In 2003 and 2005 we are already in the almuñécar Playa spa hotel. Since then it seems to be the time warp : the rooms are although also today nor very clean, but already a bit 'worn'. Internet access only for one hour free of charge (and only in the lobby), speed extremely slow (download with 0.06 kpbs, ping 400 ms). Also the parking space is liable to pay the costs. We will next time another hotel visit. …  read hotel review

What I especially noticed, how bad foreign languages skills the employees are! Hardly a could, or wanted to, a other language except for Spanish. Partly very unfriendly staff in the restaurant. The waiter Patxi has correctly with friendliness and language skills rausgesstochen. Front desk also good. The dining room is very old, small and uncomfortable. The guests had to at the entrance wait until space was. How goes it only in the peak season to? There w …  read hotel review

A pleasant stay during the Halloween period

  • November 2014
We are regular visitors of this hotel, but we never traveled so late in the season. Actually the hotel closed on our last day there (Nov 2) and reopens Dec 20, 2014 for their next season. We were somewhat wondering if we would notice the fact that they were closing 6 weeks during the buffets. We would understand that they would try to avoid many left-overs from the last 1 or 2 days opening, but this was not the case. The magnitude of food choices varied with the hotel occupation (wide choice at high attendance periods in the week-end) but ... the nearby hotel closing had no impact at all ! The hotel has also again made some small improvements / renovations since our previous visit. We noticed the plants in the terras borders of the suits are being cleaned / renovated; there were new cushions in the terras furniture of the suits and there were now 2 flat screens (one in bedroom and one in living room). All by all we enjoyed our stay as we did all the previous times. And also good to notice: in spite of having to work till the last opening day all personnel we again very friendly and helpfull as ever. read hotel review

    We always go for a junior suite. It costs more than the standard room, but you have excellent advantages like : all on the higher floors (5th and higher), beautifull views, very nice terras, etc...

    There is a very good and extended entertainment program, even in low season. On Nov 1, with Halloween, the entire day was focused around the children, with a scary dressing party before the dinner and a Halloween dance party after. Great for kids !! But of course the parents enjoyed too.

    As usual, the personnel is very friendly and they are all doing their very best to talk to you in foreign languages. Room cleaning is perfect. Sometimes even to the extreme. We got twice new bed-sheets in a 4 day period. I got an extra pillow within minutes after my request. We got the room we requested,... I can go one for a while giving positive examples.

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is close to the beach as well as close to the city center and some local attractions like the nice tourism office, the city park and the castle. These are all at walking distance.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    Breakfast is very good with a wide choice. Dinner varies with the attendance. At high attendance (e.g. during the week-end) there is much choice and variation. Especially the Saturday is always very good. This time it was completely in the Halloween theme. Very nicely decorated platters and stands with "fun" like scary eyes (decorated cold eggs); spooky sausages (sausage wrapped in bacon with black dots as eyes); beautifull sculptured scary pompkin head; ... The guests took hundreds of pictures and it was great fun for children too. There were special Halloween coctails (for children and with alcohol for the adults) at democratic prices.

  • August 2014
Very good holiday. We had an excelent vacation with the 2 childrens. The buffet is great. The night entertainment is a little bit nasty as the music is too loud, but day activities are fine. We did almost all activities and managed to keep the same weight at the end of the vacaction in spite of the excellent buffet. Children enjoyed a lot the MiniDisco and the MiniClub read hotel review

As said in the title, this has been our seventh time so far at this hotel (and it won't be the last). We're a Spanish family and we've always liked Almuñécar. We booked a room at Almuñécar Playa Spa Hotel for the first time in 2002, and since then we've returned to this hotel over and over again. The place is just lovely and the hotel and its staff and facilities are excellent. read hotel review
