“Everything you need for a lively holiday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Great location. Few minutes walk to Port/bars/clubs/beach and transport links. Lively pool area. Alot of groups of young adults up for a party. No music at pool. Rooms very large. Very clean. Nice room maids, friendly and helpfull. Breakfast typical. Toast/ fruit/cereal and limited hot items. No water!!! Overall attitude of hotel staff was poor. No information on excursions and reception staff very rude. Staff were only downfall. Overall great base for seeing the area or for having a party holiday.

Great location if you do not mind 24 hour non stop traffic noise from the dual carriage motorway directly adjacent this huge Hotel. We stayed here 15 years ago & remarked it needed refurbishment then & it looks like nothing happened since. The reason the rooms are cheap is self evident the moment you open the door into the bedrooms, truly dreadful. Its really a budget hotel without the comfortable beds & the towels are worn out, the bathroom / toilet constantly had bad smells which even strong bleach could not correct.
You can walk to the Port & shops but thats about it & the pool area was packed all day with drunken young teenagers, plus the bar snacks were just terrible & luke warm. So would we book there again... certainly not.

Room Tip: Would suggest try any other cheap Hotel than this one if you want a decent bed & away from the c...

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.
