We've just finished our 10 day vacation in Benalmadena Palace. First of all hotel has a good central location. Close to the beach, which is ok, not far from supermarket and other Benalmadena attractions. We had a rented car, but didn't use hotel parking (9 EUR/day). We could always find the parking space on surrounding streets. It could be a problem during season. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to the people without kids. It is a tipical family hotel with all its conseqences. Huge noise during the meal. Appartments are generally ok, but in our opinion solid renovation would be our advise. For a four star hotel it was strange that in-room safe was a paid option (2,5 EUR per day). Strange. The level of cleanliness was average. Especially in the restaurant. Tablecloths (places as a permanent element) placed under the proper tablecloth were dirty and it didn't look good. We took the half board option for meals and it was a good choice because we didn't want to cook. But...food was a little disapointment. Looked very good, but tasted below average. During dinners there is a pianist playing some music. It is a total disaster. I would appreciate it in lounge room, bar, listening to nice jazz or other music, but not during dinner where dozens of kids yealing trying to be louder than the piano. For me the unaceptable situation was at the pool area. Hotel started to repair terrace and pool itself (safeguards were constantly sticking the flacking tiles) during our stay which resulted in noise during the day when people wanted simply to have some relax. Repairs like this should be conducted before the season (during winter preferably) but not in front of tourists staying in the hotel.

We travel around with our two children as digital nomads and occasionally stay in hotels when we are between places to live. After meeting a great 'animadora' called Sandra through friends, we decided to stay at the Palace in January and then again in April. We have been in Spain for 4 months and during that time we have been learning Spanish. The staff were always patient and willing to chat which was great for our language practice! In 6 days Carolina gave me an amazing new haircut, Raquel a great workout, Sergio tasty cocktails. Manuel you work so hard morning and night! Patrice and the other entertainers had us in stitches with their charmingly kitch entertainment. The children felt safe to explore the grounds, made loads of friends and never wanted to come out of the kids club thanks to Laura and Andrea. While all of this was going on we continued to work using the hotel wifi in the adequately sized and fitted room. This is a very reasonably priced hotel my opinion.

We stayed on a self-catering basis. The cooking facilities/equipment were basic, but enough to prepare a simple breakfast or snack. We were on the 7th floor. There are 4 lifts so no problems there. There is a steep hill up from the beach, but the hotel provides a bookable free minibus hire. You can also miss out the 2nd hill by coming back through the car park. There is also a 2nd path marked "to the beach" which is much more accessible. For security, the gate closes at 8pm. The room was of a studio type, I think classed as having 2 bedrooms - there were no doors, so not really suitable if you are travelling with a group of friends and want more privacy! The bedroom ceilings sloped quite steeply, causing a couple of bumped heads. The hotel was very clean, and we loved the indoor pool. There seemed to be plenty of sunbeds around the outdoor pool. Drinks prices were not too bad. We did not try the food as we were visiting family who live in the area. All in all, we would recommend this hotel.

Stayed for nine nights. Booked a two bedroom apartment 10 months ago but were sent to a one bedroom (awful room above reception) and had to go and find out where our other bedroom had gone. We felt that they were trying to be sneaky and thought we wouldn't notice the lack of a bedroom.. particularly annoying as we'd emailed a few days before requesting high floor so they knew we had booked two bedroom. We were told they were overbooked and would have a two bedroom ready the next day. Not ideal but as we had nine nights so not too bad. Offered free safe for duration of holiday and one free lunch as compensation which we felt was good enough. We heard of other families that booked a two bedroom having longer to wait in a one bedroom so something to consider if you book this accommodation, I believe there are only four available so probably a regular occurance. Once in the two bedroom it was wonderful. Loads of space. It also has two full bathrooms. Large balcony with view of the mountains. Maid came daily to do beds and bins. Think we had it cleaned properly once. Anyway, apart from that, this is a great family hotel. Lots of great facilities. Indoor pool great but it's a 150cm depth so not really for young children unless good swimmers. Outdoor pool lovely setting but water very cold in April. Nice little garden area with sunbeds if you want to sunbathe away from pool. Kids club great, my daughter went there a few times. Only tried the night time entertainment once, felt that having it at 10/10.30pm was a little late for kids, we saw a magic man who seemed to be geared towards kids but didn't actually start until 10.30pm. Gym was good and there was yoga, zumba etc offered if you wanted it. Nice big arcade for kids with most games €1. Food was great. Excellent value. Loads of choice. Full english if you wanted it for breakfast but also healthy stuff - cereals, fruit etc. Pastries and cakes galore. Good freshly squeezed OJ. Coffee machines offering all the usuals. Dinner had lots of meat cooked in front of you. Fillets of chicken and steak. Lovely roast pork. Fish. Paella. Great salad selection. Kids buffet with fish fingers, nuggets etc. Always pizza. Puddings a bit sickly but loads of choice. Drinks fairly priced. Location of the hotel wasn't great. Close to the beach but you had to cross major duel carriageway. Beach OK. Shingly. Couldn't see a life guard at all but maybe because of the time of year? Long walk to Marina, may be a bit much for small children. Felt a bit ambushed by sellers along the way. 'Dia' supermarket (like Aldi, Lidl) just down the pink path (turn right at the exit to indoor pool then left). Supersol supermarket a bit further along past the garage. We caught the bus to Malaga, 45 minutes, cost €6 each way total for four of us. Lovely place to wander around. Also visited Benalmadena Pueblo. Stunning, must see! And the cable car up the mountain is amazing. There is a bird of prey show at the top twice a day so time it right to see that.
