Upon arrival at the hotel check in was swift and we where at our room in no time. When we arrived at our room it was clean and look pleasant but the sofa bed which me and the wife had to sleep on was shocking for a 4 star accommodation. We had to be near the cot for the baby and the bedroom was to small to fit the cot in. We should of asked for a room change but where not like that and we just tend to get on with things.
Breakfast was nice, entertainment at the hotel was okay on some nights shocking on others. It was mainly older couples and family's which suited us. Happy hour at the bar is between 18:30 and 19:30 make sure you use it because drinks are very over priced. The outdoor pools where to cold for the time of year we went but there is a indoor one but only open for the kids between 12:00-17:00. Not sure why because not many people used it in the mornings.
We never sampled the hotel restaurant in the evening but it looked nice enough. Restaurants around Benalmadena are a bit pricey but some are nice some are shocking the Chinese round is to be avoided. The Indian up the street is spot on. It's about a 5-10 min walk to the beach where all the restaurants are. I'd recommend trying Manwells best restaurant we went to. Marina is a decent walk about 30 Minutes and has a selection of posh restaurants and some grottey ones
It was a good holiday but we won't be going back to use this hotel.
