Superb location. Bus stops and taxi ranks outside, next to the beautiful area of Old Marbella and only a short walk to the beach through a delightful park populated with several interesting statues by Salvador Dali. We were given a room at the back of the hotel which provided a view of the Sierra Blanco Mountains and the Old Town.... More

Our room was overlooking the main road but we couldn't hear a thing. Rooms were very clean, staff polite and helpful, only disappointment was the bar & restaurant were closed.... More
