“Good value for money”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Me and two friends stayed here in July and we were not expecting much as we spent the minimum amount of money possible. But when we arrived the staff wrre very helpful and let us leave our luggage locked away as we could not check in till later. The member or staff spoke amazing english and gave us all the directions to get to places. Supermarket is a 10 minute walk and regular markets not far away. The hotel was clean, nice big room and never had to fight for a pool chair.

The location isnt brilliant, there is no shops of restaurants nearby that are very nice but the bus stop is right outside and costs pitance to get to the centre.

We had a brilliant time and I would definitely go back!

Dear customer,

Thanks for trusting Fisrt Flatotel International for your holiday. As you comment our staff is highly qualified and provides our guests with personalized service and quality. Our hotel is in a quiet area of Benalmadena Costa, perfect to spend some time relaxing, but with the ability to reach in few minutes by bus downtown entertainment district. We hope to see you soon with us.

Kind Regards,

Myself and two others went to Spain for a weeks golf and stayed at the Flatotel Internacional in Benalmadena Costa. We had a two bedroomed Apartment with living room, kitchen and two en-suite bathrooms. The bedrooms and living room were quite large. The staff were very friendly and efficient. There was a cleaning service most days. There is a very good Bar in the Hotel. While the Hotel is at the end of the Benalmadena strip there is a regular bus service (€1.55 to Malaga) and the bus stop is right outside the Hotel. Overall a very good experience and I would use the Hotel again.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor for less noise

We have just returned from five nights at the Flatotel. This was a last minute trip on a budget, we just needed some autumn sunshine.
The staff were very efficient, friendly, and helpful on both check in and check out. Our room furniture and fittings were a little tired but it was very clean on arrival and cleaned twice during our stay.
The breakfasts at this hotel were on the poor side. An English breakfast was two fired eggs, two pieces of bacon, one frankfurter and some baked beans. Needless to say we only had one breakfast in the hotel.
The pool area was good. Nice clean pool and plenty of loungers. Unfortunately the pool bar was not open during our stay, but the barman in the main hotel bar was very friendly and helpful.
Even with the tired furniture and the poor breakfast, given the price we paid, I think this hotel is very good value for money.

The beach directly at the front of the hotel is sandy, some previous reviews have reported that this is not the case? It is definitely course dark sand. There are stones in the sand but it is definitely not a stone beach. It is actually very nice for snorkelling with some large rocks close to the shore.
There is also the Benalnatura naturist beach, a five minute walk heading west. This is a lovely beach for getting an all over tan, with a bar at the bottom of the steps as you walk down to the beach.

There are plenty of places to eat in both directions along the cost. You can walk to these, or 1.45 euros each gets you most places on the bus.

All in all a very nice trip.

Stayed for 5 nights and it was excellent again we were checked in quickly and efficiently by Beatrice who was as polite as ever , Aziz in the bar/kitchen/restaurant looks after everyone with ease, the shop at the hotel is still closed and the bar and kitchen will be closed from November till February which is a shame as we would like to go back between them, will defiantly return again

Just back from our annual golf trip to the Costa Del Sol and our third stay at the Flatotel. We have always found the rooms to be exceptionally clean, large and excellent value for money. The views are superb and the staff helpful and friendly. We will definately be staying there again next year. I agree that it is out of the resort but a bus stop immediately outside and 1.20 euros to get into town or an 8 euro cab fare sorts that problem. Went with 16 golfers this year and everyone said they wanted to stay there again next year, which says everything.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room as they are enormous and have fantastic dual aspect views

Dear customer,

Thank you very much for recommending our accommodation. As comets Flatotel International is one of the best value options of Benalmadena. The location is perfect for a few days of rest, next to the golf course and the beach and with a bus stop nearby. We would love to see you again in our facilities.

Just arrived home from a 3 night stay at the Flatotel. Staff very friendly and always will to help. Rooms cleaned everyday.We stayed in a 3 bed apt for six adults and they were very spacious, clean and well equipped. Bar food was very good but the brealfast was a disgrace which is puzzling seems the bar food was so good. Bus stop just outside the hotel and easy to get taxis ordered as well from reception. Just outside the town but would definatley go back. Overall experience very good.

Room Tip: Views from 6th Floor excellent.
