This hotel’s location is perfect to explore Marbella and luxurious enough to command its status as one of Marbella’s best hotel. It is situated on the beach, close to many restaurants/bars and 2 minutes from old town Marbella. It is also a 10euro cab ride from Puerto Banus. You could not find a better location if you are a person who likes the beach but does not want to be limited to it.
The hotel has a lovely pool, nice gardens and helpful staff. The usual problems exist in that there could be more sunbeds but we prefer to head to the beach so no big issue for us. At the beach, I was surprised that the beach club, in association or owned by the hotel, charged 7euro per sun bed.
We were upgraded to the junior suite, we had booked a standard. This was a lovely touch. The room itself is by no amazing but it is nice and we had a side sea view. From reading the other reviews on this site prior to booking, I was concerned about the room but with the upgrade, it was more than fine.
