Fantastic apartment with central location
If you want to stay in Benalmadena, then this is the place to be. This central location (between the "Bird Park" and the "Windmill Roundabout" is set back from the road so you are not disturbed by the busy main road.
The apartment layout - 3 bedrooms (2 ensuit and the other next to a family bathroom) living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, utility area and a 180 degree balcony / patio and bbq area – is a viable alternative to a villa if you don’t want to be suck out in the hills and relying on a car. It worked particularly well for our party – 2 parents, 2 grandparents and two children – as there was enough room so we didn’t feel we were on top of each other.
The apartment was clean and well maintained. (As is the whole of Pueblo Quinta.) This is helped by Jose and his wife working at the supermarket located in the shopping parade within Pueblo Quinta. They are both extremely friendly and spoke excellent English, if like me your Spanish is very rusty. If anything arose or we had a question, we simply popped down and Jose or a family member would deal with it on the spot. Our previous experience of villas is that you can wait a few days until a management company comes back to you if even the most basic of requests.
Our children were 2 ½ years’ and 8 months’ old when we went. The apartment was perfectly safe for them. It was great that it was on one level as the baby was crawling and the family bathroom was quite large and had a bath. As it is the penthouse the apartment is up two flights of stairs. This was fine for us, but others may find it an issue – took the decision to keep the pushchairs at the bottom of the stairs as it is a gated community. But the one down side was the swimming pool for our daughter. It is an adult pool and the shallow end was too deep for her to stand in as she was 2 ½ years’ old.
