“what's that smell?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

So overpriced. On the surface the rooms looked , but we had to move our room 3 times because of a sewage stench. I explained countless times about the room and at one point standing at the desk the plumber or facilities manager came over to discuss it with the manager. Not knowing I speak fluent Spanish despite being one of the few American tourists in the area, I stood there as they discussed just moving me around because I was complaining and what did I want them to do, that's just the smell... No thanks

What a shame this hotel was spoilt by the poor quality of the beds - if you can't get a decent night's sleep the holiday is spoilt. Otherwise overall good, breakfast plentiful and in a great position by the front. No shopping nearby except touristy gift shops though.

Room Tip: Sleep on the sunbeds!

We'll you would think a email asking for availability and price was simple not here it isn't I was told to book on the Website it's the only way to book a suite or superior room! For some reason there was a problem and I couldn't so telephoned , told to email again. web page then worked but had security alert so sent yet another email. I was told to telephoned the Hotel ! We'll excuse me I've been trying for days . Given up and booked else where felt staff were unhelpful and quite rude?

At the moment sitting in the lobby after waiting 3 hours for our room have tried to check in 3 times rooms still being cleaned I am a travel agent and I have stayed at thousands of hotels all over the world and this is the worst hotel looks nice but as I have only seen the reception cannot comment on anything else, bar is shut only open in the evening only pool bar is open not really interested as dressed in travelling clothes will try again in 5 minutes have to queue each time looks like everybody is in the same boat
Bloody shambles

Nice amenities, great food, wonderful pool area and on the ocean besides. This hotel was extremely clean and offered the European charm I was hoping for. It had a reading area, nice bar and sitting/reading area with lots of natural light. Nightly intertainment. there was a tour area set up in the hotel and several times I saw it manned by a tour company representative. I would definately stay again.

Room Tip: Most had sea views but some had a direct sea view.

OK, I've stayed here a couple of times before, so I obviously like this hotel. Seriously, if this hotel was in a mafor European city it would cost you around €700 euros a night, with it's spacious rooms and beautiful huge marble reception areas. It's in a great position. Just walk out the back, past the pool, over the promenade and you're on the beach. No road to negotiate and a plethora of great tapas/seafood beach bars that shock you (in a positive way) everytime you receive the bill. La Carihuela simply has to be one of the most relaxing and cheapest places to spend a weekend away from it all. Wall to wall sunshine in April too and mid 20 degrees C. On this occasion, the missus and I had the added entertainment of a Salsa Week running consecutively to our stay. Whilst I admit this annoyed many of the other guests, it just added to the vibe for me. Salsa by the pool, salsa on the beach, salsa in the lobby. Not that we joined in, it was just hilarious to watch a group of mainly northern Europeans strutting their not so exceptional stuff. Loved the music and the inside gossip too. Anyway, I'll definitely stay there again, Salsa or no Salsa!

Room Tip: If you can, get a room on the newer eastern side. Both sides still good though.

Stayed here for five nights ready to go after one.
Reception unhelpful, as we were given a room overlooking the hotels service entrance I requested a move. With no reference to any lists I was told this was not possible, in spite of there being many unoccupied rooms.
Two single beds, rock hard we had requested a double.
Onto the restaurant, never had a hot meal always warm due to old fashioned Bain Maries .
The wine and drink prices suited a genuine four/five star hotel which this is not.

I have never made such a derogatory review, but cannot find a word in its faviour.

Room Tip: Don't go
