The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol caters for young and old alike, offering a variety of attractions. The coast boasts one of the highest concentrations of world class golf courses, hence often being dubbed " The Costa del Golf"
For families there are theme parks, including water parks, go-karting, safari parks and many beautiful parks and gardens. For the younger visitors the main areas are Benalmadena Puerto Marina, 24 hour square, and slightly further afield anTorremolinos, Fuengirola and even into Marbella and Puerto Banus.
The Costa and the Malaga province are home to some of the finest Flamenco shows, bullfighting and tapas restaurants.
Links between Granada, Seville and Cordoba are easily accessible for those wishing to venture further inland. The Malaga area is surrounded by old towns, beautiful countryside, olive groves and is saturated in sunshine 300 plus days of the year .
The mountains of Sierra Nevada are 1 1/2 hours drive away where you can enjoy both skiing and sunshine between November to April , alternatively weekly coach trips to Gibraltar are available locally for 10€
Arroyo De La Miel
The old traditional Andalusian villages of Benalmadena and Mijas are both only a short drive or take the circular bus to enjoy the cobbled streets, donkey rides and many bars and restaurants. The Colomares Castle is also worth a visit, ashort walk of the bus route. Fuengirola Zoo is a short train or bus ride along with 2 waterparks and a crocodile park in Torremolinos.
Selwo Aventura Park is a natural park unique in Europe where animals of the 5 continents co-exist in semi wild conditions -definitely worth a visit but don't forget your sun hat and cream. Car hore would be necessary to reach this destination
There is also the choice of Selwo marina which is devoted to the exotic creatures of South America or Sea Life Centre down in the Marina which takes you on a voyage of discovery from shrimps and starfish, stingrays and sharks, where they nurse sick and injured creatures and return them fit and healthy to the sea.
Friday morning is the main market day in Arroyo and is situated close to the amusement park Tivoli World, and the Teleferico which takes you by cable car to the summit of Monte Calamorro where on a clear day you have the most impressing views over to the coast of Africa.
The Paloma Park with its lake, roaming wildlife including rabbits, ducks and chickens, cacti garden, children's play areas, birds of prey and several cafes to sit relax and take in the beautiful scenery is amongst one of my favourite places to spend a few hours relaxing.
A short train ride away is the Parque Bateria with a fantastic children's play area and rowing boats at only 1euro per hour.
Stroll around the award winning Puerto Marina, or take the small train for a guided tour. The architectural style of the buildings is fantastic. Various boat trips are available to Fuengirola or to see the dolphins. Dream your way past the boats moored in the harbour, browse the shops or sit and relax in one of the many bars or restaurants.
You will never be bored or at a loose end in this activity packed destination, Arroyo even has its own indoor swimming pool and Ice Skating Rink.

"A very comfortable and homely appartment"
A very clean apartment in an ideal location, close to bars, shops and a pleasant walk to the Harbor and beach. The garden and pool area was great for the days we didn't feel like doing much! Louis and Deb were really helpful, they gave great advice on some lovely restaurants! A must is a day at the harbor, and venture out to find some really lovely Tapas bars. Great holiday, can't wait to re book.

"GREAT PLACE TO STAY -"
The apartment was spacious and clean , everything you needed was there provided for you.
No problems with anything,
The gardens were lovely and well kept near the pool area;
The only down side we found was the cost to sit near the pool , 4euors per per, per day for the beds. So we just sat round the gardens with the chairs provided by the owners of the apartment which was a good idea.
The apartments are within walking distance of some great pubs which all served great food. The chinese for 5euors was great for 3 course meal.
Will definately return .

"It covers everything you need for a holiday in Benalmadena"
I found the apartment clean and tidy and it has a lovely homely feel to it. The location is central so is ideal whether you want the beach, shops, bars or restaurants etc.
Reception are very helpful if you're trying to get some where or will order a taxi for you.
The gardens and pool area is probably the best in Benalmadena - it really is picturesque and if you sit having a drink at the pool bar overlooking the park and sea it's quite amazing.
The apartment manager was very friendly and helpful.
