“A Cosy Real Spanish andalusian Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I have stayed in numeral occasion and recommended to family and friends to share the experience to feel the real Southern Spanish way of life. It is a family managed business that with a very welcoming mama Mari and the young generation of the family have turned this traditional run hotel in a clean comfortable and convenient place to stay in Marbella.
A 100 meters from the beach and a walk into town, is the perfect place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the noisy visitors and jet well connected to all the amenities that offers la Costa del Sol.

The staff is really helpful and you feel at home and pampered at all times.

Room Tip: Ask to be located facing South. There is a beautiful morning light and, although next to a main road...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

Family type of hotel.
Rooms were fine and bathroom quite old but functional. Small veranda was pleasant but need to stand up to have a view to industrial zone, not that charming....
Air conditioning was functioning and ok.
Breakfast is extra but not expensive (2.5€).
Hotel is located in an industrial zone, close to one beach but quite far from Marbella beaches and city center.
Fine if you just want to go to the beach.
Note: leave the key on the door as personnel don't seem to knock on the door before entering.
