Stayed here the last weekend in September 2020, we had a great time so we went to book a third night only to learn that the hotel was closing it's doors the following day. Hopefully only temporarily, as we would definitely be back. The hotel itself was very quiet due to covid, as was Benalmadena in general. But we really enjoyed our stay, it was very clean, great outdoor pool area, affordable drinks at the bar, fantastic comfortable beds, great location, friendly staff. Couldn't really ask for more.
Myself and my family have just returned from staying at Best Siroco Hotel. We can’t praise it enough from the staff, to the food, to the rooms everything was fantastic. Great location within short walking distance to the marina, beach and shops. Would highly recommend!
This is not 5 star however if you get a sea facing room you have beautiful views. The gardens and pool are lovely. I would use this as a base as you are near Arroyo de la miel, the Paseo Maritimo and the Port of Benalmadena. I found the food ordinary but there are so many good restaurants nearby it's not a problem. Staff are friendly but little English spoken. So to sum up it is ideal as a comfortable base to enjoy the area but don't expect luxury food. My parents enjoyed it thoroughly and will return.
