Location is a long walk from Benalmadena centre and the marina. Too l8ng to walk with young kids. Shame because the std of bars /resturants in the vacinity is only average and there isnt much atmospherecin the locality. That said we had a car for the week which is probably the best option if staying here.
Rooms are small. Described as one bedroom apartments but in reality the bedroom is more of a bed in an alcove with shutters dividing it from the rest of the aoartment. Kitchenette is also small. Double sofa bed is not recommened for sleeping if u value your spine. Best to treat this as a single and sleep on it in as a sofa much better. That said the rooms are well appointed, very clean and in good decorative order. Have programmable air con. Sat tv with bbc itv sky news.
All staff are very friendly and helpful
Oasis terrace resturant serves excellent if pricy lunch food
We stayed b&b breakfast is a buffet consisting of deep fried pig products and tinned/preserved fruits etc. Only ok I guess.
Supermarket onsite is large and well stocked
Pool area with huge jungle gymfor the kids is the real plus. The area is very attractively laid out, pools were spotless. Best pool area I have seen by far, Happy kids = relaxed parents!
Free Wifi is only available on the reception level (6) in the bar. This overlooks the pool area so it was possible to connect by the pool. Ocassionally I was also able to connect from room balcony (floor 6)
Overall we had a great stay - its a pity the hotel is not walking dist from the center - but dont let that put you off
