“OK FOR GOLF”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This hotel is fine if you are going to play gold and will not be spending too much time there and plan to eat out. The rooms are a good size. we paid for the family suite of 2 rooms. It was ok. It was very hard to find staff members who spoke English so ordering room service for a family meal was difficult. The food is really awful. there is no drinks service etc by the pool. the outside restaurant staff are bad tempered, the food is barely adequate and it is expensive. The service is generally poor, however the conceierge are very helpful.

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!

Reviewed 24 February 2014

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!
