Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We loved staying at Sahara Sunset Hotel, our apartment offered everything we needed and everywhere in the hotel was extremely clean and tidy. The short walk along the promenade offered plenty of choice for bars and restaurants and the nearest supermarket was only 10 minutes walk. We will definitely return

We booked this just before the lockdown was lifted in the UK. We took the risk it was all going to be ok and it was.

We had a two-bedroom apartment overlooking the pool for my husband and I and 2 teens.
It has everything you could need including a coffee maker, microwave, toaster, cooker and full size fridge freezer. Flat screen TVs in every room, but we did not even turn them on on as we spent most of their time out or sat on the the balcony .

Balcony  had a an umbrella for shade if needed, a big table to eat and 6 chairs.

Smart tiled shower and good wifi, air con and comfy beds with egyptian cotton bedding.
Slept like logs with no noise from outside.

The location is perfect as you are in the centre of everything so no matter which direction you go, you will find the beach, bars, restaurants and shops etc.
The pool was immaculate and sprayed with disinfectant every couple of hours including the sunbeds (which by the way you book for 4 hours at a time as part of C19 measures)
The bar has a real broad range of drinks and they do a good cocktail menu.
We did not eat at the hotel restaurant but it looked good.

Free on street parking outside.

Super impressed with this resort. From check in to check out our experience was nothing short of almost flawless. We were put into one of the newly refurbished two bedroom apartments and from the great shower, usb ports by the bed and super modern amenities - it's one of the best foreign apartments i've stayed at.

Staff were very helpful and friendly too!

Only minor inconvenience was the ongoing building work at the complex which meant we had to walk the long way around to our accommodation (and closed the indoor pool early when we had already bought all day access!) but you can't fault them for performing the works during the off season!

All in all, a great stay here, will definitely be back.

We stayed for a week end of October 2019. we had a fantastic time. Beautiful resort, we got a room with a view of the ocean. I do not understand how anyone can give a bad review. We have travelled many places and this was by far one of the best. From the front desk staff to the restaurant staff to the ladies cleaning the rooms. We had an excellent experience and cannot wait to return. It is about a 3 min walk to the beach where you can rent a sun bed for $5 for the day. We just took our towels from the hotel which you do not have to pay for, you just hand in your key card in exchange so you bring them back. You can walk to Torremolinos via the boardwalk right along the beach, takes about 30 mins. there is a hotel right in front of Saraha Sunset that has a roof top bar - some nights with live music - but exceptional views! well worth a visit. Diego and David in the restaurant were awesome. Made you feel so welcome and they have really good food there. Great cappuccino.

We stayed here with RCI during October. We had a maisonette with a part sea view, 704. Reading other reviews I expected the accommodation to be tired and in need of a refurbishment. I was pleasantly surprised, as it was clean, plenty of room and nice. The maisonette has a mini fridge, coffee machine, kettle, iron and ironing board. Robes and slippers were provided as well as large pool towels. The coffee machine takes illy coffee pods which you can purchase at the supermarket over the road (10 euros for 15, resort charges 1.50 euro for 1).
The queen size bed and pillows downstairs are really comfortable, however, upstairs the bed if really hard.
The resort itself is lovely. It has a private beach with loungers and beds, but you have to get up early if you want to be on the beach, otherwise there is always sun loungers available around the many pools.
There are plenty of restaurants nearby, a meal for two with wine costs 35-45 euros.
There is a cafe over the road which sells baguettes and so forth which we frequented for lunch.
Units 701-707 (excluding 703 and 704) overlook the infinity pool as in the advertising picture. We were in unit 704 which is just behind them, we still had access to the pool but had a limited sea view . Although they were empty from Tuesday to Friday, when we asked if we could be upgraded we were asked for an extra 100 Euros per night which I thought is extortionate since the accommodation and use of the pool was the same as we already had. The infinity pool is only 90 cm deep so you can't really have a swim in it either. However, it was really peaceful and private as we were the only ones there.
Overall we had a really pleasant stay. I noticed a lot of other reviews stating that the resort/accommodation is not 5 star but when you compare it to other resorts which are classed as 4 star it definitely is. This is Greece and like Spain the class of 5 star compared to the UK is different. I have stayed at many 4 star resorts through TUI and this resort is definitely a class higher.

I found this Hotel as a part of a last minute trip to get a final bit sunshine. I was travelling on my own and only booked for 3 nights away at first.

Only 20mins or so from Malaga airport I arrived to a very friendly receptionist (Connie) who explained all the COVID-19 measures and what changes to expect. There was a really detailed procedure in place, far more than what we see in the UK!!

When I was given my first apartment it was huge, the only downside however was that due to the season there was no sunshine on the terrace (which by the way comes with 2 large sun loungers). I mentioned it to reception shortly after I'd received the keys and Alexandra (The Resort Manager) instantly moved me to an alternative apartment which got the sun most of the day! No fuss, and she didn't make me feel like it was too much trouble at all.

Apartments: So let me just say how impressed I was with the quality of these apartments. They have the most modern equipment Zanussi Fridge freezer, Microwave oven, electric hob & oven and come fully stocked with all the household items you may need - i.e dishwasher tabs, washing up liquid, cleaning clothes, kitchen roll etc. There are flat screen TV's in the Living area as well as mounted on the wall in the bedrooms. Beds are really comfy and the air conditioning is so quiet and efficient you don't even know its on.

Pool: During my time here the pool was implementing social distancing so you had to pre-book a slot for 3 and half 4 hours but they were pretty flexible considering that occupancy was very low.

Staff: From the pool and restaurant staff, Pamela, David & Sean to the Reception staff the service was absolutely fantastic. I felt very safe, well looked after and subsequently extended my stay for an additional 4 nights.

I would definitely recommend this resort for families, couples and solo travellers. I'll be back for sure

We stayed here in December, 2019. We were met by a very friendly and helpful Receptionist. The only problem was we had difficulty finding our apartment. We think that a nice addition here would be to have a staff member accompany us to our apartment as it is a very large complex. Other than that the apartment was very well equipped, dishwasher, microwave, great security, spotlessly clean, we had a problem with the heating it was sorted immediately. The staff were cleaning constantly.

A fantastic place to base yourself, family whilst down in Costa Del Sol. Very well situated along the coast. Accommodation is really nice, all staff very pleasant and professional. Facilities excellent both inside the different types of accommodation and around the pool and in the restaurant, even during the COVID pandemic, all health and safety precautions religiously being followed.

Just returned back from a 7 day stay here. Check in was great, temperature checks on arrival and quick check in. Staff do not help with bags which is understandable so be warned if you have an upstairs apartment as no lifts.

We had a 2 bed apartment in the Royal gardens R1, which was lovely quite shady balcony though if you are after a sunny balcony i would go for royal oasis or a top floor apartment.

The new rules with covid were ok, we did not realise it would be 3 hours slot for the pool, which for us with a baby was hard. We tried to go to the beach but was impossible as no shade. We could not get a slot on the first day as full, you have to be up before 10.30 we found to book especially if you want the 12.45-3.45 slot which seemed the most popular. We found some days if you arrived to the pool an hour before the slot ended, you can always grab a bed, so its not to bad, I asked reception and they said they were pretty much fully booked which is why it is hard to get a slot.
We were very disappointment one day to get back to our beds, after finishing a drink in the pool bar, to find peoples stuff chucked on our beds on top of our towels! we were absolutely horrified especially with the covid, in the end the lifeguard asked them to leave as they did not even book a slot just sneaked in!

We loved the area, lots of restaurant, bars with great choice and pretty much everything was open.

We liked the pool bar and the lady and man who served us were great with tasty food shame they are only open 10-6.

We hope to return soon after the quarantine ends, we had an enjoyable stay!
