Great hotel, with style and ambiance : loved the location of the pool, way above ground level with fantastic views of the beach across the road and in to the distance left and right - see the photos.
The cafe there, La Piscina, serves very good cold and hot drinks eg coffee 12 - 6, food/snacks 12-3pm and 12 -1pm happy hour. And you can buy a 4 ltr bottle of water there for 1.50 Euro to put in Fridge - 15 euro for fridge key. Easy to use, free safe in room as well, and tea and coffee facilities. They provide small cartons of milk, but we used to bring up glasses of milk from breakfast and keep in fridge. They provde white sugar and sweeteners.
Great choice of food both at breakfast - from Porridge to Champagne ! Lots of cold and hot - including great omelettes made to order. The evening selection from salads to main courses was very varied as well, including great roast beef , pork or lamb, with reasonably priced wine. Well Done. And thank you Matre'Ds, Carmen and Graciola for your friendly and helpful service.
Room with a view ! Ours was over the pool and we loved it. Fab shower, and if you need to keep up with the UK news etc,there 3-4 UK channels including BBC1 on a very good flat screen TV.
Room Tip : if you dont like lifts that much and are not keen on walking up flight after flight of stairs , then try for one of the rooms 200 to 220, one level up from the pool. If you use the stairs be aware there are timed light switches at the start of each pair of sets of stairs - as they can be dark and dangerous otherwise.
Great entertainment by day and night with the team of Mille,Craig, Dan and Ellie - first class shows in the evening down stairs of West End quality - Mia Mamma was fab. And in another show they were singing songs written before they were born - with great skill ! The fun and games around the pool by day were great - but there was no pressure to join in. The competitions Mille et al set themselves were light hearted and entertaining - like when Millie stood on one leg for over 7 mins - great applause from those around the pool !!
What was also of a very high qualityin the evening down stairs was the key board and singing of the duo Laura and Jesus - very talented pair. Laura is not only a great singer but could also teach dancing like Salsa. And for Jesus, lovely voice eg - one minute singing like Roy Orbison and the other moment like Willie Nelson !
At the Rivera cafe across the road happy hour : 11 am to 1 pm great for lunch time ! And 2 comfy beds, a parasol and 2 sangrias for 5 Euros !! Rivera owned by Yaramar : just show your Yaramar beach towel for discount. They serve great sardines cooked fresh and a wonderful ice desert with a creme brulee type toping - delicious !
There is no better place for walking : across the road from hotel is an 8 km virtually flat, very wide promanade. We saw many jogging, fast walking as well as disabled/elderly using motorised
low vehicles ( dont know the name type ! ) for getting about. UK papers of the day can be bought at a store a short stroll from hotel for 2.20 Euros
We plan to return again !
