The Andalucia region
Costa Del Sol benefits from a good climate all year round, one of the things that makes it so popular with tourists year after year.
The apartment is within easy reach of Malaga and Mijas and Fuengirola, although a car is essential to make the best of this area. You can get a train from Benalmadna station to Malaga or Fuengirola, or a bus from the main road to Mijas or into Benalmadena Costa. There is also a local bus which picks up across the road from the gates to the complex. This bus has many stops including the nearest supermarket and Tivoli World and benalmadna pheblo which is a small village in land with views of the sea and the surrounding area . It will also take you to the beach The bus goes once an hour and a timetable can be found in the imformation pack in the apartment.
A major attraction of the area is Tivoli World, with its theme park and cable car. The cable car takes you to the highest point in Malaga Province, and you can visit the wild birds and wild horse displays while you are there.
There is also a market on Fridays and Sunday at Tivoli world within walking distance (a walk of about 20 minutes) all downhill with bar on the way . The nearest golf course is a 18 hole course which is situated on phase 2 of Arnel golf which is across the road from the complex there is also a new club house which has just openned [june 2012] called Bill Bill Golf which has a bar and restaurant and a gym and golf clubs can be hired a round of golf which is around 12 euros ,there is also a 9 hole golf course situated on the main road with its own bar and restaurant .If you like walking there is a nice walk up to Benalmadna Pheblo which is about a mile on the way you pass the bullring which also has its own bar.
In Benalmadena Costa there is the sea life centre and also the marina and the beach. There is a local bus which runs into Benlmadena Costa which picks up outsde the gates to the complex. If you like to see all kinds of birds and other animals such has hens ,peacocks,rabbits running free you can go to La Paloma Park in Benalmadena Costa - be sure to take your camera!

"Fantastic apartment, but you will need a car."
My family and I stayed here for 8 nights, we found the apartment very roomy, and the kitchen well equipped for our needs if we decided to eat in. Having two showers was a bonus, it made getting ready … More
Thank you for your review the point about the pool is something i must put in my advert in may and june 0ne of the two pools are open with a life guard,it is done on a week by week basic eg one week the top pool is open and the next the bottom pool is open .
During july and august both pools are open with life guards all the time .
the point about neading a car is a matter for traveller but i must say we have owned the property for 6 years and never hired a car yet ,the bus service is very good and there is shops and bar quite near within walking distance .

"Lovely apartment, gated and safe for young children but hilly and no close ammenities"
The apartment was spacious and more than adequate for the four of us; air conditioning was nice when it became too hot; the kitchen ideal with plenty of equipment plus the bonus of a dishwasher; also choice of balconies on the east and west sides. The grounds and pool adjacent to apartment were excellent which is where we spent most of our time. With the complex being on a hill there is a 20 min walk to the nearest supermarket Mercadona (up to main road then down hill opposite bus stop to Arroya) or continue down the hill to the next roundabout for Lidl, both have a good selection and reasonably priced. As you can imagine a lot of walking up and down hills, thank goodness for the shopping trolley provided in apartment. If you want the beach it is a long walk down hill but only the fittest would attempt to walk back!
As we would rather not hire a car we made use of the public transport, which involved taking a train from the airport to Arroyo de la Miel (train fare 1.85 Euro each including children over 2 years) and then a bus from outside the station (1.40 Euro each), the 103 to Xanit hospital (stops outside Arenal Golf) or the 112, 121, 126 to A&E hospital on main road, then either walk down through both hospital car parks depending on luggage (we always travel with cabin bags only) failing this a short taxi ride.
The negatives are: isolated so a lot of walking up and down hills, a trip to the Mercadona will take an hour with no shade in the day (Mercadona closes on Sundays, Lidl stays open), no other amenities at close range i.e. cafes, shops, places of interest for an evening stroll (dog 'poo' on pavements, kiddies/public park area even though there were notices 'no dogs' and the waste land next to 103 bus stop must be the local dog loo, not pleasant).
i wish to respond to this review in the following terms ,1 the reviewer says it take a hour to the nearest supermarket that is incorrect it takes a max of 30 mins [15 mins each way pathway though the zanit hospital]
2 the nearest cafe /rest is in the zanit hospital and it is open to the public also there is a bar and rest at bil bil golf which is less than 15 mins away.
3 the comment about the playground is misleading because it does not belong to the complex ,so therefore we have no control about the state of it
4 the comment about the dog mess on the land by the bus stop also is misleading because once again it is something which is nothing to do with our apartment and should not be within this review ,this land belongs to the developers of the the other phases and not within the control of the management of arenel golf phase one.
these things should be removed from this review as they are misleading as my comments 3 and 4 explain .
