Expert review of Plazoleta Hotel Benalmadena

A small hotel with masses of charm in an historic district near 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!

Location: 

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. 

Bedrooms: 

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.

Public areas: 

The reception area is as small and quaint – like the rest of the hotel – with bottle green paintwork and large terracotta tiles.

Eating and drinking: 

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!

Service: 

Personal and full of enthusiasm. The owner can’t do enough for you and is well-informed about local attractions and events.
