Just returned from Holiday Palace and it was an amazing hotel. Firstly and most importantly this is not a Brits abroad style hotel. This is a Spanish hotel full of Spaniards with a small group of British/Irish so it is very much aimed at the Spanish clientele. It is a very nice 4 star hotel with very good facilities and very large suites. The rooms are massive and are cleaned everyday with new towels everyday and bedding changed about every 2 days. The food is exceptional but its a Spanish hotel so the food is very much aimed at the Spanish so if you like your Sunday Roast and your "fussy" kids only eat chicken nuggets its probably not for you. The all inclusive drinks are very good and some brands are available AI but crisps, slush etc aren't. The pool is a strange experience as every day at 10am there is nobody at the pool so there isn't the usual fights for sunloungers probably due to the fact there are so few Brits but come about 3/4pm the pool becomes very busy and stays busy until 7pm. The hotel is in a compound with 3 other hotels who's facilities you can use but your AI isn't transferable. The waterpark is about a 5 minute walk downhill but there is a shuttle bus that runs about every 10mins during the parks opening hours. You can use your AI for drinks at the waterpark but you have to book to use the AI restaurant. The hotel is a few miles from the main tourist area of Benalmadena but there is a bus from opposite the main gate and cost €1.55 or €11 for a taxi.
In conclusion this is an amazing 4 star hotel but as I said earlier its not a Brits abroad hotel which is what I was looking for when I booked.
