What to expect, a pool/beach holiday centred on the hotel, unless you are prepared to travel a few miles to Marbella for some alternative entertainment.
The hotel is fine, it has some nice gardens which are well maintained,along with an attractive chalet style layout. there are also rooms in the hotel with pool/sea views.
Food. There was a good buffet selection of quality and quantity. our only issue was the scrum of people at breakfast [lunch and dinner better] and a lot of the hot dishes were not !
Entertainment. aimed at the children and The Spanish guests, not much to get your attention here.to be fair we only watched 3 or 4 times,so maybe better nights were missed.
Day time activities, there were various organised games going on,including a small rifle range and archery. There is an indoor pool which is open from end of Sept.
The beach is good and is right next to the sunbed area, there is a fence which keeps the traders selling fake sunglasses etc from getting into the hotel grounds.
Service, well what can I say !! apart from being greeted at reception on arrival after midnight, with the news that they had kept some dinner ready for us [a nice touch we thought] I have never stayed in a hotel with such a strange attitude to customer service.
especiallly behind the bar, you would get your drink ok. but without any manners whatsoever,your card would almost be snatched out of your hand and the drinks slammed down in front of you.Hello or thank you would of been nice but they were the same to everyone, so don't get a complex about it. ps. go for the all inclusive if you use it a lot it is good value.
Rooms We were in a chalet which had two large double beds and a good sized bathroom,everything worked but it is close to being in need of a makeover. Don't worry about being near the main road, you can't hear the traffic.
Also if you choose a room with a sea view it may overlook the pool/entertainment area so an early night may be a problem.
