of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We stayed here for 5 days for my birthday and had a fantastic break. Some people will say the location isn't good but for us it was perfect in the middle of Puerto banos and old Marbella. 15/20mins walk either way. The hotel was lovely, very Andalusian! Everywhere was kept spotless, the rooms are so fresh! Pools are good but a little chilly. Staff are friendly enough. We was self catering and that was perfect as for me the hotel was to quiet to be HB or AI. If you go you must visit seasoul on the front one of the best paella and champagne I've had! We got a good bargain for the hotel and would recommend.
"A lovely holiday which ended in disaster"
We stayed in the hotel in April for 12 days. Apart from a senior waiter early in the holiday & all the way through, the stay in the hotel was lovely, relaxed & so good we were planning to return. Then 2 days before we were due to leave I asked for a copy of our bill, we always signed for drinks & food. 3 item's stood out. I asked at the reception for a look at these copies. One had 5 pint's added to the bill after I had signed for the original, another a bottle of wine & the 3rd, various drinks added.Plus I argued that the signature was not mine! We were refunded the discrepancies, but the atmosphere around some of the staff became awkward, the holiday went downhill from then. So much so that sitting by the pool the next day, my wife said 'I've had enough, I just want to go home'.
We stayed for 5 days in September. The room was very nice and roomy and a very nice patio. Every morning we enjoyed the breakfast, there was plenty of choices and the staff was great. The hotel is well located as we walked to Puerto Banus every day. Lounged by the pool one day - it was pretty crowded while we were there.
"Excellent 4 star hotel close to the beach"
We stayed for 4 days at the end of October and really felt at home. The room we had was spacious and had a comfortable bed and lovely balcony. There is a good pool and the beach is only 5 mins. We walked to Puerto banus and it took 15 mins. There is a good wet room facility with sauna, jacuzzi and steam room. The gym is a welcome facility but the machines need some addition/improvement. The staff were friendly and professional.
"Nice hotel with really helpful staff and healthy breakfast"
Right through our holiday the staff were friendly and the reception staff were exceptionally helpful and informative. They advised us on our various expeditions (providing free maps) and organised for us to start breakfast slightly early on the last day to ensure we caught our bus. I would really recommend asking their advice. The healthy options for breakfast are really good (can't say what their cooked breakfast is like other than my wife tried their boiled eggs and said they were delicious). I don't think I remember seeing such a variety ever. The room was spacious and clean, although showing its age in a couple of places - nothing off-putting. We were on the same level as the pool, which was handy as this was the main route out to the coastal path. The very open design of the hotel does mean that noise is a bit of an issue when the entertainment starts - there's nothing to deaden the sound. Although we looked at lots of options for our transfer from the airport (we decided not to hire a car) it was only apparent later that there is a bus (Avanza L-79) that goes from the Marbella bus station and stops directly outside the hotel. Combined with the bus from Malaga airport to Marbella bus station that is the cheapest transfer option. We did lots of walking - Puerto Banus is 15-20 minutes away along the coast and has lots of restaurants and very expensive shops. We also did the walk to Marbella - it took us well over an hour to get 3.6 miles to the centre. After walking around all day long (including Puerto Banus again for dinner) we were starting to get blisters. One final comment: we did a trip to Malaga (two buses required) and had a very pleasant day of sight-seeing except for a very close shave with a pickpocket. She had her hand inside my wife's handbag and very nearly made off with our credit cards prevented only by my wife's vigilance.
