“Very good for couples.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

We were looked after very well and thought the staff were the best thing about this hotel. Nothing was too much trouble and it´s the only place we´ve stayed where even the cleaners are cheerful and say hello when you pass them. Everywhere was very clean and well maintained. The outside areas are lovely. Nice swimming pool and bar with sun shades and good sun beds. The room was super. Clean, big bed, nice bathroom and a decent size. I agree with all the good comments about the food and restaurant. A massive choice and extremely well presented with fruit carvings and new things to try every night. Breakfast was enough to keep us going through till dinner! Again great staff and a pleasure to dine there. The location is great and very convenient and the area of the port is lovely. We would definitely think about staying here again.

I recently visited Benalmadena for the Costa Del Folk Festival and although the event was being held in a different hotel, I'd heard good reviews of this one and with it being slightly cheaper and available on a package deal, I decided to book this instead...and what a great decision...

When I arrived to check in, the reception staff were very friendly and gave some helpful advice about the hotel, the free wifi and eating arrangements, but what really sweetened the deal for me was the complimentary glass of champagne I was treated to - a lovely welcome :)

The room itself was spacious, airy and clean, plus I had a telly - always good for those 'dead hours' during the festival! I also had a balcony, but most impressive of all, I had complimentary water, juice and beer in the mini bar - boom - winner!

I was pleasantly surprised to discover I'd booked the holiday on half board and was entitled to a dinner sitting and breakfast each day. Sadly I can't speak for the breakfast as I was too lazy to get up in time for it, but I can certainly say the evening meals were plentiful and very tasty. There was everything from soups and salads to meats and fish, and for the veggies like me there were veggie pastas, ratatouille and pizzas to name a few dishes.

If I thought the main course was tasty, the desserts were a real treat, with everything from fruit and cheese and crackers to cakes, trifles, mousse and ice-cream...I'm drooling now just thinking about them!

For me, the hotel was in a perfect location - just a five-ten minute walk from the festival venue and right on the marina, so I could have a lovely potter along when I wasn't singing or dancing along to some of my favourite bands!

The only downside about this hotel was the noise - if you're a light sleeper, then I would recommend ear-plugs. It's not noise from outside the hotel, more from other guests and the cleaners moving furniture around in other rooms.

Overall a wonderful hotel, great staff, great food and a fabulous location. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend to fellow travellers.

We spent one night in this hotel and would definitely go again. The room was nicely furnished and the beds very comfortable. First class food for dinner and breakfast (buffet). Excellent value for money and super location by the Marina.

Very impressed with this hotel and especially the staff who work here. The reception is lovely and the lady was very polite and nice when we checked in. Our room was much bigger than expected and had a very nice bathroom, also big. The balcony was very nice to have as we sat out quite a lot and enjoyed looking at the swimming pool and all what was going on outside. We were half board and thought all the food was excellent. Great selection and we never got bored as they changed the dishes on a daily basis.

Returned on 22.03.2014 from a seven night stay at this hotel. Really good location and excellent staff. The hotel is kept very clean and tidy. The food was a little bit limited on choice but what choice there was, was well cooked and well presented. We were in one of the rooms overlooking the road at the front and our balcony had two sets of doors ensuring virtually total silence from passing traffic.
My only criticism would be the tiled corridors where every latecomers or early leavers would rattle along with an audible echo. I accept that this has to be the case in many hotels but it is still not nice to woken up at 3am by someone with heels clip clopping along.
All in though this hotel represented excellent value. Most amazing was the Free W-fi in every room and the welcome pack of six drinks in the room fridge.
Another small point is none of the rooms have tea making facilities so if you like an impromptu drink take your own kettle.

Room Tip: Do not be put off by the rooms overlooking the road they really are soundproofed.

My mum had stayed here before and highly recommended it so we gave it a go. We were very happy with everything about this hotel. My boyfriend and I are quite fussy eaters but the buffet had so much variety it was easy to find things we liked and the waiters in the restaurant are so nice. You get allocated a table which I think is better, and our waiter memorised our names and even what beer we drank! Lovely room with lots of space and the idea of putting welcome drinks in the fridge is great. The location is fantastic as you can just go outside and walk everywhere. Really good flat beach side walk which was ideal for a fast walk every morning to get the appetite up for breakfast! Cannot fault this hotel and worth every penny.
