stayed in the el Puerto from 25-12 till 1-01-2012.
the rooms are small but clean,first day we had a room at the back of the hotel
and the view was awful,the room stank and the water was black when i turned on the tap.
the hotel room had not been used for two months and the traps had dried out ,filling the room with the smell of sewage
i demanded another room ,and was given a sea view the next morning.
no festive spirit in the hotel ,no entertainment for the duration of my stay.
we was told more than halve the rooms are privately owned and a lot of owners don't sublet,hence the fact that the hotel was nearly empty.
my guess is that there were only about 30 guests in the hotel.
reception staff were not very helpful and grumpy.
the food was basic,not much variation and always cold,not helped by the fact that for the first 3 days the microwave was out of use.
at the back of the hotel are a few cheap pubs and open late ,Tommy and stevie from the quell bar (£1.80/pint)are great hosts and made our holiday,they also provide free wifi to the customers.
the wifi in the hotel is a rip off and cost an arm and a leg.
the swimming pool on the roof was closed for the first two days despite the lovely sunny weather and only opened after complaints from guests.
the hotel needs a bit of maintenance,window frames with peeling paint in the dining room,around the pool the plant boxes were full of weeds
and more worrying a lot of concrete rot were the skin of render has falling of the hotel exposing reinforcement steel in the concrete.
the steel railings on the roof(pool) were rusted away in places.
the location of the hotel is great,cross the road and you are on the beach by the marina.
a nice few hours out is a visit to the zoo in fuengirola at 17 euro or 11 euro for pensioners
would i go back to this hotel.....NO!!
