Spent a week here at the end of Sep 14. First visit to Costa del Sol and booked hotel based on previous reviews. First impression was o.k. - reception staff efficient and welcoming, and quick. Corridor to room is very dated and the orange walls could do with a lick of paint and carpet dated. However cannot fault cleanliness of room and hotel overall. Food choice was good for AI as were the quality of the drinks. My only negative was the bar staff - majority of who were very ignorant - would walk past in stead of serving, never saw a smile and trying to be pleasant to them was met with a brick wall. The restaurant staff were a little better and service in the restaurant was very good. The walk back up to the hotel after a stroll each day certainly helped to keep the calories at bay!! Overall an excellent place to holiday and I would return to the area, though not necessarily to the Bali.More

enjoyable stay oct 7 - 14 oct 2014

had a lovely time even though the weather wasn't as good as last year at this time of year. found the staff to be very helpful and polite, food was fine and didn't really struggle to find out to eat, drinks were all nice and entertainment was very good. rooms were modern and clean, though thought bathroom could do with a little TLC. The rooms were a bit on the small side and my partner kept walking into the table near to the wall going to the bathroom in the night. Beds were very comfortable but I kept getting red spots on my right on side that I was sleeping on. Had a fabulous view over the marina and beach. Really pleased. Hotel is a bit tired but didnt spoil our nice time here. Close to shops, bars and restaraunts. Mullarkys Irish bar was really good down the hill and turn right. Had a lovely trip to Marbella and had a fishing trip booked, but due to the weather turning nasty was unable to go to the fishing trip. Love Costa del Sol and will definitely will be going back but maybe try another hotel. Thanks again for the lovely stay and hope I didn't hurt peoples ears on my last night on the karaoke singing "Prince"More

Cardiac Hotel

Arrived mid -day, staff very nice, gave us a room on the top floor the 7th, room 1711 it overlooked the famous marina and the sea, it had 2 plastic chairs and a table on the balcony. Room was a studio very small and had to move the bed to get into the closet. Did have air con which was a bonus since it was still hot there in Oct. The beds were made up everyday. we were on at half board, plenty of it but basic. The Wi-Fi was only in reception Free if you could get it which I did not, even asking for the password everyday, still no connection. They did have a premium rate for the Wi-Fi which you had to pay £5 a day, forget it I said. Not very impressed with that. Will not be going back and wont miss the Cardiac Hill that it sits on sorry.More

Fab family holiday

Went to this hotel with my family and friends and had a brill time. Hotel is really good and yes a little tired in areas but on the whole it is a great hotel. Bar areas are fab and all the drinks were all great unlike a lot of all inclusives I have been too !!!! Food was all ok but I'm not really a fan of all inclusive food but you would definately not go hungry. Staff all friendly and entertainment was good. Hotel was close to pretty much close to everything, we got the bus into torremolinos and fuengerola. Went to a pub on the next street along at top of hill called Jolly Roger I think and food was fab, on the whole we had a great holiday, only down side is cardiac hill 😥 which you have to walk up whenever you venture out and return to hotel. The harbour is gorgeous also.More
