Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was excellent and the staff was very friendly. All staff wore masks at all times, so we felt very safe. (They scan your temperature when you arrive to eat.) The problem is the food. There is plenty of food and lots to choose from at the buffets, some of it prepared on grills immediately within your view, but it wasn’t very good. Sometimes we found something decent at one meal, but then it wasn’t available during the rest of our stay. There is one restaurant, La Dolce Vita, which requires reservations. There is no charge for this restaurant, but you must have reservations because it’s so popular. We can understand why; we ate there the last night of our stay and it was OUTSTANDING. Truly excellent! If we had known, we would have made reservations (well in advance, even before we arrived) to dine there every night of our stay! Note that if you need a PCR or antigen test, there is a doctor who comes to the hotel and you get the results the next day; you can even have them emailed to the reception desk, who will then print them out for you. But it’s not cheap; €90 for a PCR test. However, we had checked at other locations and this seemed to be the going rate, unless you want to go back to the Malaga Airport (if you do that, you will have to make an appointment FAR in advance), where the test costs much less. We took a day trip to Gibraltar, which we HIGHLY recommend, and a day trip to Grenada to see the Alhambra, also excellent.
