Encompassed by lush, landscaped gardens this beachfront getaway in Benalmádena has just completed a full refurbishment that’ll see extensive changes across the whole resort. From a light filled stylish lobby to modern rooms with neutral palettes, you’ll be able to take some ‘me’ time in the spa and wellness centre and choose from two pools with sea views. Location wise, it’s one of the best on the Costa del Sol. It's within walking distance of Torremolinos and Benalmadena and close to an award-winning marina and a lively promenade lined with restaurants and bars.

Local Area

Charming Benalmádena really does have it all. Stretches of coastline and sandy beaches, a hillside Old Town perfect for getting lost in, a marina filled with super yachts and stylish dining options. There’s plenty of culture for those who want to get their history fix including the impressive Colomares Castle that was built in honour of explorer Christopher Columbus, and Málaga, home to some great museums including the Picasso museum and the Automobile & Fashion museum.

A great escape from the UK winter in February. The hotel is well placed for walking both ways along the very long promenade with a variety of aspects to enjoy along the way. There is also a great bus service stopping outside the hotel.

Included excursions

Parque de la Paloma

1/5

The first included excursion of the week takes you to Benalmádena’s Parque de la Paloma. Located next to the promenade, this is one of the best-loved parks in Malaga and rated as one of the most beautiful urban parks in Europe. Thanks to the extensive gardens featuring eucalyptus, cypresses and palm trees, and a large artificial pond, the park has become a haven for native and migratory bird species. Parakeets, warblers, starlings, serin and grey and purple herons can all be found here as well as bee-eaters, hoopoes and crossbills. Following a four-kilometre walking trail, we’ll also have the chance to spot sea birds along the marina including gulls, gannets, shearwaters and skuas. It’s the perfect introduction to the area with plenty of time to grab an ice cream at Gelateria di Porto Marina before heading back to the hotel.
