“Everything We Wanted”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

We stayed in this hotel on two occasions last year, May 2013 and July 2013.
The May visit was for 5 nights. Our experience on that occasion impressed us so much that we booked our summer break,a week in July, in the same hotel.

The first, and most obvious advantage of the IPV Beatriz Palace is its location. The hotel is right on the beach; A door opens from the pool area onto the promonade, and a few metres from this is the ramp which connects you with the beach and its miles of golden sand. There are no roads to cross, no hunting for parking spaces, no stress, just a short stroll down to the sea. The hotel is also on the edge of Fuengirola, so it is away from the crowds and the excesses of the town centre, in a beautiful location overlooking the vast sweep of the beach and the mountains in the distance.

The hotel itself is nice, spacious and spotlessly clean, with lots of marble and wood. Reception staff are efficient, friendly, welcoming and helpful. All rooms have a view over the pool area and the beach beyond it. Pool area is quiet, clean and well looked after. The pool is an unusual circular design and quite deep. Breakfast has a good range of usual types of food and you can have your eggs cooked to order.The waiters bring you coffee and a jug of hot milk. We enjoyed the novelty of having breakfast at a table on the outdoor terrace in the gardens, listening to the sea just over the fence.

Our room, on both occasions, was a good size, with a nice bathroom and a balcony with a lovely view. Some reviewers complain about the walk into town, but don't let that put you off. The walk is really about 25 - 30 mins, right along the seafront all the way. We walked it in to town and back every night and actually enjoyed it. Yoy pass the old castle and cross the river on a new pedestrian bridge which is illuminated at night. The walk helps to sharpen your appitite and to burn off a few calories, and we all need a bit of exercise and fresh air. You also get to see how groups of local people organise parties on the beach, barbequeing sardines and celebrating life, which the Spanish people do so well.

There are, of course a few niggles; the spa looked nice, but we didn't use it as it is ridiculously expensive. Use of the spa should be inclusive for hotel residents. The evening entertainment seemed a bit lame, but not many people stayed around in the evening anyway. Ther is a huge shopping centre around the corner. You can easily walk to it if you follow the river. It has a mutiplex cinema and there are always films in english playing.

We like this hotel so much that we are actually planning to return for a third visit this year. It has everything we want.

A Well respected hotel that is very clean and tidy.we paid for half board and the only thing I would recommend is that you dine earlier rather than later.as it seems the staff like to get cleared up and get you gone! By taking the food off the hot plates and buffet tables half an hour before the restaurant stops serving. Which is rather uncomfortable when you feel you are been rushed out of the restaurant.

The Hotel was lovely, breakfast was excellent fantastic choice something for everyone. Easy to get a taxi into town around 9 euros. Efficient, friendly staff, and no waiting around when booking in and out. Had drinks in the Tapas bar and the Piano Bar, would say it was around average price. Spa was lovely, only thing was I found it difficult to get out of the jacuzzi due to walking problems maybe could do with some sort of handrail around it. The room was nice and big, with a lovely sea view from the balcony. Will be going to stay here again.

Hotel lovely, pool area nice, breakfast 1st class. Long walk to town, taxis in and out bit pricey average €9 each way. Drinks in hotel pricey at average €28 for 4 drinks. Our room was on the 4th floor which provided a lovely view of the beach. Spa area very nice, one tiny gripe is that you have to wear a bathing cap to enter the pool and jacuzzi. Only reason we would not return to hotel is the
location. Old part of Fuengirola is lovely and has a great atmosphere.

Hotel was ok but wouldnt say it was worth 4 stars. Our room was very tired looking.
The breakfast was a bit of a let down as not a great choice and the bread was not fresh it felt like it had been left out overnight.The bacon needed cooking properly.
Pool was freezing and could not believe that we had to pay for towels and the safety deposit box.
The brochure said short walk into Fuengirola which turned out to be about 30 minutes walk.... Not fantastic when you have young children with you.
Overall the stay was ok but think there are better places for the money!!!!

Room Tip: you need a room over looking the pool as we were later told all these have been re furbed.

Not impressed with this hotel at all. The location is not ideal as it is a15 to 20 minute walk to any decent bars or restaurants.
On one day we were there the pool bar was closed due to bad weather(it was glorious sunshine and 78 degrees) There was another bar in the reception area with a lovely terrace overlooking the pool and closed pool bar but this too was shut. A waiter pointed me to another bar where I could buy a drink and bring it to the terrace which I did. My wife and I decided we would have some lunch so I went back to this bar to order it but was told I would have to wait until it was ready and take it myself. This probably also meant setting up the table myself so we didn't bother and went elsewhere.
There was some serious noise in this hotel as a reunion of some health food firm was there at the same time. I am not sure what the health food was but it kept them till 4 in the morning and involved some furniture removal.
My last moan is when we came to settle up for our safe we were also presented with a minibar bill for 46 euros, considering I had even opened it when I looked at the price list. The receptionist did remove this from the bill but gave me impression that I was another guest trying it on.
We will be going back to Fuengirola, almost certainly to the Florida Spa but there is no way we will go back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Any room providing you are hard of hearing.
