The hotel had a few cleanliness issues which needed to be addressed. Staff were polite and accomodating but I wouldn't choose to stay here again. The apartment was very spacious but needs renovating. Nice view of the sea.

I wouldn't stay again in winter. We had stayed twice before and enjoyed amenities like the pool restaurant, the little store, where one could purchase groceries and toiletries etc, Things are different in winter. The hotel is literally empty and consequently, the restaurant service is very, I mean very--I mean the same hamburger and pizza menu as the down the road tourist traps-- limited. Some days on weekend they had a wonderful buffet, but that happened two nights out of ten. Because the property is on a hill, a bit removed from the hotel zone, we had to take the bus and lug groceries from the supermarket, and because the restaurant was so limited we had to take a bus to Benalmedina or Torromolinos, unpleasant at night in the rain. There's an air of scarcity about the place. The apartment had two cups, two spoons, two knives, etc. consequently cooking and eating very restricted, no salt, no clean up dish soap, kitchen cloths, etc. no pepper, sugar, it had lots of toilet paper but one soap dispenser, no shampoo or shower soap. On the other hand, the people are fabulous, very helpful and professional. The apartments are older but lovely, marble floors, roomy, and immaculately clean. The view is the best! I would revisit but in other seasons, not winter.
Stayed 11 nights in Jan 2020
