Returned to this Hotel for 3 nights. Was there last year and loved it. This year, even better. Totally modernised throughout, rooms are stunning! Paid a small fee for superior room and it was well worth it. Fabulous front sea view, hydro massage bath, wine and water in room on arrival and fab big comfortable beds! Had my sisters with me this time and they cannot wait to go back. Both think its the nicest hotel they've stayed in in Spain. Balcony outside bar has lovely relaxing sofas where you enjoy drinks with stunning sea view. Adults only so totally relaxing. Can't wait to return!

Room Tip: All have min side sea view but if you prefer front sea view pay the small fee extra with Thomsons!

We have just returned from a 3 night break at this fantastic hotel. Would highly recommend! Staff so friendly and helpful. Location is excellent with breathtaking views over the harbour and sea , certainly worth the small supplement for a sea view room. Will definitely return to this hotel when we are holidaying without the kids :)

Well back again and what a lovely surprise arrived on the 3rd May just two days after re-opening if anyone wants to know anything about the hotel just ask and I'll get back to you. The rooms are just like the pictures on the hotels web site and it was nice to receive a complementary bottle of wine plus a
bottle of drinking water on arrival, there are fridges in all rooms which you can hire for 3 Euro a day if you want they will provide stock it with drinks but I'm not sure of the cost. I think it's all the same staff that they had before. They now have lovely large comfortable lounges on the sun terrace area and lots of sun lounges round the pool. The food in the restaurant is just as good if not better with more choice when it comes to desert plus they now have a tapas section.
If you would like me to get back to you while we're please send any question you might have to my Gmail account : newshampat@gmail.com

Room Tip: Room 703 is on the pool side Sun in the morning only but a lovely view of the marina

This hotel is in a good position by the beach and not far from the marina.If you prefare a holiday without children you will love this hotel as it is adults only.The food is excellent and it has a good pool with plenty of grass areas as well. Bus stop just outside the hotel to go to torremolinas or Marbella.

Are rebooking to go back in May 2013 now it has been refurbished we are keen to see what it looks like. The food has always been excellent so hope this continues. Have requested high floor overlooking the pool which we had last year so hope we have the same again. Hoping to see some of the same staff too as they were very nice and helpful.
