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

Giving this hotel an excellent rating could be somewhat exaggerated, but when I would purely consider value for money, than I would certainly rate it excellent. There may be more luxurious hotels than this 4-star spa hotel, but than the price is always also "luxurious". Our trip was for 4 nights of which we stayed 3 nights completely free of charge in half-board as a result of using our loyalty Club Playa Vip points from this hotel group (Senator Hoteles). You might expect a somewhat more basic stay because of this "free of charge" stay, but this was certainly not ... the case. Our entire stay was to the same high standard as usual. Some customers have complained in their reviews that the hotel needs some "refreshment". While the hotel can indeed use here and there some renovation we noticed several elements that have already been improved over the past year. Furniture in the hotel hall is old, but was renovated recently, old TV's in the suites were replaced by modern flat-screens (1 of the 2 TV's in each suite), leak in the hall roof seems repaired, partial repainting of part of the hotel Knowing what crisis Spain had to confront, I would call this an achievement. If the hotel continues its efforts for the future, this should no longer create an issue. Food is good with a wide selection possible. Free cava and water are offered during breakfast. You can ask your omelet made-to-order on the show-cooking counter, etc. read hotel review

    Excellent service of loyal personnel. Most of them work there since our first visit 5 years ago, which I consider a good sign. All hotel personnel is very friendly and they make an effort to help you in French/English.

    The hotel is located next to the beach and you have a nice promenade between hotel and beach. View from the hotel -especially if you have seaview - is nice. Public market (on Friday), city park and city castle are all within walking distance.

We were not for the 1st time in almunecar Playa and as with the previous visit very satisfied. The hotel could at some places a renovation, special. The carpet in the hallway on the 3. floor. That was really not acceptable. Since the hotel was in the november for some time, there is hope, that with our next attendance (probably in february 2015) on the floors in the corridors work has been done. We enjoyed the food both the breakfast and the dinner mostly good. The selection was plentiful and good. We had a while and at the beginning of ... problems with the hand towel change. The towels were in the bathroom not dry. After the hotel manager asked at the front desk had switched, we could the towels when necessary with the zimmermächdchen exchange. With the cleaning, 2 times a week, we were very clear. Unfortunately, this good assessment not for the tour operator v-tours As our rückreisetag in nrw the rosenmontagszüge moved, we had a abendflug booked, the of air Berlin painted and on the lunch was moved. But the travel agent nothing. Our request, us a other flight in the evening in the air Berlin (it went in the evening still flights from malaga on Palma after Düsseldorf) to procure was immediately by e-mail for. read hotel review

The hotel is placed very close to the sea, on the seaside promenade so it has a perfect location. Good and quiet atmosphere and an excellent service. A competent staff idoneous for the hotel. Good choice. read hotel review

This was our 6th visit and we go back next year !

This is now our sixth visit and we intend to go back next year April. Food is very decent with a wide selection of cold and warm vegetables; fish, meats, stews, pastas, fruits, dessertsFood is partly prepared in advance, but includes also show cooking and includes even made to order cooking (e.g. omelets at breakfast, pancakes in the evening). Everyday you can have cava at breakfast. Rooms are kept clean, our linen was changed 3 times in a week and towels daily if you wish so. We booked a suite (of course somewhat more expensive). This has ... frontal seaview and we had a beautifull view over Almunecar castle too (with superb sunrise in the morning). Booking a suite has some advantages like reduced cost in the hotel parking (and in some periods even free of charge) and a nice attention in your room at arrival (or in our case when we returned from our souper). Go for a room on the higher floors (5th and higher). Views are beautiful and streetnoise is limited (if any). Drinks are priced very reasonable and there is also daily a happy hour between 17.00 and 18.00 hrs. Buy one, get two ! We will certainly go back. read hotel review

    There is a public market every Friday at walking distance (about 1.5kms) which is worthwhile visiting. Hotel is next to the promenade and opposite the beach. The city park and the castle are very nearby (at 5 minutes walk).

Family friendly hotel with an international audience in direct beach proximity. The place is good to foot to reach. Playa-guests are already when entering the impressive lobby with a great foliage, aviary and waterfall at home, new customers probably not much later. Also in the restaurant the famous variety and quality. The starters and obstfan i had no wishes open, everything very appetizing and also immediately refilled. Animaionsprogramm versatile. My room was spacious and nicely decorated with a view of the pool area and partial ocean view. It was clean, but the stone floors in some spots a speckle removal ... use, so that the original beauty again effective. Receipt and consultation in the spa are friendly and competent. The spa area was in order, but i would like to see a haubenpflicht. I can recommend the massage. Overall, a pleasant stay. read hotel review
