We've just returned from a five-night holiday booked through Voyage Prive and were very impressed with this hotel.
It's a short taxi drive from Malaga Airport and set in what feels like a gated community well away (thankfully) from Fuengirola proper.
The interior is very modern, with art installations dotted around without it feeling like a museum.
Our initial fear when we arrived was that it would be style over substance, but this definitely isn't the case. The service is excellent, the rooms are spotless and original in their design, and the infinity rooftop pool is a five-star experience.
We crashed out on the (very large and comfy) poolside beds from 11am until 7pm and only got up for a beer, G&T or a delicious smoothie-style drink. As part of our deal we also got a free bottle of Cava. Just great.
We also had a free circuit session in the spa, which is excellent. Massage jets for every possible muscle in various pools, plus swimming lanes, sauna and steam room. Again, really impressive facilities.
If we had to pick fault it would be with the food in the main dining hall, but even then we always found something decent to eat and the waiting staff were very good indeed. I'd go for fruit/cold cuts over the cooked breakfast... it was so-so. The coffee, however, was excellent.
I'd also give Fuengirola beachfront a wide berth. It's certainly seen better days and those high rise blocks they built in the 70s and 80s wouldn't look out of place in a warzone. Not our cup of tea at all. Stay in the reserve... it's a little haven.
We'd definitely consider another sunshine break here.
