Nice hotel close to beach

Posted Dec 30, 2016
Pros: Location, value for money, clean and very efficiently run. Great pool area - comfy sunbeds.
Cons: Drink making facility in room, cheaper/free spa access.
Location: Right on sea front promenade. Nice walk to Benalmadena marina (2.5 miles). Plenty shops & cafes nearby. 100 metres to lift into town.
Great location right on sea front promenade and close to lift up to town. Hotel perfectly clean and tidy and restaurant food selection was perfectly acceptable but not exceptional for a 4 star hotel. Would have preferred waiter service but buffets are the norm unfortunately. Disappointed that had to pay to use indoor spa pool at this time of year.. Free wifi good in room. Bar prices reasonable. Some entertainment in bar area. Room choices pot luck as to decent view from balcony - could be full shade or full sun so aim for east facing towards front if possible. Staff friendly enough but felt bit impersonal in large hotel which is normal. Very efficiently run & well organised. Pool area excellent. No tea/coffee facility in room which is disappointing but again seems the norm these days. Would recommend and probably return.

Great seafront location

Posted Oct 2, 2016
Pros: Location, across the road from beach , excellent restroom facilities in lobby areas. Friendly helpful staff, amazing breakfast.
Cons: decoration slightly dated but know rooms are being updated, look forward to all being redone
Location: Directly across road from beach, 10/15 mins by taxi from airport. Mulitple restaurants, cafes and shops everywhere. lovely promenade walks.
From check-in to check- out all staff so friendly and more than capable to help with any requirements. Great room as requested with evening sun and great view. Breakfast amazing and although busy , very smoothly run with no delays. Second visit and hopefully will return
