Lovely friendly, clean hotel, great for the kids and entertainment most of the day :)) the food varied every day and was always very nice, anything not available the reception will arrange for you to hire.

We spent a few night at this hotel at the beginning of our Oct. we were looking for a few days away for our wedding anniversary & the travel agent suggested this hotel. To look at, the hotel doesn't look very nice, the reception area is very dated as you enter. What I can say is that the staff are exceptionally helpful & friendly and can't do enough for you. The rooms, whilst basic are spotless. It's a great base for getting out and about. The food was not to our taste but to eat out was cheap and as we didn't pay over the top for our holiday we were happy to eat elsewhere. There is a charge for sun loungers but meant that you could get one at any time & didn't need to get up really early to reserve one. Would come back to this hotel if I ever go back to Benalmadena.

Stayed 6th Oct for a week. We arrived late but the reception staff were friendly, checked us in quick and as we were staying half board told us we could swap evening for lunch meal if we wished. We swapped our last days as we were leavin before Dinner was served at 7pm. The room was clean, balcony over pool area which got sun most of the day. Rooms cleaned daily and women who cleaned rooms were always friendly. The hotel is mainly spanish but the staff didnt treat them any different. The grey haired barman is very abrupt as stated in the ther review but I never had an issue with being ignored at the bar. The entertainment was mostly aimed at sanish but generally was repeated in Englsih. Only stayed in one night for a Parrot show which was entertaining. The hotel was closing the day after we left for the winter and doesnt re-open until April which is surprising as it was very busy.
The pool area was nice and clean and the beds are 2e a day. which means theres no fighting over them and no towels out at 6am! Food was tasty and changed each day, with an italian and chinese themed night. Although if we had took my nephews I think they would of struggled with something to eat as the only 'kids food' was burgers, pizza and chips all week.
I would stay agin if we could get a cheap deal.

Room Tip: The bar just outside is very friendly and seems to be full of the English from the hotel, but is qui...

Well it was a grade three hotel so you will always get what you pay for in our opinon it was a very clean hotel and the surroundings were great the staff were mostly friendly the food was great if you ate Meat and Fish needless to say Im a veggie still the director was very helpful in making sure I had something especially prepared for me every night, as I said early our room was basic but allthe towels were changed everyday and there was not any dust about as the beds were moved everyday. The entertainment was geared towards the spanish who out numbered the british, The general age was a lot older than us in our 40s still we had a great time in the sun weather was exceptional in its 90s on 4 days a bit of mist with low cloud on a couple of days but this gave us a rest from the sun, loads to do with boat trips days out to Gilbrater great food all around San Miguiel Euros1.50 sprits a bit more expensive great duty free, we even brought a fantastic suitcase for only Euros12 would had been at least £45 great bargins.The hotel in situated at top of hill which has been named Cadiac Hill but this was not a problem even thou I suffer with Asthma great for getting your heart going. would go again...The down side was the bed was a bit hard and gave us a back ache after a week and we had to get out of our room by 11am even thou our flight never left Malaga till mid night,No fitness gym at this hotel
