Our family of five spent a weekend at this hotel in a family room. While the kids really liked the bunk beds, I felt that the "rustic" theme was just an excuse to not update the furnishings and décor. The room had one bathroom with a separate room for the parents. There were two bunk beds and a sofa sleeper. The room was relatively clean and I did not notice if it had air conditioning as we did not need it during our stay. The room was located on the ground floor right next to the outside patio. While the double doors blocked out some of the noise, you couldn't escape the cigarette smoke from the bar and the patio. The floors are tile so you can hear people above clicking around in their shoes.
The Don Quichotte restaurant was not very good. We ordered the family meal for dinner because it was a good value, but all the meat was overcooked. The breakfast buffet was a little limited. Be sure to get there early or it will be picked over. Breakfast runs until 10:00. By 9:15 there wasn't much left. We had a better evening meal at the Medici Restaurant in the Italian themed hotel across the road.
The location to the park is perfect as the entrance is behind the hotel. You can easily walk to the other hotels to use the restaurants or bars. Be sure to make reservations for each evening meal. There is a desk in the reception area of El Andaluz that can make them for you at any of the other hotel restaurants.
The best thing about the hotel was the very kind and helpful staff. They noticed at check in that my husband and I were staying over our birthday and they left a nice bottle of champagne and fresh fruit for us. Very nice!
