We stayed for 10 days in a 1 Bed apartment which was exceptionally clean, well equipped and comfortable and used the hotel as a base for touring in the area. The hotel is situated in the old town of Benalmadena Pueblo - a couple of miles inland from the coastal resort of Benalmadena Costa. It is quite difficult to find, despite being well signposted as it is in a maze of tiny, one way streets and parking can be a problem. That said, we were directed by the Receptionist to a large, free public car park within a couple of minutes walk of our apartment. The area is very quiet - although there are a number of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. There is a small supermarket very near the hotel entrance and another, larger one in the town centre, around 3 minutes walk away. Staff were very helpful and friendly and we thought the apartment was excellent value for money. Do not choose La Fonda if you are looking for a sun, sea and sangria-type of holiday as you may be disappointed but it is ideal for those wanting a taste of life in a genuine Spanish community. We loved it and would certainly stay in the La Fonda apartments again.

We have just returned from a week in Benalmadena Pueblo the


appartments were dirty, crumbs under the microwave, broken work tops, bits of food on the crockery and on the fridge shelves. The appartments are nothing like the photos on the websites we visited, and we visited a few. We had a studio, which had patio doors , if we were to have put our hands out when they were open we could have touched the passers by. Our son and his family had a one bedroom appartment which was slightly cleaner than ours but not much, we cleaned it so we could at least have a coffee etc. before setting off for the day, and a coffee before going to bed. It did have a balcony but you could only stand on it (just) We did complain at reception but the receptionist wasn't to happy, he said he would get someone to look at it in the morning,someone did come and wash the floor. We seriously considered finding other accomodation, but decided since the bed linen and towels were clean we would put up with it for the short time we were there. If we had booked for a fortnight we would have found somewhere else without a doubt.

We stayed in one of their two bed apartments which was much larger than I had expected with tons of wardrobe space. The apartment was only a few minutes walk away from the main hotel, situated in a a very picturesque area of Benalmadena. I would definitely recommend it.

My friends and I went to la fonda apartments for 4 nights for my friends 25th birthday. we got a taxi from the airport and the taxi driver stopped near some shops and apperated to ask for directions dispite there being road signs, we appeared to know nore of where it was. When we got to the hotel to get our apartment key we was met by a grumpy looking bloke who got out a map and drew on it where we were to go...... well after 30 mins of walking up and down hills and steps with all our luggage we went back to the hotel and asked someone to take us to the apartment as we couldn't find it. The apartment was clean and tidy and had a TV. It was comfy and with the heater we were warm (It was mid december).

After unpacking we went to the hotel to ask directions for the supermarket (maccadonna) the man pointed us in the right direction. We walked for about 45 mins and still didn't reach it. We called in a golf club type place and they informed us that it would be easier to catch a bus as it was still quite a way away. They also told us that it would not be open anyway as it was a bank holiday. We caught a bus back and went to the hotel again where they confirmed this, they gave us a small bottle of water each and as everywhere was shut we couldn't get any food or drink fror the rest of the day. Luckily a restaurant was open in the evening. We had a good night out and returned to the apartment. There was some other guests that had some arguments and fights although I didn't have a clue what they were saying it was very entertaining.

The place is good to stay at if you only use the apartment as a base. We were out most of the time catching busses to various locations such as the theme park (tivoli world) and selwo marine world and of course shopping and drinking places.

Please remember that alcohol measures are non existent in spain! I was drinking cocktails etc and was ill for ages and normally I can drink loads!

Stayed: December 2006

We stayed at this hotel in October, expecting a charming hotel in a charming old town on the Costa del Sol. We first of all can´t recommend the Costa del Sol to anyone due to the horrible amount and type of development that´s going on there. The Hotel La Fonda has not only a view of this development, but is in the process of redoing it´s parking lot. As a result, the hotel views look out onto the parking lot construction, with a view of all the construction cranes in the background. Far from charming. The breakfast included by the hotel consisted of machine coffee, machine juice and tasteless food. The orange juice was like colored water, no flavor at all. Sorry, but can´t recommend this hotel. We actually cancelled our second night and went on to stay in Arcos de la Fronterra.

We offer apartments. We do not have any hotel and we not give breakfasts.

Thank you.
