We stayed here for a week on a Thomson holiday that we booked at the last minute as we needed some relaxation and a bit of sun. We were not disappointed!

Firstly, I will say, that staying at the end of March, we were among the younger guests and the hotel does cater towards a more mature age group. However, don't let this put you off!

Everything is the hotel is catered to make guests comfortable and happy. The facilities are really good. The rooms are well equipped with a safe, a small kettle with tea and coffee and a fridge in every room. We paid a little extra to ensure we had a shower and we were on the 11th floor of 12, with a large walk-shower and a balcony and sea view. Perfect for relaxing in the afternoon with a beer or wine and watching people coming and going along the promenade.

Other facilities include: an outdoor pool with lots of sun loungers (not used as it was a bit chilly but I did see some other guests using it) and a poolside bar with pool table and dart board. There is an indoor pool and spa. As we were on a package, we could use the small swimming pool and jacuzzi pool for free, there was a small charge to use the steam room and sauna. The indoor pool is lovely - highly recommended. My husband and I also had a massage on the Saturday evening. I booked a 1 hour massage while my hubby went for a 45 minute one which we asked to have at the same time. When we arrived, they had set up 2 massage tables in the same room, so we had a couples massage. James was able to relax for 15 minutes at the end while I finished my massage. It was a great service and good value for money - again, I would recommend having a treatment if this is your sort of thing.

Food and drink facilities: there are a couple of bars, the main one being the Miami bar on the ground floor. Happy hour is 8:30 - 10 every night - you get two drinks for the price of one! Bear this in mind, as we were not aware when ordering and my husband was perplexed when he ended up with 2 beers! Suggest you order a beer and a short and enjoy! Good drinks selection and the bar staff are like human dynamos but manage to stay cheery and pleasant!

The restaurant is superb. We had half board. For the breakfast buffet, you can have hot full English type breakfast, continental, lots of different breads and cereals, plenty of fruit, yogurts and pastries. Dinner is also a buffet, again there is a varied choice of English and Spanish / Continental type food to suit all the guests (mainly English but some Dutch, German, Scandinavian, Czech while we were staying). I highly recommend the fish - it was always tasty and the salads. I was less keen on the dessert selection (not enough chocolate puddings!) so I ate lots of the fruit, which was a great selection and really fresh.

Overall, the hotel is spotlessly clean. The staff are also a real asset - nothing was too much trouble and they are really cheery and look to really enjoy their jobs. They are really kind and helpful to the more elderly guests too, which I thought was pretty special.

Regarding the situation of the hotel, it's very conveniently placed, right on the beach and in the heart of the 'beach' action, near the marina. There are plenty of nice fish and tapas restaurants near the marina for lunch. It's also only a short walk into the town centre and the more traditional Spanish parts of the town. You could walk to Bioparc from here (we didn't have time to visit this). Also a short walk to the bus and train station if you want to go further afield.

Definitely recommended! A fantastic stay!

Room Tip: Pay extra if you can to get a balcony overlooking the beach. The higher floors are relatively quiet and have great views along the coast.

Had a good 10days at the florida.better than i thought it would be. half board good choice of food and plenty.Breakfast the same spoilt for choice.All rooms have tea/coffee facilities replenished every day.We had a room overlooking sea high floor. There is three lifts one which takes you down to the spa. free jacuzzi and indoor swimming pool which we used every day, so relaxing.you had to pay to use sauna/steam room.Books are left outside lift area and in the library.the hotel as different things going on at nights singing /dancing, we didn't go as it is not our taste but it seems to be busy.The reception staff are helpful.The pool area is a bit small and it can be windy but clean and plenty of beds.the beach is just over the road and very clean.the promanade goes on for miles lovely at night.

Had a very enjoyable 7 day break in the Florida Spa with two friends, on a bed and breakfast basis (25th Mar - 1st Apr) and found it excellent in all ways. Breakfast buffet includes everything you could possibly want, from freshly cooked eggs/bacon, to fruit/cereals to porridge etc etc.

The resort is just winding up for the summer season so great choice of restaurants are available outside at reasonable cost too.

We didn't use it but entertainment was available in the hotel most nights.

The resort also has the south terminus of the newish Fuengirola to Malaga coastal train service which provides easy travel between resorts, very good too.

One slight downside, the TV's in the rooms are lacklustre by today's standards; small, blurred and prone to problems (although Reception quickly put it right).

I would happily return.

Room Tip: There are 'superior' rooms at each corner, worth a bit more too.

My husband and I have just returned from a weeks stay and the Florida Spa. As of many reviews before us we couldn't find anything to complain about .we were offered a sea view room at no extra charge but decided to stay with the one overlooking the pool where the sun was at its best in the afternoon. We did have a little problem with the mattress dipping in the middle , we bought it to the attention of the staff and the mattress was immediately changed[ not many hotels would do that]. We chose half board as we are not big drinkers, this was definately the right choice as alcohol everywhere was so cheap, even the hotels happy hour good value. Excellant location and do use public transfers to see areas also very good value. would definately reccomend it .
