From the time we arrived until our departure, four weeks later, the hotel staff went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. It would be invidious to single out any particular person since all the staff were welcoming and cheery, however the bar and restaurant staff went 'the extra mile' to provide a great experience. The kindness they showed to the disabled lady in our party was especially praiseworthy.
We spent a lot of time in the hotel, since we did not bring a car. The public areas were very comfortable and we were never made to feel 'in the way'. The bedrooms were comfortable, although the position of the mirror in one room and the rather unnecessary writing desk are minor criticisms. Mosquitos were a problem until we plugged in repellants. We slept much better after that. The rooms were immaculately cleaned every day.
Meal times suited us perfectly, particularly the late breakfasts. The breakfast buffet was well stocked with a variety of cereals and fruits, and eggs were provided to order. We didn't have evening meals every night but when we did they were excellent, although the wine list was rather limited. The charming chef was happy to stray from the set menus and cook us meals to order (given notice); the paella he cooked for me was superb, and the tapas selection was amazing. The dining area is largely glazed and has views out into the back garden, and the glass doors are movable to allow plenty of air into the room.
The hotel is very popular with locals and it was great fun chatting to them, even when we had communications problems ! Although the hotel is located 'out of town' it is only a short walk into Somo (easier going downhill into town than back to the hotel !!). Although only a short distance away from the sandy beach, it needs the agility of a mountain goat to clamber down the dunes !!
Overall, a lovely holiday in a very Spanish part of the country, with plenty of lasting memories.
