Just returned yesterday from this hotel. We are a couple in our 30's, no children and we had a lovely time. Agree that the evening entertainment could be better - to be honest this is the only thing that would stop us giving 5 stars.
Location - yes is ten mins bus/taxi away from towns but this is described on website, didnt have an issue with this as expected it. hill quite a trek in the heat but during the day the bus is on so not really an issue.
Sunbeds - really confused with a recent review on this as we were there one week and there was always sunbeds available all day. Maybe this family wanted right next to pool in ceratin area as these always went first. Gobsmacked me to be honest that there was no race for sunbeds,maybe it was the time of year but this is the first time I not had to get up at stupid o'clock to secure some. Still loads available at 10am. Being a couple with no kids we found an area ever so slightly away from pool which was perfect for us as not as many children there.
Food - I have quite a restricted diet and did fine. Food is always hot and no queues unless you hit full peak time and even then wasnt too bad.
Snack bar - food available all day next to pool, and kept hot.
Breakfast was brilliant - so much choice.
Cleanliness - after reading a few reviews I took some kitchen wipes with us just in case, but they came back still sealed. Room was spotless as was the hotel.
Cristina the thomson rep on reception is lovely and will do anything to help.
We went to fuergarola beach one day, walked it there, quite a walk to where we went to but beach within 5 - 10 mins walk if you want. Got bus back - approx 3 euros for both of us from there and same price to get from hotel into benalmadena marina.
Overall, lovely holiday, could have done with a few more days there really, definately not ready to come home!
