My visit to Hotel Marie Cristina began on the 3rd June and lasted until 13th June 2014.
Booking number 541.868.238
The caring, and warmth that is the nature of the people of la Cala del Moral was apparent even before my arrival. The correspondence between the hotel and myself in the lead up to my journey demonstrated a genuine interest in my welfare, to maximise my enjoyment, and to minimise problems that may occur.
My correspondence, particularly with Cristina Santos, was accurate efficient yet presented in a friendly reassuring way that gave me confidence in my decision to commit to the hotel and I began to look forward to my holiday.
No doubt others have booked holidays and accommodation, although looked forward to, have resulted in disappointment.
Cristina continued to correspond right up to the day of my departure from the UK, advising on travel to the hotel once in Malaga and offering to book taxis.
On my arrival I was greeted in a style that is the nature of the people of la Cala del Moral, and indeed that of Rincon de la Victoria as a region, friendly; warm; caring, patient, above all genuine.
The little bars and restaurants reflect the nature of the people, their culture and everything is very reasonable and real quality.
My room, for this single person, was large with shower and usual facilities, wardrobe and a double bed with bedside draws. There was a writing table and a chair also an easy chair.
My room had double French windows, and balcony which over looked the main street with the usual associated noises, but this added to the atmosphere of la Cala. When these doors where closed and the air-conditioning was switched on, the noise was not obvious. It was necessary to have the air con on as the temperature from 11 am was in the order of 34 degrees C.
Throughout my stay, if and when, I require assistance, or information the answers were provide in a way that I got the impression that the staff, were genuinely pleased they had been able help.
