“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

All I can do is add to the other positives about this hotel, it is fitted out to a very high standard throughout and has the little personal touches you would expect from a 5 star hotel.The staff are amazing, friendly, helpful, polite & always with a smile and pleased to see you, a rare combination in hotels on the Med.
The choice at breakfast is fantastic, with a range going from English cooked Breakfast to a chocolate fountain & strawberries!
The weather wasnt warm enough for us to use the outdoor pool facility but we did use the Spa pool, its not really designed for swimming but lots of different spa options exist & the water was lovely & warm, there is also a steam room & sauna, another nice touch was the fresh fruit bowl in the spa area.
On arrival we were upgraded to a superior room,they are located in the 2 floors below the restaurant, there is only 6 of these rooms on each floor with nice comfortable balconies & on the lower floor ( B) there is a shared garden area.
The promenade is directly below the hotel & there is direct access to it from the hotel by a lift by the outdoor pool, which also gives access to the garage.
We didnt eat at night in the restaurant has it appeared a little too quiet( it was February) but we found plenty of nice places near by in the Marina ( Angus, Metro) & Il Girasole just down the road.
This is right up there with all the hotels we have stayed in & we will definitely stay here again, we had a fantastic break & the hotel helped make it

I too agree with the other reviews, a beautiful hotel with amazing superior bedrooms and bathroom that was fantastic. great views of the sea as well.

This hotel is very adult, with a lovely spa, the staff were all very polite and eager to help, the only critisism we could find was the restaurant. The breakfasts are amazing but although the staff were polite and helpful we were often left sitting waiting to order our drinks / wine and although they said the half board menus changed every two days it was the same meals worded differently. but in saying this apart from the service in the restaurant, we stay all over the world in the best hotels. and this hotel was up there. very easily the best we have stayed in in mainland europe so far

i would highly recommend this hotel for grown ups ... dont spoil it by bringing the kids.

Room Tip: go for the superior rooms

We have just returned from the hotel after an 11 night stay. All the previous good reports we would agree with, the hotel is beautiful clean and very well run. The fittings are of very high quality and no cost has been spared. The staff were superior to any we have encountered anywhere in the world. And the breakfast? well if they can pass the perfectly done soft boiled egg test (and they did) this must be one of the finest breakfasts around. But did we find perfection? nearly but not quite. A hotel of this class should be able to supply pillows to match the excellent bed. Sadly we were given a balloon shaped solid foam pillow when we asked for an extra one. Surely someone can supply proper soft filled pillows in Spain.

The television stations available in English language were very limited, basically Sky News and Bloomberg. It should be possible to get at least the BBC ITV etc.

And finally to dinner. We did not wish to go out for dinner in the evening, so we chose the half board option. I am sure that the dinner menu would be fine for short stays, but the sameness of the four choices in starters and mains got to be a real issue with us over the 11 nights. Added to this, although the dishes are served in the modern "looks good" style; often using a flat black slate like platter, basically all that was on the plate was a very well presented and cooked portion of protein. You would not find a green vegetable here (or of any colour) and It was impossible to get the "five portions" on this menu. In fact for two evenings we opted out and ate out locally. Would we go back again? No, not until they sort out the dinners anyway. That's a pity because there is the potential here for an outstanding hotel catering for the international market.

We have just returned from a weekend break at this hotel and I cannot recommend it highly enough!!
The staff are all so lovely and make you feel so welcome, treating you like a friend even though it was our 1st time at this hotel( I am sure it won't be our last). I would like to make a special mention of Marta and Patricia on the front desk who went out of there way to make us feel so special with nothing being to much trouble.
We stayed in a superior room which was really spacious, very well appointed and amazing views as well.
The hotel has a lovely spa and we took advantage of this by both having a lovely relaxing massage...bliss. Admission to the spa area was included in the price of our stay as was the valet parking.
Breakfast was really worth getting up for...delicious with hot food cooked to order as well as a sumptuous buffet including a White chocolate fountain and champagne if you want it.
We also ate in the restaurant one evening and took the 25euro set 3course meal which again was delicious. The restaurant staff are very attentive and work really hard to keep you happy.
Can't recommend this little jewel highly enough...yes you can find a hotel cheaper but treat yourself, spend a little more and you won't be disappointed.

We stayed here for one night on Christmas day. Once we arrived we suddenly felt welcome into this beautiful lobby. The receptionist was helpful and welcoming and showed us around the hotel and our room (which was lovely) the downstairs spa/pool area was very relaxing and a nice amenitie to waste a few hours. The rooms were huge and clean and included so many free things. We had christmas dinner in the lovely dining room which had lovel views of the med :) I recommend highy the best hotel on the del sol!

The vistas alone are very soul satisfying, the Spa is the icing on the cake. Beautiful Hotel, 5* cleanliness, very helpful & accomodating staff. The rooms are exceptional. Arrived to a fab New Years Day brunch, although check in was late due to the prior evenings celebrations-we were made to feel valued and welcome.
There was no bar service as such this time of year, late evening anyway- this was my only problem. We did wait longer than we hoped for our drinks. However, this was our only issue, I am sure management are working on this, they seemed very proffesional.
With no hesitation can recommend, will return!

Room Tip: I think all rooms face the sea, possibly ensure that the room is well ventilated during the summer m...

I stayed here in January with my 10 year old son.
The property has been recently rebuilt, I think it was formallyjust the Aleysa Hotel. I found that some taxi drivers were unaware of the place, the airport taxi was insisting on bringing us to Malaga (there is another vincci hotel there) before I corrected him.
The site is small and possibly overdeveloped. This led to the sun disappearing off the balcony early (we were in the front block, furthest from the ocean).
That brings me to my first criticism, unless you book a superior room the balcony is essentially a public space. The external corridor serving the rooms passes between the balcony and each room. This results in people passing the room window so you will probably want to keep the curtains closed, hardly ideal on the Costa del Sol!
My second criticism is of the bar. It is located in the hotel lobby and is not permanently staffed (this is understandable given that the hotel is small.... only 38 rooms, I think). I found it difficult to get a drink at times. I saw no other customers there. This might not be so important to many guests but I always like a good bar scene so that I can wait for my wife getting ready to go out without staying in the room or leaving the building.
However, service was otherwise generally very good and very friendly.
Free fast WiFi throughout. Complimentary Malage dessert wine in room on arrival and chocolates each evening
The food was superb. We had breakfast each morning from a wonderful selection and dinner one evening. The views over the Med from the restaurant were wonderful.
The pool looked nice but we didn't use it because it was too cold (January, remember), it was quite small (but probably adequate for the hotel size) and shallow. There is a hot tub alongside.
There is a stair and lift providing direct access to the Paseo Maritimo below.
The bathroom was very well laid out with twin basins, a stand-alone bath and a seperate walk-in shower with both an overhead outlet and a hand-held shower head. Very well stocked with toiletries.
Check in and out was efficient and friendly, although one lady became a little aggressive when I mildly criticised the balcony arrangement (after being asked how my stay was),she attempted to convince me that the open balcony arrangement was somehow fashionable!
Despite my little criticisms, this is undoubtedly a very fine hotel and I would not hesitate to recommend it, I have already done so in fact. I suggest you look for a superior room for the private (normal) balcony.

Room Tip: Get a superior room.
