Costa del Sol

Our hotel and resort

Adult-only facilities in a quiet corner of the lively resort of Benalmadena make this hotel the perfect retreat for our Solos guests to soak up some Spanish winter sun. Stylish interiors, three outdoor swimming pools, an alfresco breakfast buffet and evening meals under the stars. Sounds idyllic right? Our hotel has its own beach club on Benalmadena Beach where you can relax on a sun lounger overlooking the Med, and sip on cocktails whilst enjoying the sunset. There are wellness facilities on-site that will take your relaxation into ‘full-zen ‘ mode should you so desire.

The resort of Benalmadena is upmarket and packed with beaches, a quaint old town and a vibrant marina.

Rest or play

Enduringly popular with British holidaymakers, the Costa del Sol’s sheltered coast is shaped by a succession of stunning white-sand beaches, hidden coves, and fishing villages, and offers plenty to see and do, whichever direction you choose. If you’re looking to take time out to relax with a book you won’t be short of a quiet spot, or for those wanting a bit more hustle and bustle, our hotel sits in a prime central location so it’s easy to get out and about to explore. If exploring further afield is on the cards, options include heading up to the white-washed village of Mijas Pueblo for some fantastic views over to Gibraltar and even the African coastline.

Days Out

Time away from the hotel is a great way to get to know the destination more intimately. We recommend a visit to historical Ronda where you’ll find amazing views from the Tajo Gorge. Another fantastic option is to take in the highlights of the enigmatic Andalucian city of Granada. Grand medieval architecture and the famous Moorish quarter of the Albaicín are must-sees, and no trip to this beautiful city would be complete without seeing the beautiful Alhambra – the majestic hilltop fortress complex with its royal palaces, reflecting pools, fountains and Moorish art. The city is also a foodie destination!

  • Centrally located in a bustling resort
  • Short walk to the beach
