“Beautiful spot for a good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

The views are lovely from this neat and clean hotel though sadly we did not have a sea view from our room. Apart from that, the room was good; beds comfortable; plenty of space and good bathroom. The bar was great, very friendly service. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and pleasant. Food was fine, buffet style so you could choose what and how much you wanted. Appreciated the bus service into Almunecar town hourly for only 1 euro - we used it a lot. Very pleasant walk into town otherwise along the seafront or beach in parts. Comfortable and relaxing stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea room, they have balconies too, otherwise you are looking at the back wall

This hotel was very modern and as advertised. We had a junior suite with a sea view which was fantastic, the balcony was small but served the purpose. We could hear the sea from our room lapping against the beach The beach is black sand and gravel but you can still sunbath. The hotel is based in Cotobro. The nearest shopping center and restaurants were in Almunecar which was a nice walk from the hotel. There is a bus service for one euro right outside the hotel as-well. If you hire a car parking is fifteen euro a day at the hotel. There are no hot drinks facilities in the rooms - suggest you take a travel kettle.
Food was very good and the staff made sure it was always topped up. Staff were friendly but spoke very little English - we still managed to communicate. We were the only English couple in the hotel, mostly Spanish. There were only three sunbeds around the pool area as not much room and in the shade until later in the day. A quiet relaxing holiday if that what you looking for.

Room Tip: Request a room with a sea view - a junior suite

This hotel has only been open for a few months, and is definately the nicest looking place in the area. We prepaid through Expedia and were extremely disappointed to find the hotel had a full board special that was 2/3 the rate we paid that didn't include any meals. The young lady at the front desk would do nothing for us to adjust the rate. We felt she could have at least compted the meals for us. Meals were 18 Euro per person for a small buffet for lunch and dinner and 5 Euro per person for breakfast., although they tried to charge us 12 Euro each for breakfast. The other annoyances were the safe being locked already when we got to the room. The front desk clerk told us we had to wait over an hour until another person came on to help us. Most rooms have a balcony overlooking the water , but only the 1st and 4th floor have chairs! Since we were on the 3rd we had to beg for one chair and then used the room's desk chair. There is only one restaurant nearby that is extremely expensive. The Almunecar restaurants are about a 2km walk and are all pretty yucky and very crowded. Parking is 9 euro per day and there is very limited free parking, so expect to pay. The hotel has lounge chairs on the beach , but we were surprised to be charged 4 euros each per day for them! Internet is available at a 2 euro charge per hour. Hallways also smelled of cigarette smoke, and we were in a non smoking room.If there was a next time, I would stay in Nerja where there are nicer restaurants that are more accessible.
