Our room, view, service was really good here. The internet was dodgy, as is the case with most hotels in Southern Spain.
It is not evident that breakfast can be had in the room; to date I am unaware, though this would have been ideal, as we had a lovely balcony and view, and do not eat breakfast - just coffee.
But the information services, though good, are not complete, and the reception does everything. Need a towel for the beach, reception, return the towel, reception, checkout/in reception. So you queue quite a bit.
The room had air conditioning, but it was not on as the weather was not hot enough. Trouble is, one had to close the window, so the air was very hot in the room. Finally we opted for opening the balcony door and let the sun wake us...
Breakfast is really well organized . Better be, the turnover over 500 people a morning. So it is far from relaxing. (that-s why it would have been nice to know if my coffee could have been had in the room...).
Finally, what's with the elevators? 8 floors, I believe, but the elevators are tiny, so people wait, and wait for an elevator that arrives full.
Thank goodness I am fit for stairs....
The staff were excellent and well, the POOL, to die for. Really beautiful.
Value for money was good when one considers the gorgeous view.
