As in my previous reviews - cannot fault the Florida! Food excellent, rooms clean and spacious and once again our room was on a high floor overlooking the pool therefore getting the sun until late evening. (Mind you - not as much sun this year!) which brings me to my only complaint in 4 years - the lounges and bars were cold as the weather was cold outside. I did mention this 2/3 times and informed they would turn up the heat - but still miserably cold. However, that said - another wonderful holiday in excellent company - both staff and guests. Very special mention for the "little tornado" behind the bar - Miguel - who I am sure is destined for higher things! Please pass on Barbara & Davids regards!

Room Tip: High floor overlooking pool.

Stayed here for a week dec 15th, myself & teenage son. Despite the clientele generally being mature we had a fantastic holiday and both wouldn't hesitate to return to The Florida Spa again.
We arrived late in the evening and were greeted by very friendly reception staff. Our room on 10th floor overlooking the marina was just perfect. Spectacular views. Good size, extremely clean and a wonderful walk in shower with plentiful hot water at all times. The heating n the room was spot on as we had several fierce windy storms in the week but were able to remain warm & cosy. The free safe and excellent wifi in the room is fab.

Food was variable in choice, something to suit everyone at most sittings. Again very friendly & welcoming restaurant staff & a good atmosphere.

Spa & pool we used daily, always spotless. Robe, swim cap and slippers provided. Absolutely enjoyed every minute of this facility. Brilliant.

Natasha the rep was available and present at the hotel most days. Plenty of trips available to buy. The only negative we have is the free blanket trip for Merino Wool & Nerja offered at the welcome meeting. This was the only bad experience of our weeks holiday. You spend nearly 2 hours being SOLD merino wool products, which although no information is given on the product you get to endure a cringing 2 hour ordeal, listening to naff and personal jokes from inexperienced sales staff at there factory. Then taken to Nerja which although very pretty you arrive at 2.00 and have a couple of hours in Nerja. The problem is you are dumped there at Siesta times, so most of it is closed. Awful trip whether free or not!!
I must add this is nothing to do with The Florida Spa Hotel itself, the hotel are not responsible for this 'trip' it's just I would avoid this offer given out at the Thomson welcome meeting. Not the fault of Florida Spa

Location of this hotel is perfect. Opposite the sea. A short walk form the bus terminal & trains making getting out & about easy.
Plenty of markets and trips available even a car boot locally on Saturday.
Cannot fault anything at The Florida Spa, I will be returning without any doubt. Fabulous & wouldn't hesitate to recommend this for a perfect holiday.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family

We had a lovely room on 11th floor facing the pool so any sun shone through into the room into the late evening. I think the food has improved since our last visit last year. The entertainment was good although on a Tuesday when Ricky is there lots of people from other hotels come in and by the time you have your evening meal all the tables are taken even though it says "reserved for clients of the hotel" I think maybe these people should sit at the back of the room not take up the tables of the hotels clientelle.

Reception staff are very friendly and obliging we had no problems so didn't have to bother them at all.

We will return

Room Tip: Choose a room on a high floor overlooking the pool to get the most of the winter sun

I was actually on business in Fuengirola so it was amusing to find myself staying in what is essentially a 'holiday' hotel catering for what seemed to be the more 'mature' members of society!

That said, I found the hotel to be well furnished throughout and the rooms well sized, comfortable and kept very clean by the house keepers. The spa is great and good value at 10 euro for access to all of the facilities. The breakfast was very tasty, with plenty to choose from, but I can't comment on dinner as I ate out each night.

The hotel is in an ideal location to get to the beech, literally a 2 minute walk away, as are a whole host of restaurants and shops.

If you're in Fuengirola on business and require a bit of peace and quiet of an evening, its best not staying here as they have entertainment each evening with a variety of 'singers' belting out all sorts until about 11:00pm all of which is preceded by bingo of course!

There is good free WiFi and no problem getting good signal strength for your phone so if you are there on business that helps. I was on the 6th floor and depending on which 'turn' was on the music sounded like it was taking place outside in the corridor! But hey, the hotel caters for the 1000's of holiday makers that visit it every year rather than the occasional person doing a bit of business locally.

The biggest asset the Florida Spa has is the staff. Every single one of them I came into contact with, whether receptionist, waiter, bar staff, cleaner, whoever, whatever - all of them with a smile, friendly greeting and extremely helpful.

I suppose proof of whether a hotel is good or not is the question 'would you stay there again'?

Absolutely! I would definitely have no hesitation in staying at the Florida Spa again - in fact I'd look forward to it!

We really appreciate your kind comments, especially the ones regarding our staff, and are delighted to hear you would definitely stay with us again. We do have some guests who like yourself come here for business though as you well pointed out we are mainly a holiday hotel therefore we do provide entertainment for our guests.

A very well located hotel perfect for the town, shops,bus and train station as well as the beach. The staff quite brilliant! Hotel itself shows signs of wear and tear in most areas. Room very good if a bit on the small size. Swimming pool and loungers looked in need of attention.Kettle and safe very much appreciated.Food a bit mixed but generally below 4 star standard.Entertainment over amplified noise which was difficult to get away from. All in all good value for the price but very average. Did not use the spa and fitness centre. I would most certainly visit Fuengirola again, the fact its a working town as well as a resort made it all the more interesting

Room Tip: I was on floor 7 with good views of the sea and mountains, no noise problems at all.
