We took our grandson on a short break and wish we had of stayed longer. The hotel and staff worked really hard on the Halloween festival which was celebrated the whole weekend. Ideal beach and pool area, very clean in all hotel areas, will definitely be going back.

Second time we've stayed here. Local staff, beautiful views and beaches. Very mixed clientele; Brits, French, German, Russian...which makes for great choice at meals. Staff exceptionally helpful with what was a potentially holiday-ruining incident. Will definitely come here again.

The meal times were great and long. Cheap Massage €10 for 20 mins. All rooms had Sea View. Negatives Small cold swimming pool, the same desserts not a good variation. Could do... More

We stayed for October half term. Weather was fantastic between 23-29 degrees, wall to wall sunshine. The hotel was situated outside of benelmadena but with nearby bus service and taxi rank outside the hotel, travelling around was no problem. Buses were cheap and ran every 30 mins between Malaga and feungarola. The hotel wasn't full to capacity so no queues... More

This is a lovely hotel - definitely geared towards families but the setting, in Torremuelle about 10 mins bus journey from Benalmadena, lends itself to those looking for something slightly away from the centre. A good sized swimming pool, immaculately clean good size rooms and a sea view from all of them of the private beach - what more could... More
