“A WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL HOTEL !”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

Any hotel is only as good as its staff.. That is why this hotel (despite only one star) is quite probably the most exceptional place I have stayed. This family who run this establishment gave you a very warm welcome, and genuinely treated ALL their guests as friends not customers. As airline crew I stay all over the world in many 5* hotels, never have I stayed in such well run and delightful place. This family should run a major chain of hotels and teach them how to run the hospitality business. We only unfortunately stayed two nights as we normally travel to Gibraltar, but saw this one and decided to give it a try for a change as the rock hotels were full.
Too numerous to mention but here are a few reasons to stay....

1. The family who treat their guests with genuine warmth.

2. Exceptionally clean. (I think even the flies were scared to come in, the owners wouldn't allow it!)

3. Breakfast was unbelievable... Just read the other reviews... And so cheap ! I still have stomach ache from eating too much of the delicious fare on offer YUM!

4. I had room 12 which had a balcony which was lovely but overlooked the street, however many other rooms even had their own terraces with far reaching views to the sea.

I could go on but it seems like the previous reviewers have said it all. I will be recommending this hotel to travellers when I am flying to Marbella (or Gibraltar) next. I don't really want to as if it is too popular I may not be able to get a room myself !

If Rosa, her husband or daughter are reading this review , Many thanks for a wonderful break.

Only one small down point (although not the fault of the hotel) for less able bodied clients the hotel is reached by a relatively short, but very steep incline, which I know was a problem for at least one of the guests that I spoke to even though she also loved the hotel.

Room Tip: DON'T use the taxis from Benalmadena to B.Pueblo, they are a total rip off €30.00 on a Sunday. M...

We stayed for a week at the end of June 2013. Every aspect of our stay from start to finsish was excellent. The room was exceptionally clean, the breakfast perfect from the homemade yogurt and rice pudding, fresh fruit and fresh orange juice to the great bacon and various eggs and pancakes mentioned in the other reviews. The owners Rafael, Rosa and their son were superb hosts. They were very friendly and helpful for the whole of our stay and obviously work really hard to maintain their lovely little hotel. We would love to return to this hotel next year and definitely would book one of the rooms that has a private terrace. Benalmandena Pueblo is a great little village with a variety of restaurants all of which are very good. We discovered the public swimming which is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel a few days before we left which was lovely to go when it got too hot if you didn't want to get the bus down to the beach.

Room Tip: rooms to the rear have a balcony and the ones on the top floor have a bigger private terrace, which...

We booked, as others have, on the strength of the reviews and found they exceeded all expectations! This family run hotel, in Benalmadena Pueblo, gives a taste of the real Spain. The hospitality was totally genuine and the pride taken in providing everything for the comfort of guests was remarkable. Value for money is outstanding here. The breakfasts are both sumptuous and delicious with everything homemade from the blueberry pancakes through the ice cream to the traditional rice pudding and cinnamon dish. If you thought that didn't sound like breakfast then you must expand your culinary horizons! Alongside the full range of fruit, cereals, breads, cold meats, cheeses, bacon and eggs, yoghurts etc came the individual and wonderful innovations - for us at least - mentioned above. Rosa, Rafael and their family have created something very special at Casa Rosa and we shall certainly be returning.

My wife and I have just returned from 5 days at the Casa Rosa. We booked because of the reviews on this site and hoped that it would live up to the expectation. Did it live up to those expectations? No, it surpassed them!!! Rafael & Rosa are incredible hosts who genuinely strive to deliver a fantastic holiday experience. The hotel and the village are immaculately clean and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Our September holiday has always been to Orlando yet due to our experience at Casa Rosa we have decided to return there instead. Believe the reviews, this place is a hidden gem! If you have any doubts, forget them, go and experience the hospitality of Rafael & Rosa. You will not regret it!!

Just got after one week holiday words cant describe it the hotel is fantastic so clean. Breakfast is amazing but beware you will need bigger size clothes for going home. It is like a four course breakfast. To cap it all of pancakes are amazing. Rosa and family are wonderful you feel as if u have known them for years. If you can get sea view its to die for. Going back in september we cant wait. Definately not one star hotel

How can you keep a hotel so clean, make food so good, be so friendly and then have rates as affordable as Casa Rosa. The view and sun terrace in our room was so beautiful. I just hope all these rave reviews don't make it too popular!

Room Tip: Get a sea view room it's beautiful!

I loved my stay at this charming hotel. Never have I been to a place so immaculate, friendly, welcoming, comfortable and more...
My room was a dream, light and airy, beautiful comfortable bed and furnishing's and a terrace to die for!..sunbeds, table and chairs and the most amazing view, I had to keep pinching myself and check that no one had stolen the view!
Rosas' breakfast was a culinary delight, you would have to go and enjoy the experience, the beautiful fresh food is put together with love and fairydust!!
I will be returning soon.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very nice.
