This was our first visit to the Triton Hotel in Benalmadena and was not dissapointed,We stayed over Christmas and for the last Five years we have stayed at the Siroco hotel which is nearby.Had a change after reading the reviews on Trip Adviser.The Triton hotel at Christmas seemed to cater for the 'Saga ' Holidays but that didn't bother us as we did our own thing.
The food was excellent and the rooms large of which they were cleaned spotlessly every day.The entertainment was a bit hit & miss,and the hotel lacked christmas spirit but remember we were in Spain and they do not celebrate Christmas like we do !
The weather for the time of year was exceptional with the sun out every day.Would definately recommend this hotel but always ask for a pool view,as the other side of the hotel is in the shade most of the day.

Looked great in brochure and location, weather and service all lived up to expectations. Above all, The Triton was great value for money. However, I travelled in November and discovered that the hotel was full of senior citizens and, from the UK, Saga is the major tour operator (offering a 4 for 3 week AI deal). This adversely affected the atmosphere and feel for me. Evening entertainment was OK but aimed at this market; the large bar/lounge was brightly lit and very crowded; not my scene at all. The food was poor, particularly in the evenings, and the dining room was simply a place to eat and get out of quick - very brightly lit, no atmosphere, definitely not a place to linger.

Room Tip: Request a room away from main coastal road. Rooms in main building have better views of the coast.

This Hotel is right on the sea front with fantastic views out to sea, lovely gardens and several pools, But be warned, if you have mobility problems there are a lot of steps if you want to go to the seafront promenade. We were there over Christmas 2012 half board can't say we were so impressed with their Christmas fare, it was the same buffet that we had every night. Try to get a room on the sunny side as the other side of the hotel looks out over Olë Plaza where several bars operate until very late and it's very noisy until around 04am and then the rubbish collectors come at 05am so be prepared for some sleepless nights.
Prices in the bar were very high for certain things, a Remy Martin cognac cot 10e and one of the personnel told me it was because the had Saga holidays there on an all inclusive package and the raised the price to other guests to compensate for that. After complaining they started to charge me 4,5e instead.

Room Tip: No handle to grip getting in and out of bath/shower which is a problem if one is aged or a little un...

We stayed at this hotel from 21st to 28th December 2012. We enjoyed very good weather with blue sky most days. Although we requested a pool view room, we found they were all taken, apparently, by people staying for 2 weeks or more. Also I think Saga had a lot of the better rooms. Room however had been refurbished and very spacious, maid service very good.
Restaurant got very congested at mealtimes but there was plenty of choice and the staff efficient and friendly. Sometimes the hot meal choices were odd - eg neck of lamb which was slightly tough, and chichen wings in some sort of sauce (never breast or leg). There was always a carved roast or freshly cooked steak or lamb etc. Good choice of sweet and excellent cheeses.
What the place lacked was atmosphere. The entertainment was below average and not what we expected at a four star hotel at Christmas. Very few seasonal decorations in view of how many English people were staying there. Not enough seating in the bar/entertainment area and some people had to stand. Bar staff (one in particular) seemed uninterested in their jobs and sometimes abrupt. We only used the bar because there were only limited options available outisde the hotel due to the season.
Pool area was very nice indeed, in fact is the best feature of the hotel with lots of sun beds and grass. However due to the time of year the pool bar was not open. I am sure it would have been busy if it had been open. We used a small friendly Carte D'or cafe right outside the hotel steps on the promenade.
We may use this hotel again in spring or autumn when there are more bars etc open along the promenade etc. There is quite a lot to see in the area. Mias is a must, also it is easy to get about on the buses and train.

Returned from the Triton with my wife after spending Christmas there from the 20th to 27th,
in general the Hotel offers everything it says and is very clean and efficient. Unfortunatly it lacks atmosphere, Christmas dinner was a `normal` meal with sherry on offer, very few decorations about the hotel it is ideal if you wish to `get away` from the over-the-top advertisimg which occurs here iin the UK. which is a bonus!
Meals were rather repetative and not too good in the evenings (breakfast v.good), drink prices in the hotel were quite reasonable at the bar and at dinner, the `bar` lacked atmosphere with the entertainment very average, unlike the other staff we found the bar staff rather off-hand with a take it or leave it attitude to the guests.
The `Park` as others have mentioned is a MUST to visit and about 15 mins walk.The Triton is in a very good location though and in the main building `even numbers` over look the pool and get most of the sun during the afternoon and evening.
It has a very International clientelle with quite a few elderly but by no means all of them.
Benalmadena provides a very good bus service on Christmas day with the street cleaners out too, most of the smaller shops etc.. were open and Christmas is kept quite low-key which after all the hype in the UK seems quite unusual
Rooms are of a good standard and kept clean every day.
Be aware that Saga also use this hotel but it is a large hotel and can easily accomodate quite a number of guests of all ages

Room Tip: Higher floor with odd numbers are generally quiet rooms
