“Superb Value”
Reviewed 2 June 2009

We have visited this part of Spain on several occasions and like the vast majority of holiday makers want value for money. In the Hotel Balmoral we found it. Superbly clean, excellent rooms, excellent pool with lifeguard. Lovely gardens and plenty of sunbeds. Being one road back from the sea front the rubbish bins at the rear of the seafront bars but at the front of the hotel were a bit of a downer but nothing that would spoil my holiday. two minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from a small selection of shops and restaurants. The Hotel was full of Spanish pensioners, but we were in Spain, they can be a little noisy but generally were fine. My 8 year old grandaughter had a great time with Mila in the kids club
The food is not the greatest but more than adequate and there was always something on the menu we could eat. Bar prices for wine, beers and coffee and chocolate were not excessive.
If I had a moan it would be the disable facilities. I took my son who is in a wheelchair and we had to remove the footrests to get the chair into the lift, the disabled toilet is ample once you are in but it is virtually impossible to get a wheelchair through the door. Apart from that it was fine and we had a great holiday at a very reasonable price.

A WARNING :- If you want to pay two star prices but expect a five star hotel then this is not the place for you- please stay away in the May half term so there is plenty of room for me, my family and friends to visit again as we surely will.

we stayed at the balmoral hotel from 10/5/09 for ten days, on arrival we were quickly given our keys, and our room was first class, better than two star, i have been in worse 4star, the staff were very helpful and efficient, the pool area was kept clean and tidy,
the restaurant was very clean, again the staff attentive, but while the food was adequate it was not exactly to my liking, it was ok if you were a rabbit, but the hot plate did not have enough variety, very spanish orientated, and the entertainment was well there was no entertainment, a dj playing spanish music, but then again we were in spain, and most of the hotel patrons were elderly spanish, with a sprinkling of french, all in all it was a good expieriance staying at the balmoral, and i would not hesitate on going again, and the beach is two minutes away all on the level

Me and my boyfriend went here on our first holiday and stayed here for a week. The rooms where kept clean towels and beds where changed everyday. The location was great the beach was across the road from the hotel and also had different types of cafes and restaurants on the strip by the beach, also the marina was about ten min walk from the hotel i would recommend to take a walk down there lovely place and loads of different things. There where a few bars and not much entertainment along the strip but if you want more of that its a 15 min walk down to where its all based. We took a trip to the town center on the bus where there was loads of shops to shop in :) make sure you dont go at the time they all take a sleep as hardly no where is open. Overall my only concern would be that the hotel was full of Spanish an food could of been better but thee are plenty of places to eat. Any questions about the hotel or location please just ask.

Hi,
We were from holland!
I've went here with my Mum
11 days until 11 august 2008

The hotel Was good, Service everything was good.!
But they said that it was 3 star hotel but it was 2 stars hotel?
That was really weird!
Food was terrible!
it really was terrible, Room was good! We actually got a sea View!
But! people Don't ever ever ever ever go to benalmadena!
For a week or something or more!! Never !
For 3 days is nice! But not for more,
Go to porto Banus Or marbella much better!
Or fuengirola!
But we got a nice time! But not a special time a little bit boring you know, and we were the only dutch people! on this Hotel.
And that was. Awesome!
They are coming to this hotel Much:
Germain people
Spanisch
English
Russian
And that's it =]
