This was a second, 7 day, visit following a superb earlier stay (two weeks in August 2004). The hotel is still lovely in many ways: stylish Andalusian building, rooms very clean and comfortable, wonderful views from the lounge terrace, sheltered sunny pool area. However, since our first visit, the hotel has become a TRH group hotel and with negative results. Formally it seemed to be family owned and run - at least that was the impression. This time, staff seemed "disengaged" with guests; not unfriendly but not smiling and welcoming. Examples: a request for a parasol for a hot and sunny terrace was met with "No - not available!" Extra pillows took four requests. Breakfasts were OK to good (as in other reports, bacon and eggs "swimming" in oil but laying on napkins on plate soaked this up! Evening meals at hotel-buffet only- looked very limited so didn't try them. On previous DBB stay the meals had been wonderful - all freshly cooked. The outside pool bar and restaurant were not in use (perhaps because it was April) and this was a big miss.
However, would we stay at this hotel again? Yes because we liked the very quiet, stylish facilities and lovely setting. It would be too quiet for many people (as might the lovely village of Mijas) but it was a wonderful week for us. We got an excellent deal on hotel through Octopus (with Nectar points) so only paid £250 for 7 nights B&B - remarkable value! Good bus connections right at the hotel entrance enables easy visits to Benalmadena, Fuengirola and onwards.
There are plenty of good or great restaurants withing a very short walk. In Particular El Pueta (consistently excellent food with a very lively owner - Leo. We ate there on 4 evenings in a row (which is unusual for us) and would have had a fifth but they are closed on Thursdays. Fiesta was excellent on one night, OK the next. It may be better to give Olivars a miss: food OK or just OK and service...well it's the first time we have not left a tip!
