Stayed 10 days based at this hotel whilst re-visiting Almeria for the first time in 20+ years. Most of the coast has developed into the high rise, over built disasters of the majority of the Costas, but Las Negras and Capo de Gato, thanks to national parks status, is little changed.
Many reviewers complained of the hotel being hard to find. My advice, ignore sat nav, slow down, use your eyes. The hotel is of a striking modern appearance as per photos, easy to see from main road.
Fast check in, friendly and efficient. Our room, like others, very modern "bauhaus meets Ikea". Very white and straight lines. Comfortable bed, good pillows, plenty of storage with bathroom behind ceiling to floor sliding door. A little unusual in layout, but as with all areas of this hotel, very clean.
We stayed on half board plan and pleased we did, because breakfast was worthy of any top hotel with its array of fresh juices and fruits, choice of cold meats and cheeses, with many different pastries and cereals, all of top quality. Evening meal, again, was well prepeared, using quality products and cooked by a chef who takes pride in his work.
Staying in March, outside pools were drained and being repaired. One would expect to use the indoor pool that is listed in the facilities and is usual in a four star hotel of this quality. But it is in a spar, run separately from the hotel, and the charge per person is 25 euros per entry. This is not acceptable for a quality hotel, suggest management amends this.
The usual question, would we stay again, no, unless the indoor pool is part of the hotel.
