We have been staying at Almemara every year, sometimes two or three times, since it opened; which we think was 15 years ago. And it never disappoints.
We play golf every other day and this time found the courses to be in first class condition. From the fairways to the greens and all the surrounding foliage it definitely gives the appearance of being cherished.
The hotel, as usual was faultless. Wonderful room with breathtaking views, fabulous breakfast with the most amazing buffet selection and of course great food at Vente Ocho on the terrace after golf.
We stayed for eight nights and ate in Gaia restaurant four times. There is a buffet selection for the starters and desert with a la carte for the main course. For the cost of only € 25 euros, which includes a glass of very nice wine, it is incredible value for money. The buffet selections are stunning with such a huge selection, which varies each evening, that we were totally spoilt for choice.
However the thing that makes Almenara so special,is the staff. As returning clients we are met with such a warm welcome that we are relaxed straight away. And after a long journey from England it is lovely to be served with a delicious chilled glass of home made lemonade at check in.
The concierge Manolo should be picked out for special mention - absolutely nothing is too much trouble and he is so warm and cheerful it is a delight to be looked after by him.. Also we should mention the other Manolo, the maître d at breakfast who we believe has been there from the beginning and is a master of making people feel well looked after in every way.
Without exception the staff in all areas of the hotel are warm, friendly and seem to want to ensure you have a great holiday.
Cannot recommend Almenara Hotel highly enough, particularly if you are looking for a high quality golf holiday in stunning surroundings.
Can't wait to go back again in September!
