“Holiday 9th August 2014 - 19th August 2014”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

The hotel was very nice, clean and the pools are great. Unfortunately the Hotel does not cater for English guests. All the entertainment was in French/Spanish and very poor. The food was average and not very hot. No rooms are set aside for guests leaving in the evening. We has to be out of our rooms at 12 midday, but was not being picked up until 5.20pm. The hotel had not rooms available to freshen up before you went home and your wristbands are taken off, so all food and drinks have to be paid for.
The hotel is in a great location, but based on the above I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a seaview

We enjoyed our all inclusive holiday here: lovely pool, really close to the beach, comfortable rooms, hard working staff (including the entertainers), loads of fresh food and unlimited local drinks. Having booked this for 6 of us just four days beforehand, they moved our bedrooms to ones with great balconies and views after our first couple of nights as the original ones had been a bit pokey (it had been full to capacity). The staff were really helpful: there was food waiting for us on our first night as we arrived after the restaurant had closed. The hotel was very close to the beach and round the corner from a fabulous park. We welled up to the cable car to see the views, got a local bus to visit the exquisite old town and even fitted in a scuba diving lesson in a close-by diving school and a boat trip at the port. Lots of French people at the hotel - all very friendly. Would recommend the hotel and would visit again.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony with a sea view and view of the mountains, on the side that the pills are on.

Perfect location,very clean,lovely pool area with two good sized pools.Bar staff and life guard very friendly.The hotel does cater more for the French guests and this does reflect in the restaurant .a lot of the food was a little under cooked with not a massive choice,but saying that there was no reason to leave hungry.I would go back if only for the fabulous view from our balcony .

Room Tip: The 3rd floor overlooking the pool also gave you a great sea view

Just got back from a weeks holiday at the Palia Roca, as returning guests we were very disappointed that the hotel caters even more to French visitors than on previous occasions, whilst there is a varied selection of food, mainly French orientated, it does tend to be cold and there is a poor selection of breakfast cereals, the hotel did not have our booking when we arrived, every effort by Marie the receptionist was made to accommodate us in a lovely beach facing room, very clean, bit basic, TV didn't work,also air con unit very noisy! It is understandable for health and safety reasons that alcoholic drinks are served in plastic beakers, but not the smallest size available! There is also a lack of staff in the hotels only one bar, thus leading to queues most times.
Sadly the evening entertainment is very lacking and repetitive and has not changed since our last visit two years ago.
We chose to return to the Palia Roca due to its prime location opposite Santa Ana beach and Puerto Marina, but sadly will not be returning again :(

We've just stayed at this hotel for a short break this weekend and I was very pleasantly surprised. It's approx 30 min walk from the marina so it's in a good location away from the night scene.

It's very family friendly with good facilities. It's clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel has two good sized outdoor pools and the staff arrange polo competitions and games.

The restaurant is good and the food was above average. It's not quite restaurant quality but is well cooked and tasty with a good choice. We went for the all inclusive package which meant we could eat and drink as much as we like.

The bedroom was quite modern with good sized beds, wall mounted flat screen tv, good storage and air con. The bathroom was excellent with very modern layout and rainforest shower.

Overall, the hotel is very good and I would recommend it for anyone who wants to stay in benalmedina.

Nice hotel,great view looking on to the beach,room cleaned everyday and fresh towels too. Food was ok, staff friendly especially the bar and restaurant staff. The entertainment during the day and night where more for the French than the British visitors, but I would stay there again it wasn't a problem, bars across from the hotel was good too, yeah I would come back too this hotel again

Room Tip: Room with a view looking on to the beach

My friend and I stayed in this hotel 9-19 June 2014. I had read the information and told the charge for all inclusive wristbands was 40 euros refundable at the end of the holiday, this turned out to be ten euros. We were on the 6th floor and the view was lovely i.e. we were over the pool and had view of the beach. Hotel was clean and yes nearly all French guests who were extremely noisy at mealtimes. Meals were average. The entertainment team worked all day providing different activities in and around the pool. The evening entertainment wasn't that good. All inclusive drinks very limited and finished at ten thirty p.m. If you wanted a cocktail you had to pay 2.15 euros towards it. Overall it was a nice hotel and the majority of the staff were lovely.

Room Tip: Fabulous view from 6th floor
