“Good Christmas break”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Very good hotel. We arrived late on the 23rd December due to the adverse weather in the UK but were welcomed by the friendly efficient reception staff with a glass of cava and they had laid on a very nice meal even though we arrived at 11 pm. Food was plentiful during our stay and the Christmas Eve meal was superb. Our room was very nice. Our only complaint was that the bar could have been open Christmas Day lunchtime as due to the bad weather we were unable to get to the local bars. Evening entertainment was very good and bar staff efficient and friendly. Yvonne and Jim Betts

Very good hotel. clean and tidy, pool area a little on the small side but again cleaned regularly, food was excellent and plenty of choice ,the staff were friendly and helpful right from checking in with a welcome glass of cava( just a nice touch). The location is really good, being right next to the Marina and the beach easy walks along the promenade to Benalmadena and Torremolinos. Evening entertainment was a bit on the poor side, but that wasn't an issue for us. Definitely worth visiting this nice hotel.

On recommendations booked here for 4 nights over Christmas. Reception staff and waiing staff were friendly and efficient. Unfortunately the food was not good. The extra cost of Christmas eve buffet was unfounded. Ok, so there was prawns on the starter table (usually just salad) and the beef on the carvery a lot better than the night before. Christmas evening roast pork had run out and they tried to fob us off with a vaccum packed roll of processed meat. When I spoke to the chef she had no apologies, just said it was pork!!! We checked out a day early.

Right next to the beach and close (2 min walk) to marina. Great place for a short break. Didn't spend long at the hotel but the breakfast was nice and the pool was nice too. Right in the centre of everything.

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.
