Outstanding Customer service.
It was an amazing stay even though I was not able to use the spa. Breakfast and Dinner were both great! Kudos to the Lead Chef for having an awesome TEAM! Placed the "Do not Disturb" sign and left for work, but when I walked in, my bed was made and the room was clean. This happened the whole three days I was there. I just hope that they provided coffee and tea bags in the room.

Beautiful beach
We stayed during the off-season, and though the person at the front desk told us where to find lots of different restaurants, they were all closed. He also told us he was giving us free parking (he didn't), and said he would give us a deal on the hotel's buffet for dinner... but we're pretty sure that was still more than it should have cost. We ended up ordering room service (from a very limited menu) just so we could get dinner for less than 30 Euro per person. I do think it would be better in the summer. The hotel and beach are nice, the golf course looks pretty, it was very inexpensive. However, the bathroom door doesn't really close (there is about a two-inch gap between the door and the wall), the buffet breakfast isn't very good, and they didn't provide sheets in the room for the pull-out bed. The employees also don't speak very good English -- the attendant at the gas station nearby is about 100 times better -- but they insisted in speaking to us in English instead of Spanish, which I can understand and my traveling partner speaks fluently.

Great hotel and good food!
Perfect place for golf lovers! 5min walk from the beach. Amazing buffet and staff is really nice especially Pedro at the front desk! Room was nice with a beautiful sea view. Disaponted by Hotel.com description as no mention spa is at extra cost.

Costa Ballena beach trip!
We stayed for 8 nights. The room was rather small for 3 solo sleepers - me and my two sons aged 13 and 25. The shower sprayed all over the floor each time we showered, so that was kind of a bummer. The gift shop was only open limited hours on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The food was good in the buffet, but the hours of operation took getting used to for Americans - dinner started at 20;00. The beach is AMAZING and we spent a lot of time there. The pools are lovely, especially the child pool. On the weekends the place was quite lively, during the week quieter.

Reasonable short break - good for golfers
3 day relaxing break, not sure I would classify as 4* (looking rather tired) The Spar was pleasant and very reasonably priced @ 10 euros each, the treatments were not too pricey either.
