We stayed here as a group of 8 women and we had a great time. We upgraded to "The Level" and I would strongly recommend this as it only cost €15 per day which is the price of 1 drink at the bar and gave you a nicer bedroom, a exclusive lounge with unlimited beer, wine and soft drink, spirits...

This was our second visit to this hotel this year and it was very good, rooms spacious and furnished to a good standard. It is in a fantastic location for Puerto Banus and Marbella.

Bar staff very friendly first night but second night the new staff were not very friendly at all!!... More

The Melia Marbella Banus is a good quality hotel located within walking distance of Puerto Banus. We had no complaints about our stay at the hotel - the rooms were clean (although slightly outdated), staff were welcoming and friendly, the pool and leisure facilities were good, and the food on offer (particularly the extensive breakfast range) was very reasonable.
