We stayed at this resort at the end of April 2007, as part of a promotion for Club la Costa (CLC) resorts. This was our prelude week that we were offered as a 'trial run', to see if it suited our needs and satisfaction.
We were not disappointed. CLC arranged to pick us up at the airport and bring us to their resort, and upon arrival we were taken to reception, and allocated our apartment - no hassle at all. Then us and our bags were loaded onto a buggy and were taken right to our door. The CLC assistant took our bags right to the door as well, then he went on to explain how the apartment alarm system worked as well as other things that the apartment had to offer.
The apartment was great, it had more than the average self catering resort, safe, satellite TV, DVD player, stereo, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave.... it had an en-suite bedroom, as well as another bathroom off the dining area. It even had a jacuzzi on the veranda!
We were over the moon with the place - it was much better than we had expected.
Because this was a prelude holiday we were expected to go to a breakfast meeting with a CLC rep, who then took us around the large resort, showed us the types of apartments (all of them are a very high standard) and then it was down to them trying to sell us the points to join their vacation club.
This was a longish day, but we were wined and dined, and did end up signing up to some points (holidays for life!).
The resort has 6 restaurants/bars, loads of pools (some not heated), gorgeous landscaping, kids club (and adults), and it even has a 'train' that transports you around the resort free of charge! Just find a stop and it will be along in a few minutes... The train is a necessity as the resort is built on a hillside (as most things are in Costa Del Sol) and you need it to save your legs. For this reason I wouldn't really recommend this resort to people with mobility problems.
We ate at three of the restaurants within the week we were there and they were all lovely, you could even order take out from one and it would be delivered to your apartment!
The resort offered trips away to loads of locations, including Gibraltar and Morocco! We did the Gib day and it was great.
Overall we had an excellent stay, one or two niggles, mainly to do with over exuberant upstairs neighbours in their jacuzzi, spilling it all over our veranda. But the place was spotlessly clean, there was always someone around if you needed some help, there are littel stores to pick up supplies, but we were given a small welcome pack of bread, butter, milk, coffee, tea and eggs when we arrived at the apartment, so it kept you going till you could get to a shop.
We were so impressed with this place that we are returning in September with my parents, and are really looking forward to it.
