The hotel was clean and well located (close to the beach, marina and many restaurants and bars). Two 'niggles' - the beds were singles pushed together (but they didn't stay together); and the mattresses were a bit hard.
The entertainment wasn't good at all - but maybe it's better later in the season (but this didn't bother us as we prefer to go out an experience other bars / restaurants).
We booked a 'pool view Marina room' - we expected to have a view of the Marina - but that wasn't the case - I'd still book a Marina room (as they seemed more newly refurbished); but don't expect a 'marina view'.
The staff in the bar were great - especially Alfonso.
Very nice hotel. Staff wonderful, can't do enough for you. Only downfall was that when I originally booked the price was quoted in GBP. It advised the hotel would take half the payment straight away. Once the booking was made I received a confirmation in GBP then another in Euros. The Hotel then converted the Euro to GBP and the difference was an additional £44.00 GBP making the exchange rate. £0.98 to the euro as opposed to £1.35 in the shops.
the hotel is really nice and friendly it helped by have a large end room it is on a steep hill and that was hard with children but overall the food and hotel are excellent but pool not heating and we went at end of october and even though the weather was lovely children couldn't bear the pool as it was too cold which was a shame would stay here again
Stayed for a week,with my wife,just a last minute getaway,hotel facilities are good,spotlessly clean.breakfast buffet 6 EU was good.You can get busses outside,to town,no shops nearby,or restaurants.lots of golfers stay here,and lots of stag/hen,party's at weekends,so can be little boisterous.
We had a single overnight stay here as a stay over on way to the airport - i wish it had been longer!
The hotel is immaculate and the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly.
The restaurant has fabulous views and the breakfast was one of the best we have had.
Located on the Malaga coast in the historic town of Benalmádena, Spain, the 3 star Hotel La Fonda is a wonderful place to …More
Fantastic stay , hotel rooms very clean ,with the rooms being cleaned and beds made every day ,Great views all round from balconies. Facilities within the hotel cater for all. Food very good, entertainment even better ,family's with small children and elderly should be advised by hotel staff that half way up the steep hill to the hotel is a car park that can be used as an entry and exit ,rather than people struggling up to the front of the hotel .staff are friendly and pleasant .overall great hotel for everyone.
Benalmadena divides into two discrete parts: five kilometres inland is the original quiet, traditional, whitewashed village; on the coast is the new seaside resort of Benalmadena Costa, featuring a lively glitzy marina. The latter adjoins the less frenetic end of Torremolinos, with its sandy beaches, myriad family attractions and good water sports facilities.
