Hotel was perfect, modern, and clean. Food was good and a decent price. The pool and bar area had a proper party going on in the day. hot crowd and hot weather. Perfect place for your weekend in Marbella.

The rooms are nice (a bit to warm, the airco doesn't really seems to work), since the hotel is recently renovated, but they are not very "design" like the hotel claims to be.

When we were there the rooftop terrace wasn't open yet, but it will open soon and looks like it is going to be nice. The pool area is already open. This is definitly why you should stay in the hotel!

To the port of Puerto Banus it is a 20 minute walk, so we used the car/taxi every nigth to go out.

Room Tip: White rooms (3rd floor) are nicest!!

this hotel was absolutely disgusting before you even walk into the main reception it looks like a construction site. The inside of this hotel is designed like a brothel, the black padded leather walls at the main reception area weren't even the worst part.
The pool area would have been really nice apart from the constant group of chav's hanging out there and the pumping rave music which started from early in the morning.
Some of the staff were very friendly and helpful however it was the mangement who are in serious need of a course in customer service, especially the girl at the reception desk that appears to be running the place.
We decided not to let our choice of accomodation ruin our holiday and so we avoided the hotel at all costs, except of course sleeping.
on the last night of our stay i was particularly disgusted to a whole new level when i was woken at 2am to the sound of two guys outside our hotel room negotiating prices with a prostitute. When they finally went away i was able to fall back to sleep only to be woken 30mins later by our neighbours buddy's who had come back up to his room to find out how he got on. Obviously due to the events of the night before we slept in the next morning and were 30 mins late for check out, only to be charged an extra €50.
please, please take my advice and do not stay at this hotel !

I love this Hotel, is modern, different and they are not scared to do things that blow your mind. They have a beautifull pool area and a sexy restaurant, food is very good.
If you don´t want to stay in a boring traditional place, this is the Hotel for you, DJ´by the pool and nice cocktails ,young and fun....Remind me of las Vegas, me and my friends have a great time,Sisu take care of us from the aiport to the nightclubs....Defenitly not a hotel for old people!!

Travelled with a bunch of blokes on a weekend stag. I turned up at reception and the first impression was "Christ its a knocking shop"

The red and black studded walls and chinese dragon sculptures raised eyebrows.

As did the desk staff who appeared to have been recruited for their looks and abilty to wear tight dresses rather than efficiency and professionalism.

The muscles bulging tattoed "staff" lurking around in reception appeared to have more in common with a dubious night club than a "boutique" hotel

The rooms were adequate but fairly tastelessly decorated and every room had a SISU painted on the wall in case you forgot where you were. The black nylon duvet covers were Sisu "in a nutshell"

Room and corridor lighting were appaling, how any female guests could put on makeup in the bathrooms is a mystery

The door swipe cards of our group repeatedly failed and needed changing

The food was great. The service from the bar staff was fast and furious and all were friendly and considerate although food bar snack orders were, on one occasion catastrophically wrong and couldn't have got worse unless the waiter tripped and chucked the food over us.

The poolside area is awesome, comfy cool and functional, the jewel in the crown of the hotel but leads on to the bigggest problem with the hotel........The staff and the owners mates seemed to over populate the area and it sometimes felt like they were doing the punters a favour by letting them in to their own personal hotel....

A hotel is for guests not the staff and their mates to swan around on their down time

To conclude, a reasonable hotel with great facilities, it just needs to get the staff up to speed professionally and alter the "Tone" of the place which needs to move from "bank robber" to boutique

Room Tip: take some lube

Not sure where to start, tacky decor, bad finish, poor management all made my stay a total bore.
Blinds in rooms make it so light you can't sleep past daylight, standard was below my expectations, no spa treatments, uninspiring views, inexperienced manager - the list goes on.
If you wanted to go to a tacky nightclub Sisu would be ideal but if they want to portray a luxurious boutique hotel they are far from it as they need both class and style for this which they seriously lack.
I'm sure the manager once managed a bar or something but that's a different kettle of fish to a 'luxury' hotel.
Drinks and food overpriced and quality of towels etc poor. Exterior does still very much look like a building site and I did see works going on whilst there. No roof terrace as yet and seemingly no intention of things improving.
How on earth they expect to compete with the likes of Don Carlos I will never know...

If you are thinking about holidaying here then can I also suggest Afganistan, Lybia or the local Salvation Army Hostel as good alternatives

I was there as part of a group and I gladly did not stay at the hotel but had to endure thier attempt at food preperation at a party

The Hotel was unfinished having had a recent reburb which was clearly a work in progress- with bare wires protuding from the unpainted walls in the dinning area, lihts which failed to work, the interesting brick dust scum layer on the pool, and finally the novel vesuvius toilets which were unusable.
The food ? well if Mum goes to Iceland and then undercooks it - then you may be in heaven - the inventive set piece food was two chicken breasts (mine both uncooked and running with blood) frozen chipsand an Iceland desert

Drinks prices varied at each purchase with the staff trying their best to battle against the odds in almost Dunkirk style. They were the best thing about the evening, but it was interesting to note that none of them woked there and had been called in at short notice- a fact they were enthusiastic to tell us

In fairness I was given a strange gloopy rice dish which was the vegitarian option as a replacement meal- a sad attempt at either a Paella or Risotto although I am not sure even having travelled most of the world and eaten in a variety of places
My opinion is that they should not have opened this place up until the work had been completed-
Even when completed this however would do little for its approach or location
My advice save your money or burn it in the back garden
