Absolutely stunning! Visited hotel to celebrate friends birthday and it lived up to all the hype. Rooms were expansive and had the best quality linens etc. Bathroom was nice and spacious,but a bit disappointed in size of shower gel and shampoo bottles,as you only got one handful and bottle was empty. Had dinner twice and food was excellent and fairly... More

Having heard so much about Sunday lunch at El Oceano, my expectations were set very high. 5 of us had drinks sat in lovely comfy chairs in a beautifully decorated, but noisy salon followed by the Sunday lunch menu sat at a round table. (I love a round table!). My salmon and crab roulade was good, not great, but my... More

Good morning Rose and thank you for your kind review. We are a little saddened to see "disappointing", as the rest of your review is really very complimentary indeed. You are quite right... Sundays are incredibly popular, as they have been for some years. Still, we very much appreciate four stars and very much hope you will consider us again... More

One star is too much, had a lovely meal, the wait staff were brilliant , but the policy of then moving the entertainment to the pool area because it so happened the weather was good and then expecting everyone to have booked a table at a further €150 per table before drinks after having paid for an afternoon food and...

On a positive note, we're glad you enjoyed the Sunday lunch menu and restaurant service! Sadly this is where the truth ends in BOTH your reviews. It is a total fabrication that we charge 150€ for a pool side table. In an effort to improve service and the overall guest experience, we do insist on a pre-order to secure seating... More

We celebrated a friend's significant birthday here with a late lunch. The recently refurbished setting is fantastic with beachside views , immaculate decor and a superb ambiance.

This has got to be one of the very best fine dining restaurants ever. The décor is magnificent, the staff are so very very nice and you cannot fault the food in any way.

Lunch on the way to the airport was simply Wonderfull! We enjoyed the fruits of the sea whilst enjoying french wine and taking in one last glimpse of the Med before heading back home. Our waiter was very accommodating and made us feel like the only guests in the restaurant. The seafood was amazing. 100% worth the trip!
