Great hotel


Lovely hotel which is kept immaculately clean by the hard working staff who are all very friendly and always helpful from the reception staff to the cleaning staff the bar and restaurant staff everyone is just so nice nothing is a problem for them. We stayed half board and always found something that we liked to eat we have stayed in 3 and 4 star hotels where the food hasn’t been as good. Yes the hotel does have a lot of Spanish guests and does cater for them but if you want to eat egg and chips every day stay in the UK . We have never had a problem with the food . Location of the hotel is great handy for buses and trains also local markets.

Balmoral Benalmadena


The hotel generally and my room were fine. The staff were all friendly. The breakfasts were fine except would suggest having a wider range of cereals to choose from including oat crunch type cereals. Annoyingly, there were no bananas on offer at breakfast which are often eaten with cereal. Most english people dont eat a cooked english breakfast anymore We eat more healthily, especially if we trainkeep fitsports people! Evening meals were fine and most dishes I tried over my 15 night stay were quite good, tasty, although a couple were bad tasting. Much of the food was however cold, especially if you turned up for dinner more than about 45 mins after the dining room opens - Im sure there is something you can do to keep it hotter when it is on display? Negatives: Ok, this might be normal in your part of the world, but even the off season price of 5 euros a night for parking was still quite expensive. It should be more like 2.50 per night or offer a discount if the parking is for 10 days or more? No free drinks or water at the evening meal, so you have to pay hotel drink prices. So overall its a good hotel, and would recommend it for the price point. Good value, and I would stay again.

MedPlaya Guest Relations: Thank you John for reviewing us on Your feedback regarding the breakfast will help us to improve our choice. Regarding the drinks, only with ALL INCLUSIVE basis, are the drinks included. We regret to inform that we donacute;t have ALL IN therefore drinks are not included in half or full board. We would like also to welcome you back very soon and we take this opportunity to invite you to join our loyalty scheme AMIGO and take advantage of your stay.

No WaterTeaCoffee included with lunch or dinner


Stayed for 1 week half board in room 624 which is on the upper floors and overlooks the pool and gives you sea and mountain views. This side of the hotel also gets the sun all afternoon and evening which we were very happy with. The Hotel is a little dated but not bad by any means, the staff were mainly friendly especially the booking and reception staff who were very helpfull, also the cleaning staff were very good. Be aware though if you stay Half Board you do not get Water, Tea or Coffee included and have to pay extra for it. Also at Breakfast were you do get drinks included you are not allowed to take your drinks out of the resturant to the adjacent pool area! It would have been nice to sit and have a Tea or Coffe outside in the sun after breakfast but lots of customers were stopped by staff taking the drinks out. Likewise the Bar is shut at this time so you cannot even get a Tea or Coffee there to sit out with. Other than these 2 minor issues which the Hotel can improve on we had a good time.

MedPlaya Guest Relations Team: Thanks for your comments and for staying with us. The Half board option doesnacute;t include drinks at any hotel, we are very sorry. We take note of your comments regarding the opening times of our bar. We hope to welcome you back again in a near future, nbsp;
