“Great location on the sea front.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Just back from a 7 night stay and overall the location was perfect. Stayed on 7th floor block 3 which had a fantastic sea view. One bedroom apartment was quite dated and the beds were so hard we hardly slept. Overall the place was really clean and the outside space was nice. 2.50 euros per sunbed was quite expensive. If it were'nt for the beds I'd definately go back. O'Malleys across the road definately worth going to. Great food and very reasonably priced.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

having stayed in benalmadena several times , usually at benalmadena palace , we thought would try near marina as much more convienient . picked hotel on price and location as knew was in a great spot , at 60 euros a night b and b it was one of the cheapest hotels could find , half price of benalmadena palace . Agree with most reviews that rooms are basic to say the least but clean and reasonably comfortable , but who goes to spain to sit in a room ? location probably best in the whole area and grounds benefited from the sun from dawn to dusk (near enough ) . breakfast was good , basic choice of hot food , bacon,fried and scrambled egg , beans and odd sausages plus plenty of cereals , meats and fruits so at 5 euro a go was great value , best thing is to be able to sit by pool to eat it and take your time , going back for bits over a long period , just leave plates on table and theywill come and collect , plus take some extra fruit etc back to room (though not supposed to ) but evdryone does so u can get your lunch from it to ! swimming pool and grounds ideal , busy but not overcrowded and handy to literally step onto the promenade . evening mealooked ok also , but didnt partake and at 13 euros was good value compared to the absolute rip off prices of other places in area. having usually stayed on tbe outskirts we were usrd to paying reasonable prices for food and drink but most places in and around the marina are a rip off in tbe evening , paid 14 euros on first night for two watered down vodkas , just paying for location whereas outside hotel are couple of irish bars which are half the price and get twice as much . . In summary would say great for short to medium break where you want to be out all day , reasonable food and excellent location to get around all attractions and would defo book again for a summer break but not in the off peak as having been in winter several times the place pretty much shuts down in the evening and you would prob want to stay somewhere with indoor pool , more confortable rooms ,decent entertainment, ie benalmadena palace or sahara sunset

We had a two bedroom appartment which was very clean and tidy, but in need of updating.
The comfort factor was missing, beds were hard, but that seems to be a theme in Spain.
The hotel overall was kept clean and tidy with a supermarket in the hotel.
The location was perfect, right on the beach and in the middle of many bars and eateries.
Just a short stroll to Benalmadena Marina with more bars etc.
The only down side was they charged you to use the hotels sun loungers at 2.5euros a day this was a bit steep

Room Tip: If given a choice ask for a room that overlooks the pool to avoid the noise in the evening from the...

The reviews on Trip Advisor were very true. We have just returned from a great holiday in Torremolinos. The best thing about this property is location. It is very central and right on the beach and Benalmádena Marina is a short stroll away. we were lucky to have been given one of the best 2 bed room apartments. The people travelling with us not so lucky. If your room number starts with a 2 its fine but it if starts with a 3 ask to be moved to block 2. So many people complained about the block starting with 3.
Overall the complex is basic but fine. Pool area is lovely, but €2.50 per day for 1 bed is very unfair for hotel guests. Sunbeds at the beach from the hotel are €4.50. The beds by the pool aren't that great to rest on on. Nightly entertainment was fine, it was more about the kids than us.

Overall a great holiday but stay away from room numbers starting with a 3!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms starting with a 2

I have to agree with many other reviewers who have said "Great Location". It is directly on the beach, Benalmádena Marina is a short stroll away. As are many great Bars and Restaurants. You can spend a very pleasant few hours just wandering up and down the immaculate paved "boardwalk" coastal pedestrian walkway. The hotel is showing it's age a little, but the rooms are large and clean. We went "Bed and Breakfast" and the breakfast was pretty good, no complaints. The nightly entertainment was on par for this type of Hotel, seemed to be geared towards Children quite often. You do have to pay extra for things like sunbeds. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Some reviewers criticise staff for being unhelpful; I always find a smile and attempting a few words in their language works wonders. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who appreciates a great location at a decent price.

Room Tip: get a high up room at the front, great view of the Mediteranean

went for a quick holliday with grand daughter have benn to this part of spain many times and we found that the appartments were a little dated but of a excellent state of clendliness toilets arround pool very clean and always had soap and paper towels. The appartment was only a studio but was well layed out. The location was perfect for the marrina you could walk to tively world and many other places . Cost of taxie from airport 22 euros Only got cleane towels every other day

Room Tip: from what we saw all rooms were good
