This is a nice hotel but a little bit of a walk to the shops and restaurants. The staff was great, friendly and helpful. On-site parking and a great breakfast buffet for the money. If you are a light sleeper, this may not be the hotel for you. I stayed on the 11th floor and could hear people talking from the other end of the hallway because there is no carpet in the hallways to absorb sound.
Very good facilities and good bars and restaurants opposite. Only a bus ride down to all the other bars etc....and great bars in the beach front opposite the 'flag' roundabout. Try the rodeo steak house...
Easy to find near beach. We found free parking on road as it was off season (November). 4 star but we did not eat there. We used kitchen facilty in room a lot. Supermarket nearby for cheap but nice Rioja wine. Staff were always friendly and helpful. I printed my Ryanair return boarding passes courtesy of the hotel staff. I booked a double but did not realise it was for single beds. I booked in a rush but did not recall an option to say we needed a double bed for me and my wife.
I did use the pool once for a refreshing November swim but the sun was still warm enough in November for me to doze off in a sun chair amongst a number of beached whales.
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.
