    Nice hotel, with friendly staff. The bathroom was quite small but OK. The hotel is in a very good position, just off the beach and central.

    Great stay - would definitely recommend
    I took my mum to Hotel Balmoral in Benalmádena for her birthday and we had a lovely time. The location of the hotel is excellent - very close to the beach and all amenities and being second row from the beach it avoids the busy main road with all the vehicles going up and down. We still had a sea view on floor 2 - I imagine the view was even better higher up. The buildings on the front row are little restaurants so no big hotels blocking the view. The staff were fantastic - very friendly and welcoming. We went half board and the food was excellent - lots of choice and always fresh. However, I somehow ended up with food poisoning on the second day which we think was due to arriving late on the first night and requesting a cold dinner as we missed our meal. We are not sure how long this was left out for and could have been the cause so I spent the next day in bed very ill and couldn’t eat a thing. My mum also had a bit of an upset stomach that morning but not the whole hog like me 😂 Overall, the room/hotel was very clean and we would stay again, just maybe avoid a cold dinner if arriving late!

    a royal experience at the Balmoral
    We had a lovely but brief 4 night stay at the Balmoral. We stayed half board and the breakfast was very filling. Evening meal was varied and there was something for everyone and plenty of it. Desserts with lovely. Complimentary fizz the one night, however please be aware you can't bring your own drink to evening meal but this is fair enough. Nice clean pool, nightly entertainment however not really to our taste and we could here it from our bedroom as it was nextdoor. Not a major issue as it was finished by midnight each night. Location is ideal as it is at the quieter end of Benalmadena beach and less than 100 metre walk on the flat from the beach. Lots of the hotels around Benalmadena are up steep hills so this was ideal. Would happily stay here again.
