Apartments were clean and tidy, having all the necessities for self catering. Situatated on a hill and a steep climb from the beach. Close to bars and restaurants, all very reasonably priced. Can be noisy at night but usually finished up around 12.30. Balcony quite small. Pool is in gated area where you have to check in every day. Pool area kept clean but sunbeds are hired early so sometimes not enough if wanting one in afternoon, although large surrounding grass area. Reasonably priced holiday, no luxuries but fine for a week in the sun.
We booked two weeks at 628 Jupiter from August 27th to Sept 10th having stayed at various other apartments locally over a number of years. Anne and Alexanda were very helpful during the booking process and promptly responded to a few queries we had prior to making the booking. The studio apartment was immaculate and exactly what we'd hoped for. Extremely comfortable beds, adequate kitchen and bathroom facilities and a fantastic panoramic view from the balcony of the sea , the suburb of Arroyo and the mountains - and overlooking the wonderful swimming pool below..628 is on the top floor so no noise from above..!! Jupiter is perfectly situated halfway between the seafront (promenade, restaurants, marina) and Arroyo centre - with a great choice of restaurants.and where the train station is located. You can get a cheap air conditioned train ride to Malaga one way or Fuengirola the other... You can also take the cable car up to the falconry show from Arroyo (best in the evening during the summer months). Bonanza Square is located close to Jupiter which has many different restaurants and bars to choose from as well as a nice supermarket. 628 Jupiter is highly recommended if you are looking for two person accommodation in the Benalmadena/Arroyo area.. Thanks Anne & Alexanda....
firstly, as self-catering goes, nothing was lacking. very clean on arrival. Anne & Alexander were prompt to respond if any need arose, which was rare..
only four stars as the lounge furniture is very dated and i could not use due to extreme allergy to fabrics. i am not a TV person either but only a few english channels and one german sports on small portable crt telly. (Internet in apartment but PAYG or 40eu for a month 24/7). i ended up spending that for 1-4 hrs per day ad-hoc.
many thanks to A&A.
