We were halfboard on this busy very spanish hotel. From the day we arrived at reception to departure one week later, we were treated very friendly by staff everywhere- which is by no means always the case in spanish hotels.. It can be quite hectic in weekends, so take that in consideration if you want a quiet stay..Otherwise fantastic surroundings...

I was there in May/June this year and initially had a doubt about the quality ...but can totally say that the resort was amazing. Had lots and lots of things to do.

Playacalida is a very nice hotel located within quiet suburbs of Almunecar - a great advantage if you want to have a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Late in the evening, you can sit on a balcony, listen to the sounds of nature and watch the sea (if there are no kids around you :) )....

The hotel was very nice for the price we paid and the location was also very good. Between Granada and Malaga you can do a lot of amazing sightseeing ! The pools were very nice, specially the one where you can see the sea directly. The one thing I disliked was the food and the service. I was so happy...

DO NOT STAY HERE! I booked through a spanish agency. I was promised a room with an ocean view…I was partially below ground level with a view of bushes. It was dirty and moldy.

The hotel is at the end of Almunecar, the town which is difficult to say as interesting or beautiful (with its hotels built in seventies).

I’m not choosy about cooking, but for the first time for several years now I had to eat so bad-tasting meals (it refers to lunches and dinners).
