We stayed here for 1 week , September 9-16. average temp was 30 degrees! I found the Hotel was clean, comfortable and was adequate for my needs. The hotel is in a good location for entertainment. The room was fine, 3 beds, power shower. The safe is dear , 20 euro rent and 10 deposit, for 7 days. A pint was 3 euro in the hotel bar, which I thought was a tad dear, compared to up the street. The room was cleaned each day. We just took breakfast which is 7am - 1015am, the 1st morning the queue was up the stairs at 0950, so we went earlier after that. The usual Spanish choices were available, rolls,cheese,ham,croissants, cereals, and the hot stuff. most days you could have, fried bread, beans, scrambled and boiled egg, pancakes, mushrooms, rice, yes rice! Toast, and a few other things. I've had nicer, but I had my fill every morning. There are 3 lifts, which really hold 3 people each, but usually they came quickly. I had a room on the second floor overlooking a side street, which initially was disappointing, but was actually nice and quiet and without the sun on us. Daily average of 30 degree's heat here for us. The pool is large enough and 1.45m deep . Free volleyball if you wish. The sun loungers were not all taken by 11am which was nice. Not many under 40's here either. The heated Jacuzzi is down some steps beside a gym, fairly secluded if the missus wants to be naughty.... You can go out this way as well to the marina. The Wi-Fi was broken when here and they were waiting for 'the man' to fix it. It was 6 euro for 24 hrs. The only 2 english TV channels stopped working after our first day,no signal? bbc news and eurosport.
Parakeets fly around the area which is nice. Reception staff (24hrs) were helpful for bus directions etc.
There are plenty of bars and eateries above and below the hotel within walking distance. The beach is fairly close as well.
All in all I would use this hotel again if I was back here, and I chose it for its location and 20 minute transfer time from the airport.




The 'square' is at the top of the street, just to the left. Pushy bar reps there just swarm round you.
Tobacco shop is top of street to the left, as are the bus stops. We got the bus for 1.30 euro each and went to the cable car ride, about 4km away. Its at Tivoli park. On top of the mountain you get a nice view and 2 shows daily of eagles which was nice. The last show was 5.30pm. We went up at 4pm.
We went to the water park in torremolinos by bus as well for the same price. You get off at torremolinos centre and its about a 20 minute walk to the park, I just asked directions. Having got too much sun we couldn't face the mile or so trek back in the sun so took a taxi back to the centre, and got charged 8 euro, which was about 4 too much in my book. The marina is just below the hotel and there are boat excursions, even at night. A 30min trip out to see the coast and lights is 10 euro which is good value I think. We took the catamaran ''TopCat'' out for 15 euro for 1.5hrs to see the dolphins, and with this twin hulled boat they are literally just below you a few feet swimming along the inside of the hull, ull not get that so close with other boats, free beer and sea swimming too, really good value. There is a Chinese (chino fu) at the top of the street to the right, 5 euro for 2 courses, and it was nice. There is a sushi bar called sakura at the marina, food was lovely and we had a table overlooking the marina. Some bars can be very dear at the marina, 18 euro for 2 vodka and orange, check the prices first. Plenty of cheap bars up the street and a 10 minute dander to the left. Eg Tiny's, Jolly Rodger and Tony's (thanks for the tee shirts!)

Room Tip: ask for pool or seaview if you wish that

Just got back from a lovely stay. Nice hotel, great location with the marina and beach at the bottom of the tropical garden complete with little parakeets.(We were lucky enough to have one of the corner family suites with a triple balcony over looking the beautiful pool gardens and the marina; be aware that some rooms look out over a side street! We definitely lucked out.) Quite busy when we were there but mostly pensioners and families which was brilliant, it meant there no drunken idiots! We were half board and had lots of choice for breakfast and evening meals. All the usual "all you can eat" buffet style stuff, i.e. Full English, continental or fruit etc for breakfast. Evening meals had a great salad starter with a choice of a main meal of meat or fresh fish, with all the trimmings. The fussy kids could survive on chips, sausage, beans, pizza and all the desserts. Entertainment was provided in the evenings which the kids loved and it saved us wasting money down in the puerto. The only gripe we had with our 2 little girls was that there were only 2 toilets you could use without returning to the room. One at the fitness centre and one in reception. As you can imagine these had lots of use by everyone and despite regular cleaning we preferred to return to our room.

Was worried after reading reviews.
Got there about 22.30 and checked in fine and was told there was a cold meal waiting for us which I didn't expect.
Rooms slightly small but cleaned everyday and small pack of bath stuff for all of us including toy sponges for the children.
Food was fine. I have 1 child that is a fussy eater and 1 that only really eats veg and Salad. Both ate everyday and had more than one plateful.
Staff very friendly and only had to queue once for about 15 mins for drink .
Maybe only slight downside would be entertainment, could have been more.

We have just returned from our first trip to Benalmedina and stayed in the Hotel Palmasol. Our family consists of two adults and two teenagers and we all agreed we would love to go back. Benalmadena is a beautiful place with lots of culture and lots of fun things to do. The hotel was very clean, the staff were excellent, very professional and service during dinner was impressive ( these guys work so hard from morning till late). The food was great something for everyone and as a person who enjoys cooking from scratch I can honestly say it was very flavoursome.
Yes there is some noise but it is a family hotel and there were lots of young children - what do people expect???
My only gripe would be the sunbed situation around the pool and as per usual the towels are on at 8am and no one ever arrives to lie on them. In fact one day my partner and I counted 75 towels on empty beds! Surely some procedure could be devised to counteract this but otherwise thumbs up all the way.

we returned from this hotel after a two week break 24th july to 7th august 2011! i was quite worried after reading reviews but was very happy with our stay throughout!!! the hotel is in great location much better than the other first choice hotels we dropped off at!!! pool area was brill and rooms were clean and tidy with an updated bathroom. we were on the first floor overlooking the pool!! they could do with a bit more choice of food but you could always find somthing we liked!! we didnt stay in hotel much in nights but would defo recommend mombasa bar with friendly staff and good location. we did lots of trips including gibralter, cable cars, crocodile park, aqualand and selwo marnia all worth a visit! weather was perfect mid thirties everyday!! would defo go back.
