“Lovely facilities ... but a bit far away”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

Stayed here for a friends stag do - along with 23 other guys
We had the suites in the Holiday Palace building at the very top of the hotel area.
Rooms were very nice, clean and offered kitchen and very spacious bathroom
Bedrooms had 2 large beds joined together and plenty of storage space
Food was average, as you would expect from a hotel buffet style serving - but a plentiful choice
Choice of pool areas is excellent (i didnt make it down to the waterpark / play area but by all accounts it is excellent)
Only real downside is the distance away from Benalmadena - actually closer to Fuengirola. Taxi ride to marina or 24 hour sq can range from anywhere between 15-25 euro depending on how "dead on" your taxi driver is.

12 of us went to this hotel for 2 weeks 9/6/12 to 23/6/12. it is one of four hotels built on it's own grounds - security starts at the entrance to this large complex. The hotel itself was excellent, clean, and all the staff very friendly and polite. The rooms were very spacious and cleaned every day with fresh towels, and toileteries supplied. When booking this holiday you need to go all inclusive, i booked through travel agent but talking to some people there they reckon they saved over 2,000 booking on-line. The only complaint i would have is that it is between Benalmadena and Fungerola and you need to get a bus to get there to do any shopping and if you have young teenagers that need night life they have to get taxi to and from different areas which can be costly enough between 15 and 20 euros a pop. Daily games were great fun but limited night entertainment that suited a small few. But overall we enjoyed our holiday.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the front which was quite nice

Weather was great hotel rooms spaces and clean how ever if u enjoy walks around shops and bars don't stop here its half hour walk from any where!!!! The food is below average and found myself micro waving every meal as it was cold. Pool and beach club was ok kids loved it but which kids don't . The entertainment at night was shocking kids disco started at half nine and bar next to it didn't open while ten and when it did there was one person on it so u had to wait to get served!!!!! The shows and singing was mostly in Spanish I would strongley not recommend this hotel to anyone. To sum it up I wouldn't be returning or recommending this hotel to anyone having been telled by travel agents it's great for kids and families NOT

Good holiday, spent 10 nights here and was initally dissappointed at how far out it was as no where to walk to for a stroll with the kids but once we got into the routine of the hol we had a great time.Beach club is good, though thought there would have been more slides, wave pool was too rough for my little ones age 5 and 1.
Rooms were well equipped, huge balcony and bathroom and maid service was good.Pool area could have been kept cleaner but bar staff were fab with the kids so that made up for it!
Food was average but we were all kept satisfied at each meal time so can't really complain.
