“Within easy reach of Costa del sol resorts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

Pleasant and quiet base for exploring the costa del sol. Nice for people who want to do some walking. Shopping is handy to Fuengirola and Los Boliches stops on the railway which stops just outside the hotel. No train noise, a little traffic noise in the morning. Night time very quiet. Lovely modern rooms with balcony, kitchen with fridge, micro and hob. Perfect for self catering. Small supermarket near the sea with limited choice but ok for necessities. Within 50 mins. walk to Benalmadena and the Pueblo, the latter steeply up hill.

Three nights self-catering and cannot fault the standard of the apartment - well-equipped and spotlessly clean. The location is a different matter and it will not suit anyone who is looking for nightlife or is not too good on their legs as you would not be able to move far with using the very-convenient train.
Most guests were Spanish; I think I was the only English person there and the very nice TV has reception only for Spanish channels.
The Kwik Save Supermarket down the hill is closed and it appears to be stripped out so that might not just be for the Winter season. The local supermarket further down is OK but has limited choice and is a little more expensive than the proper supermarkets.
Only had dealings with 2 reception staff: one a bit dour but did the job, the other very pleasant.
Can't fault the hotel - just be certain the location is suitable for you.

Room Tip: Rooms in the left (East?) wing back onto a road and pick up a bit of traffic noise. It was not noti...

Your calf muscles will be aching. I came back fitter not fatter. This is more like a motel than hotel and I mean that in a good way. Excellent polite service.
Great point to travel around from.
Limited facilities.. you won't get evening entertainment here.
We didn't get evening meal but at an amazing sister restaurant about half a mile away. BLANKKO check it out.

Do not book this hotel unless, A, you want to sit by the pool and do nothing, B, you are young and fit, C, you have a car. This hotel is in a far flung suburb of Benalmadena sitting on a hill surrounded by private houses with no public transport apart from the train, (more about this later) there are no bars or restaurants open with in walking distance and the local supermarket had shut down making this place unsuitable for anyone with mobility problems or kids in buggies, if you walk down to the sea front there is still nothing but a main road. The hotel is clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful especially the Iranian man on reception/bar and the towels were changed twice, our microwave did not work all week inspite of being reported every day so we were unable to heat food, thank God for the train which we used to go to another town to get fed. The train runs from Malaga to Fuengirola via the airport and points in between and is clean and quite, there is no need to get a transfer from the airport to this hotel which would cost about e30 when the train costs about e4 and stops out side the hotel, get off at Torremuelle station. If you take the train into Fuengirola there is a large supermarket next to the station which will sell you anything you need for a self catering holiday.

Room Tip: Get a room at the side as rooms over the main entrance face the railway with a train every 10 mins.

from 20th dec till 27th dec This hotel is just on the outskirts of benalmadena the train station is right outside
get off the plane and head across the road to the train station after having a beer,so easy get a ticket to torremulle approx 2.50 euros the train goes to fuengirola its about 6 stops on the train they have a screen so you can see where you are going its simple.the trains run from 6am till 12 midnight you can get a ticket and get on and off at the little villages as much as you like its only at the big towns you have to have ur ticket clicked much like the underground system.
you can get a news paper called the holiday guide which is very very useful for free just look out for one in the bars.
The hotel had everything you need lovely kitchen good views nice helpful staff tv and a bath and shower i was very happy i did have b/b the breakfast was continental it had everything you need and want but the beauty of it is you can also cook your own in your room if you choose
many people don't know this tip if you go out the main hotel door turn left and follow the road round (it is a dead end) on your left there are a flight of stirs going down they are lit up at night that leads to the supermarket the owner is British and its OK. this will cut out the long long haul up and down the big big hill. go a little bit down the road and there is a lovely bar called la chic the owners are so nice and welcoming we had lovely cosy nights in there just under the bridge is a hotel on the left and a restaurant on the right and you can get the bus directly outside a big hotel to benalmadena 170 euro all the action is near the windmill roundabout they do a wicked peallea at the orange tree just near there all the english bars are around that area near the hotel bali is a place called bonanza square there is a bar called the euro bar yes everything a euro large pint i had a brandy it was like a triple lol yes a euro after a few i had to get a taxi to the train station it only cost 5 euros up up up the big hill well worth it.
just outside the station there is a local bar on the corner aena i think its called the pavement is marble it is cheap and popular have one in there then get ur train back to vista de rey brilliant if you go the other way left from your hotel it will take you to fuengirola end of the line approx 1.80 euros u must get on and off at the lovely villages los bolices is lovely and i went for a peallela at cavajal next stop up and theres a place on the beach called los marinos 20 euro for two people what a setting beautiful it was.Fuengirola is great not so hilly and lots to do there is a market on sundays nr the mosque its lively and also tuesdays and sat there is a flea market. so head on down to the marina it is good lots of continental bars etc the marina in benalmadena is very very nice that is also a must well i hope this has helped and i just wish i could have stayed forever i loved it .
a flea market is on a weds at arroyo in paloma park and fri

We stayed in January and on arrival we were given a ground floor room which opened onto the terrace which was lovely... until we realised the pool was empty... and wouldn't be filled. :-(
The on site restaurant wasn't open as it was low season :-( Luckily it's next door to the train which we used everyday to travel and thank goodness we did !!! The chap on reception/ working the bar was lovely.
The beach at the bottom of the hill at torremuelle is lovely and we had it all to ourselves.
This hotel is usefull as a base for travelling, nothing else.
