Reviewed 8 October 2013

We stayed here in September just a few weeks after the refurb. If there were any hiccups they've been sorted as this was a very well-run gaff.
The room, well we did upgrade and it was worth it (cost about 100 euros a week) We had a massive room and a wrap around balcony with sea views.
Staff are well-trained and very helpful and friendly. That includes the management, front desk, cleaners, bar staff, restaurant staff, the lot of 'em.
Food was superb. lots of it, well-cooked and a big variety.
The entertainment. Bit naff but what do you expect, Andrew Lloyd Weber musicals and a guest appearance by Beyoncé?
Pool area, couldn't ask for more.
Drinks were a bit pricy apart from the odd happy hour.
If we go back to Costa del Sol we'll stay here, that's for sure.

We have been going to this hotel for years and after reading some of the reviews wondered
what to expect. The staff as usual are brilliant and pleasant, the food was much better than
before and the selection is great. If people cannot find something to eat from the wide range on offer then they must have wonderful menu's at home. The rooms have been restyled and are very comfortable, with large beds and coffee and tea making facilities. The entertainment was as usual a mixture, to get better you would have to pay a lot extra. There are more than enough sun beds for everyone.

Cannot wait to go back again

Room Tip: High rooms overlooking pool get sun in the morning. The other side of hotel gets sun all afternoon...

We had a recent stay at this hotel and despite recent isolated poor reviews this hotel is faultless.
The staff are friendly and helpful, the food excellent with a lovely choice and the addition of a night in the a la carte which was a lovely way to end the holiday.
The rooms are spotless and spacious we were on the 6th floor with a lovely side sea view- we had considered prior to arrival an upgrade however this wasn't needed.We have stayed in some lovely hotels across the world and cruised and this hotel can definitely hold it's own. Would recommend

Room Tip: High floor

we returned to this hotel for the third time knowing it had been refurbished and weren't dissapointed. The staff as always were pleasant and friendly and tne restaurant has a new look. (Check out the tapas selection) yum.

The bathrooms are much better with new showers and our bed was gigantic!

We were blessed with great weather and even managed to meet up with some friends whilst out there.

Will return again.

Room Tip: Request a room on the upper floors.

we were shocked to be robbed before we reached our room, pick pockets followed us into the lift and took our money. The police didn't do anything they didn't come to the hotel to see the CCTV ,our thomson rep took use to the police station to make a statement for the insurance claim,she was a great help,and the hotel gave use back the safe money!!we didn't see the hotel manager may be he didn't think it warranted an apology from the hotel.the rest of the hotel was lovely,such a shame not to feel safe there.

Room Tip: Be very aware of people around you, they are not always as nice as you!!
