Overview

An Andalucian retreat on the Spanish coast with breakfast, spa access, a late check-out, discounts and extras

The Lowdown

Take a step back from the daily grind and retreat into Spain’s unspoiled Andalucia region. Here, you can be one of the first to stay at the brand spanking new AMA Hotel Andalucia, which opened recently as a peaceful retreat in which to escape your daily routine.
Standing head and shoulders above your standard Spanish resort, this lovely haven is an oasis of good taste and well-being. Its signature décor is fresh and contemporary, with unmistakable Moorish influences. Luxurious rooms are crisp white spaces shot through with unusual art and warm throws. To really unwind, head to the amazing AMA Health Retreat: here you can indulge in some traditional spa pampering, or even go all out and explore the range of paramedical and medical treatments, as well as healing and revitalising programmes.
Gourmands will agree a holiday in Spain needs a large helping of fine dining, and the resort doesn’t disappoint. Al fresco dining is an option at each of the two restaurants, where you can tuck into dishes with Mediterranean, European and Asian influences. The cocktail lounge has an exclusive private club vibe, so make like a VIP and sip one of the delicious concoctions on offer, or enjoy the delicious wines the country is famed for.

Rooms

The modern hotel rooms are spacious and comfortable, and have a private balcony with views over the garden and resort. The cool white décor is broken up by stylish lighting, colourful throws and quirky art pieces.

Spa

The newly opened AMA Health Retreat goes a step beyond the standard massage menu, acting as a relaxing haven that also offers a complete range of paramedical and medical treatments and services. You’ll find a choice of preventative, healing and revitalising programmes, and wellness treatments alongside a menu of soothing spa treatments.

Dining

The hotel has two restaurants, each with a lovely terrace. Leave the diet at home and head to Fandado bar & restaurant, which promises a varied menu of tasty Mediterranean and Asian dishes in a cosmopolitan setting. Its cocktail lounge has a private club feel, perfect for pre-dinner drinks. The elegant ¡Ostras! Restaurant serves tempting local and international dishes with an intriguing twist.

Location

The hotel is just a half-hour walk to the southern coast of Spain. As well as some lovely beaches, the surrounding area of Costa de la Luz is packed with options for sports enthusiasts, including golf and kitesurfing.For a day out, Doñana National Park is an hour’s drive from the hotel and home to unique fauna and a variety of wildlife, from deer to wildcats. If you fancy ticking another country off your bucket list, cross the border into Portugal – the city of Faro is just 85 kilometres away.

We had a studio room which was huge, best hotel bed we’ve ever had.
Fantastic bathroom, very modern only thing missing was somewhere to place a wine glass. Great shower in wet room.
Safe, fridge, coffee machine(10 euro for coffee pods) and good hairdryer.
We were on a bed and breakfast basis, plenty to choose from but obviously over a fortnight it gets repetitive. Sometimes food was slightly cool but there is a microwave if necessary.
Hotel is lovely, nice pool area one of them semi Olympic. Loungers beside that pool are padded and a bit comfier than the others.
Very peaceful and tranquil.
There is a free mini train that keeps to a regular timetable that will take you down to the shopping area or beach.
The beach isn’t private but there is a section just for the hotel and if you show your band or key card that’s enough to get your loungers and shade.
Everything was fantastic with regards to hotel, staff worked hard and were friendly, hotel is immaculate.
Only downside and this is obviously a matter of taste..
Restaurants at shopping centre were of the fast food variety mainly, although there were a couple of nice ones. Most eating places don’t really open until 8.30 -9 in the old town(this is 20 min walk, downhill)
Last train back to hotel was around 8.15 from shops. So you either need to take a taxi(fare goes up after 10pm) or you can take the tourist train, this stops at the golf resort so it’s only 5 minute walk from there. 2.50 euro per person.

We visited the Italian lounge at the golf club a couple of times that was very good although service can be hit or miss.
We also visited Seville for the day, extremely long day so if your hiring a car do it yourself. Beautiful city and very very hot.
If you want a totally chilled out holiday with very little entertainment and love seafood this place and area is fantastic.

Tip..... add google translate before you come unless your Spanish is good, everybody tries hard, guests and staff in the area but sometimes deciphering menus could be tricky.

Good value for money

We stayed there as family and had a huge apartment with two bedrooms. It was clean and nicely furbished, the kitchen was fully equipped, with dish washer and washing machine, but had already a few traces of usage. Everything was clean, staff was very friendly, decent food with enough variation for one week. There were several pools, also an indoor pool, where we were allowed to bath with our little child. It was definitely off season so the price we got was excellent. There are great beaches nearby but due to the season the village was completely empty - nearly every apartment block was abandoned. This was a bit weird.
Nevertheless we had a good time and enjoyed the loneliness at the beaches.

Exactly what we wanted

We came here for our minimoon, after quite a tiring couple of weeks organising our wedding and sentido ama was exactly what we wanted. The apartment was great, the food was actually really good, the drinks were fantastic and we left really chilled and quite a lot chunkier than when we arrived.

The staff were the real highlight, greater waiters, superb bar staff and activities folk, and the magician was a 10/10. Would definitely return for some R&R!

Just returned from a peaceful and tranquil break . I had the all inclusive option in a room rather than an apartment which suited me as a solo traveler. A comfy bed awaits you and once awake a lovely breakfast will keep you going till long after lunchtime. Warm sunshine plenty of towels don’t take your own , free transport to the beach and shops . A 5 minute walk to the golf course . A perfect hotel for peace . If you like empty beaches to walk on at first light not a soul onsite for 90 minutes, they get busier at weekends and late afternoon when the locals arrive . Plenty of seafood for dinner and pleasant cold drinks .
