We stayed here for our anniversary for one night, it was very hard to find the hotel even with the sat nav. We had to ask directions as there are no signposts until you are almost at the hotel. It is a very big hotel and directly on the beach through a gate at the back. We were all inclusive... More

Really enjoyed our stay. We were a group of 12 ranging from 6 to 66. Brits were the minority at this time of year but the staff all spoke very good English and Manuel the activities coordinator was very good with the kids and adults alike. Food was very nice and varied. Hotel was very clean and drinks were of... More

To start with, we enjoyed this holiday and would go again at the price that we paid, which was a good value last minute offer - we probably wouldn't go at regular costs. If possible, I would have given a 3 1/2 rating. We went as family with a 3 1/2 year old boy and a baby of 4 month.... More

We visited this hotel 31 Oct for a week. We had a side room overlooking the waste ground, but still with a sea view - away from the road so very quiet. We had a lovely week, the room exceeded our expectations, beds were lovely and comfy and bedding changed regularly. Nice to see comfortable armchairs in the room as... More

We had a fab long week-end. All inclusive was worth it. Very friendly staff and the entertainment staff worked so hard and were brilliant. Booked again today for next year. We never left the Hotel as we were only there from Friday to Monday but everything was perfect

I can recommend this hotel whole heartedly as I dound it most comfortable and friendly. Staff are superb and always helpful. Food (breakfast and evening meals) are excellent, varied and fresh. Decor is modern and gardens are beautiful. It is sadly not in a nice area and a bit remote from Malaga. However, if you are looking for a relaxing... More

We arrived to a lovely looking hotel in the glorious sunshine. However, when we went to check in the two bed apartment that we had specifically requested and paid for was unavailable due to being over booked.
