ILUNION Hacienda del Sol
Ranked #8 of 27 Hotels in Mijas
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Just came back from a week long trip. Old hotel in a very isolated area, we would recommend a car as that is what saved our trip from being a nightmare. There is no activities for children whilst we were there, so all the kids swamp the baby pool. Every morning the loungers are covered will towels of people who you then never see and the hotel does not do anything about it even though they have a policy on this type of behaviour. There are simple not enough loungers for everyone. Whilst we were there someone decided to take a number 2 in the pool, so that was closed whilst it needed a clean..... Not pleasant at all. I guess from the price you expect that kind of behaviour from the clientele that were staying during our visit.... Rooms were clean, staff were friendly. There is no food between 10:30am and 1:30pm, so make sure you have breakfast or a car to get out or your stuck, this we found out to our cost. Food quality is ok, simple buffet, no frills. Entertainment is Edmundo on his electric keyboard, not great but you kinda find it funny and an experience towards the end, 7 days of the same music. Getting a drink is hard work at night time and the place was not full. Again, not enough tables, chairs and they need more staff. This hotel was not full and we found service slow and a long process, but have to say they are very friendly.

Stayed here for 10 nights recently. Hotel has lovely grounds and a fantastic pool. Food is average but we didn't starve! Plenty to chose from at breakfast but poor selection of deserts at dinner. Evening entertainment is very poor, a man on his electronic keyboard who sounded like a Eurovision reject!! There were some poolside activities for the kids but they were mainly Spanish kids but my son was happy to join in. Hotel was very clean though so no complaints there. It really is in the middle of nowhere. You can get a bus up to Mijas which only takes 5 minutes or a bus down to Fuengirola but the buses stop running at 10pm. We were half board and the bar drinks were quite expensive so it may be better to go all inclusive. We went with our 7 year old son and didn't pay over the odds for the holiday so cant really complain. If you want a quiet and relaxing holiday this is the hotel to go to although the most exciting thing to happen to us was the bush fire on the road outside the hotel!

Room Tip: We had a room on the top floor overlooking the pool. Had to change from the original room we were of...

We stayed there with our 2 young kids as a first stop on a longer trip - kids didn't want to leave! Room was clean and very spacious. Nice clean pool. Good buffet breakfast. Plenty of space for kids to run around. Overall very satisfied with the place as it was very reasonable money.

Lovely tidy hotel great views of the surrounding mountings but you must hire a car as you cant walk anywere as there arnt paths but there is a bus stop outside . Its about 15 mins drive to nearest beach 5 mins, to nearest mini market (quiet cheap) lidl 7 mins away lol. rooms very clean good air conditioning mini fridge but no kettle or irons available !! But they do offer a laundry service rooms would suit 3 star but hotel its self is defo 4 star .the hotel offers indoor and outdoor pool .tennis courts , gym , table tennis , mini golf . Staff are extremely friendly and help full

Make sure you hire a car our you will regret it I would recommend you give gold car rentals a wide birth

Very clean rooms, an excellent evening buffet and an efficient booking in and out system,promises an enjoyable stay. The pool and outside terraces are well laid out with plenty of space. The only downside is the location. The road into Mijas is along a steep and winding road neccesitating use of the local bus service.

We have been four times and always enjoyed it especially this year and it has improved. The staff are very welcoming and happy to help anytime,the will cater for your every need and the bus trip to Fuengirola and Mijas is very near by and staff will provide you with a bus timetable. The cleanliness is first class and the food also. Beautiful views from every window. Bed and breakfast and all inclusive are both a great value. Would recommend to anyone thinking of booking here and we will gladly come for our fifth time. This place is a true Hacienda
