This is a beautiful hotel which is very well deserving of its 4 star rating. The rooms are very spacious and very clean. The food was fantastic and the enthusiasm and helpfulness of the staff made this a very enjoyable stay. This hotel is nicely situated in Benalmadena.

Good hotel - spotless and and food was excellent

Pool not that big and just a boring square.

This hotel did not strike me as being particularily child friendly

Stayed for a week from 17-24 August as a short break, during this time it was my birhday and our wedding anv. We had booked the hotel directly via the Riu website and travelled by low cost airline and booked a hirecar from airport, and made a significant saving over the cost quoted from a leading uk tour operator.

We stayed in the Riu Nautilus two years ago, the same week and had a great time there and were impressed by the look of this hotel at the time, hence deciding upon it for this year.

The hotel was very clean and rooms were spotless, we had requested a pool view room from the advice here so as not to be disturbed by the party crowd that are still going home at 7am on the road outside.

The rooms have a ceiling fan - which was a very useful thing, as the air conditioning cool air seems to shut down at 2am although the fan still runs - so by 4am in the morning the temperature in the room had risen to 26c. In the Nautilus the air con ran constantly.

Food in the restraunt was ok / good, but only ever luke warm. They operate two sittings 7pm or 8.45pm. Found some of the staff to be rather rude, walking back to your table with a plate of food, having to step aside for the waiting staff to walk through, hardly good manners or professional.

The hotel is very geared towards German and Spanish guests, in fact the only english tv channels are either Sky News or CNN.

Parking at the hotel is a problem, you can either pay 9 Euros per night for the Hotels underground car park or park in the spaces on the road outside - but these were in short supply during our stay - some of the days we did not move, other days we returned early afternoon and waited upto 45 minutes for a space to come available.

Pool was ok, just square with only ladders to enter, they have a small childs pool too - plenty of sunbeds and umberellas - had no problem getting one at both 10am in the morning or 3pm in the afternoon.

No direct access to the beach from the hotel, you have to come out of the hotel main entrance and walk along the road to the prom past Burger King to get onto the beach.

Found the Port Area to have gone down a bit, in need of some TLC - many areas used as a public toilet overnight including the area where the cars are parked outside, some lovely smells great you every time you go out. We tended to got to the bars behind the Sol Puerto and Riu Nautilus, of an evening as the bars in the port were rather quiet early in the eveing, they dont fill up until after midnight.

Whilst we had a good holiday - we would not visit the hotel again.
