“Fantasic location”
Reviewed December 13, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Came to this lovely apartment for a three week stay. We had a brilliant time...NO RAIN at all. The apartment was very clean, it had everything we needed. The best thing was the amazing balcolny , morning until evening sun. The location couldn`t have been better. It was close to the rather lovely Paloma park, a little bit further and your at the beach. turn in the other direction and your in the town, with lots of great shops. Its so easy to get a bus or a train ride here. The Minerva apartments, in all public areas where kept in a really clean and well maintained state. I know I can be a bit fussy but this apartment ...really has everything for a happy memorable holiday x
Our relaxing holiday started with booking this apartment with Paula.

“Great home-from-home Apt and location”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Our first visit to this apt in Minerva and also to Benalmadena, but after scouring lots of ads, this is really a gem of a find! The apartment was not only spotless, but contained everything you might need to feel right at home in particular with a fully-equipped kitchen to satisfy those who wish to self-cater (with lots of foodie shops on your doorstep) or within a few minutes of a multitude of eateries (some just across the road) catering for all tastes and prices such as a 3-course menu-of-the-day with coffee for around €9. The icing though is the corner location on the 4th floor looking both south (over the town out to the Med) and westwards across the mountains, you are in glorious sunshine from sunrise to sunset. With numerous sites on the doorstep, if you just wanted to chill, I can't think of a better location than to spend the day just sitting on the verandah with a bottle (or two) of wine naturally with a pile of nuts and nibbles and just watch the scene - the town below - ships and big cruise liners going by, then the glorious sunset over the mountains with the red and orange sky as brilliant as the Spanish flag. We didn't want to come home. I definitely think we will be returning to this apartment.
And most of the attractions are within a few minutes walk. Incredible!
For attractions further away, there is an excellent bus system costing only a couple of Euros, and when flying in via Malaga, don't forget a train runs from Malaga along the Costa stopping at the airport and then 25 mins onto Arroyo station, about 10 mins walk from Minerva. And it only costs €1.95 each. Or from Arroyo to Malaga only €2.60
When you arrive, check out the tourist office fist near the Marina where you can pick up many vouchers for discounts at various locations including Tivoli World, the cable car (a definite MUST-GO), and the various sea-life parks, to name just a few.
But whatever your specialty, I would thoroughly recommend Paula and Keith's apartment in Minerva. Worth every penny. A lovely apartment in a perfect location for all travelers, families or couples.

Just returned from our stay here, 2nd time in this apartment for me but 1st time for my husband. We will definitely book again as the apartment is clean, well equipped, peaceful, has fantastic views, lovely garden and great swimming pools. A real winner.

Since my very first interaction with Paula I was very confident in booking the appartment. Everything was so well organised on arrival with even some welcome food etc for us. Could not fault the appartment, exactly what we had hoped for. Great location, near to everything - shops, beach & restaurants. Will definitely go back.
