The Rincon Andaluz is a very pleasant hotel, comprising 3-storey accommodation blocks set in attractive surroundings, five minutes from the beach and a twenty-minute walk along the promenade to Puerto Banus. The hotel is situated next to the busy CN340 so I don't recommend the cheaper ('promo') rooms as they are likely to be close to the noisy road and I get the impression these are the rooms that cause the bad reviews. Book a standard or superior room and ask for middle or top floor near the main pool and you should have no problem. These rooms are spacious, clean, come with a nice balcony and on two visits I have not experienced any problems with the air-conditioning.
Food in the buffet-style restaurant is good and there is plenty to choose from. There are some tables on an open-air terrace, which is a great place for breakfast or dinner. The terrace is very popular so be prepared to wait a short while. Hotel staff are, generally, very pleasant and efficient. That said, some of the restaurant staff can get a little stressed when busy. Bar prices are OK for this part of the coast (EUR3.20 for a large beer, EUR7 for a large G&T, EUR18 for a reasonable bottle of wine in the restaurant).
There are two nice swimming pools, both of which can be busy so it's a case of getting up early if you want a sunbed for the day! Evening entertainment can be a bit naff but it does not go on much after 11pm (thankfully!).
Car-hire is recommended if you wish to get out and about and it's cheaper than a round-trip taxi from Malaga Airport. Finding a parking space can be a little testing at times.
Overall, a very enjoyable stay and good value for money.
