“Amazing Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

I stayed here for 2 weeks in August 2013 it was the best hotel in Benalmadena I have ever stayed in, the staff in the hotel are very friendly especially the waiters/waitresses, I am a very fussy eater and the food was amazing every night it was something different and there was a lot to choose from. The hotel is in the perfect location with a less than a minute walk to the beach and the marina, lots of shops and restaurant near by. Can't wait to come back to this hotel in the future.

Early January is the most dismal time of year in the UK.
Easy Jet from Liverpool (possibly the best airline in the world definitely the best airport in the world) to Malaga. Get train from airport to Los Pinellas station it costs 1.5 euros, saunter down hill and reach an oasis of a hotel.
We received a beverage on arrival and the keys to the room even though we arrived early.
Selection of food very good indeed and the wine selection and price very good.
Clean and cosy. Free Wi-Fi.
Cava for breakfast on Sunday!
Essentials such as ATMs and little supermarkets are 100 metres away. The hotel makes you feel safe.
To return to airport by taxi is 25 euros.

The only fault with our weekend stay at this hotel was the wet miserable weather, the hotel can't help that one!

Great room, food very very good. Overall a brilliant stay. Wanted to stay again last weekend in August, price double to what we paid for January. Understandable but too pricey for a short weekend break.


Will be back next January though I would have thought.

I stayed at this hotel with my mother and daughter at the end of October for four nights. The hotel is quite close to the airport. On arrival we received a complimentary drink, which was nice. We only received one key for the room, would have preferred two. The room was nice size overlooking the pool on ground floor. Beds were very hard and a old mat was under my mattress. No kettle in room had to hire one. Buffet breakfast and buffet dinner in the evening, you had to pick a sitting of 6.30 or 8.30 and had to stick with that sitting for the duration of your stay, also the table you were given to sit at on the first night was where you had to sit at for the rest of your stay. The food was excellent and to be honest you could eat too much.

The pool was very extremely cold, I didn't mind this, but it was too cold for my daughter and mother. The hotel is close to the beach, and we went down each evening. You could get a very good massage for €10 on the beach. The area is very nice, very pretty. Lots of boat trips touting for business. Nice restaurants and usual shops. Really enjoyed our holiday, hotel was very good, but need to improve the standard of the beds. Also the entertainment wasn't great. But it is nice and quiet hotel, good for a relaxing break.

Enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Excellent location and away from busy roads which meant no traffic noise.
I had emailed the hotel to ask for a high floor room with sea/pool views and was given exactly that. The room was well appointed and very clean. We felt that the rooms need sound proofing as you could hear any the noise in the corridors. The wonderful shiny marble floors did nothing to keep the sound down, but looked good.
The food was very good with good choices at each sitting.
The staff were all very friendly and attentive and overall we considered we had value for money and will almost certainly return.

Room Tip: High floor with pool/seaview.

First time stay in this hotel and first Christmas and New Year away from home. On arrival we were greeted by a smiling receptionist and offered a glass of champagne which was very welcome. Quick and efficient check in and our request for a high balcony granted. Room 314. although no sun had a view of the houses and mountain and most of all very quiet. The hotel is in a perfect situation for both Benalmadena and Torremolinos also taxi's, supermarkets and bus service all close by. Receptionist all very helpful especially when asked to make a call to our tour operator. All waiting and bar staff even though very busy always had a smile and a word for us and their efficiency was much appreciated especially Christmas and New Years gala dinners. Big thank you to Rafa, Isobel, Anna and Fernando,and Walter the drinks waiter. A big appreciation to all the chefs and their staff for all the wonderful food they prepared for us. All of our meals we enjoyed immensely, food always hot and displayed well especially the wonderful salad bar. Just to clarify the turkey we received on Christmas Eve was a breast with bone removed and stuffed with a delicious stuffing and rolled. Must thank our maids they did a wonderful job in the rooms, very clean and may add that they too were always smiling and always said Buenos Dias, Que tal. Muchas gracias y hasta la vista. Will be booking again for Christmas 2014. Must just add on last comment made friends of all nationalities at this wonderful hotel. Wishing you every success for the future Mac Puerto Marina.
