We stayed at the hotel as a couple for a long weekend as we attended a wedding nearby. The hotel looks very trendy with a big airy reception with many objects of modern art around. We arrived quite late and there was only one receptionist working and there were people queuing up behind us. I sent in a room request prior to my arrival which was honoured. The rooms seemed a little small and probably because the hotel tries to follow a mini imagistic design concept, the rooms almost appeared a little bare.
After out arrival we went to the in house tapas restaurant which had very attentive and friendly staff. The menu was all written on a chalk board and was very diverse. The food was absolutely brilliant and the total bill was very reasonable. In the morning I went to the in house gym which was one of the best hotel gyms I have been to. Subsequently I went there every single morning.
We also had breakfast included in our deal which came as a buffet in a very nice open space with a terrace included as well. I especially loved the omelette bar and the female chef who made very generous and delicious omelettes. The rest of the buffet was also very diverse and constantly restocked. The only criticism was the fact that plates weren't cleared from our table fast enough. It's a little pet hate of mine.
During the day we often spent our time by the roof top pool where you stunning views over the costa del sol. The cabanas there were also quite comfy and I could have easily spent all day there.
We only needed to vacate our room by noon, which was very handy, check out was very efficient as well.
The hotel was nowhere near any other hotels or restaurants/bars, but I quite preferred the detached feel to all the hassle you would get being close to a lot of amenities.
