On arrival we stepped over what looked like blood on the front steps and were greeted by a solemn receptionist who checked us in. Despite asking for a room with sun, we were allocated a ground floor room with a north-facing terrace so it was dark and cool. On a positive note, the room was clean and very spacious with an impressive wet room and plenty of wardrobe space. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The decor was minimal to the point of being non-existent. Sadly there was no robe or slippers and no complementary tea, coffee or water or anything to indicate it was a 5* hotel.
The main problem came when we wanted to get ready for a dinner party with friends. There was no hot water for the bath so my wife rang reception and was told that someone would be along to help. After 30 minutes wait, I went to the front desk and was told that they had a lot of complaints as there was no hot water at all in the hotel but it would be restored in about an hour. This meant we were unable to wash properly before getting ready and going out to dinner.
Next morning the shower was excellent but there was no sign of a socket anywhere near the only mirror in the room to use the hairdryer. Reading reviews here I think it is hidden in a drawer under the basin but we never thought to look there!
Breakfast was ok - not the best but just the usual buffet. The "hot" food was tepid but the omelette was made fresh so was good.
When we got to check out we asked if there would be a reduction because of the lack of hot water and were told that it was a "government power cut" so beyond their control. I contacted the booking agency but the hotel told them that there was no problem with the water and that no-one had complained. Unbelievable!
All in all it was a really disappointing experience especially when we had read so many positive reviews.

Probably one the worst 5 stars hotel I have ever seen. The staff was not dedicated at all, by check out not even a have a nice day or a nice travel. Housekeeping was not done properly, had to ask to be done again.
Booked a junior suite, rooms were big but really not enjoyable, no decoration at all. No bathrobe, no sleepers...everything new design in the room but not practical. Forget about that hotel, not even a real 3 stars.
The only enjoyable thing was the view out of the room over the Sierra Nevada.

Stayed for two days. The standard room with double bed and sofa was so spacious. The bed was really comfortable and large. The bathroom was very stylish and with a large separate shower room.
We had one evening meal at the buffet restaurant. Normally I would avoid buffet but the food was so good and a variety of options to choose from.
Our room overlooked the pool area. Would definitely use this hotel again.

Excellent rooms, massive beds, the most comfortable I have slept in!
Great golf resort with 27 holes.
Everything was exceptionally clean, well appointed bathroom - slightly open plan with bath in main sink area, separate toilet and shower.
Extremely large balcony (we were on the 3rd floor), not sure if lower floors had the same space.

Room tip: Rooms overlooked either the golf course or grounds, the former I would say are preferable with afternoon sun.

Positives the rooms are spacious clean and well designed with wet room. Internet is very fast. Golf course is interesting and easy to walk it is nice having 27 holes. The staff who work around the golf course bar are the most efficient I have ever seen.

Small negatives food in the restaurant was not five star quality the Spa is expensive for what it is. The greens on the golf course are 2 different speeds.

Overall would definitely recommend as location next to the marina means that you have lots of choices for eating outside the hotel.
