Sitting outside on the terrace overlooking the manicured landscape made this feel very special from the start. We enjoyed taking our time savouring the Mediterranean cuisine which lived up to the hotel's 5* rating. Euros 375 for 7 people including wine.

We celebrated a special occasion at the Amapola based on the La Manga Club resort, which happened to be Sunday so we could take advantage of their all you can eat Sunday lunch. Don't be fooled, however, this is not some sort of mass produced food... This is high quality fare indeed. My meal consisted of a salad starter, with... More

The standard of cooking was poor with the sea urchin starter tasting only of scrambled eggs. The consomme was not a consomme (ie. a clear soup) but a watery and cloudy tomato soup. The John Dory fish main dish was overcooked and did not come across as particularly fresh and the pig cheeks were doused in a sickly sweet sauce.... More

We eat here on a Saturday night, having the degustacion menu. I could not fault the various courses and menu, the chef deserves praise for this wonderful gastronomic feast. However having looked at the dress code on the hotel website, stating trousers must be worn, seeing people in sports shorts is a little disappointing. The service was good until the... More

The 'brief' was for a truly memorable birthday celebration. A table for 11 on Sunday evening May 3rd. We'd arranged for a bouquet and aperitifs on the veranda. Then inside for the 5 course 'taster menu' with the finale of strawberry and chocolate birthday cake. Gloria, restaurant manager that evening, and her team of waiters and chefs really did excel....

The starters of pumpkin soup served in a coconut shell were not seasoned and served with unnecessary 'foam'. forget the foam and focus on the flavour, my wife struggled and my son flatly refused to eat it. My scallops, again with foam were watery and flavourless, I thought they must have been frozen as the centre was so watery, the... More

Excellent "Amuse Bouche" of Gazpacho. Rest of meal poor. Paella was rice with seafood in a sauce. No taste of any saffron strands. By far the worst Paella we have ever had. Our friend had duck which had not been properly seared and was very fatty. Also served very rare rather than pink. She was not asked how she'd like... More
