If you want a great value break on Spain’s most famous holiday coast then book into the Benal Beach Apartments, set right on the beach in Benalmadena Costa, Torremolinos’ more sophisticated neighbour. The Benal Beach Apartments are in a very manageable complex just off one of Benalmadena Costa’s beaches, with 42 apartments in total. There’s a touch of the sea brought into the complex in the shape of not one but five swimming pools among the landscaped gardens that surround the apartments.
Although Benal Beach Apartments are self-catering, there are extras on site, including a restaurant for nights off from cooking for the kids, and a fitness centre to help you keep in beach shape. WiFi is available for a charge. Each apartment has full air conditioning and a satellite TV for all your favourite UK shows. The kitchenettes have everything you need to get by on your own, including a coffee maker, dishwasher and a microwave.
Practicalities like security are well taken care of via a 24-hour reception service and security guarding round-the-clock. You can pick up souvenirs of your stay in Spain in the complex’s shop.
Benalmadena Costa is built around excellent quality beaches, including one of the only nudist beaches in this area. Otherwise there is Playa Malapesquera (or Torrebermeja) which is big and has the best of the facilities. Playa Fuente de la Salud is a more active place, big with families and water sports fans.
There’s lots to do around the resort, with the excellent Parque de la Paloma, a large aquarium, a butterfly park, even a Buddhist temple if you want to get your head in order while you soak up the sun. The marina is a good jumping off point for boat hire or day trips on the water.
Benal Beach Apartments will leave you plenty of spare cash for fun holiday activities while you enjoy the sunshine of the Costa del Sol in one of the coast’s best family resorts.
