Sahara Sunset Club in Benalmadena is fast becoming a number one choice for many families on holiday in the Costa del Sol.
Built around a large landscaped swimming pool; leisure facilities on-site include an indoor pool and a whirlpool, while all of the delightfully furnished accommodation in this villa resort comes with either a private terrace or balcony.

Cheap, comfortable and sociable, The Picasso's Corner Backpackers Hostel in Malaga ticks all three boxes.
Budget dinners are served nightly, and those coming to Costa del Sol to enjoy the many art museums – including the art of the eponymous painter himself, check this place out as it's close to many art galleries including the famous Picasso Museum.
Playa de Benalnatura is a great place to visit off-season, and if you're looking for somewhere that offers a place to enjoy some peace and quiet and work on your tan in privacy, despite sunbeds not being available to hire.
It isn't the best for swimming due rocky seabed, plus keep in mind that it's a black sand beach – as well as a popular spot for naturists.
Due to its location on the Balcon de Europa's rock face, the hotel's main entrance is on the sixth floor, but it does allow direct access from the rooms to the beach.
