“Great Quality - Thanks Vueling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

We ended up staying in this hotel due to a flight cancellation in Malaga, which ended up being a great 24 hours. We got a junior suite in a low floor with sea view, and all meals included. We were happily surprised by the quality on rooms, service and food. We are looking forward to coming back. Thanks Vueling!

Excellent location with wonderful rooms, the buffet they offer is mouth watering and the beach view rooms are give you a perfect view. The only draw back is the hotel can be filled to the brim during the spanish summer which makes the dining area a little crowded.

This hotel was booked for me, and I'm so glad! Great location right in front of the beach, wonderful rooms with a decent view of the ocean, nice bathroom. The beds were a little bit rough, but the food made up for it. What a wonderful buffet setup they have! I enjoyed both the breakfast and dinner buffets, and was not disappointed. So much to choose from, both hot and cold. Omelettes made to order...DELICIOUS coffee delivered right to your table! Of all of the places I've had coffee on my Spain trip, and of all of the fancy machines and coffee shops I've frequented, I'm still thinking about that coffee. I love that they've also tried to incorporate a gym, though it is lacking (4 machines, weights, 2 benches). I did not have the opportunity to get into the pool, but it was a hot spot, so I figure it must've been good. I did patronize the towel service, and brought a towel down to the beach. And let me not forget the staff. When I visited my room, it smelled as if someone had just smoked a whole carton of cigarettes. I have a huge aversion to cigarette smoke (I can't even stand to walk behind someone smoking, so imagine the trouble I had when every other person appears to smoke!), so I went back to the front desk to ask for another room. They were very helpful, they put me in a temporary room (the last one) and then gave me another room the next night, and even let me "test drive" the room to make sure I was pleased with it. When I think about my whole stay, what more could I ask for? From start to finish, I had a great experience. I would stay here again!

I spent five nights in this hotel and the overall evaluation is very good.

1)Rooms-->they are spacious and clean. We experimented a problem with the wifi connection but they succeeded in resolving it. The bathroom also is quite big.
The rooms didn't seem to be soundproofed in fact we could hear almost everything from the corridor.
The only thing which I didn't appreciated it is that sometimes my room was not serviced by the housekeeping until 2 o' clock..I know that they say that the room will be serviced from 9 to 17,but after lunch I am usual to rest in my room and I'd like to have it serviced by that time.

2) Position-->it is located right on the paseo maritimo!when you get out from the hotel you just have to cross the street and you are on the beach. The city center is quite close to the hotel,you just a have to do a nice walk through some local stores.
In front of the hotel you can find several bus stations and also a taxi one

4)Meals-->there are two restaurants in the hotel: the proa,which is a la carte restaurant and it is very pretty and nice. The buffet restaurant: located in the same place of the breakfast room, this is a buffet restaurant and it's a amazing,you can find almost you can desire from paella to hot ad cold buffet and deserts at the rate of 23€ per person

3) Breakfast-->the breakfast room is located at the swimming pool level and it is spacious and luminous;) there is almost everything you can desire: from deserts to ham and cheese.

4)Wifi connection-->it works very good in the hotel hall and garden. I could also connect my device from the beach on front of the hotel...amazing.

5)Swimming pool-->very nice and it is useful the towel service,the only problem is that it is small.

I'm totally satisfied and I suggest anybody this hotel.

We have stayed at this hotel several times and find it very convenient. All rooms have sea view, but ask for a room on a higher floor and towards the front of the hotel. The standard rooms are functional and have everything you need.
Service at check-in is friendly and efficient and the great plus of the hotel is the wonderful breakfast buffet. You find everything you may want to eat or drink for breakfast, freshly-prepared omelette and cava included! It can get very busy if you go around 10:00, so try to get there a little earlier and you'll be impressed with the huge selection!

Room Tip: higher floor towards the front, we prefer the west (Benalmádena) side

Stayed at this hotel for the first time in many years on a weeks half board. Still the same great hotel.
Clean,both rooms and public areas.
Great food, varied, interesting and plentiful.
Great staff, happy and helpful.
Only one comment.
We never had a problem getting a sunbed round the pool as most people do tend to go to the beach.
However a few more beds wouldn't be a bad idea as some people did have a problem.
Also the use of chairs and the way people moved the beds around just makes the place untidy!!!!
Apart from that a few small bottles of CAVA in the mini bar would be a good idea. That's a personal thing I was on my holidays after all!
Well done Melia Costa Del Sol
