I don't know which parts were refurbished. Some slightly scuffed parts but the reception area and dining room were bright and airy and spotless. The wifi in the reception area is free with code provided. There are big sofa areas for ipads , kindles, phones, coffees or just snoozing. The little restaurant opening from the lounge has good lunch choices... More

Have just returned from a week here. The weather was a bit off but I can't blame the hotel for that. The public rooms were very good, with large expanses of marble and glass, and the food in the buffet was of decent quality. The fact that we went out for a meal half the time is no reflection on...

This was our first visit to this hotel but not the area. I was disappointed because I had specifically booked this hotel as it was advertised with an indoor pool. However 5 days before we flew we received an email to say there was no longer an indoor pool. What we weren't told was that there was a brand new... More

The hotel as reviews suggest is tired and needs a little tlc, but We could forgive all that for the fact that this is no ordinary hotel. Grand staircases and real architecture without the concrete of modern hotels and service that matches the grand old lady. I could comment on the rooms they are desperate for a refurbishment but spotlessly... More

Stayed at this hotel twice. Love the location and La Carihuela. In fact when we stayed in Fuengirola we have still always visited the Pez Espada. Lovely distinguished hotel. Staff are pleasant and helpful. The cleaners do a fantastic job and towels and bedding changed regularly in fact towels daily! Nice proper Dining Room which can be busy at times.... More
