MedPlaya Hotel Balmoral
Ranked #23 of 45 Hotels in Benalmadena
Reviewed 25 April 2014

The hotel was nice, in a great location and provided us with a good base from which to explore Benalmadena. Rooms were fine, clean and tidy, basic but functional, and had a great view of both the sea and mountains. Staff were helpful. Breakfast was reasonably good with a fair amount of variety. We had read the reviews for this hotel before we left, so we were not surprised at what we found. The majority of guests were Spanish and over the age of 60. The atmosphere was really nice and friendly and suited us well- we were not looking for a lively nightlife! We got great value for money and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.

we stayed at this hotel in july 2013 (sorry for late review) and were very pleased with the room..fabulous sea and pool view from balcony which we were not expecting, room spotless and beds comfy..biggest bugbear was chasing the maids for clean towels, each and every day they took our towels and replaced with only 1 bath and 1 hand towel,very annoying when returning from beach for a shower and find this..the public areas basic but clean..nice pool and pool bar..we did not eat in hotel as mostly just used it as a base..we would definately stay here again...

Room Tip: ask for a sea view room on high floor...excellent...

The Hotel Balmoral is basic but it is very good value for money. My hotel room was very clean and comfortable with a nice balcony and very comfortable bed. The bathroom towels had reached the end of their life-span however! Breakfast is pretty basic - but you wont go hungry. The hotel is in a very good location in Benalmadena - pity about all the bins on the street outside the hotel - but this is obviously outside of the hotel's control.

This is cheap and cheerful.excellent central location for Benalmadena.50 metres to the beach and very close to popular restaurants.The rooms are functional and very clean.This is mainly used by senior citizens.If you can get a sea view room,even better.For those on a tight budget,this is a god deal.
