“Very good hotel”

I really should recommand this hotel: close to the beach, next to the beautiful harbour, nice rooms, delicious food and a very nice staff. The service in the restaurant was perfect thanks to Billy and Lorena!

We recently stayed here for 2 weeks. I think everything has been said about this hotel, the staff are excellent. There are plenty of sunbeds but you do get the usual early morning reservers out. Having said that, the sunbeds are very close together and you need to pick your position carefully unless you want to share a smokers habit. We had a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the courtyard and enjoyed sitting on our balcony with a drink watching the entertainment in the evenings. The air conditioning was very effective and having a fridge for our drinks was really useful.

The Jet2 rep was not particularly helpful. I asked him for a map of the resort and he gave me directions to the Tourist Information Office. When I got there, it was closed so I asked at Reception and they gave me one straight away.

We visited Benalmadena Pueblo and Mijas Pueblo on the bus. The bus driver calls out when you have reached Benalmadena Pueblo so make sure you sit at the front so you can hear him. We also walked to Crocodile Park which is next to the water park. It was really interesting but you only need a couple of hours there.

Our best excursion was to Gibraltar. If you have never been, it is well worth visiting. We travelled with The Excursion Centre, they advertise in a free newspaper called The Holiday Guide which is available in the British bars & restaurants. You just need to phone them to book yourself on the trip and you pay on the coach. We used the payphone outside the hotel and the phone was answered in English. The cost was 12 Euros each and Jackie our guide only spoke English. We had 5 hours in Gibraltar. Make sure you take British sterling to use there, it is duty free so a litre bottle of Smirnoff vodka cost me £5.75.

Lastly, the best tapas we had was at Bar Meson Antonio. It is in the square by the border with Torremolinos on the main road at the back of all the English bars. This is where the Spanish go and it is always busy at lunch times and later in the evening. We had 8 tapas dishes with bread, a bottle of wine & a large beer for 35 Euros. Much cheaper & nicer than by the touristy marina.

Enjoy!

We have recently returned from a 10 night stay in this amazing hotel. Our rooms overlooked the court yard which were very comfortable and exceptionally clean. There is a free mini bar upon arrival. The pool area is well maintained at all times and there are spacious sun beds. During our stay the chef cooked paella and a BBQ by the pool which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. The staff are very professionally welcoming and friendly at all times. The restaurant was spotless and an amazing variety of high quality fresh food both morning and evening. Our waiter Rafa (Brad Pitt) :) was very welcoming and friendly and the hotel should be very proud to have him as part of their team. The marina is just a short walk away which has plenty of activity all day and night. The beach is a couple of minutes walk which was very clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend this hotel and we will definitely be returning.

Fantastic hotel situated in an excellent location.
We had rooms overlooking the courtyard which were very comfortable and clean.
We used the sun terrace which overlooked the sea and never had a problem getting beds, mattresses or parasols. Towels provided by hotel for a 10 euro refundable deposit and changed at any time.
Table allocated at start of holiday (could be changed) either inside or on courtyard and kept throughout. Slight hitch on 2nd night which was quickly resolved with a complimentary bottle of wine. Same waiting staff throughout (Billy) who was a great character.
Food was to all our liking and a huge choice of quality food on offer.
Shopping and bars on the marina were excellent especially Kaleido Monet and Decs.

My daughter and I stayed here for 5 days in July 2014. It was excellent in every respect. All the staff we met were welcoming and helpful. Our room, overlooking a peaceful street, was spotless and quiet. The choice and standard of food was really good. The pool was lovely and we never had any problem finding sun beds. The beach is less than 5 minutes walk away and the picturesque port is literally on your doorstep. We had a problem with our return taxi journey not turning up and the manager on duty was brilliant. Within an hour of arriving home he had emailed me to give me advice about claiming a refund of the taxi money I had to pay. I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to anyone.

Just got back from this lovely exceptionally clean hotel set minutes away from the marina and beach. Staff are friendly and efficient, the buffet was lovely, ask for a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool the views are fab. Although there was some evening entertainment which was fine for us(40+), I would say that younger travellers would be best going into the marina for the evening entertainment. Also I am not sure that this hotel would be suitable for people with very active teenagers. My 14 yr old loved it for the pool, buffet and free wifi.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a room over the pool for the quiet and the view of the sea
