Reality review

This is a reality review of this so called 4 star hotel, which is 2.5 star at best. What you get, is a bed, a very small bathroom and a small wardrobe. The sink in the bathroom is so close to the toilet you cannot sit forward on the toilet, picture attached...

The corridors have not been hoovered in months, picture attached The toilet was leaking from the soil pipe picture attached The bath tub was rusty

What you have to pay for :- iron, kettle and the safe in your room, clearly this hotel is trying to claw back money in any shape it can.

The drinks from the bar are very poor quality, but the service is ok.

Noise

Review by gauntys Kendal, United Kingdom

Only writing this review after reading a recent one from a couple who were unhappy after being told to turn down the volume on their TV. Unlike them, we do like to go out and have a few drinks, as a result I can normally sleep through anything! However the noise from the rooms above/below/next door was absolutely awful. One morning I was woken up at 4am by a couple of blokes having drinks on their balcony...

Another morning at 8am, a Spanish lady let her daughter run up and down the corridors for around 20 mins shouting. Whoever was in the room above us seemed to be doing a sponsored walk in stilettos. I’ll never stay in any hotel again, Airbnb for us in future. I’ve given 5 stars simply because none of the above issues were anything to do with the hotel itself, just the inconsiderate guests. Otherwise, hotel lovely and clean and location was spot on. Can’t comment on food as we were room only. Just take ear plugs and expect broken sleep each night.

Poor Food, Noise issue - can’t watch TV- excellent location but cons outweigh pros! Sorry 🙄

Stayed here April 22. Hotel excellent location, al inclusive food not great, above food they have signs to say what it is, they were mixed up most of the time or else no sign at all so it was like a guessing game to what you were going to eat that night. All inclusive drinks are local drinks only unless you upgrade to premium all inclusive...

One major complaint we have is regarding the security guard. We are a couple in our mid 30’s. We don’t party/go out drinking all night. We have dinner then a few relaxing drinks and usually back in the room for 11pm/12am latest. The first night we arrived we didn’t get checked in until 10.30pm. So by the time we had got organised, settled and something to eat I was unpacking at 12.30am- around 1am we had loud banging on the door- turns out to be the security guard- saying music too loud. We didn’t have music playing just snooker which was the only English TV channel we could find and as I’m sure use are all aware there isn’t much noise in snooker. We turned the TV off and explained our concerns to reception the next morning whom apologised.

Fast forward to our 5th night in the hotel. We arrived back to the room around 12.30am- 30 minutes later once again the extremely loud banging started on the door again- and once again I was greeted with this lovely security man (NOT) music too loud. Explained once again it wasn’t music and was the TV which was at number 14 volume (check this out when use stay- not loud at all) he explained that he had three complaints from the people above, next door and down below. I closed the door, put shoes on and went to reception. I asked the receptionist to inform the hotel management that I would like to speak to them tomorrow. She replied ‘why? Now’ I said no tomorrow. I explained about the TV. I explained the price we had payed to say here and we have as much right to watch a TV on a reasonable volume as much as the complainers had a right to silence. She replied ‘ahhhh maybe the walls are thin’ I advised her that I will NEVER return to this hotel and it’s a disgrace that we can’t even watch TV On a TV that they have provided us with. Once I left reception to get back in the lift I heard the receptionist say ‘oh very polite’ whilst her and the security guard continued talking in Spanish. How rude- could they not have even waited until the lift doors had closed.

In April the hotel has an order crowd- I.e majority aged 70+ so deffinatly would not recommend for young families/couples/ stag\hen parties.

I have stayed in benalmadena approx 20 times. This has been my worst experience to date and I will NOT return to this hotel nor will i recommend it.

Dependable Palmasol.

Review by Jeff W York, United Kingdom

Stayed at the Palmasol several times. Its not a 5 star hotel but very clean and in such a good location. The food is not gourmet but OK for me...

Its very good value for money. The reception staff are very helpful and the cleaners very pleasent. The marina is just across the road and the bus stops at the top of the road with two beaches within 5 minutes walk. What more could you ask for. If your like gourmet food and 5 star service. Don't go. If you like good service, clean rooms and near all the action, its for you. Will return again.

Slow Cooking

Review by southyorkshiremen Barnsley, United Kingdom

Great time apart from very few staff at meal times. The chef was cooking eggs out front wasting time so queues were growing quickly while people were waiting for certain foods. Apart from this great time had by all of us.
