We had a great stay at the Best Benalmadena for a long weekend. Our room was large and clean, with a similar spacious bathroom. We had a twin room, with two nearly-double bed, which was great. The room decor was a little dated, but not a big problem. We were all-inclusive, which felt like great value. The restaurant was clean, food regularly replenished and a decent range of options. There were vegetarian options, but were sometimes a little bit limited. Some food could be better labelled for those with special diets and allergies. The restaurant staff were friendly and attentive and there were a wide range of drinks available. Similarly, the bar staff were excellent. The pool area was clean and tidy, but can imagine it gets a little crowded in busier periods.
The hotel is about a 50 minute walk or 10-15 minutes in a taxi to the centre of Benalmadena, so if you're wanting somewhere in the middle of things this might not be the place for you. But if you're looking for somewhere a little quieter with a nice seaside walk into the town, this is absolutely ideal.
We were there in March, during a period when Spanish pensioners get subsidised holidays, and so the hotel had a lot of older guests. This was actually lovely as it meant the hotel had some hustle and bustle at a usually quieter period without it getting too busy.More
