This resort is in a great setting along the sea promenade with lovely views and only 5 minutes from the old town of Marbella. It is a large and busy place. The rooms are nice, but a little tired. The breakfast buffet is wonderful, with a huge spread and very efficient and helpful staff. There are two pools with one... More

All in all a great... More

We are just back from our vacation we stayed at the hotel for 5 nights 13-18 august. To begin with the best is the hotel staff, I don't know how they manage to be that cheerful at all times.

You are only a couple of steps to the beach and a five minute walk to the lovely " Orange Square" which has the most lovely authentic shops and restaurants and... More
