My wife and I have been to Benalmadena on a number of occasions in the past 25/30 years and although we had visited the area a couple of times we hadn't ever spent any significant time here.

Jack & Linda's apartment was in a magnificent location with bars, eateries, supermarket etc within a stones throw but without being intrusive. The little town of Arroya de la miel was a very enjoyable short stroll away and worthy of a visit in it's own right.

The apartment itself was adorable and perfectly adequate with some lovely homely touches. We are the sleep and shower type of tourist but there was so much more if needed. Satellite TV is available if required and additionally there are ample cooking / washing machine facilities. Loved the view from the balcony but I can't comment on the pool as we didn't go near it preferring to explore in the beautiful sunshine.

Jack and Linda are charming hosts and you feel their warmth immediately. We took them up on their offer of airport pick up/drop off and it was so convenient. Having a late flight home they allowed us to stay in the apartment without charge until it was time to leave which was very much appreciated.

Thanks a million to you both. Our only regret is that we didn't / couldn't stay longer. Will we be back? If this apartment is available in our next window of opportunity rest assured we wouldn't hesitate to return.

In summary, if your looking for somewhere to stay in Benalmadena then you've found it. This place doesn't have top notch reviews for nothing.

Give me a shout if you require any further info, happy to help if I can.

Lovely local apartment in centre of bonanza square area . We always stay in this area as it's got so much going on . But it's our first time staying at jack and Linda's apartment but my husbands brother has stayed there so we have been in it before . It's in walking distance of the lovely park . And the beach and beautiful harbour . Jack and Linda are both lovely people and made us feel really welcome

“Benalmadena Bonaza one bedroomed apartment ,on 7th floor,accessible by two lifts,home from home all you can possibilty”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Took advantage of Jack's and Linda's airport pick up/return service to Malaga Airport,cost 20 euros each way ,but it is far better than getting a taxi or the train,especially when there is 3 of you. Therefore we were very reaxed when we arrived at the apartment. Linda and Jack had obviously worked very hard on the changeover from the previous tenant,ie change of linen/cleaning to allow us early entrance.

The flat is spacious for a one bedroomed flat, well equipped,scrupulously clean. If you want anything its there hob/combi microwave/grill/oven. Although everything was explained on arrival,not everything is taken it .When mentioned to Jack and Linda were given a practical demonstration of ovens capabilities (each selection has too be reselected and hob needs a firm touch.EVERYTHING WORKING FINE.

Although there is winter and air conditioning (not coin operated) we didn't need it during our visit. Jack and Linda welcome any contributions tgo the pot foe future bills if you use it.

WOW, WOW, free fast WIFI internet.(Most of advertised apartments in Benalmadena do not have this or if they do there is a charge) Large tv,films numerous books. You really dont have to bring any with you)

There are numerous channels with the android box (instructions are supplied) including Sky Sports(MANY FOOTBALL MATCHES WATCHED BY MY HUSBAND). Thank you for showing my sister and myself the capabilities of the system which my sister now wants me to install in the uk when i buy 2 boxes.

The bedroom is bigger than i thought it would be,giant wardrobe,only 20% filled by us 3,even after numerous shopping trips.My sister had been allocated the sofa bed in lounge,easily set up,suppied with linen and two blankets ,not quite as comfortable as our beds. The only setback was caused by my 90% deaf husband who can be quite noisy on his night visits to bathroom and his habit of getting up , to make a cuppa,and read at 6am,while she like to sleep till 8am.

The bathroom,extremely clean,with lots of useful products in cabinet.My husband used shower which was very good, but my sister and i have baths so find the colour of ceiling distracting.

My sister and myself and occasionally my husband went on numerous bus/train trips to Malaga and surrounding towns. Fares were very cheap compared with UK. you don't need to hire a car.

The main reason is why we chose this apartment were the views from the balcony,plus sun from 9.30 to 2pm plus sky sports. My husband was happy to get the apartment to himself nearly pushing us out of the door to get some peace
