Stayed at the Melia Marbella for New Year had previously stayed at The Fuerte Marbella, a good hotel but a little too far from Puerto Banus for us. All staff were friendly and efficient and helped make our stay an ecellent one

Really nice facilities, heated pool is lovely for an off season break. Bar & Restaurant is a bit pricey. Location is great. Parking is a bit of an issue, but there are often spaces on the local roads. Very handy for the main coast road so very easy to get to.

Stayed here for 4 nights over new year. The hotel is in a good location and only a 5 minute walk into puerto banus main area although marbella is around 4 miles away. We upgraded to 'the level' which cost €240 for the 4 nights. This was pretty steep considering all we got was a slightly upgraded room and free... More

to enjoy an excellent hotel-resort. comfortable, obliging and competent staff. To our stay in december 2014 of two weeks: Location is very close to Puerto Banus and to the beach.

This is a really lovely hotel, with very welcoming and friendly staff. We had a lovely room which was spacious and clean with lovely views down toward the sea. The Hotel was ideally located for easy access to Puerto Banus. We had a really lovely time there and would definitely stay there again.

Great hotel in walking distance to all the nightlife. The rooms are nice, the staff are helpful and the food is good. If you want to go to the marina jump in a taxi, it's not far. Would stay here again.

I can't confirm that this hotel is QUIET (as another reviewer said) as due to its location very close on the conjuction of 4-lane-freeway A7 and the 4-lane highway N340. Rooms faceing to the sea might be different. So remember that you can't sleep with open windos listing only to the rushing sea....compared to the real beachside properties in Marbella.... More

A modern hotel in an excellent location, we also upgraded to the level package which included premium drinks and food which I would highly recommend. There are plenty of pool areas and within walking distance to Puerto banus.
