We stayed at this hotel for a week in from 11th August 2014. A family of three and met up with my sister and her family, seven in total. This a great hotel for children, one of the best we have been to. The Swimming pools and slides are enough to keep them entertained all day. The area was clean and tidy at all times. Aside from the queuing for sunbeds (2hrs from 8am) we had no problem getting one afterwards but not by the pool areas. I do feel that if you have small children then priority should be given near water. There are not enough beds but this is apparently being looked at. The food was great for both adults and children although if you have a fussy eater like my 9yr old then plain carrots, peas and broccoli would have gone down well! other than that I thoroughly enjoyed the freshness of the fish dishes and ate far too many cooked breakfasts! The hotel is situated well for the beach and shops although the Marina area is a bit of a walk for children but the buses are frequent and easy to use. We went to Torremolinos and Mijas using public transport. No problem at all. Mijas is lovely and well worth a visit, especially for a donkey ride! It is a lovely spanish village with a great museum too. We took a family trip to Gibraltar, it was good but there was not enough time to explore. A hired car would have been a better choice. I am afraid we did not do much of the evening entertainment but from what we did see, it looked great. Snacks and drinks at reasonable prices but perhaps extend to offer fresh sandwiches? there is also a free park with play equipment, chickens, goats, donkeys and turlts around a lake not far from the hotel, this was lovely. Opposite the hotel is a storm way with a 15ft drop (totally safe and well built), I made the mistake of looking over the wall and saw a gorgeous little kitten (white and grey) unfortunately it looks as if it is stuck there and quite thin, its mother is black and white. I took it upon myself to feed it twice a day - there are many stray cats in Benalmadena and no RSPCA. We called him Gato and if I could have taken him home I would. Cat food is only one euro. I hope this little kitty makes it, he was super cute. Perhaps the hotel could do something to help him? Had my Spanish been better, I would have asked however, according to the Benalmadena rescue centre (privately funded) there are too many to worry about. So, if you can spare a euro, look opposite past the bins on the way down by some rope tied to a drain and you will see a rock at the bottom - call his name and he'll come. We will certainly return to this hotel for future holidays. It is one of the best we have been to ;-) Gracias and enjoy your hols!
