A four-star Spanish paradise resort located in the village of Benahavis, Colina del Paraiso offers mesmerising couples’ getaway and relaxing family holiday vacations. The Puerto Banus is a ten-minute drive from the resort.
Boasting enormous terraces, all apartments are fully air-conditioned. Each has free Wi-Fi access, satellite TV, safety deposit box, kitchen equipped with dishwashers, laundry area with washing machines, and ironing facilities. Furthermore, the penthouse offers a private plunge pool.
Colina del Paraiso features three large outdoor swimming pools, exceptional sporting facilities, and fitness centre. Moreover, a game room, mini-market, parking area, and a seasonal kid’s club are found on-site. Bike rentals are also available.
The Clubhouse Bar and Restaurant offers European and Spanish dishes, while the El Eden Pool Bar serves light meals and beverages.
El Paraiso Golf Club and Flamingos Golf Club are within a ten-minute drive from the resort. Salidillo Benamara Beach can be reached through an eight-minute drive.
Despite being located in Spain where citizens are more comfortable using their own language, Colina del Paraiso's staff speaks good English and communicates effectively with the guests. Some guests even consider the staff from the reception area to be the best staff they have ever met in their lives.
Excellent sports facilities for kids
Aside from having large swimming pools, especially the paddling and the plunge pool, guests admire the different recreational activities offered in the resort. These include the tennis courts, basketball courts, table football, darts, paddle ball, pool and the Paradise Island Kid's club which the children enjoys.
Spacious and well-maintained apartments
Guests commend the clean, spacious, and well-equipped apartments with accessories comparable to a real home. All appliances are working fine and furnishings have good quality. It was even better than what most guests expected, and room sizes are perfect if you're travelling with kids.
Wi-Fi coverage remains “hit or miss”
Most guests speak ill of the poor and almost non-existent Wi-Fi all throughout the establishment. Streaming is quite impossible and most guests complain of losing all their commitments due to lack of communication via Internet.
Inaccessible resort location
Although bringing or renting a car has been clearly advised, most guests complain of the remote and far location of the resort from the city and other important establishments. A car is a must in order to visit nearby restaurants, ATM's, supermarkets and tourists destinations.
Accident-prone hot tub area
The stairs at the rooftop where the hot tub is located is very slippery. This is mainly due to the structure of the stairs that is why most guests are advised to be more careful, especially with kids, and avoid going down with wet feet or clothes to prevent any accidents.
