Arrival at the hotel went well, and we were given some sparkling wine while we waited to book in (nice touch). We had asked for a high floor main building and possible a sea view. We were given a east facing side view third floor Ideal!! (Not had full sun all day,suited us very well) The lifts were very responsive, and we were very pleased with out room. Decided to choose a later sitting for our evening meal, so we would not be rushed when going out for the day (especially to Gibraltar). This was our bargain trip. Cost us 12 euros each - 5% discount for O.A.P. rate from a little place near the hotel. As we had been three times before to this area namely Torremolinos/ Benalmadena this was our only long distance trip booked. We had 5 hours shopping in Gibraltar with a free raffle on the coach for some jewellery. Excellent value. As we have stayed in Rui hotels before (that's why we chose it) it lived up to our expectations. Very Good. Our only grumble was the quality of the meat section of the evening meal the first week, this was not there usual standard. By the beginning of the second week they had changed the chef and and everthing was back to their usual excellent quality and range of food. Their bar staff are excellent. They should send them to the hotel we had last year in Kusadasi Turkey, and teach them how to do it!! Everywhere in the hotel and pool area is kept very clean and our room was excellent. The area is served by a good bus service to Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Mijas and Malaga costing roughly 1 euro - 2 euro 50 single fares. Excellent. In all a very good relaxing holiday with beautiful weather.
