What a great apartment and location...10/10
Just returned from my 11 day stay at Diana 2 apartment..
If you require a clean, comfortable, home from home apartment.
If you want all home comforts...down to cotton and needles..
If you want english TV
If you want a short walk to the Marina, Restaurants, Supermarket and Bus stops.
This is the very place that ticks all the boxes....
Add a large veranda which is accessed from the Bedroom and Living Room with fantastic views to the Marina which can also be seen when sitting on the settee..
Cooker, Washing Machine, Iron, Hair Drier, Microwave Oven, Toaster, Fridge.....Loads of Hot water..
With a Bus Card available for the very local Tobacco Shop put 10 Euros charge on it and travel to all the local towns, Malaga for only 1.05 Euros....what value is that...
Just 3 mins to the fantastic promenade where you can pick your choice of literally tens of restaurants,
Walk to Torremolinos at an easy leisurely pace past shops restaurants and more.
We went on a boat trip from the marina and used the boat ferry to Fuengirola, an hour trip and came back on the 1 euro bus..great.
When you arrive at Malaga Airport just walk across the road to the Train station and for 3.5 Euros takes you to Benalmadena where for 6 Euros will take you straight to the apartment
On going home we ordered a taxi from the Taxi rank near to the apartment and cost 20Euros takes the worry of missing Buses or Trains..
The owner, Jackuie is fantastic, great communication and made everything so easy, keys arrived and all details, even a map for the taxi driver, though he knew where the apartment was.
We called in at numerous hotels to watch the evening shows at no cost ...all in all a fantastic holiday..
You must not miss the cable car up the local mountain and at 1.30 and 4 pm there is a fantastic free Falcon display with many other birds of prey. The cable car was 11 Euros, the show is free.Less if you are 65 or over.
Places you must visit...
Mijas, a mountain village..bus 121 and the usual 1,05 Euros..
Benalmadena pueblo same bus route as Mijas
Arroyo same bus as Mijas, this is where the station is situated...
Malaga bus 110, again only 1.05 Euros
Granada/ Alhambra palace.. book at the local shop just around the corner from the apartment..55 Euros including a guide and free time in Granada..fantastic trip.
Gibraltar, again booked at the same place, around 52 Euros, including free time and a trip around the rock and a visit to the caves..
