We booked the Santa Rosa from The 5th to 12th September.... on arrival we were sent across the road to the sister hotel,Torre Arena as the SR was fully booked. We arrived at 10pm and were told to leave our luggage with reception and go for dinner... bonus after travelling . The food is not fantastic....most evenings you have salad...then fish... sometimes sardines, 2 nights swordfish( extremely bony) 5 nights out of 7 there was belly pork on the menu, one night beef and one night chicken legs. There was always soup and pudding.... mostly we stuck to fruit. Breakfasts were disgusting.... one big tray of scrambled egg which had to be reheated in the microwave, selection of bread which took ages to toast( 3 times thru the machine) and 3trays of cold meat. There would be yogurt each morning but only 15 or so, therefore if u were not down really early you got none. Our room was on the 1st floor, 4 beds ( there were 2 of us ) with a view of 4 other Windows!! We asked to be moved and were told to ask on Sunday. We did, and were moved to 2nd floor, a twin room with balcony...not big enough to sit out on but enough to let you step outside, if you looked left you would see the mountains, to the right was other balconies and straight ahead was a Wall!!! The rooms were spotless, beds made up every day, fresh towels every day too. The pool on the roof is open from 11 til 7:30, but by 6:30 hotel staff were hovering, waiting to get everything closed up. The cafe on the roof is a hit or a miss,meant to be open same as pool times, . It was often closed early afternoon and not open again. There is no bar in the hotel,there are no kettles etc in your room, and the reception has no water or drink machine, so buy water etc from the supermarket immediately next door. The hotel is In El Morche, a wee quiet village on the sea . The next main town is Torrox Costa, not a huge lot there either but the sea front is beautiful. Local buses serve the village well,and are very cheap... much cheaper than hiring a car. RAFAELS bar in El Morche is worth a visit... he is right on the sea front and open until very late ie 2am,or whenever the last customer goes home..... the food is great, wine is 1Euro per glass, free WiFi, and he plays music in the background all night.....he's even been known to bring out his guitar to entertain you . You have free WiFi in the Torre Arena, you have to pay to use it if you are in the Santa Rosa.... I was told 5Euro per day when I enquired at reception. All in all,it really wasn't bad apart from the food. The weather was fantastic and there wasn't a mosquito in sight.
