We spent 2 weeks at La Amada mid September 2011 and have returned home well rested and tanned. The hotel is clean, comfortable and well cared for. We stayed in a swim up room with terrace and garden - lovely. The bed was extremely hard as were the sunbeds & I feel a bit princessy even saying that, but its the truth. The beach is small but lovely and the sea is accessible on soft sand. Only 2 restaurants to choose from each evening both offer good food, and we were offered the services of their executive chef to cook anything we wanted if we were bored with the menu. Our favourite restaurant was La Isla grill, the food is great, wonderful views and good atmosphere; and staff are exceptional. Try the lobster surf and turf - its awesome. The cocktail and sushi bar was a pre dinner favourite of ours and had some good musicians . The all inclusive option was excellent but the sign for everything policy was a drag, maybe this will stop when the whole resort goes fully inclusive next year. There is very little to do in the hotel which suited us as we just needed to relax. We discovered that the hotel next door'The Excellence' is a sister hotel but we were not allowed to join in with their events at all which seems unusual. I had one concern (which I did voice to the manager) - there seems to be some confusion as to the Amada's target market. It is advertised as a couples/special occasion/anniversary/wedding hotel- and family resort. This was not always a good combination as we did have to leave the restaurant twice due to our 'couple' time being interupted by screaming, badly behaved children whose parents had opted out of parenting as they were on vacation. (No; we are not anti kids, we have plenty of our own,- some of the parents and kids in the hotel were wonderful..........,but as always its the few that spoil it for the many) An easy solution would be to have an 'adult' only bar and 'adult only dining' after 9pm. Not much of a big deal to implement. On arrival checkin took forever but the champagne made it bearable- we found that in room information was lacking - we spent the first day trying to work out where to find beach towels, was there beach service, etc, but we asked the other guests and they put us right. Having read tripadvisor reviews before we left we felt we chose well, and we were not disappointed, we met some lovely people and were 100% committed to enjoying every moment. As an extra note, there is not a business center so if you need to work bring your own laptop as the hotel only provided HP minis. Oh and another point the hotel is not anti gay....have no idea where that one came from but there were loads of gays at the resort having a great time . (if you are the american gay guy that pranced around the swim up bar in see through white speedos...note to self, pls do us all a service and buy new trunck's to cover your junk next year:) Don't forget your bug spray - you will be eaten alive if you step outdoors after sunset, bring lots of books, music and games. As a final note we noticed some of the guests behaving so disrespectfully towards the staff - management really should ask guests to leave if they arent treating the staff well. So Please- tip the waiters, they work incredibly hard and offer an amazing service, a smile and showing a bit of respect goes along way too. Without doubt the staff made our stay incredible - thank you all - you know who you are, Raul, Christian Martin, Yolande..Alfredo Freddy.too many to mention, you are very special people.Grasias.
