Have stayed in this apartment in february 2013 and in 2014 loved it both times.
Its in the heart of the marina but not over looking over the bars and restaurants so
still nice and quite .
Great sitting on balcony looking out to sea front and boats
Hopefully will be going again in 2015.

The apartment is situated on one of the islands in the marina with a lovely view over the ocean. There is simply nothing better than to wake up and look outside and see yachts and ocean all around and enjoy breakfast at the balcony right above sea. The apartment is very clean and well equipped with washing machine, dishwasher and everything you'll be needing in the kitchen. Furthermore the owner and his friend (Carl) were very welcoming and had even brought us some milk and water to get started. The only bad thing is that Benalmandena is quite small and not that interesting if you are looking for sigthseeing, shopping and cultural activities. Fortunately car rental from Malaga Airport is very cheap and Benalmandena with this apartment makes a perfect base for exploring south Spain with Malaga, Marbella, Gibraltar (but don't go there it's a complete wast of time), Al hambra (go here instead), Valencia, and Sevilla nearby. The apartment has its own parking lot on the island. The flats have a small shared pool on the roof top which is okay, since nobody normally is using it so it doesn't get crowded. The apartment complex next door has a slightly larger and more popular pool which I think you also are welcome too use. Furthermore there are lovely beaches on both sides of the marina just about 500 m away. Altogether, my girlfriend and I had a lovely stay and would recommend this apartment for every couple looking for a getaway and an opportunity to explore south of Spain.
