“Perfect Romantic Getaway!”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night, 2 days and everything was fantastic. From the service, to the food, and the cleanliness everything was perfect. This was also a hotel that had ultimate relaxation- rarely saw kids, and everyone was quiet & courteous. Overall an excellent stay!

Reviewed 9 June 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 8 nights & we had rather hurriedly made the booking the day before we left. I usually do the head wrecking TripAdvisor searches & read all the horror stories first!
This hotel popped up quite high on the ratings so I decided to stick with that brief evaluation.
We had a very nice welcome at reception, check in was friendly & efficient, we were able to get our room prior to 12 noon which was nice.
The pool area was nice with the little ponds with Koi Fish & Turtles too.
We ate a few lunches by the pool which were nice, very simple but nice.
The rooms were older style but kept very clean & fresh.
It was a nice 10-15 walk to Puerto Banus along the beach or €7 in a taxi. The restaurants in Puerto Banus are overpriced for the most part, only the American cuisine type places are appropriately priced for what they are serving. The other complaint about PB was the constant bombardment of sellers of fake luxury goods. The town needs to eradicate that.
Back to the hotel. The poolside waiter service was good & it was a pleasant place to be.
One issue I had in the hotel was the price of a bottle of water, €3.80 for 500ml, the same bottle in Aldi across the road was €0.17! 200% mark up is insane! High prices for other beverages I can understand just not the water.

One other suggestion for the hotel would be to stamp out the practice if holding sunbeds by the pool for the whole day & not using them. Implement a system where a card needed to be placed on the bed to hold it for up to 2 hours. Guests could go to towel desk to get a "hold card". A simple coloured card scheme would make it easy for hotel staff to see which ones were over limit if colour if card was changed 4-5 times depending on time of day.

Overall however it was a pleasant stay & I would consider using the hotel if I was to return to the area.

it is a good hotel and well maintained hotel with very nice rooms, nice swimming pool and beach club, good food and nice people ; the price/quality relation is in balance but the hotel is situated directly on a very busy 4 lane road , there's a lot of traffic noise and it is difficult to get some sleep ; almost all the hotels on this road have the same problem.

Room Tip: as close as possible to the beach on the poolside

Driving up to the hotel and it shows a little bit of class, Koi and turtles adorn indoor and outside ornamental pools. The check in staff patient and helpful.......There was free parking out front or you can pay to park in the underground car park.

The room was clean and spacious with plenty of storage space. A bathroom with large bath and shower and double sinks.

It had a small balcony which was pleasant in the evening, but ours overlooked the road.

The hotel has a pretty pool complex which wasn't very busy whilst we were there due to inclement weather, and a small stretch of beach that didn't look overly comfortable. We had our complimentary drink at the beach pool area and drank there in a very pleasant area watching the sun set.

Location wise it is a 10/15 min walk to Porta Banus and a ten minute drive to the centre of Marbella.

The main complaint was the sound of the water falling into the pools outside our door, this was stopped overnight but started in the morning

Didn't eat at the hotel but for as a hotel and its location we can recommend it and it is good value for money

I really enjoyed my stay here the staff were very friendly, the food was good and priced well. The location was great a short stroll (20mins) from puerto banus (10 mins if you were doing a nice pace), on the beach, the pool area was very clean and the beds very comfortable. We went in April and weather was lovely and accomodation priced very reasonable. Only complaint was room we were in (overlooking playground) had no sun day or night and this was disappointing. In saying that I was with a group of 7 and we were all close together so I didnt even ask to be moved so if I had it may have been sorted.

The breakfast was fab and must be tried they had everything on offer and it was delicious.

Would recommend this for all adults but not for children.

A very nice hotel next to the beach and only a ten/15 minute stroll down the prom into Puerto Banus. About 6 euro in a cab and about 10 euro to Marbella town. Hotel is of a good standard, found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful, Breakfast excellent. Nice Pools. Rooms decent standard, we upgraded to the Top suite for our last night which was fantastic overlooking the sea.
There is a beach bar and restaurant which is part of the hotel which has another pool and cool relaxing seating areas.

Room Tip: all rooms of a similar standard unless you upgrade to a suite, if you are not bothered about overloo...
