Really perfect holliday. We were 31-8-10 - 7-9-10 with 14months baby. Big room with good beds, big bathroom with tub (I asked by mail), breath-taking views for sea in left side and for mountains on right side, delicious buffet (a lot of fishes and sea fruits, a lot of meat and all time it was refill). Location is really perfect, near the sea, which was clean. Before hotel are 4 swimming pools - all clean, many sunbeds and sun umbrellas. We were with baby by swimming pool and than we went only swim to the sea and come back. It was really perfect. Somebody was write here that there it is expensive, I do not think so, I think similar as other. In hotel bar cost coffee 1,5EUR, Sangria 1lt 8,90EUR and drinks as tequilla sunrise etc. cost 5EUR. In restaurant bottle of wine 8eur and higher, but for 8eur good. We were going here from Prag tu Malaga by air and then by train to Benalmadena Arroyo de Miel and finally by taxi to the hotel. Taxi cost 6eur, train 1,55eur/adult. We had rent a car there and went for trip to the Granada Alhambra - really beautiful. There is more places to see it as Sevilla, Gibraltar or Nerja caves. We were in Malaga city too, by bus, but it was not so much interesting. Maybe shopping but nothing special. We made shopping later on in the airport.
Finally:
Plus: location, big room, good cleaning service, delicious half-pension and more more more
Negative: partly unpleasent staff in restaurant and slow staff in the bar
We were really very satisfied. I had fear, because here is a lot of bad reviews, but we were absolutely happy.

Worst holiday ever in Spain - we went on a much needed break and they were renovating half of the hotel and the beach while we were there - food was pretty basic and both myself and my partner were very ill for two days - the reception staff were very nonchalant and did nothing to help (even charging us for calling a doctor!) The staf in the restaurant were only attentive if you tipped them well. We will be going back to Benidorm next year - worst holiday ever!

This is the best hotel I have ever been with my children. The food was good, 4 swimming pools, lots of place in the rooms and in the swimming pools. Not far from the beach, streets, shops, activities like Crcodile park, Sea life, Dolfin park, Telecabine, ... Large rooms, lots of activities for children and adults.

This hotel was built in 1961. so it’s on a large plot with 4 pools at a great location next to the beach and 3 minutes walk from the marina. Large rooms. It’s more good 3*+ than 4*. Nice staff but needs a makeover soon! Real down side for me was only eurosport on the bedroom TV in English. Haven't experianced that in over 10 years! So it was boring chilling out in your room early evenings, no tv to watch. 12 euros a day car parking.

Stayed for one week with my 15 year old and 12 year old. In my opinion, hotel is definately worth the 4*rating for its facilities, food, cleanliness and location. People who think that it will be like a 4* in England are wrong because standards in Spain are different to England. Meal times were a bit manic but this is to be expected as the hotel is very large and it is all self service. The food choices catered for every nationality which made it very interesting. One night there was a table laid out full of fresh seafood. There was a microwave in the dining room to use if you like food piping hot as usually by the time you have sat down the food has cooled down. Room was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. Could only get euro sport channel on TV in English. Location is fab, great beach, shops, bars and (expensive for a drink, harbour ) Bus stops are right outside hotel and the aquapark outside Torremolinos runs a special bus mon-fri which picks up at the stop 3 times in the morning and drops back 3 times in the afternoon. For us the downside was lack of English guests so children didn't make any friends. The daytime entertainment programme was better than I was expecting but evening was disappointing as English guests not catered for here. Also for the size of the hotel only one pool table and one table tennis table is insufficient as it was nearly impossible to get on them. Didn't play tennis as it costs 10 euro's for racket and court hire (non refundable) Reception staff always helpful and friendly, bar and restaurant staff could smile a bit more but I think this is how they are in Spain and nothing personal. Yes I would stay there again, no problem.

We stayed at Triton hotel from 12-19 July, 2 adults and 2 kids (under 10). Our room was located overlooking Plaza de Ole - a lovely peaceful square with bars. We could also see the beach and pier. The rooms are spacious, and very adequate. We had two double beds, with fridge and TV (english channels BBCnews24 & eurosport). We left one of the room keys in the electric switch and this left the air conditioning on permanently - so it was lovely and cool when we returned.

We stayed half board, but only ate in the hotel twice for our evening meal. There was a great selection and something for everyone, but our kids found the selection poor. We like to go out and explore, and would definately recommend a visit to Bonanzo Square (only €4 in taxi ride away) or a walk up a steep hill opposite hotel, where you can get 3 course meal and bottle of wine €11 - great atmosphere and plenty of lovely restaurants.

The swimming pools are a great size and our two boys really enjoyed them most of the time as the regular lifeguard was excellent ensuring everyone's safety, however on two days (16th & 17th July) the Lifeguard from hell was on duty and spent all day parading around the swimming pools - he must have a radar for laughter - anytime he heard laughter the made sure it soon stopped, and prevented anyone wearing glasses sitting beside the pool. He would not allow my kids to use their water squirters in the pool (even though the squirters can be purchased from the hotel shop) - he was just OTT with the rules and really spoiled my kids fun for these 2 days. There was lots of complaints among other guests sitting by the pool.

There is a gateway from the pools direct onto the promenade and you can use your room key to get back in through this gate. On the promenade there are lots of shops and cafes and bars etc to have lunch or a less expensive drink! The Marina is only a few mins walk away and it is fantastic!

The only things we didnt like about this hotel was the following:
(a) There were very few english speaking guests and our children missed having other kids to play with.
(b) Another drawback was the entertainment seemed to be in Spanish so we didnt stay any nite in the hotel. But we found lots of other places to explore and really enjoyed Benalmadena.
(c) To get a sunbed we had to take turns and get up at 7am to put down our towels. We didnt bother the first couple of days and ended up with no sun bed!

All in all a good hotel & perfect location. We went to Aqualand (water park) and Tivoli World (fun park) - recommend both!

This hotel is right on the beach and is in a fab location . It has clean large rooms and although other reviews said it was run down I thought it was better than I expected. The food was good with something for everyone . The only negative thing is the staff are very grumpy and don't smile very much especially in the poolside bar !
