Fabulous location,views superb. Generously sized clean penthouse apartment large balcony ! Loved the size of the rooms .had a great holiday here .private pool excellent and sometimes we were the only ones in it .
I wouldn't let the negative comments in the other reviews put you off as I found there were a lot of positives i.e. The location & views that I will always remember ,ok it's dated but it has obviously been expensive furniture when put in as the majority of it is great .king size bed very comfy & also in the second bedroom my daughter slept well every night & the added bonus of her own ensuite with shower was a great help.the apartment would benefit from a couple of hours work from a handy man without much effort & it would make a big difference ,so really depends on how fussy you are about things ,I personally liked it's quirky sea/boat themed interior!
The living room patio door needs attention,I would stay again & I would recommend
In our opinion this is the most perfectly positioned apartment on the marina. Full marina view from both the master bedroom and living area, looking across the water to the restaurants and cafes. And behind was the full view of the Benalmadena bay. Central yet peaceful.
The apartment itself is extremely spacious, top floor penthouse, decor in keeping with the nautical theme.
The roof top pool is fabulous, and all areas accessible by the lift.
Unfortunately the maintenance of the apartment really lets it down. Curtains & blinds had tears, main bathroom shower floods the bathroom, many cupboards unusable due to unmaintained handles, clasps, and runners. Simple items like the plastic draining board was broken, and no 2 glasses matched. Such a shame as many items could be updated at very little cost. The place was generally clean, just uncared for.
It even has a piano, but again unusable as requires a simple tuning.
Barbara was great, helping with instructions on the air con etc, though a welcome guide to apartment amenities and the area would have been useful.
Good points: huge terrace, up to date large fridge freezer, very comfy beds, main bedroom is a kingsize.
All in all we had a great stay, peaceful & central, just what we wanted.
Would we stay again? Possibly, though we'd ask about maintenance in future.
Our experience with this apartment began with our arrival after a full day travelling, to be confronted with a supply of absolutely minimal toilet paper, (15cm in length), and no soap. Towels thin, torn and damp.
This apartment had many failings:
- Balcony doors do not fit the opening. (8cm gap). Could not be closed or locked.
- Very dirty overall condition
- Oven not working. Microwave ancient.
- Ripped and dirty sofa
- Shower in spa totally unusable. (turned on and water sprayed horizontally all over bathroom).
- Old discarded furniture, and 2 old TV's, placed into a dirty corner of the balcony.
- Needed to clean outdoor furniture on balcony before eating our first meal.
- No light in the usable part of the balcony.
- No ceiling in laundry
- Chipped crockery
This apartment desperately needs some money spent on maintenance
We would certainly not recommend this apartment to anybody.
First of all Barbara is lovely and will welcome you and explain everything. We had a small issue with the patio doors and she came straight away and made it secure for us - first class - thank-you Barbara. This apartment has brilliant views, and as it's away from the port shops very quiet at night. The apartment is exactly as the pictures, very nautical and has everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. It is also very secure no worries while you are out and about. I dropped star as it was looking a bit tired eg chipped plates, toilet roll holder off the wall, no matching glasses, dirty patio chairs, flickering hallway light, holes in the blackout blinds etc but it was December so the end of the season and the owners might freshen it up in the quieter months before the new season starts but the apartment itself was very clean. The balcony is a good size and perfect for sitting with a drink in the evening. The shower didn't look much but great when you got in it was very powerful. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book this apartment again.
