Been home a week now from our second stay this year, at the Corona Del Mar. I "Ditto" everything I said in my previous review, dated 8th July. Arrived at the Corona Del Mar 26 September until 03 October. Been staying here now for many years. The warm welcome, and hospitality from reception, always a lovely start to a holiday. Many of the staff have been here years. We have always found the staff in all area's of the hotel to be helpful & friendly.
Booked a sea-view room as usual, but have stayed in rooms at different sides of the hotel. All the rooms are spacious, and have a flat screen TV with enough English channels to watch. Theirs a mini fridge also, where drinks can be replenished. Fresh towels are provided every day, and bed linen changed every three days, but more often if needed, just ask. Hair dryer also in the bathroom, and a supply of toiletries, soap, shampoo, gel, shower cap, and needle /thread. The hotel is spotless clean throughout, always!
The hotel has two pools & a kiddies pool. The out side pool in it's pleasant surroundings with water feature & slide also has a Jacuzzi, and separate kiddies pool. Plenty of sun beds always available. You'll find a indoor pool too, and a gym. High season you will find a kiosk open that serves drinks by the pool.
We have always found the food in the hotel very good & varied. Lamb, Beef, Pork, veal, Chicken,Ribs,and Fish,and a good assortment of vegetables & potatoes. You'll find pasta,spring rolls and various Paella/Rice dishes on the lunch menu each day. The salad bar has got to be the biggest i have seen. The beautiful display of all the different choices & combinations is mouth watering. Fresh bread/rolls available at all times. A good choice of desserts include, Gateau,cakes,jelly,rice pudding, caramel, melon, ice cream, yogurts, and a good choice of seasonal fresh fruit. Full English breakfast is offered as well and continental, crepes, cheese,ham, toast,orange juice,and tea/coffee.You'll find the dinning room quite large, cool/bright. You can also sit outside the restaurant on the covered sun terrace.
The hotel has entertainment on every night, and i must say, the day time entertainment for kiddies during main season is excellent. This is provided in and around pool area, as well as indoors through out the day.The hotel bar area is quite large inside, and theirs a beautiful spacious sitting area outside, were the large glass doors are opened up in the warmer months, to extend into the indoors.
The location of the hotel is excellent, and is on the flat. Ideal for anyone with walking disabilities. The beautiful Poniente beach is 3/5 min away. A relaxing 5/10 min stroll along the prom towards the Marina, will take you into the typical, authentic old town. If you want to visit the new town, you'll be their in approx 20/30 min. The best of both worlds. My husband not in the best of health these days, and staying at this hotel is always a tonic for him, and still suits our needs all round, after many years. If your looking to book a quality hotel, in a beautiful location, I highly recommend, the Corona Del Mar.
To All The Staff. Gracias por su hospitalida!
We look forward to our visits in 2014.
