I have read through some of the reviews here and can only say that a lot of the negative reviews are probably written by some pretty small-minded individuals.

This is the oldest hotel in Marbella, and even has a small museum housed in the remains of a small forte in the grounds of the hotel. There are many nice things about this hotel. It has a fantastic location, lots of... More

We had spent a week in this hotel in September 2013 and we returned for another week in March 2014, This time we booked a half board deal with the hotel on line.
