You're kinda in the middle between two bus stops... If you walk out of the Hotel to the right you'll see a roundabout, it's just over the other side on the same side as the Hotel. 5 mins tops.

Actually, can someone confirm where Benalmadena Costa actually is, as in the Bus Stop?? Because the OP will need to know this in order to catch it at the right time - I've never really thought about it before :(

Thanks MT - the reason I got confused I guess is that when it's a Malaga or Torremolinos bus ---> Benal Costa it goes up to the Flatotel and then turns round up there and comes back so it would stand to reason that if it's a bus "leaving" Benalmadena Costa then it would be leaving from Flatotel ;-)

However, I have delved a bit deeper and the itinerary says that it leaves Benal Costa, sure, then stops at Fuengirola, does that mean it doesn't stop anywhere in between?

You read too much lol. Its the vagaries of Spanish bus services. If you read the bus stop timetables in resort, on Av Gamonal they tell you the times the buses leave Torremolinos on route to Mijas. What use is that if you have never been before? Does it take 10mins or 20mins to get there from Torre? Why not use the 24hr Sq timings as they are published on the kiosk window at 24hr Sq.

The return journeys from Flatotel to Malaga/Torre etc are times leaving Flatotel .
