We stayed for one night having never been to Almunecar. We managed to park right outside the hotel, and the helpful receptionist said that at this time of the year there was no charge to park on the road. The hotel reception was bright and the staff were most helpful! We were soon off to our room on the fourth...

Once again I left Britain , cold dreary, dark, for the the bright blue skies of Costa Tropical. This hotel is beginning to feel like coming home, bright, welcoming, and friendly. What a surprise, all newly painted, decorated, bright and cheerful, but I do feel the heart of Spain has been torn out , I loved the beautiful lamps in...

My first holiday abroad alone, and first Christmas away also. Having recently lost my daughter, I didn't want to spend Christmas at home in UK. I met two other ladies (seniors also) also on their own, so didn't need to be alone all the time. I definitely made the right choice to come here. Lovely spacious room and verandah. Buffet...
