Stayed here from 12th January to 9th February, 2014. Nice comfy room with black out blinds. Unfortunately there were no coffee making facilities in the room but we got over that by buying a travel kettle. The safe in the room cost €2 a day and for 28 day was expensive. I think for long term guests there should be a special rate. Otherwise, I thought it was a lovely hotel, staff where extremely friendly, particularly the dining room staff. Thought the food was fine, plenty of choice, and I would recommend it. We hope to be back there next year.

We decided to try the hotel again under new owners Mac after a disappointing visit when run by the Riu group. We found the staff very helpful. The room on the top floor was excellent. BUT THE FOOD. Breakfast was just passable Dinner was terrible the food was cold, the veg was raw. the skinny cut chips were like concrete. meat dishes were undercooked or very salty.
Unless the hotel invests in a good catering manager to improve the food the hotel will go further downhill.
Will I go back? No I will go elsewhere like most of the Germans that used to go there.

Room Tip: High floors sunny side

Thank you for taking the time to post your review on tripadvisor. We are surprised to hear that the food was not of your liking compared to other years, especially when we are receiving good feedback from other returning guests. We have taken note of your comments and we will certainly take it into consideration during our daily controls of the food quality.

Once again we would like to thank you for your comments and are very sorry to hear that you were not very satisfied of your last stay with us.

Stayed here for three nights in February 2014. Good comfortable rooms, with excellent sound proofing and black out curtains. The exceptional quality of service from the staff and small extras such as champagne on arrival pushes this from merely good to excellent. Highly recommended

Brilliant location and very nice clean hotel. The waiters in the restaurant were all very welcoming. The food was really good with a variety of different dishes to choose from. The only major let down was the entertainment in the hotel . Oh the bed was a bit lumpy,had to ask for extra pillows which was given instantly.

Room Tip: Ask for extra pillows and request a higher floor because the bottom floor was quite noisy at times

Late 10pm arrival but complimentary drink and dinner waiting for us. Front desk staff were extremely helpful with suggestions and directions for excursions. Try El Torcal in Antequera. About an hours drive but well worth the visit. A gentle hike rewarded with outstanding views.(You can find more information on Trip Advisor.) Food was more than adequate, buffet style and an extra surprise was nightly entertainment. Particularly enjoyed the flamenco dancers. Added to this was the low winter rate. I wanted to stay for another week but the hotel was fully booked. The Marina location was excellent and free parking available directly outside. Beds are a little on the firm side and may not be to everybody's taste. Overall, a great experience and would definitely stay again. Others have posted about the sliding doors rattling in the wind and I must say I noticed this but it was never loud enough to interfere with my sleep.

Had a very enjoyable 11 day stay at this hotel mid January. A very friendly, helpful and efficient welcome by Monica on reception ensured that our first impressions were good. We were more than satisfied with the hotel and area throughout our stay. Everything was spotlessly clean and the friendly staff, excellent service, quality and choice of food are commendable. The only negative was the rather too firm beds. The hotel is in a quiet location (at least in January) but is very convenient for walks around the lovely marina and sea front promenade. There is also easy access to the main N340 road along the beautiful Costa del Sol. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: We had room 257. This gave open views over the pool area and glimpses of the sea without looking di...

Enjoyed a week here last week of January. Booked direct with hotel at excellent price of £58 per night half board for both of us.
Rooms are spacious and clean, comfortable beds, plenty of storage with proper coat hangers, nice bathroom, towels a bit thin.
Breakfast good choice with hot and cold buffet excellent bread. Dinner 2 sittings would have preferred open time. Good choice of food and excellent quality with very attentive staff, especially Fernando.
Hotel is in good location next to Marina and promenade. Drink prices average for 4 star hotel,entertainment every night reasonable standard.
