Bright spacious two bedroomed apartment with new air conditioning. The apartment is on the 3rd floor and has two large balconies with all day sun and sea views. The balcony off the living area has a BBQ area with dining table, sun beds and outside sofas. The balcony off the main bedroom has sunbeds and dining table with seating. The apartment can sleep up to six people and consists of a double bedroom, twin bedroom and sofa bed in the lounge area. The kitchen is fully equipped with cooker, washing machine, kettle, toaster and microwave. The lounge has a flatscreen TV with satellite stations including BBC, ITV and Sky Sports 1. There is also a DVD player. Pueblo Evita has 3 pools to enjoy including an indoor heated pool and a rooftop pool with fantastic views. The apartment is a five minute walk from the beach and promenade. There are many bars and restaurants a short walk from the complex. The award winning Benalmadena Marina is a short walk away with many bars and restaurants. Sea Life is a five minute walk from the Apartment. The beautiful white washed villages of Benalmadena Pueblo and Mijas can be accessed by bus. Fuengirola, Malaga are a short train journey away. Benalmadena is an ideal base to visit towns such as Ronda, Cordoba and Granada. Due to the typical Andalusian village architecture and landscape, it would not be suitable for people with reduced mobility as there are no lifts.

About Judith Lennon
Judith lives and works in Ireland and bought her lovely property in Pueblo Evita after holidaying for many years in the complex. Benalmadena is an ideal place to live or holiday in as the transport system is so good, Malaga with all the attractions it has to offer is only a 20 min journey by train, which opens up the rest of Spain for exploration.
Judith Lennon purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Judith Lennon chose Benalmádena
I have spent many holidays in this complex and never tire of spending time here. Whether it's in the Summer or winter time. The complex has two outdoor pools and one indoor heated pool so swimming every day is possible and I love to swim! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The complex has all the amenities one could require. My property is very spacious with the added bonus of 2 huge terraces which get the sun all day. There is a fantastic Mercadona across the road where I shop daily.
What makes this Apartment unique
This property had 2 lovely terraces both with sea views and sunny all day, ideal for relaxing on. The rooftop pool has wonderful views and that all important breeze!

Tired accommodation and a Misleading Brief
A somewhat disappointing short break due to our accommodation and a misleading perseption of where we thought we were staying, however we made the best of the location and enjoyed another part of Benalmadina that we had not been to before.
On arrival we called our point of contact who was to show us to our accommodation but only to be informed the cleaner would let us in as she apparently had just finished cleaning the apartment, 5 mins later she turned up with her children in tow, this we were informed was because the child was sick and she was taking her to hospital. We were led across the street and around the corner away from the main complex to another block of accommodation and informed our's was up 4 flights of stairs, we were asked if we were ok to let ourselves in as she needed to get to the Hospital, with the child in tow we felt obliged to let her go, so we sorted ourselves out. There was no mention of these stairs in the description of the apartment, a disappointing start!
The layout of the apartment was as described so no great shocks there, however, the apartment itself along with the furnishings, bedding, terrace furniture basically everything was tired and old apart from the the Fridge & Microwave. To say the apartment had been cleaned was an understatement, the surfaces had been wiped over and the floors swept but that was it as far as we could see, there was washing out on one of the terraces (towels etc) and that was left for us to fold and bring in! The terraces themselves were filthy, they have never been swept or washed down in months and the whole terrace furniture along with cushions/mattresses need replacing, they were strewn all over the terraces and soaking wet after the previous nights storms, why not have a storage box out there to store these items when the place is not occupied? Internally the bedding is so old and thin it needs to go along with the towels,the sofa throws and internal cushions. I know this seems a damming review, but the place does need some tlc and a little bit of time, effort and money spent on it to bring it back up to it's original specification, it seems as though people have taken there eye of the ball and just let it run and run, and unfortunately it has seen better days. On a personal note, I would think hard about who you can trust to look after your property in your absence if you are away and not in the country. I hope these comments help in the recovery of this property.
Thank you for your feedback. I’m surprised by your review, as we’ve only had 4 and 5 star reviews and happy return visitors. I would like to address your issues. I do not understand what exactly is misleading in the brief about the apartment? In the description it explains that ‘Due to the typical Andalusian village architecture and landscape, it would not be suitable for people with reduced mobility as there are no lifts.’ Also, it states that the apartment is on the 3rd floor. Perhaps you did not read the description completely before booking? Our apartment is in block 13, one of 15 blocks in the Pueblo Evita complex, most apartments in this block are privately owned but some are owned by Club Pueblo Evita, I will say Philip, that if you wanted to be by the reception in the main part of the complex that you could have booked directly with Club Pueblo Evita, but it would have cost you at least twice the price for the luxury. So, I strongly dispute your claim that the brief was misleading in anyway. Normal check in time is 4, at booking you requested an early check in, which we obliged you with. We agreed to check you in at 12.30, which puts pressure on our cleaners. I’m sorry that the girl who greeted you could not hang around but emergencies do happen. I gave you Vicky’s number and instructed you to ring her at any time if you had any problems or issues. Vicky says, at no time during your stay did you complain of any issues. The apartment was fully repainted less than 2 years ago, the bathroom is new. The sofa and furniture in the sitting room are 3 years old. The washing machine is 2 years old and I replace the towels/linen annually. The beds are due to be changed and this is planned for the New Year, however we have not received any complaints about them until now. We do ask guests to bring in cushions from the terrace, when not in use, unfortunately the previous guests left them out and they were wet from the storm so the cleaner left them out to dry. The terraces were retiled this June and the terrace furniture is 3 years old. The earlier storm piled debris and sand onto them, this is common and because you required an early check in, the cleaner could not be as precise as she normally is, if you check our previous reviews you shall see that we get great comments for the cleanliness of the apartment. The apartment is a privately owned apartment, a home from home, not a Hotel, so perhaps not suitable for your short stay. Regards, Judith
Excellent apartment, great location
We had a perfect relaxing holiday. The apartment is beautiful, spotless, very spacious with 2 great balconies and provides all you need to enjoy your holiday. The complex is great especially the roof top pool which provides a good selection of food and drinks.
I would highly recommend this apartment which is ideally located. It’s a short walk to the beach and a 10 minute walk into Arroyo
We look forward to returning next year
I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay in the apartment and enjoyed Benalmadena and Arroyo :-) Thanks so much for your lovely review, I appreciate you taking the time to write it. All the best wishes for the future and I hope to welcome you back soon.
Thanks again, Judith
We enjoyed a lovely week at Judith’s Apartment, it was in great condition & very clean. The facilities on site were also very good with plenty to do for our 3 children 8,12,14. It is also located a 5 mins walk to beach. Great Holiday😁
I'm so pleased you and your family had a great holiday. Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review and we hope to see you back soon!
All the best,
Had the most relaxing holiday😎
Just back from 6 nights in Judith's apartment and had a great time. Communication with Judith was excellent as with Gillian who was there to meet us. Apartment was exactly as described, with lovely outside space. We spent lots of time sunbathing on both balconies and then when the sun went away late in the afternoon we went upstairs to the rooftop terrace. Supermarket very close by and we ate at Sam's bar onsite. The meals were to a very high standard and very reasonably priced. Main meals about €8.50 and if you ordered 2 your bottle of wine was €4!! Will definitely return. Thank you Judith and Gillian .
I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the apartment. Delighted the weather stayed fine for you and you got plenty of sunbathing in, it's not always so nice in November! Thanks so much for taking the time to write your review, I really appreciate your feedback and I hope to see you back with us very soon.
All the best,
We had a fabulous two week stay in August. The apartment had great indoor and outdoor space. Everything we needed was available in the property. Loved the location too. Gillian was very helpful and easily contactable.
Would return as we all relaxed - children and adults alike. Thank you.
Delighted you had such a nice time at our apartment and thanks so much for your nice review. I would be happy to welcome you back anytime in the future.
All the best,
Lovely apartment, great location
Loved this apartment, was clean and had everything you might need home from home. Easy to book and communication with Judith was very good as was meeting Gillian to collect/drop keys. Perfect location for beach and the 2 pools Pueblo Evita offers. We spent many days at the roof top pool with fantastic views all round and was only a few more steps up from the apartment. Supermarket very close to apartment as well as many bars/restaurants and only about 15 min walk to the Marina. BBQ we used and was lovely to just relax for the evening with night views of Benalmadena. We stayed here as 2 couples and was very comfortable. Would highly recommend this apartment and will stay again.
I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the apartment and thank you for taking the time to write your lovely review. I would be delighted to welcome you back anytime.
All the best,
Pueblo Evita is located in an ideal area for bars and restaurants. The beach is only a 700 m walk away where one can find a huge selection of bars and restaurants. There are two restaurants on the complex. Arroyo de la Miel is only a 10 minute walk away where one can find a variety of bars, shops and restaurants. One can also take the very efficient train to Malaga and Fuengirola from here. Tivoli World is only a 15 minute walk away, Sea World is a 10 minute walk.
