I read reviews about surly staff before i booked this hotel. Probably one word to describe some of the less smiley male staff but they were smart, efficient, polite possibly just a little too formal. Yet the the female personnel in all departments
gave excellent service, superb customer recognition when passing guests anywhere in the hotel and close attention to customer service. There is an air of formality that comes across from the male staff, almost as if they have been trained to do so to limit any familiarity.
This hotel was excellent value for money and well situated for a short stroll into the port. there is a walk way all the way along the beach to Marbella that is great for exercise, running etc;
Very good breakfast with everything hot, fresh and tempting. You name it and it was probably there. I didn't see porridge but then again I didn't ask either. a superb selection was also available at dinner but I did think E29.50 was a bit steep for a buffet
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Low season meal offers in the port are excellent value at E15.00 and E18.50 but be prepared to pay a 2.50 cover charge that brings lovely warm bread and a pre starter of hot soup.
