Just got back from a five day, last-minute, mum and daughter (age 20) fab break at the Benalmadena Palace.
Have never been to a big complex before and were a bit sceptical having read some of the reviews but couldn't fault it at all.
From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have been more helpful. They were all extremely polite and accommodating with perfect English.
Apartments were clean, well maintained and equipped plus excellent maid service. We moved apartments after the second night as the original one had a double bed and we'd requested twin beds. It was on seventh floor in the eaves, with sloping roof - not great for two tall people - and no view from balcony unless standing up, but staff were happy to moves us to an alternative room with twin beds when one became available. Second apartment was great, overlooking pool and terrace.
Pool area was clean and well maintained although whilst signs around pool said sunbeds should not be reserved towels were out at the crack of dawn!
Although we didn't eat in the hotel in the evenings the menu looked varied and there was a full programme of entertainment for adults and children provided by enthusiastic staff.
Location was great - far enough out of town to be quiet, but five minutes from local supermarket, just an easy 10 minute walk to the promenade with bars and restaurants and a 30 minute walk to the marina. The final few yards to the hotel from the main road are up a very steep hill but didn't cause us any problems (before 11pm can cut through the car park which cuts out half of it!)
Transfer from the airport was easy. 20 minute train journey to Benalmadena (1.55 euros each) plus five mins in taxi (8 euros) from station to hotel.
All in all a fab five days with the added bonus of temperatures of 35 degrees!
