Found this bar by chance and what a cracker it is. This is mainly down to the personalities of the staff mainly Shane and Emma they make you so welcome from the minute you arrive.

Benelmadena, Costa del Sol, Spain. Just along from Malaga. Buddy's Bar is located in Plaza Ole off the main coastal road next to Best Triton hotel.
