We stayed for a week 1st night wednesday.This was good because we had spanish lads footy team Sat and Sun.Well 3 squads,who were loud and lively just as you would expect.This added to the couple of hundred people who congregate opposite the hotel on Sat night.So not much sleep and the recycle bins are emptied early am to wake you up just as you finally get to sleep.Thats my only moan,but the lads really enjoyed the midnight swim which proved the only entertainment in the hotel,and we saw that coz we had a room on 4th floor overlooking beach.Yea swimming in the sea!
FOOD....Very nice choice.Fish every night which we loved,and a choice of pork or chicken and various other spanish normals.Salad's but not many vedgetables.Chips.Fairly good English Bfast and a good cont'tal bfast.Fruit and cakes morning and evening.
Loaction....right on main strip with massive choice of bars and retraunts.Shingle beach over road becoming a bit sandier either direction.Supermarket 50m,bigger one up next to station 300m.
Room...good clean ,facing sea,balcony.Very noisey week end,fine midweek.Shower and bath,with hairdryer.3 Lifts to rooms.Cleaned daily.
Pool...on the roof which would be 11th floor.The lift only goes up to 8th and then 49 steps!I counted them.The pool is round about 10m across,clean and about 5ft deep.Fantastic views all round.When it gets breezy the parasols try to escape over the rail so tie them on!30ish sunbeds with nice foam cushions.Pool opens at 10 am so no reserving beds,but we always got a choice any time of day.No shade so all get full sun,whey!Would go here again,but only as a cheap deal.
Transfers....we transf by train.First time we have done this but brill.Get off plane,go thru arrivals and follow signs for train(there is an info desk if unsure)At station go to machine press English follow instructions destination Fuengirolla.We got singles 5euro's.Trains every 20 mins so no rush if you miss one.Takes half hour.Exit train station via escalator,take road off the fountain roundabout that goes to sea front(any one will tell you where the sea is).At sea front hotel is on the right 20m.Total walk 300m/5 mins.It is flat footpath and if you got wheels on your case not much effort.Dont pay £40 transf,do it your self £8.Then buy Sangria with the £32 you saved :)
