This is not one building but several town houses close to each other - each with its own slightly different character and style.
We had breakfast in one building (down the road) which had a pool. Our building did not. It was opposite the main reception, which had a roof terrace. If you care about having a pool or a roof terrace, make sure you know which rooms are in which building.
I loved the quality of the decor and design and the friendly and personal service couldn't be beaten. The hoteliers really strive to send everyone away happy and feeling they were well looked after.
The buildings are all town houses, and our room at least, was on the ground floor and therefore quite dark - the narrow streets and pedestrians mean the rooms are shuttered.
Marbella is a reasonably lively town so this is not the place for insomniacs or people who want a long slow lie in - but the hotel is perfectly located if you don't want to drive and don't want to be on the beach itself.
We loved it and I would stay there again - possibly trying to get into the house with the pool next time - to avoid the walk to breakfast.
It apparently only rains about four days a year in this part of Spain - but it managed to rain the entire time we were in Marbella (four days). Marcos very sweetly treated us to a taxi and tour of Mijas - entirely of his own volition. Kind of him - and we managed to get above the rain!
Great for couples who are content in each other's company or to wander the town (there is an amazing flamenco bar within walking distance). For grown up travellers who like hotels that are different! We even managed to find a small bar in the old town that Marcos hadn't heard of...result!
