Hotel tip: Quiet rooms are not on the pool side.
The rooms are a good size although they would probably be a bit cramped with 3 in, they do have some rooms with 2 adjoining rooms. The whole hotel was very clean, the pool area was washed down every morning and there are some lovely gardens with plenty of sunbeds.
The entertainment team were very enthusiastic even though some of the entertainment was a bit dodgy!! The food was very similar to any other 3 star Spanish hotel that we have stayed in, plenty of salads breads etc and several main dishes although we weren’t over impressed with the snacks available in the AI package, it was basically bread meat and cheese or occasionally hotdogs if you were quick enough, not really enough to cover if you missed the main meal.
The drinks measures were very generous but the bar service when we were there was dreadful sometimes you had to queue for 15 mins. There is a 2 drinks per person rule and when we were there some Spanish families arrived and just started going straight to the front, the bar staff knew but let them get away with it and served them anyway.
I know the Spanish don’t usually queue but if they make all the other nationalities queue then so should they. There was only 2 barmen and they tended to serve you without speaking or even looking at you we have heard that there are now more staff so hopefully this shouldn’t be too bad now.
While there we booked trips to Gibraltar and Morocco with a company called Flandiers next to Fuengirola bus station and both trips were very enjoyable.
Overall a good clean 3 star hotel.
The hotel staff were pleasant, apart from a young man on reception, the hotel was quite clean, and room service was also quite good.
The shop by the pool is to us, a complete waste of time, if you wanted a newspaper, you had to book it every day, hence no paper on the first day, and it was geared up for expensive and nasty souvenirs, water was dear there too, tip, if you want water, by the pool area there is a drinking fountain, fill your bottle there.
much as this one and paid more.The Staff were friendly
and courtious the rooms were cleaned every day the towels were changed everytime you left them in the bath,the entertainment was great.The gardens were great
for a quiet sunbathe,in fact everything was great and we`ell be back as soon as possible.

Do go to Gibraltar its fab, but book with the hotel we did the Gibraltar dolphins and shopping and were taken to Gibraltar shown where the shops were and told to meet the rep later who then took us to the harbour, do the basic shopping and when you get there add the caves and dolphins on your own as Thomas Cook charged 22Euros more.

The entertainment was quite good and the entertainment worked really hard to get everyone to enjoy themselves. The drinks were the locally brewed concotions but the mixers were a bit more palatable than other hotels i have been in. The good bit was being able to order 4 drinks at a time so could get a beer and a spirit for both of us.
As well as the pool area for sun worshipping there are lovely gardens which were quieter and did not have the usual music blaring.
The hotel location is good if you want a quiet break right on a lovely beach but it is a bit of a walk to Fuengirola to the hub of entertainment. The train station is only a 10 - 15minute walk and there is a bus stop right outside the hotel.
We will definately be back to this hotel but i would imaging that it would be a bit of a nightmare during the busy season when the schools are off.
It was good to know that the majority of people we spoke to have been at this hotel on several occasions which surely is the sign of a good deal.
