We came here for our minimoon, after quite a tiring couple of weeks organising our wedding and sentido ama was exactly what we wanted. The apartment was great, the food was actually really good, the drinks were fantastic and we left really chilled and quite a lot chunkier than when we arrived.

The staff were the real highlight, greater waiters, superb bar staff and activities folk, and the magician was a 10/10. Would definitely return for some R&R!

Just returned from a peaceful and tranquil break . I had the all inclusive option in a room rather than an apartment which suited me as a solo traveler. A comfy bed awaits you and once awake a lovely breakfast will keep you going till long after lunchtime. Warm sunshine plenty of towels don’t take your own , free transport to the beach and shops . A 5 minute walk to the golf course . A perfect hotel for peace . If you like empty beaches to walk on at first light not a soul onsite for 90 minutes, they get busier at weekends and late afternoon when the locals arrive . Plenty of seafood for dinner and pleasant cold drinks .

We stayed at the Ama Islantilla for 3 nights and it was probably the most relaxing 3 days I have ever had. From the moment we were met by the super friendly receptionist, Filipe, we felt at home. We stayed in the deluxe two bedroomed apartment which was excellently appointed and very roomy. Having a balcony overlooking the gold course was a big bonus and the cooly decorated bathroom was a luxury.
We were on all inclusive which was a first to us and we usually like to try different restaurants. However, on this occasion we were glad we choose this option as the food was excellent. All meals had a very good variety and always something to enjoy. The fresh fruit and vegetables were excellent and on one evening there was fresh shell fish of every description crab, prawns, langoustines, etc. all lovely presented.
As we were ion all inclusive we made a lot of use of the bar where we were surprised to find not just local drinks on offer but premium spirits etc.
Pool and garden areas were very well kept and lots of sun beds son no need get up at dawn to reserve or to fight over getting one.
We made use of the bike hire and had a wonderful morning cycling alone the beach and swimming in the sea.
The spa was very good and the treatments very reasonable and professionally run by Irene and her team.
We also tried out the yoga lessons which were run by a really nice guy and we came out feeling so relaxed.
Which brings me on to the staff. They were fantastic and very friendly/helpful. All spoke good English (some better than some Brits I think!) and what was nice was to see them all seemingly to be enjoying there roles. So often we have gone to some hotels where the staff seem to be there against there wishes, not here!
All in all I can not recommend the hotel enough and will definitely be returning.

My boyfriend and I visited the Sentido AMA Islantilla from the 8th September for a weeks stay. We had an early flight so from arrival at the hotel we were tired and ready for our room to relax! Our holiday was booked through Thomas Cook and from flight to transfer everything ran incredibly smoothly which is all you can hope for! We were advised by the Thomas Cook rep that we would be given our room no later than 4pm however we arrived at 12pm, we were greeted at the reception by Filipe who was incredibly friendly and helpful! He shook our hands and welcomes us to the hotel and proceeded to ask us how our flight and transfer was all in all. Filipe advised us that an apartment had become available last minute (we originally were booked for a standard double) and we were excited for an upgrade! The apartment block is a short walk away from the hotels entrance however once we entered the apartment we were both a little disappointed as it wasn’t what we had imagined, it was a very large space but a little basic we thought, we rang down to reception and spoke to Filipe and explained that we appreciated the offer but would really like our original room if it was still available - he explained that this would be fine and we went back to reception. Our room wasn’t ready when we got back as it needed cleaning so we left our suitcases in the baggage room and went for lunch in the buffet restaurant. However once we were given a room we were then upgraded to one of their premium rooms which was incredibly clean and spacious! Overall we only ate out once throughout our weeks stay at a local pizza place in Islantilla which was delicious and fantastic value! (Pavarotti Pizzería Restaurante) all in all at Sentido AMA the food was of a good standard, at breakfast there was always a choice hot dishes, pancakes, churros, fresh fruit, yoghurts and cereals and a continental option, unfortunately with all meal times of the day it was a case that majority of the hot food was often luke warm or colder! The salad bar is always of good variety and the breads are very good too! Like most all inclusive buffets the food became a little samey and all too familiar choices were picked at every meal however you can appreciate the amount of people the chefs are accommodating for on a daily basis!
Overall the restaurant became busier towards the end of our stay as more guests arrived and often people had to queue for a table so you have to make sure you leave something of yours on the table so it doesn’t get taken!
The gym area is quite small but enough equipment for people to use, the outside space was useful too as the gym itself was quite hot each time we used it! We didn’t use the spa but did use the jacuzzi and indoor pool but didn’t really like wearing the swimming hats you have to purchase so used the outdoor pool everyday instead. As a young couple we came away for a relaxing week which we definitely had! The pool areas were clean but very cold! There were always plenty of sun loungers too which didn’t mean getting up too early to claim some! The pool bar staff tended to be the same woman (unsure of her name!) but she was incredibly friendly and always smiley, the drinks available for all inclusive were of great variety including local and big branded alcoholic and soft drinks always in great Spanish measures!!
Overall there wasn’t much entertainment aside from karaoke, a magician and some pool side games/sports and there wasn’t much going on in the little town by the beach (you can catch the train down there too!) however if you’re there just for a week to unwind I think it’s perfect! This hotel is incredibly modern and clean! The staff are very friendly who clearly work incredibly hard, would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family as it can be enjoyed by all! Ps, the little family of kittens who come out to play in the mornings and evenings were definitely a highlight!!

Thank you very much for such an extensive evaluation and description. It helps a lot of other travelers to decide on one place or another.

We have changed a little when it comes to presenting hot meals and we no longer do a lot of hitting to keep them warm.

See you soon

We had a lovely time at this hotel. Stayed AI and the food was very good. Staff very professional. My grandchildren loved the land train to the beach and the pools were all very clean. Entertainment quite poor. Some decent live music would have been nice but this is not an exclusive complaint to this hotel. We normally stay in five star hotels and have been disappointed with evening entertainment and I really don't know why that is. We had two of the two bed apartments. One was perfect and the other one was not. The bathroom needed a refurbished shower area and ants were present in the bathroom. The hotel was quick to respond and offered to deal with the ants but due to slight language barrier we declined just in case heavy duty chemicals were used and we did not want this exposure to two small children. We asked for a room change but it was ignored. We had a problem with one of our hire cars and the hotel staff were very quick to help us and solve the problem. Thank you. We were surprised at the 12 Euro per night car parking charges so we only used this facility for one night and then parked on the car clogged streets around the hotel. The hotel car park was almost empty. I have never paid to park a car at a hotel before but would have found a lesser charge more acceptable. For me this is a deal breaker.
