great hotel, excellent service, quite big and well equipped rooms, food is really good respecting a 5 star ranking. Flamingos and Alferini golf course are beautiful! Tremores is an executive course with lots par 3 holes, you need to be aware of it. Definitely recommend a visit.

VP is the most excellent value in Costa del Sol. Such a wonderful building and the rooms are current and superbly finished. Most importantly it's the staff who make you want to come back, the place has a great feel. Perfectly positioned along the coast, you'll love it.

Villa Padierna...it seems like you have forgotten how to be a 5* hotel. If you could iron out the irritations you could go from being a nice hotel to being an exemplary one which makes guests want to come back time and again.

We enjoyed a "Junior Suite" which was spacious, beautiful in all respects, well furnished, king size bed, beautiful and spacious bathroom, which included two wash basins, shower and bath. This entire hotel is just incredible. The reception area is something you might find in a palace. The staff were great, incredibly helpful and accommodating (pun intended). Swimming Pool was huge...

I have been staying in some of the best hotels in the world, but the service in this hotel was what one would expect in a 1 star hotel in the French pampa.

I stayed here for a friend's wedding. As a bridesmaid, I was treated to a stay in an absolutely mindblowing suite with private pool for the night before the wedding.

You cant help but enjoy this hotel...even if a pink Tuscan Villa is not the reason you came to the Costa del Sol. I think I had a suite, and it was outstanding in every way - from the view over the golf course and out across the Med. to the luxurious spaciousness of room and bathroom. Modern funky design...

We have arrived to the hotel at midnight and were very tired, but seems like staff don't know their duties, as they decided that would be nice to make us wait about 1.30 hours to find room.
