We had two nights in January booking on the day. The hotel is on the beachfront in a great location. The reception staff were helpful and they gave us a room with a side sea view which gave great sunrise views.
The bedroom is off a small 'corridor' which separates the kitchen area from the bathroom. For the money we paid we were really pleased with the space and facilities.
There is a rooftop terrace with a pool but it was a bit too cold in January for a dip.
There are loads of bars and restaurants in the vicinity and Puerto Banus was about one hours walk away...straight down the coastal walkway.
We didn't eat at the hotel; I'm not sure if they have a restaurant as I didn't see it. Breakfast was arranged at a bar just around the corner.
I would not hesitate to stay there again.

We decided to take a short last minuet break back to Marbella and back to the Princessa Playa. What a great decision after early worries about the weather ( we did not need to worry it was fabulous) we ended up with great weather great. The Hotel was Faultless again!!! we will be back at the end of the year. Even though the hotel was having some out of season refurb work done the workmen did not spoil our stay, they worked as quiet as they could and cleaned as they went along!!. In short this is just the right Hotel for us in the best spot for us!!

Room Tip: It is difficult to guarantee but do your best to get a sea view!! even on the side you get a decent...

We had an apartment with a sea view and balcony, One tip, if you like the sun in the afternoon ask for a west facing room as the sun moves round quickly in the morning, (January) leaving the east by 12 ish. Breakfast was included an the 8th floor, with fab views across to Gibraltar & Africa. The hotel staff are so friendly and helpful - honestly they couldn't be more so, and the rooms are both spotless and fully equipped with everything if you want to prepare your own food. We will definitely go back to this hotel again.

Stayed for 4 nights over Christmas in what was our 4th Christmas break here.
Great "welcome back" on check in at reception most apartments have sea view or side sea view.
Stayed in a serviced one bedroomed apartment with excellent facilities including sat TV with BBC channels.
The convenience of its location on the prom with bars, restaurants and a short walk to The old Town - a 24 hour Open Cour Supermarket and car parking make this a favourite choice.
The only slight disappointment car parking now Euros 15 per 24 hours for hotel guests up from Euros 12 last Christmas.
Advertised 24 hour rate to general public Euros 19!

We stayed for 1 week at the beginning of November, and really enjoyed it. The rooms and all the public areas we used were spotless, and cleaned every day. Linen was changed several times during 1 week, and lighter cotton bed covers put on as it was so hot. Air conditioning adequate for that time of year, but maybe not in the height of the summer. Really good bathroom.. seemed almost new, and a great shower in a very waterproof large cubicle, so no wet floors. Okay hairdryer, but if you need a lot of power to achieve your style maybe take your own. We didn't use the restaurant or bar, and used our little kitchen for breakfast and lunch. There was enough space to make snacks, but if I was really gonna be picky, no bread knife, so cutting a baguette was tricky !! The staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. I asked for a kettle, and one was brought to our room almost immediately. We had a studio which was spacious, but had a very small balcony. But that still had very nice table and chairs and a little line for swimmers and small stuff. We are frequent visitors to Marbella, and both agree this is the best place we have stayed for cleanliness and equipment. We shall return next year.

Room Tip: Not many rooms on the front, so you may be lucky to get a sea view.

We booked this hotel very last minute for a November get away. Couldn't have picked better location wise. Right on the sea front in a quiet area but with all the bars and restaurants only a couple of minutes walk away. Also only a 5 - 10 minute walk to the old town and even more bars, restaurants and shops which had a great atmosphere in the evening even so late in the year.
The hotel itself was great, Our room was large, studio style with lots of wardrobe space and a great little well equipped kitchen area which was perfect for making breakfasts/lunches or even an evening meal if you wanted. (There is a great small supermarket selling all the essentials just around the corner).The bathroom was also large with a window which is rare in hotels. Although there was no bath the shower was great. The furnishings were fairly standard however they were more modern than many places we have stayed abroad, the one small thing that let it down was the bed which was very hard and not comfortable. Our room had a small balcony which was not sea facing, although we asked there were no sea view rooms available. I would definitely recommend requesting a sea view when booking as if you can get one I'm sure it will be even better. We found the room to be spotlessly clean and it was cleaned and fresh towels provided (if required) every day.
The pool is on the roof top and the views from the restaurant and pool area are lovely.
Wifi is only available in the reception area although there were some workmen there during our stay feeding lots of cables through the walls so possibly a better wifi service to come?? Would definitely return to this hotel and would have given it the extra 'star' if the bed had been a bit comfier and wifi was a bit more available.

Room Tip: Request a sea view when booking
