Fabulous accommodation and fabulous area
Just returned from 6 days in the apartment and loved it. The apartment is cool and airy and light. We didn't use the air conditioning so can't comment on that. LOVED the shower!! The balcony is large and gets the sun all afternoon which is just lovely. The kitchen is very well equipped and had everything we needed. Fridge is huge and we even had ice lollies in the freezer. The pool was freezing but as the temperature got up in the afternoon it was lovely to take a dip. Going at the end of April we had the pool (and pool area) to ourselves most of the time and were joined on Saturday afternoon by some other residents. It took us two trips to the pool area to realise there are toilets there!! The Benalmadena area itself is lovely and the apartment is just a short walk down to the main street where we made use of the bus stop (at Flatotel) to travel to Torremolinos and Feungirola. I downloaded the app you suggested for the transport and it worked perfectly (I will be passing this on to friends who have booked a hotel holiday in Benalmadena in the summer!). We walked one day from the apartment into Torremolinos and it was just lovely. Lots of lovely bars and shops on the way and we had several trips down off the main road onto the beach. The water was crystal clear. We ate in Bar76 in Benalmadena and would highly recommend it (I had the prawn and steak salad). We even got a free bottle of (red) wine which was really lovely. It doesn't look much from the outside but it is truly lovely inside and the food is amazing. Feungirola is bustling with lots of really lovely streets criss-crossing over the main square with restaurants and shops. All in all we had a fabulous time and have no hesitation in recommending this area (and the apartment!) to friends. Thank you very much and hope to deal with you again in the near future.
