    Minor issue could be that the room needed a repaint but didn't affect our stay.

    I have many friends who live in the area and try to visit them at least once a year. The hotel is privately owned by a local man and the staff take a pride in their work. There is a happy feeling about the hotel.

    The pool wa a bit small but it wasn't very warm at this time of year so the pool area wasn't busy.

    The rooms were a good size with a comfortable bed and very clean.The staff were very friendly. It was in a good location only about 10 -15 min walk to the town centre and a couple of mins walk to the beach.

    Coffee making facilites in the room would have been good, but I know it isn't typical of hotels in Spain.

    The food was extremely good, especially the Christmas Eve buffet. Plenty of choice to suit all tastes. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

    A pleasant, relaxing time on the whole.
    • Leisure trip

    • Twin Room
    • Stayed 11 nights

    Two large parties arrived for our last few days, this meant that we were restricted to one third of the dining room and the guests in this party seemed to think the hotel was theirs to do what they wanted regardless of the other guests. Some of the staff appeared to be unhappy with conduct of this party.

    Staff were very friendly and helpful even those with little English. Beds very comfy and clean, bath needed work as paint applied to bottom was peeling off. Plenty of beds around the pool never overcrowded. Dining room a little crowded in an evening need to choose time to go in.

    Very Spanish hotel - very few Brits or other nationalities. Very much geared to young children when we went in August. Dining room was awash with screaming kids and inadequate parents. Evening entertainment was also geared towards children who didn't seem to go to bed before midnight. Parking is a complete nightmare.

    • Stayed 2 nights

    Basic bathroom, which smelled, poor quality towels for a 4-star. Unexpectedly good shower though. The bar area was also very basic inside. Summer on the terrace would probably be much nicer. The hotel was a bit difficult to find, tucked away behind the seafront. The hotel direction signs in Almunecar were misleading at the end, pointing to Mercadona. Catered for Spanish guests, don't expect English TV. Not a lot of choice of food in the restaurant, most tables reserved for the Mundo Senior groups from other parts of Spain. Would give this hotel 3 stars, definitely not 4.

    We were given a huge family room with wrap-around terrace. The dining times were generous, no rushing down early for breakfast. Bar drinks very reasonably priced for a 4-star hotel. Well situated for the seafront and old town.

    Hotel used (certainly out of season) by large coach parties, mainly Spanish and French and whilst not a problem could be off-putting to some as dining could be extremely noisy. In a very quiet part of town, not much to do at night.

    Swimming pool, temperature maintained in October and not busy. Room with balcony, wifi. Restaurant very good, pleasant staff and varied buffets.

    Spent four nights here over New year half board (food average)also paid €180 extra for the "Gala Dinner" and free bar. Found this to be a complete waste of money as the normal evening meal was still available. The food again was average at best, no party atmosphere, bright lights, television blaring and kids running around.
