The Andalucia region
Once Spain´s poorest region, Andalucia - and specifically the provinces of Malaga, Granada and Seville - is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, thanks to its sandy beaches, beautiful countryside, spectacular mountain ranges, fabulous monuments and high-spirited people who live life to the full and are well known for their exuberance, warmth and hospitality.
Andalucia is also home of flamenco and bullfighting, which can be best enjoyed at the region´s countless ferias and romerias.
But perhaps the most unique feature of this enchanting region are the remnants of its Moorish past. The Moors were a mixture of Berbers and Arabs who crossed into Spain from North Africa by the Straits of Gibraltar and occupied the peninsula - which they called al Andalus - for more than seven centuries, dating from 710 when they first landed in Tarifa. Within a mere four years they had virtually conquered the entire country, although they soon withdrew to the southern part of the peninsula, where they established, in the towns of Cordoba, Seville and Granada, one of the most sophisticated civilisations of the Middle Ages. Each of these Andalucian capitals boasts spectacular remains of their monuments, the most unforgettable of which is, undoubtedly, Granada's Alhambra palace.
Andalucia has 500 miles of coastline and of which 70% are sandy beaches. The Mediterranean seaboard is graced by the Costa de Almeria, Costa Tropical and the glamorous, cosmopolitan Costa del Sol, while the Costa de la Luz lies along the Atlantic shore to the west of Gibraltar.
As well as Andalucia´s fascinating cities and dazzling shores, the region is sprinkled with tiny unspoiled villages and whitewashed towns - the famous pueblos blancos - which tourists often overlook, even though they are of easy access, such as Casares, Gaucin and Frigilana.
Andalucia, then, is a region of startling contrasts and great charm. Yet, this mysterious corner of Europe is easy to reach, with hundreds of charter flights arriving each week at Malaga´s Pablo Picasso International Airport.
Enjoying fantastic weather, an amazing setting and beautiful restaurants, bars and cafes. Benalmadena is well positioned to reach Granada, Seville, Cordoba and Ronda within a few hours drive. The city of Malaga is beautiful with its historical old town and very glamorous Calle Larios with trendy shops and boutiques also the Picasso Musuem. The picturesque Mountain Village of Mijas with its famous donkey taxis is just 15 minutes drive. You can also easily visit the elegant suburbs of Puerto Banus and Marbella and travel further on to Gibraltar. You can easily visit Granada, Seville, Cordoba and Ronda within a few hours drive.
Benalmadena Costa has hundred of bars, cafe´s and restaurants. There are many international restaurants at the Marina. There is a wide selection of shops and Tivoli World, the children's theme park is situated in Arroyo. Fuengirola Zoo is nearby and the marine wildlife park. Parque Palomo with its unusual birds and beautiful lake is just a stroll from the apartment.

From entering through the garden gate this accommodation has the wow factor.
Spotlessly clean, efficient air conditioning in three rooms, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, spacious lounge with all entertainment equipment and comfy sofa, and then the terrace, Sun all day, lovely mountain views, 4 sunloungers, barbeque, dining table, then of course the hot tub. Everything required for a totally relaxing holiday, easy access from airport and central for all resort amenities.
Booking was very straightforward with guidance from Linda who was also available with tips and advice.
Can't wait to return.
We are happy you enjoyed the apartment and your holiday. We would be happy to welcome you back again.

"Brilliant Property, Close to Beach & Harbour"
I travelled to Benalmadena with My Wife and 3 children (2 Boys- 7&5 and a 21 month year old baby). I researched long and hard to find just the right accommodation, location & amenities etc. This property definitely delivered and some.
Great service, the owners were very helpful and provided a prompt, secure and easy process. The Apartment is walking distance from the wonderful Seafront & harbour and all the shops/bars/amenities. There is WIFI (very strong signal) TV with DVD (The DVD player also has USB stick option- which We find great for taking out own movies). The apartment is very spacious and feels like a "home from home", everything You would and need for your holiday. The complex is very secure; and finally the Hot-Tub on the terrace, this just made it for us. We used in the morning and evening- really good Hot-Tub, deep & big with lots of Jets and lights. Would definitely go back.
Thank you very much for your lovely comments. We certainly hope to see you all again.

We stayed in Casa Isla De Benalmadena for 1 week in September and loved every minute. We were greeted by the caretaker and the apartment was spotless. There were ample towels and bed linen. Everything we could have needed during our stay was at hand from kitchen utensils to hairdryer.
the hot tub was fabulous, we kept it set at 38 degrees which was perfect all through the day. we had the swimming pool to ourselves all week though the water was quite cold! At the bottom of the main road, which was very close, there was 2 bus stops which serviced the entire coast. The bus into Torremolinos was about 2 euros. buses were efficient, clean and on time. We spent a lot of out time in Arroyo which was close by and can highly recommend "The Moose Trap" A Canadian restaurant. A day trip to Mijas is a must, again we travelled by bus from the bottom of the road.
I would not hesitate in recommending this apartment and will definitely be returning next year. So much to see and do yet so relaxing on the large terrace. The views from the terrace up to the mountains were breath taking.
Only small problem - we couldnt find any English channels on the TV.
We have stayed in many apartments in the Benalmadena/Arroyo de la Miel area and this was by far the best yet.
Many thanks. We hope to see you again in the future

"Excellent Find, Excellent Location - Superb Penthouse!!"
After reading the other reviews for this property, we booked thinking it would be nice, but not as good as everyone made it out to be. When we arrived the property exceeded our expectations - it was spotless clean and very well presented. The description of the location, layout, facilities etc. was all 100% accurate. There was air conditioning in the living room area and in each of the bedrooms, which was a bonus (and not sure if 3 air conditioning systems were mentioned on the description).
You could instantly tell that the property was well maintained and looked after, and the care-taker was very helpful and thoroughly explained all facilities of the complex and apartment. We also met the owner of the property, as they previous holiday makers had broken the air-conditioning in the living room area, and the owner came out on the first day, with workmen and fixed it. He was extremely helpful, kind and accommodating to us, as was the next door neighbour.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone in particular friends and relatives.
The balcony and apartment in general was a lot bigger than we expected, and was in an excellent location (just off the main road and less than 5 min walk to beach, and less than 10 min walk to marina - beside hotel Triton), which was excellent as there was no night time noise.
We were a group of 2 young married couples, and found the area really nice, with lots of activities, from day trips to Marbella, Puerto banus, waterparks, marina, boat trips, cable cars, theme parks, nightlife etc. We would however recommend travelling to airport, fuengeroira, torremolinos etc. by train, as it is air-conditioned, quicker and much cheaper than the bus. There is a bus stop and a taxi rank at the bottom of the road which was really handy. We normally took a taxi to the train station (5 min drive away from apartment, as it was an uphill walk) but taxi only cost 5euro between the four of us.
I do not have anything negative to say about the property except there were no sun loungers by the communal pool (you could lay on the grass on a towel instead), this did not really bother us as we spent most of our time in the hot tub, and we had 2 sun loungers on the balcony. Also some people may be put off as the property is a penthouse and on the top floor (5th floor) of the building, but there is a fully accessible lift at the entrance, or stairs if you prefer, so this should not deter you from booking this fabulous property.
