The hotel isn't in Benalmadena but a couple of miles out in Torremuelle - this isn't an issue though as there is a railway station across the road that takes you to all the other resorts every twenty minutes - fares were only 1.70€ each way (Malaga a little more) and it gives you the perfect opportunity to explore the region.
The hotel is self catering and has good faciliites - the pool and patio area was relatively clean, but they really could have done with attending to it at least once a day to sweep etc.
The rest of the public areas were clean and the staff on reception are extremely helpful - even when I went to reception countless times because I couldn't work the tv! (Tip - if you want to watch English tv, press the audio button and the dubbed programmes are in English - had about eight English channels!)
The rooms are decent - the kitchen is ok - we only had to ask for extra equipment once and it was in our room when we got back. We didn't cook a full meal in it though, just breakfast.
The beds are comfy and the sheets were clean - two pillows on each bed and blankets in the wardrobe!
The bathroom was good - plenty of hot water and fresh towels every other day (You could have them more often, all you had to do was ask!)
The cleanliness in the rooms is ok but the maid does cut corners at times - dust under the beds, shower screen needed a rinse of cleaning fluid, dust in the corners of the floor - this is really the only criticism that I could find on the hotel.
I'd definitely stay here again - it's a nice place and is really convenient to explore the rest of the area by rail.
