For a 4* its not bad....The sea views are stunning and the location is superb.....My only comment ( not complaint) is that the Hotel lacks some WOW factor and seems a little dated for my tastes. This is probably not the place to go for the younger set if you get my drift and minding one's Ps and Qs was... More

This hotel is fantastic. In a great location for the beach and nearby town with restaurants and shopping. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The hotel has live entertainment on most nights also. The breakfast and dinner host a great buffet with lots of choice.

My wife and I have recently returned from this fabulous hotel in Marbella and consider it to be one of the best located hotels in town. This hotel is right on the promenade in the centre and the gates at the front of the hotel are literally on the edge of the Old Town. Having booked a standard room, I... More

We've been here, or it's sister The Fuerte Miramar just down the road, five years in a row. They are both very similar. Normally May or October, this time we had to do August because of work. Obviously more expensive because of school holidays, although there were very few children, and a huge €30 per night extra for a nice... More

The hotel is very well located in the middle of Marbella. Only a few minutes walk to the authentic and charming Marbella "old town". Good clean rooms and all staff at the hotel was friendly... More

The room I stayed in had a large Patio over looking the sea, which made the small room acceptable. The bathroom was good and the bed comfortable. The grounds of the hotel make this a great property to stay. The bar area over looks the sea. The restaurant for breakfast does a good job with lots of fresh fruits and... More
