of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We visited the hotel during April and were impressed with both the hotel and the course we played (South). We were a group of 17 including golfers and non-golfers. The golf courses aren't owned or run by the hotel themselves although the South course runs right alongside the hotel itself. We were able to collect buggies from the hotel itself and drive up to the clubhouse to register and star on the 1st Tee. Early starters can begin on the 11th hole meaning you start and finish at the hotel itself but early does mean early! The rooms we stayed in were excellent with huge beds and a large bathroom and minibar. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but this is pretty usual in Spanish hotels in my experience. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurants but did use the pool and bar facilities where the service was always friendly and excellent although sometimes a little slow. The hotel is a 10 minute taxi ride from Puerto Banus and 15 ministers to Marbella where we mostly ate in some excellent restaurants. Overall a great time was had by all and we enjoyed out stay.

Info for Golfers If you are staying at the Hotel Guadalmina, don't have your own transport and are playing the local courses (North and South), then you would be recommended to pre-book buggies for each day you are there from the pro-shop at the hotel. We were lucky and found the small hotel pro-shop open, the lady very happy to help, the availability of buggies there and then (1pm in the afternoon) and the availability of buggies over the next few days too. Also that the golf pro was on his way back to the club house and could show us the way, as it's a 10-15min buggy journey from the hotel to the clubhouse where you find the first tees for both courses. Great hotel with a bar and good breakfast. Also able to book your taxis each evening to get into Puerto Banus to spend all your hard earned wages. Courses in great condition and we played the North once and the South twice. I would have liked to have given the North another go as that was my highest scoring round even though it is a little tighter than the South. Good resort and courses and wouldn't have a problem returning.
We got the idea to spend just few days during the Holly Week 2017 and now I am thinking that we should spend a life here. Nice people, excellent service, unbelievable food, spa and pool. Definitely I will be back and really very soon. Congrats to all GUADALMINA TEAM!!! Kisses and see you soon
"Excellent All Round"
We visit annually to have a short Easter golf break. The hotel is superb, with polite staff and clean and spacious rooms; the sun seeker's facilities are also high end. With two golf courses that play around the hotel and a further plethora of local courses to visit, the location is excellent. The golf is of a very high standard, if not quite championship quality, and the courses are very well manicured and maintained. Hats off to this well run establishment; special kudos for the introduction of freshly squeezed orange juice and Nespresso machines at breakfast.
Very nice hotel in Andalousean style. Golf and sea! Paradise for golfers. Very nice and efficient staff at reception. Beautiful rooms. But pool water early April is freezing. Spa not yet tested... tomorrow I will try the massage and spa. Nice breakfast view and standard choice. Food is ok, pizza delicious. For runners, you need to drive 5mn first.
