The only reason for the two stars is that the play area (although dirty) is fun for kids.
The counter service is exceptionally poor. I've seen a sleepy, depressed Two Toed Sloths get things done quicker. If you're out of there in under 15 minutes you're actually pleased... but 25, 30, even 40 or 45 minutes is not unusual.
The food is at times barely edible... because of the time/coordination issues, you can end up waiting for your burger or your chips for 10 or 15 minutes, meanwhile your food that is ready is pushed up against your drink on the tray getting cold.
I wonder... could this particular McDonald's at least have the category of 'fast food' removed from tripadvisor? Let's face it, that title is a bit of a joke.
Seriously... we know that, love it or hate it, the McDonalds gig works, so surely this is not the fault of the badly coordinated, slow staff, but one of management and training. So, why doesn't McDonalds read some of these reviews and make some sweeping management and training changes?

I have nothing against McDonald's. I go there regularly in Italy, where the distinctive trait is that they are usually very clean. McDonald's in Almunecar on a Monday at 13:20 with less than 20 clients seated or queueing was a true surprise. It was unbelievably dirty: filthy tables, spilled sticky liquids on the floor, two slow and confused members of staff for less than 10 queueing customers. This is not a case of overworked staff being overrun by too many customers. This is bad staff and terrible management. An absolute disgrace.

Let's start with a positive about this place before ripping it to bits, the sachet of tomatoe sauce is ok.
As for the rest where do I start, fast food my backside it took 40 minutes to get served even though we were only third in line. They got our order wrong and the family in front, as well as (i could go on and on honestly what a shambles )
Nothing was placed on the tray in quick succession, frys then 5 mins later drinks then another 5 mins burgers the drinks had no syrup and had to be changed.
This place was a shambles when I first tried it in 2004 and after 13 years it managed to go one better and become a complete something shambles (feel free to fill that bit in yourselfs)
They also have a habit of serving locals and Spanish ahead of everyone else by using a hand held order machine and ignoring tourists.
Avoid avoid avoid, you can have a sit down Chinese meal cheaper.

Well always McDonald's is a must to visit. Great food and service. You can use free Wifi when you buy something. Very good location and you can easily visit this when the market is near by. And there is a kids place where you can let your kids play while eating. Also a outdoors terrace possible

I have been known to use the washroom/bathroom/toilet/w.c. facilities at MacDonald's from Prague (where you have to pay) to Bordeaux (where you have to make a purchase) but at least in Almunecar you can just enter, use the Aseos and move on.
