food was good and we would recomend to friends
The hotel had all the facilities that you would expect of a four star rated hotel, and we would recommend it.The food provided was plentiful and varied, of buffet style, but occasionally found to be luke warm. However, my wife and I enjoyed both the food and accomodation. The only critisizms was that the carpet on the corridors serving the hotel rooms were a little shabby and threadbare in places and in need of replacement. Sky TV. only showed one british chanel.
We were playing bowls and sightseeing Self service restaurant
Terrible food. Terrible beds, no support Poor quality of food,and cold and unappetizing. We left 2 dats early!
Swimming pool was very good and the evening meal buffet was good quality and vast selection. It was more of a hotel geared up for the spanish holiday makers and not really international. Bar service was slow and the matresses not very comfortable.
the service and food were all exellent , and have told friends about it , we are looking forward to returning very soon . was a little too far from bars ect , other than that it was perfect.
The relaxing atmoshere and the room, after we had transfered Being asked to leave the bar at eleven p.m.and not happy with the service at the bar
The food was excellent and the hotel was generally very good, but we stayed at the Best Hotel at Benalmedina last year and expected the same extremely high standards. However, there were hundreds of very noisy older people at the hotel which rather spoilt it for us.
We had a lovely room with a huge bed and it was nice and clean.the beds were a bit hard but they are never the same as being at home.If we come back down to Majacar I am sure that we would stay with you again. Unfortunately we found the food in the resteraunt was not very hot.The good thing is that you do have a microwave so that we could warm it up.
Lovely location and great value for money, staff were helpful and friendly! Just that there was no room service for food or drinks and no kettle to do our own drinks.
Good food & facilities
price cold food
slept and ate as weather was not good enough to use outdoor facilities no tea and coffee making facilities
very friendly staff , great facilities , position was perfect very little , if any road noise . overall although a little on the large size would stay again . food was a little bland , and could have been warmer
food cleanliness staff
The staff were very helpful and friendly and the hotel was very good value for money in a pleasant location.
Location Our second visit - not as good as the first. Had asked for room with a sea view but got room on the right side of the Hotel as you look at the sea - no sun on balcony all day and had to sit on the balcony to get a glimpse of the sea. The hotel is doing building work - loud drilling banging starting at 8.30 in the morning and going on until 8.00pm. This is totally unacceptable and does not make for a relaxing stay. This is supposed to be a four star Hotel - should the minibar really be empty. Also charged on arrival - get the feeling the management do not really trust their guests.
Sea View Minibar was empty - not good enough for a four star Hotel. The Hotel charged my credit card on arrival. This is unacceptable. Food, especially dinner buffet was always cold.
We liked the comfort of the room very much, and the food was excellent. The barman was a little unpleasant and the selection of wine in the bar limited, only one choice of white.
Service and assistance received from hotel, restaurant, bar staff The cleaning department uses aerosol sprays extensively; it caused allergic reactions and I know they damage the ozone layer; they should discontinue using them.
Very comfortable and excellent VFM as half board. Food was not a la carte but very enjoyable. Bar prices also very reasonable for a 4* It is a large hotel and our room was a long walk from reception with luggage. Unfortunately no bell boy was on duty to assist.
Very nice place to stay. Excellent food and great swimming pools
the staff the tv was not tuned in
The food was very good and the pools werenice and clean
3rd vist in 12 months - all facilities including the golf.
Great location. Very nice staff. Wonderful room view. Hard to find as no signs in town.
This is a ultra-modern hotel with very friendly staff and lots of open spaces. It is only 10 minutes walk to the centre of the beattiful Las Negros Villages which has a fantastic setting and a few good bars and seafood restaurants. It is an idylic place to visit and the hotel is in a convenient but quiet location. The hotel is almost impossible to find because it is not in the centre with the other hotels and there are no signs anywhere and no obvious street names. We had to ask 3 times. On entering Las Negros you come to a large roundabout. Take the 1st exit, up a slight hill and the hotel is 300m on the right at the north end of the village.
The service was excellent, the location was great (free street parking) and breakfast timetable was extensive so we could sleep in. Breakfast quality was fantastic. I recommend the spa facilities.
Food excellent I did not like the way everything in the hotel was geared towards the spanish I was under the impression that it was an international hotel we all pay our money and should therefore receive the same treatment but this did not happen I realise it is spanish staff and lots of spanish guest but your staff need to learn to be unbiased and in my opinion would not reccomend to english people
Roomy, modern and aesthetically attractive. Close to the beach which looks like an exotic tropical beach ahead of the Costa del Sol for example Poor reception. Slow and failed to use our debit cards correctly and had to pay cash which they were a bit reluctant to accept. Cards subsequently worked correctly on a cash machine they did not use alternative methods of using them. Companion's booking directly with them failed to show up on their computer and he had to fill in forms there and then. Expressed his disappointment to me.
The whole experience was very nice and although we were there for just two nights, we will definately return for another short break. The balcony of our room overlooked the gardens and pools of the hotel and some one hundred metres away was the beaches and the Mediteranean: wonderful. We are sure that we will not be the first to comment on, not a complaint, the fact that the hotel was too far from the nearest bars to walk to and the hotel bar was too big to have any real atmosphere
It a mixture of nationalities not jus English.Very friedly people
The position of the hotel was good, but not much to do if you didn't have transport, plenty of sunbeds, comfortable room, friendly staff. The food was cold, and the service in the restaurant was poor, not clearing tables ect.
The room was excellent, beds were large and comfortable. The food service was very good with lots to choose from. I have two complaints, firstly we had to wait for in a queue for an hour and a half to check in, we finally got to the desk to be told our room wasn't ready for us, even though this was now 2 15p.m. and the room was supposed to be available at 12p.m. The only other small thing is that the location of the hotel is only surrounded by other hotels, no bars or shops. At the time of our stay there was no entertainment provided and bar was closed by 12.
Good size of room, clean and good facilities. Close to the beach. Buffet meals good, something for everyone. Good value for money.
Location, food Having to pay as soon as I arrived, no where in the world takes payment beforehand. I wonder if the Spanish had to pay in advance as well? I think not.
The bathroom was beautiful and the products were of high quality. The staff were very unfriendly and when we tried to book at the restaurant for 2200 they looked horrified, so we went somewhere else.
location at beach and general atmosphere of Mojacar Playa region as a resort area and the November sunshine . Excellent hotel restaurant. very good breakfast Impersonal; nobody at desk or in Restaurant ever asked the usual " is everything alright " or " are you enjoying your dinner ". Service of Coffee at morning buffet is not satisfactory; slow, cold.
The location The Parador is an old hotel whose customers tend to be mainly Spanish and we felt at times ignored when requiring waiter service.
A quiet (while we visited during October), well designed, modern hotel with all the facilities that could reasonably be expected for a good quality hotel in its class, with friendly and helpful staff and good buffet breakfast.
location, good parking,near beach and nice aras to relax in resturant very expensive, compared to local resturants. room not as shown in advert,still pre renovation.
Very good service, very comfortable room and bathroom. Excellent breakfast. In fact excellent for everything. N/A
Staff very professional and helpful. Hotel quiet and well run. Nothing.
Very close to the sea. Has sea view almost from every room. Good restaurant. None.
my door wouldn't stay shut without being locked. No safe in room (door missing - and not previously advised). Television did not have the full set of channels in either of our two rooms. Restaurant / bar service was surly - and for the pool, non-existent. Price of wines was far too high for Spanish restaurants.
Jacuzzi bath tub & the beach facing balcony. The access to hotel. To walk all the way up without any vehicle assistance.
Lovely 'designer' hotel with all mod.cons. Very comfortable bed, fantastic views and very nice pool. Friendly feel. A bit too much design rather than comfort. Nowhere to put case but on the floor or bed. No door on bathroom, ok for us but not for everyone. Perfumed air is fine unless you have asthma like I do, I had to hold my breath at times.
The hotel was very new and had a very interesting design, lovely athmosphere, very nice swimming pool and sunbathing area and offered a lot of relaxing activities. The staff were extremely friendly and one felt very welcome. We were disappointed with the village as it was right beside a cement factory which also spoilt the otherwise lovely seaview. The village was a little rundown. The best about the location is the national park nearby and this hotel.
This is the friendliest hotellstaff I have ever met.The hotel was new in June-09 and immaculate to day.Very big terassa with jacuzzi ,bathroom with jacuzzi.Restaurant a la carte with superb food.We will come back here !!
The hotel is modern and really nice but there is nothing around the hotel. you will need a car to go to other towns. the location is on the outskirts of town
Very friendly staff, relaxing atmosophere Some occasional noise from work in adjacent building
Great view and nice pool. Helpful staff though they had poor English. Refused access to the spa. Staff didn't speak English well.
The accomodation and services are very good! Staff and personel are very customer focused, friendly and helpfull. It is like coming home!!! Breakfast buffet very extensive and of excellent quality. Restaurant for lunch and dining: same very good quality. Overall: value for money. One thing to improve: staff is only speaking spanish, very hard to communicate in english.
We liked the hotel facilities, and the fact that parking was available on site. I especially liked the bathtub, too - with the water jets. Very relaxing. The staff were very kind as well, and accomodated some special requests of ours.
The location of the hotel is great for peace, relaxation, hiking...in the middle of the country, but close to the beach with beautiful views. We found some big bugs in our room. The walls were very thin and we could clearly hear the guests in the next room.
The hotel is very nice and the view is amazing. On't forget to book the beach view !!
The surrounding scenery is spectacular. Hotel is nicely and comfortably furnished in minimilist style. The sunrise on the sea is not to be missed. Very romantic and 'get away from it all' place. Our room was littered with dead and alive bugs that were the size of a cent. As the receptionist did not speak any English we just binned them and gone on with it! Pool not in use even though it was ideal weather for a swim. Do not think hotel is worthy of 4 stars.
excelent location in the middle of nature. Beautifull vews from your room and the sea at 15 min. walking. Silence !!!!!
It is so remote if you want peace and quite. Great views all around you. Good food and very nice rooms. the directions to the hotel wre not very good at all. try google maps or tom tom and you end up 50 km away like we were. they need to make a big point that they are near san jose not almeria. no hard standing for motor cycles to park just soft gravel like the very long drive way so not very bike friendly.resturant staff spoke no english and no english menus. so bad in fact could not even understand 'beer' Take the trouble to find it though and you will be rewarded with fantastic views.
The rooms are nice, spacious and decorated with taste. The bed is very comfortable. The staff is not very friendly.
The hotel is in a quiet and secluded area, and it was very peaceful there. I loved it!
Beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, very simple but stylist room and bathroom, short drive away from some lovely beaches, quiet and untouristy unlike many areas of spain. Was not informed that the advertised hotel pool was actually closed and is only open for a few months in the summer, hotel staff speak very little english, when paying at the end of the holiday the card machine would not accept any of our cards so had to drive to San Jose to get money out in order to pay, hotel in general a bit overpriced.
location and facilities very good. variety of meals
A comforable well appointed Hotel, friendly and helpful staff, good location close to beach, only a short stay but very enjoyable.
The location was ideal for my requirements. The hotel was full of very noisy Spanish pensioners. The food was plentyful, but bland and repetittive.
Close to the beach, quiet, great views, nice grounds, good sized rooms. although a good variety of food the quality was poor ,some of the hot food cold or part cooked, but salads were fresh. poor TV reception, No WIFI internet.
We arrived at a busy time but reception staff were pleasant and efficient. The buffet style restuarant provided a good variety of food both at breakfast and dinner. There is also a grill producing very good,freshly cooked meat and fish. Restaurant staff friendly and efficient. Although cleanliness was very good, the hotel looked a bit tired and would benefit from some refurbishment
Good position on beach excellent views from rooms No kettle or tea making equipment in room
The food was excellent. Staff very friendly. Location very good. The hotel is in need of refurbishment. The shower head was hanging off the wall and there was a bad odour from the bathroom all of the time. The floor was not clean, either in the bathroom part or the bedroom and it was not mopped the five days we were there.
I have stayed at this hotel twice in two years and I can't compliment the staff more for the friendly and efficient service that we received. The hotel is used by spanish holiday makers, which adds to it's charm and atmosphere, you won't find any yobs here! The hotel is well used and is very clean (cleaning staff are lovely!!) the is food excellent and again the staff are brilliant. Location is great just opposite the beach and Mojacar is a lovely but quiet and reserved resort. All in all good value for money and we will return again, a great hotel.
Shower was boken, but was repaired immediately. Hot buffet food was always cold, eg. English breakfast.
We really enjoyed our stay, the staff were very helpful and the booking in and out of the hotel was stress free. We didn't eat at the hotel so cannot really comment about the food. The room was very spacious and clean. The kitchen was small but well equipped. All the rooms are facing the sea and it was lovely to take in the views from the balcony which again is very spacious. The pools were a bit too chilly for us to use but looked well maintained and the areas surrounding the pool were clean and tidy. There was nothing that we didn't like but a toaster in the room would have been a bonus for us as the grill on the microwave took such a long time to brown the toast.
food was very basic .rooms very good.no wi fi .
We would return but not high season, we enjoyed the hotel being half empty for most of our stay.The staff were very helpful and responded very fast to our requests. It was good value for the money,the room lacked a lot of basic necessities ie cups, bowls,sharp knives,etc.Perhaps a small welcome Pack would have been helpful [milk coffee tea washing up liquid etc]after a long day traveling [arrival at hotel 22;45hrs].The apartment was not comfortable and it looked old and worn considering it is a relatively new construction.
clean and value for money ,we will stay again ,a big thank you to all hotel staff . we had a two bed apartment and found the second bedroom very dark
With self catering option, got a one-bedroom apartment with basic cooking facilities, large balcony and sea view in a 4-star complex for only 28 euros a night for 2 people. The 3 small independent bars opposite the hotel were very friendly, offered good food & were cheap. The quiet location at the western end of Mojacar suited us, but may be too quiet for others.
Location and staff No tea and coffee making fascilities and no English TV and no availability of food and drinks in the evening
Great people, Lovely breakfast, Clean rooms,Close to beach, Private parking nothing
very friendly hotel directly opposite the beach
Very helpful owner (juan) I would stay there again
The staff were exellent and ever so friendly.The breakfast was better than I have received in Hotel's with a much higher star rating. They cooked a full English Breakfast fresh to order each morning and all the other usuals were on offer. We used the hotel as a touring base and it fit the bill perfectly.
the food and the friendliness of the staff no
Earing in mind the excellent inclusive breakfast the value for money was superb.
We found staying there convenient for our requirements. It was OK
The Breakfast was first class
Comfortable, clean, with a friendly and helpful owner. Although overlooking road the excellent glazing kept any noise to a minimum. Great extra touches:bottled water in room, toiletries and white towels in bathroom. Excellent value. Nothing to say!
Very pleasant staff. Very helpful and friendly. We liked it souch we have booked again
Very beautiful location. The owner was friendly and helpful with lots of information about the area. Quiet, off-the-beaten path, excellent food, comfortable bed and good shower!. Nice change of pace after hotels in the big cities.
A hidden gem in the hills! The cottage we stayed in was very tastefully decorated, had a wonderful rain shower and a lovely view. A truly tranquil place to relax and unwind.
The location was excellent for accessing the nearby natural park of Cabo de Gata. The town of Nijar was within walking distance and very well served with shops, restaurants etc. We visited over Christmas and the food was excellent, with a very good choice of breakfast dishes.
Loved the hotel! We spent the last 3 days of our holiday, visiting the spectacular nearby beaches in the nature reserve Cabo de Gata. I couldnot have made a better decision. The pool has a decent size, which is important to me. Staff is extremely friendly and makes you feel at home.We arrived after midnight (but no complaints) and were immediatly invited to use the swimming pool and have a glass of wine next to it.Very much enjoyed the magic of the location, the hospitality of the staff and the wonderful breakfast! Ten out of ten. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
The breakfast, the scenery, the beauty of the place
Typical andalucian style ... excellent food very sensitively prepared by johaness the owner No
We liked the location and the atmosphere. The setting for fantastic and the attention to detail with the Moorish design of gardens, waterways etc., was excellent.
When we arrived we were invited for a lovely meal although we didn't subscrive in advance. Our room had lovely atmosphere, de bed was good, floor-heating a relaxing douche, privacy. At 31 decembre we joined a great meal, very well cared, with a very cheerful international company and had a lovely evening. We went to nice coast (Cabo dia gato), to the mountains and Granada. The hotel is outside but close (walking distance) to a nice village Nigar. The people of the hotel are very friendly, easy-going and helpful.
