Comments:

Great resort for relaxing, shopping or sightseeing. Lovely beach, plenty of bars and shops, great marina, several markets and some fantastic attractions. Centrally located for access to other resorts such as Malaga, Mijas and Arroya and Gibralter is only a couple of hours away! I would recommend this resort to all age groups as there is something for everyone within easy reach.

Useful Tips:

Paloma Park is a great place to relax and enjoy the wildlife for children and adults alike. The cable car up the mountain from Arroya de Miel allows fantastic views of the resort and beyond and the bird of prey show is excellent (make sure you're up top before 1pm or you'll miss out). Lizzies lounge bar is a great bar if you want an enjoyable evening without the usual big screen TV's showing soaps, sports etc. The drinks are very reasonable, mine hosts Liz & Brian are great company and you also have the option of various quizzes, the odd game of bingo or just a relaxing quiet drink.

Comments:

The Resort itself was great but if you have never been before beware it is very hilly. The beach is nice and theres a flat sea front but a steep hill down to the beach. Weather was lovely.

Booked a week's holiday with OTBeach Travel to Benalmadena for 8 nights in April 09. The holiday was reasonably priced with civilised flight times and great self catering accommodation. The resort was extremely clean with friendly locals. Would definitely go again.

Useful Tips:

The marina at Benalmedena.
