A very nice hotel, very luxurious, rooms are all with a view of the sea, a bit annoying the evening programs singing (affected are rooms to the park are located) until 11:45 p. m. from then returning peace; meal rich and very well; the hotel's own beach, one should not use many great and sharp stones and rocks in the water; the adjacent naturist beach approximately 3 minutes away is more beautiful, just beautiful sand; excursions to Ronda and Estepona - altstadt recommended; i would also all inclusive recommendable, as everything is very overpriced; a Aldi - convenience store ... was right across the street Bewertung lesen

In rush hour wait for a place on the terrace, if it worked, the table only very superficial, because under pressure of time, cleaned. There is a rush to a wellness 5 star hotel ever didn't work. Sometimes in the external area no tablecloths more mood, this is particularly unpleasant. Since it concerns geflechttische is where you in the corners look ... how many people before you have eaten. Sometimes the drinks are ridiculously expensive: espresso 3.50 euro, Cappuccino 4,50 euro The food itself is ok not spectacular, however also not bad. Enjoy you can't, as they were constantly in the trot the cellar around them buzz and cutlery on the glass boom. This is an impossible noise. It is missing simply at enough service staff.

Great location right by the sea, perfect cleanliness in all areas, best breakfast with a massive selection, very friendly staff, professional management. The food is to be added. The breakfast is, as in the evening also, a very varied buffet. That alone was the reason, why we still couldnt be thought, the two restaurants Paris roma and asia to use. First-class, and the through the speedy and always friendly staff. A hotel for feeling good - and the for all target groups! Simply to further recommend it! Bewertung lesen

The hotel is but right out of the way. Car rental is in fact an absolute must. Staff is very friendly and helpful (for example, raul and Pedro); the qualitt the food was good to very good. We would have liked, that individual dishes in particular be identified; partly. Followed this already, but only in spanish. The breakfast is for a 5 star hotel optimierungsfähig there is a lack of fresh yogurts (i do not mean the vorzufindenden of Danone, but the fresh with fruit), dark bread and jam and müli (packaged were there). We had no celebrations and no ... loud spaniard. Everything was great Bewertung lesen
