me and hubby got back yesterday from a fab week at this hotel.Rooms spotless,maid service excellent, food great, the only downside for me hubby wasnt bothered, is the sunbeds need replacing, very shabby and they dont move to any other position other than flat.Yes there are a lot of spanish people at this hotel but there was a lot of english too.Location wise was good it sits behind Macdonalds, with plenty of bars and restaurants, a 2 minute walk to the beach. Cant comment on the entertainment as we went out every night.We have been coming to Benelmadena for 11 years now and we always go to Mr Pickwicks which is a family friendly bar that does quizes, bingo and games.Its downhill from the Bali Hotel but it is a 15 minute walk foom the balmoral.Just want to say hi to Margaret and John Pickard fom Killingworth in newcastle really enjoyed your company All in all a really good holiday would definatley go back to the Balmoral

Room Tip: try and get a high floor views of the sea are amazing

My friend and I stayed in Hotel Balmoral in June. There was a mix up with our booking when we arrived, but Teresa was absolutely fantastic in getting us sorted. The rooms are excellently laid out. We stayed in a nearby 4 star hotel last year where the rooms were of a lower standard! Lovely balcony with sea views overlooking the beautiful pool (filled with sea water!) also. All rooms have AC and there is a safe in the room which you rent. There are only two small lifts in the hotel, so you may have to wait for lift service, but that's just a small thing. It has excellent access to the beach, restaurants, shops and bars. We had half board in the hotel. The food is fine and you won't be hungry. We opted to eat out on two occasions for a change. Overall, a great hotel, spotlessly clean, beautiful pool area. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Rooms on the highest floors are probably quieter.

Stayed here with our two daughters, aged 16 and 24 in early June. Was pleased with the hotel on arriving and very pleased with the room which, although not massive, had everything you needed but a fridge (the ONLY downside). Big wardrobe and mirrors. Beds hard but slept ok on them .We asked for extra pillows and slept very comfortably. Lovely view from balcony on 4th floor, of the sea, the pool AND the mountains.The tv was ok. just SKY NEWS in English but good for us to watch the jubilee celebrations back home. Air conditioning was ok. Don't forget to ask at reception for the remote control for the air-con - 20 euros deposit. The room safe was 10 euros deposit and 2 euros a day. The hotel was spotless. Maids cleaned room and changed towels every day and never bothered us once. Just came in when we were out. The Hotel, as reports say, is full of spanish pensioners and what a racket at meal times. We found this to be quite endearing and apart from the odd few, they were polite, friendly and certainly enjoying themselves. We must say we preferred this to stag and hen parties which seemed to flood into the resort at the weekend. The food was lovely. Not a great deal of choice but always something for everyone and our girls liked it, and they're really particular. Being young they never got up for breakfast and we were really impressed that the staff let them have a lunch instead, as well as their evening meal.! Certainly a cheap holiday for us.The pool was lovely and the pool bar opened halfway through our holiday.,There are two lifts that are small but adequate . The only thing I know about the entertainment was that the girls went up to the entertainment room expecting a disco and came back down with shouts of L.O.L as there were Spanish pensioners ballroom dancing. There was a free parrot show, which was good. Plenty of sunbeds, lovely garden area to lay in, plenty of hot water for showers The resort was quiet to start with but got busier at weekend. The hotel is right next to McDonalds and directly opposite the lovely beach. Lots of bars and restaurants on the way along the promenade to the beautiful marina. Bit of a walk and lots of street traders and touters but such a lovely walk, Very safe relaxed atmosphere. SO if you prefer the incomprehendible rabble of Spanish o.a.p's to the hen and stag parties and a bit more noise in a morning than the early hours this hotel will be perfect for you. It was for us. Absolutely loved it and would go back anytime.

This hotel gives very good value for money. Room rates are low and includes a very adequate buffet breakfast. Reception staff efficient and helpful. Rooms adequate in size and cleaned well. Very good location. Free wifi in the hotel.
