I stayed here as a party of 3 for a long weekend at beginning of July.
Our first impression was good, a helpful gentleman checked us in & gave us the option of a room on either the lower or upper floor. We chose lower since this meant our patio door opened up right at the pool. The room was nicely furnished, the kitchen area perfect for self catering & the only initial downside was the hotel had omitted to make up the 3rd bed.
Things went downhill... the breakfast in the gloomy basement was awful. There was no bread or rolls at all on our first morning & it required a trip up to reception for basic food to be put out. The fruit came from tins, the fruit juice was like diluting juice & most tables were left with dirty cups/plates etc as there were no staff clearing up. We decided to avoid dinner in view of the poor quality of breakfast, despite being half board. If you are self catering, the supermarket is only a couple of minutes walk downhill.
During our 4 day stay, our room was never cleaned once. The staff at reception gave the impression you were interrupting them if we asked them to call a taxi, mind you the fact they doubled for serving at the bar or the pool bar or were outside having a cigarette break didnt help.
This hotel is situated opposite the railway station, in a residential area on the outskirts of Benalmadena. A taxi to the marina is 10€, or there is a busstop 10 mins walk where 3€ would get you to the main strip.
One final point, the pool is very small considering the number of rooms & there is also not enough sunbeds.
