About Mr B Thompson
We were lucky enough to buy this property quite a few years ago and have made lots of changes over the years. In 2017 new aircon has been fitted in each room, we had a new bathroom fitted with rain shower head and attachment over the full sized bath, new kitchen with ambient led lighting. New beds with orthopedic mattresses have been put in all apartments. We enjoy doing something each year to all our apartments. In January 2018 we retiled the apartment all the way through and it looks fantastic!
Mr B Thompson purchased this Apartment in 1984
Why Mr B Thompson chose Benalmádena
We chose this property for its central location, close to all amenities and local transportation. The apartment gets afternoon sun which we enjoy. The apartment is in a quiet residential area of the resort but close enough to the hustle and bustle of the popular Ibensa and Bonanza Squares.
What makes this Apartment unique
Getting afternoon sun every day is great as you can enjoy a traditional sangria on the balcony or a nice cup of tea. You're in a quiet location of a beautiful resort where you can do absolutely nothing or keep yourself busy every single day. The complex is close to all amenities and us in walking distance to the wonderful Marina, local train station and Ibensa and Bonanza Squares.

Many thanks for your review. It was a pleasure to welcome you to our home from home and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay and liked all our little extras we provide for our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
Great hospitality from the owners throughout our stay.
We had a marvellous stay in apartment 203 where everything was perfect. It has recently been renovated and we were the second Guests in and we could see the owners Barry and Claire had put much thought into everything from the fridge full of goodies on our arrival from the milk for a cuppa, beer to refresh us and bottles of red and white wine we both enjoyed on the balcony. There was plenty tea, coffee, sugar and hot chocolate to drink as well. Although we didn't eat in much as it was so cheap to eat out the kitchen was very well designed with full oven, hob and cooker hood, microwave with grill, fridge/freezer and a brilliant washing machine that had a great fast wash cycle. The beds were better than we have at home and mattresses lovely and thick and crisp linen sheets and large fluffy towels and on arrival we had towel art on the bed and a nice touch of a chocolate on each pillow. The bathroom was amazing with a rainforest shower, towel warmer and there was plenty of hot water all day every day. There was a tv in the living room and one of the bedrooms and it was great that we could watch different channels at the same time. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony most days although two days at the beginning it was rainy! We thoroughly enjoyed Benalmadena and walked our feet off as everything was close at hand. We went to Malaga on the train a few times and found the city welcoming and will definitely go back when we return to Benalmadena again. The public transport is frequent and timetables easy to follow and the fares excellent. We shall be returning again and as we are now retired will hope to stay for six weeks each stay and want to come over four times a year as we like to get away as often as we can now and enjoy our retirement. Thank you Barry and Claire we can see how much hard work you have put into apartment 203 and it was great to meet you at last. You really do go that extra mile and now we don't want to stay anywhere else. We shall be in touch shortly.
Beautiful apartment which we stayed in April then again in September. The apartment is immaculate clean and all furnishings and fittings are of a high standard . The owners Barry and Claire we met and they are friendly and really care about their guests. Lovely little touches cold beer in fridge when we arrived and a guest hospitality tray . The apartment is home from home and all you need are your clothes . There is even body wash and body lotion supplied. Both myself and husband will only stay in this apartment in future as there could not be anything better .
Thank you for your review. Your review us about another of our apartments you stayed in and not the one advertised on Owners Direct, but we still want to thank you for such a nice review.
It was lovely to meet both you and your husband on your recent stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
FUTURE GUESTS PLEASE NOTE THIS REVIEW IS ABOUT ANOTHER APARTMENT WE HAVE IN A DIFFERENT BUILDING. Thank you!

There lots of great tapas bars in the resort and we recommend trying El Refugio at Edificio Cielomar. For quality tasting cocktails try The Snug also at Edificio Cielomar. Also there is The Harp Bar where you can get delicious meals at excellent prices.
