“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Really lovely hotel to stay. Well located to the marina and shops, as well as the promenade walk to Carihuela. Booked a long weekend HB directly with the hotel with no fuss. Glass of cava upon arrival and what an easy checked in. Staff at the reception are very nice and friendly. Our room was directly lookin down the restaurant courtyard, the room is really clean as well as the toilet with some toiletries included which is quite good if ur not fussy. Beds are comfy with extra pillows provided,theres a mini fridge which is really handy. Lovely selections of food ( salads,hot meal,breads and desserts). The waiters are very nice and attentive to our needs as we got a toddler with us.
My husband really enjoyed the complimentary bottle of cava for his birthday and thank you so much for the card, it was such a good gesture.
If you want a lovely hotel without the high end luxury you cant go wrong with them.
Thank you ever so much,we had a lovely stay.

Worth trying the cable car by Tivoli. Carihuela promenade is lovely with nice little shops and chiringguitos

All the best!

Stayed 4 nights HB early December. Weather was lovely which helped. Hotel is great location by Marina and the staff were very friendly. Nice welcome cava and helpful front desk sorting out pre-paid taxi to airport on departure.
Rooms good, clean and prompt service for extra pillows. Bar a bit quiet but weren't expecting entertainment. Liked the flamenco but others was typical holiday hotel entertainers - Ok but not to our tastes but Kaleido in the Marina was only a couple f minutes walk away.
Restaurant service, range & quality of food all very good at both breakfast & dinner.
Arrived by train from airport then taxi from Benalmadena - good, cheap and efficient. Returned direct by taxi to save time and ensure we could enjoy breakfast without rush. Local bus service also cheap, efficient and very easy to use
Would definitely recommend the cable car and the bird of prey demo. Best show of its kind I've seen. Café at the top is a bit of a disappointment though.

My wife and I have been to a number of hotels in the Benalmadena area over a number of years and this is the best one we have been to. From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome, glass of bubbly from a very friendly chap at reception, lovely clean room in a well set out hotel. We stayed half board and could not ask for more choice at breakfast and evening meal. The staff were very friendly in the restaurant with the waiters and chefs on hand to advise us what some of the more unusual dishes were, a great taste adventure. We will be going back

Room Tip: Ours was on the ground floor facing south and got the sun, in December until mid afternnon

Myself my mother and my 7 month daughter stayed here the last week in November for a week .
I have never written a review on any of the hotels I've stayed at in the past but felt this one definitely deserved one.
The hotels is not modern but typical of a Spanish hotel it's situation was brilliant right at the marina which is very pretty and the promenade which was immaculate and leads to Torremolinos which actually had some really pretty parts.
on arrival we were greeted by the hotel manager and given a glass of bubbles which I think is a nice touch, the room was extremely spacious again not modern but immaculate and a great spacious safe balcony the food was excellent loads of choice with a fabulous salad bar in the evening inc lovely fish and meats Iam not a dessert person but they looked pretty good but I did enjoy the cheese board, the staff were absolutely delightful so polite and genuine , it has a nice pool area which has a lovely bar/cafe , all and all a great hotel with lovely staff catering housekeeping and reception that would try there hardest to accommodate all your needs ( which we were very greatfull of on a few occasions ) we actually stayed the night at a 5 star hotel in Marbella on the same trip and it could learn a thing or two from the Mac Puerto Marina .

Stayed here with my sister in early October. I have stayed here before so I knew it was a good hotel. It has now changed hands but the experience was still good. Staff very friendly and helpful. Location 100%. Entertainment not great but plenty of bars around. Unfortunately no gardens but pool area very clean with plenty of beds and cushions.

Room Tip: From memory I think we had room 231. It did not have much of a view as it faced a side road but was...

Just returned from a long weekend in the Mac Puerto Marina. We were away for my wife's 40th birthday (sans kids - for a change).

The hotel was in a fantastic location, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the cleanliness of the hotel could not be challenged. We paid €10.00 extra a night to upgrade to a fourth floor room with a sunbathing deck. This was a great idea and we'll worth it. We were given a free glass of cava on arrival and because we booked with them direct we received an extended check out time of 2pm.

We would really recommend this hotel.

In late November Benalmadena is very quiet. We chose the Marina because we believed it would be the busiest section. The area was reasonably busy during the day although even then a lot of the bars and restaurants were closed. Passed 7pm though Benalmadena is a ghost town. We walked the length of the promenade and no bars or restaurants were open. The busiest location (we learned - slightly late) was a section at the end of the Marina or on the main road close to the roundabout at the top of the entrance to the Marina. It was very surreal though to be the only ones on the front at 8pm.

We always found somewhere nice though and enjoyed our break. The weather was warm when the sun was out, although we stood out in tShirts.

Room Tip: In later months the northern block - pool facing rooms get the sun or sea facing on the southern blo...
