We have had our 3rd holiday at hotel itaca and would go again its so friendly staff are more like friends than staff they cant do enough for you, so we would like to thank them all. the only complaint we have is the evening meals there is not much variety and not very hot i think on our last review we also said the food should be named as its hard to tell what some things are fis is easy but meat dishes cant tell what it is ,we hope to return again next year.

Stayed: October 2013, traveled as a couple

My friend and I booked this hotel in the middle of August. The reviews at that time were very good and it was those which helped us chose which hotel to stay at. However, some of the reviews since then had not been good, so went with an open mind. We had booked 7 nights with half board.

We had booked a room with a balcony and pool view, to reiterate this, my daughter, who speaks Spanish fluently, rang the hotel the weekend before we went just to check that one had been booked. On arrival we were very pleased to find that the room was on the 2nd floor, complete with balcony and pool view. We could not have had a better room. We knew before that it would cost an extra 6 euros a night but it was well worth it and if we do return then we would book a similar room.The room had a TV and a fridge.

The staff could not have been more helpful and were always very pleasant. The pool and the surrounding area was always very clean. It was a very pleasant area in which to relax. Our room was spotless and was kept so by the housekeeping staff.

The hotel could not be a better situation. 10 mins walk from the bus and train stations. 3 mins walk from the beach. 2 mins walk from the supermarket. 10mins walk from the main shopping area.

The breakfast was fine, the scrambled egg delicious!. However i feel that the only thing which let the hotel down was the evening meal. There was not really much variation in the starters from night to night. The main course, we felt, could have been better. If a tray of hot food was empty it was not replaced with another, it seemed that once a dish had finished that there was no extra in the kitchen for any latecomers. The dessert lacked imagination. On our last night there one of the choices was yogurt topped with breakfast cereal, both of which had been available at breakfast. Some of the meals were better than others, there was very little choice. It seemed to us that it was a great effort to provide an evening meal at all. However, the wine was very good!

Generally we really enjoyed our stay., If we do go back then we would just do bed and breakfast.

Room Tip: It is worth paying the extra money for a balcony with a pool view

we booked through direct line and at no time where we asked if we wanted a balcony so, if you want one, stipulate with your holiday company, or you may not get one. we didn't and when we enquired about paying the extra the hotel was full. Breakfast was identical every day, and for some would be a bit on the cool side, but there is a microwave. Cant comment on dinner or evening meal as we didn't have those. Wi Fi was hit and miss.
Now after getting over the initial disappointment of not being able to have a balcony, the room was a fair size with a very comfy bed which was, Superking? the Air conditioning is free and very efficient and the free mini fridge was very handy. but the small window made it feel a bit like a "cell" and there was no net/voile across the window so if you opened the curtain you were in full view of anyone in the side rooms/corridors of the police station across the street Now for the bathroom... oh dear, it has to be the worst bathroom we have ever had, Now I am not a fussy person, I dont mind basic so long as it is very clean, It deperately needed a complete overhaul the tiles on the walls near the door were loose/moving, a ceramic wall hook was broken and had pretty sharp edges to it, the plughole where the hairdryer was wired up had a space in the tiles where water could get through, if the bathroom was steamy enough, and the way the hairdryer was wired up left something to be desired and the tiles over the bath looked and felt like they had not been cleaned in a very long time. The shower curtain was a bit grotty as well. However I would think the balcony rooms, judging by the photos would be of a better standard. Now the hotel is in good spot, Don't let the cop shop put you off, there was never any noise, brilliant for the bus stop to Marbella, % minutes walk to front and plenty of eateries on the way in down the side streets, and in a handy spot to get to Fish Alley, and very handy for the bio park which is well worth a visit. Would we go again? maybe, if we could guarantee a room with a balcony and a better bathroom

Room Tip: Stress With your travel company or contact the hotel to guarantee yourself a balcony

clean beds lovely breakfast 5-10 minute walk from centre but close enough to activities. Breakfast basic but excellent value for money - fruit, cooked English, continental, cereals, toast etc. friendly staff and would definitely recommend for those who like the smaller more private setting. Highly recommended by ourselves and our friends and would book again especially if prices remain as low after the completed refurbishment

Room Tip: we had an upstairs room by poolside bungalow currently being refurbished

Great Location this hotel, five mins to the centre, full of shops, bus and train station. I would recommend using the train from the airport, at 2.60 euro per person one way and same on the way back, there are every 20 minutes, very modern, much better than UK trains. The staff at this hotel are lovely, the housekeepers do a fantastic job cleaning daily. Pool area is great, was warm for the time of year, cleaned daily.Bar prices were a little on the expensive side. The rooms you do need a balcony or you would feel too cosy for my liking, but they are practical, the air conditioning is free and fantastic, always hot running water , the TV does not really have English channels, you can get wifi on the balcony or in reception or by the pool. I think you need a road room to get wifi. Yes there are some things not right like curtain hanging down, bulbs missing and not all electric sockets working. Restaurant is the best part, pleasant environment comfy chairs, food is sufficient for a 3 star hotel for what we paid, hot and cold breakfast, in my time never ran out of anything, service good as well. WE used travel republic, my only niggle is they should be clearer on what guests get as when we booked we did not know we could not get balcony rooms and you have to pay more, which you do not mind if you know it is 6 euro a day, the safe is 21 euro for the week and you should have the option of booking this from the start and guarantee this. All in all great value for money and great staff and base, would return.

Room Tip: need a balcony room

just come back from this hotel having spent a week with 5 friends, the hotel is no looker but don't let that put you off, as the staff make up for it with their customer service.
we had rooms 505 and 508 which are next to the pool outside the main hotel building and and room 402 in the main building. the rooms are good for the money the bathrooms could do with a bit of updating but they were clean and the maid serviced them daily. the rooms have a mini fridge and aircon.
the hotel is a short walk from the local square and and the bars and restaurant's of fish alley, the beach is a block away and takes 5mins to walk to.
when we got to the hotel room 508 only had a mirror in the bathroom and for a group of women this is never enough, so we asked reception if they could help and the next morning there it was an extra mirror in the room.. anything we needed the staff helped us with, I will stay her again just for the staff.
