Right in the middle of everything, if you don't stay on the beach in Benalmadena you have a hill to climb and the San Fermin is no worse than most.
The staff were faultless, from the cleaners to the bar staff and reception. Really excellent.
Entertainment virtualy non-existent

We found it to be better than what we were lead to believe. The food was very good and the hotel was very clean.
They had entertainment on every night and people seemed to be having a good time. They also had activities during the day.
It was a bit difficult to get a sun bed at the week end as there seem to be a big intake over the week end. We got there early on Sunday and got a bed ok and by ten thirty they were all gone. Monday there was beds left over.
The towels changed each day and even maid service on Sunday.
We are in ouur early 60's and had no difficulty with the hill.

I have to say that myself and my teenage grandaughter thoroughly enjoyed the hotel.
The staff are friendly and very helpful. The maid service is excellent. The food is very good, the restaurant is spotless clean and run very well.
Just one small gripe and that is the sunbeds, they charge 2euros per sunbed per day, which I found to be unusual, never had to pay for sunbeds in any other hotel that I have stayed. But that is the only thing that I can complain about.
Would recommend this hotel a good all round 3*** Hotel.

The restaurant was kept very clean and for bed and brekfast you couldn't grumble with what you were given, the variety was excellent although it was pretty much the same everyday.
The so called ''cardiac hill'' not at all it was fine especially after a few drinks!! Overall the hotel was brilliant and the swimming pool was cleaned everyday and to be honest you couldn't fault it. A well deserved 3*** hotel.

Situated at the top of what is known locally as "Cardiac
Hill", it is quite steep but you soon get used to it.
We used to call at some of the bars on our way up it. FAGINS BAR,run by a great English couple Doug & Yvonne, situated not quite at the bottomon in a side street on your right on the way up, is a great bar. 1 euro a pint of lager - yes cheap but very good.
Would definately visit the hotel again despite the hill.

The hotel is at the top of a very steep and is a 20 minute walk from the marina. The hotel is well situated for Paloma Park and Aroya de la mil (the spanish end of town). The hotel is only a 20 Euro ride from the airport.
There was no entertainment or kids club when we arrived in April. It did start the first week into May.

Food consisted of international fare with a real Spanish flavour. Lovely salads and soups and occasionally fresh prawns on offer at dinner. Plenty of fruit and a good selection at breakfast. Bar prices very reasonable with a good selection of wines at dinner. Entertainment was OK with a disco for the children and live music etc.
Lots of different nationalities visiting including Americans,French, UK, Spanish etc. never a dull moment!
We even had about 50 Spanish 8-9 year old boys in the hotel (a Soccer School) during the World Cup! They were playing in a tournament on the beach and came home with several trophies.
Would really recommend this hotel for the young at heart and those who enjoy life to the full!A great hotel in a lively resort but quiet enough to get a good nights sleep.

There is a charge for the sunbeds but this meant that everyone had a fair chance of getting one. The prices at the bar are bery reasonable for a hotel (cheaper than some of the bars roundabout).
The rooms weren't huge but enough for every day needs. The food was OK - fairly standard stuff and the staff were quite friendly. We didn't think much of the entertainment - it seemed to be more geared towards older people.
The San Fermin is at the top of what is called locally 'cardiac hill' but it's not too bad. There are bars on the way up too so there's plenty of excuses to stop for a drink.
For a really good Sangria, go to Chrissies Bar - it'll blow your socks off.
