this lovely studio apartment for 14 nights. It is very clean and modern. There is one double bed and one sofa bed. Both are very comfortable. The mattress on the sofa bed is very thick (double - it is convenient for a couple).

The double bed is very comfortable too. The aircon and van is a very good combination and we had very good night sleeps even it was very hot outside. The balcony is super as you can relax there with an amazing view. The bathroom is perfect and clean. The kitchen part is really well equipped and I could cook some dish if we did not want to go out for dinner. I could recommend to families with 2 children or even 3 if the kids are young or any couple who wants to have some relaxing holiday for a very reasonable price. The apartment is on the 4th floor so the pool is close. The pool is very clean too and there are pools for children so even very young kids can enjoy. I highly recommend this studio to anyone who wants to have a lovely holiday and want to keep the cost down.

Sauber und genau wie die Bilder zeigen

  • 4 of 5

Wirklich sauber und gepflegt, die Anlage macht einen guten, sicheren Eindruck. Gut ausgestattete Einrichtung sogar mit Sonnenschirm für den Strand. Zu zweit absolut okay, für mehr wäre es eng. Kleiner Balkon mit Nachmittagsonne. Nur Kochtöpfe zu klein und nichts für Kaffe kochen, Küche eher als Notlösung. Etwas hellhörig aber nachts ruhig.

Das Appartement liegt auf einem Hang, zu Fuss etwas weiter zum Strand oder Hafen. Aber es gibt alles in der nächsten Nähe: Supermarkt, Kaffees, Bars, Restaurant, Parkplätze und der Park. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen, waren nicht viel im Appartement.

Malaga airport is a 15/20 minute taxi ride away. Car hire is not essential. Nearest train station is a ten minute walk in the village of Arroyo De La Miel.(Trains depart to Airport every 20mins.) Train from Airport to Benalmadena is 8 stops away in direction of Fuengirola, journey time 20 mins.
