Apartamentos Doramar
Ranked #35 of 45 Hotels in Benalmadena
Reviewed 27 June 2013

First of all, as I always do say, why do people slag off budget apartments....surely you know you've booked a budget apartment - this is what this facility is!! READ BEFORE YOU BOOK!
Anyway....so arrived here on the 19th of April, was a bit sceptical after reading some of the less than impressive reviews. Well all I can say is that those reviews, as usual, are dramatised to the extreme.
1. Our room was clean.
2. The staff were friendly.
3. The apartments are in a brilliant location, close to restaurants and nightlife.

True that if you want clean towels or extra toilet rolls you have to pay, I was a bit annoyed at this, but it really is self-catering with no added extras. I asked the woman at reception about this and she explained, no problems there. If your looking for a clean and cheap place to stay, stay here! If you are expecting luxury apartments you will be disappointed. If I'm in Benalmadena again, I'll stay here :)

A group of us stayed here for 3 nights we didn't pay much so weren't expecting a lot, location is good and there is free wifi available but that's the only positives!! The rooms were disgusting, dirty,mouldy and Every single person in our party got covered in bites by something in the rooms, which we are guessing bed bugs! Not surprising as the maids come to clean the rooms once a week and u must pay for clean sheets and fresh towels!!! Would never ever stay here again!!

Reception is the first impression of a place, well Anna was very friendly and helpful. We arrived mid morning so were not expecting to be let in to our room, but there was no problem. Expectations were not high for this cheap hotel but we were pleasantly surprised. the room was large and clean. Good views as we were on the 6th floor,a few English channels on the TV as well! Entertainment every night albeit it lots of karaoke! Very comfortable would definitely stay again.

Spent 4 nights here.
Booked in with the friendly Pablo & went to our room (602).
We found the room basic, but had all you need,this room I think might have not long been long redecorated, the view was very good & being high up we did not here the music from the bar below.(stops 00.45/ 1.00am).The only downside of the room was that the TV only had the dreaded World News channels in English.
A point I must add, is on the 1st evening we reported to Pablo that the shower head could not be hung up as the clip had broken, the next day it was fixed.
The apartment is in a super position for the Paseo Maritimo & Arroya etc.,
Would recommend these apartments , but get a high floor, unless of course you join in the fun in the bar & therefor the noise will not disturb you.

we booked this hotel with little expectations of grandeaur but were pleasently surprised, we are well travelled family and have stayed in both 2 and 5 star hotels.
hotel is dated but CLEAN rooms
youngsters partying every night, but not too late and reception staff sort it out quickly
pool area is okay and locals use it as well
the best thing about this hotel is the staff, absolutely fabulous they are, nothing is too much trouble! friendly and always great you with a smile, they are a credit to the hotel.
we booked this just to be next to our friends staying at the jolly pirate next door, we missed having a balcony!
tips, beach is just down the road, ask reception where the tunnel under the road is, its a short cut.
the square is well worth a visit, family orientated, also go to bonanza bar by the square for family entertainment, live singers. you must visit the marina! the highlight of our holiday, great atmosphere and gorgeous views!
on the whole i wouldnt choose this hotel for young families, if your a couple, or a family with teenagers go for it.

Room Tip: high floor, pool view
