We arrived here on the 7th July at 11.30am following a very fast private transfer in a Mercedes
Car.we decided to use the toll road at a cost of 7 euros extra to save 15 mins possibly not worth
It but to us it was and thankfully our room was ready to check in,again very fast as only us at the counter.
The door lock/ card entry system refused to work until many in and out attempts and likewise the
Toilet flush had the same fault.
The food is OK and you won't go Hungary,unless you stand by the leg of pork station and wait for
The Chef to slice you some and likewise the next night with the roast beef.
Puddings are really nice and always a good selection of fruit although the breakfast is not great
the Chef ( if on station ) will cook the bacon some more for you if you ask,along with fresh
Fried eggs omelettes and pancakes to your liking.
Orange juice pastries and cakes plus cheese ham fresh crusty rolls and bread for toaster,although
You could die while waiting for toast (6 times per slice per side )to brown on conveyor.
We had problem with noisy bad mouthed Brits next door and we moved to what is clearly the
Spanish section of the hotel.
The key card worked first time the toilet flushed with a blue tinge first time,the view was stunning
Over the golf course and the mountains,our neighbours both sides are Spanish and very quiet.
The hotel is 80% Spanish with a few Germans,eastern Europeans and thankfully only a few Brit
Yobos ( why are they always Brits who are drunk and foul mouthed )
We are here for another week and will do final report when home,oh and flight was with Jet2 it
Left 10 mins late and got to Malaga 20 mins early.
Worth a mention is the staff are really nice and friendly attentive waitresses plates cleared quick
Or do it yourself if you want.
Pool is beach entry with lifeguard, it smells a bit sweaty and I have not really smelled any chlorine
Or witnessed any cleaning of the pool.
I pointed out some loose floor tiles round the pool to one of the groundsmen as They tip up and
Could injure someone especially the toddlers.
One day later not repaired.
