We stayed here in May for seven nights. Our room was huge and absolutely perfect. Anything you needed was never too much trouble, we asked for ice on three nights, and within minutes, we had an full ice bucket delivered to the room. All the rooms were clean and well maintained.
Breakfast was fantastic with plenty of choice, hot or cold, and healthy options too. We ate only once in the buffet restaurant and, the food was very good, with a good selection to choose from. The main course was cooked to order.
Although the hotel boasts of three restaurants, in fact, only two are ever open at any one time, and the El Cedino was very popular. It is only open Friday to Sunday and to get a reservation is very difficult, we tried to book for a place on Friday for Sunday but it was fully booked. Reservations not needed for the buffet.
My only criticism is the smoking. The hotel obeys EU laws regarding smoking inside, but has no thoughts of smoking outside, in so much it is allowed everywhere! Some mornings would have been nice to have breakfast outside on the terrace, but too many smokers made it impossible. I don't care if someone wants to give themselves lung cancer, but I don't want it. Our room balcony had only a wire grill as a partition between us and next door, and again, a smoker in the room next door came onto her balcony to pollute her lungs, and in the process almost polluted mine! Much better if there was a smoking area for thoses to kill themselves, and let the rest of us have our holiday in peace. (Smoking is a serious issue and I hate it with a passion!)
The only other suggestion I could make is perhaps trivial, but maybe management should think about introducing a "Please wait to be seated" system in the buffet restaurant for breakfast and dinner. It would save the confusion and embarrassment of sitting at someone elses table! Only minor and certainly didn't affect my stay.
