Expert review of Plazoleta Hotel Benalmadena
I love the cosy, intimate vibe of the independent, family-run Plazoleta Hotel, a former private home set in the white-washed village of Benalmádena Pueblo. Every morning the owner, a local woman with bags of charm, rushes out to the bakery around the corner and brings back a selection of freshly-made pastries and gives them to guests - on the house!
Set in a historic, hillside pueblo, which has good roads and a regular bus service down to the coast. There’s a great selection of bars, cafés and restaurants in this pretty Andalusian village and but it's the views over the surrounding countryside and sea that keep me coming back.
The rooms are not massive but are fully equipped with a toaster, kettle, fridge and satellite TV. The pine furniture is a little dated but it would look awkward to have sleek, contemporary designs in this setting.
The reception area is as small and quaint – like the rest of the hotel – with bottle green paintwork and large terracotta tiles.
There’s no proper restaurant to speak of but the options in the village are plentiful. And you can make toast in the rooms and grab the free pastries!
Personal and full of enthusiasm. The owner can’t do enough for you and is well-informed about local attractions and events.
Older couples who want to explore the beautiful village.
You won’t have to break the bank to stay in this authentic Spanish village property. There can be some deals between February and Easter.
