Stayed at this hotel for a week. Upgraded on arrival which was a treat; access to Level lounge with drinks, lunch, snacks etc. Staff were very friendly. Hotel immaculate. Great location next to river and beach. Weather was perfect too. What more could you want.

The hotel staff were very friendly and the room was kept immaculately clean, Breakfast was delicious and served until 11.am which made for a relaxing atmosphere as there was always vacant tables. Dinner was plentiful with a good choice of food and... More

I have been coming here for years, and its always been a great spot. Going back this year. It has its quirks but the location more than makes up for it. Service can be a bit slow, but the staff are always very nice and helpful, and most have been there for years. The rooms are lovely and big, although... More

Me and my boyfriend spent a long weekend in January at Melia Marbella Banús. I have no bad remarks about the hotel, only that anyone else is able to buy lunch and drinks using your room number, so be cautious when paying the check-out check. Someone used our room number when dining lunch and drinking drinks at the bar. It... More
