“Very good hotel”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Florida spa from the 15th to 25th July. First impressions of hotel were very good. Hotel was in a great location near beach, harbour and restaurants; we asked for a sea view and got it at no extra cost. We stayed at the hotel on a half board basis
Food consisted of 3 fish dishes, 2 meat dishes and pasta dishes with nothing to complain about, Mariah the restaurant manager was friendly and helpful. The salad bar had a wide variety and breakfast fantastic selection. Entertainment at night was more for the 60+ range. Bar staff were fun and outgoing.
We used the spar on the last night and no complaints. Clean tidy and relaxing I recommend the spa circuit.
If I was to stay at hotel again it would be on a bed and breakfast basis as so many cheap and tasty restaurants at your door step.

Stayed July 2014, travelled with friends

Our first visit to this hotel and not disappointed. Situated overlooking the beach, marina and close to the town centre and top floor rooms have lovely views. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms comfy and clean. The food was plentiful and varied.
In my opinion the hotel caters for the "older type" of person - which suited us fine.

Will definitely return. To our holiday rep "Gary Connor", I say well done - top marks !!

Room Tip: Ask for sea view - floors 10, 11 and 12.

Lovely hotel, across the road from the beach and a good central location close to train and bus station. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Peaceful at the pool as there weren't many children. The only thing to let it down was the entertainment. We had about 3 or 4 excellent nights the rest was mediocre. Some nights the stars of the show were the bar staff who joined in and made it a party. This didn't detract from the whole holiday as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Would definitely make a return visit,

Could not fault the hotel at all. We asked for a top floor, with sea view, room and received it. Top floor overlooking the harbour, the beach and the road. We were able to sit on the balcony and watch the fishing boats come in and out, very restful. The food good and plenty to choose from.
Must say that we found all the staff very helpful and friendly and all quite young. The evening entertainment, although all singing, we found very enjoyable.
Would go back again, even though we are in our 80's.

Room Tip: Ask for a view looking out to see. Sun in the morning .

We (couple 20s) stayed here at Easter. We booked room only and ate out every night so can't comment on the food, but the hotel's location was great for seeing Fuengirola and getting onto the metro to travel to Málaga and other towns along the coast. It's so easy to hop on the metro at the airport, and so cheap, I really wouldn't bother with organising a transfer. A 10 minute easy walk to the hotel from the metro once you arrive in Fuengirola (the last stop on the line).

The room was clean and tidy and had a modern bathroom with a fantastic shoer. Great for after the beach! The staff were very helpful and arranged a late check out for us on our last day for around 30€. We used the spa once with our free voucher which was a nice way to spend a grey afternoon, but the spa itself was rather small- not the best. We wouldn't have paid to use it.

Entertainment was definitely for 60+, but there's so many bars and restaurants around you can easily leave the hotel! Don't let that put you off.

One thing, when we arrived they had no record of our booking (booked and prepaid through Expedia). Bit of a panic but luckily they had a room for us. If you also book through Expedia definitely contact the hotel in advance to check they have your booking.

We have stayed at this hotel on at least 4 or 5 occassions. The hotel is in a fantastic location and is clean and welcoming. The pool is quiet and exactly what you want for a lazy day, rest, or you can go to the pool side bar where the food and drinks are good. The bad and ugly side of this hotel is the restaurant, the food is down right dreadful, even the smell of the restaurant is off putting. The heat is far beyond comfortable and there is nothing that is remotely Spanish to eat, breakfast is no better the tea is tasteless, and the butter is pure hydrogenated fat, in fact anything apart from the Melon is tasteless and unappetising - if they could just sort the restaurant out the hotel would be the best in the area.
Go room only you can eat alot out in the area with what you save.

Room Tip: If you want the sun in your room most of the day go for the pool side or limited sea view. If you w...
