“Would stay again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Stayed on a work seminar. Very clean hotel. Bedroom spacious only downfall was the bath in the bedroom on open view. Not good if when sharing a room with a work colleague. There is a shower which has a sliding door to cover shower or toilet. Breakfast has enough choice. Ate out on a evening. Infinity pool was lovely but it seemed based for couples, as they cuddled up together on the sun loungers. The hotel is out of the way, than been able to stroll out on a evening to browse around shops. Did have a problem with entering the bedroom. There' s a knack on opening the door. The reception staff were helpful to show how to open the door. The staff are friendly.

Overall pleased that we chose this hotel for our recent stay as we really made use of the facilities - we used the gym most mornings and sun bathed around the pool most afternoon ( rooftop pool is lovely but the terrace pool and grass bathing area a bit more relaxing)!
The location would be a problem if you didn't want to spend money on taxis - we tried to get the last little train down in the evening at 7pm and then either walk or hop on the train in to fuengirola/Los boliches. But your only way of getting back is taxi costing 10-15 euro.

Can't comment on the food in the hotel as we were room only but we did try Al Rolo and were really impressed - food was very tasty and presentation was gorgeous, also dining on the terrace as the sun sets is perfect. We also had a few brunches/ snacks in the sports club snack bar which is very reasonable.

My only criticism of the hotel design would be soundproofing wasn't thought about - the paddle tennis contingent like to talk very loudly in the corridor at 4am and we were woken up on several occasions! This is not your usual resort hotel and the staff behave accordingly, if you keep this in mind you shouldn't be disappointed.

Basic and modern rooms. The staff were helpful and could speak English! The rooftop bar and pool was ideal to chill out and looks amazing in your photos. The location is a bit away from main areas but everything is easy to get to by train at the bottom of the very very very steep and long hill so always get transport to the station. The hotel provides a free little shuttle to the the station. Great holiday for a mini break.

Infinity pool on the roof is nice and also the rooms were pretty comfy and spacious. The hotelmis located on a hill in the middle of nowhere, so prepare to rent a car. The taxi ride from the hotel to the nearest train station is only 1km, but the taxis charge you for that almost 8€ (!!)

Was there with my girlfriend for a 1 night stay. The rooms are nice and modern. The infinity pool was very nice except that there was no service. You have to get your drinks by yourself.
Expected a little more service for such a establishment.
The food there really wasn't a great succes so its better to go to town for dinner or lunch.

We stayed for a week and overall appreciated this hotel. Our room was huge, lots of sun in the evening. The infinity pool area is superbe, but a bit small. Food was ok, but not really worth it imo. The hotel itself is located in the midle of nowhere so it may be a good idea to rent a car if you can. Service was excellent and we were welcomed with a free bottle of cava which was unexpected. I would clearly recommand this hotel for a break to anyone. Thanks for having us.

We've just returned from a five-night holiday booked through Voyage Prive and were very impressed with this hotel.

It's a short taxi drive from Malaga Airport and set in what feels like a gated community well away (thankfully) from Fuengirola proper.

The interior is very modern, with art installations dotted around without it feeling like a museum.

Our initial fear when we arrived was that it would be style over substance, but this definitely isn't the case. The service is excellent, the rooms are spotless and original in their design, and the infinity rooftop pool is a five-star experience.

We crashed out on the (very large and comfy) poolside beds from 11am until 7pm and only got up for a beer, G&T or a delicious smoothie-style drink. As part of our deal we also got a free bottle of Cava. Just great.

We also had a free circuit session in the spa, which is excellent. Massage jets for every possible muscle in various pools, plus swimming lanes, sauna and steam room. Again, really impressive facilities.

If we had to pick fault it would be with the food in the main dining hall, but even then we always found something decent to eat and the waiting staff were very good indeed. I'd go for fruit/cold cuts over the cooked breakfast... it was so-so. The coffee, however, was excellent.

I'd also give Fuengirola beachfront a wide berth. It's certainly seen better days and those high rise blocks they built in the 70s and 80s wouldn't look out of place in a warzone. Not our cup of tea at all. Stay in the reserve... it's a little haven.

We'd definitely consider another sunshine break here.
