I have given this hotel excellent totally credited to the staff. They are hard working always smiling and take time to chat whenever possible.

There are plenty of sun beds and the... More

Spent 3 nights here in sept 16 and can't fault the hotel at all. Helpful and friendly staff. Room and facilities spotless. The hotel is very popular with Spanish families and lots of young children there during our stay. Now for the location. If you want to be in Puerto banus then this probably isn't the best option for you.... More

We were very impressed with the hotel when we arrived, the room was nice with a big bed and a lovely bathroom. Very clean and all the staff worked very hard. Nice points that the bar staff would regularly bring drinks out offering to people around the pool, entertainment staff very committed, the food I would say was average. We... More
