ILUNION Hacienda del Sol
Ranked #8 of 27 Hotels in Mijas
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Stayed here for 1 week all inclusive from 26th June 2014. Cannot criticise this hotel. All the staff and management were very friendly and helpful. Food was great. The rooms and communal areas were clean and we felt we needed nothing more. Short bus journey up to Mijas which was a typical white washed Spanish Town.

The outdoor areas were also very well kept and there was plenty of room.

I have stayed at this hotel twice now, and it has been great on both occasions.

The hotel sits a few miles up the hill from Fuengirola on the road to Mijas. Therefore it is out of the way of the main coast. There are busses up there, but I would recommend people who want to stay here, to have a car for full flexibility.

It really is in a great location if you want to get away from the high rise crowded hotels on the coast itself. There was no fighting over sunbeds here and it was just pleasent to sit out by the pool which boasts amazing views down to the coast itself. The pool is great, and there is an indoor pool too and gym. However this looked like it was being renovated.

It is a quieter hotel, there is no entertainment and there isn't really anything to do with kids. So I would recommend it for couples who just want a quiet relaxing time away. You are away from 18 - 30s as well! Mijas itself is a charming (very English catered) village just a few miles up further, and currently has 1 euro parking all day in the multi story which is great!

The rooms themselves were nice, well equipped with fridge, air conditioning etc. Vending machines in reception, full wifi coverage, even out by the pool. Staff were nice and English speaking.

My only gripe is (as with a lot of hotels) is that breakfast is only served till about 10.30am which yeah I struggle sometimes being out of bed, and ready for breakfast by then. I sometimes wish hotels would take breakfast right up to midday.

We did take the evening buffet, which was over 18 euros per person. To be honest, I found it terrible value for money, choice wasnt that great and it wasn't particularly nice either. The breakfast however (on the day i did make it!) was very good. If you get evening meal included with a deal with your room, then great, if not, skip it, and go eat in one of the many wonderful restaurants in Mijas or Fuengirola.

Room Tip: If money is tight. Try and get a deal with full board.

Rooms were basic but clean, with a great shower. Pool is lovely, close to beach. Town of Mijas is a short €10 taxi ride away. Drinks there are cheap, food is gorgeous. Hotel food is good too, with buffet breakfast and plenty of options for lunch. Great bar too. Staff are slow but polite.

Overall, would stay again but maybe would try hotels with nicer bedrooms.

Room Tip: Choose a Room with pool view

Hotel Hacienda Puerta del Sol more than lived up to my expectations.

The wonderful wide terraces and very well - kept gardens are delightful. You can enjoy
breakfast in the cool morning air, lunch and drinks, both in the sun or in the shade.

The hotel rooms are cleaned daily by friendly staff. The buffet dinner was also good and varied,with those in charge constantly overseeing the smallest detail, making sure that not only the food, but also its presentation was perfect.

I got the impression that the running of this hotel and taking care of guests was done with dedication , and not merely as a business, as one finds quite often that the personal touch
has disappeared from many hotels.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view to the sea are great

What a delightful hotel ! We stayed on a B and B basis in June 2014 and were more than pleasantly surprised. The room looked up to Mijas, the lovely town further up the road.

The hotel is almost equidistant between Fuenguerola and Mijas. 1.65 euro for any journey on the local buses. One day we caught the bus to Fuenguerola and then took the connection to Benalmedina. Timetables can be obtained at reception.

A lovely pool set in beautifully kept gardens. Rooms were comfortable and very clean. A plus would be tea making facilities. Staff were friendly and efficient.

I'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: Really , the hotel is built in a kind of squarish horse shoe shape, and either you face the mountain...

After being off put on so many other places because of Trip Advisor reviews my friend and I were pleased with the reviews for Hacienda Puerto Del Sol. If you read the reviews on Trip Advisor you would probably never go anywhere on holiday! However, here I find myself writing one.

25 minutes from Malaga airport. About 40 euros in a taxi.

We stayed all inclusive which was a winner as we estimated you could easily spend £300 on food and drinks and we paid £175 each all inclusive for 5 nights.

There was breakfast, lunch and dinner and on top of that bar snacks from 1pm - 11pm. I am a very fussy eater but did not go hungry. Breakfasts consisted of toast, various styles of eggs, meats, sausages, beans, cereal, fruit and breakfast pastries. Lunches and dinners had various meats and fish and pasta and salads and cakes. Even chips and pizza. Bar snacks were toasties, chips, burgers. Endless drinks from the bar.

The entire place was clean and tidy and well kept. The hotel staff were hardworking and helpful.

From the previous reviews I was led to believe it was more for the older generation. I am 35 and my friend is 19 and there were a lot of older people but also a few young families and mid aged couples. This is not a problem as it is only a short taxi ride to the beach and buses also for about 3 euros.

If I try to think of anything negative the only this was there was good Wifi signal but only on the terrace, not in the rooms and there was only 1 English channel. But don't see either of these being any hard ship.

In summary, I would recommend this hotel and would definitely go back.

Stayed at the Hacienda for a week. Was well above my expectations. It's ideal for a relaxing break. Hygiene is exceptional you can smell the cleanliness. Staff very efficient all happy & smiling nothing a problem. Was originally there on a b&b basis but upgraded as deal was good & food was good something for all tastes. Room basic but spotless. Mijas & Fuengirola both easy to get it via bus & very cheap. Would highly recommend if looking for total relaxation & I will return
Thanks Hacienda
