My wife and I have just returned from this hotel. we stayed a week with our 3 kids (12 to 7). This is a good family hotel but is not for couples. we did notice several couples during our stay and they definitely looked out of it. The hotel is situated quite a distance from Benalmadena and Fuengirola in the...

We visited this hotel in April, 2 adults and 1 six year old. Booked on the internet and got a good price for 1 week half board. But if the price you pay reflects the quality, then it certainly applies here. The hotel is located half way between Benalmadena and Fuengirola, but as others have stated this has its benefits....

Whilst I would agree that this hotel provides very clean accomodation in moderately sized rooms and the public areas, both within & without the building, are very good I could not endorse others' comments re: overall rating. Simply the food during our stay could at best be described as barely average and at other times as revolting. Still the Spanish...

I read all the reviews about this hotel, and was a bit dubious about its location. We have a young toddler (1 1/2 years old) and if we wanted to go anywhere we had to get the bus. However the buses were always on time and were cheap, but its a bit of a struggle everytime with a buggy and...
