Pros: The hotel is clean and cosy. Rooms are equipped with a comfortable bed and bathtub. Staff was very friendly and helpfull, they really tried to find answer to all my questions. There was everything you could possibly wish for breakfast, including champagne and strwaberries ;) Very close to the beach.
Cons: No free of charge Internett (7 euros for 24hours access)

This hotel was a huge disappointment. Room was dated and dirty. Food and drink on the resort where very expensive. Additional charge per device to use the Wi-Fi. Additional charge to use the room safe.

How this hotel got a 4 star rating is beyond me. I would rate it a 1 star.

This is a good hotel but I would not put it in the the top 10, even though it is now rated as no 9 in Marbella. The lower ground floor rooms have no views. The staff try to be friendly. Nothing else really made it any different from ll the other hotels in the area. It is on the seaside but not walking distance to Puerto banus or Marbella. No coffee maker in the room. WIFI is cheap at 7euro per day.

We just had a fabulous weekend in Marbella at the Iberostar. Lovely clean, bright ample size room and we only had the very basic!... Staff were so friendly and helpful. We just had B&B, the breakfast was vast, so much choice, something to suit everyone, with eggs & omelettes cooked to order!.... It was April and quite quiet which was just perfect!... Nice easy walk along the coast to Puerto Banus, a slow stroll took only about 20 minutes to the Marina, so very well situated. Would recommend.

Rooms are light, airy and very clean. Staff excellent. Breakfast very good with great variety. Wifi and room safe charges should be amalgamated within the room charge. Found the bar tariff just a little overpriced.
Generally though a very pleasant experience. Will definitely visit again

Room Tip: If you take a walk to Puerto Banus go via the beach. The main road route is just a narrow trip hazar...
