This aparthotel offers the best of both worlds. I spent a relaxing week here in early September. The BEACH is just a few steps from the hotel. You also have easy access to the PROMENADE that runs alongside the beach for miles in each direction, lined with shops and restaurants at various points, and running all the way to the glitzy neighboring town of Puerto Banus (about a 1.5 hour walk along the beach if you're up for it, incidentally). Or if you're like me, you'd prefer to visit to the charming OLD TOWN, with its authentic local restaurants, shops, Moorish architecture, and citadel. It's only about 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel, so you can go back and forth, if you like. In between, there is a large boulevard with more contemporary shopping, pharmacies, restaurants, and other conveniences...anything you need (new shoes? sunscreen? camera? travel agency? real estate agency?), you'll be able to find it here. 24-hr supermarket around the corner (5 minutes maximum walk, I'd say) from hotel, so you can buy any food basics you need, including bakery items, snacks, cheeses, any real groceries you like). All of which comes in handy, as the rooms are equipped with a REFRIGERATOR, STOVETOP, DISHES, SILVERWARE (cleaning supplies were not included!)
My room had TWO TWIN BEDS large walk-in closet, dresser, SMALL DINING TABLE with 2 chairs, a COUCH, TV, and BALCONY with table/2 chairs. I wasn't lucky enough to secure a balcony with a sea view, but I did have a nice view of the hills and palm trees in the distance which I grew very fond of. I'd call it a comfortable, specious budget room with lots of light.
ROOFTOP POOL is nice with good views. By afternoon, I noticed people had staked out their lounge chairs by leaving their towels and belongings behind, but in the morning and evening, I had no trouble finding space.
Staff were friendly and helpful, and they have information on day tours if you ask. I would definitely go back.
