Doramar Apartments Benalmadena
Ranked #453 of 532 Hotels in Costa del Sol
Reviewed 17 November 2012

Have stayed at the doramar apartments 3 times now. Thay are very basic but clean and have a small kichen area with 2 ring electric hob, Fridge, sink, toaster e.t.c. a very small bedroom with two single 2'6 beds, television only has a couple of english channels but you only get what you pay for and at 23 euros a night what can you expect ? There is a pool but not been in it and allso a bar again not used it.

Location is great just down the hill and across the road to the beach and the marina is allso within walking distance with many Bars, Restaurants and Disco's.

If you only need somewhere to sleep and on a buget then theses apartments are fine cheap and cheerfull.

I Came here with my sister. We found the apartment though small was clean and adequate. I was dissapoined to find we were expected to pay 2 euros for a sunbed. Also the pool was very deep and had no shallow end..
The staff especailly Anna and Pilar were very helpful.
.
As we we are both over 60 we enjoyed the nightly entertainment which was music fronm the 60s 70s and 80s.
The apartments are close to shops and restaurants. .

We have recently been to Benalmadena where we booked for the Tamarindos Apartments only to be told on arrival there was no rooms available due to burst pipes? so after a bit of confusion they arranged for us to stay at the Doramar apartments 5 minutes away which was no big deal apart from we booked for by the beach only to be put over the main road,we booked with ''On the Beach'' who didn't let us know about the change of apartments which i'm not happy with as this is the second time we've been let down by them and it won't happen a third time,however the Doramar apartment s were basic you couldn't stay in the room as it put years on you with no balcony to sit on either the only solution was to go out,saying that the pool area was o.k but you had to pay for the beds and you could only have their refreshments,the entertainment was acts who couldn't make the'' Mongolias Got Talent''show and thats including Barioaki the D.J but on the positive side we only stayed a week and the staff were very friendly,My tip for you is if your short of money stay at home but if your any good at building work this is the place for you,but on the serious side stay away there are better places for the same money, shop around.

Room Tip: If you decide to go an upper floor with pool view

Very very basic. If you have any mobility problems this not for you. We stayed 10 days and, despite requests, the sheets and towels were not changed. No balcony so nowhere to dry any washing. Staff not friendly nor helpful. TV only has 4 English stations, all news channels. We would not go there again.

The Apartments are basic but OK if you want a cheap basic self catering stay, the staff were great & very helpfull, there is an outside pool and a bar downstairs, we only needed somewhere to sleep and this was perfect for us, People were moaning about the place but we enjoyed ourselves, it is used by the spannish as well & they were nice too.
No complaints from us, we've stayed in a lot worse, if it was trying to be something it's not then I would complain but you get what you pay for!!
In short it is a "cheap & cheerfull place" in a great location!

Room Tip: ask for any room ending in a 10 e'g 310, 410, 510 & 610, as they have sea views from both co...

This hotel is very very basic, we booked a apartment for 4 adults but no way was it big enough for 4. we then had to pay for an extra apartment, the air conditioning did not work so we had to keep the windows open and the noise was pretty bad from cars motor bikes and people going up and down the road until 7 am in the morning. would not recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: One room only big enough for 2 adults

This accommodation was not 3 star I would rate this as 1 star. No balcony, rooms were extremely dirty and not suitable for 4 persons - one bed was a mattress on the floor, bed were not made up and sheets were not changed at all! no toilet roll!! No facilities to make tea/coffee all utensils were extremely dirty. Only one towel per person per week! Fabulous beach/shops/restaurants were close by and great night life at 24 hour square. Rooms had to be cleaned prior to us leaving and we had to take our own rubbish to bins out the back.
