We spent Easter there and with 7 people from 2 to 75 we could not have been better looked after. We stayed on one of theClub floors which will give you an amazing view, a complimentary all day buffet, snack, wine. And free wifi in the lounge which is great as they charge 50euros a day normally. Breakfast is amazing and very child friendly. They arranged egg hunts etc and made the children feel very welcome. It is very large and slightly corporate but it is well run, lots of nice little detials like flowers etc, the little club on the 1st floor is nice they have a dj on the weekends and it is nice and laid back. We ate at Enoteca and was dissapointed but perhaps it was just us on that perticular night. I also had a great massage in the Six Senses Spa which was great. All in all a very pleasant stay!

Room Tip: Views towards the W hotel (south I believe) is better than the other way

Nothing is perfect but the Arts Hotel tries its best to disprove that idea. From the warm welcome by the bell boys to the check in staff, the restaurant waiters, bar staff, pool staff, room cleaners, nobody could be faulted with their attitude or appearance. All staff appear to be multi lingual and proud of their hotel as well as being very good at anticipating your needs.

The rooms are excellent, roomy with superb views, whichever side of the hotel you are allocated, provided with high quality bedding and towels.

It is not cheap but it is certainly worth spending these prices for this level of service and comfort.

My only small issues would be no free wifi in the rooms which should be an essential these days in a hotel of this class ( you can get 1hour free wifi in the lobby each 24 hours but the lobby is generally busy and not convivial for working on a lap top).

All rooms have b and o CD players, which were great 10 years ago, but are old hat now and should be replaced by ipod docks.

Lastly there should be English newspapers available, ( Financial times is provided) but all other papers are Spanish whereas the clients seemed to be at least 50 % English speaking when we were there.

Overall the best hotel I have stayed anywhere. We will return.

Room Tip: The higher the better but all rooms have good views.

We stayed here for 9 days. Very nice hotel. We were there on Marriott points and were upgraded to a suite which was spacious and lovely. Also included free wifi which was a nice perk. The main bathroom had the best shower we have ever experienced. Room views were fantastic! Ask for a high floor; it seems the most popular clubs are on the beach right next to the hotel. The partiers are out in full force until 4 - 5 am. We were on the 20th floor and I could still hear their revelry every night when the clubs let out. The service is excellent; at times comical the way they fall all over you to do things like push the elevator button for you! The young men at the entrance are very friendly, pleasant, and helpful when calling a cab and welcoming you when you return. If you don't eat breakfast at the hotel, the next block over has a wonderful place for breakfast/or a late snack. Very reasonable, delicious coffee, and great food. We did not use the pool but it we checked it out and it was very nice. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Higher floors are much quieter.

This property gets a very good review only because the room was so nice and the view fantastic. The reception desk was disorganized staffed by very young and attractive people that were confused at best. Getting the baggage delivered to the room took several phone calls. Not what I would expect from a Ritz-Carlton managed property. Also sleep interrupted by beach party or disco until 3am.
