“excellent place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

property is excellent and its very scenic inside the hotel and you are on beach hotel,restaurants are excellent and we have very good time specially at italian restaurant as we love italian food.
the coffee shop with organic stuff is also very nice and if you are not very keen to explore different places,then you can just chill in hotel or at beach.

Room Tip: stay as close possible to beach

We had a fantastic time in this hotel. The room "Junior Suite", like most of the rooms, in this hotel was great. Wel decorated and efficient bathroom. We had our own balcony with two confortable chairs. Nothing wrong. Room service was fast and within 20 minutes. The breakfast buffet was fantastic. So many items to choose from. Hotel staff was most friendly from the reception desk till the room maids. All in all fantastic.

Just came back from a long weekend at the puente Romano and although we did not have sun every day I can not remember a better holiday ever! The food and choice of restaurants was outstanding the service was by Spanish standards exceptional and although there were renovations being done the property is large enough not to bother you unless you are in that particular area. The spa was not open yet but the waiter at seagrill told us it was opening next month just before the summer season. I will be back!!!

Marbella has been built in the 70s to be the European equivalent of Florida for British and German seniors.Since then, multiple crisis have blocked most reinvestments. So if you don't play golf and if you are not over 65 : DON'T GO !

Back in late 60, two former campings on the coast have been transformed in "luxury estates". At this hippy time, Club Med was leading the market of tourism so Puente Romano and its sister estate "Marbella Club" have been built on the model of a Club Med Village, vintage 1972.

You ll find many restaurants in the village with a lot of buffet food. They are mostly ok for Spanish standards even if pretty expensive : expl. lunch buffet at Seagrill is 60€

In the village, they haven't redecorated seriously the rooms and the super cheap bathrooms since Michael Jackson was still a Jackson Five. Vintage would be fun : it's just cheap by now

We asked for an upgrade (as Leading Hotel of the world member). We had booked a "deluxe room garden view " and they gave us a "deluxe room with partial seaview" (K32) = understand "with a garden view but if you jump from your micro terrasse you may see a little corner of sea". Ridiculous

They were supposed to upgrade us for free but they ask +50% extra on the intial price. No choice than to accept it and this is why :

They are currently renovating in a very noisy ambiance the main block at the entrance where all the restaurants are, including breakfast.

Don't expect to speak to the person in front of you. There are no place to hide on the terrasse in front of the works; that start before breakfast. Breakfast buffet is at international standard (a good point)

Works will last at least until 2016 as they are building a all new building behind. ask only for a room beachside as they do sell some houses in front of the works

Puente Romano is a beach resort. So you may expect a BEACH, for a Leading Hotel of the World

You ll get a narrow strip of gray dark sand with two rows of cheap plastic seats, located less than 10 meters from the exit of a huge river of black waters from the upperside of the village that pollute the sea in front of you. Beeeeurk !

Better try the Seagrill's pool ? but, bad news, they are currently building the spa right behind/on the pool

And big news : we can tell you, months in advance, that it will be a Six sens spa.

How do we know ? There is a huge sign behind the concierge to promote the "Six sens spa" with a blue print on the top saying : "opening this summer". Oooops

Unfortunately, like most people, I read only the big sign and book 2 massages from the concierge at "the spa" = a cheap independent manicure shop outside the hotel where they practice Turkish massage on a woodtable

The price is already "Six senses" (to cover the commission of the hotel, I suppose) but you are far from a Leading Spa of the World

Seriously, you wonder how this luxury camping club is still labeled Leading Hotel of the World. It's a disgrace for the institution

Conclusion : we were planing to extend our stay for the weekend in Marbella but, as Marbella Club was not even better, we decided to leave after two nights. We will reconsider the place in one or two generations...

Amazingly large rooms, great service, lovely atmosphere and great surroundings made this a memorable visit. 3 pools to choose from and a number of great restaurants. It was very hard to find any faults. Would definitely stay again.

We were staying in another hotel and found this resort on our travels whilst looking for somewhere to eat. We went to the Tai Pan Chinese restaurant and the Thai restaurant and they were both excellent. They had a good choice of wine and extensive menus. Set in lovely grounds I would look at staying here if we came back to Marbella.

Very nice resort, quite big but still feels like private, good food and large rooms.
There are several pools and the complex has also a semi-private beach.
It's convenient situated near Marbella and Puerto Banus

Room Tip: all rooms should be fine, they are renovating some areas
