We have just spent a brilliant week at Brian’s apartment in Benalmadena. This is our second time after having such a great time last year. We have stayed in the apartment with our teenage children last year and friends this year. The apartment is perfect, clean, well equipped, spacious with bedrooms and bathrooms that offer privacy as well as excellent communal space too. The grounds and pool are peaceful, private and maintained to a very high standard. It is in a prime location within a short walk ( slightly hilly ) to the Marina with many wonderful bars, restaurants and shops.
The local bus service is excellent too! A great holiday without breaking the bank ~ excellent value for money.
Ideal location for all that Benalmadena has to offer within easy reach of the beach and marina and just a short walk to Arroyo.
The pool and gardens are spotlessly clean and maintained on a daily basis.
If you wish to travel by bus these are available at the bottom of the road to Mijas Fuengirola Torremolinos Malaga etc.
Excellent fortnights holiday in relaxing surroundings!
We will return.
The moment you see the Don Jouqin apartments you know they are going to be special there is secure car parking and a lovely swimming pool in the grounds and the landings and lifts are spotlessly clean,the apartment we stayed in was on the first floor as we entered it you could see that it was spacious and light an very clean it had two large bedrooms a bathroom and a shower room the kitchen had everything that you could wish for to make your stay enjoyable it had even got two shopping trolleys for your trips to Supersol and Lidl that are not too far away.The apartment is central for taking trips to Torromalinos,Fungorolia and Malaga by bus and within walking distance to Arroyo and the marina,we really enjoyed our first time in a apartment as we have always chosen hotels before and would not hesitate in recommending this apartment to friends and family or to anyone that is thinking of booking it .We would also like to thank Brian and Frances for the loan of there apartment and I'm glad that we got the opportunity to meet them on the last day of our holiday it was a nice surprise.
Booked this apartment for a week in January and it was a fantastic week. The apartment was ready for us on arrival even though we were early. It was spotless. The apartment is very spacious we were a family of 6 4 adults 2 kids and had more than enough room and very child friendly. Had a slight hiccup with the electricity but when I emailed Brian he replied very quick. Brian was very friendly and efficient from the minute I enquired about the apartment to booking the apartment would highly recommend.
The location is excellent, within walking distance of the beach, marina and up to Arroyo de la Miel. The appartment is spotlessly clean and with great facilities (good kitchen equipment, English TV, 2 ensuites) and effective air con/heating system.
The layout affords good privacy for families or couples.
Brian provides very helpful information to ensure the stay is enjoyable.
Parking is available too.
Unfortunately the appartment doesn't get any direct sun at this time of the year, and the closest garden / pool area was shut, which was a pity, as the weather was great.
We would definitely return. All together a brilliant stay and extremely good value for money.
