The only minor drawback is that the kitchen only has a two burner hob, which could be restrictive for a bigger family.
The living room would be slightly cramped for a bigger family but was fine for 3 or 4 adults. Bedrooms were fine with comfortable beds. The bathroom was excellent with plenty hot water. My hard to pleease wife had no complaints with the washing machine.
The fridge was roomy with a reasonable sized freezer compartment. The apartment is on the end of the block with windows in the gable.
This gives plenty of light to all rooms unlike the other apartments in the block. Windows have shutters that would be a bonus in hot weather. A major bonus is the large veranda that is a sun trap that has lovely views over over the beach to the marina. While it is located above shops and restaurants, it is remarkably quiet even at busy times. We chose the period with the worst weather in years with a lot of rain. Despite this, in February and March we only had an oil-filled radiator on for about 5 hours in 6 weeks.
What sets this apartment apart is its location. It is an easy stroll to shops, bars and restaurants. The nearby Supercor supermarket is open 24 hours a day and has a good selection of UK papers. The tourist office and bus booking kiosk is a min stroll. The Bono ticket is well worth buying if you intend to do more than a couple of trips. It costs about 2 euros and reduces fares by about 70c to 1 euro for most trips.
It covers more than one adult and speeds up boarding the bus. The lady in the kiosk is very helpful too. If you are over 60 and likely to use the train, buy a "Targeta D'Or" pass. It's valid for a year. We saved 16 euros each on a trip to Seville.

She said how can you trust someone who has an Apartment online. Who is to say it exists or will be there when ye fly out. So I said it was better to put up a Question on the forum and see what people come back with. Just to advise that if you are looking for somewhere lovely to stay then the Marina is beautiful.. It is mainly the Spanish, however they do speak and converse at a higher volume than most lol.. What time of year were you looking to book. Although the marina is lovely by day and night, in the summer months unless you're staying on one of the islands, it can be very noisy at night.
We always thought the Marina would be a classy place to stay but never thought of the noise factor from the Bars and clubs in the area. The website mentioned getting into the Apartment by a stairs opposite the Sea Life Centre. We are in our 30's but want a quiet holiday. That is why we were looking at this option rather than a noisy Apartment block.
Well not only will it be noisy then July and August peak season but it will be very hot as well, usually around 40 degrees during the day and still around 25 at night, so make sure it has air con as you may need it :D especially being from chilly old Ireland hehe.
Sea Life is a little more out of the way, but you will still have the revellers walking around all over at all times of the night and this time of year is very popular with the Spanish holiday makers where they hit the coast for their breaks.
It is a tough call really, it would also depend on how well insulated your windows are. Where i live all i hear are scooters all day long haha!! I obviously do not want to sway you against your trip altogether, but to arm you with the correct information from which to make an informed decision that you will ultimately be happy with.
We haven't been out there with a few years and want to go back this year. Other years we stayed in Bajondillo Apartments in Torremolinos but we are only going for a week this year so want to stay Benalmadena Area this time.
