Very clean hotel in a residential area, great train link 2 minutes walk away which will take you up as far as Fuengirola one way and Malaga the other. Get the train from the airport as it's only 2 stops to Los Alamos and costs about 1 euro 35c. The hotel was full of Spanish people and packed when we arrived but it was quite peaceful after they left on Sunday/Monday. ABYSMAL entertainment - one game of bingo or one quiz PER NIGHT and that's it! Bar staff not great and certainly don't make you feel welcome but reception and restaurant staff were fine. Quite a few older people there, certainly do not go if you want a lively hotel. No music in pool area during the day and barely audible in the evening. Pool was very refreshing - not heated I don't think but once you are in there it's fine. There is an unpleasant smell of drains by the pool toilets so don't sit there! Our room was quite small and clean but they need revamping! Food was fine with something for everyone, pork, chicken, fish, veal and vegetarian options every day. Breakfast started at 7am and ended at 10am. Snacks were crisps and peanuts (eaten by the many birds in the area who often ate from the uncovered baskets of snacks on the bar!) and leftover croissants from breakfast. Lunch 1pm-3pm and dinner 7pm-9.30pm. Bottles/glasses of wine in restaurant with dinner and lunch which you help yourself to. The birds are many and some quite loud! You will get plane and train noise but it didn't bother me at all. The rooms have no soundproofing and there was some noise especially people moving chairs across the hard floors! I would recommend this hotel for a midweek stay but I wouldn't want to stay longer than a week personally. We didn't go to the beach but were told it wasn't very nice down there. On the downside the rooms need updating and tea/coffee facilities would be welcome in the rooms!
