As a family we have been visiting Chinasol on and off for 35 or more years. Nothing has changed in all of those years, the decor, furniture and crockery remains the same, much to our delight. It's basic studio had everything we needed for a few days and was kept clean and tidy. Ideal as a base if you are wanting to eat out but have breakfast over looking the most perfect millpond sea whilst listening to the waves lapping the beach from the balcony. Quiet and easy access to the small but delightful fishing village and old town. We couldn't have asked for a better place to make many happy family memories over many many years. Both pools are beautiful and clean and overseen by a lifeguard.

Room Tip: Room 608 over looked the beach and sea and was quiet. I highly recommend having a sea view. Small twin bed room with kitchenette

Exceptionally good value for money. Great location right on the beachfront and with a pool area overlooking the sea. Highly recommended. Downsides are no wifi in rooms (but good connections in lobby), pool closed 15-17 and in the shade after 17. Not the most modern design of rooms but still functional and good. 4 elevators. Good service. I would not heistate to go back.

This Apartment-Hotel is closed to the beach, near Almuñecar city center and some available parking spaces at the road (free at winter time).
The building is a bit old but my room was renovated with a new bathroom with a shower, a kitchenett, a bed, a dinning table and also a sofa.
The bad points of this hotel is the fact it didn't had hi-fi at the room and the breakfast only had bread, cockies, butter, tea and milk!

Room Tip: Upper and renovated room

We first got an studio apartment with a very noisy refugerator, so we actually had trouble sleeping.
The webpage says every room has sea view, but that is only if you stand in the front corner of the balkony, leaning out.
The staff was very helpful, and let us change rooms to the seaside of the hotel, when they had one available.
The kitchen stove takes some getting use to, but worked fine once we could understand the instructions.

NOTE- there is no wifi in the rooms, and barely in the reception. We had to sit in the hotel restaurant every day to have connection.

The interior has not been changed since the 70s/80s, and felt kind of dirty.
The beds are uncomfy and old. There is nowhere to do laundury, even though the webpage said so.
They were renovating the poolarea, so there was a lot of noise, and the terracebar was closed... And it was impossible to hang here because of the dust and noise. No warning about this when we booked, and no discount because of this...

All in all, cheap place to stay- but you get what you pay for.

Pluss for very friendly staff, doing their best, and very close to the beach. And new elevators... But thats about it. :-/
