Coffee on the terrace This is a very "spanish" hotel. It was not obvious that the reception and other key staff spoke any english. This was not a problem for me - I speak spanish - but might be for non-spanish speakers. TV channels all spanish.
Clkoseness to beach and the pool. Breakfast was good. Internet access was not available. Pool opening hours (10:00 to 20:00) were too short for August.
Front line with seawievs, best possible location, walking disstance to nice restaurants and shops. Pretty pool area almost on the beach. Friendly staff, very goog place with children. Breakfast ends at 10.00, too early for me in Sunday morning..
Very quiet & relaxing. Did not have Tea/Coffee facility in rooms.
This hotel is mainly for Spanish residents,but the staff are very friendly towards foreigners. Very comfortable and in a good situation, on the edge of the sea! We will always stay here when visiting this area.
Clean, comfortable hotel right on the beach, although a little far from nightlife
views from the room breakfast and dinner
Friendly staff. Shabby and not much worked in the bedroom - (hairdryer, aircon poor) and the shower was lousy
This has been my third stay at Don Angel and everything was excellent as usual.
Cheap rooms and good location in the heart of the city, close to shopping and some restaurants. Nothing memorable, but decent choice to spend a night. Rooms seemed a bit "worn" and not as clean as they could be. Bathroom fixtures leaked.
Central location, secure parking available at 10 euros per night.
Very helpful staff. The hotel car park was invaluable. You need a sat nav to navigate the locate the hotel in the maze of narrow one way streets.
the hotel is in a great location, just in the city center and a short walk from restautrants, bars, and shops The only thing missing is a parking lot big enough for all the clients, we had to pay our own parking at the near pubblic garage
very helpfull, especially the reception staff
Central location close to all facilities. Spacious room with plenty of storage space. Lively bar/cafeteria on premises. The hotel is located in a small square and any sounds outside tend to be amplified. This meant that the room was sometimes very noisy in the early hours, unless you kept the window shut all the time.
Location Very Noisy young guests on the same floor.
The location was convenient to the old town.
free wi-fi in around the lobby area; great location and only a 10/15 walk to the beach
Parking in premises. Minibar free (ie included) The hotel floors are a labyrinth and the walls are paper-thin. Gym machines are old and many are broken. Expensive
It was very easy to find, in a central location. The staff were efficient and friendly, providing us with information, maps etc All aspects of our stay at the hotel were fine
location,style, staff and price
Good location. Clean room. Good bathroom. Swimming pool was closed (season?). Breakfast mediocre ((cold coffee).
Nice and confortable hotel. There is no internet in the room as stated in the description. The hotel management deliberately puts incorrect information in the description. That's mad!
Feria, bullfights,drinks at the kiosco,Asador restaurant, staff helpful
The swimming pool was not clean on certain days.
The room was quiet, the bathroom large, the shower powerful and the dozens of tapas bars and restaurants in the narrow side streets around the hotel. Just a short 15 minute walk from Alcazaba. Driving and parking in Almeria is a nightmare, take a taxi from the airport. The hotel's map is unreadable, get one from the tourist office. We chose this hotel for the pool but it was closed for the winter.
comfort very bad knowledge of english
the outdoor pool the golf complex is soul-less
Cleanliness and the very friendly staff.
The hotel had a very good lkocation,overlooking the golf course and a good sight at the sea.Service was OK,but not up to a 5 stara hotel,as it was. To few english speaking staff !! No.
No entertainment on the xmas eve or xmas night
Pool area and staff The quality of food offered could have been better but there was plenty of choice.
The hotel in general was excellent, access to the beach was through the back door, and it was accessable to the majority of the ameneties within the central area of Roquetas de Mar, including many bars of which some served alchohol on a 2 for 1 basis. My only complaint against the hotel was that on my initial arrival in my room I could smell stale urine. It turned out that although the usual "sanitised/cleansed label was over the toilet seat, someone had used the toilet previously and not flushed it. The maids should have picked this up, when cleaning. Apart from that, I could not, and will not fault the hotel ! ! !
Useful as a base to explore the area of Almaria, Sierra Nevada, and Granada. Although the week was booked as Half-Board, we actually avoided meals a number of times, evening especially, and went elsewhere. Some of the food left a lot to be desired, and unless, like a lot of the older generation did, you formed a queue to wait for opening times to get the early portions when fresh it was not worth bothering with generally!
view from our room outstanding,cleanliness,food,2mins to the beach, location excellent
Lot' s of walking, taken the local buses to different places, and relaxed and chilled out no no complaints
Intresting designed hotel, breakfast good,1 bedroom apartment a fair size.
The rooms were well appointed with plenty storage and quality fittings, spacious and very comfortable. The food was very disappointing for a 4* rated hotel mostly catering for german/dutch visitors. We were looking forward to spanish cuisine in a spanish hotel....
Easy access to beech, shops etc Uncomfortable beds, ignorant staff (unless your Spanish) and scruffy dated rooms.
The hotel is located in a busy hotel area south of Roquetas. Swimming pool was good, the backdoor of the hotel is direct on the beach. We were here in october, but still there was an animation program. Near the hotel all kinds of shops and restaurants. Breakfast was good, we didn't use restaurant facilities in the hotel itself. The rooms are spacious and well equiped. We had no complaints during our stay.
Good location in front of train/bus station. Very close to supermarket and city centre. Friendly and helpful staffs. Breakfast did not match the price.
Good central location, pleasant staff whose language skills made our stay easier.
The food was great and the room quite large. Communication in English was limited to the receptionist at the hotel. The rest of the staff could not communicate well in English.
Staff were very pleasant and helpful. All spoke excellent English. The hotel is very quiet and centrally located directly opposite the Almeria train station. The room was a good size with attractive, modern decor and very comfortable beds. Although the hotel seems to have been recently updated, our room was showing signs of wear. Our bathroom sink was cracked, some of the furniture was scratched or dented, and one framed picture had dislodged from the matte and and fallen to the bottom of the frame!
The hotel was very convenient for the Station which is what we wanted. The Reception staff were excellent, and the rooms and lounge areas very stylish. I felt the tolietries offered were very basic and also the "free coffee" before 7.00 a.m. appeared to stop a little earlier.
Good hotel and a very enjoyable stay where the staff were very good and most helpful.

Courteous staff. Bright and airy reception area. Beautiful room with really comfortable beds and great bathroom. Nothing, it was really excellent.
Clean - quiet - space - well loctated within walking distance from center Not even light in the room - it is in many hotels - the only place where you really have light in the bathroom !!!
Location,near bus and rail links.Excellent buffet breakfast.Clean,tidy and good size rooms.Friendly and helpful staff. No tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms.
Staff were very helpful, rooms were lovely and very spacious. Not much public transport near the hotel. Had to use taxis alot of the time-though they were only a 5-10 mins ride to most places.
New hotel with clean rooms and modern finishes. Views of the mountains surrounding Almeria. Across the street from Mediterraneo Centro Comercial mall. Hotel is far from the city center. Parking in hotel garage is expensive add-on.
New comfortable hotel, lots of free public parking around, but you have to unload your luggage while being double parked on an intersection. Big mall nearby with food court. Extremely polite receptionist. Easy to find hotel by car (lots of signs and on big road) but not very near centre. Good hotel when you're by car. Excellent price/quality ratio. Not near centre, but by car only 10 minutes. No pool.
The friendly staff, particularly the young lady in the bar/resturant
Friendly and very helpful staff. Parking facilities were excellent, being attached to the hotel by elevators. Bar prices were rather expensive.
Good value , clean and smart. Quiet location for a single night stop over. Would stay again. No much English spken so phrase book came in useful. A little too far away from main areas.
The reception staff was really helpfull and nice, specially the man at our arrival in the night, always smiling!
service and cleanliness excellent The hotel sign on approach could be much clearer passed twice only spotted on coming up the main road
The room was comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. A little bit out of the centre.
Damp / smelly room.
The breakfast was not as good as I was expecting, and the coffee was left in containers getting cold, not in a percolator. i would recommend hotel but not the breakfast
Nice room, quiet and clean. Easy to park. nothing
Nice, clean room, modern throughout, wifi connection Bit noisy in the morning (traffic)
Good clean rooms and excellent location. Food menu not in English and no English speaking waiters
Most things I thought food in room service was poor.A fancy omelette was just eggs and nothing else.There was also no decaffinated coffee packets available
Very poor breakfast for a 4 star hotel. One night we had dinner and the staff didn't know if we had to pay it or not.In my opipnion it is not a 4 star hotel. Breakfast and they have to train better their staff.
quiet, clean, excellent staff, gourmet dining not walking distance from town centre - however public bus stop nearby
15 minute drive to airport, easy walk to city centre, quiet rooms, polite & helpful staff
We liked location not far from the sea. Quiet air conditioning, comfortable room, big balcony. Pretty big hotel located on the small area, no garden, no drive way to take out of your luggage. It's difficult to fine parking lot, so the hotel should provide free parking. Some sun beds should be thrown away.
Good facilities and ideal location
food quality excellent and well presented lack of a comfortable bar
We have stayed at the hotel before and have always found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The rooms are adequate and the location next to the playa and the golf course is perfect. The buffet breakfast and dinner are of a reasonable standard and excellent value for money We were staying for one night as a couple and for a further night as part of a golf society which had been booked separately. It totally confused the gentleman on reception and was only resolved when another receptionist, who spoke English, came in. I had explained it on my booking form.
The swimming pool area no
everything from cleaniness to helpfullness of staff to great food would have liked activities nothing on during the day
ideally situated, friendly atmosphere, breakfast very good, huge choice,had a birthday while there and a bottle of cava put in room not app
excellent location, very helpful staff, good prices even in the hotel's sbar/restaurant the air conditioning in certain rooms is right in front of the bed
Very centre-located although not easy to find free parking around. Free internet access at lobby (we did not use wifi-service) and friendly staff. We requested an extra bed for the child and to our surprise it is very comfortable!! Mini-bar is locked in the room.
near the city, bar, parking in front of the hotel (10 euros all day.)
excellant staff - location of hotel no
Helpfulness of staff and cleanliness of facilities.
a kettle and drinks making facility would have been nice. Air conditioning was noisy. fortunately weather not too hot but vibration did come through from other roooms when their ac on.
excellent location and very good hotel ,staff very helpful,would us again
The reception staff were very friendly and helpful with advise on parking and where to go. The location was ideal for us visiting for the Extreme 40 Catamaran Race which was walking distance to the harbour.
The location was excellent. I did not use any of the facilities. The TV channels were all in Spanish. The room was quite warm and stuffy, even though I turned the air conditioning down to 16 degrees, It made no difference to the temperature. The bed seemed to have plastic sheeting beneath the sheets which was quite sweaty and uncomfortable.
Our room was very clean and it had all we needed. The location wasn't too bad as it was easily reach by bus or even by walk. There is a shop next to the hotel and a car park. Everything was fine.
Friendliness of staff, large double bed
Rooms were clean and well stocked with all amenities. Parking under the hotel was handy, staff very pleasent, attentive and helpful. Breakfast was OK, although the cooked element looked a little under cooked! Sound proofing in the rooms was terrible.
staff very nice and helpful food could be better
Excellent space for a family of four. Very clean and the gifts for the children a very nice touch. Would use Tryp hotels again.
the location & price...ease of parking staff did not speak english
Good selection at breakfast Room very clean but tissues, shower gel, shampoo not replaced when they ran out
The hotel was "on-spec"; gave us what we expected, with especially good staff. We liked the hotel
The quality of the room for the price
Fiston a particulièrement aimé les jouets que l'hotel avait mis a sa disposition
Staff were not very helpful, it was clean and tidy but empty, not all advertised services available such as beauty clinic and WIFInot available as adverstised, the hotel was a few days from shutting down, this sadly was not made clear, very disssapointed as above
Comfort, scenery, breakfast, pool, access to beach
Hotel -gogd location, close to the beach, has loads of potential (but falls short in lots of little ways) Food was awful - little variety , poor quiality and presentation, Hotel didn`t appear fully open (founatins not on etc), internet is expensive (the 4 star next door is free), pool area lovely but no atmosphere (no towels provided)
excellent facilities nice rooms with good sea views no public smoking areas
the pool and spa areas are nice! the food was not great, in fact, my boyfriend felt a bit sick one night after dinner in the hotel. when we arrived at the hotel, the shower wasn't working and we had a bit of trouble getting someone up to the room to fix it. we requested a room with a double bed, and were told this wasn't possible. its expensive for a very basic room with 2 single beds pushed together. its the equivalent of jurys, more like a 3* than a 5*. staff weren't very friendly.
Very nice ambiance at the hotel and locality Sound of locals riding motor scooters at night and grafitti in sourounding area
The location was good and central in the square beside the Catedral with many bars and restaurants within a few minutes walking. Nice small hotel with friendly staff. Free internet in the rooms was a bonus if required. Spacious modern bedrooms with extra big double beds. Parking was expensive and the parking lot was very tight to get in and out of. The Catedral bell could be a little noisy although we never heard it at night whilst sleeping.
internet in my room with staff who would come to room to explain how to turn it on (used through television) no
very central but very noisey The room was very noisey no view just a brick wall over the kitchens.For a 4 * hotel not good.Towels were very old with holes in them.
Location, ambient, fittings & design, staff and food No but it was a pity about the staining on the floors
We enjoyed our stay. The staff were excellent , as was the food.
Extremely clean, calm and pleasant hotel, staff were helpful and informative but not intrusive. Situation of the hotel is superb if visiting Almeria.
everything, excellent hotel , staff couldn't recommend it more.
The jacuzzi on the roof was nice. Very interesting building. No
The staff were very cosiderate and thoughtful
i got a deal on a room from 215 euros to 65 euros and im afraid i thought 65 was too much for the room and breakfast, the breakfast was poor, the room was not of the quality it should of been for 215 euros and i felt cheated, but i enjoyed my stay, staff were nice and location was good, i think they made a mistake with the room ,
The kids loved the pool area and chess board and unfortunately we only stayed for a few nights, we had wished that it was a little longer
good breafast, close from the beach, good value for money standard of the room more correspond 3 star and not 4 star hotel
Well situated hotel with good facilities and spacious public areas. The buffet-style food is truly appalling (poor quality and frequently cold). The inddor swimming pool reeks of a smell of "drains". Don't be tempted to stay here by the attractively low winter rates.
Not alot The Bats living in the walls
the hotel was very nice but it was no good for people with walking problems it had a lot of stairs to go up and down to reach the beach you have to to go to the bottom and there was no lift to take you there the lift only went part way. you could go out the back way but it was a walk and for people like my wife this very hard. the pool was down a very long corridor so that was no good to her. if you are able bodied it would be no problem. the food was very poor for a 4star hotel.
A beautiful traditional Spanish hotel - breath-taking interior decoration - mirrors, tiling, wood carving & planting. Not your 'could be anywhere' 4*. Lovely indoor pool - I'm sure that disabled access must be available through the 'show cooking' area. Excellent breakfast. Different dinner buffet every night. The romantic 4 day break was outstanding value. Ask for a 2nd floor room - sunrise & beautiful views out across the Med. We found it best to go for an early dinner [6.30 - 7.00pm] - there was a tendency to bulk cook 'show cooking' early & then re-cook later! Not sure if that was a lazy cook or hotel policy but it effectively ruined fresh griddled meat & fish. Plenty of other choice, with a microwave if you prefer your food piping hot. Bathroom & bedroom furnishings a little tired, but still beautiful.
The pool facilities coupled with the weather The hotel is begining to look careworn and comparing the general facilities and condition compared to four years ago the economies are becoming obvious, particularly in the quality of the meals
facilities all very good
Typical **** hotel, much like the other Playa hotels. Comfortable, nice location and pleasant and efficient hotel staff. The pool looked nice, but the weather was rather fresh (it was end February); there is also a small indoor pool.
Relaxation only one english tv channel germans had eight
Everyone was friendly and helpful. There was a good mix of nationalities.
Pool area was nice but sun beds were dirty with bird poo did not like anything about this hotel, how on earth did it get a four star rating? I will never know. Our room was supposed to be air conditioned, the air conditioner was not working the room was as hot as an oven,tried phoning reception because of heat and also we were inundated with ants in the room we could not get a reply. The hotel did have a luxury foyer but that was all the rooms were shabby needed updating
the food was better than last years.It's a quite hotel We choosed,as we dis several times before for the "romantic offer" Each time we got a big room and 2 large beds.Now the gave us a single room (confirmed by inside people) and 1 small bed.Asking for another room/bed reception told us there were no other rooms (while the hotel was empty).If we payed 18 euro/night they could give us another room.One piece of soap for one week is not adequate.Hotel is understaffed.We always payed cash for our drinks (at dinner) but still they charged us 3 times on our bill.We advise the hotel management to read the reviews on their hotel because we find it's getting worse each year we stay in Capricho.Don't think we go back!
The variety and quality of the food. The ease of entry and checking at in at mealtimes. The restaurant staff, though busy, took the time and trouble to help one. The reception staff spoke English, even though I speak Spanish fairly well. Steps to the bar, as I have difficulty with steps and steep ramps.
good location, good hotel, very pleasant staff.
Excellent location for the local beach,bars,and restaurants.The staff were very courteous and deserve a lot of praise for all their hard work,that they obviously put in.
light airy clean room and a good nights sleep A little shabby and worn in places considering the price, more like 3 star than 4.
It was my holiday, so i tried to enjoy everything. They don't have Mojito, Cosmopolitan and Sex on the beach coctails in the bar.
Except the proximity to the beach and understanding of the management for our dissapointment norhing corresponds to what we've seen before booking. The room we've been put into was from the late 80's, sun beds around the pool have been "reserved" from 9 am, glasses & dishes in the restaurant were dirty.
The swimming pool, proximity to the beach, other children for my son to play with and the evening entertainment. Very poor quality hotel, dirty carpets, lots of items either missing or broken in the room, staff rude and unhelpful. Even the junior suite was very basic. Breakfast buffet was chaos and food poor quality. No service at all at breakfast. Very poor value for money.
Very little, only some of the reccepcion staff (Mª Jose) and the reccepcion area was confortable to sit, have a drink and smoke..! Most of it, the worst was the food and the room.
Very nice hotel, very large and spectular pool. Evening set and light on the hotel was very impressing. The room were smelly - probably Chlorin.
This hotel had a great family feel to it - it was perfect for a short break but as a non spanish speaker would have been difficult for a longer stay
Entertainment was to loud every night, could not get to sleep before midnight. I would only rate this hotel as a 3 star, bathrooms not very clean, shower broken, and rooms very small As above
The Hotel was in a great location,. but we where given one of the worse rooms tucked in a corner with no sun.. The Bar prices where to high
best hotel ive stayed in alemeria fantasic pool right on the beach as wellfood very good a bit the same though only thing realy was the caged birds in entrance hall
