Two of us stayed here in July for 2 days. We were very warmly welcomed and greeted at reception and promptly checked-in. In fact, I must say that every encounter we had with hotel staff was extremely friendly and personable - at reception, housekeeping, restaurant, bar and the Level lounge. We felt truly welcome in this hotel. Our room with... More

Others mentioned that there were no umbrellas to keep shade in high summer so many people gathered under the shade of the trees. We took half board, which was an expensive option and the money charged it could be better however i suppose we paid for the... More

The staff where friendly and helpful, but often stressed and over-stretched at breakfast time and lunchtime,... More

Nice clean room with view over the amazing pool area. Spa, good parking and 100 meters from the beach. Walking distance to everything Puerto Banus has to offer. Marbella is a 40 minute run away and the beachfront is great for running. Perfect location and a great hotel for holidays.
