A lovely resort. Yes, it is a bit dated in style with drapes, dark wood furniture, bathrooms& kitchens needing updated and a bit past their best, BUT, the place was spotless, comfortable, very good maid service with daily towel changes & very other day sheet changes. The 3 pools & surrounds were excellent, loads of sunbeds & brollies and shady areas under trees. Lovely grounds (the garden bit) although the shrubbery & trees had got a bit large and blocked the stunning mountain views. The poolside & evening restaurant was good, the restaurant staff excellent. Reception very on the ball and most helpful. The one apartment problem we had was dealt with within the hour. Can't ask for more than that!! The Ranch bar was disappointing, no entertainment or atmosphere at all although the venue itself had promise with a good terrace. Needs someone to shake it up a bit. Overall, a good resort well worth a visit. It is a little bit isolated, but a 10-15 minute walk brings a good restaurant (begins with letter 'A') into play, also an American 1950's/60's style soda diner with great pizza's & other stuff. And an absolute little gem of a pub/bar called 'Old Olivo'. Built around a 150yr old olive tree, grape vines & other climbers for a roof, a hedge for a roadside wall, back wall of trellis & more climbers. Young couple called Ediz & Fizza are the owners/hosts and they are terrific. Pay them a visit.
