“Loved it!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Stayed here May 2012 with a group of hens - couldn't have chosen better! This hotel is wild and is full of hen, stag parties and groups of people looking to have fun. The rooms are basic, clean and have everything you could need. The location of the hotel is perfect! Staff can be very strict but I think they need to be to keep some order.
If your looking for a crash pad for a girls/boys holiday then this is the place for you... couples and families I would say steer clear!

I stayed at the PYR Puerto Banus with a group of friends in August 2012. Herewith some quick notes:

- location: good from the standpoint of being near Puerto Banus center (10 mins walking distance from port), and near the beaches (again 10 mins from closest one, same from e.g. Ocean Club). There are other hotels even better located but this one is good enough. Downside of location: a busy motorway is nearby which implies some noise coming from there.

- facilities and rooms: basic, two swimming pools, one for children, very busy swimming pool area, very difficult to find a sunbed during peak hours. Just one restaurant with VERY limited menu. I dont think there is a gym. One or two small tennis courts. Wifi in common areas and rooms (slow and sometimes faulty but free of charge). A small fridge and kitchen in the room with some kitchen tools (which I didn't feel like using). The room has a nice terrace with some plastic chairs and a table. Air con at the room worked alright for me. Ample rooms. Very old TV. In general rooms call strongly for renovation.

- service: on the plus side, most service staff tried to be nice. Happy with the attitude of the guys from restaurant and of most of the service staff in the hotel. What I dont like is their resposiveness to fixing issues once reported. More than once and twice on the same topic I've been told "I send a guy to look at it" and never happened. I gave up trying at some point. Quite annoying in fact.

- cleanness: just ok. Most of the time the room (bathroom in particular) is dirty because they don't provide enough towels (neither, of course, sleepers, etc). General feeling of cleanliness is just ok. I think the cleaning ladys do a good job but the looks of the room (quite wear off) leave a less clean impression.

- sleep quality. Some very noisy neighbours even quite late in the afternnon. During the day, some noises coming from the swimming pool. Courtains do not cover the light completelly. Beware if your sleeping is sensitive to light. Rooms, sheets and pillows are ok. No choices though.

- bottomline: good location, basic 3 stars-like hotel.

Room Tip: Good enough for going with friends to enjoy beaches and partying. I wouldn't personally chose it...

Stayed here many times with a golfing crowd. Clean, Comfortable and perfectly placed for night life. Prostitutes abound on the Puerto Banus Port and aggressively ply their trade.Beware of pickpockets also.

On reading reviews I thought this hotel might be a bit loud and full of only stag and hen dos. Although there were some, there was a mix of people in this hotel, families and couples and it was easy to stay out of the way of the loud groups if you wanted.

Rooms were very clean, spacious, have a small kitchen area, sofa and table. Bathrooms good size. Maid service was great and supplied us with clean towels every day. Pool good size and plenty of sunloungers throughout the day. Food served by the pool is reasonable and standard food, service can be a bit slow at times but the staff are polite and friendly. We booked half board option, worth having the breakfast which runs until 12 and has selection of pastries, fruit, cereal, cooked breakfast. Half board option allowed an afternoon/evening meal from a set menu. The meal could be ordered anytime of day if you let the staff know you're half board, ideal if you need lunch then go out to a restaurant for dinner. Selection on menu isn't amazing but food isn't bad and we found out the day before we left you can order food from the bar menu as half board if you wanted something other than the set menu!

Location amazing, 5 minute walk to bars and clubs, 5 minute walk to beach, but far enough not to hear all the noise.

If you are planning a trip to Marbella and want a clean and local hotel to the bars, this is ideal.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor near the pool if you don't want to hear the stag/hen dos getting drunk in the...

Hotel is fine a little dated but ideal location! Rooms are large and have eating areas and small kitchen. Pool area is fine but next to a motorway! Definately for groups!! Quiet though! About 10 mins from main nightlife and harbour! 15 mins walk to nice beach!

If you are looking for a hotel which caters for groups of girls/boys, this place is ideal. It is near to all the nightlife & the atmosphere round the pool area in the day is very good, as its full of fellow groups (aged mainly 23-35). The price of a beer is 3 euro's (very important!!!!) in the hotel which is very reasonable for Puerto Banus. If i go back to Marbella/Puerto Banus with the boys i will stay here. If i go back with my wife, i will more than likely stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: I would recommend Route 66 for food (about a 2 minute walk from hotel). Food is very good & staf...

We arrived here on spec and checked in, room very basic but clean. My children fancied a swim so we went down to the pool and when we went through the door I couldn't believe that the management allowed a family to check in. It was packed full of 18-30's. The language was appalling, cigarettes in the pool and certainly no place for children. I would've probably loved it 20 years ago but come on PYR use some common sense! We hastily checked out and left the young ones to party!
