Just got back last night, very glad to sleep in my own bed as the beds in the hotel were far from comfortable very hard with pillows that were too saggy! Sheets were changed once in the week we were there. Clean towels provided every day which were lovely and soft and white ! Also shampoo shower gel and soap every other day! Rooms were large enough for us, only two power points. view from window was the room opposite about 6 foot away!
The food was basic and we ate breakfast every day which, apart from the rolls which were very very hard, there was a choice of meats, cheese, boiled eggs, cereal, pate, yoghurt, and cakes and biscuits which were very nice , fruit juices,tea and very nice coffee! The evening meals were not really to our taste but were adequate, mosly frozen veg chips and meat/fish, soup, melon , ice cream and fruit ,
The staff were all really friendly and pleasant and they were never rude as some other reviews have said! a lot of the other guests were eldery spanish people who were not very sociable with the english guests and lots of very friendly english people who gathered on the roof terrace in the morning and evening exchanging tips on where to go and what to see which was good !
The main square with all the pubs shops and restaraunts is two minutes from the hotel and the beach which was excellent was a 10 minute walk down a windy lane of steps with shops on either side so plenty of excuses to stop for a breather on the way back up !
If you want to travel to other places the main road with all the buses is only a couple of minutes away and also the train which covers the rest of the Costa del Sol and both are amazingly cheap compared to our public transport ! We used the train to get from the airport and back which was much cheaper than the transfer we could of booked!
We found a lovely place to eat just off the main street in a little square called 'La Plazita'
run by a young Dutch couple, the food there was delicious and not expensive at all , if you go try the shrimps cooked in vodka and cream mmmm !!!
Finally I would say if the hotel could replace the beds with more comfortable ones I would definitely go back ! We did not pay a lot for our holiday and it was a very enjoyable week!
