This apartment was as advertised, very spacious and well equipped and a short distance from 5 excellent restaurants. It was a bonus having the supermarket and chemist close at hand. Nearby bus stops provide a good means of transport.
The owner was unable to pick us up on arrival after midnight and we were rather despondent when the taxi drove up a very steep street to the main gate, but we were delighted next day to discover a lift which took us to the bottom of the street near to the main road and sea front.
The complex was very quiet which made for a very good, much needed holiday. We would definitely go back.
Just back yesterday from spending 2 weeks here as a family of 5. Great size apartment, more than enough room for all of us, (we have 2 big teenage sons). The main master bedroom is large and bright with access to the huge terrace. Huge wardrobe space and a tall chest of drawers and is ensuite. The 2nd bedroom has 2 single beds, wardrobes space & we used a fold-away bed that Gerardo provided for us which we placed in the sitting area.
Good kitchen space, everything you need. Large fridge, hob, toaster & microwave. The overall size of the apartment surprised us as it seems larger than usual sized apartments in the area. The terrace is the largest in the whole complex and gets the sun first thing in the morning till early afternoon. Perfect for breakfasts in the sun!
3 fantastic pools were used a lot with great views of the surrounding hills, surrounded by palm trees and foliage. A quiet area to enjoy a swim or just sit & read. There is a bar / eatery on a terrace near the pool which will provide snacks and cold drinks to relax to. Very cheap too I might add.
The location of the apartment is perfect as it sits across the road from direct access to the beach. There are a row of 5 restaurants and a bar literally 3 mins walk from the complex. The complex was quiet and far enough removed from nightlife and rowdy bars to suit us perfectly. However the main promenade running parrallel to the beach with restaurants and bars is within a 15 min walk.
Our only issue we had was the electric constantly tripping if cooking or boiling the kettle, when both the air con and hot water mains where on. A quick call to the owner Gerardo explained that with only a certain amount of electric supplied to the apartment, use of air con and hot water immersion used 90% of it, so turn one off to cook etc. Nothing the owner can do about that & once aware it was no issue.
Overall great sized apartment, perfect location, air con excellent, owner was very helpful and responded promptly via e-mail to anything. Highly recommended.
Great spacious an very clean well equipped appartment.would definitely recommend this to a friend and family. A car is helpfull here
We are enjoying our holiday so much. The apartment is very spacious and in a brilliant location. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thankyou
We have just returned from our holiday in El Colosso. The apartment was lovely it was big and airy and very clean. Gerardo was very helpful. I loved that it was situated near a supermarket and lots of little restaurants. I would definately return but I would make sure the pools were opened next time.
The weather was very hot and with two teenagers we spent a lot of time at the waterpark in fuengirola as the pools were closed at the complex but that was the only drawback.
Having had various holidays in and around the Benalmadena area I can quite honestly say that the apartment rates as one of the best in both facilities and location. The apartment was as advertised, very spacious and equipped to a high standard. The location being just outside the centre of Benalmadena, approx. 15 to 20 minutes walk, but very close to the beach was just what we wanted. Use of the apartment complex pools was not possible as our stay was outside the normal opening period. Communication with the owner Gerardo was very good and he was always willing to help where necessary. We would recommend this apartment to both couples and families looking for somewhere to stay in Benalmadena.
