We spent 3 nights at this hotel at the end of May. My teenage children loved being close to the beaches, shops, cafes and restaurants - it was so easy to just walk everywhere. The Old Town was so much better than we had expected, with lots of gift shops, boutiques and fantastic restaurants. We enjoyed eating out every night, sitting watching the world go by. It felt safe and relaxed. Lots of families with younger children too. We hired bikes from just behind the hotel and cycled to Puerto Banus - an hours cycle ride on the flat promenade - lovely!! There is a great shopping centre with Zara, Mango, Pull and Bear, H & M etc at the back of Puerto Banus, worth a visit if you like clothes shopping!! Would definately come back to this hotel for a short break. The only downside was the pool was 'mobbed' in the afternoons with not enough sunchairs, so get there early!!
