We stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were very helpful and the kids club team were fantastic. The food was nice with lots of variety and always piping hot. I always found plenty to eat as a vegetarian and my husband is very fussy but was equally happy with the choice of food. The room...

In short version: enjoyable hotel, with an incredible view, tasty buffet and good transportation. In longer version: As we came via train from Malaga airport, it took us around 5-10 minutes to get to the hotel from the train station and about 50 minutes from the airport. All ticket machines have the English-language so it is easy to buy a...

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at this hotel and we really can't find any fault. We were all inclusive and the food was great, plenty of variety and good service. The rooms were good with complimentary toiletries, fresh towels and bedding changed regularly. All inc drinks are pretty basic but as a bonus you do get bottled...

“All rooms have a sea view so although we paid extra for this, there was perhaps no need. Everyone commented on how huge the beds were in the rooms so I am presuming they were all this size, in the double en suite room there must have been two king size beds you could have managed 4 people in there !!”
