My wife and I were very happy with the apartment and lovely garden, near the park which was just across the road, near to the Supermarkets etc. The apartment was furnished well, the only complaints we had was the owners could get a new double bed (as we well know that Spanish beds are not very comfortable) or a very good mattress, the Shower cubicle in the small bathroom was not very wide when getting into it, also four rust spots on the shower tray which could not avoid when standing under the shower, apart from all this, it was an excellent apartment, and we enjoyed our holiday. We would like to add Lynn was very good and very helpful to us and we would like our thanks be known to her, the apartment was spotless when we arrived, (the rust spots are not her fault as shower trays do get worn over time being used). Thanking you.

When I was looking at the information on the website, nothing indicates that there not was direct access to the pool area from the apartment, that the reason on my answer on "Met your expatations"
The apartment was over all a good experience, the only minus was that the Hindu temple in the back yard, was calling to prayer a lot of times during a week with a noising bell over hours, very irritating

The property met our needs in terms of having two bedrooms, bathroom, a living room and kitchen and gave us a place to stay reasonably comfortably when we were visiting my aunt and uncle in Benalmadena.
However, the decor is very tired and the whole apartment could do with a lick of paint. And the beds are very short not ideal when we are all 5ft11 and over!!
In addition, the shower holder is broken, so the entire bathroom gets watered as you try to wash your hair (the shower head flies off the holder...).
We had cold/luke-warm water on the first day which my son enjoyed for his shower my partner and I had freezing cold washes. The setting for hot water on the boiler was set to medium and we had to call the on-site managers out to adjust it. We had a hot shower in the afternoon.
And the bathroom got soaked with hot water this time...
There is a shower room in addition to the en-suite bathroom, but the shower is so small it is only suitable for small children. Any normal sized adult will be able to get in but not do anything else! A bit of a waste of space.
Would I stay there again? Probably not.
Would I recommend it to anyone? Probably not
Our Managing Agents have informed us that you reported to them you were very happy with the apartment, so we are somewhat surprised by your review. I am, however, very disappointed that you chose to break the terms of the contract, as printed on the Villarenters web site. Your booking clearly states that there would just be 2 persons yourself, Ms Els Humphries-Davies and Ms Melanie Jerome. However, I understand from our Managing Agents that you brought in another person who stayed in our apartment, without informing us first. This is totally against the terms of the contract you signed. Our Managing Agents work very hard throughout the year keeping the apartment clean and in good working order. Anything that is broken is replaced immediately we are notified. We have received countless reviews reflecting this. We have had an extremely busy year with many guests returning. We do appreciate that things like paintwork get knocked during the year and our Managing Agents will redecorate now that it is quieter. The beds are in fact standard size their length measuring 6’ 6”. The double bed is 4’6” wide which is a standard size. The fitments in the bathroom are quite new and the apartment is checked before each booking and they were not reported as damaged before your arrival. The new boiler, which was only fitted last month, was set at medium, which is sufficient for the summer months. As the weather had not turned just yet it was left at this setting for your booking. I am delighted that our Managing Agent was able to come out within the hour and turn the dial up a bit for you to it’s winter setting.

We stayed at the apartment from 15th to 24th May 2009.WE would like to thank you for a great stay. Our party consisted of 4 adults, 2 in their fifties and 2 in their seventies. We hired a car at the airport and we were met on arrival by Janet the managing agent following excellent directions which were Emailed to us prior to our stay. Tha apartment complex had a secure remotely operated gate and we had a parking space reserved for us. Janet was very helpfull showing us around the apartment and explaining how all the appliances and air conditioning worked.
We had stayed in an apartment nearby last Christmas so we knew the location was good, close to the park and only a short walk to supermarkets and bars. The apartment is clean with all the facilities you could wish for including Sattelite TV, CD player and air conditioning. The garden and conservatory were ideal with the garden catching the sun in the morning and early evening. Overall we were very pleased with the holiday and the apartment. The only 2 negatives were the pool does not open until June ( A new rule concerning a lifegaurd having to be present apparantly) and a little noise at night from the water pipes which feed the apartment block which are situated near to the apartment. Otherwise I can say that we had a great stay and would not hesitate in recommending the apartment to family and fiiends.Thanks again

We had a great holiday staying in your very comfortable and clean apartment. It had everything we needed and was fantastically located. We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful park near to the apartment and the close proximity of the beach and other facilities.
We will certainly consider you again in the future possibly when the pool is open. I was aware when I booked that this would be closed which wasnt a problem at the time but I didnt realise quite how hot it would be when we were out there (mid-April) - the weather was great and it would have been nice to have had use of the pool.
Thanks again for your efficiency in handling our booking and please also thank Jan (your property manager) for her helpfulness on our arrival. She made it clear that she was always available if and when we needed her. Jan, if you read this, dont mention the issue with the front door key!!

We had a fab time. The place shone, everywhere sparkled and felt loved. We were made to feel at home, please pass our feelings onto Lynne, you have a gem there, she replaced bulbs within hours of calling her and all the cupboards were immaculate and clean, a credit to you. Thanks for a wonderful holiday. We would like to know if we could have the flat next year. Thanking you, Sandra, Walsall June 2011
Just a quick note to thank you, we had a really good time spent in your apartment. Everything required was there and it didnt take long until it felt like home. The 3 months just seemed to fly by. We were thinking about staying again next year, and wondered if your apartment would be available. Cruse, Scotland, March 2011
Thank you for renting your accommodation to us. It was really lovely, brilliant location and very comfortable. Thanks for the English TV channels too which pleased my daughter. I especially loved the little extra which you don't often find such as the air fresher, washing up liquid and washing powder. May not mean a lot to you but meant a lot to us. The apartment was lovely and clean and well catered for our needs. Thanks again for a lovely stay and I would highly recommend you to family and friends. Linda, Vale of Glamorgan, August 2010.

"Thanks very much for letting us rent your apartment in Benalmadena. It was brilliant and exactly as it is on the internet, plenty of room, the garden was something we never had on holidays before, we really enjoyed having a few drinks outside. The two pools were excellent, the children had a great time in both of them. It was also very handy having the Managing Agent across the road if we needed any help. The apartment had everything we needed. We would highly recommend it to any of our friends and would love to go back next year." Chris, Ireland July ཅ
"This apartment will suit everyone. The garden is safe & allows privacy for those sunbathing. The kitchen layout allows you to cook & keep a safe eye on children. Teenagers can sleep all day without noise disturbance & it has a good location being close to the stunning park. The apartment is well maintained and a first class base."George & Mary from Glasgow April 2009.

"Thank you for letting us rent your apartment we had a lovely holiday & thought your apartment was fantastic thanks again p.s we are hoping to rent it again later in the year, kind regards, Shaun Lee" Notts Feb 2009
"We had a lovely stay in this apartment. It was bigger inside than the photos on the website make it look. Having the garden meant that our children could play safely outside. The apartment is well equipped and having stuff for the beach (buckets, spades, beach mats etc) available was useful. It is in a good location, which means you don't need to hire a car, being next door to the family park and just a short walk from the beach. The Town of Arroyo de la Miel is also close by. P Griffiths, Bolton, March 2008"
