We arrived and were pleasantly met by friendly hotel staff. I must admit the staff at this hotel were helpful, polite and accomodating. Our room was well equiped and throughly cleaned each day and here is my main complaint in our room... "the air conditioning", this was terrible and produced a waft of cool air making no difference to the heat in the room. We found sleeping at night unbearable. I even had cold showers during the night to cool down. We found spending time in the room awful even with the patio doors open there was no escaping from the heat of the day,Therefore we felt drained and tired over our stay.No part of the hotel was properly air conditioned .The pool was so crowded and the usual lack of sunbeds. By 2.00pm the pool water took on a murky look and ball games prevailed with several people being hit in the face including myself ( the lifeguard did nothing to stop this). Food was varied and most of it freshly prepared at cooking stations. In the evening there was not a seat to be found so we headed into town. The train station is within easy walk and we went out for several days, there is a brilliant market in Benalmedena plus the cable car is worth a trip.We would not go to that hotel again due to the air/con problems and too many people for the facilities.
