I cannot think of a poor thing to say about this hotel, it looks and is "superb". From check in to check out nothing is too much trouble, the bar staff, dining room staff, cleaners and receptionists all go about their business efficiently and with a smile. The rooms are lovely and the food has such a vast choice no... More

We returned for our second visit this time with two grandchildren in one of the 1 bed appartments, good size bedroom ,bathroom and kitchen but the lounge although quite large when the sofa is made into bed makes it a little restricted. However the hotel is just as good as last year even though there has been a little touch... More

Recently stayed at this hotel (all inclusive option) and I was really impressed. Although our room was small for three of us (hubby, toddler and me) it was adequate, though air conditioning wasn't fantastic. The hotel and its grounds are spectacular - pool fantastic and was always busy. The lifeguards were very good at dealing with those holidaymakers whom put... More

We returned from a family holiday just a few days ago. The hotel staff were lovely and friendly, the entertainment team were great. The food was NOT amazing, same food every night, with a change of fish or meat, pizza, pasta, paella every single night..... No themed food nights, poor selection for children. Not 4star quality food at all, a... More

I genuinely liked everything about our stay at this hotel. The food was amazing and every day you had a different main course. The guys en girls from the animation team 'starfriends' were very very nice and entertaining. All day long except for the siesta-time there were things you could do with them: from waterpolo to darts to their daily... More

Stuffy rooms, terrible all inclusive food for kids (nuggets, fries and sausages), pool snacks were poor and dining room was more like a factory. No matter you buy All Inclusive, You still have to pay extra for parking, safety box, WiFi etc. Laundry service was slow and expensive. Staff could have been more friendly especially while checking in and while... More

We've just returned from a super holiday at the Malaga Playa. We stayed in a spacious one bedroom apartment, bonus that the living area and kitchen were separate. Plenty space for storing luggage out of the way. Our room was in the block closest to the service entrance - noisy mornings, if we were return I'd insist on a room... More
