I went here with my family and friends for new year as I do every year. We now have many friends at the casbah. The rooms, distance from beach and overall hotel are amazing. Staff are all so kind. The rooms are better than average and get cleaned everyday. The pools both indoor and outdoor are clean and great and the overall cleanness is amazing. I have been coming for years now and I still love it! I would recommend this hotel!!!

Stayed: December 2013

Renovation work inside complex roadworks outside: awful, we did complain but apart from an apology from the receptionist got nowhere. Apart from that brilliant apartment and staff so it was doubly diss appointing about the noise. Restaurant not cheapest but really nice food.

We rented a two bedroom apartment at the rear of the complex in September 2013. My Mother had chosen the resort as she had been previously and liked the fact that it was easily accessible from the airport by public transport and that there is a good selection of restaurants within walking distance. The aprtment was well equipped but had a very small kitchen and the lounge has no privacy if it is being used as a third bedroom with the sofa bed. The balcony was very narrow and made negotiating meals for 4 outside difficult. We were at the quieter end of the complex just out of high season but it was still very busy. The main pool was always crowded (even in cloudy weather) and our smaller pool was almost as bad. It was also the site of the kids club which made it a bit noisy during the day. Our haven was the roof-top sun terrace complete with jacuzzi which was only accessible by the apartments in our block. It was always quiet and a great hideaway from the hustle & bustle. We prefer to relax on holiday and don't really get involed in 'activities' or 'organised entertainment' but I think there was plenty on at the main pool. There was also an indoor pool, gym and hamman spa (which was lovely).

The staff were all lovely and remembered Mum from her previous stays which she appreciated. The on site shop was well stocked and reasonable but there are supermarkets within walking distance. The beach is also just a short walk away (over a very busy road) as is the lovely municipal park (complete with peacocks, rabbits and exotic butterflies). I am not a huge fan of Benalmadena as a resort, it is very 'British', the shops are mainly geared to tourists and the restaurants on the front are quite overpriced. There are however a few gems and the sunshine and sea will always make up for the negatives. The Dolphinarium in the town is just the other side of the park and is a great attraction, the shows would complete with any Sea World display. I am sure the Sahara Sunset competes with any other complex in the town and there is certainly something for everyone, just make sure you request a private sun terrace if you want a quiet relaxing holiday!

Room Tip: Request a private sun terrace!

What can I say - this was an amazing place to stay. The whole Sahara Sunset resort was top quality, from check in and reception through to every last detail. Beautifully maintained, everything had been though of. Our apartment was huge, very comfy and had everything we needed. The balcony was very spacious and plenty of furniture and lovely sea views. The kids dared to go in the outdoor pool on the warmer days (it was only February!) and we used the fabulous indoor pool every day - excellent facilities, vigilant lifeguard, wonderfully clean. Location is perfect, just a couple of minutes to the beach and promenade, and a short walk up the hill into the town with great bakeries, bars and cafes, and the very efficient railway to Malaga and other resorts. We had a great trip to Montemar with it's brilliant playground (play areas in the Paloma Park v close to the apartment were also ace). Can't fault it for the price we paid, so clean, just perfect and our towels and linen were changed frequently which was an unexpected bonus. Book now, you definitely won't regret it! Thank you!

Great hotel. Our 4th visit. Great facilities. Spent ages in indoor pool and jacuzzi, on mini golf, childrens playground and at kids club. Our kids really liked Mirriam and kept drawing pictures for her!
Rooms are good sized and have everything you need. Very clean. Nice welcome pack of basics such as tea, coffee, milk, tea towels, washing up liquid, etc.
Location is great. Paloma park is excellent for children. Great playgrounds, animals to feed, lovely cactus garden.
Within easy walking distance of marina - the kids loved feeding the fish bread! Easy walking distance to supermarkets.
Thinking of going again next year. We love this hotel, particularly out of season when you have everything to yourself.

Took my Mum to this resort for a short break. Facilities and amenities in this resort cater well for people with disabilities. Staff couldn't be more helpful. The apartments are excellent. Well located for beach, shops, restaurants and bars. Would recommend.

We were allocated a fantastic apartment, fitted out with everything you need for a short or longer stay.

Two things I would mention though, first if you have mobility problems, then make this known when you book because this complex has many, many stairs and even if you're on yhe firts floor, due to the design of the comlex you have to go up and down several flights of stairs, so if you are disabled to any extent then you must ask for a ground floor apartment - there are several scattered aroud the pool area.

Secondly, although we had paid in advance they would not book us in unless we could produce a credit card ! This presented a problem as I never take my credit cards abroad ( less temptation that way ! ) and although I offered to leave a substantial "euro" deposit - for quite what I do not know - this was still not acceptable. We were told the "system" would not book us in without a credit card ! Fortunately my wife had hers so it saved us having to sleep on the beach ! This may well be their policy and that's fair enough but it's not made widely known when you book. We booked through Travel Republic and this credit card thing is not mentioned anywhere.

Room Tip: Remember your credit card !

We regret to read that our card policy was not mentioned to you at the time of booking. We do rely on our partners to pass such information to guests and we are sorry if this caused you any disappointment. We hope that you had an otherwise pleasant time however. Please come back again in the future!
