“Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

There was a surprise when we booked in, the room was large, well equipped in all respects,with a kitchen?
Who would expect a cooker in your room. Balcony, seats,table and view. Great so far. It was only out there on the balcony we could hear the traffic noise, which was not apparent inside.
The pool,bar and case storage (when leaving) we're all fantastic. I would give it 5 stars but it's not new enough for that.
Value for money,it was. Last minute.com made sure we got good value.
The beach, shops, stores, nail salon, are all minutes away from this hotel which is sited in Porta Banus where you can shop for €250,ooo watches and shoes to die for. mackdonalds , Kentucky and sousi all 5 minutes away. I found the location fantastic, ships and boats as well as cars that are normaly only seen in films. I ate breakfast at the local tavern next door, where the prices were the same as the hotel,where you got more for your €8.
A very good hotel in a great location which I would use again and recommend.

This hotel is ideal for hen and stag parties. However don't be fooled by the photos on their website. Aside from the entrance this is hotel that is very 80's in style. It's well looked after but it's not modern like the website suggests.

It's a 5 minute walk from the hotel to the main bars and the marina. The rooms were cleaned daily and were large. They were basic but as this place is ideal for hens/stags, the rooms need not be anything better. The pool area was large with plenty of loungers. The bar served a decent range of drinks, beer was okay at 4 Euros but spirits are 7 Euros. However they do typical Spanish free pouring so you get plenty for your cash! Staff weren't exactly jolly but we had no issues during our stay.

Do not come here if you are a family or a couple looking for a quiet hotel. The security were decent on a night doing their best to quieten down the rowdy lads at 5.30am.

Breakfast is an additional 9 Euros each a day. It's a buffet and is nothing special. There's a wide range of options, cereals, fruit, Tassimo coffee, tea, juice and hot food. The hot food is very typical hotel buffet, but Puerto Banus is an expensive place and breakfast anywhere else would cost you much more.

Overall, a good stag and hen venue. Nothing special but good enough.

This hotel is a haven for stag and hen parties, there were tons of them there during my stay - which was for a stag weekend! The rooms are clean and functional, and the location is ideal for the port, beach and nightlife.
I would not recommend this hotel for families or couples if it is always like the weekend I was there - guests crawling back to their rooms at 5am does not make for a quiet away-from-it-all environ.

Room Tip: Earplugs if a light sleeper.

A perfectly situated and perfectly adequate hotel that does exactly what it says on the tin. No frills but very affordable and in a great location, just a few minutes stroll to all the action and the beach and great access to the motorway for those visiting the excellent golf courses in the area. Would go again.

I went aong with 3 girlfriends for a short break Sat-Tues (Returned 14 May) and although we had dull weather for 2 days we all came home having had a fabulous break.
The hotel is in an excellent location, within easy walking distance of the marina and many shops (In BIG trouble when hubbies get credit card bills!!!). Fabulous restuarant on the front Picassos - get there early at weekend to ensure a seat at the front and peopke watch - amazin!
Room was very spacious and cleaned every day. Shower was excellent. Kitchenette handy to keep bubbly chilled. Breakfast was great - usual cereals, yoghurts, cakes, breads, hams, cheese, pate and fresh fruit. Also cooked breakfast - all self service and a great coffee machine.
Bar closed at 11pm but that wasnt really an issue.
Checkin checkout great. We got the bus from Airport to Marbella station then taxied. Cheaper than taxiing all the way!
If you want a great relaxing time in an area with fabulous shops, easy access to Marbella (More fab shops & Orange Square - get bus just a top of road from Pyr and get off just before Burger King then take left), great restaurants and a safe resort then this is definitely the place. Probably a bit quite for children although hard to say as it was all girl parties and all men golf trips that seemed to be staying, then this place is perfect.
Dont be put off by the moaners, all you need on hol is somewhere to shower,change and then after a great night out, somewhere to sleep - beds so comfortable!!!!
Enjoy - we intend to return in September.

Room Tip: We didnt overlook pool and caught sun late evening which made sitting on balcony very pleasant

Stayed here for bank holiday weekend in the beginning of May. We arrived at around 10pm. Taxi from Malaga airport cost €110 via the toll road. We checked in took a few minutes went to our room and was greeted by the maid who was there to make up our sofa bed.

The hotel is very clean. Rooms tired looking but fine. I had the sofa bed and was comfortable.

Food served in the hotel was very nice and reasonably priced. It was a lot nicer than the meal we had on the beach which was a lot more expensive too.

We were there for a girls weekend and it seemed like the majority of people who stayed there were on some kind of Stag or Hen do.

The location of the hotel is fantastic as it is only a few minutes walk from the bars and restaurants in Puerto Banus. All in all it is fantastic value for money and I'd stay again.
