I booked this hotel (the Santa Rosa's sister hotel Torre Arena) for a week away with a friend in late August and we absolutely loved our stay. We were both 19 and looking for a holiday with both nightlife relatively close by, but also the chance to relax during the day. This area/hotel definitely achieved that. For a 3 star hotel I was pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of the room, and both the breakfast and dinner. There wasn't a large selection for breakfast, but there was enough. There was a larger selection for dinner and all the food was good, we definitely didn't go hungry.
Other reviewers have complained about the lack of English speaking staff, however we didn't share this problem. All the receptionists spoke English, and we had no language barriers. Yes, outside of the hotel in the bars there weren't many English speakers, but ordering a drink or food is easy enough.
The area is quiet, which we liked, with a beach and plenty of bars and restaurants both along the beach area and along the roads and streets. The area is relatively lively at night, with families and large groups of people all out. The beach is brilliant at this time too.
One thing that we really enjoyed was La Noche, a bar held in the back garden of the Santa Rosa. The garden was stunning, with lights all around and candles on the tables, and you're practically sitting on the beach to watch the sun go down: perfect.
There are loads of bus services close to the hotel, and the hotel has all the timetables in reception. The buses go practically everywhere along the coast for extremely cheap prices. We travelled to Nerja several times to enjoy the nightlife as there are no clubs/lively bars in the immediate area.
In summary, I would definitely recommend this hotel and/or area. Everything we expected from a 3 star hotel was met, and more. The food, rooms, and staff were all great, and the surrounding area was just what we wanted. A perfect holiday experience.
