Old fashioned beach front hotel
Posted Sep 17, 2016
Perfect location on the beach front. The lift upto the town centre is close by too. Outside the hotel are many bars and restaurants, and it is a 45 minute walk along the beach front to the port at Benalmadena where there is lots to do also.
The communal areas like the pool are very nicely kept, we were always able to get a sun lounger although they do charge 3 euros.
The rooms are very old fashioned although do have new bathrooms and are comfortable enough. The WiFi is also amazing. I did a speed test and it was up at 95 mb/ps!
The noise from other rooms was very loud at other times. This wasn't noise made by the guests at such but more that the stone floor is extremely noisy when any furniture is moved, the scraping noise from this woke me up frequently.
The first room I was allocated was awful, a low floor and smelt of body odour from a previous guest. Did eventually get moved to a different room which was much better with great views
Some of the staff are friendly ( gentlemen with glasses on the pool bar and the cleaner) but too many of the staff act as if they are doing you a huge favour and the attitude tends to be poor even when being painfully polite. I noticed this when they spoke to a lot of guests.
Overall I would only stay here for the right price. It is a basic 2/3 star hotel with a nice (unheated pool), for the right price the location makes it worth it but I didn't overly enjoy the stay and really have any brilliant sleep.
