“A Breath of Fresh Air”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We arrived at the Pierre & Vacances, as the Villa that we had booked was a complete dump. The reception staff were fantastic, checking in was prompt and so we were in our room within 15 minutes.
The rooms were clean, spacious and fully equipped.
The staff were always very helpful, polite.
My only discern was that our linen or towels were not changed in the 5 days we were there.

Excessive mould in the bath. Turned down first room because the mould was so bad. In the second room I had to use Cillet Bang and a tooth brush to try and clean it. If we didn't have 2 small children and loads of baggage to cart along we would have changed rooms again, if not a different hotel. Maids come to tidy the rooms, if they can be bothered, every 4 days (one occasion it was 5 days). Was not told that we had to take our rubbish out to a skip across the street.

Just got back from a weekend with the lads and would highly recommend this hotel. Very nice staff, clean rooms and a very good pool. The bar is very cheap (2 euro a pint) with very good service.
For the price,all 10 of us were Very happy!

My second visit to this hotel, although my first review.excellent location close to all amenities, with a supermarket 5 mins walk away.upon entering the hotel looks very grand,large reception marble fixtures and staircase.we asked for a pool view room and this was accommodated although we had to wait an hr, not a problem we went to the supermarket for all the essentials and when we got back the room was ready.the rooms are like mini apartments with a fully fitted kitchen including dishwasher, fridge freezer,toaster,coffee machine and every kitchen utensil you may need.what really made this holiday for us was the excellent pool and outdoor area. Spotlessly clean with pool checked 2 or 3 times a day. A cafe bar serving all the usual suspects,plenty of loungers, quiet relaxing scene, maybe not so in the height of the season but we had a perfect 6 days.temps in high 20's all week,we stayed 1-6th of June.The air con worked well and the room was clean and spacious with a large balcony.We will defiantly be returning to this hotel on our next visit to benalmadena and I would highly recommend to anyone.Book now and enjoy the sun:)

Room Tip: Ask for the room you require and if available you'll get it

Nice clean quite hotel in a great location. Rooms are spacious and kitchen facilities are excellent. Arroyo the Spanish town and tourist marina are equal distance away which was great. Staff are very helpful and friendly and the mini market next door is so handy. Food on site is pretty good with the choice of two cafés and reasonable and they serve most beers and ciders. The only downside is the hidden extras like add-ons for wifi etc. will definitely be back sometime in the future.

Will try and keep this short. The first two rooms we were shown were not fit for purpose. Black mould and orange bath product deposit over most of the grouting around the bath, when I say black mould I mean a lot of black mould, he toilet bowl was black in the bottom, there was lime scale and grunge on the shower door frame. The shower column itself, well I would not have even attempted to have a shower it was grim. The second room we were offered was not much better, asked to be moved again this time the room was acceptable.
Cannot understand why we were shown these rooms with filthy bathrooms.
We spoke to a lady who had been there 3/4 times and had never had any problems. But I am just reporting my experience. The first room was 308 and I think the second was 314 not sure about this I think I was in shock.
If I was guaranteed a. Clean room I would go back there, the location is good, the public areas are spotless, everything we'll maintained the pool area is excellent there re facilities for people with mobility problems to access the pool The staff are very helpful. , just a pity about our initial experience otherwise it would have been high praise all the way

Excellent accommodation and a fantastic area it is located in, The hotel is very modern with excellent views of the sea and only a short walk to the beach, the Pool is a good size with showers and there's no need to getup early for a sun lounger! Was a very peacefully sta
