The apartment block is in a great spot on the complex - located on the ground level (some of the blocks are set far back and fairly high up) and the actual apartment is on the ground level too - although the ground level is just slightly elevated. The apartment block is very attractive and is accessed by steps or a ramp for dragging suitcases. There is a small entrance hall with the two bedrooms located off this area. The bathroom is also here. The large open plan lounge with kitchen is spacious and bright with doors directly onto the large terrace. The terrace has a table and chairs for dinning and a sofa to relax on. There is also a light on the terrace which makes outside dinning easy.

The Costa del Sol region
The sunshine coast of Spain - with summers hot and sunny, and winters mild and bright with blue skies and sunshine; it is no surprise to know that the Costa del Sol experiences the best temperatures of all the Costa's and is just across the water from Africa in the very south of Spain.
The Coast itself is a playground full of fun things to do, plenty of beaches, water parks and activities for the kids, boundless amounts of culture and history. There are stylish marinas, great restaurants, fantastic shopping and excellent nightlife. The choice between action and relaxation is yours. Is it any wonder that this coast really does have something to suit every one?
Travelling along the coast is easy with an excellent network of buses and a state-of- the-art-train from Malaga airport along the coast as far as Fuengirola. If you prefer car hire then this is competitive and low cost alternatively there are plenty of excursions – with countless places to visit.
Inland are the pretty white Andalucian villages including the hill top town of Mijas; further afield but easily accessible are the beautiful cities of Seville and Granada. If it is glamour you're after, Puerto Banus and Marbella will not disappoint and the marina at Benalmandena is a must for its sophistication – With its many restaurants, bars and nightclubs . With golf courses in abundance, countless entertainment parks and fun things for the kids to do you really can find something to please everyone.
The coast is serviced by Malaga airport which has many regular flights from most, if not all, regional airports and the journey time is just over 2.30 hours – making the coast a very accessible and popular choice for many.
The resort of Benalmadena is a favourite of many; from families looking for a fun packed week for the kids, to retired guests who enjoy the lovely walks along the promenade, warm weather and sunshine during the winter months to the younger generation who love the good nightlife.
A twenty minute tax ride or train journey from Malaga airport takes you to the resort.
Day time can be spent relaxing on a sunbed on the beach, hiring a bike to ride around the beautiful park, browsing the local market or taking the cable car into the mountains to enjoy the stunning views of the Costa del Sol. As the sunsets – the resort offers a whole choice of things to do from relaxing over dinner in the gorgeous white washed marina or in one of the pretty fish restaurants along the beach walkway, riding the roller coasters with the kids at Tivolli World or perhaps playing a round of mini golf. For the night owls there is a whole load of nightclubs and bars. With the amazing selection of places to eat and drink, this place suits all budgets and choices. And all is accessible by foot; alternatively there are plenty of buses and taxis available.
If its shopping you seek then the Spanish town of Arroya De La Miel is approximately a twenty minute walk from the beach front with its pretty pavement cafes and tapas bars it is a great place to relax and soak up the atmosphere. Alternatively a bus ride to Torromolinos will delight with its vast selection of shoe shops. Travelling further afield is easy and worthwhile to visit the white villages of Andalucia, or a day trip to Granada or even a round of golf, on one of the countless golf courses along this coast. With its all year round climate it means that the resort doesn't close down in winters therefore making it a perfect winter destination too. This excellent resort really does have it all, that a two week break really doesn't do it justice - which is probably why so many people return or that it is very popular with the long stay winter guests.
