I stayed at the hotel from 28th October - 1st November as a short break with my Daughter. I had seen this hotel on previous visits to La Carihuela and was determined to book as I just loved the look of it. This hotel fits the bill for location, location location! You are a stepping stone from the beach. The room is basic, but as with all other reviews I have read, you cannot fault the cleanliness. You can smell the freshly laundered sheets and the towels are also of a good quality. There is air conditioning (which we did not need at this time of the year), but also heating. The view is wonderful and the fountain when it is lit up at night is beautiful. It is a basic breakfast of tea/coffee and toast with butter and jam and I must say is the best coffee I have tasted. It is the best location for sitting and people watching and a stones throw from all that La Carihuela has to offer. Our favourite restaurant was The Launch overlooking the beach, the service was excellent as was the food. The staff were attentive and could not do enough for you. We preferred The Nook as opposed to Nigel and Cheryl's (next door to each other) for lunch as it felt much cleaner and less flies! However, the food was good in both. The hotel was closing on our last day - not sure if this was for the national holiday or for a longer spell, but they arranged to come back at 5pm for us to collect our luggage. Could not fault anything about our stay.
