I said after our visit last year I'd never revisit this hell hole but last night we were walking past and wondered if it had changed, so 3 of us walked across the road and noticed it has definitely changed, yep, it's even worse.
We were surrounded in seconds by as many as 10 touts all shouting and trying to get us into different places, we picked the first dump on the left to get away from them as much as anything, at this point one of the touts with outstretched arms started blocking our way and trying to prevent us walking away, others followed you every step of the way shouting over each other and generally being hostile and aggressive. We had a drink of what tasted like battery acid which came under the guise of vodka and left pronto. On the way out of the square it was much the same, almost having to fight your way out of it. The authorities really need to get a grip on these people, the beautiful place of Benalmadena is being tarnished by this lowlife and believe me, I'll never ever visit this square again. We are veterans of 50-60 foreign holidays and have been to Ibiza, Tenerife etc and although the touts are pushy there, this place has crossed the line and has become aggressive and intimidating. Avoid.
