We stayed there two nights, my only requirement when I booked this hotel was to have a quiet room.

This is simply the nicest hotel on the coast Quiet and elegant without feeling you are in Marbella The food is great but the place is slightly out the way so a car is simply a must if you like golf or tennis the facilities are perfect

It stands out on top of a Hill, about a mile from the bling of the Costa through manicured lawns and willowy trees, glorious, we thought, a haven, we mused, an oasis, we whispered, But there in the Foyer, the first thing we saw was a youth in a string vest and a Mohican hair cut.

We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good and the breakfast buffet was also good. Our group left early the next morning and only... More

My wife and I, together wit hour 9 year old daughter stayed at this hotel in August for a week. To say it was wonderful is an understatement. This hotel is faultless! The room was impeccable, the breakfasts amazing, the staff so helpful - we could not have had better.
