Firstly, i do not consider the hotel to be 4star, 3star is a more realstic assessment.The food was passable (just) i never saw a menu or the whole week we were there.Quite a lot of the dishes were not labelled and the variety left much to be desired.
the hotel was very clean and the staff quite amiable.
the majority of guesta at the hotel were spanish pensioners so no problems getting a sunbed at either of the two pools.the hotel is situated right next to the train station on a fairly steep incline just above the main coast road.there were 4 bars of the english type in the immediate surrounding area and more bars a five minute walk down to the promenade.
the hotel had entertainment on every night, flamenco dancers, magicians, singers,and the dreaded bingo.
all the entertainment was aimed at the mainly elderly clientelle.
the hotel has 2 lifts but we never had any problems in that respect.
as i have said the food isnt cordon bleu but that wont stop me going there again.

Horrible decor and shabby old orange and yellow dralon couches. Food was very poor quality - breakfast really bad. Orange juice was like a cordial not fresh orange. Dinner over cooked and cold.
Room was reasonably clean but very dated decor. Outside quite nice with lots of green grass and sun beds. This is not a 4* star hotel. No choice of decent wine in bar - only one and that was like vinegar! Can't comment on entertainment as chose to go out each evening to eat and get some decent wine.
No brochure regarding hotel in the room. Most 4* hotels give you lots of information about the hotel.
The hotel is about 2oo yards from the beach up a steep hill. Lifts very inadequate - we were on 9th floor and had to wait for ages.

Very dissapointed with the hotel should not be 4*!
The views were great and the position was good.
The receptionist was miserable and the food was awful. Everything looked burnt and was very little choice we had chips every night and even they were cold most of the time. It's self service for your drinks which you may not mind in a 2 or 3 star but expected more. We only had 1 breakfast and it was cold and the fried eggs were like cardboard.
We had our little girl and I am pretty sure she was the only child in the hotel.
Entertainment is geared towards people over 50........glad we weren't staying for a week!

Evening meals were a little better but poor variety of choice. We are not fussy eaters so we managed O.K. but for this hotel to advertise itself as 4 star is a bit of a liberty. The staff are all extremely pleasant and friendly. T.V. in the room with BBC 1 and Sky news and CNN.
Two lifts serve this large hotel and broke down frequently, but were put right promptly. We were in this hotel in 2000 and 2002 and it was far better then, but as I feared it was taken over by Medhotels as was the Fuengirola Park and has gone downhill since. We won`t go there again.

We used the trains a lot next time we will go back there but will not use the travel agents we will get a cheap flight and train, book the hotel ourselves.
The food buffet style could not be faulted my wife who is very fussy still managed to find something for her, every day whilst I was there was different menu plus the usuals chips potatoes salads etc. A couple of times we booked early morning call and breakfast no problems.
The staff were polite and helpful.
The two pools was clean and plenty of sunbeds bear in mind it was October.
The hotel is located on a small hill I found it not too bad and I have a problem with my knees.
Mostly Spanish pensioners that week so entertainment was geared to them.
Can't wait to go back.
