“Will be going back !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Just returned from a trip to Benalmadena, and stayed at these apartments. Will definitely return to them.

Friendly staff on reception, gave us all the information we needed.

The apartment's kitchen had a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, coffeemaker and toaster. Complimentary dishwasher tablets, dishcloth and tea towel. Best equipped kitchen I've come across.

Although the guide on Pierre & Vacances said that there would be a extra charge for bathroom linen and bed making, everything was included and ready for us.

Apartment cleaned twice during our stay, again friendly staff.

WiFi was expensive 30 Euros for the week, but was available in our room.

Only used the bar once, that was enough.

Would recommend this apartment complex to anyone.

Room Tip: Pool, Sea view are good, Some have WiFi hotspots.

Really enjoyed our stay in the apartments. We requested a pool view and were please to get one, although we had to wait until after 2pm, which was not a problem, just put our cases in the luggage room. We found the staff on arrival very pleasant and helpful, and said they would ring us when the apartment was ready, but we said we would come back at 2pm.

The apartments a very well equipped, great kitchen, washing machine which is very much appreciated, although instructions would be helpful, as there are loads of programmes, so had to guess which one to use. Some dishwasher tablets provided along with tea towel and dish cloth etc. plenty of dishes, glasses and cutlery.

There is a good supermarket about 5 minutes walk away, and there are also lots of bars and restaurants nearby.

As with other reviewers have said, there is not a lot for children to do, so suits couples and older clients. We also managed to get BBC1, ITV, Film 4 and Sky News on the tv, as one other reviewer had posted you press the Tv/DVD button above the yellow button on the TV remote.

Apartments just a few minutes walk to the beach, and bus stops, (we got the 128 airport bus to and from the apartments, costs about 2euro 70 each one way, a lot cheaper than taxis.

We didn't eat in the bar attached to the apartments, so cannot comment on the food.

Air con is very welcome, Wifi is expensive, so didn't use, lots of bars have free wifi so used them instead.

We found the apartment fairly clean, towels and bed linens especially no problem with them. But the apartment itself needs a bit of more attention prior to arrival, dusting, cleaning the units, lots of dirty marks on them, and the shower enclosure round the bath needs a really good clean, or replaced.

We would stay again, as it is in a area we frequent a lot and would recommend them as well.

Room Tip: Pool view pleasant and we liked 2nd floor. Personal choice.

Travelled with my boyfriend and stayed here. We were on the 5th floor with great views over mountains. clean and tidy hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Room was excellent, great kitchen and balcony. The air con was fantasic best ive ever used and the shower was great. Rooms only cleaned every 4 days but this was enough as there was only 2 of us. Close to all amenities and supermarket just around the cornor. Highly reccommend this hotel.

The Pierre & Vacances standards were met. The building seemed by far the best one in the resort, looking grand, neat, modern. The staff was super nice and very polite. Very good service, they even provided much more than we expected: towels, bed linen (beds were made for us and changed once in the week), tv, cleaning products, bathroom toiletries etc.
The resort itself was mostly retired people, and young families. So the place was quiet enough and relaxing. The pool side café/bar on the other hand serves very bad quality food (all frozen and fried) and ready made pre-mixed drinks. The service is poor, the staff unfriendly and unprofessional. But these standards seemed the same all over the resort's restaurants.
The residence is 2 minutes away from the beach and a great supermarket.
If I go back I would definitely stay there again.

We ordered through On The Beach and on arrival we received lot's of information regarding the hotel, surrounding area, attractions and public transport. They also printed a fax about our return transfer 4 days before we left. The hotel itself is beautiful and looks exactly like the photos. Our room was clean, spacious and modern. The pool is an infinity pool and really clean. Our room was cleaned every 4 days (as was said).
The hotel is situated less than a 5min walk from the beach and lot's of restaurants/cafes. We travelled to the Marina a couple of nights as there is more entertainment and bars there. A taxi is 7euro or it is a 20/30min walk along the beach front.

Room Tip: We got a sea-view room free as we went in September.

Just returned from a week here at pierre vacances....on arrival check in was smooth room was ready....didn't get a pool view but I was glad when I seen the view over the mountains.....but the noise was serious bad at night time so maybe a pool view would b better for that reason....apartment great had a fab equipped kitchen everything you need....would have liked the apartment cleaned a bit more only once during stay...pool area great too no getting up early to reserve sun beds and there was always lots to choose from....the service at pool bar wasn't great they see you standing there but takes ages for them to serve you...
Wouldn't be a place for kids as there's nothing for them to do its a great base but if you want evening entertainment this wouldn't be the place it's handy for all the bars and restaurants.....
Overall would return if I got a good deal but for entertainment I'd go else where....but I wouldn't stroke it off my list

Great time in these apartments all of the staff were friendly and would offer advise if required we booked extra rooms for 2 weeks time from the initial stay and they were extremely accommodating with ensuring that we got the value for money by giving the rooms to us at the exact same cost as some of the travel website were charging on the day..

Rooms Spotless, modern with everything new in the kitchen area you would not need to ask for any extras in your room..

Great Stay and defo stay again as we booked another 4 apartments before we even checked out!

Room Tip: I could not give a tip as I could not fault in anything in the Rooms
