Great value, close to the beachPosted Jul 19, 2013
Pros: Value for money, proximity to the beach, interiors, nice big pool
Cons: Air con was largely ineffective, cocktail were a bit expensive for what you got
Location: Excellent location. Not far from a beach used mainly by locals, close to a nice strip of little shops and restaurants.
We booked it last minute and didn't know what to expect. We were VERY pleased in the end. A lovely hotel, with some obvious effort put in to the interior decor and the grounds. Lovely big pool and close enough to the beach. The places right on the beach looked much more run down and obviously rely on their location. This hotel is only a 5min walk through the pedestrian only market to get to the long lovely beach. Almost exclusively locals frequenting the area, which was a nice surprise. The hotel staff were a little hit and miss, some were great while others obviously didnt enjoy their jobs as much. I would suggest paying for the all inclusive, because the cocktails were a bit expensive if you pay-as-you-go. I would certainly go back again!

Great for Everyone. Definitely would recommendPosted Jul 8, 2013
Pros: The garden, spacious rooms, pool, enetertainment, daytime actuvities and breakfast
Cons: slightly springy bed
Location: great location, a short walking distance from the beach, shops and restaurants
We wasnt sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and tidy and all staff were friendly and approachable. They always said hello and were willing to help. We had booked breakfast which had lots of variety. The pool was always clean and had a life guard nearby. The gardens were stunning, really well kept and a joy to be in. Even though we were out most evenings- there was entertainment on every night from Flamenco to Magic shows. There was actually activities on during the day too which was fun. Overall it was a really good hotel experience. The only reason we are not giving it a "5" is because a couple of the beds were a little bit springy and the lamp light was out- but to be fair this was a major problem, if we had addressed it with them we're sure they would have sorted that out. Would recommend!

Great location nice hotelPosted May 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Even though the hotel is not the newest anymore we really enjoyed the stay. The room was and bathroom were big. The location if you are looking for a beach which is close to the airport just great. I can definitely recommend to stay in this hotel.

Great locationPosted May 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
Overall this is a fantastic hotel. Clean, tidy, comfy and friendly staff, from the front desk to the cleaners, English speaking on the front desk is of a very high standard. The hotel is about 7-10 minutes walk from the town centre, which is great for being away from the noise, but not too far if a mad night out is what you are after. The pool area is clean and tidy, however I recommend doing what everyone else does and take your towels down early, place them on the chairs, otherwise going down in the afternoon will be hard to find a chair that hasn't been 'saved' the Only downside and it is very minor, is the pool side bar, not much to offer in regards snacks and with no vending machine in the hotel I recommend popping to the shop across the road. As this trip was a romantic get away the hotel was spot on, bed was comfy, good size room, bathroom as very nice with TWO sinks!! Perfectly kept and very clean. Would stay again without a doubt

A nice hotel in need of some tlc!Posted Apr 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had an enjoyable stay at the royal al Andalusia. Check-in was a struggle because no-one spoke any English but thankfully our daughter is studying Spanish so we got through it ok. Our room was nice, spacious and clean. No complimentary water bottles in the room which is unusual for a 4 star. Breakfast was nice although no eggs on the first morning, only omelettes. Dinner was a bit disappointing. Not a lot to choose from and it felt more like a school canteen rather than a hotel restaurant. Overall, hotel is good value for money but I don't think we will be returning.
