Location description from owner

The Costa del Sol region

Costa Del Sol is also know as Costa Del Golf and with excellent championship golf courses and over 320 days of sunshine every year you can see why. But the region has much more to offer than just golf. The golden beaches extend all the way along the coast from Malaga through Torremolinos and past the award winning marina of Benalmadena on to the playground of the rich and famous at Puerto Banus and Marbella and eventually on to Gibraltar. Alongside the coast run the mountain ranges dotted with traditional white washed villages such as Mijas and Rhonda.

Arroyo de la Miel

Benalmadena is divided into three districts.Arroyo de la Miel is the main town centre.This is the main shopping area and here you will find an abundance of bars and restaurants to suit every taste. Tivoli theme park and the cable car ride to mount Calamorro can also be found in Arroyo. From the top of the mountain you can see some fantastic views along the coast as far as Gibraltar.There is also a train station in Arroyo which will link you with the airport and towns all along the coast.

Benalmadena Costa is where you will find the beach and the marina.This is the busiest part of the area where you have access to 9km of safe sandy beaches. Sunbed and parasols are available for hire and a host of water sports are available.The Marina has won the title of the worlds best marina several times and it only takes one visit to see why. During the day it is busy with people shopping or taking boat or fishing trips and in the evening it becomes the place to party with its many bars, restaurants and discos creating a fantastic atmosphere. In this area you will also find 24 hour square with its numerous bars, discos and nightclubs.

Beside the marina you will also find Sea Life, This is a unique magical marine experience that is home to over 3,000 exhibits including the largest collection of sharks in Costa Del Sol. You will be amazed as you walk through the underwater ocean glass tunnel and see the sharks swimming all around you. The kids will be able to feed the Stingrays in the hugh tank and will love the Clown fish ( Nemo ) . A cafe, mini golf and kids playground are all available on site.

If you want to find somewhere quieter to relax then Parque du Paloma is a must. This is a beautifully landscaped free park with a lake surrounded by walks. It is only 300 metres from the beach but is very peaceful and relaxing. Chickens , ducks, geese ,rabbits and peacocks roam the park freely and are quite tame.There are also cafes and children's playgrounds within the park.

At the top of the park you will find Selwo Marina. This is an innovative marine fauna park and is the only Dolphin and Penguin park in Andalusia. Exhibits feature Dolphins, Sea Lions and Exotic birds and regular displays and shows take place throughout the park at various times.The penguin enclosure is the only real ice enclosure in the Costa Del Sol.The park is child friendly with touch and explore pools and a great kids playground.

The beautiful white washed village of Benalmadena pueblo is approximately 1.5km from the apartment and among its narrow cobbled streets you will find many more traditional restaurants and tapas bars, some with magnificent views over the coast. There is also a Bull Ring near the Pueblo and the new Butterfly Park can also be found there.

There are many other parks and facilities in the area such as the FuengIrola Zoo, The Crocodile park in Torremolinos and several good water parks that will make a great family day out.

“Wonderful Holiday Location”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2016

We spent a few days at this apartment and had a fantastic stay. The apartment is beautifully kept and spotlessly clean, is equipped with everything you can need and is well located for exploring the surrounding area. Even in October we made good use of the excellent gas barbecue on the spacious terrace and enjoyed the view of the mountains as we chatted over breakfast each morning. We didn't use the shared pool which is just beside the terrace but I can imagine it being very popular with families with children. I would recommend hiring a car to get around (there is secure underground parking) although there is public transport to get to the beach area, the Pueblo or the cable car to go up the mountain. All in all a great holiday destination on the Costa del Sol.

Owner's reply: We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our apartment. The development is on the urban bus route so the local attractions are only minutes away. However we also recommend that our guests consider car hire for both their convenience and to explore the local area as there is just so much to see. Thank you very much for your review and we hope that we are able to welcome you back soon.

“Fantastic Apartment”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2016

We spent a fantastic week in Robert & Ellen's apartment.. The apartment was well equipped even down to a shopping trolley in the kitchen which we used more than once as the nearest supermarket was 20 minutes away. The surrounding area was stunning. There were lots of information in the apartment of places to visit, Mijas been our favourite. Thank you for our arrival pack which was much appreciated. We would definetley recommend this to family and friends.

Owner's reply: We are pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and that the information we provided was helpful. Mijas is a very beautiful village with narrow streets and hidden gems which make it fun to explore. It is also very easy to get to from Benalmadena using local transport. Thank you for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

“Comfortable 'Home from Home'”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2016

This was our first stay in this apartment although we have rented on several occasions within the Arenal Golf development. The owner provided us with extensive helpful local information prior to travelling and was available for support throughout - should we have needed it. The apartment was modern and well equipped with plentiful towels; even small things e.g. washing up liquid and washing powder was available. The apartment itself is located beside a swimming pool. Although there is a bus which services Arenal Golf we found we did need a car. In conclusion - we would rent Robert and Ellen's apartment again.

Owner's reply: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Lots of our guests choose not to hire a car and are happy to use the local public transport, however we always recommend that they consider hiring a car for at least part of their stay. We suppose it depends on what you want to do during your holiday. Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review and we hope to be able to welcome you back again soon.

“Best holiday ever”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2013

Having done the whole package holiday thing for years, self catering and all-inclusive, we decided to rent a private apartment for something different, and we were so glad we did. This apartment has absolutely everything. This finish is first class, and has everything you could wish for. The information that the owners provide you with, from a couple of weeks before you fly, and ensuring you arrive safely would put travel companies to shame. You do need transport when you are there, but you can get a bus into town cheap enough and a cab back in the evenings won't break the bank. The Arroyo is fantastic, and the Pueblo is just stunning. After the way we have been looked after and the comfort in which we stayed, our days of package holidays are long behind us, we will definitely be back to this fantastic venue.

Owner's reply: We are sure that you were a bit nervous about your holiday as this was the first time you`d tried self catering in an apartment so we are really pleased that you enjoyed the flexibility that it provides against a hotel stay. Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review and we look forward to having you back with us again soon.

“Superb !!”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2013

We Stayed in this apartment for one week in April 2013. We have stayed in benalmedena a few times before but mainly on the coast and not up beside Arroyo. But we were pleasantly surprised with the plenty of good quality bars and restaurant's in the area. Before we had even arrived at the apartment the attention to detail was outstanding. The owners emailed us frequently prior to going with every bit of information and advice possible. We were met at the apartment buy the "meet and greet"guy as arranged who explained everything about the apartment. We also received a welcome pack of bread ,milk ,water,butter etc until we got a chance to go to the supermarket. The apartment itself was immaculate. Everything there that you could possibly need .It felt like home from home almost immediately .We would definitely go back and I would recommend it to anyone. John & Sharon Blyth Northumberland

Owner's reply: We love Benalmadena because there is just so much to do and see in the area and we are pleased that by staying in our apartment you were able to experience and enjoy an area of the resort that you may otherwise have missed. Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review it is very much appreciated by us both and we look forward to receiving you back again soon.

“Top class apartment!”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2012

From the moment we booked this apartment, I knew we wouldn't be disappointed as Robert and Ellen keep me up-to-date on everything I needed to know about the apartment before and during my holiday. Robert and Ellen also provided us with information regarding the complex and surrounding areas. When we arrived, we were met at the apartment by Joe who showed us around the apartment, she made us feel at home and informed us of the welcome pack, which was greatly appreciated after a long day of traveling! This apartment was like just being able to bring your own home on holiday with you! We settled in quickly and we felt at home instantly. Having two teenage boys the WI-FI was a great addition to the apartment as was the 'Sky TV' in the bedroom. The iPod docking station also got plenty of use. It was also a great addition to have the use of the shopping trolley which made trips to and from the supermarket easy. That was certainly the case, when bringing the fresh meat back to the apartment for an evening BBQ on the terrace. Robert and Ellen also provided us with an extra gas cylinder for the gas barbecue should we run out. Having the pool so close to the apartment was great, you literally had to walk a few meters out of the apartment, and you were there! This was our fourth year in Arenal Golf, and this apartment was by far the best we have ever stayed in. Robert and Ellen suggested that we visit the newly opened club house which served great food and drink at a reasonable price. The bus service in the area was fantastic, it was cheap and always on time for trips into Arroyo or the Marina. There is also a bus service that takes you in the opposite direction into the beautiful village of Pueblo which is definitely somewhere you want to see! We were provided with a taxi number in the apartment, which was quick and easy to use. Throughout our holiday we knew that Robert and Ellen were only a phone call away should there have been any problems. This apartment is top class as mentioned in the title and we would 100% recommend this apartment to family and friends. We will definitely be booking this apartment in the near future. Thanks again Robert and Ellen for the fantastic service you provided.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your very kind review of our apartment. We really appreciate the fact that you have taken the time to sit down and write this and are glad that the information we provided was helpful and that you all enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you all back again soon. Thank you again.

“Best Holiday we've had in years”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2012

This Apartment is everything you could want for a relaxing family holiday. The pool is right outside the window! There's a play station , dvd's , books , games , English tv channels , towels are all provided , two bathrooms , etc. And if you can tear yourself away then you can have peace of mind because it's very secure-there's even a safe for your valuables. It's also ideally located between the quiet beautiful pueblo with it's delicious fish restaurants and stunning Arab market ( only on certain days) and then in the other direction you have the busier centre of Arroya with it's mixture of tapas bars and international restaurants. And if that's not enough , go a little further and you'll find a world class marina with even more. For the attractions we can only comment on the ones we used-Selwo was very good for the Dolphins but was a little disappointing otherwise , we also went to Gibraltar -approx 1 1/2 hours away and this was fantastic-do the full tour-you'll see everything . Been to Spain many times in last 20 years and this is the best Apartment we've stayed in Looking forward to coming back. Thank you Robert and Ellen.

Owner's reply: We really appreciate your review of our apartment. It`s always nice to get away on holiday and spend quality time with your family or partner. We believe that having comfortable accommodation where you can relax and feel at home after a tiring day out is also vitally important and we try our best to provide this for our guests. We`re so glad you had a great holiday and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Many thanks again.

“Great location to explore the Malaga area”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2012

My family visited the lovely 2 bedroom apartment for a 10 day visit in July. The owner had supplied us with lots of information about the resort and the facilities before we went which was really useful. The apartment was nicely furnished and had all mod cons (washing machine, dish washer, satellite tv, ipod docking station, etc). The complex itself was quiet and secure with a decent sized swimming pool. We rented a car and I would suggest that it is essential to have one. The local beaches are lovely and there is lots for older kids to do. We visited tivoli world and aqualand.

Owner's reply: Thank you for reviewing our apartment. We are glad that the information we provided was useful and hopefully it helped you plan what you wanted to do and see during your stay. You are right about a car and we always recommend that our guests consider this when they first enquire. Unless you know the area well and are familar with the buses we feel that a car is neccessary.

“The best private rental apartment bar none !!”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2012

The title says it all. This apartment totally exceeded our expectations. For the first time ever the photos matched exactly what met us on arrival. Robert and Ellen have gone out of their way to make this property truly a home from home and have equipped it with everything you could possibly need for a thoroughly enjoyable stay. We could have stayed for a month and left half the contents of our cases at home !! In fact the only 2 things it was lacking were a butler and a maid ! Robert and Ellen checked in with us every now and then to make sure we had everything we needed and were having a great time. This gave the holiday a truly personal service. Not only is the apartment beautifully maintained and equipped but it also has a fantastic location in the complex. Most residents would have a short walk to their nearest pool yet this was located on the ground floor directly overlooking the best pool in the vicinity. That being said it is extremely safe and secure with key access required to the complex,building and pool area. This gave great peace of mind when holidaying with young children. The apartment is situated on a quiet road yet only a few minutes from the idyllic Benalmadena Pueblo. A few mins in the other direction and you arrive at Benalmadena Costa and the beautiful marina. Our primary concern is now that the secret is out we will have to join the queue to get back..Superb !! Will DEFINITELY return ! 5 stars all round !!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you for giving our apartment such a wonderful review and also for the kind comments you entered in our visitors book. They are greatly appreciated by both of us We are delighted that you had a great holiday and that our apartment exceeded your expections. Thank you all so much for taking care of the place during your stay and also for deciding to rebook with us for next year. (We`ll try our best to get the Butler and Maid situation resolved before your next visit). Thanks again.

“Never stayed at a place where we looked after so well.”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2011

What we all liked about this property is how well equipped the apartment was with provisions., like being at home but with a great view. We had a welcome package (milk, bread, juice, beer, wine) which was a pleasant surprise. The apartment was very clean and well appointed. The location was good, close to a Supermarket and all the main highways. We were well looked after if we needed anything. The service from Russel & Robert was outstanding. We had a wonderful time, and HIGHLY recommend this place.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your review of our apartment. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay especially as you had a very long journey to get there. We apologise for the difficulty you had in gaining access to the pool. This was because just before your arrival the community decided to lock the gate each evening and we had not time to obtain a key. We did try to arrange for the collection of a key from the caretaker during your stay but unfortunately were not able to achieve this. We are now in pocession of the key for the pool gate and this will remain in the apartment for our future guests. We thank you again and look forward to receiving you back in the future.
