Best Hotel Benalmadena

Stay at the Best Hotel Benalmadena and you’re only a couple of minutes from a long, sandy beach.

The hotel’s pool is on an elevated terrace, and there’s a smaller pool for children, plus a pool bar. For the little ones, there’s a playground just steps away and a kids’ club close by.

For meals, regional and international food is the order of the day at the buffet restaurant. In the summer, themed evenings provide variety, and after you’ve eaten, live music and performances take to the stage.

Overview of Benalmadena

The Costa del Sol is one of Europe’s most famous holiday destinations. On a holiday to the Costa del Sol, you’ll find over 160 kilometres of coastline of unrivalled beaches, top-class hotels like the Best Hotel Benalmadena and a whole host of activities.

Benalmadena is a terrific coastal town with kilometres of sand, a large marina packed with restaurants and even a theme park – there’s something for families of all ages.

During your stay, you’ll find a 24-hour party square loaded with exciting bars open day or night, and an old town that’s retained its traditional charm.

Things to do in Benalmadena

At the Best Hotel Benalmadena, the beach is so close that you can see it from the pool terrace.

Take a five-minute walk and you’ll get to relaxed bars and restaurants for a peaceful evening meal away from the crowds.

If you’re looking for something a little livelier, take a 10-minute taxi ride to the port. Here, you’ll find shops, bars and restaurants that line the water’s edge. As you’d expect from the location, fresh seafood is always on the menu.

If you’re keen to stay active on your break, then a 10-minute taxi journey will take you to the local golf course, where you can work on your swing.

During your stay in Benalmadena, you’ll see why it’s called the Costa del Sol. With seemingly endless sunshine, family-friendly activities and unbeatable beaches, the whole family will fall in love with it.

Resort Summary

The town itself is split into three main urban areas – Benalmadena Costa, Arroyo de la Miel and Benalmadena Pueblo. The former is where most of the action is concentrated – running along the pristine shoreline, it is home to the majority of hotel complexes and amenities.

Set slightly further back, Arroyo de la Miel – literally “Stream of Honey” in English – is home to the majority of the region’s shops and fine dining establishments, while the Pueblo is reminiscent of other Spanish towns dotted among the mountainous areas of Costa del Sol.

As with almost any town providing cheap holidays to Costa del Sol, Benalmadena’s primary draw for most tourists is its amazing beaches. With more than eight kilometres of sandy excellence to choose from, you won’t have to stray too far to find somewhere to lay your towel. Malapesquera and Carvajal in particular have been recognised for their high levels of cleanliness and impeccable facilities with the Blue Flag standard.

Arroyo is a great option for those serious about their swimming, while Benalnatura is a nudist beach if you’re keen to return home without tan lines. Tajo de Soga and the beaches adjacent to it are secluded tend to be quite private.
