THE TRAVELLER wrote a review Jan 3
Malaga, Spain10447 contributions3230 helpful votes
Great location with extensive, well maintained grounds going down to sea. The gardens really are something special even in the Winter months. Public areas are spacious and modern. Bedrooms however did feel a little dated, particularly for a 5 star hotel. There are more luxurious properties at a similar price point in Marbella- my next port of call. Food offering was good even though all outlets were not open in Winter months. The pools are stunning. Good levels of service but I expect 5 star hotels to go the extra mile and I didn't get that feeling here. Overall I would rate as very good but I did feel they were charging top drawer for the experience. The Kapinski name is synonymous with luxury , usually very elegant yet understated. I did not get that feeling here.

The location seaside at a gravel beach and with outside pools (one heated) is great. But beware of the rooms to the side of the hotel as you may experience noise from the very close highway while sitting on your balcony. The friendliness of the personnel and the excellent restaurant and ample breakfast buffet deserve 5 stars. But the rooms are very worn down, from stains in the carpet to bathrooms needing a makeover. Only 3 stars for this and an appeal to the management to undertake the long necessary renovation.

Very nice hotel with great amenities. The welcome and the care of customers are warm. I was shocked that a hotel of this standard did not offer air conditioning in winter. As a result, I must have slept with the window open. Big flaw.
