Very happy
We absolutely loved the hotel, its layout, the room. Pool was very cold. The only downside is the location is just a smidge too far to any other restaurants when you lile to get out and are not all inclusive

Amazing hotel
Brilliant hotel fantastic entertainment during the day. Food could be warmer and you have to pay extra for WiFi..... seriously in an all-inclusive hotel in 2019!!!!!
Alan, gb3 night family trip

Ok for the price.
Have stayed at the neighbouring holiday village as a family (and worked there 12 years ago for a few years) I knew exactly what we were getting when I booked. The pool area isn’t as nice as it’s neighbour but the beach club more than makes up for that. Could do with a play ground. Also would be nice to be able to upgrade to all inclusive which you cannot do unless you stay for over 3 days (which means you can’t use the kids clubs and have to pay for all drinks) The kids disco is way too late (9pm) when there is nothing to do until then if you can’t access the kids club.

Remember it’s at the top of a hill 😊
Lovely hotel, clean and large room, UK TV stations. Only down side is not enough bar and seating areas, we had 2 children’s birthday parties and a wedding reception while we stayed which took up half the Bar area each day meaning no room for people stopping in the hotel to sit if it was raining.

Can do better
No indoor play area, WiFi not working, very good staff and beach club is also great
Clement, gb7 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Had fantastic family holiday - nice room , lovely sea view. It was a bit further out of town but easily accessible.Staff all very pleasant. Only downfall was really cold pools - kids didn't want to go in.Food was fine( some really tasty too ) and selection really good - chocolate fountain went down really well with kids - large restaurant can be really busy but have to say staff were nice and replenished dishes quickly - nobody need go hungry , even for fussy eaters.Sangria best I have ever had! Salads and fruit delicious as were the cakes.Breakfast had everything you could imagine. We left the hotel for a curry and thoroughly enjoyed as having meal served was nice change.Used the Chinese restaurant on site and it was tasty.Would love to return again if the price was right for us.Check out at 12pm was helpful too. We were there for 10 days but could have easily stayed longer. Kids used kids club a few times and they enjoyed it - staff were great. our room was cleaned every day with plenty fresh towels - the maids were also pleasant and friendly. The staff are a real asset to the hotel and would be happy to be of help if requested - nothing seemed to much trouble. Have to mention the sunbeds - they really do need updating as they cant be adjusted and the mattresses on the beds could do with a topper for more comfort. Air conditioning was good.
ELIZABETH, gb10 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Unless you are on a fully inclusive deal you are not really welcome at this resort. We were unable to eat in any of the resort hotels and had to use taxi's to get into Benalmadena which cost a small fortune as it's in the middle of nowhere and there are no bars/restaurants around.
