“Great budget break!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Situated in quiet area of Carihuela with a 5 min downhill walk to lovely shops, restaurants, bars and beach. Handy for walking into nearby resorts and for buses and taxis to go further afield. Very clean, friendly hotel!

The staff are friendly, especially the man behind the bar! The hotel is very clean but careful of the slippery floors! We asked for a double bed when booking but got twin beds instead but we loved our room overlooking the pool that we just pushed the beds together. They were quite comfy but needed extra pillow. The toilet flush didnt work but didnt report it as we didnt want to change rooms, we just took the lid off to flush the loo that way. Very small fridge at a cost of 2.50E for the whole stay but safe was 2.50E per day! We had air con in our room which was handy. Of course only Spanish stations on TV so we only used it as background noise. Not enough sunbeds around the pool, they really need more if they want people to stay there for the day. We only had B&B and the breakfast was ok. They had continental, cereals and basic fry up though i found the eggs overcooked! But it wasnt horrible. Yes the road is slightly noisy but we are used to that at home anyway so we found it easy to sleep even with the door open until we were woken by a very loud crunching and smashing of glass sound which i think was a truck collecting rubbish? Scared the life out of me! You do hear the drain now and then. Free Wi-Fi in the reception though if we sat on our balcony, we could still receive it! Supermarket to the right of the building and a ten minute walk downhill to the beach. We would personally stay at this hotel again but wont due to the area. There wasnt much around to do anything for us, especially in the evening. We would go somewhere more lively but for what we paid, it was great. Please feel free to ask me anything if you wish to. Ive attached photos (sorry for the messy beds as almost forgot to take that view just before leaving!).

Room Tip: We were happy with the room we had, far corner overlooking the pool but if you want it to be more qu...

Fantastic staff at this small hotel,you get what you pay for and it's great value for money. Very clean and breakfast is great. Not many sun beds around the pool but you wouldn't want too many as it's not massive,but as it's on grass all you need is your towel.
Take a hair dryer as the hotel doesn't have any in the rooms but they have 1 at reception to borrow if you ask.

Central good location basic but clean and friendly. Bar area disappointing and uninviting . asked for extra pillow which I never got and toilet flush broken and although reported never repaired. Breakfast was however lovely with an excellent choice, pool area also nice but very limited space and sunbeds.

Took the family for a visit. Good hotel in good walking distance of benalmadena marina. Found the stroll into torremolinos to long for the kids, but easy cheap bus service. Rooms very clean and staff helpful and polite. Would recommend.

We stayed for 4 nights in the middle of June , we choose hotel after reading the reviews on trip advisor and decided to go for a cheap basic hotel in good location instead of the usual all inclusive larger hotels we usually go for.
The rooms were basic but very clean and a good size. We requested a double bed but got twins our room was in the front ,very noisy and as other reviews say the door didn't shutting so we slept with door open it was slightly cooler ,noise no different with door open than shut, beds very comfortable , bathroom good ,it would have been nice to have had a mirror in bedroom and hair dryer ,we didn't have a fridge and weren't offered one or any air con although these were saiid to be in room on hotel web site,
The men at the hotel were very helpful and friendly especially the gentleman who worked in the restaurant at breakfast.
The pool was good but the area around it was dirty and the few sun beds broken,
The location was good and price we paid was ok however we wouldn't stay again because of lack of sleep from the noisy road it could be a very good hotel if the new owners spend some money on soundproofing and sun beds

Room Tip: Choose room at back if you want any sleep the traffic is constant outside until about 2am

For the cost this hotel was fine for our requirements, the negatives : the food (we were half board) wasn't great but it was only £20 more than b and b so we chanced it, we did have 3 evening meals there! The food is edible but with so many places to eat go b and b and spread your euros around! Lack of Sunbeds around pool (although I believe this is being rectified) and if you have a late flight no facility for a shower/change etc we requested a late check out but they could not accommodate this even though we offered to pay and it appeared no one had the room
Positives : the location was perfect in a great area, we walked miles left and right but found the area near the hotel spot on, loved the pool it was cleaned daily, the lady who cleaned our room (105) was brilliant and very pleasant (thank you) as was Thomas on reception, Ana. (Co owner) didn't really know how to take her appearing unfriendly and a bit stern one day and smiling and friendly the next. Our room overlooked the road and first floor so right where other reviewers have complained about noise, traffic, people talking, manhole covers and parrots (get the picture) the 'noise' wasn't an issue for us..............
More positives than negatives and the biggest positive 'location' outweighs most things, just a point........we paid £250 each for flights and half board 8 nights ........... a guy we spoke to in a sea front hotel paid £250 for an upgrade to a sea view room................you get what you pay for folks and I was very satisfied.............adios
