Just returned from a lovely stay once again at the Florida Spa. Staff were excellent as always and keen to help. Evening dinner was of a good standard but cooked breakfasts were not so good - were better on a Sunday though - different cook? The hotel is ideally suited and the entertainment, although not to our taste, was well attended and supported by the clientele at the hotel. This is a very good 4 star hotel except for the exceptionally poor standard of towels in the rooms. They are threadbare and really let the hotel down.
I also have to mention the new system they have just introduced where the drinks you have in the restuarant are put on your room card. This causes a huge paper trail where you recieve a receipt at the restuarant, which the waiting staff have to process, and then you go down to reception and wait in the queue to pay your bill, which is in duplicate and is processed through the computer. This will never be able to be maintained in high season due to the extra man power it causes, never mind the paper it uses. There is the option to leave the drinks on your card till the end of the stay but my observation was that most people, like us, wished to pay as they go.

Without doubt one of the best hotels in Fuengirola. Good rooms, friendly staff, good service and a decent breakfast - what more could 8 golfers want?! And just a short walk from the old town where there are excellent Spanish bars and restaurants.

This place is great! I had a wonderful time. The place is very clean and the staff is so friendly. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. My money was well spent!
Customer service is something I always take note to wherever I travel. And the customer service I received here is something everyone who works there should take great pride in.
Will be coming back soon!!!

In my opinion this hotel should not be given 4 stars,I would say more like a 3 star. Rooms were all OK clean and well supplied with toiletries, view of harbour good etc. outside pool was far too small, could not have a good swim due to the size and depth. Food in dining room all OK plenty of choice, staff all lovely. My biggest problem was the hotel caters mainly for the VERY OLD!!! It feels more like a care home than a hotel, Zimmer frames, walking sticks and wheel chair users were the majority of clientele.This is absolutely great for the OAP's but me personally I would not have chose to spend a holiday of this sort.the evening entertainment sank to an all time low when the singer was singing "on mother Kelly's doorstep".

This hotel is very central, only five minutes walk from the train station and right on the beach. My room was facing onto the beach which was nice, however, in summer this might be a bit noisy. All the staff in the hotel were polite and friendly, being very helpful without being asked. Breakfast was well cooked, with fresh pancakes and eggs made in the dinning room. It was the small things that made a difference, towels in room to use at the pool, a robe to use in the room or to go down to the spa, coffee sachets etc, not usual in most Spanish hotels. Also, safe was a combination one and free to use. Spa was nice, give you towels and a swimming cap to use, however, need to pay everytime to use it ( although I was given a voucher for one free use). Outside pool area gets sun in afternoon, it is very small though. Well worth the cost and would definitely visit again.

Room Tip: Rooms are front facing for sun in the morning or side facing for sun in the afternoon

Just back from a 7 night break at this great hotel. It is in a great location opposite the marina. Wonderful food and great staff and service in the restaurant. Tea and coffee in the rooms as well as a fridge and safe at no extra charge,also bath robes and towels for use at the pool. Staff throughout the hotel were friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Room Tip: A high room with a limited sea view gives you the sun in the afternoon.
