We stayed here for 6 nights in late July 2012. We spoke to the staff in Spanish and found them to be helpful. Many of the employees were happy to speak English too.
We requested a superior room with a pool view, which was excellent and clean, with a nice terrace. We overlooked the pool, which I would recommend as other rooms overlook a main road.
It was very quiet for 5 nights of the 6. Although, like most modern hotels, the walls are quite thin and the guests above were clearly audible late one night.
The pool area is pleasant, with a nice family atmosphere and sunbeds available every day that we were there. However, I would suggest turning up at around 9.30am to guarantee a good spot.
The nearby beach is also good, although we were slightly disappointed to pay ten euros for a sunbed and towel. In fairness, this is stated on the website and appears common along the 'golden mile'. The beach is just a short walk from the hotel, past the Puente Romano over the road. The NH bar, restaurant and toilet are all available for guests. The presence of illegal vendors and massage ladies is mildly irritating, but it's still a relaxing experience overall.
Contrary to other reviews, we really enjoyed the breakfast. A good selection of fresh fruit, cereals and breads was available, along with hot food options.
The hotel is located about 3 km from both Marbella town centre and Puerto Banus. You can walk along the beach in both directions or get the number 1 bus. Taxis are also reasonable if you get tired of waiting for a bus!!
