Beach club of Hotel Villapadierna's with a high standing restaurant where is it possible to have dinner. The service is very good. The menu selected, not just in fish but also with meat. The appetizers are really good and the selection of wines offered also remarkable.

So nice to be in a 5 star that actually delivers. Beautiful pool and spa and you can wander between them without formality. Excellent pool side attendant. Polite and efficient. Imitation Tuscan but everything quality. Not cheap but worth every euro. Go there!

I should start by saying that the food and service at La Veranda is 5*. The food was inventive with good fresh ingredients and not expensive for such fare. The staff were wonderful, especially Melissa, the Maitre'd, who was excellent and can't be faulted. Now the reason for the 1* rating. We wanted somewhere special for our 25th. wedding anniversary...

Too much that could be said - like everywhere, it has it's small issues, but overall it is an amazing retreat where you can truly relax and disconnect. The food was phenomenal across the restaurants we tried (Loggia, Veranda and beach bar). The spa is incredible, the communal areas beautiful and the bar overlooking the golf course the perfect spot... More

I recently Visited With my family for a wedding. The hotel itself is beautiful. It is surrounded by stunning landscapes and the view from our room was amazing. I've heard a lot about the hotel Obama stayed there, Lionel Ritchie etc.. I was however extremely disappointed by the service we received. We all had lunch by the pool on the... More

The advantage of staying at a same hotel more than once, is the possibility to note any change. This is one of those few hotels that doesn’t change, because improvement is hardly possible. All staff consistently makes you feel so welcome, that you regret to have to leave when your stay is over. The only minus point (still) is that... More

When I complained, the bar lady said "sorry I was taking my lunch amdni wasn't the one who took your order"!!!.. Paying this amount of money I expected the service is be... More

Rooms were excellent and the three golf courses looked amazing. Although I didn't play , we were here for a wedding . An Indian wedding in Spain, it was... More

Having travelled around the world it is rare to find a true 5* hotel with 1st class service. Villa Padierna is just this. The architecture of the hotel itself is stunning, making you feel like you could be anywhere in the world. The attention detail makes for a beautiful setting – the swimming pool is definitely the most beautiful and... More

As facilities goes this is rather near the top, you can't fault it. I have been using their facilities on a regular basis but recently a few changes happened for the worse and it is clear clients are not their priority. The staff as a whole are superb and try their best but when poor managerial decision are introduced and... More
