Stayed for our usual 3 days away on second week of December leading up to Christmas. We had booked the Amaika as usual, but were advised by Travel Republic a few weeks ago that it was shut. We elected to give the Volga a try, based on Tripadvisor reviews and also knowing the area fairly well. We arrived at 10.30pm and as we had booked half board and missed diner had food brought to our room. A very nice touch.
The hotel itself is lovely and kept immaculate. We had a nice room on the second floor overlooking the pool, as we think everyone in the hotel had due to it being quiet. The pool area is very nice and the seating areas laid out arounf the perimeter would be an ideal spot to relax when the weather is warm enough.
We were very impressed with the quality of the food. There was a very good selection of meat and fish dishes and I would think that they are using produce and ingredients at the upper end of the supply market. Usual loads of cold meats and salads to be had if you prefer that and there was always some show cooking if you were prepared to wait or wanted your meat or fish done a certain way. Wine and beer is served by waiter if you fancy a drink with your meal and this is paid for at the table.
The main bar and lounge is large enough and well appointed. There is a bit of entertainment put on at night and even although the hotel was quiet, we took in a decent flamenco show. Bar prices are very reasonable (on a par with local bars vodka/cola and a pint of estrella e7.50) There is a cocktail of the day a e3.00 and these are properly prepared a shaken.
All in all, the Volga is a very well presented and run establishment. Don't concern yourself about the trains as we actually amused ourselves watching the local youths sneaking on and off without paying. A sign of the times in Spain I suppose.
We think we will come back more in season to try.
