“DONT STAY HERE IF YOU WANT ANY SLEEP”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Booked a 3 night stay in September, but only stayed one night due to the noise. Caters for young guest's coming in at 4 am in the morning. No consideration for other guests. The walls are so thin, you can hear chairs scrapping on the floors, even a cough from the apartment next door.
Lovely apartments but built very badly with no insulation in the walls.
Requested to move rooms the following morning but were told they were fully booked. So we requested a refund, as the Manager said she could not guarantee that the guests would be quiet that night. She refused to offer us the refund for the 2 nights, as she said the guests might be quiet. We were not prepared to take that risk when on a 3 night break, so checked out.
Emailed the main Manager when we returned home but he still refused to offer us a refund.
Would never stay here again, its such a shame but they cater for the 20 something age group, who are coming in at all hours of the morning, banging doors, scraping chairs, shouting etc.

Room Tip: If you require a quiet holiday wher you can sleep at night, this is not for you.

We have just returned from a 9 night stay at Vasari Resort in Puerto Banus. The start of the vacation could have been better but Vasari more than made up for this. A word of warning for any of you that are considering renting a car from Goldcar! We traveled as a group of 4 adults (with 4 large suitcases) and decided it would be much more efficient to rent the car from the terminal building of the airport. BIG MISTAKE!!!

There was a ridiculously long queue and it was clear this was going to be a long wait. So much so, my the fellow travellers were forced to get a taxi to Vasari (at a cost of €100) or be forced to stay with me for what turned out to be a three hour (yes 3 hours) wait to collect my hire car. What a farce. When will people in the travel industry learn to consider the poor customer for once? Goldcar are obviously aware of the queue times and ignore the issue. Not so much as an apology for this disgraceful pretence of a service. Also, the practice of "Full Tank of Fuel Out - Empty tank of Fuel in" (and charging you up front is clearly a "Ryanairesque" method of screwing the customer further.
!
GOLDCAR, shame on you...........Fellow Car Hire customers beware!!!!!!

Vasari Resort Puerto Banus is a lovely resort away from the hustle and bustle of Puerto Banus but still only a 10 minute walk away! Rooms are well maintained as are the grounds and the pool.

One criticism would be the snack bar area at the pool. We have been coming to Vasari for many years now and have seen this snack bar being run by many different people and none of them have got it remotely right to date!

Please Vasari management look at this. It is letting your image down. On the other hand, the Vasari Bistro is a lovely set up but for some unknown reason is not supported by the majority of guests. If you're going to keep the snack bar open then for god's sake get it right. Make sure the food and drinks on the menus are actually available. It would have been easier for the staff to tell us what they had in stock as the list was shorter than what they didn't have. The standard of service in the snack bar was poor with the staff more interested in how loud they could play thier music!.

On the very positive side, Maria and Pacqui at reception are nice people and always make the guest feel very welcome.

See you all at Vasari soon.

Room Tip: All rooms are of equal standard

Dear Mr. Nimmo:

We are sorry for the inconveniences of the car hire, next time ask us for a pick up service from the airport in Malaga.

Thank you very much for your feedback, we will use them to improve service in all aspects

Booked this resort for a three day break with three friends. The resort exceeded all our expectations. The staff were friendly and it was very clean. Highly recommend this resort. Ten out of ten. The bistro restaurant which is on site had beautiful food so well worth a visit.

The best (and most expensive) but luxurious hotel I've ever stayed in. The pool restaurant is a Hidden gem, lots of celebs here too so u really feel like one yourself! Will be back next year providing they dont put their prices up. Loved it.

Stayed here for two nights. It is a very nice apartment complex within a gated residential area. It is very tranquil and peaceful and a welcome change from the porto banus harbour area although it is within walking distance. The apartments are very spacious, very clean and well equipped. The pool area is very pleasant, nicely landscaped and has a pool bar. There is a restaurant in the complex also which has a lovely setting looking out on water. The man at reception was very pleasant and helpful . I felt these apartments were very good value and I would recommend them highly.

We had 10 days here from 20th August. The apartment was extremely comfortable , spacious and clean.
The pool area was clean with enough beds for everyone.
The pool bar was hit and miss, only in so much as a bottle of corona was 8 yoyos whereas a very quaff-able wine was 2.50 and a draught beer 4 yoyos. I have to say you couldn't meet a friendlier bunch of ladies in the bar mind, lovely folk.
The Vasari bistro is very nice and well worth a few visits.
The cafe does a lovely BLT too.
The resort is about10 mins from the nearest supermarkets, there a Iceland with all Brit grub and over the road you can buy booze etc
It's a bit of a hilly walk to P banus so the 7 euro taxi is recommended if you simply cant be bothered.
Circa 80 yoyos to Malaga airport
Saint Pedro is worth a visit as the food is cheap and lovely.
I would get a car next time and there will be a next time, as I would like to have gone to Gibraltar and Ronda.

Room Tip: All rooms good
