Really good hotel in Carihuela. Stayed 5 nights . Very good staff on reception and room service. Great food, - dinner matches the 4 star label.
Good clean room has fridge /mini bar, modern digital TV, nice sea view and a FREE digital safe - it is brilliant. Pool deck one floor from street level has over 30 free luxury cushioned loungers , parasols, and a nice bar area , PLUS a great free hot tub and jacuzzi. Fantastic. Most guests wandered off to beach for the spanish sea 'an sunshine sizzle, so the hotel deck not used that much, and the location to sea front and promenade is good, one busy road to cross, assisted by a countdown traffic controlled crossing almost in front of hotel. Staff eager to help guests watch big screen euro football in bar area and they were quite sporting about England.
Negatives include bland breakfasts but nice eggs, the busy breakfast corner, everyone converges on toast, coffee , juice all positioned in same corner of restaurant so expect to be jostled. The road the hotel is on is one/two streets back from all the action, a good thing for some. The road its on is run down a bit . Road noise an issue for the pool deck but can be drowned out by your I pod and the pool bar /restarant bar only did bottled beer, not draft. The Spanish waiters say "draft beer is finished" , - so re- start it then!. Can charge bar and restaurant wine etc bills to room so i did it to next door's (joking)
But these are minor glitches, the positives shade the lot. I'm a big fan as the hotel works hard to please, its on a great strip of costa del sol between the 2 big guns of torremolinos and benalmadena. So its location at la cariheula serves the well used promenade, spanish restaurants , great tapas, and good english bars very very well. When the sun shines as it does there but not here, there's no better place at the price if you stay at a hotel like this.
