“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

We staid only one night but enjoyed the place: nice large rooms with sid view to the sea. Epuipment is fully ok, pool on the top is nice and also nice place to relax. The hotel is in front of the beach ie only 2 minutes walking ... And you are there. There are enough restaurants in walking distance from the hotel.
Staff is friendly and helpful ... But very busy ie I am not sure there are always enough people but maybe it s because it was not yet peak season.
Only major drawback: wifi access is for a fee which is not normal anymore.
La Herradura as such is a quieter location on Costa del Sol.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with side view to the beach. In the back of the hotel it s a bit quieter

My wife and I stayed here for a few days on out Honeymoon break, we are not strangers to this town so we knew we were going to a nice place, it was our first visit though to this hotel.
even with our very late night arrival the front of house staff were very helpful and professional, the check in process was quick and efficient and they had laid on a complimentary bottle of champagne for us, very nice touch.
The room was very clean, well equipped and had a small balcony that you could sit out on and see the beach from.
The bed was massive and very comfortable, the bathroom was clean spacious and nicely finished.
There was a refrigerator in the room that kept any drinks or perishables nicely chilled down
The breakfasts were very good with a good selection of cereals, cooked dishes and fruits available with the bonus that the breakfast outside lounge overlooks the beach so a lovely view while you set yourself up for the day.
If you don't fancy using the beach and sea there is a roof top pool that you can go up to instead, this offers the added benefit of great views along the beautiful bay.
Take the time to explore the many restaurants along the seafront and be sure to visit the far eastern end of the bay, across a small bridge where we found an outstanding eatery where the service and food was absolutely fantastic.
There are also some good local shops where you can pick up fresh fruit and sundries to take back to your room if you choose to do so.
Great hotel, beautiful location, we will definitely be going back again.

Room Tip: if asking for a sea view, check which face of the building your room is on, ours was listed as a sea...

La Herradura, of season is a beautiful small place hour drive north from Granada. I been in this hotel a few times before for conferences and this time for relax and writing... definitely book a room with sea view (I choose 319 dubbed "EX", don't ask me why) is just a few bucks more expensive but the panorama all day long is priceless. The place is very friendly, quiet enough, the restaurant has buffet and otherwize a decent menu, or you can walk to nearby restaurants. The beach at 50 meters from your door, what else you can ask! A swimming pool? in the roof top you have one. Personnel?, they are all very friendly and accommodating , you need anything just ask. I will continue coming back to this hotel as long as I can.

Room Tip: Choose the EX room (319) is quiet and nice sea view

This is the 3rd time we are staying at this hotel and we still love it. (Sept. 12th to 18th, 2013).
However the management needs to do something about the prices or include extras fees (see below) into the room price. This you can expect from a **** hotel. Or reduce to *** rating.

Main reason why we came back again:
1) Very friendly and helpful staff.
2) Cleanness of whole house
3) Location is 1A

Concerns:
1) WIFI by far too expensive: €4/hr; €11/day; €31/month!!!!
2) Garage too expensive: €17/day
3) Minibar empty. Not even a bottle of water was there. For a 4 star hotel not acceptable!

But else, we still recommend this place.

Room Tip: Ask explicitly for see view!

We have just returned from staying at this hotel. I have stayed in many hotels, some of which were more luxurious than this. But this hotel is so friendly and accommodating that it is one of the nicest places i've stayed, in 37 years of traveling. Yes perhaps the pool area is dated, but the staff were fabulous and so friendly, this, in my opinion, makes the difference between an 'ok stay' and a 'great stay'. I was traveling with a 7 month old baby and the staff did everything possible to make things easier for me. The rooms were appealing, spotless and the beds very comfortable. The only thing I would say is the food in the evening wasn't great but it was acceptable. I will definitely be staying there again.

Stayed at Sol Los Fenicios hotel in La Herradura beginning of October. The hotel is in a lovely position overlooking the Mediterranean, it is an easy walk along the front to bars and restaurants, and very quiet, at least in October! The staff were, as many others have said, extremely pleasant and helpful. The bus stops outside the hotel to get to Almunecar but it is not very frequent, 10.30. 12.30. 16.30 and 19.00, this is the time the bus leaves Almunecar, so it arrives at the hotel about 15 mins later. We didnt make use of the hotel pool, which is at the top of the hotel, but lots of other guests did so as the weather was fantastic. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a balcony with side view of the sea, the front rooms have full sea views.
