A very nice hotel with friendly staff. Very good location opposite the beach and within walking distance of the town centre. Both breakfast and dinner buffet were very good and lots of various dishes to choose from. Would certainly return to both the hotel and Almunecar.

Great location on Almunecar beach

Pros: The room, beds and breakfast selection were all excellent. Reception service very efficient.
Cons: Nothing really
Location: Ideal location for Lora Park, Botanic gardens and short walk into the old town. Across the road from the pebble beach
We were not expecting a room with a view having booked the cheapest room option but got a side sea view from our balcony. Very large bedroom with two Queen beds and a sitting area. Great buffet breakfast. The hotel is used by Saga so expect a large group of elderly holidaymakers and nightly entertainment focussed on their needs. Great roof top terrace but the bar wasn't open when we were there. Good bar on ground floor next to small pool area. Ideal location for Lora Park, Botanic gardens and short walk into the old town. We only stayed one night on route from Mijas to Granada but were very comfortable. Off season parking free on street outside hotel.
