“great location”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

well just returned from our 16 day holiday at Benalmedena our favorite holiday destination . we arrived this year to find that the apartment had just been recently decorated and new front door since we were there last year . Beds are so comfy, bed linen and towels nice and clean everything in apartment you could need for cooking a nice meal in which we did on numerous occasions as it is lovely to sit on the balcony enjoying the evening , our days also started with breakfast on the balcony so peaceful. well we have been going to Benalmadena for 15 years now and have used this apartment for the last 3 (hoping to use it next year too) this year we had a night up at Pueblo this is something not too be missed the views up there are stunning. you can get a bus right outside Agata or a taxi only cost us 8 euro . we travel with a group of friends every year and there are 13 of us so we do not rent the sunbeds round the pool we always have" our tree" just by the entrance to the pool . The pool bar is handy for snacks if staying by pool for the day . Can also recommend El Tapeo just down towards bonanza square 3 tapas and a drink for 5 euros and they are excellent so if you've not tried there Paul give it a go next time your out there . Just up the stairs opposite is Stentons where Barry and Jackie will make you welcome and serve lovely food also same block is Sizzles if you like a drink a pint is only 1 euro 20 . will be back again next year .Thanks Paul

“Just the job”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Agata apartments are very well located near to Bonanza Square with plenty of bars/restaurants close by. The apartment has been recently refurbished and has everything you could want for a short stay. The balcony faces east which was ideal for me sitting with a cup of tea in the sun - great start to the day. The pools are lovely, not too cold like some. Hire of the sunbeds at 4 euro each is a bit steep, but they are very comfortable. I don't think you can beat this for a quick, inexpensive getaway.

Thanks John for the kind words, and so glad you enjoyed the apartment after our working holiday when it was refurbished.We also enjoyed coffee on the balcony in the morning. The cost of the sunbeds by the pool can be reduced by buying a book of 7 tickets for the cost of 6

“Good value”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Great wee apartment, really clean and had everything we needed. Good location, pretty central with lots of bars and cafés on your doorstep. Gardens around apartment well kept. Our only disappointment was the Agata pool not opened and was really hot during our week 9-16 June. Still not opened when we left on Monday 17th. We could use the Hercules apartments pool but if you want a bed it was €4 and you were not allowed to bring your own beds or lie on towels around the pool. Just ensure you factor this in cost I'd wan to lie on sund bed at pool.

Glad you enjoyed the apartment, it's facilities the gardens and swimming pools.
The 4 communities of Agata, Hercules Aguila and Iris all share the garden area this is why it is so large and can easily find your own area to sunbath.
The pool you used is the main pool for Agata, this is open from April to October. The other pool area is also for use of all of the communities and opens when a larger number of people are in the gardens , normally July and August, so the pools are never to crowded.

There is no charge to sit or lay in the gardens or to use the pools, the charge is for the use of the sunbed. This charge covers the cost of the life guards.

“good time had by all”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

we stayed in this apartment for the second year running and have already booked again for same time next year . it is a good location for all amenities just out the front and up the stairs are eating places were you get a good breakfast Stentons is our personal favorite they do good sunday lunch and other meals too. Paloma park is very close by and you can easy walk to the marina where we hired a boat as private party and had a wonderful time swimming in the sea . Everything you need is in apartment so it is just as easy to enjoy a meal in if you wish or a nice relaxing evening sitting on the balcony . The only thing i think could be of help would be a second set of key's as grand daughter getting older now and likes to do her own thing otherwise no complaints from us . thanks Paul

Many thanks for the kinds words, we followed you in the apartment and thank you for Keeping the apartment so clean.
When we where out last we bought new covers for the suite and had a new front door fitted.

The will be no problem leaving an extra set of keys for your visit next year. There is also the option of leaving the keys at the 24 hour reception.

Thank you for the review, and I am sorry that the apartment has already been booked for the dates you required next year.

Since your stay the mattresses in the bedroom have been replaced with new ones of luxury foam. I now employ an agent who will only use linen provided by me. This is linen is all brand new and is only to be used in my apartment and not coming from a central pool of linen as when you stayed . Paul
