Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having already been to Ikos Oceania a few years ago and had a great experience we decided to book Ikos Andalusia for a special occasion. Unfortunately we were sadly disappointed and would not return or in fact book any of the Ikos chain in the future. We were met at reception by a ‘deluxe’ concierge to explain details about the hotel. We were very surprised on arrival by the number of prams and pushchairs in the reception area. With toddlers and babies everywhere. We had booked a ‘deluxe junior sea view suite’ in the deluxe section, but it had no sea view, sort of a garden facing a walkway on the ground floor. We expressed regret to the member of staff, who said we may be able to look at another room the following day. However, for a short 7 day break, I was not prepared to pack up and move rooms. The staff member then sort of hounded us for the rest of the holiday, I think in an attempt to avoid any negative reviews. The room felt very cramped it had no outlook and it was dark with little natural light or sunlight, it was in shade all day. For the price it was poor value. Over the Winter a new pool for the deluxe area had been built, however the seating around the pool was cramped, and despite there being a lovely separate children’s pool, parents took their toddlers and babies into the main pool. The children’s pool was usually empty. We opted to sit at the adult only pool, which is available to all adult guests, it was quiet, but very out of the way, as far away from the deluxe area as possible on the hotel site and with no sea views. Having paid for the deluxe room etc, we did not use that pool area at all. The restaurants were OK, but overrun by small children and babies, on one occasion our table became surrounded by discarded pushchairs that a large group shoved away from their table. The main bar area where musical acts play in the evenings was again a playground for kids running around and playing. There was a small adults bar in the evening ( one of the daytime pool bars) but with no ambience or entertainment It seems Ikos are offering deals eg. first child up to 11yrs stays free. I can understand why people take advantage of this, but unfortunately it is at the expense of the overall experience for remaining guests and the ambiance of the resort.

Hotel's Favourite
This was our second visit to Ikos Andalusia this year and I have to say it was absolutely outstanding. Having had a few very minor issues in May we were delighted that our second visit was faultless. The quality of service, food and beverages is second to none, the staff go out of their way to ensure that guests expectations are met and exceeded which allows for a completely relaxing and enjoyable holiday. It was lovely to see that some of our previous comments had been taken on board, with the old Deluxe Pool being made into a quiet zone which allowed adults without children a quiet area to relax and unwind in, and the service at the Cocktail Bar was incredible efficient and friendly. All the restaurants are outstanding in respect of both cuisine and service. A special mention to the chefs who undoubtedly work tirelessly to ensure such a high standard of food. We ate in all the restaurants and they all offered a vast and varied menu. Service was always first class. We did eat out one night, in the "dine out" restaurant in Estapona, this was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend this for a change of scenery. Again the food and service were excellent and a courtesy bus is laid on to take and collect you to/from the restaurant. My thanks to Dimitra Spanou , Rooms Division Manager who went above and beyond to assist us both prior to and during our holiday, her care and attention to detail is exemplary and she is a true asset to the Ikos Brand - not only did she come to say "hello" when we arrived but also checked in on us several times during our stay. My only regret is that we only stayed 7 nights ! However, we look forward too returning to Ikos Dassis in May 2024. If you are thinking about booking a holiday to Ikos Andalusia, do not hesitate it is wonderful.

After our first Ikos holiday and stay at Ikos Andalusia in 2022, we had to go back! This time with my parents who loved it so much they have booked another Ikos holiday for this year! The service was exceptional, the resort was even further improved from our first visit with brand new restaurants and further additions to the resort. Everything about the resort is beautiful. We took a Tesla out for the day and went to the Zoo with our 3 year old who absolutely loved the whole day, including the packed lunch Ikos kindly put together for day trips. The food really is 5* with so much choice. My mum is extremely fussy with food standards and she loved it. The room was beautiful and really clean which is hugely important to me when I go away. The staff simply cannot do enough for you, they work so hard and the hotel really is a credit to them. We are booked to go to Odisia this year, purely to try another Ikos experience but Andalusia will be hard to beat!

After visiting Ikos in Greece 5 times and having a wonderful holiday I decided to treat my family to a week at this hotel voted number one family holiday in the uk really? We went in October so unfortunately we had some rain nothing for the children but a play room with one brio carriage. They do have a kids club but we went as family to spend time together apart from being expensive we had three children so it would have been an even more expensive holiday and one of the children has additional needs so not fair on him or staff to be responsible for his well being. With this in mind the long wait to be seated at the buffet restaurant really was not acceptable. The pool had flaking paint which we had to dig out one of their nails. Money went missing from one of our rooms, not a lot but even so! Great for adults great food and drink and Tesla for them to use for a day. I did share my grievances with the hotel but felt I wasn’t taken seriously. I felt I had to write this as people need to know what to expect when paying the amount of money we did.

Such a brilliant, stress-free holiday. At Ikos Andalusia they have truly thought of everything. We went with our 3 year old and everything was taken care of from cots/beds, to high chairs and toddler cutlery in every restaurant and even potties available for your room. A non-negotiable for us was good food and that’s absolutely what you’ll get here. Everyone was so welcoming and took great care of us during our trip. Pilar A was amazing at getting us settled and looked after us throughout, for anything we needed. Our daughter also loved the entertainment, especially the daily pre-dinner activities provided by the lovely Beatriz and team. I would wholeheartedly recommend Ikos Andalusia to anyone travelling with children and we plan to go back again soon (having never repeated a holiday before, Ikos has changed us!).

Amazing family friendly 5 star hotel. Stayed here with out 2 & 5 year old in July for 2 weeks, pool temps were perfectly heated. My oldest enjoyed the swimming lessons provided in the main pool. Drinks/ food service around the pool were quick and tasty. Food in all restaurants was AMAZING we usually ordered 3 courses and anything extra if we wanted we ate in the restaurants almost every night, buffet maybe once or twice. Children well catered for just ask and they’ll provide anything thats not even on the menu. We didnt use the kids club/ creche so cant comment but my girls loved the entertainment on the night especially the disney show which is late but is worth keeping them up for. We stayed in a private garden suite and it was perfect for our family. Didnt hire the tesla or use the busses provided to other towns. Whats app service was great. Service from staff amazing. I would 100% recommend this hotel for families with young children and would most certainly return. Thanks Ikos for an amazing stay!

When we arrived at Ikos (Sept 2023), we were greeted by welcoming staff and provided with drinks whilst check-in was being processed. Glancing around, the resort is beautiful. Tasteful decor, stunning landscaping, the sea in the short distance, pristine pools. It's a sizeable resort. So my natural instinct was to think, how can they possibly deliver an excellent standard of service across a resort of this size? And I am a stickler when it comes to service and hygiene and cleanliness. Those doubts soon disappeared. Ikos Andalusia is truly outstanding.... impeccable!! I cannot believe the calibre of service and experience we received throughout the week we stayed there. The rooms were amazing and cleaned every day - we opted for the superior ocean view rooms with balcony and they kindly situated our two adult children in a room close to us. We also stayed a couple of nights in the Junior Suites with sea view. That was an amazing highlight to our stay. We didn't opt for the Deluxe option to our stay. We didn't feel it necessary. The resort has an adult only pool separate from the other pools if you prefer quiet time away from families with younger children. Deluxe entitles you to a separate restaurant for breakfast and a separate pool to everyone else and I believe that pool still has a children's area. The restaurants and bars are fantastic. We were really impressed with the food, whether it was in the restaurant or pool side or beach side. Our daughter is gluten free and every restaurant we booked in was made aware from the start of our stay. They even arranged GF snacks for her room. Flavors and Fresco were our absolute favourite places to eat. We also took a advantage of the day trip into Puerto Buenos. All in all a magical place to stay. The whole family loved it. The staff are so well trained. So much attention to detail across the board. We will definitely visit again. Thank you to all the staff at IKos Andalusia for a stunning holiday.

I have never had service I have enjoyed so much. The staff are amazing at their jobs and everything is "just right". The hotel is just fabulous and their eye for detail and thinking of guests needs is as good as it gets. It feels like a small area in a town filled with great retauarants and bars and the outside areas and pools are just perfect. For the quality and variety of foods and drinks what I thought was 'not cheap' turned out to be a bargain. I never feel a place is perfect, then I went here. They have nailed it.

This was our third time at this Ikos, our first time deluxe here. It did not disappoint. Absolutely loved the new deluxe set up, the deluxe pool is fantastic and the staff felt like family. They genuinely seemed pleased to see you. Seasons is a lovely addition. This time we used the shuttle buses to go to Estepona and Puerto Banus, worth the effort of heaving ones bottom off a sun bed. Easy to use and both journeys relatively short. I can’t really fault any restaurant, all were excellent as was the service. Would like to call out every staff member but don’t have there names sorry. I do have the majority of the deluxe pool staff so I would like to mention the lovely Dora (wanted to take her home), Manuel, Maria, Andrea, Niko and the always smiling Richard. Until next time…….

IKOS is a truly 5* hotel! This was our first visit on recommendation from friends and we absolutely loved it ……the food was spectacular as was every single member of staff we interacted with. The hotel grounds were immaculate and we couldn’t have asked for more. The gym was well equipped and the rooms in great condition. Amazing choice of restaurants and bars …..I couldn’t recommend it enough. The kids had a fabulous time in the pools and kids’ club so one happy family! Thanks to everyone at IKOS for making our stay so special.
