Stayed here on a business trip. Room was fantastic and kept very clean. Food was great and the staff were very helpful. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Ask for a room with a beach view it's Stunning.

First impression was very good. Staff were friendly and helpful and we received a complimentary drink while we waited for our room as we had arrived early. Sat in the very nice gardens, then went to the room which was just the right size, very comfortable and clean, with superb views out to sea. We were B&B and the breakfast... More

I'd heard a lot about this property, but had never stayed there until recently. You can't beat the location, the staff are obliging and polite and the hotel's position is perfect if you want the beach on your door step or old Marbella town to stroll too for early evening drinks or dinner. Car parking is a little tight in... More

All of the staff we encountered were cheerful and helpful. The restaurant staff at breakfast have got it just right-attentive without being overbearing! The breakfast itself was fantastic, so much choice! Every... More

Although somewhat dated the place is kept immaculate and well maintained so has a charm which many will find preferable to a new hotel. Excellent position with access to the beach and a great promenade. The food buffet was very good in quality and variety.
