Hercules Stylish Apartment
from £15 /night help
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Stylish Apartment in the Hercules block on the Gamonal, close to both Arroyo (the Spanish area) and Bonanza (the British area). Just 5 minutes walk to the lovely Paloma park, then a further 5 minutes down to the sea.
Situated in the largest and best gardens in Benalmadena (in my opinion) - with lots of lawn and trees there's always a quiet spot to find. There are 2 large swimming pools (25m) & kiddies pools and they have a life guard in attendance. In the garden there is also a cafe bar offering a variety of drinks and meals for a leisurely lunch before it's back to the sun-beds! A sun-bed daily hire charge is payable - or you can find your own spot in the gardens.
The apartment is almost home from home (well I chose the decoration and furniture) with a bed settee in the living area, along with further pull out single bed, large TV, table and chairs and plenty of storage (and selection of books for you to choose).
Balcony with table and chairs overlooking side street - just sit and watch the world go by whilst enjoying your drink. With views of the mountains (and you can see the sea if you look to your left!)
Compact kitchen - with all the essentials you'd expect: kettle, toaster, microwave, calor gas hob, plenty of crockery and cutlery.
Lovely bathroom with bath and shower (perfect for washing sandy feet).
Large double bedroom (amazingly comfortable mattress) with lots of wardrobe space (and hangers) and drawer units.
Deck chairs, inflatables for the pool and the essential bucket and spade for you to use are in the apartment
There is 24hr reception in the Block (most speak very good English) and can arrange local taxi's for a few cents.

The Andalucia region
The Costa Del Sol is famous for it's beautiful beaches and all year sunny climate. I've been in the sea each and every month of the year - yes it can be chilly - but not like the North sea. During the winter months the weather is more unpredictable (and yes it can rain) but if the sun is out you can feel it and if you're somewhere sheltered then shorts and T shirts are enough for us Brits!
If you fancy an excursion further afield - try Gibraltar or Granada - I even did a day trip to Morocco and managed to fit in a camel ride.
The apartment is only 15 mins down to the wonderful beaches (walk down through the park and see how many fluffy rabbits you can see). The Marina is one of the best on the coast if you like a spot of luxury yacht spotting and whilst there take a boat trip out to see dolphins.
There is still a wonderful mix of original Spanish areas but with lots of British places too - so you really can find what you like and all within walking distance.
Local buses can take you to the wonderful typical villages of Benalmadena Pueblo or Mijas - both lovely white washed villages.

Pleased that the apartment met your needs and thanks for the information about the buses. If a bus isn't for you and the walk back is either too much or too hot, then a taxi will usually cost around 5 euros.

Really pleased that you enjoyed your holiday. Regarding the cost of the sunbeds around the pool, they need to charge to cover the cost of the lifeguards which unfortunately isn't covered within the service charge for the apartment block. There are plenty of other lawned areas around the pools where you can take your own chairs / towels for free.

"A lovely break in a centrally located apartment"
What a treat to walk into a spotless apartment that is extremely well equipped for all eventualities and having a local contact in case of any problems is comforting. The apartments are set in lovely gardens which will be even more beautiful in the summer months when the swimming pools are open. The location means you can walk to the parks, restaurants and local facilities even with a 2 year old! The bus stops practically right outside the door and the train station is a 10 minute walk away. The apartments have a very helpful reception and the other residents were very friendly, we would definitely recommend the apartment.
Thanks to my Manager, Debs, who keeps the apartment to a high standard and thank you for your comments after your holiday. It is lovely to hear that the apartment met your needs, but also that the gardens, and local area didn't disappoint either. Deb
