Stayed here for 3 nights mid June. Hotel was nice with lots of facilities, nice food and clean, well sized rooms. Check in was quick and efficient. Location was a fair distance from the main attractions of Benalmadena but there was a convenient taxi rank situated just outside the reception area so no issues getting around.
Our only real gripe (which sadly is a big one) and the reason that I have not scored top marks is that the pool area does not open until 10am. The reason is supposedly to prevent people 'reserving' sun loungers but why not just remove towels to a designated collection area if they are left on loungers for too long? Several of us on the trip are mothers and are used to being up early (6-7am). This left us with a minimum 3 hour wait for the pool! I love an early swim. This policy also means that parents are hanging around with their children for hours in the morning, waiting for something to do, then ultimately they are bringing their little ones to the pool as the sun is hitting its peak! I think it is a poorly thought out policy that penalises those who want to make the most of their day whilst pandering to those who want to lie in. There are many other effective ways of eliminating lounger hogging as demonstrated by many other hotels, and for the record the policy didn't stop the issue as many loungers still lay with just towels on them anyway. Shame really.
