Arrived at 2.30am to find we had drawn the short straw with the hotel - the Goya! Room on 3rd floor was very oppresive, tiny, worst smell ever in room, odd door leading to room and to balcony, would not have stayed one night in that hotel. Immediately asked to be changed to one of the other hotels. The man on reception was very helpful and phoned the Velazquez (higher up the hill) but also ran across to the El Greco to see if they had a room to save us walking up the hill with our suitcases. We ended up at the Velazquez, which we think was probably the best of the three hotels. We had a room on the 8th floor, lovely views with the sea to the left and mountains to the right, with lovely villas and apartments in front. Sun came round after 2.30pm so we were able to enjoy it until the evening. Room was nice and clean, beds very comfortable, bathroom clean, maid service every day with clean towels. Food in the hotel not so good, although there is always something for you to eat. They seemed to use the leftovers from breakfast in the pasta every night, i'm sure the boiled eggs were the same ones every day, the evening food was cold whatever time you got downstairs, soup was like dishwater, we joked it was one-mushroom soup! However, there were things such as salads, pickled onions, grated carrots, beetroot, lettuce, odd dishes which i still do not know what they were, one or two meat dishes, one or two fish dishes (tasted same), one veg, one chips, maybe some potatoes if you were lucky, rolls were available (to fill up on), fresh fruit for pudding and melon, so although not the best in the world you can always find something to eat. Breakfast was boiled and/or fried eggs, bacon or chizoro or frankfurters, fried french bread covered in sugar!, cold meats and cheese, bread for toast, rolls, jams etc, a few cereals, fruit and yogurts. Again, you can always find something to eat. The beach was very close at only 300 metres, much nicer going down the hill than up on the way back though, but good exercise! Lots of nice places to have a drink in the evening around, a small cafe just down from the Los Pintores complex was quite reasonable and friendly, then lots on the main road. Lovely walk to the Marina, although we found it best to go on the main road pavement rather than along the sea as they Spanish people walk sooooo slow!!!! All in all, a lovely lovely holiday (as long as you end up at Velazquez!!!)
