A good place for a family holiday, we had the all inclusive option and there was plenty of food and drink options but the larger was a bit bland.

Entertainment in the hotel was great. The staff work hard and don't miss out on the water bridge (it is not only for kids). I liked the way activities were separated for adults and kids.

The downside is that it is a bus or taxi trip to stuff. There is a water park on the neighbour hotel but it wasclosed in April. Also the shuttle bus finished at 6 which is a pity

The staff were faultless always welcoming and helpful. They even helped me plan a separate independent trip to Granada.

If you are looking for authentic Spain go to Granada but R&R by the pool with the family this works well.

Totally misleading in the brochure. Id put it as 3* at its best. Hotel next door is polynesia and a 4*+ and way better by far, no comparison! Will defo not be going back to this hotel!!! The beach club photo is of the pirate ship, not even based in this hotel but it is a short shuttle ride to get to it.

hotel was lovely .up a bit of a bank but not a problem as free shuttle up and down every 5-10 mins.
food was all ok i have 2 children aged 8 -4 so sometimes hard to please but could not fault it at all.free water park to use .lovely rooms.entertainment could of been abit better but start of the season so think it will get better.pool area snack bar all great for kids etc.as other reviews yes a little bit out of main town but not a problem.bus for 4 was only 6 euros and take about 10mins eitherway benalmadena/torremolinos and fuengirola.

now for the badish bit,
AT BOTTOM OF HILL WHEN YOU GET OFF THE BUS AS YOU WALK OUT OF THE GATES THERE ARE TIMESHARE PEOPLE .BE VERY CAREFUL AS SHE/HE SAY IT IS NOT TIMESHARE WHEN IT IS. IF OFFERED A FREE TAXI TO FUENGIROLA DONT DO IT THIS TAKES UP 3 HRS OF YOUR HOLIDAY.
I FELL FOR THIS AND 3 OTHER FAMILYS I SPOKE TO GOT CAUGHT OUT(NONE OF US SIGNED ANYTHING BUT THE SALES TEAM ARE VERY VERY PUSHY) BEWARE OF(CLC WORLD)

Yes there is a hill.....but there is also a shuttle bus up to the top until 1800 hours! The location is not ideal but there are bus stops at the bottom of the hill to everywhere! The food was greasy at times, but the salads etc were good and fresh, just the Spanish way. This holiday is good value for money. It is clean, and tidy. The best thing was the entertainment and games for adults and children. Th am you to Daniel, Jazmine and Letti who worked so hard, and ran the kids club too. This hotel is the smaller one of the complex so you feel a little let down after seeing the Polynesia..but it is a little gem and the staff work so hard and are hospitable at all times. We've met some lovely friends, nice cliental and all the children bonded very well too. Great for families.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor due to acoustics from foyer

Just got back from a week away. Facilities good, children loved the pool and the water park though were disappointed that the water slides were closed until mid april after we left. The older teenagers in our group were unimpressed with the buffet food on an evening so instead ate at the pool bar. The hill everyone is complaining about is really ok! takes 5 mins or there is a free bus but my littler ones 5 and 7 ran up and down no problem! Only thing I would advise is only go if you're prepared to eat out which is a 10 min drive or all inclusive as the people who were self catering were spending a fortune! Gibraltar is an hours drive away, advice is to park in Spain walk over the border, go to market square and hire a taxi to take you around,100 for 7 of us, definite value for money, kids loved the monkeys, caves, views etc an added bonus.
