We stayed elsewhere however trusted the reviews that the spa and restaurant are high class and went to experience a relaxing evening with spa, massages, treatments and a gourmet meal.
I am not sure if it was our previous experiences worldwide and skewed reality... or just a Spanish level of 5* but we got very disappointed.
Location is lovely, no doubt & The water/pool area is nice.
SPA employees did not speak one word of English, did not explain anything at all about the treatments, steps, procedure, did not ask for any preferences, etc etc. They did their standard thing (quite below average, we thought - and we were 5 ladies and tried 4 treatments/massages) and off we went. Since we did not stay in the hotel, the changing room was about 2sqm room with a bench... funny, we thought. To go to bathroom - you need to go to the pool area... hmm.
And now the restaurant. For a dinner for 5 people (incl 1 bottle of local wine) we paid 300Eur. It was very far from 5* restaurant although the setting is nice and service pleasant (the younger waitresses not very well trained.. but it was understandable they were there for their language skills - some English - yay!!). We all truly enjoyed all our desserts, wine and coffee however the starters and main courses were ranging from good to... "I better leave it on plate".
Again, possibly we were unlucky, possibly, it was our experience in variety of other 5* establishments that left us wishing for a better value for price... But one thing is for sure - SPA personnel need some basic English training asap....
