Read the reviews before I booked. We weren't disapointed. The apartment catered for all our needs. Pool nice to,..quite and ideal for relaxing,Shops nearby and 10-15 walk to the beach promenade. Marina defenitly worth a visit. More than enough restaurants nearby to cater for everyone. We had a brilliant time and would not hesitate in booking the apartment again. Although may struggle in the future with all the good reviews !!
The apartment was perfect for the our 8 day holiday. It was spacious, had everything you needed and was very clean. Brian the owner was extremely helpful throughout the booking the process
The 2 wheeled shopping trolleys where very handy when shopping. We shopped at Lidl which was very reasonable and had everything you needed (it's down the hill to the main road, turn left and about 500 metres down the road)
There were lots of things to see and do in Benalmadena for our 4 year old daughter in particular Paloma Park. We would also recommend a walk to Arroyo (about a 25 minute walk), which was a local Spanish town where you could get a cable car up the nearby mountain, the views were amazing were amazing!
We stayed in Brian and Frances's apartment for seven weeks in Jan/Feb. It is on 1st floor of a very well maintained complex. The apartment is very spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine and oven. The English tv and wi fi were appreciated, as we were away for a long period, we could keep in touch with family through the internet. The main bedroom was large and light and the king size bed very comfortable. As we drove to Spain, it was good to have private parking in the complex.
The balcony didn't get much sun this time of year, but we could see the sea in a couple of spots and loved watching the sunrise.
You are about 10 minutes walk to Lidl, downhill. We didn't find the walk back uphill too bad at all. The Marina (a lovely place) is also within 10 minutes walk. Arroyo is a 20 minute walk and you can also walk to the train station 'El Pinillo' in 20 minutes. Buses are plentiful a 5 minute walk away and very cheap. All in all the apartment is situated in a great location. We have visited Benalmadena 4 times now and love it. There are so many places to visit, lovely walks and so many restaurants to choose from, all reasonably priced. Brian responded very quickly to all my emails and everything went very smoothly. We had a fantastic time, so much so that we are returning again next year. Can't wait!
My wife and I stayed in the apartment over the Christmas holiday. Everything was spotlessly clean and prepared for our arrival. The apartment benefits from heating during the cooler months but, due to being a little dense, I couldn't fathom it. Rather than risk freezing I was obliged to email Brian the owner on Christmas Day for help and he replied instantly to ensure we soon warmed up again. Great tv package that includes sports and movies so, if the weather should be a little inclement [it was great for us] you shouldn't get too bored. 5/10 minute walk to the Marina and excellent Chinese [China Fu] at the end of the street. Overall, highly recommended in every way.
Just returned home from a 2 week stay at this apartment, our second time of staying here and just like the first time it was fab. Again the booking process was easy with quick email responses from Brian. He answered all our queries and was very helpful when we thought we might have to cancel our stay. However thankfully we didn't and we got to spend 2 glorious weeks in don
joaquin. The apartment is clean, home from home with everything you'd need for a self catering holiday. Plenty of towels to use, utensils for cooking decent meals and shopping trolleysite to help bring the shopping back up the long hill! To anyone considering booking this apartment go for it you won't be disappointed, I think all the reviews show what an excellent place this is. We love it here and hope to be back soon. As for the area itself it's a beautiful and friendly town with lots to do and also lots to explore further a field like Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Malaga and Mijas. Thanks Brian!
