Just spent a week here- first impressions were very good, reception area and bedrooms were good. The Restaurant was OK - but not up to what I would class a 4* hotel to be. Our first full day we decided to sunbathe and swim. So much for not allowing 'towel bagging' of loungers!! All the ones on even surfaces around the pool area were taken by 9.15! We ended up on a slope on on the grassy area. Had to wait till after 10 till the spa opened to get towels (€10 each). We then moved to a flatter area- again on the grass, and, unknown to us next to the target shooting range! Boy was that our mistake! A fe hours later we decided to go for a swim - on return, my purse had gone from my bag! If the blond Spanish? female with the brother? and husband reads this she'll know who I'm talking about- hope you enjoyed your extra €140- but you could have made a better killing if you had taken my friend's purse- a lot more money AND credit cards!!
We informed the Reception, but their attitude was awful, the guy said we could go to the police, handed me a form to complete, saying you MIGHT get someone who speaks Engliish! The police station was miles away so we decided to just put it down to experience and get on with our holiday- although we had fun staring at the blond dame and making her feel uncomfortable!(the receptionist just wasn't interested in the least)
Next -as we were not on all inclusive, at lunch time we went for a snack at the pool bar, asked for the menu, didn't have one, the waiter said- toastie, pizza or burger- that was it, we chose a toast which duly arrived, melted onto a paper serviette on a paper plate!
The evening entertainment was laughable - we mostly avoided it as it was football at one end and the entertainment at the other, with about a hundred screaming kids all running about up to and past midnight! My friend and I had come for some peace and quite with no children or grandchildren- to this! We normally go to 4* hotels in Torremolinos -we'll be sticking to that in future!
