We stayed at this hotel from 23rd until 29th December and had a good time, Vic Gran is in a lovely quiet location right on the beach and we were lucky enough to be able to lay on sunbeds the weather was that nice. Most days we caught a bus into nearby towns and had lovely days out, Fuengirola, Torremolinos, Marbella and a must to visit is the village of Mijas a very beautiful village with nice shops, quaint donkeys trotting around and lovely bars and restaurants. Our hotel room was nice, quite big, big bathroom, always hot water and right at the front end of the hotel, room number 125 I think, lovely for the winter but I would think it would be a bit smelly in the summer on this side of the hotel as there is a storm drain that collects stagnant water, it was fine when we were there though as it was cold at night. The food was similar every day and always, always cold I suggest you definitely use the microwave then the food is edible, the food itself was quite good it was just with it always being cold it put me off a bit, breakfast was the same everyday but a good English breakfast, lovely bacon even though this was freshly cooked it was always cold too! We had a lovely meal on Christmas night, lots of prawns, langustines, salad and meat choices and all very tasty, I mainly stuck to salads so I knew what I was getting and expected it to be cold, but the chips were always hot if you want chips all the time, and the deserts were lovely, wine was a bit sparse, we were AIC and had to keep asking after the first glass if we could have another one, but the bar was excellent, good quality drinks, nice service and an outside area for smokers. I would stay here again as I liked the area, but would probably try Marbella next time as it has a beautiful front prom to walk along for hours and is not quite so expensive as it used to be.
