Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Arrived early but were able to access the property just after 1pm. Jeff was there to meet us and was very helpful and made us feel very welcome and explained all that we needed to know about the apartment. He set up the wi-fi which was a real godsend.

The apartment was clean and had everything we need. Didn't watch much tv but it was available. Great shower which is very important.

Located just a 5 min walk from Bonanza square and very close to the Arroya where we spent a fair bit of time. Bus stops are nearby and the railway station at the Arroya is about 10 minutes walk.

Would recommend to couples looking for a good base if staying in the area.

Property is ok and clean. In internet show balcony but we don't have balcony.

  • Review Submitted: 08-Jul-2017
  • Date of Stay: June 2017

Owner's Response: Thank you for your complimentary remarks. The former balcony area has been very successfully enclosed into this lovely studio, to enlarge the living area and for this reason we do not mention a balcony, either in the apartment description, or in the list of facilities available in the apartment. However, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our ideally located apartment with its lovely pool and kiosk, attractive gardens and onsite parking; close to all amenities, and only a short train ride from Malaga International Airport. Perfect for either a long or a short stay and very affordable too !

Great apartment would recommend

  • 4 of 5

Just got back from a fantastic stay in the apartment. It is what is says it is, not huge or 5 star but has all the comforts of home and in such a fantastic spot. The area is wonderful, so much to do, we never got round to doing half of it!! The train is a must from the airport, easy to get on and only cost €2.05 per person each way. Also only a 10 minute walk to the apartment. There is a hill to the beach however going down is fine, coming back up was fine for us but could be a challenge if walking isn't your 'thing'. Didn't have any issues whilst there, many supermarkets within a 5 minute radius and everywhere we looked there was somewhere to eat. If we had any feedback it would have been to know the opening times of the pool before going. In may and October it is only open 1130am-430pm due to the hire of a lifeguard. Although this has no bearing on the owner or the apartment, we, along with many got caught out and disappointed on our first day. Also with having to pay for sun beds each day, it would be great if there were the reclining chairs in the apartment to use by the pool. The view from the apartment is lovely, mountain and sea, my husband especially enjoyed watching the football. Looking forward to returning to explore the area further.

Car: not necessary


The fine sandy Benalmadena beach is about 12 minutes walk away. Here you will find lots of attractions and watersports.

The Promenade is long, wide & flat with frequent part shaded resting places so that you can sit and admire the lovely sea & beach views.

There are many cafe/restaurants built literally on the beach and the Promenade.

The beautiful new Marina offers lots of many interesting boat trips, fashionable boutiques, restaurants and places of interest.


Fly to Malaga airport - Benalmadena is just (10 miles) / 15 km from the airport.

A cheap transfer:-

Train (inside the airport): fare: about £2 per person / journey time: about 15 minutes (lovely scenic route) / frequency: every 20 minutes / your apartment is 5-7 minutes' walk from the train station or immediately outside the station a taxi will drive you to your apartment for about euros 5.

Taxi: about £25-28 each way/about 10 minutes.

Key pick up at the 24 hour reception.

Benalmadena has a very impressive new Marina development offering boat trips, restaurants, colourful shops and boutiques. If you fancy diving beneath the sea without getting wet there is the Sea Life Centre and if you would also like to see a dolphin show then the Selwo Marina is a must.

Fuengirola-easily accessible by local bus or train: there are many local attractions, such as a giant water park and a renowned zoo. In the Marina there is a "World of Watersports" available including parasailing, scuba diving, jet skiing and much more. Also nearby is the Miramar shopping centre which is a large modern covered shopping complex with cinemas (many films in English) and cafes.
