My friend and I shared a twin self catering room in this hotel and it was pretty much exactly what we expected for the money. It was spotlessly clean and functional for our few days in Marbella but there were not many luxeries. In the room the beds were comfortable, good powerful shower, small balcony with table and 2 chairs, basic kitchen crockery and utensils for 2 but there was no electric kettle - just a tin one to boil on the hob and the main problem was the temperature. The rooms do have air conditioning but there is no thermastat or controls, it is just operated by an on/off switch on the wall by the door. It was efficient for cooling the room quickly but at night we were constantly having to get out of bed to switch between it being on and off i.e. boiling or freezing. The communal areas of the hotel were not air conditioned and unbearably warm. The roof terrace is a nice little sun trap with views over the old town round one side and the sea on the other and there were plenty of loungers for everyone but the pool is very small so not really any good for swimming lengths. I would not recommend having lunch in the restaurant, I ordered a chicken sandwich and was disappointed to receive 2 slices of sliced white bread filled with predominantly mayonnaise with a few chunks of grey looking chicken through it. However it was fine for a Sprite and a plates of fries as a snack. A great perk of this hotel is it's location though, you are within 5 or 10 mins walk of loads of highly rated restaurants. Ultimately you get what you pay for with added points for location.
