Hi!

There's a sticky at the top of this thread with loads of transport info.

This link shows the timetable and a map (scroll down for the map): benalmadena-arroyo.com/train-timetable.php

For the Sol Timor, get the Fuengirola train at the airport and get off at Torremolinos station. You buy your ticket at the machine before you board - I think it's €1.70.

At Torremolinos station leave via the escalator and walk straight ahead, keeping the bandstand and children's playground on your right. When you reach the road the taxi rank is on your left.

It's about €6 to your hotel

Yes, I'd get off at Torremolinos, too, then take a taxi. But if I had very little luggage I'd alight at El Pinillo and walk. Pretty simple to do and should take about 15-20 minutes.

Got to agree with Tony about El Pinillo. its less than a mile to Sol Timor, and all downhill. We only take hand luggage so its no problem for us.

If you risk El Pinillo but then feel tired, walk downhill to first roundabout then go left to the Carrefour shopping centre (5minutes) where there is a taxi rank. There are also places in the centre for a snack.

Yes, that definately doesn't sound right!! Did you ask before getting in the Taxi how much the fare was going to be?

€17 is more than 'not right' - it's a disgrace, the flat fare is €6, even allowing for lots of luggage, Sunday/night rates etc. I can't see how they got anywhere near €17.
