This hotel is excellent for a relaxing holiday but it is not in Benalmadena - it it quite a way out out of Benalmadena in Touremuelle. It is no good at all for people with mobility problems as it is up a very steep hill from the bus stop. If you get the train outside the hotel to Benalmadena it is also a very long walk to the sea front once you get there. Bus is 1.45 euro and train is 1.65 - both very reasonable.
We had one week here from 13th September on a B & B basis and really enjoyed it. If you find your way under the main road bridge there are two local bars which both sell excellent food which is not too expensive. My husband and I had a mixed grill for two which was £24 and we were really full up afterwards. The hotel breakfast would not be to everyones liking as it was not a typical 'Full English' exactly the opposite in fact with several different hams, and cheese. there was sliced bread and a toaster and bread rolls with butter, marmalade and jam. Lovely fresh buns and biscuits, fruit juice and coffee. We enjoyed it every morning. The staff just leave you alone to help yourself, I cannot comment on the evening meals as we always ate out.
The reception staff are excellent and their English is very good, we never had to ask for anythng to be repeated.
We spent one day in Fuengirola and had a lovely time at a Spanish tapas bar down by the marina. It was so relaxing not to have load music blaring our at you. The tapas was authentic and not like some things that pass for tapas in Benalmadena. They aslo sold large beer in just 1 euro.
The rooms in the hotel were more like apartments with a seperate bathroom and kitchen, a large balcony, the beroom area, and a settee, coffee table, & TV - although this only had Spanish channels we managed to see some of the european football one evening !
Half of the balconies get the sun in the morning and the opposite side get it in the afternoon. The pool is quite small but there appears to be plenty of sun beds. There is a bar in the hotel but a small can of San Miguel was 2 euros and you can buy one for 60 cents in the english supermarket down the road. We have nothing else booked and it is back to work on Monday but, I would definately come back to this hotel again.I will be adding photo's when I get sorted out....
