"Nice hotel a bit dated"

"Lovely hotel shame about the drunken Irishmen"
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a week in September. The Hotel is very good indeed. Some previous reviews have highlighted the cold unheated pool and the fixtures and fittings being a little tired. This is true but did not detract from a lovely stay. We stayed in a deluxe suite which was an excellent 3/4 room accommodation with a great solarium and hot tub just for our use on its roof. The hotel is well organised and in general the staff were excellent with the exception of some of the pool bar staff who came over as rather surly. The restaurants in the hotel were excellent and provided a superb choice for both breakfast and dinner. The hotel is within easy walking distance of Puerto Banus marina with all its bars and restaurants but we rarely ventured out of the hotel such was the quality of the fayre on offer. My only criticism of our stay which we felt the Hotel staff should have nipped in the bud was a group of elderly Irishmen who for several days got very drunk and insisted on standing in the middle of the swimming pool with drinks in hand singing and shouting at the top of their voices. What for a few minutes seemed funny but stupid continued on and off for several days and went on to annoy most of the remaining people around the pool without any input from the hotel security or staff. Not expected from what promotes itself as a 5 star establishment.
"Good hotel; poor gym"
Please read this review if you are interested in the gym at this hotel as this is what I am focusing on. Good location; nice room; pool area well kept; friendly staff; very good half board option and food. Gym - located in a very small underground room above the car park area. No view to speak of. Very hot in the room and no way to adjust the air conditioning (we did ask but this was not actioned for us). Two running machines; one was not working for the week that we were there and the other made a squeaking noise but did work. Stack of free weights, some basic mats and a couple of leg machines; one elliptical machine and a couple of bikes. Quite basic and limited opening hours from 7am until 11pm. No water available which was disappointing. The hotel itself is vast and the size of the gym was very small in comparison. You could run along the promenade outside the hotel and along towards Marbella but beware of the people on bikes as the path is narrow and there is no speed restriction on the cyclists - I was nearly taken out on a couple of occasions.
"beautiful location and gorgeous Hotel"
our family of 3 stayed at this lovely hotel for 1 week in the October half term school holidays, bed & breakfast superior junior suite with pool and sea view and large terrace, just gorgeous and in a lovely location on the edge of the resort & bordering San Pedro. direct access on to the beach with hotel residents only free sunbeds and plenty of sunbeds around the pool. food was excellent as was the service from the staff. A lovely 10 -15 minute walk along the front to Puerto Banus. Will definitely be returning
Stayed for 6 nights, and had a great stay. The hotel and rooms are well appointed and the staff all very friendly. Reception staff very welcoming. Nice pool (albeit slightly cool in October!) and right on the beach. About a 10 minute walk into Puerto Banus, along the boardwalk, meaning you are close enough to everything but far enough away. The breakfast is excellent. Car park underneath hotel, or free on-street parking. Good gym.
