Hotel was excellent. Everything was kept very clean. Great pool and pool area plenty of sunbeds and parasols. Staff were all very nice everyone spoke to you in the passing from toilet cleaners to management. Hotel is situated right on promenade which is lovely for a walk After dinner.

We have just returned from 10 nights from the malaga playa staying half board. We stayed with iberostar (Majorca) last year and have been impressed by their previous standards. This did not disappoint. The rooms are well air conditioned and have good amenities but are normal fair. The pool is excellent and has a gradient for children and not over... More

Lets start with the positives. The pool area is something else - unrivalled in its class. Loads of sunbeds and staff actively stopping people reserving sunbeds which is brilliant. Its also not a sea water pool so it doesn't sting your eyes too much when you get dunked. Entertainment team are very good and friendly too. The food was nice... More

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

Our entire team put a lot of effort to maintain the highest standards of service, to let our guests... More
