ILUNION Hacienda del Sol
Ranked #8 of 27 Hotels in Mijas
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I organized my wedding in the Hacienda Puerta del Sol.
It has been an incredible experience: the place is great, with a beautiful swimming pool, a nice terrace, and a great room to organize parties.
The all setting is ideal to enjoy Andalucia's warm spring while socializing by the pool, by the terraces...
The staff and especially Jose Antonio Avila, dGM, have been of great support to organize our wedding, not only in the hotel itself, but also by organizing some tours in the surroundings.
Our guests from USA, from Hong Kong, and from all over Europe all fell in love with the place, loved the service and the welcoming ambiance, and want us to organize again another such event!
And the price are also very reasonable!

Room Tip: all rooms are quiet, but the view over the pool is really nice. The view on the hills on the right...

Well we didn't actually get to the village as sadly we had just a one-night stay here. We arrived in time to see the sunset over the distant mountains and sat on the terrace with a drink. We were with a coach party but unlike some venues where a "battery-hen farming" principle of pushing us all together is followed we were treated as individuals. The Hotel is in traditional Spanish style with wonderful views, a large pool and loads of outdoor seating. As previously mentioned the only real downside was the awful orange juice provided with the breakfast-what a shame.

Room Tip: anywhere above floor level if you aren't into swimming.

We recently stayed 5 nights at this hotel and were very impressed with the service.
When we checked in we were offered choice of a twin or double room The room over looked the pool and was clean.
The gardens and pool area were well kept and very clean. There were plenty of sunbeds available at anytime of day.
Unfortunately, whilst out sight seeing, our hire car was broken into and items were stolen. The hotel management and staff were excellent in helping us deal with the ordeal and made it less stressful. The manager allowed use of their computer, staff to contact the car rental company and to accompany us to the police station. An extremely helpful receptionist called Johnathan acted as our translator at the police station.
The hotel is very clean and has wonderful views.
The food was adequate, however we would recommend eating early when the food is hot and fresh.
The location is not close to amenities so a hire car is recommended, which the hotel provides free parking.
The hotel has a grand piano and an organ in the bar area which are not used. It would have been nice to hear someone play them after the evening meal as it would have created a pleasant atmosphere.
We would recommend this hotel as a relaxing and quiet retreat.

My husband and I chose this hotel for our 25th anniversary (we are mid 40's). The hotel was nice and clean and most of the staff were friendly. On our booking form we asked for food to be available as we knew we would arrive after the restaurant closed and a double room. When we arrived we were given a twin room and was told that there was a vending machine if we wanted to purchase food :-(. The room we was given was on the third floor which was great but two rooms away from the lift which was extremely noisy with the doors banging from about 6am every morning. We stayed half board we couldn't fault the choice for breakfast from fruit,cereals,cheeses,meats and full English on offer with unlimited teas,coffees and fruit juices however the evening meal was disappointing with only a limited choice of a pasta dish,rice dish, and three selections of meat.
The hotel is definitely aimed at the older clientele with its mellow music,no entertainment we were clearly the youngest people there most I would say were 60+ we did stand out like sore thumbs. We asked the staff if it was usually older people that used the hotel they said yes .We normally like to go for a walk after our evening meal but there was no where to walk the closest outside bars would be Mijas(bus ride away) or Fuengirola also a bus ride away.

We first visited the Hacienda Puerto del Sol last year with Rivera Travel and were so impressed with the hotel that we booked for a week this April. We were not disappointed and spent an enjoyable seven days. Several of our fellow guests had stayed previously and for some it was an annual event. On arrival we were given a warm welcome despite the fact that that our room had not been payed for by On The Beach who we had booked through.We were given the choice of two rooms in case we wanted a quiet room out of the way. We settled for the one with a balcony and an excellent sea-view.It overlooked the amazing swimming pool were you could swim or just relax on a sunbed with a good book.The manager later informed us that payment of our room had eventually been sorted out. OK the staff were a little overstretched at times, especially when large groups arrived for a one night's stay, but overall the service was excellent. All the staff were friendly and very professional, especially the bar staff who made the most impressive Sangria we had sampled. On the Riviera trip the previous year we and several others voted it the best we had. No day was complete without a litre jug of Sangria and a chat with fellow guests in the comfort of the spacious lounge. Bus stops outside the hotel allow you to travel up to Mijas or down to Fuengirola were you can catch trains to numerous locations, such as Malaga or Benalmadena. Mijas is larger than you imagine and is well worth a couple of visits. The hotel is one that we would definitely visit again

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking down the terrace towards the sea

Luckily, we were only staying for one night or we would have asked to move rooms. We were allocated a poolside room with no privacy whatsoever and bars on the windows which added to an already gloomy outlook. We would have been much happier with one of the rooms shown on their website!

Nice hotel, room and situation. The lunch time bar/ terrace area was served by too few waiters, it became chaotic and did not give a relaxed lunch. Part of Riviera travel tour. Easy to get up into village by public transport.
