“Our fantastic stay at the Banus Lodge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

We have just returned from an excellent stay at the Banus Lodge, On our arrival we were warmly greeted by Loes and Willem who made us feel so comfortable and relaxed from the start. The lodges and surrounds are kept to a high standard and we wanted for nothing. The pool area and bar is beautiful, and both owners were always around should we have any questions or needed anything. The location is perfect being a short walk to the beach and coastal path. We hired bikes most days from the lodge which enabled us to get around and see the beautiful old town of Marbella and San Pedro. There are also a some great beach bars close by which were recommended to us which have delicious food and great service. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Banus Lodge to anyone. Thanks Loes and Willem we will be back!

Great things: Loes and Willem, the Dutch owners, are very friendly and helpful. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, very close to beach and only about 10 minute stroll along the new walkway at the back of the beach to get into town and the marina. Good value. Great buffet breakfast. Free parking. Free wifi at the pool bar and usually in the apartment too. Great, simple decoration, all well kept and in good condition.

Not so good things: Beds a bit too hard for me. Can hear any noise from next door's apartment (although our neighbours were very quiet so it wasn't a big problem).

Room Tip: Rooms 9 & 10 have the (small) car park on one side and the patio with a wall and hedge on the ot...

A lovely Dutch couple runs this small, quaint lovely little lodge. It is tucked away just off the main promenade (about a 10 min walk). It's very local...this is not the Ritz!! but it gives you a very 'home away from home' feel. Lues (one of the managers) is so lovely and accommodating. Wilhelm (think I mispelled this), her husband was lovely to speak to and kept my dad entertained with chats at the bar. We loved this place and the people and it is so reasonable priced. Would definitely return.

Five of us stayed here in September for a long weekend and very much enjoyed it. The rooms we stayed in were comfortable, had AC and a small kitchenette. The pillows were not particularly comfortable, but everything else about the rooms was nice. The location is great - just a few minutes from the beach and a very easy walk to the central area of Puerto Banus. The lodge will lend you beach towels for free if you ask. The breakfast is EXCELLENT. It cost us about 8 euros each and you can have as much as you like - selection of fresh breads, rolls, eggs any way you like, cheeses, jams, coffee, tea - full English breakfast too.

The only drawback was the first night we arrived they were overbooked and two of us had to sleep in a small, stuffy room without AC. The owners were very apologetic and gave us a bottle of champagne to make up for it.

We stayed in The Banus Lodge from 18/9 - 22/9.
A stunning quiet location but with only a short two minute walk to Mistral beach and a further 10 mins stroll into the heart of Banus marina. Rooms at the Lodge a clean and tidy. Its an excellent location for small families and or small groups. What makes this special is our hosts and owners Willem & Loes. A really lovely couple who look after all your needs and requirements. They advised us on where to eat at night and where to go when in Banus. They have a great little bar area next to a swimming pool and the breakfasts were great.. We picked the location as we were playing golf in the area and none of us were disappointed. This is a must location if you want a quiet life during the day.
Thank you to both Willem & Loes, see you next year.

Just returned from a week in beautiful Puerto Banus and equally beautiful Banus Lodge. Not only was it the accommodation that was beautiful but also the atmosphere, the hosts and the overall perfect environment. From the moment we entered until the moment we left we felt like it was our home away from home for the week. We had breakfast on our first morning there but although it was lovely and had everything to offer we thought it would be easier to pick up some bits from the supermarket so we could sleep in and then eat when we woke. Snacks are also available throughout the day, taosties, burgers etc which are very well priced and also yum! We went out every night for dinner to some restaurants that were recommended by our lovely host, one of which called 'Gold' which we fell in love with and returned 3 times it was so perfect. Right on the beach in a very quiet location just off puerto Banus strip, food is perfect (gambas pil pil...amazing) service was excellent with lovely waitresses working there and atmosphere is so layed back with very reasonable prices. We were also reccommended to go to a beach club called 'Puro beach'. Can not say enough great things about this place. We went on a saturday and definitely one of the high lights of our holiday. Although it cost 60 euro in a cab return it was worth the journey, beds by the pool for both of us were 80 euro for the day, had a beautiful lunch there and a lovely bottle of wine too. Music playing all day with an amazing atmosphere, didnt want to leave. Next day on the sunday we spent a day at Ocean club, although a VERY expensive day we had a great day but nothing beats coming home to Banus lodge to an evening swim and being welcomed back by our hosts making sure to ask how our day was. Already looking to book again for next summer as it honestly was that perfect!

I just returned from an amazing hen do and staying at the Banus Lodge made the experience more memorable. The owners are welcoming and accommodating. They made me feel special with their warmth and friendly behaviour. The owners can prepare you English breakfast for roughly 4 Euros. The beach is a 3 min walk away and 10 minutes away from all the clubs, bars, and restaurant. I would recommend Banus Lodge anyone whether it's a small group of friends, couples or families. Ideal location, pretty, clean and excellent service!!

Room Tip: Quiet, Clean & Spacious
