Property was clean and welcoming and very handy for all local amenities. German, the owner, was very pleasant and made us most welcome when we arrived. We had no need to contact him during our stay as we found everything we needed. Benajarafe is a very 'Spanish' location with very few English speakers, which did cause some communication problems at times, but all were very patient with our attempts at speaking in very broken Spanish. I would not hesitate in recommending this property for a relaxing holiday in the sun, and would go back myself some time in the future.

Booking was easy and straightforward. When we arrived we were given a lovely welcome and the apartment was perfect for my son and myself with absolutely everything that anyone would need for a very comfortable stay. It was also very clean I cooked most nights and the kitchen was well kitted out with everything needed to make a good meal. The beds were comfortable with pleanty of extra blankets, and everything we needed was in the apartment. The block was also very quiet, and considering it was in the middle of Holy Week with celebrations going on well into the night, this was a surprise and very welcome as we live in the middle of rural Wales where it is very quiet. Catch the no 4 bus and it takes you directly to the station, the old town and the sea, ( get a pass from a tabac shop for around 10.90 as it's much easier and saves money) but I found it great to be based away from these more busy areas . The food very close to the apartment is very good and much cheaper than in the centre of town. There are fresh fruit shops, a butchers and a large supermarket very close by and lits of cafes and restaurants within a few minutes walking. We hired bikes from Malaga Bike Tours and Rentals by Kay Farrell which was cheap, the bikes well maintained , and this was the perfect way to look around the city.. I think I struck lucky with this apartment in Malaga. It is reasonably priced, in a great area, fully kitted out and has a very helpful and nice owner... what more would you want!! We will defi itely be coming back!! Thank you so much Katherine !
