The professional photos of the hotel don't lie. This is a very beautiful place. The rooms are as spacious as they look and the gardens and pool are superb.
Firstly I should talk about the clientele here. I would put the average age at around 50-60. Fine for me, but may not suit younger people. The people are 90% German and the staff will address you in German unless you tell them otherwise which does become a bit irritating. On the subject of the staff I hardly saw a smile all week. They are rather cold and unfriendly. I got the feeling that I was a commodity rather than a pleasure. Don't expect pleasantries here!
OK...the food. The cafeteria is like a school mess hall and the food is VERY basic. We were only B&B so didn't eat here every night in the evening. Breakfast is so bland and the food is never very hot. We did eat here on one evening and regretted it....absolutely dire. We spoke with one English gentleman who was here full board and was thoroughly miserable.
The shuttle from the south airport to the hotel would have cost £90 for the two of us, so we hired a car instead....£30 more. Thank God we did!! The hotel is situated at the top of a hill and walking to anywhere nearby is not easy. There are taxis right outside the hotel at all times costing just over 3 Euros to the center of town, which is pretty reasonable and we did this most nights. Ask for Plaza de Europa and you are right in the middle of the shops and restaurants in town. Plenty of shopping and restaurants....be a bit adventurous and walk beyond the main square and you will experience some lovely Spanish restaurants. In the Calle el Lomo there are a couple of beautiful places which I would recommend.
Can't fault the rooms. We were here on a budget and to start carping on about the fact that they need a 'bit of modernizing' as I saw somebody has, is really splitting hairs. They are spacious, clean and almost luxurious. Ours had a beautiful balcony overlooking the superb gardens and we were very satisfied with ours surroundings.
Please feel free to ask any questions. We explored extensively and would like to think that we've got a sensible answer to most queries.
