I stayed at the El Rodeo from the 11th to 14th July. Upon arrival it took a while to check in due to the receptionist not speaking much English. One of the lifts was a bit dodgy and wouldn't take us to our floor :-( The room we were given was a nice big room with a large balcony (that... More

Rooms very basic as expected. Clean enough with new towels and beds made everyday. In a nice location with bars and restaurants and the beach on the door step. The pool was vile. Enough said. If I was going again I would go self catering as the food around the hotel was cheap and the food they had wasn't up... More

Great location as in the heart of Marbs near fab beach and old town. Hotel entrance is in side road. Noisy outside at night but you get used to it. Great variety of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Friendly staff. Nice big room with balcony, nice bathroom. Small swimming pool nice to use though. We had a very pleasant... More

I stayed at El Rodeo as part of a Hen party in May 2014. We arrived around 7pm and we're dropped off by our transfer on the Main Street, we were then pointed down a side street to the hotel. The hotel is lit up by a big pink sign so hard to miss it but it is in between... More

If you are arriving at night via Urbis Transfers you should be advised you will be dropped off in a dark side road and not shown to this hotel even if you are ladies on your own. Arrived at the hotel in early hours to be greeted by the receptionist who ignored us and carried on a phone conversation for... More

I considered this hotel to be excellent value for money, and the location was just what I wanted. It is a 2/3 minute walk in one direction to the beach and 2/3 minutes in the other direction to the old town. The whole area felt safe and I saw many patrolling police. I like walking and walked to Puerto Banus... More

Having never been to marbella we were unsure about what is a good location. If you are looking for the area that has the fancy yachts and cars and also the strip of bars such as linekers and o,Grady's then you need to book the Puerto banus area. This hotel is in central marbella which is perfect location for old... More

We were originally staying out of town at a larger complex. However, this turned out to be an awful experience so we managed to get in at el rodeo. They were brilliant, let us check in early, gave us countless information on places to eat and taxis and beaches. We got a top floor room, clean as a whistle. No... More

Apologies to all TripAdvisor reviewers!This review is long over-due. We stayed in El Rodeo July 2013. I was anxious re' the mixed reviews when booking, but found the staff in reception (Francois) helpful. We found the hotel to be just around the corner from a lovely park & best of all, only 5mns + from beach & great tapas bars... More

Stayed for 4 nights in October 2013 with a friend in a twin en suite room. The front desk staff are very helpful. The restaurant staff were a little on the surly/unfriendly side but still efficient. Would just be nice to receive 'service with a smile'! The building is pretty dated and could benefit from a renovation. However, the room,... More
