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

We were after an inexpensive short break late Autumn break, and so booked into this hotel knowing that it would be reasonably basic. On the upside, the hotel is well located for the old town, the main drag and the beach, and is just off a pretty piazza. The reception staff were very friendly, and our room was spacious with...

I stayed here for 1 week in October this year. The hotel is clean, the rooms are comfortable and the hotel is very central : a five minute walk to the lovely Venus beach and five minutes walk to the lovely old town . The rooftop pool could do with re - furbishment and the hotel tends to be a... More

I have stayed at the El Rodeo twice this summer for weekend breaks, the first time being June with 2 girlfriends, and the second time in October with my mum. I will definitely be going back for a third time next year!!!! Don't get me wrong, the first time we pulled up outside in the taxi I was thinking 'what... More

We spent 7 days in a top floor room at this hotel in September 2013 It is located in a commercial/residential area and the front door is hard to find in the daytime as it is in a block of shops however at night a large neon sign points the way. The reception staff were very friendly and the hotel... More

This is not a fancy hotel but one of the nicest, quite basic and an excellent location would recommend and would stay here again. Food was lovely, room basic but fine as a base. Doesn't look anything outside you could actually miss the entrance but otherwise all good. Marbella is a lovely place to stay I'm going back in a... More
