Went back to use the timeshare in Benal Beach (Block 1, overlooking the road/beach) for another week and have to say, that 12 months on from the last trip, the complex looked very "tired" and in need of some TLC.
In terms of a location, it's great but simple little things have been neglected. For example, and I appreciate it's the end of the season, there was a large amount of algae build up on the walls in the swimming pool. I have to say that in all the years I've visited, out of season too, I've never seen this before,
Rubbish bins around the pool and in the gardens were full and it took a couple of days to empty. No biggie, as I did not plan to "drink the pool" and I still used it and I found bins that were less full to dispose of rubbish.
It's very noticeable how the staffing numbers have reduced over time although there are still some familiar friendly faces.
I find it hard to be critical about the complex ( I'm a half full type) and we've had some great holidays there w/ family and friends but from where we're at right now, I think that we'll be giving it a miss next year or though perhaps not the Benalmadena area.
I question where my maintenance monies go, however that's not a topic for a review!
Hope it helps.
