In early 2014 we spent a week in this hotel. It is well located but not sea front. The rooms are fine but a little dated. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The buffet restaurant gave a good variety of choice and a fairly good quality of food. Almunecar town is attractive and about 20 minutes walk from the... More

Although I have read many glowing reviews of this hotel, they were mostly from families with children. It's ideal for them with many different amusements laid on throughout the day. However, for an older couple looking for a more peaceful environment, this is not suitable. We stayed during the Spanish children's summer holidays - which was a mistake. Three or... More

I have written already several extended reviews about this hotel in the past years, so I will limit myself to the specific remarks of this trip. We never went so late in the season. Actually the hotel closed on our last day there (Nov 2) and reopens Dec 20, 2014 for their next season. We were somewhat wondering if we... More

We booked this hotel on a great package deal with Fleetway travel. The hotel was right on the front, ideally placed for beach, restaurants and shops. Plenty of places close by for free tapas with your drinks for about 2 euros. There is a very large supermarket next door if you want to travel light. The range and choice of... More

We only stayed for one night for which I am grateful. The hotel has seen better days. This may be because it is right at the end of the season, but it was really disappointing. The breakfast was OK - we went for the freshly prepared omelette and the lady who made them was really friendly. However, it was like... More

My wife & I stayed here as an impromptu visit on a Sunday night in mid-October. We wanted to stay down in the area having over-run a visit to Nerja and Salobrena. We used a very good local holiday booking agent (at home in the UK) and, at very short notice, the Playa Spa seemed a safe bet. It's very... More

This hotel needs a major renovation and moral boost ! The best part of the rooms are the marble large bathrooms with old splendor. Room decor,paint,flower care needs new energy…that whats laking in this hotel. I am convinced that some employees at the reception desk help themselves to cash upgrades. Breakfasts are very good,avoid dinners. Over all one can even... More
