I stayed for 2 nights, 14th and 15th October 2012. The hotel is one of the best I have stayed in for a short break. Rooms were spacious and clean. Shower and bath, Tea and coffee making facilities a safe and a fridge which was stocked with 2 beers, 2 lemonades and 2 bottles of water. A balcony that overlooked the sea and beautiful gardens of the hotel. Separate open air and covered swimming pools were available with plenty of sunbeds. Towels are even supplied free of charge for the beach. The food was excellent and the reception staff were brilliant. Within easy reach of numerous sandy beaches, a strip with plenty of restaurants and drinking establishments. If you go, try to pay a visit to the old town which is a short walk north of the hotel. This hotel certainly is tops in the guest stakes and caters for all parties. There are plenty of places to go and see in the vicinity of the hotel. If you are prepared to walk along the beach for a few hundred yards there are wonderful Irish Bars, namely The Claddagh and Callaghan's. These have the cheapest pints in the town and with plenty of entertainment in the evenings. Although in the middle of October, the weather was glorious and in the high 20's everyday. I was on a trip with work colleagues but I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a family holiday. I will certainly consider this hotel if I take a future family holiday in the Costa Del Sol. When I go here again it will definitely be for longer than a weekend.
