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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
How to Get There
We arrived,to a large and clean apartment, the room was noisy as we were on road side
well kept gardens and spotless communal areas
Our main gripe is the restaurant, which is more like a canteen, and the food very poor, with many flies flying about, and on food, so off putting that my wife never ate in the restaurant for breakfast or dinner, and only ate in the apartment, I ate a few times, but with no enjoyment...very disappointing as we are half board. And no other restaurant on complex as advertised!
The swimming pool is very depressive in black, and many flys on furniture
It looks like there is a fly problem on the resort, as we travelled all around the area within a hundred miles, and hardly saw any flies, and eaten in many restaurants out and about and no flies!!!!!
The kitchen is well equipped, with washing machine, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher, plates etc, could do with a corkscrew and bottle opener, tea towel and instructions on how to use microwave and dishwasher.
We were supposed to get wine and chocolates on arrival, but it was a bottle for one and nuts and a biscuit with some honey over it....
Not what we expect for 4 star hotel, won’t be returning
Stayed one night all inclusive off season and would highly recommend. Our 2 bedroom apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped. Check in was fast, helpful and friendly. Pool towels are provided which is handy and, prob because end of season, the place was not busy so it was very relaxing. The all inclusive is fantastic value as there are so many good options of drinks and foods- I was especially surprised and impressed that bottles of gluten free San Miguel were available and included as were a range of cocktails. At mealtimes we particularly liked the range of different fish dishes on offer but there was a wide selection of other things. You We didn’t make use of the hotel’s sun beds at the beach but do know that the beach at Islantilla and the promenade to La Antilla are both lovely.
It is a shame this has been such a short stay but we may try to squeeze a return visit into our tight schedule in the next few weeks (and before the hotel closes for the winter)
Had a great week at this lovely hotel. We were given a large 2 bedroom apartment with a lovely view over the golf course. We were on bed and breakfast basis and the breakfast really good. Lots of choice. We did eat at the buffet restaurant once which was excellent. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and pleasant. It was a bit of a walk to the beach but the little land train every hour was good. We made use of the free sunbeds on the lovely beach which saved us a few euros.
Would have been helpful if there had been instructions on how to use the oven and hob but as we ate out mostly it wasnt a problem. Very nice pool area always plenty of sunbeds available. Great pizzas from the pool bar. Will definitely be back.
