Not Good Hotel

This hotel is stuck in the 70s with its depressing rooms ,awful food ,and lack of intrest in clients comfort .The manager knows all the faults as they have been mentioned in other reviews and he still does nothing to fix any problems .So I am just going to say we will never stay at the Palmasol again . The hotel tried to make me pay for my stay again even though I paid Alpharooms in full and had the voucher issued by Alpharooms .The hotel called me to receiption during my stay and said I had to pay for my stay as Alpharooms would not pay them and I could claim a refund off Alpharooms when I got home .I refused to pay them again and tried to call Alpharooms on their number they give on the voucher if there is any problems and guess what nobody at Alpharooms answered my calls ,I am still trying to call them and still nobody will answer, so Alpharooms helpline is NO HELP at all . Never again will I book with Alpharooms because I still dont know if they have paid the Hotel for my stay .according to the Hotel I still owe them for my stay.

Great Location

We stayed here Aug. 31-Sep. 9/16. The best thing about the hotel is its location. It is close to the marina for shopping, restaurants and cafes, the Carihuela for shopping more restaurants and cafes and also close to the bus stop just up the street and the supermarket up the street also. The pool was nice compared to some others that would be considered on the beach but really across from the beach. The food yes could be better with more spices used on the meats but there was quite a bit of selection and I never went hungry at any meal and ate more than at home. The staff were always helpful. It seems every transaction is only done with cash. You had to pay for the in room safe, tours and any extra drinks at the bar or in the restaurant by cash. I imagine this is because of credit cards fees and the state of the economy in Spain which is understandable but nice to know ahead of traveling to this area of Spain as I only saw one shop with a sign that the accepted credit cards. You should take your own towel otherwise you rent or buy one from the hotel. We chose to buy one up the street for 6 Euros rather than the 3 Euro daily rate. The tour we took to Nerja, the caves and Frugliana was great but just note there is about an hour of hotel pick ups and also drop offs making your 5hr half day tour turn into 7hrs. So you may want to consider taking the bus which is only nominally cheaper than the tour. The choice is up to you. All in all an enjoyable stay, no complaints really for a 3 star, it suited our needs perfectly. We even got a view of the sea for no extra charge. Thank you Palmasol for an enjoyable 9nts at your hotel!

Never again!

Stayed for 6 nights. There was a leak from the above bathroom on our first day which resulted in filthy bath water pouring through the light of our bathroom. Destroying our stuff. Alerted the reception and the maintenance department attended, cut a hole in the roof and covered the massive hole with a pillow cover. Went down to reception looking to be allocated a new room as we didn't feel the electrics were safe after all the water that had penetrated the light and the repair was shoddy. I was met with complete ignorance at the reception desk and they advised the leak was repaired and these things can happen in buildings and the maintenance man said everything was okay, when he hadn't even checked the light! Refused a new room as there were 'none available' after much discussion, I was advised to come back in the morning and they would change our room. I didn't accept this and ended up speak to the manager who advised we would be put in a different room for the night and relocated the next morning. He apologised and offered to upgrade is to full board. I would never stay in this hotel as I was met with such bad customer service at the reception and they didn't seem to understand the severity of the issue. All my makeup was ruined as a result of the filthy dirty water that leaked down onto our stuff in the bathroom and the lack of action towards a severe health and safety issue. Totally off putting on what should have been a relaxing holiday.

Food and Pool let it down

Central location was good, pool small not enough room for people to sunbathe and not enough sunbeds so went to beach which cost us more. Evening meals poor ate out 3 out of 7 nights in the end. Maid service was good and room was very clean. Shower though leaked onto the floor under the the shower screen.

Good location

We stayed for 6 nights. Hotel is lovely and clean. Our room was on the top floor so was very quiet. Wifi was poor but it's available all over in the nearby bars and restaurants. Maid came every day leaving fresh towels. We only went to the pool once and had no trouble finding beds. Lovely big chill out zone up near the bar area with beds and pillows. We didn't really eat here just having breakfast a couple of times.... it's your standard buffet style something for everyone affair. Had better and had worse. Location is brilliant. Minutes away from the Marina with the beaches of Benalmadena or Torremelinos either side both only a short distance away. If you want a good base a stones throw from everything the resort has to offer then this fits the bill nicely

Another enjoyable stay in the Palmasol Hotel, Benalmadena

From the moment we arived at the hotel everything was lovely, the reception staff were friendly and helpful. This was our 6th year to stay in this hotel, sometimes twice a year. The restaurant staff were also very friendly, many of them have been here for the last 6 years we have been starying here. The pool grounds are lovely but the only problem we had was that the pool closed at 6.00pm every day. Much too early.

The best thing about my stay was...

Friendly staff, near to the beach and marina.

Great Hotel

Sixteen of us aged between 18 and 50 came out for a 50th birthday. Didn't know what to expect but we were all extremely happy, nice clean hotel with plenty of food choices, all inclusive bar was good too, with quite a lot of different drinks, and very nice to get peanuts and crisps too. Large screens outside for the football. 5 minute walk to the marina, beach and restaurants, bars etc if you don't want to stay in the hotel, and not far from the main road, for buses etc. The pool area opens at 10am until 6pm with plenty of sun loungers. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

The best thing about my stay was...

Clean hotel, friendly staff, central location, ideal for large or small groups.

Good 3 star hotel

Our group of women stayed here for 4 nights. My Mother is in a Wheelchair and it wasn't great for Disabled access. We couldn't even fit the wheelchair in the lifts. Clean hotel, food ok with enough choice.

The best thing about my stay was...

5 minute walk to the Marina so good central location.

Great few days in the sun

A very well placed hotel close to the marina and all the madness benalmadena has to offer, you should be aware there could be large groups of men and women staying over the weekends as it is a location where hen and stag parties head to ! We noticed a difference with who was staying from the Friday !

The best thing about my stay was...

A very clean and tidy hotel with beatiful gardens and pool area.
