I have now stayed in 4 of the Europa Park hotels and must say this is my favorite. We ended up booking a suite on the top floor and it was extremely comfortable, more quiet, convenient and relatively reasonably priced. It was absolutely great for me and my wife but would also be perfect for a family of 4. I... More

Having stayed at the Colleseo before we tried El Andaluz for around the same price. It was quite disappointing to see the rooms were half the size and amenities definitely not as good as The Colleseo. The only upside is that it is directly below the EP express monorail into the park. Features were similarly disappointing in the room, no... More

Our room was awesome!! It was directly in front of the pool and a one minute walk to each restaurant for breakfast and dinner, the hotel was connected to Europa Park for easy access! The room was just like the pictures, the staff was friendly and very helpful even after we accidentally got given someone else's tickets for the park... More

We loved the El Andaluz! The room was very nice, the ratio quality/price excellent. The only question was the quality of breakfast food - quite tasteless, as the rest of the food we ate in Europa Park. Otherwise, we were really happy with the hotel.

Our family of five spent a weekend at this hotel in a family room. While the kids really liked the bunk beds, I felt that the "rustic" theme was just an excuse to not update the furnishings and décor. The room had one bathroom with a separate room for the parents. There were two bunk beds and a sofa sleeper.... More

The hotel theme is spot on. The designers really went out of their way to get the Spanish feel. Rooms are spotless. However, they could use more to accomodate the 4 star rating, like hot water, fridge, airco. minor point: no internet range. I recommend a visit to the free sauna. Ask for a room around the court yard.
