We have just returned from a week at The Playabonita Hotel As you arrive it is located 4 miles away from the main Benalmadena town, 8 miles from Torremelinos and about 6 miles from Fuengirola , the hotel looks tired from the outside and this theme continues inside. Billed as a 4 star hotel there are some areas that really...

Rooms are standard European bit dated but very clean and all rooms have sea view. The location is very quiet and the staff are exceptionally good. The food was a bit of a let down for me as I found the selection limited, however the presentation and taste was good.

Both are in expensive to use. The hotel from the road does not look inviting however all the rooms have a fabulous sea...
