“Heaven on earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

Stayed 4 nights beginning of october..upon arrival we we're offered an upgrade to suite complimentary .....the hotel is very clean .....
Lovely relaxed atmosphere and as we travelled as a romantic couple loved the gentle pace ..
Breakfast had plenty of choice and the evening meal was a dining experience when they cooked in front of you ....
Perfect location a minute from the beach and a lovely 15 minute stroll takes you to the harbour so the location is just perfect ....
Planning to return next year simply fantastic

Visited in July 2013 and found the hotel really relaxing given the time of year and proximity of main road. Went half board and was delighted with the variety of choice at both breakfast and evening meal, which includes a chef to cook on order if the wide choice of the buffet isn't enough for you. Staff all friendly and rooms cleaned to high standard. Also a great position for evening strolls (2k) to Porto Banus to work off that buffet, which out two teenage daughters loved (window shopping and sports car spotting!)
The Aldi supermarket is handy enough if you want to save a few euro's on the standard (high) hotel prices and the hotel didn't seem to mind at all.
Rooms weren't ready when we checked in but that was soon forgotten.

Room Tip: If you want a "proper" seaview go for one of the internal ones i.e. pool side.

Just back after a week in this super hotel. We had not been there for 3 years but were delighted to see the same staff, who have, in the main, been there for ten years. It is a very quiet, clean and ultra comfortable hotel, with marvellous food, particularly from the evening buffet. can't wait to go back and would not ever consider a different hotel.

we were very pleased with this hotel..pool area, rooms, breakfast, everything was great.
Only WİFİ was not for free. Another weakness was the bathtub water. I had to run it for 3-4 minutes until really clean water was coming. Anyway would highly recommend it for price/ value.

We highly appreciate the time you spent to share your holiday experience at our IBEROSTAR Marbella Coral Beach hotel and for your kind recommendation to Tripadvisor's readers; we are delighted to read that you enjoyed your holidays among us.

We deeply apologize for the inconvenient caused by the break of the hot water pipe during your stay, this is why you unfortunately had to run the water for several minutes to have it perfectly clear, nevertheless we would like to point out that the damage was repaired as soon as we were noticed.

On the other hand we thank you for your positive mention on the comfort of your room and the quality of our breakfast buffet, the passion for gastronomy being one of the prime pillars of our company.

Once again, thank you for your praising comments, we hope that you had a pleasant journey back home and to have the pleasure of welcoming you again in our IBEROSTAR hotels in the most beautiful destinations worldwide.

We decided to take a 5 night break in October to set us up before the cold winter in the UK. We had 5 days of beautiful sunshine with clear blue skies - bliss. Had the most spectacular Junior Suite on the third floor - central with view over the sea and pool - bliss. All the same staff here and they all remembered us from our previous visit. Sea Soul Beach Club was just perfect for lunch. Only one negative comment - having stayed at The Grand Salome in Tenerife - felt the buffet for dinner could have been better - we ate there two nights as the Sea Soul was closed. Shame as we visited the local restaurant on the Beach Front which was outside and it was not chilly at all. Having said that the staff could not do enough for you - made our stay - just like family. Must mention Jet 2 Holidays as they offered us the best rates and the private transfers were perfect taking the toll road which only took 25 minutes to the hotel.
Just to say we will be back next year - even if its for a long weekend. See you soon Coral Beach.

Room Tip: Have a room on the third floor pool view/sea view and a junior suite if you can.

Helpfull reception, service is very good
Excellent breakfast,
The bathroom is ready for renovation, it can be cleaner...
Room is spacious , beds are good, Airconditioning is working correctly
Sometimes the maid takes out your second card which is needed for Airconditioning.

Puerto Banus Port is +- 15 minute walking from hotel. Taxi is about 7,-- EUR
Upgrade to halfboard EUR 20,-- or EUR 30,-- EUR p/p/d which is expensive compared to some restaurants in Puerto Banus.
