Great Hotel

Posted 11-Nov-2014
Pros: Great location, beautiful rooms, friendly staff
Cons: Breakfast and a couple of evenings main meal served as a buffet - hot food only room temperature or cold - serving dishes not hot.
Location: Village has many bars and restaurants to suit any needs - be ready for a very steep walk
We have just returned from 7 days at the Gran Benahavis as a celebration of my partners special birthday.

Far from the madding crowd

Posted 04-Nov-2014
Pros: The rooms are of good proportions. The hotel enjoys a picturess setting with friendly staff
Cons: Some of the soft furnishings (curtains) are a little tired and could do with replacing
Nice hotel short walk to the very pretty village of Benhavis wich is very friendly with some most excellent restruants at reasonable prices. Would strongly recommend hiring a car to visit the surrounding areas.

nice hotel, superb location

Posted 01-Oct-2014
Pros: everything except their WiFI
Cons: Only one issue - the WiFi which was very "iffy" - slow, unresponsive and non-existent sometimes. There is really no excuse for this nowadays
Location: excellent location, quiet and picturesque. Within easy drive of beaches, but the local restaurants are the main attraction.
everything was very good, a great hotel. Staff were terrific (especially Sonia), the welcome was good, and the hotel is very well situated.

Nice hotel, in great village

Posted 27-Sep-2014
Pros: Location, village
Cons: Breakfast, fittings in the room, gym equipment
Location: The benahavis Safari was brilliant, rock pools nice and restaraunts in village great
Just got back from staying at the hotel for 1 week, have to bear in mind the reasonable price. The hotel is very nice in a great village, there is not many better options in the village I could see. The room overlooked the courtyard, and was typically Spanish, the showers and fitting were a little tired, the towels were a little off colour and cheap. The breakfast was average at best. The other interesting fact in my friends room, there was a sign stating if you put your own stuff in the mini bar fridge, they would charge you €5 a day, outrageous never heard of that before. The gym was rubbish, too hot for cardio, with crap equipment. On a positive note I am being picky but honest, a really great location with great pools and landscaping.

September Break

Posted 21-Sep-2014
Pros: Beautiful hotel completely in keeping with surrounding area. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the grounds and pool area are immaculate.
Cons: Perhaps a delivery of National Papers
Location: We were collected and taken by car to San Pedro and Marbella during the day, and to the village to Chicos and a flamenco show during the evenings
This is our third stay at the hotel, using it to visit family who live in Benahavis.

Pure Paradise

Posted 23-Aug-2014
Pros: The relaxed and informal atmosphere. The fact that no one was in your face, no one was too pushy nor too snobby. It's a really authentic hotel with am
Cons: If I had two improvements they would be better wi fi and different bacon. Other than that I would say that the hotel in its entirety is perfection per
Location: Located in the lower basin of benahavis. Possibly the prettiest town imaginable. We were fortunate enough to enjoy a four day fiesta which was taking
We booked the hotel as a direct result of other peoples positive reviews. We arrived to find the most beautiful hotel set in amazing grounds with picturesque views of benahavis. The welcome was warm and friendly. We unpacked and headed for the pool ( a choice of two). The pool bar staff were so friendly and welcoming. The sun beds were really comfortable with thick cushions which was a delightful start. The pool area was never too crowded and we were always able to get a bed. The food at the hotel was awesome and very reasonably priced. The rooms were massive for standard rooms. I've stayed in some of the most exclusive hotels in the world and very few were this size , in fact probably none unless I had booked a suite. The room was well equipped. The spa was lovely with a steam room, sauna , 3 jacuzzis , a plunge pool with jets and two showers (hot and cold). Being a family run hotel made all the difference as we were privelaged enough to meet various members of the family who I have to say were humble, polite and passionate about making sure we were happy. I can't speak highly enough about the hotel and everything about it was simply perfect.
