Almunecar Playa Spa Hotel
Ranked #4 of 25 Hotels in Almunecar
Reviewed 3 September 2017

Didn't book this hotel, error on booking. This is not the hotel if you want to relax around the pool, saradines comes to mined. We were all inclusive!!! But could only eat in the dinning room, you could eat at the bar but only if you paid. No bottled water in our room. We ate 2 evening meals, but after that we ate out as we could not suffer the hassle of getting your food.
So if you want to relax and have lovely food this is not the hotel to go to ...

It was ok with some things I like to mention before you book this hotel: Need to speak English or French, if you don't you will have problems, spanish people have priority and the Spanish guests with alot of children are rude, pool you need to be early to have a spot, hotel blocks the sun until 1200 in the afternoon, two many kids which don't follow the rules even jump in the pool at midnight, half board no drinks or other things included not even water, very loud all the time, if you want to relax, go to the beach, which you can't find nothing but rocks, no sand as advertised and watch the jellyfish. Other than that we had a wonderful vacation, but I would choose another hotel in Andalusien!

Had another fantastic time at this hotel. Stayed half board for the first time and was very impressed with the food. Staff were friendly and helpful with new members trying out their English on us. Love going to this hotel and town.

We stayed in the Almuñecar playa for a weeks holiday and it certainly met our full expectations in providing a relaxing break. The standard room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Overall, the food was satisfactory and the extensive variety meant everybody was able to find something that they enjoyed It is also ideally situated within close walking distance to the almuñecar old town which is filled with shops and tapas bars making it a perfect base to stay in the town and explore the area as a whole. The only bug bares
that we encountered during our stay was that wifi had to be paid for 20€ per day or 1 hour free daily. Secondly, despite signs saying that reserving sun beds were not permitted, this was not enforced making it difficult to get a sun bed. However, this was not such of an issue for us personally as we often sat in chairs set out by the side of the restaurant. Overall, we would highly recommend the hotel as well as the picturesque town as a whole and already have plans for a longer stay next summer.

The hotel is well situated just across the road from the beach. The room we had was large with a large bed which consisted of two king size beds. The bathroom was also quite big with bath/shower, toilet sink, bidet and hairdryer. Basic toiletries were supplied. The rooms are cleaned every day and towels are replaced if you want. We stayed for two weeks on a bed and breakfast basis. There was plenty of choice for breakfast so everyone should be able to find something that they liked. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would return again. Our room was number 419 and we had a view over the pool and to the sea. There was only one problem the wifi was only free in reception area and for one hour each day and was very slow.This didn't really bother us as we don't go on holiday to be stuck on an iPad but some people may think this inadequate.
