Lovely little hotel.

This hotel is in La Carihuela which is situated between Torremolinos & Benalmadena. The hotel is on the main road which runs between the 2 resorts. It's approximately 5/10 mins downhill walk from the beach & shopping area. Next door is a large Mercadona supermarket. There are bus stops nearby to various other resorts. A taxi from the airport took 20 mins & was €21.

Check in was quick. I was travelling on my own but had booked a double room, & was given room 110 on the first floor, accessible by lift. The room itself was lovely, large bed, excellent air conditioning, free toiletries which included shower cap, comb, shoe polish sponge, bath gel & soaps. Large screen TV with an excellent array of English-speaking channels. Downside of the room was the "balcony". There wasn't enough space to even put a chair on so consequently, no chilling with your coffee or drinks. I had to stand & place my cup on the air con unit! Other rooms had a balcony I was just one of the unlucky ones, but, was only there for 2 nights so I wasn't too bothered but had I been there for a week with my husband or friend I wouldn't have been too pleased as it's nice to sit out & chat.

I was B&B & the breakfasts were fine, no complaints. Vast array, for such a small hotel, of various breads & cakes. Cakes don't appeal to me for breakfast but those who like sweet foods were well catered for. Plenty of various cold meats, cheeses, pate, cereals. Then the hot section, not vast, but the usual, bacon, small sausages, fried & boiled eggs & of course beans! No mushrooms or tomatoes. Oh, & there's a toaster. Nice coffee filtered, plus tea. You can take a coffee out of the dining room onto the small terrace which is handy.

There's a small pool but, to be honest, I didn't even look at it as it was behind a gate & hedge but it seemed popular.

There's a small bar that also serves snacks up until 11.30pm, which I found very useful as, being on my own, I could order something to eat & take it to my room. I had the pizza which was a decent size & delicious for €7.

The staff were extremely friendly as were the guests while I was there. Hotel is very clean. I had no complaints apart from being disappointed at my standing room only balcony.

Travel operator: None

Hotel tip: Ask for a room with a balcony that has table & chairs. Rooms at the front will incur some traffic noise as overlook a busy road.
