Lovely view, spacious room

Infestation of ants which spoilt the spacious room, and ants in more than one room. Faulty hot tub on balcony. Room cleaning very poor, coffee stain on balcony left by myself was still there, maid simply made the bed, but did not mop, or replace used drinking glasses. The most disappointing thing was the wifi, could not connect at all. The food was minimal, ala carte menu extremely limited and only 3 course, which for the portion sizes should of been 7 course. The hotel did not mention the breakfast was continental. The hotel was not bad but been to much better for the price, will never return, I don't recommend !!!!!

Dear Mr. Cole: Thanks for your fedback by this way. The ants could appear if you leave your own meal on tables inside the room when our housekeeping staff finished at the middle of the day, that is the reason we could not review. I hope you informed to reception staff to solve your problem with the hot tub. I have no info related to that. If we have no notice we do not solve it. The food is not minimal, it is a la carte with a lot of different options and choices. Maybe, you expected a buffet or an all inclusive hotel. The hotel, the hydros web and you welcome info shows the quality and kind of breakfast we have. Sorry about the wifi ( free ), we had a problem with our provider. Did you mention this to recepction? We have no notice you were disappointed acording with this department. I hope you will choose us again in your next visit. Kind regards Pedro H I hope

A fantastic hotel with jaccaussi on balcony, beautiful terrace to relax on pool good size. This is a Spa Wellness Hotel which should have a calm, tranquil and relaxing atmosphere which it does but was very surprised to see so many children most of whom were noisy and unsupervised which spoilt the ambiance of the place. Don't think it is the place for children to be especially as they are not supervised and there is no lifeguard. Brilliant Hotel with excellent Spa and restaurant, Rooms large and comfortable. no ketle. Courtesy bus runs downhill to security gate also offers trips to nearby beach during summer months.

Hienot puitteet ja näköalat. Siistiä ja ehdottoman ystävällinen ja avulias henkilökunta. Navigaattorin kanssa oli vaikeuksia löytää, Hotellin sisäänkäynti on nykyään ison resort alueen kautta, monen mutkan kautta. Huoneessa ei ollut roskiksia, siitä annoin palautetta. Jos tarvetta parkkipaikalle, heillä hyvä alue, jossa oli aina tilaa.

Das Personsl war sehr freundlich! Das Essen war gut und die Aussicht wunderschön! Der Whirpool sollte auch mal während des Aufenthalts gereinigt werden, war leiser nie der Fall. Das Hotel befindet sich an einer guten Lage, wäre ein direkter Zugang zur Strasse verfügbar. So muss anstatt ein Weg von 1 Minute wird zu einem Weg von 10 - 15 Minuten. Sollte unbedingt gemacht werden!

Turvallinen paikka suljetulla alueella, bussikuljetukset portille. Rauhallinen ja hyvät näköalat. Henkilökunta ja palvelu erinomaista! Lasten kanssa matkustavalle mukava lisä oli viereinen vesipuisto, joka kuului hintaan.

Nice and clean hotel with outdoor pool and jacuzzi in the balcony of your own room. Only minus comes from the fact that walking to the outer world from the hotel complex takes some time and effort, the beach is not as close as one would think...

Perhehotelli lähellä rantaa. Upeat näkymät.

Rantabulevardilla useita hyviä rantaravintoloita monenlaiseen ruokailuun ja rantatuoleja lepäilyyn ja auringon ottoon.

Spectacular view, great facilities

We were upgraded to a bigger room in two bedrooms and balconies, which was so nice. The view from the room was amazing. Staff was very helpful and spoke English well. Recidents of the hotel were able to use all pools and restaurants in Holiday World area. Pool area was beautiful with all those cozy sun beds. I would definitely recommend this hotel! Beds in the room instead were way too hard to me, but of course that's only my opinion. Cleaning was also quite lite, and they didn't refill shampoos and shower gels during the week. The entrence to the hotel area was far away from the hotel, and the shuttle bus ended already 18 pm so the only way to get away from the hotel at night time was taxi, and during our stay there was a taxi strike in Benalmádena and Malaga. Sea and beach seems to be close, but actually they wasn't that close because of the winding road.
