I have stayed at Benalmádena quite a few time & this apartment was the most expensive & most disappointing one have booked . It was for a girls trip & we all agreed the photos looked lovely , so we didn’t mind paying a bit extra.
On arrival we found the key collection area was actually another 15 min walk uphill into the old town !
The whole complex was very cramped & smaller than the photos showed. The entrance to the apartment looked neglected with dead plants & grubby paintwork . The kitchen / living area in the apartment were also very small as was the balcony area. The only air con was in one bedroom, the rest of the apartment has ceiling fans which were ineffective for the heat.
The apartment was clean but was finished to a poor standard.
On a positive note it did have a very well equip kitchen area, comfy big beds & a good size bathroom.
The pool area was locked at night & people were queuing on a morning to put towels on the sun beds. We did not spend any time around the pool as it was to crowded & small.
I will be returning to Benalmádena in September but unfortunately would not want to stay at this apartment or complex again .
