“ANOTHER GREAT VIST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

This is my 2nd stay at this hotel I stayed for 9 nights from 8th July. As last time check in was quick and painless had a Jnr suite on the 6 the floor .room was spotless and kept that way for the full holiday.The food at this hotel is very good can't remember having the Same main course over the full holiday and breakfast is the best I've had in any hotel. They have made some changes they have built a new sun bed area now every one can get a bed.For sure we will be back next year

Room Tip: If you can afford it get a Jnr suite great views great balcony

Green Features: Afraid did not look for any but sure they are in place

We'd read such marginal things about the area (in general) that our expectations were low. What a surprise! Nothing really historic here, just an awesome resort area filled with happy vacationers from a multitude of countries. It has such a happy, festive, we-dare-you-not-to-have-a-good-time feeling about it. The sound of the sea, the wide expanse of sand, the rows upon rows of fun litle bars/restaurants lining each side of the pathway along side the sand only enhanced the resort and beach experience.

There are an impressive number of sand sculptors who assemble the most imaginative kinds of creations. It is appreciated if the observer drops a coin or two into the creator's container.

Back to the hotel: it is light, bright, really tall, and well located. Walk out the door and head in any direction for a different experience: shopping, beach time, food and drink sampling, etc. The rooms were very nice, clean, contemporary and bright. Our room backed up to the huge side of a hill and we could see the water easily from the patio door. Being off the main road, our room was very quiet.

Breakfasts are held in a very large room and the offerings were as good as can be found anywhere. They will even cook eggs to your preference (look for the omelette station).

The staff was always courteous, helpful, and cordial. We would gladly stay here again (and do hope to at some future time). It was amost enjoyable experience and it was a welcome change from the almost-daily touring of the ancient monuments.

The absolutely perfect weather played a large role in our experience, as did the excitement surrounding the World Cup soccer mania so evidenced there. The people really get into this! Costumes, dedicated bars for the separate teams, etc. It felt, at times, a little like a (wonderful) carnival.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back will be more quiet

You cannot fault the hotel for its location right on the beach of Costa del Sol with the shopping centre of the town within minutes of walk behind. It's extremely handy for enjoying the beach as well as shopping and dining at the town centre. Full marks for that!

The hotel is large and of modern design to make the best use of its location to provide seaview rooms to guests. The only problem is that if you do not pay well enough to get a full seaview room, you may end up like we do (as one in a tourist group) with a room with only a very partial seaview from the balcony/ No complaint however as we only stayed for one night in a tour around the region.

No complaint over the guest services either for our brief stay as everything (check in, check out and room services) was running very smoothly and effectively..

We had buffet breakfast and dinner there in the restaurant. For a hotel of such size, it is understandable that the food service was of the mass production type. But to be fair, both the quality and range of food were of a very good standard, particularly in the wide choice of fruits and drinks.

We were happy with the hotel service as a whole and wouldn't mind returning for a longer stay to enjoy all the facilities and amenities close by..

We stayed here for three nights while attending friends' wedding. We booked a suite with a huge balcony overlooking the sea.
The decor is...dated! Indeed, the whole place could do with a decent makeover. But to be fair, this is largely catering to families and beach lovers, not refined sophisticates.
We had a large living room, a large double bed and a reasonably sized bathroom. I was disappointed by the lack of bath robes but again, this is a 4* hotel so modify your expectations.
Breakfast was something of a bun fight but again, despite huge numbers of people pouring into the dining room, everything seemed well stocked and the food was generally pretty good.
What I would say is that the pool is tiny for such a large hotel! Many people commented on it - though the beach is, literally, opposite the hotel.
The other gripe is the lifts - tiny and slow!
Overlal not a bad hotel, probably worthy of its 4* status (just) but personally I was pleased we were only there for a short break.

Stayed for 5 nights. Got the junior suite room 716 on 7th floor, which are all sea front views of the full coastline unlike the ordinary rooms. Had large balcony and little sitting room. Very clean room. Housekeeping staff even work in evenings. Air conditioning worked fine. Bathroom small but very usable. Dining and drinks expensive. No wifi for the whole 6 days on any of our phones or ipads, it sometimes worked slowly after midnight but not during the day. Technician was supposed to call on 3 occasions but never did. Breakfast not normally what irish or English would eat but great selection. Good spot. Clean hotel. Would recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay with us on TripAdvisor.

We greatly appreciate your feedback and while we are delighted you enjoyed the majority of our services , we are sorry that you also had some disappointing comments to make. Please rest assured we have taken all your points regarding the WIFI service on board for immediate consideration as this was clearly not up to our usual Melia Hotels International standards. We have been fortunate to receive many complimentary reviews since the hotel's opening in and I hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again for a second visit.

Yours Sincerely

This is our second visit to this hotel & if anything it is better than before. Friendly attentive staff, spotlessly clean, spacious room (we stayed in 722). You cannot fault the choices of food in the restaurant & never had to wait for a table although the hotel was very busy.

Lovely beach right opposite & plenty of café bars all along the front. Lots of Spanish people & very family orientated with no noisy nightclubs.

Very good bus services to Marbella, Mihas, Benalmadina etc.,

Room Tip: Rooms to the right of reception are nice & cool in the afternoon & sunny in morning

Green Features: You only have towels changed when you ask for them & on each landing in the morning are receptacles for newspapers, plastic bottles etc.,
