We have just returned from a 10 night stay at Beatrice Palace and can not praise it sufficiently !
The building is very impressive with huge public areas, furnished very tastefully to an extremely high standard. Our room offered everything which we could need during our stay and was kept immaculately clean by polite and friendly room maids. Towels were changed daily and the bed once. The only sound which we could hear (through our open balcony door) at night was the tranquil sound of the sea's waves as they lapped the shore - BLISS !! How anyone could suggest they heard road noise beggars belief.
We met many members of staff during our stay, each one extremely friendly and with a genuine desire to offer assistance where ever they could. Language was no barrier as each one spoke at the very least a few English words and some were fluent. Indeed they put those of us who can only speak our native tongue to shame.
Breakfasts were amazing !! All tastes were catered for, even champagne to mix with the fresh orange juice if that was your fancy. I particularly adored the little pancakes and the gorgeous sticky croisssants.
The evening meals however did not really offer something for everyone. My husband does not like fish, and there was a lot of it ! One particular evening appeared to be a "fish night" as there was no alternative. On that particular evening I had a huge piece of fresh salmon with salad whilst my husband settled for chicken nuggets and chips from the children's choice.
A downside was the pool. Not so much the pool as the children within it !! There were no signs stating, No Jumping In or No Toys, consequently we were constantly dive bombed by fearless juniors leaping in off the sides and there were also some very dear children with powerful water pistols who were very indiscriminate with their aim (even spraying people with whom they were not familiar, on the sun beds.) I must admit that had they sprayed me whilst I was on my sun lounger I would have hastily confiscated their weapons.
The evening entertainment was quite alarming and could unfortunately be heard loud and clearly from our bedroom. On one particular evening the wailing was so painful that we could not quite believe that anyone could be willingly listening to the "artist" or how on Earth she managed to find herself hired to entertain the guests in the first place. On this occaision we closed the balcony door and were very grateful for the extremely efficient air conditioning.
As lovely as the hotel was, we will not return because the walk from hotel to resort was rather too far in the extreme heat (or even in the cool of the evening) and Fuengirola it's self was not really our "cup of tea". Having said this, the hotel was far too stylish to be anywhere other than away from the midst of the resort centre.
