We have stayed at Villa Padierna for the 4th time now.
So it is obvious that we like the hotel very much. the rooms are great, the pool area and the rest of the hotel is simply beautiful. It is very nice for golfers as you have 3 very good golf courses right at the hotel. It is also just a short drive to Marbella and Puerto Banus.
During our stay in October 2010 we noticed a lack of service in some areas. Maybe this was due to the transition from Ritz Cartlon to the new management.
When we came back now in April the service had clearly improved. The staff is very friendly and attentive most of the time.
The only thing we really did not enjoy is the 'new' breakfast. While until last year they offered a nice buffet in the beautiful restaurant (I think it is called La Veranda), they now changed it to an a la carte in the other restaruant (La Loggia). First of all the other restaurant was much nicer but most of all we clearly preferred to ba able to get most of the food from the buffet, instead of ordering everything a la carte. Now they do have some bread, fruits and yoghurt on a small buffet and everything else needs to be ordered. We do not like that and furthermore it is very time consuming if you need to order a slice of ham instead of simply getting it on the buffet.
I really like the place but hope they improve the breakfast. otherwise we will consider other hotels in the area for our next trip to Spain.
