“Great friendly service, perfect location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

I just got back from Marbella having had 3 nights away with the girls for my hen do. Banus Lodge was everything we wanted it to be. A 3 minute walk from the beach, 10 minute walk from the clubs of Puerto Banus, clean and spacious, with a pool-side bar at a good price. We were even offered a great hot (delicious!) breakfast for €4 a person which we had sitting on the side of the pool in the shade of some palm trees. The owners are a Dutch couple who are really friendly and were happy to accommodate all of our needs. Great stay! Would definitely recommend it!

The location was perfect for us. The Lodge is situated in a very safe, quiet area of Peurto Banus, yet it is only 3 minutes walk to the beach. Loes and Will were fab hosts and from the time we arrived they were smiling and very helpful. The breakfasts were good, and the bar and pool area were welcoming and fine.We will definately return as we liked everything about the place including the unimposing layout of the apartments which created a lovely atmosphere whilst also providing some privacy.

We stayed here from 12-19 April for a final week away before our 1st child is due on July. Great location within 15 minute walk of Puerto Banus harbour.

Our Dutch hosts were very welcoming, the apartments were modern, spacious, great shower, & it all was just very easy. Terrace straight out to the pool area, its a small gated development so felt very safe & secure.

We had a car for the week & went into Ronda Valley which was stunning, about 45 minute drive. Strongly advise not to use Goldcar rental, hire cost was reasonable but you have to pay for a full tank of petrol on collection & we were charged 85 euro for a 1.2l corsa, compete rip off!!!!

Thanks Banus Lodge, a great week was had:-)

Banus Lodge may not be the easiest place to find (GPS is the answer!) but, once found, is a delight. The Dutch owners are extremely welcoming and concerned to make your stay enjoyable. Our accommodation was quite spacious and well equipped -and a little more attention to decor would make it warmer and more homely. Immediate access to the pool from your own terrace is a bonus and the whole atmosphere is one of relaxation. Exploring from Banus Lodge is so easy and it is very well situated with easy walking access to the beach. With Puerto Banus one way and lovely walks with places where you can stop for a drink or to eat the other way, we were spoilt for choice. We were there in March when all was quite quiet but I can imagine that, in the height of summer, the oasis that is Banus Lodge would really come into its own. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Banus Lodge recently and would not hesitate in recommending it. A very nice, small complex with well kitted out bungalow type apartments. Willhem and Loes who run the complex were very welcoming and helpful making our stay very pleasant. They went out of their way for us, taking us to San Pedro Spanish village for a drink and dropping us off at a great well priced Spanish restaurant. In terms of location it was situated between Peurto Banus and San Pedro approx 10 minutes walk from each and only 100 metres from the beach. First time to Puerto Banus which was great for cosmopolitan feel with loads of restaurants. Not as expensive as I expected. Marbella old town worth a visit. If I visit again will definitely stay there.

Have nothing but praise for this hotel and its owners Loes (not sure if this is correct spelling) and Willem as they are probably the most convivial hosts to be found in the hotel industry.
The rooms were spacious and well appointed and the whole atmosphere in the hotel was both relaxing and friendly with nothing too much trouble for the hosts.
We have no reservations about recommending this hotel to our friends and we have already booked another week in September (cannot wait)

We stayed in Banus Lodge in October 2012.
Our apartment was specious, bright and clean with open plan living area & fully fitted kitchen.
It is worth to book one with a terrace which is overlooking swimming pool. We used it a lot for breakfast, brunches or evening glass of wine.
Breakfast can be booked and it is served every day plus 1 day a week the owners are organizing BBQ, there is also a small bar by the pool where you can get nice cappuccino and other beverages.
As we were looking for something quiet and central at the same time this place was a real found! It takes 3 min walk to beach, numbers of shops are nearby, Puerto Banus is just a short stroll along the coastline. Car is not essential but handy, specially if you plan to stay there longer.
Overall place is worth your money, run by nice and helpful people and we have had a lovely time.
We would definitely go back there!
