        enjoyed stay good pool area.

        bathroom nice room poor, needs updating.

        It was close to the marina of Benalmadena Costa. The marina has some nice restaurants and shops.

        The bathrooms had a smell like they were last used in 1970. We thought it would go away after a few days but it didn'T. And they made us pay the entire stay of a week upfront. Of all the staff only the cleaning ladies and only 1 bar tender was friendly. The rest looked like they worked under gunpoint. never again. Most reviews here were too friendly for this hotel.

        Brilliant location , close 2 Marina

      • Group of friends
        5.0

        The Hotel is in a great location and offers a range of board alternatives. We chose it for its location and because it was not a large hotel. This time we only stayed one night so it is a little difficult to summarise.

        One of the reasons we chose the hotel was because it offered a gym and an indoor pool. We were disappointed as the Gym facilities are very limited and the indoor pool was closed. The dining area was very pleasant but we found the options available slightly limited.

      • Couple
        7.0

        Rooms and public areas were kept very clean, breakfast was good and service managed well with demand, hotel was very busy

        half board dinner was disappointing, wished we had chosen B&B, 3 star so no mini bar or tea/coffee in the rooms.

      • Group of friends
        3.2

        The location was the only good thing with the hotel. We had a duplicated booking that we did not require and could not get any return from either vendor as the hotel would not agree to the refund, even though we did not use all the rooms that were booked for us. It was disgraceful that a manager would not speak with us directly after the amount of money that we had spent on the stay.

        The service, the suite that we had booked was not as per the picture, the view of the building site, the smell of sourage at the front of the hotel causing 2 people to change rooms

        Leaving

        The food was poor quality and badly presented, this combined with the fact that the hotel was fully booked and very crouded,resulted in the buffet presentation of food being chaotic. We stayed at the Palmasol in March and found the hotel filled with Spanish pensioners, people on government converlesing holidays or suffering some form of disability. In fairness we have stayed at this hotel previously [not in March] and not had this experience.

        I liked the help that we got from the lady at the reception. We have stayed there many times over the years and enjoyed the rooms overlooking the pool and gardens. Upon arrival we were put in a room overlooking the road, she said there were no rooms overlooking the pool until the next day and that she would change us the next day, which she did! Very helpful lady!

        Although the rooms were clean, I was disappointed that the shower had only half a screen, therefore the floor would get absolutely covered in water so the mat would be soaked before you could stand on it. The weather was very wet and actually looked forward to having a hot bath, but they have no baths, just showers!

      • Older travelers

        The location ofthe hotel to the marina is superb. The pool was clean and well maintained grounds.

        Are these complaints? Not serious enough for us to complain about during our stay but irritants nevertheless. Cleaning staff knocked to confirm that we meant to put out the 'Do Not Disturb' sign. Children shouting across the pool and from the pool to the bar to their parents. The hotel seemed to be mainly All Inclusive so not much provision or advertising of food/drink availability to the guests who were not on that basis. The lifts were slow and extremely slow.
