Fantastic new hotel opened in June 2012. Great location - 10 minutes from any of the decent surrounding towns (Fuengirola, Benalmadena & Mijas) & about a half hour's drive from Marbella & Puerto Banus. Also a 20 minute walk from the beach - would reccommend driving or using free train service. The hotel has great facilities, 2 outdoor floodlit tennis courts, numerous floodlit paddle tennis courts (big sport in Spain apparently!), a gym, 4 pools (including a fantastic adult-only rooftop infinity pool) & an indoor spa complex. Food is good. There are 2 restaurants - the buffet restaurant & a more upmarket a-la-carte restaurant called Al Rolo. We didn't sample Al Rolo, however we ate in the buffet restaurant every day for breakfast & once for dinner. Food was fresh & varied every day. Recommend the omelettes in the morning & whatever the chef is cooking up on the made-to-order grill in the evening. If you are not full board the buffet in the evening costs €20 each. The room was fantastic. We stayed in room 504 which was a junior suite. It was on the top floor of the hotel so had amazing views of the complex and also a sea view. The room itself was split onto 2 floors with a lounge area, minibar & a bathroom on the ground floor that led out to the balcony. The upstairs was where the bedroom was and another (open) bathroom (no door separating it from bedroom). There was also a bathtub at the end of the bed which was quite random. Worth noting you have to leave a room key in panel by the door to keep aircon switched on. The staff were very warm & welcoming & always happy to help. Secure indoor parking is good if you have a car. There are electric cars available to hire at a cost of €40 a day and have a 100km range on them. Great for daytrips. Wifi is free and you can pick it up anywhere in the hotel which is handy. Pool towels are given to you at reception when you need them. Feel free to message me for any other info, but overall I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice new hotel in a great location on the Costa Del Sol with great amenities and some peace & quiet (there were hardly any kids so ideal for couples). I would place this as a 4.5 star hotel :-)
