After reading some of negative reports on trip adviser we were obviously apprehensive about what was in store for us, but we had no reason to worry as the hotel was great. I booked the hotel as a last minute mini break for my husband’s birthday. We went for the all-inclusive option, which was excellent value for money via Easyjet holidays. We arrived at the hotel 3 hours before check-in and were offered our room straight away.
Room – this was on the fourth floor, the room was spotless and large, with plenty of wardrobe space. The bathroom large with a good supply of toiletries. We also have a large balcony with views of the sea and street.
Food - The food was in abundance with a great selection of fish, meat, salads, pasta, rice, vegetables and desserts (the rice pudding was especially nice).
Drinks - were local brands but you could upgrade at a discounted price. The orange juice for breakfast was partially week but I worked out how improve it by added cava and having a bucks fizz!!
Location – on the beach, and close to shops, bars and restaurants. We had hired car and visited Marbella, Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Benalmadena & the beautiful small village of Mijas (which well worth a visit) You can take a cable ride up the mountains at Benalmadena for 13 euros (but not recommended if it is windy as we had a near death experience!!!)
Pool - can't comment on this as it was November and really in use.
