Fancy a stay in one of the Costa del Sol’s most stylish resorts but without a super-stylish price tag attached? Take a look at the Minerva Jupiter Apartments, a great value self-catering complex right on the door step of Benalmadena’s beautiful sea front.
The complex is big and sprawling, spread over four buildings, but that has kept the height down, with nothing over 10 storeys high. And with mountains to the rear and the Mediterranean to the front, all units here have great views. Even if you can’t see it, the beach is just a 10 minute stroll away. The main resort centre’s around 2km, and there’s local shopping and entertainment in the village atmosphere of Arroyo Miel.
There’s a choice of room style at Minerva Jupiter. One-bedroom apartments have a living area, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen with microwave, fridge and freezer, and a balcony. Studios also have balconies American-style kitchens and a balcony. Up to five guests can comfortably share a one-bedroom set-up. Stumping up a bit of extra cash on arrival will secure you a TV and Wi-Fi access.
There’s a pool on site, but Benalmadena’s beaches are one of the resort’s biggest attractions, each one of them – including one of the Costa del Sol’s only nudist beaches – well supplied with beachfront bars and restaurants.
The marina is a hub of holiday activity, a great place for dining, a starting point for boat hire or boat trip adventures, and home to one of the resort’s many family attractions, The Sea Life Centre. Further inland, the La Paloma Park has become an animal sanctuary that children will love, while mum and dad relax in one of the park’s two bars. Stretch your legs for a walk to the Selwo Adventure Park, another animal park with a good selection of favourite creatures like dolphins and penguins.
Benalmadena is friendly and welcoming, great for families, couples or single travellers, and has grown into a top quality destination in recent years. Minerva Jupiter is an excellent way to enjoy this upscale resort.
