Families have plenty to keep them busy at this hotel. And grown ups will love the extra pools, restaurant and chill-out area they can exclusively use when they book an adults-only room.
Thanks to its hillside spot, this hotel has fantastic views across the Atlantic. And it won’t take you long to reach the sea and sand – you can get to Playa de Esquinzo via steps at the back of the hotel.
What’s great about this hotel is that it has grown-ups-only bits that are just for you to use if you book an adults-only room – including an à la carte restaurant, a bar and 3 of the 4 pools. And at night, you’ve a choice of venues depending on whether you want music or shows.

Decent winter sunshine
We travelled as a large group of adults and were apprehensive of the many negative reviews. Don't understand the moans about the band system it is clearly an option and if you are not happy you could upgade. Good points . The rooms are well kept, clean and comfortable with adequate air conditioning . The grounds are immaculate . Buffet restaurant had a great selection for breakfast and we enjoyed dinner here on a few evenings. Staff did well accommodating a table of 10. . A la carte restaurants were also fine and service was good . Beach was beautiful and the sea very welcoming . Plenty of sunbeds if you are not fussy which pool you choose Points which could improve . The staff are very unhappy but work so hard in the heat that it is almost understandable. They seem to work very long days without much management support (maybe there is but it wasn't visible). I feel bad for pointing this out but it is the first hotel I have visited that the staff are clearly unfriendly and unhappy and at most times they look very understaffed which isnt their fault. . Lots and lots of flies which can't be helped in the great outdoors however I never touched te desserts at la choza as the flies covered the desserts. A simple cover over the top would help avoid this. . Water - I am sure it would help with the queues at the bar if they had fridges with bottled water. All a cost which I understand but think the bottled water situation is a little silly. . Music in the evening in the reception went on too long and was way too loud! It killed the conversation in what could be a lovely relaxing setting with soft background music. This is a well kept hotel and we certainly got value for money and weren't disappointed. The above is not negative but suggestions that could improve what was an enjoyable stay. Tip - restaurant marabu which is less than 5 euro in a taxi is amazing, great setting, attentive service and fantastic food. Worth a visit.More
Just what the doctor ordered!
Like many other trip advisor readers I was somewhat cautious about the negative reviews that had been posted. I truly believe that they have been to another hotel and not this one. Please don't take any notice of them. The hotel was perfect. My husband and I just needed a break and this hotel provided us with the means to rest and relax. We chose the adult room which gave us access to the chill out pool etc and silver bands. No need to upgrade to the black band as the drinks were fine. Spent our time in the evenings finding out which waiter could do the best Mojitos, it was Miguel by the way. The food was amazing and well presented, always being topped up where necessary. Every night was something different from another culture. We loved the fact that we could go to the La Choza restaurant for a late breakfast and sit watching the lovely view. We had no trouble finding a lounger, I admit many were taken with towels over them and not occupied but that is not the hotel's fault, it happens everywhere. Access to the beach was easy and interesting encountering the Chipmonks. We hired a car for one day and that was easily done through the hotel. It seems that the hotel has tried to cater for everyone, including those that don't want to spend as much especially with families. They had access to everything we did apart from the adult section. If we want to spend more then its our decision and in no way was I made to feel inferior to those wearing black bands. The entertainment was ok, if anything it would have been nice to have a little more professional outside entertainment. We had an Abba tribute band who were very good but most of the events were put on by a selection of the hotels performers, who mimed to soundtracks. Still entertaining never the less. We came away after a week feeling refreshed and made to feel special. I would definitely recommend this hotel.More
Winter Sunshire Hotel
The hotel is situated on the Cliffside with amazing views from the bar and terrace overlooking a long stretch of beach and deep blue water. The layout and gardens of the hotel were really lovely and there are separate pool areas including adults only space, which was particularly relaxing with lots of sunbeds. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable, with a good sized bathroom and small patio area outside. The whole hotel and grounds were very clean and well kept and we liked the different bar areas, the all inclusive gave a good range of drinks and cocktails. There was various entertainment even during the day which added to the atmosphere. Although there are quite a number of steps and the beach is some way down for anyone with any walking difficulties. We were a little disappointed with the food, although there seemed to be plenty of choice, the quality of was not as good as we had expected from the star rating. The staff worked very hard, but they seemed to be under a lot of pressure due to the volume of business and therefore not able to serve as well as they would have liked. We did have lovely weather for November and enjoyed our holiday, weighing all points up it was good value and well worth the visit.More
Trishy21, Bristol, United Kingdom
I have been visiting this hotel on a regular basis since it opened.. I have just returned and found that nothing has changed. The staff are still polite and very hard working,the pool area is cleaned during the day by the pool attendant and has a deep clean each morning. My local leisure club could learn a lot from the cleaning standards that are maintained here! There are plenty of choices in the restaurant. the views from the hotel are superb. The rooms are more than adequate and kept very clean. The standards are not 5 star but you are not paying 5 star prices. The bad reviews of this hotel I feel are from guests with unrealistic expectations considering the price they have paid. I shall be returning very soon.More

We're going back again Nov 15 :)
I felt I needed to write a review, as previous people have stated 'to defend the hotel'. Overall, this is good value and a truly relaxing environment. The complex is set over 3/4 levels so you can choose where you want to be through the day. The large pool area on the main level, had plenty of beds and a separate pool for families with young children. A central bar in the pool with a bridge too and from it, was useful to cool down out of the sun (and get a G&T before the sunset) We had adult only bands (silver I think), the adult area was a level down from the large pool, with a swim up bar and great friendly staff :) always smiling and happy! Further down, a more quieter pool where there was access to free Cava, water, crisps and nuts - all day if you wanted. This was topped up throughout the day. Further around was 2 jacuzzis, where you could sunbathe on a more secluded basis. There was also the nudist area, gated off but very popular, we tried it out towards the end of our holiday and felt quite liberated! Not too many Brits there though lol âºï¸ .... We may make use of that again. Our room was in the adult area, the very last room in the far corner. Although at first we thought it too far away from everything, and asked to move the following day if anything was available, after the first night it was so comfortable with a HUGE comfy bed and quiet, like sooo quiet, we decided to stay. Staff were all helpful and friendly, acknowledging you as you passed them. Food was plentiful and although somewhat of a 'canteen' feel at times, there was always somewhere to sit and once you knew where to get your drinks etc it was fine. We went out to the town one evening and had a nice meal, but preferred to stay at the hotel as it was a 15/20 min or so taxi ride. Having the adult only bands, we were entitled to 2 a la carte meals, which were lovely and well prepared. We met some nice people there, several travelling alone and many retuning several times before, which I think goes to show how popular and friendly it is. I'm looking forward to another relaxing week 21st November onwards ... May the sun shine! ð More
