The hotel had was lovely and very clean, the reception staff where very helpful and a quick check in. After reading some of the reports i was slightly worried about staying here. We had very little complaints about the room a good size and we and an amazing view of the sea. On our first night at the restaurant they had the entertainment staff on to greet us with a flower for the ladies and a small glass of cava for the adults. The food was always warm and there was a very good choice. If you couldn't find anything to eat then you must be a fussy eater (which i am and always found something to have). Most of the staff where very nice and helpful we did experience some problems with bar staff at the pool, serving Spanish guest before us but after a few days they began to recognise our faces and we got served slightly quicker.
We didn't use the hotels indoor facilities such as gym, spa hairdresser etc but had a look at them and always seemed to be in use. Staff also had fitness classes on in the morning which looked great fun. The pool however was a bit small and at times over crowded esp with children, the children's pool was very small and could understand why they used the main pool.
We didn't sit through the entertainment every night as it was mainly aimed at Spanish holiday makers but we did enjoy the live music and the flamenco dancers on two of the nights. It would have been nice if the hotel had catered for non Spanish holiday makers for some of entertainment.
The hotel is slightly further from the marina and solymar square than i thought a good 45 min to hour walk away, bus stops are outside hotel and are very reasonable 1 euro 30 to marina and bus run i think every 20 mins.
The beach was only a few mins walk away , or you could walk down the beach just in front of the sunset beach club you where able to take part in water activities.
I would also recommend heading to the marina and go on the dolphin cruise, a very bumpy ride but worth it, you see quite a few dolphins swimming and jumping along side the boat.
I would stay here again as i had a wonderful holiday and would recommend hotel to anyone.
