This hotel is excellent from the point of view of the food and choice in the restaurant. The bedrooms are comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean. The view and proximity to the beach is ideal. However the noise from the builders is terrible, starting at 8am and continuing until 7pm, every day except Sunday. The outside walls of the hotel are being clad in black tiles and so drills and angle-grinders are in constant use, causing clouds of dust. It was impossible to sit out on our balcony and relax.
This is an extensive project and the building work has already been going on for a long time and it will be some time before it reaches completion.
The irony of the situation is that we felt that the black exterior is not going to enhance the hotel. The investment would be much better spent on a good sized swimming pool.

The hotel is very well presented and looks just like the photos. Breakfast is also very good.
We were not pleased about the level of noise in the hotel at night though. We moved after 3 nights but the second location was also noisy. The walls transmit noise easily and the other occupants do not respect those sleeping between 12 and 2 in the morning.
The hotel should try to segregate floors for those who like quiet after 12:00.
The reception desk did not try hard to help although they were polite.
We would not choose to stay again.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at this excellent hotel at the end of February.
Following a previous visit in 2012, we returned again and were not disappointed.
I booked directly through the Melia website. I joined the rewards programme and paid 77 Euros per night, half board for the two of us (not 77 euros each!). Also, by booking direct through the Melia website, we received a promotion of free transfer by taxi to and from the hotel. This is outstanding value for money.
Have no doubt, this is an excellently run hotel in every aspect. The hotel public areas and rooms are spotless. Staff are pleasent and helpful. A special word for the Maître de and his restaurant staff. Very experienced people doing an excellent job. It is simply not possible to be disappointed with this restaurant, the food was absolutely great and plentiful. Food is laid out buffet style, but if you're not happy with that, the chef will cook you something fresh in front of you. Most nights, we had paella to start, followed by a steak, pork, or turkey dinner. Most mornings, we had an omlette of our choice, cooked fresh for us and we made our own Bucks Fizz ! A very enjoyable bottle of Rioja cost 10 euros. First Class.
In February, the hotel and restaurant was fairly quiet, but I very much get the impression that they could cope just as well at the height of the season.
Our room on the 8th floor had a perfect view of the beach and sea. The TV had dozens and dozens of channels, but only one in English - BBC World News. There was also no tea or coffee making facilities in the room. There is a mini-bar/fridge.
The hotel is right on the promenade and we enjoyed walking to Benalmadena Marina, stopping at the bars/cafes/shops along the way.
Each evening after dinner, we spent some time in the bar area, where there was live music, which usually consisted of one man playing gutar or piano etc. We enjoyed this, although there were not many other guests around. Very large G&T - 7 Euros.
On one day, we took a guided coach trip to Gibralta. Booked through Viator. We really enjoyed the trip and the experience of visiting Gibraltar, with all the history etc.
This is not a hotel that really caters for children, although we did see several around. There are no playparks or entertainment for them.
As a location for a winter break, we found this hotel to be perfect in every way. We will return.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on one of the high floors and in the north wing if possible. You will get full aft...

I love this hotel. Perfect location,, right on the beach with every facility you could ask for on your doorstep. Most balconies have a view to the sea which is wonderful.I only have one complaint. We don't go on holiday to watch tv but there were a few rainy days when we were there and not much to do but get wet. As most of the tourists to the Costa Del Sol are british why are there very limited tv channels. Don't think this would cost the hotel a great deal of money to fix this. This is a very common complaint for the Brits abroad.We did travel out of season, any other time this would not be a problem.

A wonderful experience, thanks to the attention to detail of the reception staff I had an ideal room with sun on the balcony for most of the day. The room was of a high standard, and spacious. the option with the half board of either lunch or dinner was perfect, especially as the food was so good, and the service exceptional. The staff made it their business to ensure all was well, and there was nothing further that could be done to add to the stay.
I would highly recommend this hotel, and look forward to visit again.

Room Tip: If you want a room with all day balcony sun, make sure you ask reception at check in.
