Decided to make a return visit to these apartments, at the last minute.
In the last review I spoke about how unfriendly the staff on Reception were and I am happy to report that this time round they were, in the main lovely.
The lady that checked us in was very nice, friendly and smiled. She was also happy to exchange sterling for euros the male staff, however, were fairly friendly but would never change money (one actually said they don't do it).
It was January (out of season) so eveywhere was quiet and we did not experience any noise in the apartments. I can imagine them being noisy during busy periods though.
We were given apartment 208 which has a sea view. It was clean and comfortable and looks like it has recently had a bit of an update. I couldn't get the gas cooker to work and asked reception - within 5 minutes a member of staff came to show me how to use it.
The apartments are first line to the beach. If you go to the beach and turn right then you are 15 minutes walk to Benalmadena marina, turn left and within 20 minutes you are in Torremolinos (dont just stick to the beach - walk through the alleys to see some traditional Spanish shops and restauarants).
Opposite there are a few British bars / restaurants. Rumours is a nice bar as is the one a couple of doors away (but I can't remember it's name).
Overall it is good value budget accomodation, there is a supermarket near the entrance.
Additional costs to be aware of - There is a 50 Euro deposit per apartment on arrival which is refunded on departure. TV remote control costs 30 Euros and the same costs 6 Euros per night.
When in the area of Torremolinos and Benalmadena, beware of pick pockets and muggers. You get them everywhere there are tourists but in Spain the Police are not very helpful when you report it, they just advise you to "make a report".
