They do such a great job with anything you need to fixing something to a simple question you may have. Housekeeping was amazing... More

We were all inclusive guests at this hotel and it certainly wasn't worth it. When asking the reception staff about the facilities they weren't aware of what went on in the hotel. The food was repeated every day, with very few vegetarian options and not labelled accurately, it was hard to find a table when we went to eat since... More

We had an enjoable stay at this hotel. Check in was friendly and efficient and done in 10 minutes. The room we were allocated was clean and of an ample size for the three of us with a large bathroom. The food in the hotel was your typical spanish buffet with a variety of freshly cooked meats and fish as... More

The food was delicious - the best hotel for food (sushi, sea food, caviar.... everything) We was really satisfied with the hotel, only the one thing which I have to criticize - the rooms (problem with air condition, water - only hot or cold when we shower, dryer was not working). It is very nice hotel but it needs to... More

We stayed here for a family trip for a long weekend and had three rooms on 5th floor. We stayed on a BB basis although the majority of guests appeared to be all inclusive. Check in was lovely and complimentary juices were provided which was a lovely touch after the transfer from the airport. Room was spacious and spotless with... More

Great hotel, very clean, staff lovely, huge clean swimming pool and the food was fabulous. Really good all round family hotel. I've only given 4 stars for 2 reasons. Firstly the restaurant was extremely busy and warm and only offers minimal outside dining. There was a large area outside but only half was used for outside dining. Secondly, we looked... More

Top class hotel, food could not be faulted, well worth a visit,we will be going again later this year. Ideally situated on the beach but just a short bus journey and you can visit all the other local towns, Nerja, torre del mar etc Very clean, all staff very friendly and will do anything to help

On our last day of a 10 day holiday at iberostar Malaga playa and can't fault it. We are staying in a 2 bed apartment which is lovely, plenty of room for a family of 4, very comfortable beds and a decent sized terrace. Not the best view from the room but the size of the room is more important... More

This is a great hotel in a super location. Extremely friendly staff and kind people. It is very quiet and feels safe in the resort itself with a super promenade with lots of friendly bars and very cheap Tapas and drinks. Before we had our son, my husband and I did not particularly take note of entertainment in hotels however... More
