I travelled with my Mum and my 14 year old daughter and we found this apartment to be ideally located for a stay in Benalmadena.
The owner, Miguel, is very efficient in organising the rental of the apartment. Miguel answers all emails promptly and accurately. He made arrangements to meet us with the keys on both arrival and departure from the property and in fact, very kindly, provied us with a lift back to the airport. We flew to Malaga airport and took a taxi to the apartment which cost 25 Euros, making the apartment very accessible.
The apartment, itself, is lovely. It has been refurbished to a good standard. It is very clean. The two bedrooms are a good size. There is plenty of room in the living area/kitchen. The bathroom has a larger than average shower area. Outside there is a lovely terrace with a lockable gate onto the street which is a bonus for security and would be a good for families with younger children as they could roam inside and out in safety.
The street is quiet. The apartment faces the back of another apartment block, making the terrace quite private.
I would suggest taking a travel kettle and mugs/cups if you require hot drinks as these weren't supplied, however, there were pans, dishes, plates, cutlery, etc. Also, there is a new washing machine and a microwave as well as a cooker and fridge.
The WiFi was excellent, much to my teenage daughter's approval.
The location of the apartment is idealt. A stroll down the street brings you out at the sea front and the entrance to the beach. It is a delightful beach and I can recommend the beach bar Maracas, who hire sunbeds and umbrellas. There are many restaurants facing the beach too. There is a main avenue running parallel where there are lots of shops and a large supermarket, plus more restaurants.
We did not use the pool which is in the grounds this apartment is joined to, so I cannot comment on it.
I considered the rental price of the property to be good value for money. I will definitely return to this apartment in the future.
