We stayed for a week at this hotel on an all inclusive basis..
LOCATION: about 2km from the town centre but is on the beach and 100 metres to a regular bus service. The train station is 600metres away with 20 minute service to Malaga and/or Fuengirola and only about £1.50 single.
ROOMS: we were on the 7th floor of the main block - Size excellent overlooking the beach (side view like all rooms), cleaned daily.
FOOD: Excellent choice for all meals. Heard some people complaining but then they would never be pleased. Ok not the best I have had but certainly for us it was ok and was 4 star buffet.
STAFF: ALL staff were very friendly and both bar and restaurant service was excellent.
ENTERTAINMENT: Not our choice on several nights but only 1 person organising the entertainment and he worked VERY HARD, where in other hotels they have a team. Flamenco was boring went on too long and seemed same dance.
WIFI - yet again another hotel where wifi is only available in the reception area and is expensive €10 for 1 hour.
GLA NIGHT: A Little disappointing start for New Years Eve: After dinner we were not allowed into the bar and although we were in the marquee there was no music etc. so for 2 hours we had to hang around, BUT the rest of the night from 9.30pm was very good.
SALES: no sales team on site we wanted to get a quote for a group booking but was referred to the internet which couldnt handle our propsal!
OVERALL A GREAT EXPERIENCE - and I am an ex hotel inspector with 25 years experience.
