Got back on Weds 2nd Jan after a lovely week at the Natursun. A friend had advised that the best way to get from the airport is by train as it is right beside the station. The train takes 10 mins to get to Torremolinos and then it is a straightforward 5 minute walk to the hotel (checked it out on google maps before we got there). Train system a great way to get about as trains were reliable, clean and not too expensive.
On arrival we were given a room at the back of the hotel and asked to move to a front facing room which we did and felt this was well worth the extra per night as the room was much brighter and it was lovely to have a terrace to sit out on. The room itself was large and comfortable enough for a family of 3.
Yes the tv only has Spanish channels but the free wifi made up for this and we were able to use our I-pad to get UK channels (but were glad to escape most of the dross that was on over the festive season anyway!!). We did use the radio function on the tv and found a station that our 15 year old daughter liked and a more tuneful one for ourselves :o).
The room was cleaned every day and all of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
The food was adequate and there is a microwave in the dining area to zap any that was not warm enough. There were small changes to the food provided everyday and generally there was something suited to each of us. The half board option is fine if you are trying to holiday on a limited budget but there are certainly plenty of good alternative places within short walking distance. The dining room itself is a bit spartan but was adequate.
The solitary modern Christmas tree in the reception area was a nice touch and we felt the warm Spanish sunshine and friendly staff made up for any lack of tinsel or baubles. The hotel is still relatively new so I think the staff are still finding their feet and may well improve on providing the festive spirit in years to come.
Toiletries were replenished throughout the stay and we were given a hairdryer to use so didn't need the travel one we had taken with us.
All in all it was a lovely winter break and we would recommend Natursun as a wee gem of a hotel.
