The hotel is modern and functional. It is very clean and during our holiday period, quiet. The size of the room and the bath were sufficiently. The wardrobe is big with enough hangers and there are comfortable mattresses. Everything is very clean and we felt very comfortable, The restaurant is very busy and is reminiscent of a dining room. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. On new year's eve and new year's eve there was adapted to the occasion special treats, otherwise the meals were the different nations adapted. The spanish cuisine was a bit too short. We used ... this hotel as starting point for our excursions in the surrounding area. The infrastructure is good and there is parking nearby the hotel. read hotel review

In the large and overall we were very satisfied with the hotel. After the check in we changed the room, since the large air conditioning/generator in the courtyard i was too loud. We got a room on the swimming pool in the annexe building. Disturbing were the two fixed meal times. You couldn't comfortably broad food, because already for the next tour, or for the breakfast was already set. The restaurant ' olé' we have twice visited. Small cozy restaurant with about 12 tables. The food was good, but not exceptional. Average age was 70, we were teenagers. Here we ... could observe, how we perhaps in 10-15 years. Electric wheelchairs, walkers etc. probably can be rented. read hotel review

    Neither in a hotel in Spain or elsewhere i have such a coffee. Even a lot of dilution with milk and water used nothing (also last year in Hotel Best Benalmádena and even in the 3 star Hotel Best Siroco the coffee was good). Complaint with the manager did not help. It should not be difficult, so a bit to improve. Elsewhere it but also. I welcome the quality of the meals not very tasty. In the first week the food was good. Then there was the vegetables were overcooked, the meat tough, the sauces thin like water. Even if the chef is not there, you could but good food. From a Riu hotel i expected more (like for example the great food in the Hotel Best Benalmádena). 2 once we were in the restaurant ole. Obviously we had luck and the chef was there: tapas, very delicious, the fish good, the filet steak tender. As dessert there was vanilla ice cream with hot cherries or hot strawberries. The atmosphere in the restaurant ole is very nice, in the 'normal' restaurant i thought it was a 'food'. The tables stand very closely together, tiles missing. Leyzer could it be, if the guests low maintained would.

    The hotel is located directly on the beach and the promenade. On the promenade were different shops, restaurants, bar open. In the vicinity is Lidl, where the bus stop. However, if you want more of the beautiful surroundings can see, you can go to about 1 kilometer away from the hotel büel direction Benalmádena. There you should definitely take the bus (112,122) mijas in the mountains to take, the la paloma park (you should definitely visit), ayro miel (city centre Benalmádena), Benalmádena pueblo (white village) that goes. Travel expenses 1,60 Euro. A drive to Marbella costs 4,50 Euro. The best to fuengirola and then to Marbella. The bus stops right in the thick of the city. From there, take a bus to the 7 kilometer away harbor 'Puerto Banus'. The bus connections are very good. Of course, you can also excursions on tour operators book.

There are 2 different sizes: some single rooms are smaller and have only one door and a small balcony, the other in addition a large window and a large balcony. Mini bar is available. Bathroom and toilet were new and very nice. A large flat screen tv is available. German channels you get for this region very much : ARD, ZDF, RTL, RTL 2, RTL nitro, bar, swr, n-tv, 3 satellite, ZDF culture

    The breakfast buffet is as always in Riu sufficiently equipped and also qualitatively good. The coffee is however unfortunately also here, as in many hotels in Spain and Portugal for the german taste to be desired. The evening buffet was good. It was noticeable, that the food quality in the absence of the chefs, due to free days, something fell off. The showed zerkochtes vegetable and the presentation of the main courses. The christmas buffet am25 dezemberließ again no wishes open. But if you over christmas looks for peace, is here wrongly at the place, as the holidays, the hotel was fully booked and the restaurant in the evening very fully, and also in the 2. session. Before the holidays and then it is however pleasantly quiet. The praises made to the specialty restaurant (?) Olé we can not completely understand. The atmosphere is very good, the starters buffet very good with a large selection of different tapas. The main course was unfortunately totally overcooked (fish) and the alleged beef fillet was gewüfeltes filet, which was so not in the menu was noted, moreover, through-roasted and tough. Quite quickly after the main course was asked the dessert (no individual bestellmöglichkeit ) brought, which was tasteless cakes consisted. This has created for us the impression, one should please as fast as possible the restaurant leave again.
