“Great hotel not great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2012

Great hotel has everything very clean rooms small but has everything there was four of us 2 adults 2 teenagers we found beds comfy but i hit my leg few times of metal frame few times trying to climb in.it can be very noisey with people above scraping furniture across floor and kids jumping and the nose of a compresser all night, we rented a car from hotel very easy they did everything for u we went to Gibraltar well worth it . We got a phone call saying welcome can we pop down with a bottle of champers for picking our hotel woman was lovely and we took champers she arranged us to visit her in the morning( timeshare ) didn't go but still drank the champers ha ha x all over great hotel but didn't like where it was situated .

2nd time here and have to say it was great again. staff very friendly and helpful. sea view room was great. pull out bed was a bit of a disaster as it was very uncomfortable. got an extra mattress and this helped.hotel has everything that one would need on site. lots to do during the day and the staff at the pool are great and try to get everyone involved in some activity.can get very crowded in high season. just a tip for families with older children,as you enter the pool area go left for a sunlounger as the kiddies pool is to the right and. this tends to be much noiser and busy with smaller kids.would come here again but it will probably be a few years yet.

I stayed here for four nights in June. I had paid extra for a one bedroom apartment with an exterior view and my "view" was of the very busy and noisy road at the front of the hotel. I understand from other guests that with an interior view you were looking across at another balcony, with a gap of only 5 metres between both! The room itself was tiny, particularly the bedroom which was like an oversized closet. The kitchen was also quite small but to be fair it had everything that was needed. The bathroom was mid-sized and included a pretty good shower. Plenty of storage areas, both for clothes and luggage. The rooms were cleaned daily and indeed the hotel in general was well maintained. It seems to be a terribly noisy hotel and as a result it was difficult to sleep. You enter the hotel on the sixth floor, the pool being located on ground level. The hotel itself is enormous and seems to have a limited number of lifts as it was always a minor struggle to get one. There just seemed to be too many people for the provided facilities. As regards it's location, it is on the western edge of Benalmadena, right on the beach.

Room Tip: When asking for an exterior room make sure that they give you one overlooking the rear of the hotel...

Firstly on arrival, me and my boyfriend were allocated an 'interior' room, even though we had specifically requested a sea/mountain view room prior to arrival. We made our way to the room, and as expected, the 'view' from the balcony was non-existent, facing 2 more rooms opposite and a rather attractive looking air vent system which made an awful droning noise. On the plus side the room was spotless and was fully equipped with every utensil possible!
Another downside of the hotel rooms is the fact that there are two single beds in the bedroom therefore we ended up sleeping on the double sofa bed every night.
3 nights into our stay, we enquired at reception into moving rooms which they later informed us that another 'brighter' interior room was available. The second room was unbelievably better than the first, with the balcony overlooking a pleasant courtyard. As we were on the end, we also had managed to sneak a view of the sea, BONUS!
The poolside was busy every day as expected as it is a very family orientated hotel, although we never struggled to find a sun lounger, even when heading to the pool after 12pm. The pool itself did get very busy with children splashing around with water guns, especially crowded into the shallow end of the pool which made it difficult to just go for a dip to cool off.
TheTiki bar at night was always quiet and lacked in atmosphere if you wanted to go for a drink so we only visited once. There are plently of lively bars situated near the Marina allthough it can get very annoying with people pestering you to come in 24/7.
The supermarket in the hotel had an excellent selection of products at reasonable prices and great fresh bread.
Overall the hotel was very clean and had everything we needed, although probably more suited to families rather than a young couple.

Room Tip: Beware when booking through an agent, make sure you don't book an interior room, unless you are...

This hotel has a good standard. Hotel area and rooms are well taken care for. And If you like the sea, this hotel is practically on the beach (public one).There are lots of activities and programs arranged for every type of guests: children, teens, adults, seniors...All day long. The pool area is quite small and very growded and noisy. There is lots of services at the hotel (shop, fitness room, beauty salon, inhouse doctor...) We had a car and appreciated a possibility to park the car in the hotel's garage. Rooms are ok, abit small, but we managed with 2 adults + 2 teens, becouse we did not spent too much time in the room. Teens slept on the sofabed which is not comfortable. Although hotel itself is ok, the area is a bit dull. In the evening time you have to take a bus or taxi to find some nice restraurants or shops or just to take a nice walk for exsample at the Puerto Marina area. Summa summarum, we were very happy with our room facing the sunrise, beach and Benalmadena Costa. But next time we will choose a hotel closer to the village center.

Room Tip: If you like to be in the middle of everything and see what's going on at the pool, ask for pool...
