“This was our 3rd visit and won't be our last”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

The Mojitos are the BEST I've EVER had...and that includes in Cuba. The staff are exceptionally friendly, personal and helpful.The grounds are immaculate and very very quiet. There is a small charge to use the beach club however, which I didn't understand, but other than that we couldn't fault this lovely hotel. It's just a short walk along th beach into Puerto Banus and a short 10E taxi ride into Marbella centre.
We love it and feel like we are the only giests there every time we go ! We really do get spoiled

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet non smoking room however all the rooms are lovely

Very nice 4-star hotel. The rooms are renovated and very beautiful. The service is excellent and everybody very helpful. The location is great. It is on walking distance (along the sea) from Porto Banus and Marbella.
The beach club is a beautiful area nearly in the sea. You have to pay extra though but is worth the money, because of the location and the quietness. It is almost a private area.
There is however not enough shade because they can't put enough parasols because of the strong winds sometimes. There is also a possibility to go a private beach area.
The main swimming pool is nice but can be crowded at times. There everything is free of charge.
We only had bed and breakfast to have complete freedom, so we really can't judge dinner. Breakfast however is a marvellous buffet.
. Our holiday was great.We will certainly go back

Room Tip: a junior suite

The hotel is located near Puerto Banus( 1km). The bus to Marbella stops in front of the hotel (15 min). The staff was very friendly( espacially Christobal). The room was big, with a large balcony. The front doors from the rooms were difficult to close softly. Because of that and the tin walls you have troubles with the noise. The room was a little bit sober, but clean. My room was on the 2th floor, with a nice seaview. In general the quality of the food was good, but there wasn't so many choice. The choice of the drinks included in the all-in was limited. The extra cost you pay for the all-in is very high, it's a pitty that you have limited choice. There was a sandy beach near the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor.

We were all inclusive for a week. Hotel and rooms are very nice. Good location for walking into Puerto Banus and we also walked to Marbella centre. You can get the bus outside the hotel to Marbella for 1.16 Euros. The price appears to be fixed where ever you get it. Easy way to get around. The food was very nice but as with any all inclusive it is not the same as going out for a meal and whilst it isn't the same every day - it tends to feels that way. Good choice at breakfast. Lunch was generaly salad selections, freshly cooked chicken, steak or fish, shellfish, pizza, pasta, chips and a good selection of gorgeous desserts. In the evening you are given a wine menu and you can choose many free of charge with all inclusive but some have a supplement. These are marked with an * and a price next to this. This was also the same for some of the drinks but there was plenty to choose from. Sunbeds by pool were busy and the beach restaurant and beach sunbeds are not included in all inclusive. For us there was not a great deal to do, but at a cost of £1000 each all inclusive including flights, transfers etc it seemed good value. I would recommend this hotel.

Not all rooms overlook the pool or sea which someone previously mentioned. Ours overlooked a side road, but this was not a problem. Hotel is very clean. Waiter service in bar area is not the best with some of the staff choosing to straighten napkins or put cutlery away and ignoring the guests. The restaurant service was excellent. All staff are very nice.

I have stayed in and around the Banus area 4 times in the last few years and found this to be the best choice around. Its 10 minutes walk from Banus itself, but that in itself is a good thing. Its a pleasant seafront walk and its a good escape from the hustle of Banus. Theres also a steady stream of taxis waiting outside the hotel...Marbella is only a short taxi drive away and if you enjoy good food, take the 20 min taxi journey to Benahavis and enjoy some excellent restaurants (at good prices)

The hotel is very clean, modern (ish) roomsthat are large with balconies, although the sea is only slightly visible from the balcony - one of ours was a triple room, which came with pull out double sofa bed and there was plenty of room and wardrobe space for 3. The other 2 person room was virtually identical. Its expensive,these rates would probably get yout the very best elsewhere, but given the area your staying in - its quality to price is pretty good, although charging 3 euros a day for the room safe, seems a bit harsh - given the price you have already paid to stay

Pool area and the beach bar area they have seemed to cope well enough with the number of guests, so there were no problems getting a sunbed. It has a nice peaceful atmosphere. Very friendly staff coming round regularly to give you free sangrias / cocktails or to take your drinks order..theres also a few activities for children based away from the pool area, so it wasnt nosiy. 50 yards from poolside is the beach and their beach side pool area.

Hotel food - Buffet Breakfast had a good variety, we only ate at the poolside once and to be honest it wasnt great, especially for the price. We all had rather sorry looking meals , however just a few minutes walk along the beach front is an excellent fish beach restaurant..Drinks were also expensive, however in keeping with the whole of Banus really!

I don´t normally write this type of reviews but I thought I´d share our Wonderful and memorable experience with other travellers.

We have just arrived from our 2 weeks vacation at Coral Beach and we have just loved it! We left our kids at home and wanted to escape and just relax for a few days and this was the perfect destination.

Everything at the hotel is what we have expected, from the decoration of the rooms (entirely renovated), the service at the Restaurants, people in the south of Spain are really nice and welcoming.

They also have a nice and quiet spa with very reasonable prices.

We dined one night at the Beach Club and the location is perfect right in front of the Mediterranean and food is great.

Puerto Banús is just 10 minutes walking distance from the Hotel is the perfect place for shopping, you will also find a huge variety of restaurants to dine and also bars and clubs for afterward drinks.
