Visited this hotel for the 2nd time....last time was 6 years ago. Hotel has gone downhill. Staff very very nice however hotel looking shabby and stains on carpets. The most disappointing thing was the quality of food. Golf clubhouse kitchen closed at 4pm! Ordered pasta (bolognaise & carbonara) from room service which is amongst the worst I've tasted...very disappointing.

I recently stayed here with my Company Conference from 9th to 12th October. The hotels grounds, communal areas and rooms are impressive. However there were two main issues we found with the hotel which were Flies - we had the horrific experience of a tapas lunch being served on terrace which the food had been left on the table prior...

We stayed for two nights in Sept. A paid for weekend as a thank you from the company I work for. The room was large and clean and the bathroom was lovely.

The hotel is lovely. Spacious rooms, lovely setting and great facilities - particularly if you are a golfer. The location is quite remote so we found that a car was necessary. The breakfast and dinner menus were fine; but a little samey if you are considering staying more than a few days. The hotel website boasts that "High Speed Internet... More

Our first hotel in a 10 day self drive tour of Southern Spain. Pity we didn't have longer than 2 nights, shame we couldn't take full advantage of this fantastic facility.

I haven't been here for some years and indeed normally stay at another 5 star hotel nearby but this was nearly half the price. We booked a suite which was fantastic value and an amazing set of rooms with the largest personal terrace I have ever seen. Proper English TV channels was a bonus. Free wifi.

My daughter got married at this hotel this last weekend. The wedding was magnificent, but only for one reason and one reason alone. The hotel organiser of events is Patricia Morales whose reliability, kindness and efficiency created for my daughter her dream wedding. But sadly that is where the compliments end.
