Overall pleased that we chose this hotel for our recent stay as we really made use of the facilities - we used the gym most mornings and sun bathed around the pool most afternoon ( rooftop pool is lovely but the terrace pool and grass bathing area a bit more relaxing)!
The location would be a problem if you didn't want to spend money on taxis - we tried to get the last little train down in the evening at 7pm and then either walk or hop on the train in to fuengirola/Los boliches. But your only way of getting back is taxi costing 10-15 euro.
Can't comment on the food in the hotel as we were room only but we did try Al Rolo and were really impressed - food was very tasty and presentation was gorgeous, also dining on the terrace as the sun sets is perfect. We also had a few brunches/ snacks in the sports club snack bar which is very reasonable.
My only criticism of the hotel design would be soundproofing wasn't thought about - the paddle tennis contingent like to talk very loudly in the corridor at 4am and we were woken up on several occasions! This is not your usual resort hotel and the staff behave accordingly, if you keep this in mind you shouldn't be disappointed.
