“Fantastic hotel, fantastic resort”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

If you are going on holiday during May and you want peace and quiet in a beautiful hotel, La Herradura is the place and Sol Los Fenicios is the hotel. The rooms are huge, food is delicious, the roof terrace is an absolute delight and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Watching the sun go down from the hotel's roof terrace is amazing. I can't recommend this hotel and resort enough. Will gladly return and look forward to the day we do.

Room Tip: The town itself is quiet so it shouldn't matter which side of the hotel your room is located.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel from 2nd – 9th October 2012. We were greeted by Arantza who was very welcoming and very helpful during our stay as was Rosa.

The room was large, spacious and very clean. The hotel staff were the friendliest of any hotel we have ever stayed in. The food was plentiful and there was a good choice. If you didn’t like one thing you could always find something to your taste. There is a small pool which was very clean and relaxing along with a terrace on the roof where you can enjoy the view or have a drink.

The hotel is situated near the end of the bay. There is a bus stop outside. The buses are not that frequent and you really need to hire a car if you want to get out and about. The buses to Almunecar run from outside the hotel (about 6 per day I think). If you want to go further afield then the main roundabout which can be reached by going up the road next to the market is where all the Alsa buses stop. They do not stick to a rigid timetable and if the bus is 10 minutes early then it may not wait. The bus to Nerja costs about 2 euros, and another euro and another bus to the caves. Buses to Granada cost about 16 euros return. As we went out of season we could not get any organised trips as they were either not running or booked up.

If I had any suggestions it would be that the wi-fi should be inclusive as it is in most hotels we have stayed in. You may not want to pay 4 euros for an hour if you only want to check a bus timetable.

Our taxi to the airport was due to pick us up at 8am which is when the dining room opens for breakfast. The dining room was opened for us on our day of departure at 7.30am so we could have breakfast before we left.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at this hotel and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor have a terrace which doesn't have a view, so maybe a room with a balco...

My husband and I and 2 friends spent 2 weeks at the Sol Los Fenicios hotel, La Herradura, 23/9/12 to 07/10/12 and we had a wonderful time. The staff at the hotel without exception, were friendly, caring, very pleasant and made us feel really special. The hotel was spotlessly clean everywhere, one of the cleanest we have ever stayed in. It s a small hotel which is really nice and we appreciated the warmth and friendliness of every one of the staff members including the Manager who was 'hands on' each day, Also, the bedding was changed daily which was great! The hotel occupies a lovely position, situated next to the beach and the views are breathtaking.

If I had to complain about anything, it would be that the hotel is not open all year round, such a pity!

Well done all of you and we send our very best wishes to you,

Mavis & Neil Ryder and our 2 friends.

We were staying in La Herradura for a wedding and this hotel was recommended by the family.
They were doing a special rate of 62 euros per night for room and breakfast. That was value enough and as long as the rooms were clean we weren't too worried about the breakfasts.
Well the rooms were spotless, staff very friendly and the buffet breakfast were superb.
There is a swimming pool on the roof with a fabulous atrium going from ground floor to roof.
I must mention Arantza who was the receptionist and was very helpful.
We stayed 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it

We spent a week at this lovely Hotel mid Sept. (just avoiding the biblical floods which arrived the next week). The weather was superb 28 degrees most days. If you are after a super chilled break this place ticks all the boxes. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and well appointed with comfortable beds, fridge, sea view etc. The Hotel is just across a quiet road from the beach and in Sept. we had no problem parking our hire car right outside for free. The beach is pebbly or coarse sand and slopes steeply into the water, swimming was fine the 1st few days until a plague of jellyfish arrived making swimming dangerous. The rooftop pool offered a good alternative and although not large was never crowded, having it to ourselves most days. The hotel has a large roof terrace with superb views over the beach and bay with ample sun beds tables chairs umbrellas etc,. The food at the hotel was OK but not outstanding and being a buffet seemed to vary depending on when you arrived. We went for the half board option as it seemed good value but if we stayed again we would go for the B & B. One good thing is you can substitute your evening meal for lunch and choose from a small menu but all the food is freshly prepared. Although buses to Almunecar pass by the Hotel, a hire car is a real boon as it allows one to travel from the relatively quiet village of La Hurrendura to the bustling town of Almunecar about 5 miles away. All in all a lovely hotel in a superb location, we shall probably be back!

Not to be too boring but I second all the good reviews below.
A lovely small hotel with pleasant and friendly staff. The rooms are large and very clean and the breakfast buffet very comprehensive indeed - you can sit outside overlooking the bay whilst you eat.
If I had one issue at all, it was the jellyfish in the sea - but I can't really blame the hotel for this !
