At first we have been a bit concerned about not having the air conditioner in the bedroom or at least closer to the bedroom door but it proved to be just fine. Temperatures in Malaga were not higher than 32 Celsius (while in Turkey you can get 40) so all was good. Swimming pool was amazing, very big and just the right deep. There is also a small swimming pool great for smaller children. Check the locker on the balcony as it hides one or two sun umbrellas (we noticed just in the last day). Also we thought that the distance to beach or other places would be a problem but that's not the case as we have always gone to a different place (so many things to do in Benalmadena and Torremolinos. Worth mentioning that this is right between the two so really walking distance to any place there. Torremolinos beaches are better than the ones in Malaga and you can do so many things there as well: parasailing, jetsky, paddelboats with slides on them :), there is an inflatable waterpark on the sea, etc etc..)
I reccomend the owner purchasing some plastic kitchen ustensils to protect her own frying pans from scratching and make them ladt longer. Also we bought a small grill-pan that proved to be a great addition to the cooker and helped us to get more healthy food. Access to the swimming pool was through one of the adjacent buildings as there was some work in the court but that's just a temporary thing. Note that the key for the court works on all the other houses around the swimming pool so you can enter through any of the gates. The swimming pool was never too crowded and our daughter found always a couple of kids to play with. We would come back mainly for the swimming pool but also for the comfort and the quiet place that we got from Lidia. Very good English btw and very kind person. Thank you
Lidia the property manager was brilliant. She got us milk etc for our arrival. She could not be more helpful.
However, I can only give 4 stars due to the air conditioning unit depositing black soot. I am aware that a technician is attending and it did this as it hadn't been used for a while. We had to use it alot as it was hot.
The jacuzzi bath is amazing. The pool was warm too.
It's situated in a quiet residential area with Dia supermarket next door and Lidl 5 mins walk away.
The negative parts for us were simple things such as no coat hooks anywhere. Could do with some near door for coats and in bathroom as nowhere to hang towels.
Also could do with a/c or fan in bedroom. We left bedroom door open to try and cool it down.
A vacuum cleaner would be helpful.
Two sets of keys too as you need keys to get into pool area etc.
Would we stay here again? Yes.
Cannot commend Lidia enough. She went far and above her role. Thank you.
We enjoyed our stay here. Lovely 1 bedroom apartment close to all amenities.Balcony very spacious and sunny.Walk to beach 10 mins. Would definitely come again as Lidia was very helpful and spoke English.
