I have read some negative comments about Hotel Golf Almerimar and after a short stay there I was very impressed.
Well, when I say impressed, everything is relative. They claim to be 5 star and certainly most of the renovations give a 5 star impression, but you are not paying 5 star prices. Do not therefore expect a doorman or an excess of staff. My experience was that there were sufficient staff, most were very friendly and helpful and there was generally a very good atmosphere.
The rooms have been renovated to a high standard, but am I the only person who could not discover how the light switches work? Each switch had 11unmarked buttons. Reception told me they no longer had any printed instructions.
If choosing a room, those facing the road have sun on their covered balconies during the morning. Those facing the swimming pool and golf course will only have sun on their covered balconies in the evening. They will, however, see the magnificent sunsets. There are rooms on the top floor with open balconies.
The buffet breakfast and dinner offered a very good selection, with some daily changes, but after a few days you may decide you can only eat so many fresh (delicious) prawns or langoustines. There is an alternative restaurant serving much more adventurous food, but I did not try it.
Others have mentioned flies at the sister Almerimar hotel and this does appear to be a problem in Almerimar.
The hotel is offering some very tempting rates at the moment, so if you fancy a golfing holiday you could do far worse and golf widows will enjoy the spar, pool and gardens.
