    No fridge for cool drink. Only Spanish TV. Both of which would have made stay more enjoyable.

    Mercedes and staff were always pleasant and helpful. Had no complaints there .

    There is nothing I would change, I would return to this hotel in a heartbeat.

    The views over the bay are spectacular, the food is exquisite but what really makes this hotel special is the staff. My Mother-in-Law broke her ankle at our original accomodation and Arrayanes Playa found us rooms very last minute and with very late check in. Mercedes and her team went over and above to help us and what could have been a disastrous holiday was made so much easier with their help. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Almunecar was fairly quiet mid June, but the pool and the beach provided welcome relief from the heat.

    The choice of breakfast items were a little limited. Some cereal or yoghurt would have been nice but we found a nice bar on the beach for our breakfasts so not a real problem. Residents have a nasty habit of slamming doors in the middle of the night but you get this anywhere.

    The restaurant was lovely and the food was the best value for money in the whole resort. Waiting staff extremely friendly and helpful. They even gave us directions to the local market and also told us what was the best Flamenco evening.

    The hotel pool was difficult to access and closed during the hottest part of the day. The balcony could not be used because of old air conditioning unit blowing hot air onto the balcony. The shelf unit in the bathroom was rusty. There were no tea/coffee making facilities or fridge in the room. The hotel is quite a distance from the town requiring a bus or taxi every time. The price was very high for the service provided and I discovered others had paid significantly less than me. There were other places to stay in the area with more amenities and lower prices - something I only discovered in whilst I was there.

    The Manager/Staff were Excellent - very friendly and helpful. I had booked room only but was given breakfast at no extra charge. The condition of the room was clean and comfortable but some of the furniture was old and dated - especially the shelf unit in the bathroom, which was rusty. The balcony was pleasant with a nice view but too hot too sit on as the air conditioning unit was on the balcony and blew hot air out onto the balcony.

    It was difficult to find. We didn't know which exit from Highway 340 to get down to the beach road. Of course, the next time will be easy!

    Right across from the beach was great! Just one flight up, or the elevator made going in and out of the room easy. Mercedes on the front desk is a wonderful hostess. Wonbderful sea-side chiringuitos for sardines and langostinos.

    The noise is excessive. Not just the regular street noise, but power tools early in the morning and the cleaning staff talking loudly in the hallway early.

    The front desk staff was so nice, very accommodating. The location is great and the pool is a nice touch!

    Nothing really. It is a bit further from the old center of Almuñecar but 20 - 25mins is not bad.

    Lovely views, nice balcony, quite spacious rooms, kind personnel. We were even allowed to take our bicycles up to the room.
