On the way we stopped at Mijas for a bit and than drove through the mountains to Marbella. The weather was rather strange, a lot if wind and temperatures of around 25 which is pretty cool for here at this time of year. We walked through the little streets of the old town which was real nice and walked down to the boulevard following the beach for a bit. But as the wind was to fresh we went back up and had some lunch on a little square before ...
... Gaal with his magical touch decided to change a player at the most critical moment, this time the goalkeeper just at the last minute to have a penalties specialist called Tim Krul !And indeed he did his job, he stopped 2 penalties and Holland only missed one so they went through, wauwwww what a pressure !! And what a relieve ! We partied till two and than went to bed. 6th We wanted to visit Marbella today so after breakfast all together we left for the ...
... the water a comfortable temperature. However, when I tried to get into the waves, the sand changed to small pebbles under my feet, very hard to balance on and the water plunged suddenly from shallow to deep. The surf was also a little rough, so I had a very short dip!
We managed to raise ourselves for a leisurely lunch of scrumptious provolone cheese fried in ...
... off his horse by a bull, they used to just do it on horse back but after “Frankie” the new way took off and his son developed the cape stuff and all that ***** in 1785 when the local bullring was opened. They still have bull fights, why it's called a “bull fight” is beyond me as the feckin bull ain’t fighting , and they still kill the bulls.....mind you I’d like to see one but we missed the next one in Malaga by a ...
... England and Wales have very high numbers on their air pollution scales, off the charts, really. Here in Spain though, we're on the edge of the system, and it's coming as rain, cloud, fog and wind. I wish I'd brought some sweats and my flannelette pajamas.
So, we set out to make the best of it each day. We've hiked some pretty spectacular mountain roads in the last few days, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Benal Beach Complex Benalmadena
Just come back from 2 Nights in the BenalBeach Hotel, Benalmadena. Fantastic Views of the Sea and gardens. Room very clean, Hotel very well kept. Facilities second to none, the pools were great, although the swim up bar wasnt open yet, as it wasnt in season! Just a short walk down to the beach and the lovely Marina. Very friendly staff, they couldnt do enough for you. Didnt see any vandalism at all while we were there. We will definatly be returning very soon. Brilliant Holiday.
me and my two friends have just arrived back from a week staying at benal beach. on arrival we were very impressed with the standard of the building.we were shown to our room which was very basic and needed up-dating but liveable. went to have a shower that evening and there was no hot water,so we showered cold not a problem.next morning awoke to cock-roaches two under living bed and one over turned on its back. complained to reception and was moved to other side of building to a different room,where on entering the room the seetee was crawling with ants,back down to reception was moved across the hall,the key wont open the door so the man on reception came and opened it evenually,he told us that we would stay in that roomand just have to struggle with the key.the pool area is lovely clean area and ideal for children and adults,i just wish that the rooms were (having the cleaner come in the day before we go).I was also disappointed that the pool bar wasnt open as it is advertised as a key feature,and having waited 6 years to stay at benal beach was really pissed off. all in all not the best place i have stayed bring it up to date and fumigate it and it will be ok.mind you the four lads next door were very impressed and said after a few beers they didnt mind what they slept with!!!!!!
Hated this hotel
This is by far one of the worst hotels i have stayed in.Stayed March 2006 as a member of Sunterra would only rate at 2star.There was no restaurant open,pools were shut if you wanted to use health club on sight you had to pay extra.We stayed in room705 block 1 the room is the only reason i would give it 2 stars,because that was clean and tidy,all the lifts were working when we stayed so being on the 7th floor did not matter,Had to check in at La Quinta about 250yards away and you could use facilities there.Very suprised that Sunterra are letting clients stay at Benal Beach because they sell you on 5 star accomadation
Really bad hotel
i went to the benal beach during new year we went up to our room and while we were walkin down the corrider a spainish came out and told us to be quiet we weret even noisey it moustly timeshares we got to our room unpacke our stuff and my daughter started to dry her hair the electricty kept on goin out so we askt he maids she siad it was a fault we packed our stuff up and moved it was the same AGAIN there were goin to move us again but we knew people who stayed at the bali so we went there bali is really good we didnt get our money back but this hotel is really dated and looks like its nees a good clean the reception is the only nice bit about it
I originally booked in at a different hotel up the road, but due to problems there we were moved to Benal Beach. This hotel was closer to the beach and amenities in the resort, and was only 15 mins from the airport (20 euros for a cab is about right). We stayed in block 3 on the 6th floor. It was out of season so the pool and slides were empty, but the room was clean and pleasant, and considering we paid just over £20 for the 3 nights we stayed, it was fab. The hotel shops were shut, again because of the time of year, but if you are wanting somewhere to simply crash and get ready for nights out, then i would recommend this as a place to stay. 11 of us stayed there on a hen weekend and for this purpose it was fine, and we didnt get any complaints about the amount of noise we made either!! AND to top it off, the weather was fabulous, it was 26 degrees!!
block 1 room 1007.top floor,great views very clean,but very dated&shabby,only paid £20 a night so what do you expect.staff great,a smile,ola,por favor,gracias goes a long way. the park across the road is a great place to catch the last of the sun with a coffee after a long walk from torremolinos along the prom.hotel has no left luggage room.so if you have late flight you leave bags in front of reception desk!!!word of warning, look out for women on prom who try to force flowers in to your hands they are pickpockets!!!we cought them as they opened our bags!!they did'nt get anything...except a few bruises.
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Benal Beach Aug/sept 2005 for 10 nights and had a very pleasant trip. We were only 19 and it was our first trip abroad and we thoroughly enjoyed benal beach. I knew what to expect really because I'd read reviews and seen pictures but having been to spain lots of times this was by far a nice experience compared to some.
Myself and my boyfriend stayed at these apartments last summer and what a complete varce.

Stayed here at the Benal Beach Apartments. I booked this apartment through a company called Flamingo Rentals via the Internet but they are located in Benalmadena. The internet company was very efficient, returning my e mails promptly and e mailing photos of the apartment. The apartments they rent out are all privately owned.
