I booked this holiday with a discounted voucher so was a little sceptical, however was pleasantly surprised.
On arriving I found the reception staff warm, friendly and accommodating. Room was not ready on arrival, so decided to tour the grounds, whilst we were able to store our baggage in a self contained area.
Supermarket, hairdresser, gym with sauna all within the complex and all relatively cheap considering facilities on site. The gym was not included in our stay, so there was a daily price of 5 euros per day to use facilities.
Outside pool area always well maintained throughout the day and really clean.
Buffet style breakfast available at 9 euros per day. I thought this was expensive, so opted to stock up from the supermarket and cater for myself.
I would have visited the restaurant for dinner, however chose not to as they only served english meals and I wanted try the local cuisine. So decided to venture out everyday.
The location is also great and takes approx 40 mins from Malaga airport by bus which costs about 4 euros each way and in addition drops you off right outside the hotel.
Torrmelinos also only about 10 mins away by bus and is 2 euros. I decided to walk and that took about an hour each way, so make sure that you have comfortable footwear to do the trek.
I also visited Fuengirola and again bus stops right outside hotel - I loved everything about Fuengirola and it's def worth a visit.
My only complaint is regarding the walls which appear to be paper thin and you can hear everything. In addition if you are trying to sleep and tables or chairs are being moved in apartments next door or above / below this can be a pain.
I would really recommend this complex to anyone with preferences being on the top floors requesting a sea view.
Also please be aware that Diversified Resorts also known as RCI operate from this complex and may try to sell a timeshare deal to you.
I went along to the meeting for 2.5hrs and have to say that I was impressed with the package they offered, as it really seemed to good to be true. I could have quite easily signed the dotted line sitting on the balcony, served fresh coffee with the beautiful sea views in front of me. However decided to do some research beforehand and just as well I did. Sales Staff not happy with my response that I wanted to check out the net first before handing over my cash and it was only then I saw the other side of them - not a pretty sight.
Still I would not let that put me off visiting the complex again as it really is good value for money.
Finally I forgot to mention that the room was cleaned daily and the ladies did a great job.
I would recommend this package for families, friends, and also Solo trips.

I have made a note of your comments about the noise from tables and chairs being moved. Although in many cases there is little we can do about this (other than to ask guests not to move furniture at unsociable hours) we do have special protective felt covers which we place on the legs of furniture, the only problem is that they often fall off and need constant replacing; this may have been the problem in your case. My apologies if this caused you inconvenience during your stay.
I have also forwarded your comments to Diversified. Although they are a separate company, we do work closely with them. I assure you that we take this type of comment very seriously and do not condone this behaviour; once again my apologies.
I am glad your overall impression of Sunset Beach Club was positive and hope to welcome you back again soon.
