“Good value, reasonable standard ”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

We made a reservation of 4 rooms using a well-known booking website, which forced us to book breakfast separately for €11 each. We then found out through the receptionist that breakfast was free with the room, but she could not refund us as the booking website had already taken the commission. So €44 spent for nothing.

Not the hotel's fault, but be aware if you're not booking directly with them.

Hotel in the whole was ok. It has a good kitchen, but during our stay the dining room closed early and we had to have dinner in the bar area. Barman/ waiter was as miserable as sin but did the job.

Rooms ok, clean and comfortable. Didn't make use of the pool/ spa facilities but they looked very good.

Good, cheap option if you have to stay in Lorca area.

Stayed May 2014, traveled on business

Two couples stayed one night in Lorca, and chose to stay at Amaltea Hotel & SPA. We had nice rooms, all clean and tidy.
I just wish there were more carpets available in the rooms, it was a little bit chilly during the night.
The staff was friendly and helpful, but the reseptionist forgot to tell us that they had a special gourmet lunch this week, so we missed that. It was a little bit annoying.
We had a good dinner in the restaurant, and the service there was excellent. The restaurant had a good variety in the menu list, big and small dishes, and all of what we had, was delicious.
We had SPA in the afternoon, and it was a great experience - professional and helpful staff, nice and clean, and a good variety of treatments. The prices were OK.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked OK, but the rooms towards the town had the greatest view.

I stay here regularly for business and prefer this hotel over all others in the area. It always feels as if you are the only person staying as everywhere is so quiet! I am always guaranteed a good nights sleep here, which is rare for me in hotels.
The service is always great, very efficient. Being a sole traveller I tend to order room service for dinner, and this always appears in 10 minutes and is very good. Breakfast is varied and very fresh.
The gardens are beautiful and the spa is well worth a visit.
The rooms are very large and have everything you could need, with huge comfy beds and unusually for Spain, kettle and tea bags etc.
A large shopping center is only 2 minutes away by car.
Highly recommended - although I feel a little reluctant as I don't want the hotel to be invaded!

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view room, otherwise you will be overlooking the neighbouring petrol station!

Great hotel, spacious rooms, clean, comfortable. No balconies but big windows that opened. A/C. TV etc. All rooms seem the same size with same furniture.

We were allocated a room overlooking the forecourt of the neighbouring petrol station but reception changed for a pool view with no fuss.

Pool very nice, clean and not very busy. Pool bar open with snacks etc.

Most of the staff speak a little English but remember its a city hotel so a great place to practice your Spanish.

We were not aware the main restuarant would be closed during August/September but not an inconvenience as there was a bbq on the terrace every evening for 14 euro's which included salad bar, a selection of bbq'd meat and jacket potatoes, dessert and drink plus coffee. Everything very reasonably priced.

Breakfast was included in our package and had a great selection there was also a choice of fried breakfast to order as well at no extra cost. Great fresh juices and lovely coffee.

Very reasonably priced on the whole ,check out their website for offers that are not quoted by booking agents. We requested a late check out and was accomodated without extra charge. We will be returning again in September..

Newish designer hotel but difficult to find- just off ring road, follow directions to hospital. 2 kms from Lorca centre. Good value, large modern rooms. Ask for rear rooms which overlook gardens and pool. Excellent restaurant. A quiet area with free car parking. The must see in Lorca is the Castle.
