    Superb

    We had read some rather cruel reviews about the hotel which we found to be totally worng. This is a great hotel which offers real value for money. The rooms are a great size, very clean and with balcony. The hotel pool is fantastic - far above 2 star rating. Breakfast was fine; we did not eat at the hotel asides breakfast. There were a number of elderly guests but it definately did not feel like an old folks home as suggested! Furthermore we read complaints about the speed of the lift - this was not a problem and the entertainment not being provided in English - also not a problem.

    Hotel was great, no complaints. Benalmadena itself is full of tourists and the food/entertainment is very much set up for this. This is not an authentic Spanish beach resort.

    Fabulous

    Friendly clean and adequate accommodation for two,although not much room to spare with a third bed in for our grandson,but spotlessly clean.the food was simple,and plenty of it.I Liked the fact that you could have either lunch or dinner on the half board option,which gave you greater flexibility.

    Very good

    good location, friendly and helpful staff, nice room balcony. good value/money.

    only 2 small lifts for a 7-floor hotel! remember to bring your a hair-dryer and shampoo - it's a budget hotel after all!

    Close to the beach as described. Reception open all night, handy if you have a late flight like us. Clean rooms.

    A few members of staff were friendly, but many were the opposite and spoke little to no other language than Spanish. Breakfast is cheap, but still not worth its money in our opinion. Cheap products that don't taste good at all. Served is a super noisy breakfast room with too little space. Very hard mattresses on the beds.

    Superb

    Good location (near the beach), excellent food on the breakfast and dinner. Clearing room every day. Friendly, helpfull staff. Good price/quantity! Wi-fi free in lobby.

    Not wi-fi in the room. Bad choise of tv channels ( not russian,british) a lot of spanish pensioners (very noisy).

    Very good

    Room was of adequate size and with a reasonably sized balcony complete with table and chairs. Bathroom was also adequately sized. Tv had english speaking channels (Sky and cnn). Air conditioning provision which was essential with the temperature at my time of stay.

    Charge for the safe in the room. Tv could have been with a bigger screen. Inconsiderate fellow guests who were noisy returning to the hotel at night, and sat on their balcony thereafter chatting and laughing, etc. The disco, the beat from which could be heard in my room. Hotel website shows the location of the hotel in the wrong place.

    Fabulous

    My room was lovely,clean,bed very comfy.The refuse was a bit of a pain & the collection thereof,visible & noisey.My view was just beautiful as my sister knows yr hotel & suggested where I should request my room.I Was suprised of the lack of hairdryer,kettle or fridge for water particularly.All staff were charming & helpful at all times. I did like the gardens,patios & pool

    Sorry as I mentioned above, just the refuse collection & noise caused by this each morning.

    Exceptional

    I came over here because my daughter was in icu in xanit hospital, was not sure how long I was staying for, the hotel staff were very kind and helpful, and left my room available for as long as I needed it. Very grateful to the staff! The hotel is friendly, clean and comfortable and right near the beach and main tourist area, plus only 10 mins drive to hospital.

    Location

    Some staff very rude, over run with school parties of children some of whom like to spit from the 7th floor, Food very poor, restaurant is more like a free for all in a school canteen, no staff come to your table to ask if you would like a drink. Noisy and bad mannered pensioners. Only Sky news on tv. People reserving sun beds with towels etc. No room in swimming pool due to school children parties of what seems like upto 50, No vending machine, when the bar shuts you can not even get a drink of water.
