We have been coming here for about 20 years or so with our children then a pause ourselves
Then with one of our grandchildren . We have always liked liked the place since reading about it as one of the best 100 hotels in the world around 25years ago by the Harper and queens travel writer , the gardens , so pretty , then the 3 pools , the beach restaurant , the buffets etc.
Last time about 5 years ago , my goodness a makeover with taste has taken place .
The beach restaurant ,now the sea grill is a place that dreams are made of of at night particularly
Or by day , we arrived in time for lunch a week ago what a setting , simply sensational , the food does not quite match the surrounds ,but is still good , the service perfect .
At night on subsequent meals our feelings were reinforced -this is the place in Marbella-we did venture out of the hotel once , but regretted it , returning to have a drink in the Hollywood splendour of the bar area .
We also had lunch at their Del Mar on the beach -excellent .
The serafina independently run from the hotel was a dissapointmenr , sadly ,tepid food , nothing special at all , we had high hopes here after the reviews , maybe a bad night , but we didn't try it again.
The problem was our first course was presented in 5 minutes , mine was crab cakes with a very bland sauce ,and I love crab cakes, my wife prawn pil pil curiously not spicy , hopeless. Truly .
And so it continued .
The snacks at the smaller pool at lunch were perfect , service again excellent, not haute cuisine but just right for lunch.
Our room with it's vast bathroom and large balcony , was perfect , a garden deluxe suite .
We had 2 buffet lunches at the Marbella club next door ,part of the same group , my goodness , this was luxury made flesh, the best buffet with lobster , best beef Wellington , the best asparagus , I could go on, any meet or fish cooked as you want, even the suoerlative sandy lane buffets paled by comparison .
A drink or two in the plaza at the hotel of an evening with a live band was a plus .
Didn't try the suite or the Japanese as they were not open during our sty.
So all in all, combined with fabulous October weather in the 25/28 range , no wind , blue skies we had a ball.
