The adjacent towns of Torremolinos and Benalmádena boast numerous hotels at all price levels and for all requirements. They cater equally well for those who want a romantic week with their partner, for the stag & hen party revellers and for the family market.
Some of Spain’s most famous hotels which have been firm favourites with Brits, north Europeans and Spaniards for many years are to be found here. Yes, Spaniards! In the summer months from the beginning of July to the middle of September, the two towns take on a very different complexion. In winter many of the hotels are fully-booked with senior citizens from the north of Europe whilst in summer the same hotels are packed with Spanish families enjoying their annual holidays. Obviously the rates reflect these two markets!
Torremolinos and Benalmádena have more than 100 budget hotels with prices starting from as little as 15 euros per night out of season.
