“accommodating a few guests at the expense of others”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

Hotel itself is quite nice. Staff is generally friendly & helpful, but be prepared to remember your Spanish as many do not speak English well, though they will nod and say 'OK' when you speak to them.

One thing that suprised me was absence of free water in rooms. Only two small bottles in the fridge at EUR4 each. And hotel restaurant refused to sell me a bigger 1L bottles to take away, offering only same 0.3L bottles instead.

The biggest disappointment, however, was lack of good night sleep: apparently the hotel authorised a party for some of its guests, featuring heavy drinking and kilowatt speakers with Eastern European music. When it continued after 2AM, I called the reception and asked when this debauch would stop. To my surprise, a receptionist said it would go for another hour, until 3AM. And it did :-(

It is sad that the hotel management decided to entertain a few guests at the expense of many others. I am unlikely to choose this hotel, and probably the hotel chain, again for my travels.

Room Tip: Hotel is far away from anything, and taxi to the city costs EUR18. Try to go with a beach shuttle in...

Fantastic resort for golfer s and non golfers alike. Rooms were spacious and very clean. The resort was lovely to elk around in. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was enjoyable, wide range to choose from. My only gripe would be that they don't provide kettle in your room.

Beautiful location off the beaten track. Great space foe children to run around. Breakfast was buffet style but unfortunately did note have any gluten free products. Lunch in the terrace bar was good and very relaxing watching all the golf ears down below.
Dinner again was buffet style - very limited for gluten free diet and also repetitive.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 513 and it was excellent for a couple and young child - near the pool and faciliti...

The hotel is a bit off the way. Checkin was smooth but maybe as we were part of a very big group. The room was spacious and excellent view of the golf course. The overall ambience is nice and relaxed. Big grounds and golf courses add to the view.

The pools are ok. well mantained. Cleanliness overall is quite good. They do know how to manage large groups quite well.

Food is good but repetitive, they do not have varieties on their buffets. The service though at meal times was exemplary, attentive and ever present, which is a surprise as compared to other european hotels. Bar is average.

Nothing much to do if you are not a die hard golf fanatic, but nearby are good places for visiting.

Beautiful location and rooms very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good but not exceptional. Why breakfast is only available from 7.30 when there are so many golfers keen to start early is nonsensical. We enjoyed the terrace bar but struggled to find seats not covered in bird poo and the bar shut at 8 on the dot every evening. The bar offers stunning views and we preferred it to the bar by the reception area. We were at the hotel during the First Ashes Test and we had to drive to Sotogrande Marina as the hotel has no Sky Sports despite having many UK guests who enjoy a variety of sports. The 18 euro daily charge to use any of the Spa facilities seems unreasonable in a 4 star hotel.
We enjoyed our 10 day stay but feel that much of the organisation of the hotel is for the staff 's convenience not for the guests. No questionnaire was available when we left - don't think they are interested in improving!

We have stayed at this Hotel many times in the past and have generally had a good experience. We had booked again for July and although our booking was confirmed the Hotel then cancelled it just a few days before we were due to fly out. We established that they had accepted an alternative large corporate group booking as this was no doubt more lucrative deal than the one agreed with those of us booked for golf. The last minute accommodation we had to find as an alternative was not of the same standard so in summary a nice resort but with shoddy customer service and certainly no customer loyalty.

One of my best golf experiences of the year, was in Sotogrande, Cádiz. I stayed in the NH Almenara, a beatiful resort with excellent service. My room was facing the golf course, very comfortable and large enough to store golf bags, and stuff for two kids. Breakfast was a bit scarce, but service was excellent during my whole stay. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: facing the golf course!
