An excellent place for our winter golf and relax. This area is a dream for all golfers.
I stay here 2th time and year by year is better and better. Service was perfect ,commodious room and in overal i can highly recommend.
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
ridiculous poor pool heating and pool area resulted in contracting heavy head cold. Breakfast bar was too crowded and not enough staff or coffee machines.
Buffet dinner was a scrum and tables too close together
Almenara is a friendly hotel. Great for golf with three challenging nine holes. The rooms are simple but comfortable built as individual units. The pool is ok but the room includes complimentary access to the beach club which is very pleasant.
Highly recommend this hotel from the very large and comfortable bedrooms rooms. The breakfast was excellent for choice and the buffet at night we had it three nights and it different every night with plenty to choose from, all the staff we met were very friendly from reception, cleaners, waitresses, bar staff. Overall I would give it 5 stars no problem, The golf course has three nine holes and all were very good, with very fast greens.Would recommend a buggy if it's windy very hilly at some points .
Staying in the hotel while writing this.
Hotel is fine, well situated and services are as my be expected, but two things need to be mentioned:
There is absolutely NO coffee or tea making facility in the room, which is a real shortcoming of a hotel of this statue. After our complaint we did get a watercooker, but it should simply not be necessary to complain about something so basic.
Also in spite of what one may expect there are NO complimentary bottles of water in the room. We find this really seriously bad!
On a ladies' golf week.
Location: In the hills near Sotogrande, surrounded by golf courses.
Rooms: decent size, pleasant colours, good lighting, nice bathroom. Wifi fine.
Food: definitely not enough variety in the evening. Dining room too small so cramped
Service: definitely not up to par. Reception staff impolite or downright rude. Were told to fetch own luggage from rooms when checking out. Taxi ordered to airport was too small, no help provided in order to resolve situation. Reception manager was completely out of his depth.
Golf: Three loops of 9 holes each, all very well designed.
Golf service: Caddymaster very friendly, competent and helpful.
Golf club service: Completely inadequate. Waited 50 minutes to receive a coffee.
Prices: Prices for golf trollies and snacks to take on golf course are excessive. This, coupled with poor service in the golf club restaurant, is inadequate and annoying.
Spa: daily charge of EUR 18 payable - did not bother
Will not return.
Comparisons should be made with nearby golf clubs (e.g. Alcaidesa) as regards bar prices and service. NH Alemnara could learn a thing or two from the staff there!
