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. The hotel is beautiful, the setting, everything, but the staff are all imbeciles. Impolite staff, delivering the wrong (cold) food and a front desk clerk asking me... More

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. It was incredible and I definitely felt like one of the many celebrities staying there (one of our group sighted Ne-Yo during our trip and the villa next door was... More

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. Aparently room wasn't even ready? Still they were trying to please our waiting proposing a cup of coffee at half past 12 am.... More

i booked this as a weekend spa treat for myself and my girlfriend. Therefore I will address the spa issues firstly. Too many facilities were out of action. Neither of the two indoor plunge pools were in service. One of the steam rooms was out of service. Of the remaining steam / sauna rooms, none of them appeared to have... More
