This hotel has a great location, being a stone's throw from the old town and 5 minutes from the beach. . Just make sure that you pay a bit more and ask for a refurbished room (4th to 6th floors) and avoid the lower floors which will be renovated in due course. Absolutely fantastic breakfast! Quiet & friendly service. At the Reception, ask for Sonia Alvirez, please. She provided excellent service and also speaks very good English. Ask her also for restaurant tips around the hotel Family-own business. Father (GM) and the son (Deputy GM) are pretty much on the premises every day and very approachable. Car parking in Marcado Municipal is less than a 5 mins walk. Public transportation right in front of the hotel. PS Noise insulation between room is not great but bearable

The one and only thing about this hotel is the location, which is excellent but that is it. I don't know where they got the pictures on this website but our room was the darkest dingest room I have stayed in. The walls are laughable they are so thin, you can hear every snore and fart from your neighbours (and that is not from next door either) The staff are very pleasant but my god the whole place needs major overall. AVOID EVEN WITH THE LOCATION

I am very happy to casually have chosen this hotel. I had to travel to Marbella for a surgery and I was very concerned about where to recover, well I found this hotel and I could not be more happy especially the first impression meeting at the reception Nacho who was very kind and reliable and met all my needs! It might not be a 5star but it is definitely close enough. Thank you and thanks to Nacho !

I had been here for 2 nights cause I have to do a research in the village. Staff was nice, they made a picnic for me because I wouldn´t be able to have breakfast at the hotel. Nothing to complaint for.
