Went here hast July with my boyriend and booked about two weeks before we went, looking for a quick deal. We were happily surprised, a very welcoming atmosphere. Our room was quite difficult to find at the back of the hotel near baby pool but it was everything we needed, we had twin beds, but pushed them together, and our own little terrace, saw a good few geckos out there in the evening. There was a great seating area to chill out in, although it was very crowded in the evening when the entertainment was on, still we had no problem finding a table and seat. The beach was a 10 minute stroll away, not the most beautiful beach by any means and it was quite rocky when you got into the sea, still was lovely and refreshing under the hot sun.
The food wasn't great, samey and boring - salad and variety of oils by far the best part! but all inclusive you can't complain too much, we went out to dinner a few times to really appriciate some spanish cuisine. We walked about 25 mins to the marina which was amazing, couldn't help but feel a little out of place next to all the expensive cars and boats!
We met a great group of people around our age (between 19-25) a few nights in, although this meant we weren't the quietest in the evening and got confronted by a certain guest who had nothing better to do then try and start an aggressive argument and therefore we got moved on a few nights. Which was fine, we understood it was a family place too, but there is a certain way of going about it.
Gorgeous bar and pizza place just across from the hotel, best.pizza.ever(I know you're in spain, but we'd heard such good things!). We hired a jet ski for 90 euros on our last day from a place along the promanade about 20 min walk away, expensive but the most fun ever!
Overall, an amazing 7 days, could not have asked for more, we were never stuck for things to do, the staff were mostly lovely, beautiful layout, perfect location for things to do and see. Would happily go back again.

Stayed in the hotel last year and really enjoyed it. Food was good and you would not go hungry as there is a small dining room were you can get food when the main dining room is closed (except for a few hours during the day) this could do with a bit more choice and you must eat it in there can't take food outside to eat by the pool. Queue for bar was orderly and staff were quick to serve. The room we had was good towels and room were clean, Loved the fact that our room had its own terrace on to the pool, and bar etc were all within easy distance from it. The hotel is also a great base, you can walk along the beach to Puerto Banus or jump a bus to Marbella costs about 2 euros. You can also walk into San Pedro (bout 20 mins) and get buses to Ronda, Estapona to mention a few. We were in the Hi Pedro Andaluz the year before which is a short distance away and we enjoyed it there but all the entertainment was in french with no translation to any other language. The beach here is lovely and is about a 10 min walk from hotel. So back to Globales for us this year again, can't wait.

Basic hotel with good customer service. Very little car parking and basic rooms. The premium rooms are also basic but are located far from the entertainment, so you are guaranteed a better nights sleep.

Room Tip: Go Premium if you want a better nights sleep.

Was not impressed when I at first was dropped off at the side of a dual carriageway at this Hotel but once checked in I realised what a lovely place it was. Our room was at the tennis court side of the Hotel which was peaceful with beautifully kept gardens with the staff maintaining them regularly as was the areas around the bar and poolside which were washed down every morning. We were on an all inclusive package and were not disappointed with the quantity and choice of food on offer and the bar staff were polite even when under siege! The staff did an excellent job of entertaining both children and adults throughout the day with games for adults during the day and a childrens show at night before the adult performances which were both funny and entertaining.... well done to all the staff they do a wonderful job.
All in all, this a wonderful Hotel, beautifully kept with great staff amd I hope to be a returning visitor in the very near future.

We have stayed at a number of "all inclusive" hotels over the last few years and I have to say that this is the worst of the lot. It took 3 attempts to get a room that was acceptable to us though I admit the reception staff where very helpful in moving us to meet our requirements. The rooms are basic but that is what you would expect in a 3 star hotel, however the overall ambiance of the hotel is very good with a good Spanish feel to the architecture and no accommodation being above 3 stories up. The Hotel was also handy to catch local buses to Puerto Banus and Marbella and we had a good day trip to Gibraltar which is just under an hour away. The bar service was good and the local alcohol supplied seemed of good quality. The main issue was the food , breakfast was good with the best cooked breakfast I have ever had outside of the UK but after that things went downhill rapidly, lunch and dinner had very limited choice with fish and cauliflower seeming to play a large part in the menu. As my Wife is seriously allergic to cauliflower this caused her a problem. For two or three evenings Dinner for some reason was slightly better , I can only assume the hotel may have had other visitors it wanted to impress. At all time the food from the buffet was only luke warm, luckily a microwave was available which I used at ever meal to bring the tempurature of my food up to an acceptable level. Others seemed happy to eat their food almost cold. I understand that over the Winter major improvements are to be made to the rooms and the menu is to be improved ready for the next season, this is because TUI (Tompson and its parent company) will have an exclusive contract with the hotel and you can expect to have many more Germans and Russians using it, and obviously the price will go up!

My dad and I came back from this hotel in mid August after a week of relaxation, enjoyment and fun! we went with Jet2 and got a good package deal - everything from the flights to the transport went smoothly and we didn't have one bother. The transfer time from the airport to the hotel was about two hours but the coach was air conditioned and the views were lovely so we didn't really mind. The staff were very friendly and helpful although sometimes could seem a bit moody (but who doesn't get moody at work)! We weren't too keen on our room when we first saw it as it was right at the back of the hotel away from everything, but once we were in the views definitely changed our minds. There was no noise from the entertainment either meaning that we rested very well (we would now actually recommend the room) the rooms are always kept clean and tidy and everything was perfect about it. The beach is only about a five minute walk away down a straight road, it's really not far and it's a lovely walk. Although the hotel was quite far out it was easy to access places such as Puerto Banus (which was only a five minute FREE bus ride away) and San Pedro which was within walking distance. The entertainment was good during the day. Theres different activities such as water polo and darts etc and during the evening there was always some form of entertainment which was very enjoyable, we met some lovely people there also and overall the holiday was very good! My dad and I will definitely be returning, we really recommend this holiday to families and couples.

Hope this review helped :)

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel near the tennis courts were very peaceful and had lovely views!
