Ok - this place is not 5 star according to English standards, but for the price we paid I couldn't have asked for much more.
A few things let the place down - I'll start with these.
Bedrooms a little outdated with single beds pushed together to make a double bed, aircon not working, hit and miss hot water supply.
One thing that did disappoint is that on three occasions we asked reception to supply an extra pillow each to us, this never happened (despite assurances it would). One pillow per guest is a little mean and the hotel was far from full, so they must have had spares!
I enjoyed myself immensely at the Alhambra and can not fault the rest of my time there.
Really comfortable sun-loungers which were clean and good quality. Adel the pool supervisor supplied us with clean towels every day. He took so much pride in his work and was constantly cleaning in and around the pool, ensuring the guests had everything they needed and was an absolute pleasure to speak to.
The bar staff, especially Medali were always keen to speak to you and friendly. The service they offered was second-to-none. They kept us refreshed all day around the pool (and all evening in the bar!) and brought dishes of cheese and olives with every drink we purchased. Always pleasant and smiling.
Beautifully kept grounds with many gorgeous birds chirping away and stunning plants everywhere.
The food was buffet however chefs also cooked meats, roasted veggies, omelettes and crepes etc. from scratch further down the buffet table. Well stocked buffet too - never stuck for choice.
Can't wait to go back.
