Benitez endured a difficult previous spell in Italy with Inter Milan.
"The truth is that this is a very nice place: with golf, training camps... People who love you, players who work with the will to win... and things are going well, therefore, we have to be happy," he told ESPN.
"There are so many things here that make me think that the results are very good despite the short time we have been here. Therefore, I am positive about the future and it can be even better because we will have more leeway.
"That Inter had a higher level, but with an older team. This is a squad with more enthusiasm, more eagerness, hungry and with less age - so it is always easier to influence the players - to make them understand things."
