We booked this apartment at very short notice after the apartment we had booked originally was very unsuitable and we were essentially homeless in Spain. The owner was very courteous and helpful, accepting the booking promptly and putting me in touch with the lady who deals with the apartment. The lady was also very helpful, and arranged a time that day to meet to get the keys.
The apartment is on the 9th floor of a clean building, with elevator access to the floor. The building overlooks bonanza square, where there are plenty of pubs and restaurants, and an excellent homemade ice cream shop. Inside the apartment it was very clean and exactly as advertised. Decorated to a high standard and with an excellent view of the sea from the balcony. The air conditioning is a pay as you go meter, with €1 giving 3 hours of air conditioning, and there is a stop button so you can stop the timer if you are going out all day, very handy!
There is no washing machine in the apartment, but you can either wash the clothes by hand and hang on the line on the balcony, or there is a laundrette at the top of avendia bonanza, around a 10 minute walk away.
The swimming pool is across the road from the building, access via a locked gate. The pool is shared with other buildings too so can get busy but there is a lifeguard there and the pool is child friendly with the maximum depth 1.5m. Sun loungers can be rented for €3 per day. Next to the pool is a play park and a tennis court, again only accessed via the locked gate to allow residents only.
The apartment is about 15 minutes walk from benelmadena station and is easy to find. A taxi would cost around €6 from station to apartment.
There are plenty of attractions nearby, with the marina, sealife centre, and selwo dolphinarium all around 20 minutes walk away.
The best part of the holiday was knowing that Clive, and sharon were only a phone call away, 24 hours a day, if any problems arose (which they didn't.) would definitely recommend this property and we will be booking again for our next holiday to benelmadena.
We stayed here for a short break during May half term. This was the fourth time we have visited Benalmádena over the past few years and we have always chosen to return to this flat, having been very satisfied every time. The flat is well located in a great area for bars and restaurants and is just a short walk from the beach and marina. Arroyo de la Miel train station is also an easy walk away, making travelling to/from the airport very simple. I will definitely be staying again!

This is the third time I have stayed at this apartment since 2010
You can't beat the location. It is centrally located and everything is within walking distance. It is close to many interesting restaurants, bars, and a large well equipped supermarket.
The apartment itself is spacious and welcoming. It is a home away from home.
I fully intend to stay here again.
Very clean comfortable apartment, close to beach, restaurants, bars.
There is a lovely park 10 mins walk away, also Dolphin World the other side of park.
My husband and I visited for a week long break. The apartment is very clean and comfortable. Just a short walk to the beach and marina and there is a square of restaurants and bars just on the doorstep. I would certainly book again and recommend to my friends and family.
