Following a recommendation from our local Thomson adviser we stayed at the Hotel Riviera, Benalmadena from 26 February until 5 March 2017. We were not disappointed and enjoyed a lovely week in this Sensimar Hotel. Following a good flight and a very swift transfer from Malaga airport we had to wait a little while for our room to be ready....

My father (90) stayed here for 2 weeks in March 2017 and I managed to join him for 4 days during his holiday. Seems to be a 100% Thompson’s hotel so as far as I am concerned it should be good as Thompson 4 star is a good standard. There has been a fair bit of refurbishment going on and...

The Riviera is an excellent hotel for the single traveller. I found it to be friendly and you are treated with respect. I e-mailed the hotel before I went for a room on a high floor and this is what I was given. Thank you what a view! As I burn very easily the sunny side did not interest me...

Had a week here with partner in early February. Weather really good with temperatures around 18°c plus. Hotel is situated right next to the sea. Back gate opens onto promenade. Apart from the room we were given on 2nd floor, everything was great. Our room looked out over a flat roof over the entertainment lounge giving just a glimpse sideways...

Picked this hotel based on reviews and location, as we wanted a quick getaway with a week in the sun to celebrate the wife's birthday and our anniversary. Turned out to be a great choice. Room was very good, clean and comfortable, although the wife thought the bed was a little too firm. Tea/coffee making facility in the room, TV...

A lovely hotel with direct access to the promenade and the beach. Rooms sound-proofed and with excellent double glazing. Beautiful pool and garden area. Everywhere was immaculate and the food was great with loads of fresh fruits and salads as well as grills cooked to order, interesting casseroles, hors d'oeuvres and naughty pastries. Everything one could think of for breakfast....

Stayed here 4 years ago and it just gets better. The rooms are large with huge walk-in showers, free safe, fridge and tea and coffee. The beds are large and the wardrobes which have inside lighting and quite adequate. The hotel staff are very helpful, especially on reception. Ask for a room on a high floor and facing the marina...

Very clean and peaceful hotel with friendly staff and food amazing. I'm struggling to see how for the price we paid with Thomsons how anyone made any money! A special mention to the entertainment staff. They were superb and their production of Grease was fab as was the visiting Abba duo. We look forward to our next visit.

The location of this Hotel is fantastic. There are so many places you can walk to in the local vicinity. The Marina is only about 10 minutes walk from the promenade at the back of the hotel and the walk to Torremolinos is about 45- 50 minutes. We took the lift in Torremolinos up to the town which is easier...
