Lovely hotel extremely friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic kids club and nightly entertainment to suit everyone ,would definitely stay here again . The hill is a little steep but no where near as bad as we had been led to believe in other reviews.

This was our second stay at the Benalmadena Palace - we stayed in June 2013 too. We love it due to the good facilities for children (3 pools including indoor, and a well stocked and staffed kids club including playground). We weren't disappointed at all. The food was lovely too - a good selection and always hot. The staff throughout the hotel were always very attentive and helpful, and the room was clean. The hill to the hotel isn't too bad if you cut through the car park. We'll be returning again soon.

I went here for a short break with my wife. I did feel the hotel was more suited for families.

The staff were fantastic, very friendly, from the reception to the maids. All went out of their way to say hello and make you feel welcome.

The rooms were , nice and clean, but didn't feel quite as nice as some of the other four star hotels I've stayed in.

The food was nice , but a little bit repetitive , and we were only there for four nights.

I would, stay again but would maybe opt for a more adult orientated hotel.

Stayed here on a self-catering basis so can't comment on the food but heed the warnings about the very steep hill, it's hard work if you've walked back from the town then have to face 'THE HILL'! The hotel was nice enough but our room wasn't good due to the sloping roof above our bed. We were on the 7th floor on the side where the roof slopes and you can't get to the other side of the bed without bending over (I'm 5ft 4in) or crawling over the bed (not good if you have to get up in the middle of the night). Nor can you stand at the wardrobe next to it without bending or sitting on the bed. When I asked the receptionist about it he said they were all like that which I later found wasn't true. Also our room was right next to the air outlet/generator thing on the roof which was noisy all the time and chucked out cooking smells much of the time. SO AVOID ROOM 705, it's probably the worst they have! I would not go back!

Dear family,
First of all, we thank you for staying in our Hotel. We appreciate your feedback, it is most important for us! Our studios come with sloping ceiling, as they are all on the top floor, all our studios are the same. Our one bedroom apartments are larger, have a larger terrace and don´t have a sloping ceiling and are indeed more suitable for taller people. The hotel offers this information clearly on the website in order to avoid missunderstandings. We are sorry, that the studio did not meet your expectations.
Regarding the hill: we offer free Minibus service daily from 10.00 am till 17.00 pm. It runs every 30 minutes. Also the rear entrance (to the supermarket) is less steap and a good option for people with little children (prams). The third way to easy the way up is to enter through our garage, which is half way up. We wish you a good summer and hope we can still rebuild your confidence for a future stay in Benalmadena Palace. Kind regards.

Just back from a long weekend staying in the Benalmadena Palace. The hotel was great value for money and would definitely go back.

Check in was quick and painless - 37 euros for a late check out, for those with a late flight this is totally worth it.

The room was spotless, we stayed in one of the self catering apartments on the 7th floor. We have a good view and the room and clean and comfortable.

The pool was a great size with plenty of loungers it was quite busy in the afternoons so to guarantee a good spot get down early.

The snack bar was always busy but for those that are self catering its very pricey. Almost 7 euros for a sandwich. Much better off walking for 5 mins to one of the cafes facing the beach.

The hotels location was great, apart from the hill! Lots of pubs/restaurants and cafes near by. Also there is a massive supermarket just behind burger king which is ideal for those who are self catering.

All in all a really good hotel.

Most of the staff was friendly. Plenty of food at the buffet, tasty, but not no woow factor here like showcooking, light variation only. The pool is quite cool and needs some time to get warmed up. The nearest ATM is about 500m at the McDonald. The room was ok. You can ask for a quiet room, because the english residents can make a lot of noice, even at 11 PM or later. There is a very nice kids club. The bar beny's is nice, although managemet favors Spanish football, so no customer minded attitude. The indoor pool is good for fun with small kids but it is 1,5m deep and you cannot have to much fun of the lifeguard. The area is great. I can advise the paseo maritimo place Tragatapas. Taxis are cheap and needed to tackle the very steep hill to the hotel. I also liked the fitness area, but there is no airco ;-)

Room Tip: room 413 was a good corner room, but if the wind comes up, even at night, it can be loud

Stayed here for a week with two teenagers. Everything was top class. Food was top class and good value. Staff were very natural and helpful. Mario was very motivating with sports facilities. Hotel had everything. If you had young kids and wanted to relax there all day - there was plenty for kids to do under supervision and plenty of activities for adults too at the pool and adjacent courts. No problem with pool beds - and no need to reserve them - just bring a towel. Walking distance to everything. Staff very helpful with advice and assistance. Would return again. The hill up to it was tough, but a small price to pay - Massive prom beside hotel for miles if you are a walker or jogger. It is beside the beach for sea lovers. Taxi from Malaga less than 30 euro.

Room Tip: If you have two adults and two kids, better book 2 bed appt. One bed will work as you dont spend muc...
