I have just returned from a 5 night half board holiday at the Best Benalmedena, we booked it last minute, having had to cancel a holiday, a week earlier due to ill health. As soon as we arrived, we noticed how good the quality of the All inclusive service was, compared to most other Spanish hotels. we enquired about arranging an upgrade to AI, the receptionist told us it is usually, 15 euros pppd extra, however, they already had the maximum no of AI guests, this was disappointing, and think if we had known in hindsight the good quality of the hotel and service, we would have booked AI. We noticed that very few of the guests, didn't have an AI band, so can't understand why they couldn't have allowed us the upgrade, it had been available to book, when we arranged our holiday 2 days earlier. It is a very nice hotel, with fantastic views and close to a lovely sandy beach. the food and drinks served at the hotel were excellent. drinks around the pool and terrace were served in glasses, not plastic, which was nice. the coffees served were proper filter coffees, not the cheap instant stuff, you normally get. the AI customers and the paying customers, got the same quality service. the rooms are modern and spotless. If you have booked you will have a great time. Benalmedena, however, is not my cup of tea, very touristy. We got the bus, at 9 o'clock most nights across the road from the hotel and travelled into LOs Boliches or Fuengirola, you can find lots of little traditional Audulucian streets with bars and restaurants there. travelling on the bus is cheap, 1 euro50 cents each way.
the hotel pool doesn't get much sun until 11 am and it stays sunny until after 8pm, the hotel serves evening meals, later that normal, starting at 8pm, I think it may be due to, the pool, still be used by many up until this time, however for us, this was a drawback, as we had to go out that bit later at night. Really loved the hotel but probably wouldn't go back as it is a bit out of the way of the town, and I prefer Torreblanca or Fuengirola
