Stayed at Hotel Balmoral in Benalmadena 28th July 2011 for a 4 night stay. Was a little nervous as hve not stayed here before.
We arrived late at 10.30pm to check in & the staff had prepared a cold meat dinner for us, we weren't that hungry but was very surprised that the hotel had done that.
Rooms are perfect really. VERY clean, nice bathroom & our room balcony was over looking the pool (527).
Breakfast was lovely, don't get there after 9am very busy.
Pool area is clean & has a lifeguard for the kids etc. Pool bar was reasonable prices and the hotel had free Wifi Area in the lobby.
Dinner was limited BUT was nice all the same.
Tip for u: the air conditioner in the room needs a remote control for it to work, at reception u can get one if u leave a 20 euros deposit, u get this back when u leave....I would advise in high season you need it as rooms get very hot.
This hotel is majority Spanish, but to be honest it didn't both us and a bonus to it is they arnt bug sun worshipers so the sun lounge beds are empty until about 11am so you have the choice of the whole pool.
The hotel is literally a 20 second walk to the beach & the same to lovely restaurants and even McDonalds.
Don't let the fact that it's mainly Spanish put you off, for the money this hotel is great if you compare the run down hotels that wanted the same money at high season. Would stay again.
