January on the Costa del Sol has its tricks. Some bright days, some half covered, temperatures vary from 15 to 18 celsius. The Sunset Beach Club is located a 100 metres from the boulevard, and a small beach, in a quiet street in the all touristic costal part of Benalmadena. The authentic village itself is a ten minutes drive up mountain. The Sunset is a huge venue in the white Andalucian style, with spanish tiled patio's. I understood why early January was low season: not a lot to do, neither in the Sunset itself, nor in Benalmadena. The two spacious outdoor swimming pools are not heated, so way too cold to swim in the winter months. The indoor swimming pool is small, and filled up with the few people around.
The spa and the fitness room are minimal in size, and has to be reserved in advance. A daily program is offered, and some evening entertainment, but due to a lack of sports or other facilities, it didn't feel like 'a club'.
The English speaking staff was friendly but busy, it felt understaffed at times. At check in, you have to guarantee an additional 200 euro's 'in case of damage'. I asked the staff to check the studio before I left so I was sure no 'damage' was found after I was gone - the staff understood and my credit card guarantee was dismissed.
The studio itself was spacious, clean, the bed huge and comfortable. The kitchen at my studio was well equied with toaster, dish washer and washing machine.
