Wonderful hotel, excellent location near to the award winning marina and a short walk from a multitude of shops, bars, restaurants. Good promenades in both directions offering views of the beaches and sea. The hotel is in a prime location and a short walk to the main road through Benalmadena, with plenty of local buses, taxis and tourist information centre. The hotel is definitely worth staying at and is extremely well run. The staff, without exception were helpful, polite and nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant has a vast array of buffet food to suit all tastes and the quality was excellent. Dishes were constantly being replenished and a lot of the main course food was cooked and replenished within view. We had a wonderful holiday, with good food and accommodation and would highly recommend the hotel.
When we arrived we were asked if we would attend a welcome meeting only to discover it was a Time share meeting in which these low life tried to con us into joining their exclusive club, after two and a half hours we final got a price from them which would cost us £500.00 for one week over a trial period of five years. My husband said that didn't seem to bad and asked them; does that price include flights and airport transfer to and from the Hotel, at which they relied NO. My husband then said to them "why would we buy a weeks holiday for four years at a costs of £2,000.00 (£500.00 for one week) when this holiday costs £512.00 for one week including flights? Our opinion of these charlatan low life is; how many unsuspecting tourist have hoodwinked into purchasing holidays that were more expensive than the one they were supposed to be enjoying with no hassle. what surprises my husband and I, is that Expedia broker deals on their behalf. We will have to think long and hard before booking another holiday with Expedia. We know it is not the fault of Expedia but you should consider looking into the companies your are dealing with. They even told us that we could not return to the hotel/club because we had refused ti buy their package.
We as a family of 10 people of varying ages stayed at this hotel for 12days in October Our experience was that of being very happy and satisfied with our stay. The hotel staff without exception couldn't do enough for us, even when something in our room was broken it was repaired very quickly. The activities staff were exceptional and had us participating in sports never before attempted. The food was very good with a selection which suited everyone of us and plenty of it even although at times the restaurant was very busy. The pianist in the dining room each evening playing on the grand piano was just the icing on the cake after a hard day at the pool There seemed to be a continual maintainance programme going on that when walls were marked with guests suitcases they were painted immediately. Returning sooner rather than later.
We were very impressed with the.hotel, our suite was perfect. Food choice was very good, staff very friendly. Excellent hotel if you have children, everything catered for. Shuttle bus ran constantly up and down the hill 2 Beach World. The only negative for us, nothing else around. At least 15/20 mins drive to centre of Benelmedina or Fuengorola, 20 mins walk 2 station. No where 2 walk, hills very steep. About 15min walk 2 the beach from Beach World.
We had bed and breakfast at this hotel. Breakfast time was very busy but from 8am until 10.30 which was very good. A buffet style to cater for everyone. We were a 2 minute walk to the beach which was fantastic, and just off the main street of shops and restaurants.
