What a lovely hotel, very hard to fault. The setting was beautiful, the whole hotel immaculately clean, room well designed and comfortable and the grounds superbly cared for. We even went for a swim in the pool after a long hot walk, although the water was a bit cool being early May. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I loved staying there; it was a pleasure to sit on our balcony looking over town to the sea. The breakfasts were excellent. The only downside was some very odd choices of food in the evening. The oddest was some very strange meat served only with potato CRISPS (yes, crisps) and gravy. Maybe it’s a Spanish delicacy, if so this should have been explained to us. One group of six took such a dim view of the first evening meal that they opted out and ate in some of the many local restaurants. Generally there was a lack of vegetables or salad which is puzzling knowing how much Spain produces. The a la carte menu was completely different, but we didn’t sample it. I hope the management can reconsider their menu provision for our type of group. I feel this hotel deserves more than *** and would return anytime providing we could avoid the group evening meals menu or we could stay on a B&B basis.
