Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much Mo for letting us stay in your apartment,it played a great part in making our holiday so fantastic,I particularly enjoyed the location of the complex being close to the beach/marina/train station/La Paloma park/Theme park .Just across the road you have Bonanza Square where there is lots of Bars & Restaurants ,prices are very reasonable ,you can enjoy a Chinese meal for as little as 5 euros per person. A visit to the Marina is a must where you will be able to view the luxuries boats/villas where celabrities live ,boat trips to Fuengarloa etc etc.........The train station is only 30 minutes walk where you can catch the train to Malaga/Torrelominos /Fuengarola at a very cheap rate.A night visit to Arroyo de la Miel is also important especially at PLAZA ESPANA (fountain square)where bars open till late hours in the morning.Jupiter Minerva complex is money well spent where you can enjoy the award wining pools/gardens ,24hr reception in operation and staff are very helpful.Finally,we've been renting apartments from Mo & Debbie for nearly 6 years and we can't fault the cleaness and presentation of all their apartments and we found them to be very helpful in case of emergencies etc.Thanks so much Mo will be back soon.

A truley beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in a few of the apartment blocks within this complex now and have never been disapointed. This year, my wife & three kids went for two weeks and we rented from Mo & Debbie of one of their apartments in the Minerva complex. They were very helpful and did everything to make sure we were well looked after. The apartment itself was spacious and had enough room for all of us to move around comfortably without the feeling of being cramped. It had everything we expected and the aircon system was great. I think it was 1 euro for 2 and a half hours and believe me, it's well worth it and it works great. Even though we stayed in ground floor accommodation, it was not noisy and infact, it was quite the opposite as everyone seemed to take note of the warning signs asking people to respect other peoples peace and quiet. The pool facilities were second to non and the Minerva & Jupitor apartments shared the best pool. The pool was well looked after and you always felt safe letting the kids play in there as the life gaurds are on the ball. There are many things to do around Benalmadena and if you take the time to look around, you will realise that you can get everything you need at really good prices. There are literally hundreds of places to eat and drink from the 24 hour square for the younger kids to party to the marina whichj has some great places to eat and some stunning views. I would reccomend pinocchio's restaurant on the sea front and Tony's in the fountain bar square. All in all, you get more than you pay for but just dont expect 4 star as you wont get it. What you do get is everything you need at very good prices

Good be a lovely apartment but dated and dirty

  • 2 of 5

It had just been painted so smell of paint strong . The curtain for bedroom was full of dust and dirt and was left in corner no brackets to hold it up . Apartment needs updating and good clean ( could be lovely ) only 1 bath towel and hand towel for 2 of us . Only 1 egg cup . Poor show on that . Toaster broken but was replaced after waiting 3 days . In good position and could be lovely if updated and given good clean . We stayed 10 days

Clean out the personal junk

  • 2 of 5

This one bedroom is a gem in waiting. Location and view are perfect and the front desk staff are amazing. However there is so much junk, ie rabbit ear, old paint, pieces of carpet in the bedroom closet under a fold up bed that seems to have been untouched for years given the layers of dust than can be peeled off, every drawer in the credenza and shelves in the washing machine closet are full of decades old items leaving no storage for the tenants. We both got chest infections and my husband a skin allergy from which he is still recuperating. Two visits to the hospital and we were advised not to open the bedroom closet and to bag the books because of the dust spores they contained. The chemist gave us masks to wear while we were doing this.

Pity that this lovely spot is not better cared for. Clean it out, give it a coat of paint and update the 40 year old tub and faucets and voilà.... a gem

Apartment 7 Jupiter Complex – DO NOT RENT

  • 2 of 5

This review is purely for Apartment 7 of the Jupiter Complex. Apartment is owned by Mo Ibrahim of Swansea and is advertised on several websites. The apartment is not as advertised! Owner does not reply to complaints.

Apartment is dirty, shabby & poorly maintained. It is dangerous in parts.

Kitchen – a stove should have been in the apartment but has been removed by the owner to reduce his insurance costs, a microwave and a two ring hob remain to cook on. Two ring hob is grubby all of the numbers on dials have long gone. A frying pan & small saucepan are the only things available to cook with, 3 other pots are too large to fit on the rings. Microwave is a basic model only suitable for re-heating. None of the crockery matches, most is chipped. 6 ‘odd’ dinner plates, 1 tea plate, 2 dishes, 5 mugs, 6 ‘odd’ beer glasses & a plastic jug. No wine glasses. Door on the freezer compartment of fridge was missing. Kettle had not cleaned, the toaster looked as if it had caught fire. Washing machine & iron fairly new & worked fine. Ironing board was burned, had holes..

Seating area – table, chairs & coffee table old fashioned but OK. Settee in the advert was a bed settee but looked comfortable & had arms, actually in apartment is a hard,plastic covered sofa, no arms & no comfort for sitting. Other chair OK. Wall unit drawers full of rubbish, old batteries & spare bulbs. Cupboard had books but also had dirty linen shoved in it. Satellite TV, 6 English channels but the picture is not very clear.

Bedroom – the bedroom has the two smallest single beds I have ever had the misfortune to sleep in with ill fitting & very old linen. The proper beds which fitted the wall mounted headboards shown on the website had been replaced with ‘Z’ bed type frames, one was held together with duct tape’, the mattresses were old & had ripped covers.

Bathroom – FILTHY. Towels were to be provided, we were given 1 x bath towel and 1 x hand towel. Shower worked OK but soaked the bathroom as the wall fixing is broken & the shower sprays everywhere. I could not bring myself to use the bath! Toilet seat is heavily scratched & split so had to be cleaned and sanitised before we could use. Floor had not been cleaned.

Dangerous conditions of the apartment – air conditioning unit was working but the flaps were broken held open with clothes pegs, curtain over air conditioning unit, wiring is poor, had wires held together with black tape. One of the railings on balcony is broken.
