The Vistamar Hotel Benalmadena. This is probably one of the best hotels on the coast, its top notch of standard and well kept. What i liked was it was none intrusive. On arrival we was checked in fast and found our apartment with the best views and so much room.

our Star Hotel Selection_083Lovely balcony with massive bedroom and lovely bathroom / shower – lots of room in bathroom. All cooking essentials and fridge and microwave and even a table to eat it on! Nice chill out area with two setees and a tv with multilingual channels which was great when chilling. Air con was spot and worked as a heater on the colder xmas nights!. When we arrived we noticed our balcony door was broke and this was fixed straight away.

Plenty of towels and soaps/toiletries. Ive seen reviews of bad location and entry is hard as its steep. These are wrong the location is great and very close to lots of pubs and restaurants and 10 mins to the main drag with bars all the way! disabled access is no problem as you can access the building at the bottom of the hill with not having to walk up any hill just pop our card in which opens the gate and you get a lift to the floor you want! The bar has happy hour from 5 – 6 which is great as the pints are only 2.50 which is very fair priced! had some karaoke on but as a entertainer didnt rate, didnt really ask people to get up and he just sang all night! slot machines, swimming pool – pool tables – cracking.

Free secure underground parking with secure gates.

Have to finish of with one negative feedback – the wireless access points are all over the hotel but the uplink is broke, if you ask for wifi then i was told you can get this in the lobby? i connected to the others around the hotel and they are available and connect but not internet access. As a IT engineer this is evident the uplink to the access points is broke which isnt hard to fix. For such a amazing hotel to be let down by not fixing and supplying internet to all the building is such ashame – when the wifi is working ill 100% return – or give me a room and ill come back and fix them for you and ill sing in the hotel and give the customers some decent entertainment – this is 99% the best hotel for sure just these little niggles .
