Puerto Marina, Benalmadena Costa:

Puerto Marina is one of the main attractions of Benalmadena Costa. In an ideal location, you're just a few minutes' walk away from the marina so that you can enjoy it without having the noise and bustle when you'd rather relax.

At the marina there is a huge selection of bars and restaurants, English-style or Spanish, even an excellent Greek restaurant and of course, some excellent fish restaurants. Enjoy a real Spanish paella with a glass of wine!

For family holidays there is the Sea Life Centre and often there are also huge trampolines which are great fun for children!

You can take a boat trip around the marina, to Fuengirola or to Malaga. You can take a trip to watch for dolphins or, for the more adventurous, some deep sea sport fishing.

Local attractions:

Benalmadena Costa is an ideal location for a variety of entertainment. You will easily be able to visit historic sites such as the Alhambra in Granada and the town of Ronda. You can visit the very typical and attractive village of Mijas, or go to Gibraltar for the day. If you don't have a car, don't worry!! Coach trips are easily available locally.

In the more immediate local area you can visit the local Aquapark or Crocodile Park at Torremolinos, Selwo Marina in Benalmadena, Sea Life Centre on the Puerto Marina and Tivoli World Amusement Park in Arroyo de la Miel. There is a cable car near Tivoli World to take you into the mountains.

Local markets are interesting, and shops, restaurants, bars and beach are all within easy walking distance.

Car hire is not necessary at Artemarina!!

Local beaches:

Artemarina is in an excellent location to enjoy the sandy beaches of the Costa del Sol. The nearest beach is just 2 minutes walk from the apartments. The sand slopes gently into the sea and so great for swimmers of all levels.

The promenade connects up the Castillo de Bil Bil right along to Torremolinos, passing through Puerto Marina and La Carihuela. There are some excellent local bars and chiringuitos to stop at whilst you stroll along enjoying the sunshine and wonderful sea views!

Owner's Response: So glad you had such a lovely time - lots of little things are important to us, for example comfortable beds! We all do our best to make sure everything is just right! Would also mention that we do provide DVDs. There is a selection in each apartment and people like to swap! We all look forward to welcoming you at Artemarina again soon!

Great location! Close to the beach, shops, and restaurants

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location! The apartment was perfect for those wanting to stay close to the beach and not rent a car. Apartment itself was a bit disappointing. It was dirty upon arrival. I emailed the owner and was only told that they don't usually have this problem and she'd speak to the cleaners. No offer to have someone come in and fix it. Floors were covered in dirt and cobwebs throughout most the house. I had to go to the store to by cleaner and spent the first day of our vacation cleaning because even my kids were disgusted! The double bed was actually what we consider a full and not comfortable for 2 people. There's what looks like mold growing on one of the bedroom walls. It didn't seem active, but it should be addressed. We found coackroches in the bottom kitchen cabinet.

The washing machine was a pay per use (which was not advertised before hand). I don't mind paying if I know ahead of time, as we packed lighter expecting to be able to do laundry. The washing machine is tricky to figure out (even following the directions step by step). Turns out the timer for each load is set but the washer will turn off after that time, even with the wash cycle not complete! No way to know that as it's not mentioned anywhere. Only knew because we called thinking something was wrong with the washer.

Overall we made the best out of it and our time together; the beach made it great, however I don't think we'd stay there again unless the cleaning standards were brought up.

Owner's Response: We have an excellent team of cleaners - every week they do an excellent job and we never have complaints. Just the opposite - our cleaning team are frequently complimented on the high quality of their work. When you emailed me - three days AFTER your arrival, you mentioned that you didn't know how to use the washing machine and that the floors were dirty. I immediately - the same day - sent our cleaner to show you how to use the washing machine and to clean the apartment for you. At that time you didn't want it cleaned but were looking for compensation. We don't work that way – the apartments are presented in an excellent condition and we don't provide compensation when there is talk of a bad review. We have lots of very good reviews and many visitors returning every year. We work hard to maintain the high standard required and enjoy doing so!

Costa del sol
Car: not necessary

Benalmadena Costa is an excellent location for a family holiday or golf breaks on the Costa del Sol! We are an easy drive from Malaga Costa Del Sol Airport also known as Pablo Ruiz Picasso Airport.

Just 2 minutes from the apartments, you can walk to Puerto Marina, visit the bars & restaurants and the sandy beaches of the Costa del Sol. See the mountains of the Sierra Nevada whilst swimming in the sea!

You will be in an ideal location to visit the Alhambra in Granada and beautiful local towns such as Mijas and Ronda. Don't miss a visit to Malaga to visit the Picasso Museum, and a chance to sample tapas and Malaga Dulce vino!

Within an easy walking distance are local shops, restaurants and many tourist facilities. Visit Sea Life Centre in Benalmadena, Selwo Marina, Tivoli World, or visit nearby Torremolinos for the Aqua Park and Crocodile Park.

For golfers there is the 'Costa del Golf' - to name a few nearby clubs: Torrequebrada Golf; Valderrama Golf, Benalmadena Golf; Mijas.

Golf: There are over 50 golf courses along the Costa del Sol. A few of the nearest to Los Pintores Apartments would be Benalmadena Golf, Torrequebrada Golf, Mijas Golf, Valderrama Golf Club, La Cala, La Reserva de Sotogrande - the list is long!

This area of the Costa del Sol is rightly often called the 'Costa del Golf' !

The area is also a perfect location to bring the family. Whilst the golfers are away, there is plenty to keep the family occupied!

I can arrange golf transport and tee discounts.

Ski: Benalmadena Costa is ideally situated for those wanting a winter break of sunshine and beach, but also a trip to the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada. The Sierra Nevada is only about an hour and a half away by car and the skiing is fantastic. Enjoy the relaxing sunny beaches one day and the excitement of the ski slopes the next!
