We stayed at this All Inclusive Hotel with family (4 adults, 3 children). We had a fantastic holiday. First impressions on arrival were great, the hotel is spotlessley clean and the reception area is huge and is really impressive with a forest theme. Our rooms were next door to each other which was perfect. The rooms were brilliant, clean, loads of space, very modern and well decorated.
The restaraunt was fab. Lots of choice of foods, plenty of healthy options, lots of variety. The staff at the Hotel were extremely friendly and very helpful with families. We definately felt welcome.
On a couple of negative notes, we were disappointed with the size of the pool. It was far too small for the size of the hotel. It was always crowded and you couldn't move. No chance of any swimming. It was a fight for some space to play with the kids in there. We also only got sunloungers twice out of 5 days. 3 days we had to sit on the snack bar chairs for the day, this is unacceptable, especially when paying combined £4500 for a week away, you expect to get sunloungers round the pool.
The hotel is a compamy of 4 hotels in the area and all can use the beach club just a 5 minute walk away. This is great for a day out, we went there on 2 days and had a great time. Highly recommended. Loads of pools, ring slides for the kids and great food.
The Hotel is quite isolated and too far to walk to Benalmadena or Fuengirola. Its a 10 minute taxi ride. This meant it felt like we were stuck in one place for the holiday.That's great for some people but we like to check out the local towns, or have a nice walk in the evening.
This is definately a pool holiday as the beach is not really easy to get to or easy access.
Overall we had a great time and were glad we went, just the pool size let it down a bit. other than that we would have rated it 5*
