helpful staff, good breakfast, big choice of cheese, good atmosphere, small but nice spa, free wifi, parking. Located just near the beach, good atmosphere. Building from outside, restaurants and reception is very spacious and nice but rooms are dark with old furniture, old curtains which really need to be upgraded. Stay some nights in Barselo nearby which was much higher... More

Overall this is a lovely comfortable hotel with a perfect pool, landscaped gardens and poolside bar. There is direct access by boardwalk to the most wonderful long sandy beach, perfect for walking or jogging off the over eating we indulged in while staying here.

We stayed here during the second week in September ’14. Why? The Costa de la Luz has probably the best beaches in Spain - add the Atlantic Ocean into the mix and you have the ideal location to spend a relaxing sun, sea and sand vacation. Why this hotel? We have stayed at other hotels in the Melia group and... More

Clearly it depends what you like and I don't know what the opposite to cosy is but the Melia Sancti Petri is huge and cavernous and designed around delivering tourism to the masses of the middle classes. It is a characterless, soulless hotel, replete with dozens of restrictions about what the guest can and cannot do, what they can and... More

Gorgeous hotel with an incredible pool. Breakfast is one of the best buffets I've seen. Had a mushroom risotto in the tapas bar last night which was outstanding. Clientele are moneyed 'jumper over the shoulder' magnates and their well preserved wives with a sprinkling of younger couples and incredibly well behaved kids. The area is very golf-oriented so if that's... More

Stayed at this hotel 9-15 Sept. Excellent experience overall - great breakfast, option of three separate restaurants in the evening, superb barbecue and very helpful, friendly staff. My husband celebrated a birthday during our time there and a bottle of champagne was sent to our room courtesy of the GM. Nice attention to detail. Will definitely return.
