The Costa del Sol region
The Costa del Sol is renowned for the fantastic climate. It's very unusual not to be able to get out and about because of weather conditions. Being on the beach the ever changing sea is a joy to look at. The main bus route runs close by and buses are available to places like Mijas, Torremolinos and Malaga. Look at web sites of the local area to get as much information as you want.
If you are familiar with Benalmadena you will appreciate how popular the Marina area is. Plenty of things to do during the day, apart from the beach. Take a boat trip from the Marina, rent a jet ski, take a ride on the tourist train. Visit Sealife and experience sharks and sting rays up close. The Exhibition centre is just behind the apartment and nearly always has something interesting to look at and the entrance is normally free. At night time the port area and 24 hour square are alive with young and old alike. Eating, drinking, listening to music and just soaking up the atmosphere of Spanish night life. If you prefer a quieter drink or meal try the attractive Plaza Olè which is behind the apartment, you will experience a friendly welcome from Jackie & Malcolm in Buddies. They are neighbours as well so can advise you about the area.

"Great Location and Lovely Owners"
We spent 6 weeks here in February and March
Before arriving in Spain communiction with the owners was good. On arrival they turned out to be really nice and helpful; a great start. A big bonus was that they had installed a new Sony TV and broadband
The apartment is accessed through an attractive courtyard and loced gates mean that it is very secure. Inside it was clean and well maintained with everything you need. The only minor drawback is that the kitchen only has a two burner hob, which could be restrictive for a bigger family. The living room would be slightly cramped for a bigger family but was fine for 3 or 4 adults. Bedrooms were fine with comfortable beds. The bathroom was excellent with plenty hot water. My hard to pleease wife had no complaints with the washing machine. The fridge was roomy with a reasonable sized freezer compartment.
The apartment is on the end of the block with windows in the gable. This gives plenty of light to all rooms unlike the other apartments in the block. Windows have shutters that would be a bonus in hot weather. A major bonus is the large veranda that is a sun trap that has lovely views over over the beach to the marina. While it is located above shops and restaurants, it is remarkably quiet even at busy times.
We chose the period with the worst weather in years with a lot of rain. Despite this, in February and March we only had an oil-filled radiator on for about 5 hours in 6 weeks.
What sets this apartment apart is its location. It is an easy stroll to shops, bars and restaurants. The nearby Supercor supermarket is open 24 hours a day and has a good selection of UK papers. The tourist office and bus booking kiosk is a 3-5 min stroll. The Bono ticket is well worth buying if you intend to do more than a couple of trips. It costs about 2 euros and reduces fares by about 70c to 1 euro for most trips. It covers more than one adult and speeds up boarding the bus. The lady in the kiosk is very helpful too.
If you are over 60 and likely to use the train, buy a "Targeta D'Or" pass. This costs around 6 euros and gives a discount of around 40%, including the local line. all that you have to do is take your passport to a staffed station and you'll get one. It's valid for a year. We saved 16 euros each on a trip to Seville.
All in all, this is a great wee apartment with helpful owners and a great location. You can't as for more

"location, location, location and location"
Entrance to the front, shared courtyard was secure and very modern and welcoming (new tiles and nice plants etc) with locked gate; nice first impressions.
The apartment was plenty large enough for us 4 adults lovely bathroom, aircon small fee(1Euro 3hrs) in bedrooms and a good balcony with plenty of furniture and great views & wi-fi from the nearby restaurants (ask for password when you buy a drink).No long walk to contend with to visit beach, in fact I could see from balcony which sunbeds wife picked! Shop below apt sold newsapers and fags if you like those sort of things, and plenty of restaurants within yards. No late noise and supermarkets, cashpoint, taxi rank and internet cafe at entrance to the Plaza. Oh yes the marina is a stones throw and seen from balcony.
We would definitely return to this apart if we go back to Benalmadena.
