This lovely and extremely affordable hotel is about fifteen minutes from Estapona and at the foot of the mountain range. It is close enough to enable you to access the coast should you wish to or to explore further into the mountains. It is also a short drive from Malaga airport.
Benahavis is a small village with a good selection of bars and restaurants and is within a short walk of the hotel making it easy to pop out for the evening if you don't wish to eat in the hotel restaurant itself.
The hotel is large and has good sized rooms with all the facilities you would need. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are spacious enough for you to stay for a while without feeling cramped. The hotel grounds are lovely and there are two pools to sunbathe round. Hotel staff are always pleasant and welcoming and the bar and restaurant service is good. Both my partner and I have always enjoyed the breakfast and whilst we don't generally use it there is a spa underneath the hotel as well.
There are plenty of walks and a reservoir within a short distance which is nice for a stroll.
We discovered this by accident and were glad we did because this part of Spain is mostly over-developed and far too busy for us. Instead we use Benahavis as a base from which to explore the white villages and get away from the coast. We've visited five times and will visit again. We normally pick early or late and have enjoyed visits as early as March and as late as November and still found a welcome stay and plenty of sun.
Wish they'd add free wi-fi but other than that I have no moans at all :)
