My friend and I have just returned from a week's stay in this lovely hotel. Great location close to the beach and the old town which is really beautiful- lovely restaurants and shops. Reception staff were excellent, helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable, bed linen, shower,towels all first class. All areas of the hotel were spotlessly clean. We... More

My friends & I Stayed at the hotel for a week in September. I would say the biggest plus is the location as you are right in the middle of the old town & only a 5min walk to the beach, the rooms are lovely and clean & the staff are friendly. The main down sides are it was quite... More

Price quality one of the best hotels! Especially Susana and her team are doing all to make you feel @ home. The hotel is located on the best place, it's just a minute from the sea and near the city center where you find shops and restaurants. The first time that I couldn't make any negative remarks. It was all... More

The Hotel is located opposite the Fountain close to Orange Square & the beach. It is very clean and the reception staff are very helpful. They offer a great value for money breakfast. There is a safe for an additional charge of 1.50 euros per day Will definitely stay here again

We were very happy at this hotel; the room was spacious and clean and most importantly quiet. I could not hear a peep from next door, occasionally only from the corridor if people were coming or going or just being a bit loud. We were on the top floor, overlooking a narrow side street and the mountains in the distance.... More

Myself and 2 friends stayed in the hotel in Aug this year and found the location to be exactly what we needed. A leisurely 5 min walk to the beach in Marbella for daytime, and directly opposite the bus stop which takes u to Puerto Banus(2euro) or taxi rank which is 15 euro each way for the nightlife. The staff... More

During our stay we had an issue with the car park system - the Director of the hotel dealt with this personally and sorted very effectively and very kind with us. We will be back there again. Thank you for all.
