Comments:  I recently stayed at the Alfamar for a football tournament and first of all the football facilities were excellent and if it's all about location, location, location, this hotel is right up there with the best given its proximity to the beach. Service was good with a friendly and efficient reception. In terms of food, breakfast was a decent affair as was the dinner although in the latter case it was a limited choice (one of pasta, meat or fish) and a rather uninspiring side choice of veg. However, again, perfectly edible and hygienic. In all, great for a bunch of soccer players but maybe not ideal for a romantic break

Comments:  If you want a 5 star luxury hotel, this will not be for you. We visited as my husband was taking part in a football competition and for this, the venue was fine. The rooms are clean with no frills. There are no in room toiletries, kettle and so forth although there is a basic hairdryer (I suggest you take your own!). They seem averse to people using travel irons so if you take one, you'll need to hide it! The food is basic buffet, not that warm but adequate. The pool is nice and the beach lovely. The sports facilities are excellent and to be honest, this is why we went to this place. If that is not what you want, I would suggest that there are better hotels.

Comments:  A group of 50 of us travelled to Alfamar for a pre championship 5 day training camp. The management team were seeking a facility that was athlete/player focused with good facilities and excellent food choice and availability. Alfamar delivered exactly what was required. The atmosphere was ideal for our players as everyone around was either an elite sports person or elite level coach. The environment was set for our players to excel both physically and mentally in this purpose built facility. Going forward I do not see any reason why we would not make Alfamar our annual Pre Championship training location.
