hotel has lots of plus points but a just a couple of bad ones too. Location is ok but a little bit far out from shops etc.Had to cross a busy road to get to the beach too, bit of a hassle with 3 young kids but there are crossing points along it. The hotel facilities are great, kids club was fab, food in restaurant was lovely and staff were great. We were disappointed with our room, not really 4* more a 3*. The room was pretty small for a family of 5 as the cot was wedged between the window and the bed and there was nowhere else it could go.When we arrived it didnt really feel clean (there were clothes tags in the wardrobes and an ear ring by the bathroom sink).There was no electric kettle just a teapot on the hob? The cooker had no markings so it was a bit trial and error to begin with. None of this put us off though as we really didnt spend a lot of time indoors and the cleaning improved throughout our stay.The pool area is great both outdoor and indoor and our kids cried buckets when we had to leave. Would recommend to families as the hotel really focuses on kids, the short, steep climb up really is hard work with a buggy so i would not recommend to anyone with walking difficulties. We will be back.

just back from one week stay at Ben Palace Hotel. We had a great time. We travelled with 2 kids. 3yr and 1yr. The entertainment was great for them. We had our breakfast every morning. All you wanted to eat. Indoor pool, jacuzzi, sanua, Hairdressers.
The Hill was big but when you cut through the car park it was fine.. and we had two buggies every nite/It helped work off all the meals out. We went to sea word, marina at nite lovely, Tivoli very good value. not too far from hotel, Over all i would recommend. Another thing dont take a room that is built in the roof as you wont have proper balcony and you wont be able to see. That was my only gripe with my room. Our room was cleaned every day, lots of towels every day. Def recommend and would consider going back.

just got back from staying at belamadena place and I wish I hadn’t of left - the hotel had excellent facilities and the rooms was cleaned everyday which is really good and the maids leave sweets and fresh towels. the staff are friendly and are multi-lingual there is activities on every day from shooting, archery, football, run by a guy called Patrice who is excellent, and had a genuine passion to want you to enjoy the activities put on by the hotel, there’s a steep hill leading to the hotel which is a bit of a killer to walk up but ok going down, I was apprehensive before we left as I read some bad reviews on this hotel, but realised after staying there that some of these people are just professional moaners, and will have a moan even if they were staying at the Ritz, I would go back there without any hesitation.

This hotel if first class. The pool area is spacious and well laid out although someone obviously had a sense of humour when they designed it as it looks from the air like a...well you get the message.

The hill up to the hotel is quite steep and not for the elderly. The bar and outside seating area is first class and there was entertainment every night with facilities for kids during the day.

The food is first rate with plenty of choice
