Royal Oasis Club at Pueblo Quinta
Ranked #15 of 45 Hotels in Benalmadena
Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeadersGold level
Reviewed June 5, 2010

This review is about Royal Oasis (Pueblo Quinta), NOT about HORRIBLE Benal Beach on the other side of the road (single owner for both locations). Have been to both of them, so have direct comparison.
Now, for Royal Oasis. Been here in February, returned in June, will return again. Room is actually an apartment, with one bedroom, separate saloon, bathroom and fully equipped kitchen (microwave, oven, dishwasher, washing machine with enough washing powder for a single laundry), typical "bring your own food and cook it yourself". TV with lots of English channels, also DVD player and stereo set (bring your own CDs). Spa on site (didn't use, though), gym, small swimming pool (actually, not really suitable for swimming), less than 5 minutes to the beach. Paid internet available, AND a free one in local bar (just buy something and ask for wireless code). Parking is not available, but you can park on the street, just next to hotel. Cleaning is once every two or three days.
Some people might complain about bird noises (there's a little park nearby, on the other side of a busy road), but actually road itself is louder, not to mention grass mowing at 8am (darn that gardener) - that was my only complaint.

As for Benal Beach - avoid. Will post separate description on another TripAdvisor webpage.

We stayed for a week at this condo. The location was great and the sea was steps away. However, when we checked out of our room, we stayed on site for a few hours because our plane left in the evening. Within an hour of checking out, I realized I left my new converse sneakers in the room. I went back to the room and it had already been cleaned. The sneakers were gone, obviously stolen, and the management (front desk) was not of any help, but were they were also nasty and rude.

The hotel is within walking distance to Benal beach and several resturants. A local park, Parque del Paloma, is across the street. It's a pretty park but can be noisey early in the morning when the sprinkler systems turns on and the roosters and chickens start stiring. We used the local near by bus stop to get to Malaga and Ronda. That worked out just fine. The condo was relatively quiet and clean.

There were three of us in our mid twenties who went to this resort to relax. We were able to request twin beds in advance which was great however we were informed that our apartment would not be a newly renovated one. The apartment turned out to be gorgeous however, very large for a one bedroom, with a full kitchen including oven, dishwasher and washing machine. The lounge was fully equipped with a hifi and dvd player which was great for the evenings. Our apartment looked right out onto the beach and enabled us to have our breakfast in the sun on the balcony.

Benalmadina isn't the classiest of destinations however this resort is located about 20 mins walk from the nightlife meaning there was peace and quiet and it was a much nicer/ safer/ cleaner location. There is a very large park/gardens right behind the resort which is lovely for sunbathing/ chilling out in. Behind the gardens up the hill a bit there is a classy high street with upmarket restaurants and shops.

Reception were brilliant and we were able to travel to Mijas, Malaga, Benalmadina (old village) and Marbella all by local bus. However we wish we had been warned about the blanket trip which we went on which was very disappointing, misleading and wasted an afternoon of our holiday.

The resort also had an indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna which we made full use of in the slightly colder weather.

Benalmadina is connected to the airport by train which is considerably cheaper than a taxi, a taxi from the train station in benalmadina to the resort is around 6 euros or there is a 20 min downhill walk which isn't too bad.

I stayed at Benal beach through a timeshare and the rooms was 5 star standard. The pool area was lovely but very little for smaller children although there is a park facing the hotel. No hotel entertainment. In a quiet area 15 min walk from the main area of Benalmadena.
