“Great place , great value, great staff”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

We stayed on this hotel last week, with family. The location is perfect next to the Sea, city center and restaurants. We were upgraded to a superior room which was great, new rooms with big beds , and the price is correct. Great value for our money. We made this hotel our hotel when visiting Marbella and we are telling all of our friends. Thanks for a lovely stay.

With new owners El Faro is being refurbished from top to bottom. We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms on the fifth floor. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The small kitchenette was functional and gave us a few more options. Breakfast offered a wide range of continental fare. A good start to the day. The staff could not have been friendlier. But best of all was the location. The beach and promenade were two minutes walk away (if you went slowly) and the old town 5 minutes. Within three four minutes walk were more bars and restaurants than we could visit by a long way. I wish the management all the best with the ongoing refurbishments.

Room Tip: In February rooms looking over the street are quiet, in summer find a room overlooking the pool, the...
