Our fantastic experience of this hotel began before we even left the UK. My now husband emailed the hotel to say that we would be spending our honeymoon with them and Santa Maria was in touch to arrange a number of lovely perks for us to make our stay even more special. We had a room upgrade to room 229... More

I would like to say that we really enjoy the time at the hotel. Although they didn't speak Spanish, they really made an effort to communicate with us. The food was very good, also the service. We went to a day-trip and they had prepared the breakfast at 4 am just for us with also the lunch! When we came... More

I was very disappointed but consoled myself with the fact we wouldn't be in there much. There were cold plates... More

Second time @ this hotel. Service was also identical as last year. The food was even better. We recognised a lot of people from last year so this is a mostly a good sign. We can really recommend this hotel for a quiet vacation.

The hotel staff was very helpful, the facilities and the animation team were excellent. The rooms were very clean but the first one we stayed at was a bit old although it looked renovated. The food at the restaurant was exceptional as well as the restaurant staff! The sea in front of the hotel was not clear though...

Arriving late evening we had a lovely warm welcome, check in formalities were put to one side whilst we were whisked into dinner by Santa Maria. The next day having seen the mountains behind us and the beach in front we knew we were going to have a fantastic holiday. The terrace steps majestically down to patios and lawns with... More

We arrived very late to find complimentary fresh sandwiches, fruit and a bottle of wine in our room. Nothing was too much trouble for any member of staff who were helpful at all times. We enjoyed the food which was of high quality and plenty of it. (Also plenty of choice) I would especially recommend dining in the a la... More
