Hotel Best Benalmadena

Reviewed August 8, 2011

The hotel had was lovely and very clean, the reception staff where very helpful and a quick check in. After reading some of the reports i was slightly worried about staying here. We had very little complaints about the room a good size and we and an amazing view of the sea. On our first night at the restaurant they had the entertainment staff on to greet us with a flower for the ladies and a small glass of cava for the adults. The food was always warm and there was a very good choice. If you couldn't find anything to eat then you must be a fussy eater (which i am and always found something to have). Most of the staff where very nice and helpful we did experience some problems with bar staff at the pool, serving Spanish guest before us but after a few days they began to recognise our faces and we got served slightly quicker.
We didn't use the hotels indoor facilities such as gym, spa hairdresser etc but had a look at them and always seemed to be in use. Staff also had fitness classes on in the morning which looked great fun. The pool however was a bit small and at times over crowded esp with children, the children's pool was very small and could understand why they used the main pool.
We didn't sit through the entertainment every night as it was mainly aimed at Spanish holiday makers but we did enjoy the live music and the flamenco dancers on two of the nights. It would have been nice if the hotel had catered for non Spanish holiday makers for some of entertainment.
The hotel is slightly further from the marina and solymar square than i thought a good 45 min to hour walk away, bus stops are outside hotel and are very reasonable 1 euro 30 to marina and bus run i think every 20 mins.
The beach was only a few mins walk away , or you could walk down the beach just in front of the sunset beach club you where able to take part in water activities.
I would also recommend heading to the marina and go on the dolphin cruise, a very bumpy ride but worth it, you see quite a few dolphins swimming and jumping along side the boat.
I would stay here again as i had a wonderful holiday and would recommend hotel to anyone.

The staff were amazing, always willing to assist you where ever possible and great service, rooms cleaned everyday and i would definately come back again. There is a bus stop directly outside the hotel in which you can get out and about. I would recommend all inclusive as the drinks can get expensive especially when you're out and about. Theres also a great chef in the restaurant who will cook fresh fish or meat every night xxx

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view and high floor

After reading some pretty harsh reviews about this hotel, I was wary of staying here. Some of the reviews, criticized; staff, elevators, food, pool and cleanliness.

However, theses could not have been more wrong! When we arrived at the hotel at approx 11pm we greeted by the very welcoming and friendly receptionist, given our room key and all inclusive bands. We then went to our very spacious and clean room on the sixth floor. We didn't have a full sea view, but a partial one which we were elated with.
Every day the pools were kept immaculate with fresh towels given. The food was also another highlight of our holiday. There was an astonishing choice of food, to accommodate all readers, the food was tasty, hot and the service in the restaurant was utterly flawless. The hotel is only a 2 minute walk to the nice beach- however the sea is cold! The pool in the hotel may be slightly small for the size of hotel, but the water is refreshing in the heat. Also, it is open to late at night.
We had an all inclusive package holiday and it was ideal! Every meal, at the same restaurant, with different food, also the drinks were quality products like Pepsi and 7up. Also, toasties, hot dogs and burgers were all available out of restaurant hours. We were travelling with two teenagers so they loved the fact that you could walk in to the bar and get ice creams and ice lollies all day!
We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at Best Benalmadena and would recommend the hotel to anyone- families, couples or solo travelers!

Hope this helped :)

Have just had 5 nights all inclusive here with 3 friends to celebrate my birthday. We found all the staff helpful, friendly and always smiling. Myself and one friend turned up later than expected due to problems with the flight. Our friends checked in earlier and got thier key, we turned up later and were given the key to the second room,no problems at all.
We found the food great every day, lots of choice at breakfast and dinner - lunch we just had from the pool bar as they do toasties,burgers etc. Drinks all fine and no problems two of us getting everyone's drinks from the bar unlike in other all inclusive hotels we've been too.
All in all a great holiday,the only time we left the hotel was for a couple of nights out.
Would definitely go back and recommend this hotel to people of all ages.

Four of us English men have just come back from a great holiday at this hotel, l'd been reading all the reviews in the months leading up to our holiday and I must say I was a little worried,DON'T believe all the bad reviews, it is a Spanish hotel but is great. Everybody who works here always said hello and always had a smile. The food was great, couldn't believe the selection, and once again always a smile and very helpful in restaurant. It's a family hotel and the entrainment is catered to the Spanish but they try get all kids involved. We found it so nice we didn't want to leave so are now going back in 4 weeks time :) the beach to the left of the hotel is the best one, plenty of places to eat and drink but if your all inclusive as we were you won't be leaving the hotel much. We all have nothing but good things to say about this hotel,even though we were loud and drunk at times the staff would always smile and laugh (most likely laughing at us. lol) cleaners always friendly and helpful, the list goes on and on. Thanks to everybody at this hotel for a great holiday. See you all again soon :)

We stayed here for 10 nights all inclusive, as the other reviews say the food can get a little repetative but there was always something we could find to eat. The hotel was fully booked and 90% were Spanish but it was fine at least wed didnt have to have a mad scramble for sunbeds although those who did place towels had them removed, which I thought was great. The rooms are lovely and spacious and cleaned thoroughly every day.
We had a sea view which was lovely. The location is good right on the beach which wasnt too busy and bus stops right outside the hotel which run very frequently. The only gripe I have is the entertainment it is absolutely rubbish! The only tv channel we has was BBC World news, not very good. The dining room could get a little mad, if you dont go down early you have to queue that is for all meals. The bar was good serving some branded spirits of which you have to pay an extra euro which isnt too bad. There are a couple of bars on the beach Luna Beach and Salitos both lovely bars and only a few minutes walk. The swimming pool is very small, we used to wander down to beach was much more refreshing and quieter!!!!
