The apartment is situated to the rear of the complex. it is accessed by four flights of steps so would not be suitable for those with walking difficulties of wheelchairs. Views from the balcony look towards the mountains and a tennis centre. The main road is below but we didn't notice any traffic noise. The two balconies are west facing so there is sun all afternoon and evening.The apartment is airy and unfussy. There were plenty of towels for the bathroom. There is a large bedroom with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. There is an over head fan and aircon ( which we did not need to use) in the living room. Wifi was fitted when we were there. The TV has UK freeview channels. All you need, kettle cooker. toaster etc in in the kitchen area. There is also an iron and board and hairdryer. Simon was helpful throughout the booking process and responded quickly to our emails. We chose to collect the keys onsite, but Simon usually sends the keys to you. We used the pool area on two occasions. When we were there (May)it was quiet. The pool area is clean, but there is not a lot of space around it. There is a large supermarket across the road which is a two minutes walk away. Wine at 3 euros, cava at less than 2. Beer at 22 cents a can. Fresh bread and pastries. There is an excellent wine bar and coffee shop close by. The beach is about 5 minutes walk away. Along the front there are numerous bars and restaurants. Breakfast about 5 euros. Coffee and cake 3 euros. However the meals on the front are quite expensive. We found much better value and quality in the Arroyo area. This is about 10 minute walk towards the train station ( leave the apartment from rear , turn left and walk up hill). Its about a 30 minute walk to the marina. Very nice, had the best chinese buffet on the upper level and the worst, and most expensive glass of rioja at wine bar there. Trains to Fueingerola and Malaga cheap and regular. Both worth a visit The weather was great for the 7 days. I would recommend the apartment ( 1 bed) for a visit to Benalmadena.
