I had one day here on a business trip at the end of October.
The first gripe is that it's difficult to find. My agency had somehow put the map of the other Melia hotel in Marbella onto my order confirmation. It's on the road to Ronda, about 3m north of the main Marbella-Algeciras road. There are endless roundabouts. Once you get the right one (two up from the BP garage) there's one small sign amongst many others announcing the hotel. The resort hotel is two miles further on. The staff on arrival are friendly and welcoming. Rooms (ours anyway) are large, with beds to match. The views across the golf course to the mountains are spectacular. It's not a beach hotel, though, and if you want the sea, this isn't for you. It's beautifully quiet. There's a good pool. Breakfast is good, though there's a casual air about the service. Three of the hot items were used up when I ate (not late) and though the dishes were filled up willingly there was an inevitable delay. Orange juice also had to be refilled and the coffee machine was not functioning because it needed to be emptied of used coffee grounds. Lunch was potentially nice, though I had to send my fish back because, though allegedly local, it had been frozen and was still raw and cold in the middle. Problems are however put right smilingly. Staff want to help. The environment is relaxing. Once you learn that nothing here can really be done in a hurry, it's a pleasant spot. I shall probably use it again for the sleep quality and the peace and quiet.
