Just back from a lovely week in Benalmadena. The San Fermin was everything we wanted it to be. The weather in October was gorgeous - pool or beach every day. We are two 50 something ladies, so this hotel and location were perfect. Approx 15mins in a cab from the airport, great local bus service to get us around, 10... More

This hotel is not aimed only at British/Irish people. It also caters for Spanish and French visitors. So you should not expect to find your usual collection of poor English beers/lagers etc that you may find in nearby hotels mainly catering for Brits. Nor should you expect all the staff to be speaking fluent English. We found the staff very... More

I should have checked the reviews of this hotel first. This hotel is 95% Spanish clients, consequently everything is geared up for them. We were full board for one week but ate out most evenings, they do not know how to look after any other nationality. You will be charged for sunbeds, fridge and beach towels. We were told the...

1. The food was luke warm. But there is a microwave to warm it up. 2. The hill up to the hotel is a killer. They don't call it cardiac Hill for nothing!! 3. The staff need a lesson in politeness. A smile costs nothing. 4. Entertainment needs to be a little more English. 5. More staff serving at the... More

We liked it here, if you want a quiet holiday. Loved Benalmadena. Next time we will pay a little more and go for one of the hotels on the front. Spoilt it whilst walking back from the beach etc. Evening meal very poor, staff not very friendly. We went B and B which was ok and sufficient for our needs.

we stayed in this hotel for a week on half board basis. The food was awful so we ate out most nights. The staff are not very helpful. We were charged 2 euros each daily for a sunbed which were tatty and broken. When I asked why they charged for beds I was told because there were over 300 guests... More

We travel very often. This has to be one of the worst hotels we have stayed at. No smiles or courtesy at reception. We are with a tour group and dislike the military style organization of the dining room. Food is typical pre purchased, cost saving, cafeteria food. Room is clean and room service is good. But, the ocean views... More
