We were at a wedding here in May. Fabulous hotel, fabulous food, fabulous rooms and wonderful staff. The breakfast...best hotel breakfast I have ever had! Such an amazing selection and even a champagne/mimosa station. Would 100% return!
"A day out at the spa"
We did not stay at the hotel but popped in to see if they could accommodate 3 of us at the spa - from the lovely kind polite professional receptionist to the amazing massage to follow - this slowly became one of the best parts of our holiday. I had a massage with Alexandria who was amazing!!! Best massage I have ever had! I highly recommended. Spa facilities good too
"Not at all what we expected"
On arrival the lady on check in offered me various upgrades, managers specials and so on. We had a meeting at the hotel and due to delayed flight we were running an hour late. So I said to the lady at check in 'don't worry I will check in following our meeting. 10 minutes later my meeting was interrupted with another manager 'one off' today only special. I repeated my original request 'I'll check in once I have finished'! I attended the desk around 90 mins later and I was told I had a complete sea view room even though I had booked a standard, at this stage I just signed and went to the room!! The room was of course not a seaview room and after all the hassle was my original room!'!'! Previous reviews had claimed that the staff had made their stays well that was not the case to us. The lady running the bar during the afternoon was just rude!!! Read some of my other reviews I give credit when it is due she was just rude!! Couple of highlights - the breakfast outstanding and the young lady who sat us was really professional and had a sense of humour to boot.
"Valentine's Spa special "
Amazing day, everyone who worked there went out their way to make sure our Valentine's Day was very special. The facilities are excellent and the massage was the best I've ever had! We had the Valentine's spa offer and it was worth every penny. Thank you! We will be coming again.
"Superb hotel!! "
Being in search for the sun, we chose our holidays in Costa del sol and we booked at the Kempinski for 5 days. It's perfect and we couldn't ask for more!!! The location is just near the beach and it's convenient for a walk after dinner. The swimming pool is nice but at this time of the season there is only one heated. I tried the one not heated and it is cold as ice!!! There is also a swimming pool for children and we took our son playing there. Everything is made for us to feel comfortable and we would like to thank all the staff member for their warm welcome. The wifi is excellent and we can use it everywhere even at the beach.
