Thanks CB - had a wee look but not sure where the bus stop is in Montemar area ?? would it be on Timor Sol level? - we are couple streets back in Imperial Puerto! .

But (main reason for posting) we are travelling with 3 kids and the travel discount card would be great http://www.ctmam.es/noticias/265 . though do you think this might only be for locals or could we apply if staying in area for 2 weeks - seems to apply to both train/bus services! Would mean a massive saving for us.

Anyone can get the discount cards, just wander along to the bus ticket kiosk by Benalmádena Tourist Office (about 10 mins from the Sol Timor). You don't need a card each.

The bus stop for the Sol Timor on the new service is Melia Torremolinos (the hotel isn't there any more!).

I thought the cards you get from office near tourist office in Benalmadena just gave discount for bus journeys. This one seems to be for bus and train. Although would be easy enough to stick just to buses if getting discount.

They dont get you any discount on the trains, but you can use them to buy your tickets with. Handy if you havent got change or the machine hasnt got change, as it wont take notes if its low on change.

There isnt really a practical station handy for Polynesia.

The nearest one is at Torremuelle but you have at least a mile to walk, and there isnt a taxi rank at the station. You can also get off at Carvajal station, which is the 1st stop in Fuengirola, again NO taxi rank and at least 50 steps to negotiate with no lift or escalator. Impractical with luggage.

If train is a must, best to get off in Arroyo/Benalmadena station and get a taxi from the rank at the side of the station (always taxis waiting). Taxi from Benalmadena around 10€ or so for up to 4 of you.

Taxi direct from the airport would be around 30€ for 4 passengers.

Also consider shuttle transfers with www.travelrepublic.co.uk or the like.
