“Fantastic”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We have been to this hotel twice, for ten days last year and seven days this year.
If you are looking for a busy hotel/apartment with lots of entertainment this is not for you, but if you want first class accommodation, facilities, staff and service in a great location, this is for you.

Fantastic

Stayed at these apartments for 10 days, and I would rate them very highly. We had a 1 bedroom apt which were very spacious and spotless. The kitchen area has dishwasher, washing machine, and fridge freezer, everything you could possibly need for a 2 week break. Air conditioner worked brilliantly. The apartments are only a 2min walk from the beach, The pool at the apartments are very clean with life guard on duty from 12 - 8, they also have a special needs chair for getting in and out of the pool. There is a cafe on site which sells most kind of drinks and food. The marinia at the end of the prom is definitely worth a Vist.its about a 20 min walk, with lots of restaurants and bars with sea views on the way. The best restaurant was Toro at the marinia fabulous food and service. Overall very good apartments close to all amenities, I will be back

Room Tip: Higher rooms have less road noise

This aparthotel has a 3star rating but should be 4star.
I stayed here with a friend 3 years ago.
Fab size and fully equipt, which makes it perfect for either a short stay or full winter break.
Very comfortable and definatly felt like a home from home.
Modern decor and i think my favorite feature of the apartment was probably the shower, youll see what i mean when you go yourself :).
Decent quiet location, enough bars in the area and only a short few minuets walk to the promanade, beach and shops to fill your fridge.
Around 10-15 mins walk to Paloma Park, a must visit.
Around 25 mins walk to the marina, everything you need is there, try the wok chinese buffet restaurant.
Buses are regular to Malaga city, Mijas and Fuenigrola, as well as other must see towns and attractions.
The Spa is lovely, as was the massages we had, just a shame you have to pay to use the spa, Think it was (£15) (massages - standard treatment prices).
The outdoor pool was closed as was out of season when we went, but nice, well sized, as was the outside space.
The staff where friendly but would liked to have been given hotel info pack with times, etc.
I will defo stay here again.

At present I am staying in this hotel, with my 16 year old daughter and my husband, my 16 year old is in a wheelchair, we did take this in to consideration when booking this hotel.
We ordered a hoist and paid 80 euros for two weeks to make life easier for mum and dad.
Unfortunately the bathroom is not big enough to swing a cat and the hoist would not fit, on day 1 my husband asked reception if they had another room with a wet floor area or a shower that was not enclosed enclosed inside the bath, , answer No but there hotels in Torromolinis did !!!!!! Not staying there.
I will point out the hotel did not know we were hiring a hoist, but in this day and age you would expect a hotel to have a disabled room?
I can not fault the hotel otherwise, I have read negative reports about the towels sheets etc not get ting changed every four to five days, self catering apartment with everything inside , including washing machine / dryer, use it I do.
Location is perfect and so is my view, sun until 6.30 which is a bonus.
The only other thing I could fault is we were going to use our hoist at swimming pool to put our daughter into but the pool appears to be full of Spanish adults and children, are they staying and paying, I really dont know, but I know we are.
My husband and I would certainly come back again as we have been twice before, unfortunately our daughter will be left at home in a place that will be able to accommodate disabled people.
I would have given this hotel 5 stars apart from the disabled bathroom situation .
Comments from the management welcome .

Room Tip: No wet floor disabled bathroom

We stayed in the Principe from Sunday to Wednesday. Hotel is very modern, clean and rooms are large. Excellent choice for a short break. Check out for a short break was 5pm on the day which is really good. Location was slightly too far from the Marina for us but apart from that it was the best hotel we have stayed in so far (5 visits to Benalmadena).

We stayed at the Principe in June 2014. After arriving at the airport we got the train to Benalmedina from just outside the Airport for just a couple of euros, much cheaper than a taxi. The hotel is very clean and modern and has everything you need for a perfect holiday. The pool area is well maintained and is very clean. The location is just a 2 min walk to the beach and a short stroll to the nearest bars/restaurants. If you want more choice head to the marina (about half hour walk or 7 euros in taxi) Theres plenty of restaurants here in a lovely setting. If I was being really fussy we are a couple and had a twin bed and the mattresses weren't that comfortable. Other downside that on the day of departure we had nowhere to shower after using the pool in the day time. A minor issue but something the hotel might consider changing as all the other facilities are top class.

We stayed here last year and were impressed enough to return again. We were a little disappointed with our apartment this time though. Mould round the bath, shower screen grubby and one of the panels was broken and wouldn't slide along without having to take it off its runners and jiggling it a bit! The floor had not been swept properly, we still had the previous occupants dirt and debris. The glass fronted balcony looked like it hadn't been cleaned for months, it was like looking through a thick fog! Again, the balcony floor was very grubby. It seemed like the public areas were cleaned to within an inch of their life but the same thoroughness not applied to the rooms. Also, the lounge area was looking rather shabby. There was a large stain on the settee and the furniture was heavily chipped, scratched and marked. It might be an idea if the management regularly checked the rooms for maintenance and cleanliness inspections.
On the plus side though, the apartments are spacious, beds comfortable, kitchen well equipped and very quiet. Excellent location for beach, bars and restaurants. Handy for the local Mercadona supermarket and Paloma Park.
In general, the positives outweigh the negatives but the management should really address the issues that are letting the apartments down.
