We booked our summer holiday half board about 8 months before and was looking forward to it. We new it wasnt in the center of Benelmadena but that wasnt a problem has it was advertised in a very well known brochure as 500 metres from local bars and shops. There was 1 bar and resteraunt, very spanish and definatley not somewhere you can walk to and enjoy every night. The hotel is basicly in the middle of no where, just local residensys, There is really no where to walk to and it is on a duel carrageway. The bus stop was outside but you were lucky if you could get on as they usually wizzed passed as they were too full and if you did manage it you would be squashed up and hanging on for dear life. Certainly not suitable for a family with children to travel on. You miss the buss then it is 10 euro in a taxi. This makes an expensive holiday when you think you can walk to local bars etc. We never came across any english guests, much to the dissappointment of my 9 year old step son who usually makes a friend on holiday. The first day my son wanted a diet coke. The waiter obviously dident understand, then we thought he did. Great.! No he didnt, he came back with some sort of a cocktail with cream on top. I didnt want ham on a cheese toastie one lunch time, couldnt make them understand so got a taxi and went in to town. The information in the room was all in spanish too. I love dogs personally but i have never been to any hotel that had lots of doggy guests so if any one going doesnt like dogs or os illergic then it is not the place for you. The entertainmet was terrible. Not an english word spoken. The hotel itself is very nice. Nice views clean etc but the staff and food let it down. It was hard work asking for anything other than coffee or a beer.I was glad to come home. NEVER AGAIN.
