“fantastic short break”
Reviewed 28 May 2009

was really pleased to arrive at this very clean air conditioned hotel. We took the train from Malaga airport, easy to do and very reasonable, then a cab from Benalmadena station to the hotel. Hotel was away from the really busy part of town and relatively quiet.
Food good although salads and breakfast better than the hot meals!
cool swimming pools and sea freezing! But only May!
Well worth a walk to the fantastic marina, and a stop of at Newz lounge bar for great food, and I must add, brilliant toilets!

A party of 8 adults stayed here for the Easter week-end and we had a great time. We were actually upgraded from the 2 star Balmoral, but we were very pleased with this excellent hotel. From check-in to check-out the service we received was 1st class.The hotel itself is modern,clean and had a great pool area and gardens - it even had an indoor pool which was brilliant as the weather was very warm but the water in the outdoor pool was too cold to venture into further than dipping your toes in!! The food was of a good standard and all of us were happy to eat our evening meal there every night. The hotel had a very international feel with visitors from many countries which was a very refreshing change from the usual 'british only' hotels we had previously stayed in. All-in-all I would certainly use this hotel again on our next trip to Benalmadena.

we had a good stay in a clean hotel which was reasonably priced.
the location was excellent near the beach with a nice promenade.
too many british restaurants in the resort for my liking. the town itself was pleasant - do go to malaga on the train and from the airport it is quick, cheap and easy to catch the train to the resort.
beware the time share touts

enjoyed our stay , would recommend this hotel for its service, food,cleanliness and value for money.however its location could be a problem to some as it is located at the end of the resort(very quiet) and a uphill walk to it, but once there its GOOD.

What a fantastic Hotel!
With five young children under 12 and two middle aged parents who have travelled extensively, this hotel ticked all the boxes!
The facilities are much the same as any other good 4 star hotel, although Los Patos is only a 3 star, but as we all know it is who we interact with during our stay that makes all the difference between an average holiday and a great holiday. Nothing to do with the general managers but just the average employee who serves you your food, Carlos was very attentive and a kind waiter. The rooms and the whole hotel was a credit to the cleaners as it was spotless! Javi was the children entertainer in the hotel, he also did the disco and organised the general entertainment, as we were here for Christmas, he also helped out Santa!!!! What a nice guy, he was patient with the children and interactive with the adults. He is Spanish and has been with the hotel for six years and is a real asset to the hotel and a genuine person, (Not like the usual imported holiday rep,/children entertainer)
The fact that the Hotel was frequented by a lot of Spanish families was, for us, a good sign, not a lager lout in sight! There were many European families that have been coming here for the past 12 years, and have returned again following the closure and refurbishment of the Hotel over the past 2 years!
The entertainmant was of a high standard, and the music was varied suiting all ages, children and O.A.P. alike! The reptile and parrot show was a hit with the kids.
Unlike some of the reviews I read before coming, I thought the food was of excellent quality and catered again for all ages and tastes. A buffet was offered at all meals, offering salads, fruits, fish, seafood, meats, vegetables etc... there was an abundance of choices and the food was always hot!
With the recent devaluation of the pound we found that booking full board saved us hundreds of pounds a week. If you were going on a day trip you can order a picnic the night before so you are not tied to the hotel!
All said and done if you could take all the staff from this hotel and place them in any other hotel our review would be the same, it´s the people that make the difference and any Manager/owner reading this should take note the formula for success is that simple.

After a 5 night stay at Los Patos hotel we were very impressed with the quality of everything here for the price we paid. We stayed on a half board basis and ate at the hotel almost every morning and evening. The food was good but not excellent and there was always plenty of choice - even to suit fussy eaters like myself!
The entertainment at the hotel every night was excellent for families but was mostly spoken in spanish!
The pool area impressed us...it is spacious and clean and even holds an indoor pool - perfect for cloudier days!
The hotels location is perfect - just a 5 min walk from the beach and all amenities are close by!
Staff at the hotel are very friendly and we found the reception desk very helpful, they called us taxi's at any time.
We found that most of the guests here were spanish but most of them didnt cause a problem except one large group that made us feel unwelcome - but this was not a fault on the hotels part!
Everything (for the price) was most enjoyable and well worth a short break away!
Hope this helps.

My Mum and Nephew Stayed at this Hotel from 16-26 October 08, My Son lives in Spain so we wanted a Hotel close by for the two of them, Mum is one of the fussiest people I know, this is her review.

Hotel is spotless, cleaners everywhere, towels and bedding changed nearly every day, The room they had was a decent size with quite a nice View over the pool on the 8th floor.

Food was good with plenty of choice, how anyone can say it is bad is crazy. My Nephew enjoyed it so much he had seconds at every meal..Mum likes her food piping hot, which was easy to remedy as there was a microwave available for guests to use.

Entertainment at night was not brilliant but it passed the time and the kids liked it, During some shows photos were taken, the price of the photos was 10 euro each, which was rip off at the zoo you get 3 for 10 euro. Easy to sort out son loaned her a camera.

The hotel has 2 pools one is undercover, both were cold at this time of year, it didn’t stop us swimming though

The hotel is on a hill, but its not very steep, about a 5-10 min slowish walk up from the beach

Only thing Mum could complain about was the lack of things for teens to do

Overall a great Hotel, which we and other family members will be using when visiting my Son
