My wife and i were there last week Aug/first week Sept (meant to write this review sooner!). First the good news: very comfortable beds, clean, well kept rooms, effective air-conditioning, central location. Bad news: poorly kept poolside area (scraggy lawn, worn-out, uncomfortable sun-beds), not-so-friendly staff, smelly, rubbish-strewn approach to hotel entrance. Mostly Spanish families there, who kept to themselves, so...

First time at this small hotel just outside the centre of Benalmadena.. Very close to the beach, shops and restaurants and for anyone who enjoys promenading perfect for a 20min stroll to the marina and centre of the resort. The interior and rooms are immaculately maintained, and although not the Ritz, this is a pleasant place to stay. Meals are...

The hotel is tucked in a street behind the main promade road with smelly public litter bins only yards from the main entrance and the facade is far the...

I stayed at this hotel recently and would have to say that I found it to be spotlessly clean, conveniently located near the beach, with buffet style meals available which consisted of good quality basic food. Staff were more than pleasant and helpful to me. The clientele consisted mainly of Spanish and were very friendly. The only negative thing I...
