“5th visit & won't be the last - I hope”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

Just back from another brilliant week - as well as a superb beach front location there is a great restaurant (recommend the paella) on site and beach and poolside bars. You can walk to Benelmadena Costa and the Marina and buses to Benelmadena Pueblo (service to mid evening only), Torremolinos and Malaga are very very cheap. Whether you want to relax by the pool, go for a dip, explore the Costa Del Sol or a bit of everything the Sunset Beach Club is ideal. Friendly, helpful staff and lovely balconied apartments with a kitchen so you can cook your own meals if you want - we did. As well as an on-site shop there are two supermarkets very near by with some real bargains, Maxi Dia and Super Cor the latter being open until 10.00am
One tip - a taxi from the airport was 30Euros, but there is a new M128 bus service from Benelmadena & Torremolinos to the Airport. It's only every two hours but at 7.60Euros for two of us it's a lot cheaper than a cab

Room Tip: External rooms on the East side face across the beach with views as far as the Marina. Wonderful to...

myself and husband and our two children stayed in sunset for one week in august. Firstly i cannot fault the hotel cleanliness it was spotless. The pools were big but a bit deep for my 6 year old and the childrens pool was too small. I felt if you didn join the kids club you were left out a lot. Every day something different happened at the pool eg. big waterslide which was fab, however after getting just 2 slides each the slide was only allowed for kids club. I found this the same throughout the week with different games that was played was only for kids club. The entertainment at nite for the children was good and for the adults was just as good but oh my god why have it inside?? we are in spain and there is a beautiful pool area yet we have to be sat indoors for entertainment like we do at home. The rooms are small but we knew that and the onsite supermarket was very reasonable. I really liked the location and the beach restaurants beside it were really nice. All being said we did enjoy it but thought it could have been better.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay on Tripadvisor and indeed for your kind comments about our hotel and facilities.

I’m sorry you disappointed with the way the kids club is organised. We try and organise a wide range of activities throughout the week. Yes, some of these are just for kids taking part in the Pirates day club; however, we also make sure that there are plenty of other activities throughout the week for those children who choose to not take part in the pirates day. That being said, I will certainly pass on your comments to our Head of Animation so that she can keep them in mind for next year’s activities programme.

Thank you once again for your valuable feedback and I hope to welcome you back again in the not-too-distant future.

Kind regards,

Justin Thompson

Having been to this hotel in June 2011and August 2013 and have previously rated this hotel in my reviews in the past I felt I should rate again, this is our second visit (all ten of us ages: adults 68, 66, 45, 42, 34, 30 and kids/teens aged: 16, 15, 8 and 3, so a mixed variety) and I have to say yet again we were 100% satisfied, everything was top class, the rooms might be a little small but we don't go on holidays to stay in the room, we spend every minute outside, I've read complaints about how uncomfortable the beds are, and yes their not the most comfortable however as I said we don't go on holidays to sleep either. The rooms are cleaned daily, the pool and all of the outside are absolutely spotless,the staff can be seen every morning cleaning both outside around the pool area and a member of staff will always be seen cleaning the pool itself, you'll have to get down early to reserve your seat, BUT you will have to stay with your seats if you want to keep them for the day, it wasn't a problem, if you left, your towels were taken and rightly so as people often left towels and went to the beach and might not return till dinner time which wasn't fair on others especially those with kids. Also one factor for us was the fact our son was sixteen and we thought it would be tough especially at his age, I have to say my son met up with about twenty if not more kids around the same age both Irish and English and we didn't see him throughout the holiday, he only came for dinner with us in the evenings and straight back to the gang he met, it was fantastic, what a lovely bunch of kids.(these bunch are arranging a revisit via Facebook next year) I would also say use the shop on the premises, it's no different than the shops on the street except they don't have fresh fruit or vegetables, but besides that its handy, price wise there is no difference and its convenient. The entertainment was great at night, usually we would head down town in the evenings for dinner, fantastic Irish bar down the hill from the hotel which was reasonably priced, around a hundred quid for all ten of us for meals with alcohol and minerals, and the acohol would consist of pitchers of Coors, Heineken or Carlsberg which were only seven quid if you bought separate from the meal (it was included in ours), then we'd head back to the hotel for the entertainment. Also if you head down town further you'd get food very cheap with complimentary bottle of wine and ice cream for kids. Just another thing to note is the Waterpark, the queues were very long which you'd expect in August so you'd be as we'll off to avoid them during peak season as its money wasted really and they can be quite expensive to get into, besides all kids want is the swimming pool, and lastly we took a boat trip to spot dolphins unfortunately no one has ever really spotted the dolphins so don't buy your tickets at the hotel, you'd be better off haggling with the boat tours themselves at the Marina, we paid only ten quid for adults and free for kids with complimentary drinks, the hotel charge eighteen quid for adults and ten for kids. The trip was lovely as you could get into the water out in the Ocean, but no dolphins, still the views were phenomenal.

Thanks so much for writing such a comprehensive and complimentary review of your holiday at Sunset Beach Club.

I am so pleased you all enjoyed your stay and that you were able to get out and see some of the wonderful attractions Benalmadena has to offer. I’d just like to quickly point out that the dolphin trip tickets we sell at our leisure desk are for a specific trip on a special glass bottomed catamaran; the price is actually 15.5 Euros for adults and 8 Euros for kids. As you quite rightly pointed out, there are lots of other companies in the Marina offering dolphin trips; however, these are usually smaller boats and we do not sell tickets for these from the hotel.

I hope to be able to welcome you all to Sunset Beach Club again next year!

Kind regards,

Great place, short spin in a taxi to the town, hotel had everything to keep adults and kids entertained, rooms are nice... Good deals available out if season. Only thing that I marked this hotel down for was its location, I prefer to be walking distance to beaches and towns when away but if this doesn't bother you then this place is for you

I would highly recommend this place to stay for families. It has four pools for all levels of swimmers. Plenty of actiivities to do for kids even outside of kids clubs. There is also a soft play area on site as well. Staff very helpful and friendly and rooms cleaned every day with fresh towels. We stayed for a week in July and definitely would go back again.
