Diamont Resorts- wie immer auf hohem Niveau

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Hatten ein renoviertes 1 - Zimmer-Apartment. Alles wie man es sich wünscht. TV mit allen wesentlichen deutschen Programmen. Wifi für zwei Endgeräte. Einziges Minus: Wifi mit 6€/Tag teuer, keine Rabattierung bei mehreren Tagen

Very good amenities balance for families

Posted Apr 9, 2015
Pros: Very friendly staff, polite and competent.
Cons: It would be perfect if apartments had access to lifts and be "inside" the complex, outside access can cause security concerns.
Location: 50 yards from the beach. A short walk to the Delphinarium, 30 minute walk to the Sea Life in Benalmadena. Short drive to the Animal Park.
I was always impressed, starting at the reception, and finishing with the cleaners. Ladies at the reception, although busy always answered all our questions in full and with a smile. Our room was cleaned at least 3 times during our 7 day stay, so it was spotless throughout - we didn't have to worry about taking the rubbish out or anything like that. The location couldn't be better - it's 50 metres from the seaside, a short walk from many seafront seafood restaurants. The indoor pool was never busy (during Easter break), the outdoor pools were also very good, although a bit cold in April. We loved the views of the sea from our room, the private terrace was a nice touch as well. The on site restaurant was of good quality as well, open at all hours and served familiar food.

Nice apartments

Posted Apr 7, 2015
Pros: It is very close to the beach and buses to other towns. All the staff are lovely and it is a well run small resort.
Cons: Free wifi and free use of indoor pool and gym. These are only free for Diamond members as it is a timeshare resort.
Stayed here many times and always find it a very pleasant place to stay.

Lovely Spanish feel

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Pros: Very Spanish , White wash buildings , two lovely out door pools and roof terrace. Lovely resturant on site ( not part of hotel)
Cons: Nothing... Just note very Spanish hotel/apts with lovely apartment blocks but if you have problems with stairs / walking tell the staff.
Location: Easy train from Malaga to arroyl(benalmadena Costa) Marina. Park La Bateria. Park Paloma. Arroyl de la miel
Lovely and relaxing, always feel at home . I would travel here alone.

Goed gelegen

Posted Mar 20, 2015
Cons: Had verkeerde datum gereserveerd , en wilde die veranderen . Heeft veel moeite gekost en 250€. Dat vond ik er wel wa over !!!
Location: ER is van alles te beleven . en overal dichtbij
Om datum te wijzigen . Is veel werk en kost veel 250€!!! Heb receptie gebeld en die konden datum niet veranderen ????? Heb ook zelf vliegickets moeten wijzigen kost nog eens 240€. En administratief is er toch niet veel werk aan !!! En het is trouwens al de vierde keer dat ik met Expedia naar Sahara sunset Ga !!! Waarom zo moeilijk doen .

A perfect setting about 50 metres from the coast.

Posted Mar 19, 2015
Pros: Everything - comfy bed, pleasant helpful staff from the reception desk on arrival to cleaners on departure, entertaining cookery demos etc.
Cons: The completion of the upgrade will add to the perfection! It was noisy during the day with the building work going on over the road.
Location: Close to the sea/marina and Los Palomas Parque. Excellent bus/train service locally into Malaga/Mijas/Marbella. Very cheap as well.
Having stayed at SSB before my wife and I knew what to expect, but it was even better than before. Many rooms have been updated and our room was particularly pleasing with its sunny balcony in the variable march weather. My wife was particularly pleased with all the thoughtful little things provided in the apartment, which we have never come across before on the Costa del Sol.

Bra beliggenhet, god service

Posted Mar 7, 2015
Nær stranden, nær Palomaparken, flotte uteområder og fine leiligheter! Vi koste oss på en mini-ferie med forsmak på sommeren. Kunne ønsket oss gratis wifi og tilgang til innendørsbasseng, ellers ingenting å klage på.

Great Break

Posted Feb 22, 2015
We have stayed here lots of times and are Diamond Resorts club members. Therefore, Towels, Spa, pool and Internet are free for us. If you are not then there is a charge. To he honest Sahara Subset is excellent. Good value for money with brilliant rooms and amazing staff. We would say that you would say but we mean it. You have to remember this is a place run for and by a timeshare (type) company so be prepared. We've been members for 10 years so we know how it works and still love it. The Casbah Club is also excellent and the half board option is a must. Unless you are on a diet! We didn't want to leave and would go back tomoz!

Why the hard sell?

Posted Feb 14, 2015
Pros: Apartment size and comfort.
Cons: Cut out the hard sell and incorporate the use of the indoor pool in the cost. I am sure a few extra £s on the cost of a holiday would be acceptable.
Location: The seafront is a good for a long walk. Malaga is close and has a good castle and the Picasso museum. The Park and Marina near the apartment are good.
This is a very pleasant place, the apartment was clean and had plenty of space. The balcony was a decent size but with an outlook on another block of the same complex. We enjoyed the holiday, but received a phone call to ask if we would like to have a complimentary breakfast and find out more about Diamond Resorts. Unfortunately, we were subjected to a 'hard sell' of some form of membership, which was completely inappropriate. We also had to pay to use the indoor pool, which we did not find out about until after we had booked. If you go to this resort, avoid the salesmen!

While we do invite our guests to attend a meeting while they are staying here, this isn’t mandatory unless you are staying on a promotional break, and you are naturally welcome to decline if you aren’t interested in attending. We don’t feel that high-pressure marketing tactics are necessary or appropriate, and we would like to apologise for any unhelpful behaviour shown by our on-site sales team. We hope that you had an otherwise pleasant stay and would like to see you coming back again in the future. Salvatore Di Caro Resort Manager
