“Great hotel and location”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Stayed in the hotel on 1st June in a Junior Suite as we were travelling with our 1 year old. We wanted to be able to put him down for his midday nap and still be able to sit on a terrace or relax in a different room without the worry of disturbing him. The room was very well kept, in excellent condition, had a separate bathroom, dressing room, living room and bedroom, all of very good size.

My only criticisms - 1. when we arrived, as planned, our room was not ready. This was particularly difficult as there were no spare rooms for us to change into other clothes, swim wear etc or for our son to have a lay down. We were shown to the Spa rooms and told we could use them to change and hold our bags. Not brilliant but they did come up with a solution.

2. When paying the best part of £2000 for a room I would've expected to have free wi-fi in our room.

The staff were extremely polite and would do anything to help. The food was good and drinks to your sun lounger around the pool were very welcomed. There's a lovely pool and kids pool which helped our stay.

The beach is literally a 2-3 minute walk away. I recommend having a long walk in both directions along the sea front as it's spectacular. It's a short 10-15 minute walk along the front to Puerto Banus marina and around a 30 minute walk into the heart of Marbella.

All in all, we would stay again, possibly not in a Junior Suite due to the cost, but a West facing room.

Room Tip: Junior Suite is great if you have the money.

Stayed here 3 times really nice location, breakfast is excellent, rooms are average, pools and beach club a bit cramped, but the food in the beach bar is top notch, adjoining restaurant in neighbouring complex is also excellent

Myself and some friends stayed at the Coral Beach hotel for 3 nights early July 2013. I cannot fault it - the rooms were spotless and exactly as the website pictures show. The positioning was great and the hotel and pool were quiet and relaxing. The breakfast was nice with a wide choice of food was available. The pool was lovely, very very clean and sunbeds were always available. We ate at the pool bar a few times and the food was nice enough for lunch. There is an Aldi just up the road to stock up on essentials which was handy. The beach at the front of the hotel isn't very nice - dark sand, pebbly and the sea doesn't look very clean, but the lovely pool area makes up for that in my opinion. Taxi into Puerto Banus 6-7 euros each way and 11-14 euros each way to Marbella old town. Marbella is too far to walk, but using the beach promonade you can walk to Puerto Banus in around 15 minutes. All in all a very pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel and location to others!

We stayed at this hotel last year at approximately the same time. This time we elected to get a "junior suite plus" Our view of the pool and Med. made the extra charge more than worth it. We once again elected their "all inclusive plan". Their restaurant is very good and having the open bar concept provided us with a prefixed concept of our hotel expenditure for our seven day stay. One of the many features that we also enjoy about this hotel is its' location. Ten to thirteen minute walk and you are in Puerto Banus. Five to ten minute cab or bus and you are in Marbella antiqua. As with our last stay, the staff is still as gracious and helpful, the food is excellent and well prepared, the location is great, and the value for the money is very good. Hope to return many more times.

Room Tip: Request a room on an upper floor. Better view over the palm trees.

We stayed at this hotel for 13 nights in June/July. We had booked a family room with pool view for two adults and two teenagers. On arrival we were allocated two spacious interconnecting rooms with two large patios just a couple of metres from the swimming pool, exactly as requested. The rooms were spotlessly clean.
Without exception the staff were all excellent and provided a very good service.
Wi Fi cost us €25.00 per device for our stay and worked well in all areas of the hotel. The room safe cost €33.00.
There is not a lot of entertainment in the hotel and evenings at the bar tended to be quiet. However this was not a major issue for us.
Overall a very good holiday at a lovely hotel.

I was there with my daughter and we enjoyed a wonderful holiday
The hotel is beautiful and is very nice lovely pool and near the sea
The food was delicious everything was freshly prepared
The only minus point is that maybe you never had free wifi
Everything was makkel; calibration to walk the beach at the hotel was very expensive and a little boring but I was there with my daughter and we enjoyed, everything was perfect
The later you had nice beds and a lovely restaurant there
Marbella was easy to do the bus to pay taxi good and balances across
This was a holiday with an asterisk and I would definitely return!!
