of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
My partner and I booked a late deal using voyage privee, we had 4 nights bed and breakfast at the Guadalmina Spa & Golf resort for £377 including flights. Upon arrival we checked in at around 1pm, the front desk was very polite and welcoming and phoned to check our room was clean as we were early, however the room was ready for us to check in. We were placed in room 120, bright and airy, clean and tidy. We had a lovely large bathroom with his and her sinks, and spacious room with a balcony. The grounds to the hotel and resort are stunning and well maintained. Breakfast was quoted as 7am until 11am, however as we were up early in the first morning of our stay we went for breakfast, but the restaurant didn't open the doors until 7.30am. I don't know if this was an oversight or breakfast starts from 7.30am. However once inside, we sat along the veranda of the restaurant with gorgeous views over the pool and sea, fabulous start to the day. Breakfast had plenty of choice, breads, cereals, fruit, yoghurts and pastries. As well as hot bacon sausages eggs tomatoes and a chef onside to make fresh omelettes. Coffee tea juices and champagnes, made breakfast by far the best meal of the day! For our short stay this was a fabulous hotel with great facilities and service. The only downside that I could say is the distance from Puerto Banus, which wasn't too far, €10 taxi approx but that's only a small complaint because the location was second to none for views and scenery, and you just wouldn't get that closer to the centre, do not a complaint of mine but for information for those looking to be close to the busier parts, this is quiet and picturesque. Definitely would recommend!
"A Beautiful Setting and Brilliant Staff"
We were on a 3 night Voyage Prive deal and were allocated a ground floor room (No17) overlooking the garden with an oblique sea view. It faced East so we had glorious sunny mornings to waken us. The immediate approach to the room was via a "sunken" corridor and was unprepossessing but the room itself was very nice and proved comfortable and up to date. We were able to use the patio and could access the sea front / hotel from there if we wished.The bathroom was spacious and well stocked. The water was very hot which was great but do take care! The room service was excellent. You might consider an upper floor with balcony and sea view for a longer visit and a little more style. A room nearer the main hotel area would probably have better wifi reception if that is important to you. This is very much a golfers hotel and other reviews explain the location is a bit isolated and may not be for you if you want to stroll out to a shop or restaurant. It is however a delightful place to relax and soak up the sea and sun. The swimming pool is amazing! We did have a couple of large and fairly noisy golf groups staying at the same time as us but it was to be expected considering the nature of the resort. The facilities within the hotel are good and we ate in the restaurant each evening. The food we had then was certainly beyond our expectations. The breakfasts were excellent and though we did not try the beach restaurant at lunchtime the menu and the dishes we saw being served were very very tempting! We had a lovely 3 days and have to sing the praises of the staff who were ALL so friendly and helpful. I would particularly like to thank the gentleman on Reception who promptly and effectively assisted us with a number of requests.
"Excellent Hotel....there is a tiny but...."
Readers..........this is a great hotel, with great service and the rooms are fairly good but the location is not close to any bars or restaurants. You will need to spend a lot on taxi money! Be prepared when booking. However if you like quiet ambiance.....then this is your hotel
"Better than average golf hotel"
Stayed here for 3 nights and shared a twin room that was bright and clean - room 40. However the shower is nothing less than dangerous as the water flows out to the toilet so it is treacherous - if this was in another country there should would be a claim ! Breakfast was good and the golf on the North course was better than the South course - word of warning - the tees are a 5 minute taxi drive from the hotel ! Despite the above - it suited us fine...
"Top notch "
I'm being harsh but while this hotel is amazing, it's not near much in the way of nightlife. So if you're up for a night on the booze, you're looking at going 5km to a nightspot. Again, very harsh but I'm with a tour group and would loved to have been able to walk around and see some bars rather than take a cab. This place is right on the beach with stunning views. The rooms are well appointed and the restaurant is excellent. No idea on price as it's included in my tour, but if you're looking for a luxurious and quiet spot on the ocean, this would fit the bill. I found the Wifi to be a bit patchy.
