Just back from a week all inclusive and, for what we paid, we had an excellent holiday. Yes there are areas that can be improved but positives definitely outweigh the negatives.
Although all inclusive we like to go out and about so for those who want to venture outside the hotel:
Bus to Puerto Banus or Marbella. Bus stops right outside the hotel and costs no more than 1 Euro 50 for about a 20 minute bus trip to Marbella - superb value!!! Flyblu boat back from Marbella to Puerto Banus - 8 Euros 50 for a nice little half hour trip along the coast. To go in the opposite direction take the bus to San Pedro or, further along the coast Estepona. Again - very very cheap on the bus!! Didn't check out the times of the buses as they come along every half hour so if you miss one, the next one won;t be long in coming along.
If you like walking - come out of the hotel at the side entrance near to the main pool and walk down to the beach - head along to the right and a half hour walk will take you to San Pedro. However, if you want to go shopping in San Pedro you need to take a right off the prom walk when you get to San Pedro. The wee centre is about 20 minute walk inland. If you walk along the beach in the opposite direction you will come to Puerto Banus. A shorter walk than San Pedro and very nice wandering along the harbour admiring the boats!! Taxis to and from Puerto Banus around 6 Euros 50. A taxi to Marbella a bit pricier at around 16 Euros (plus tip).
So - plenty to do out and about without spending a fortune. Beach was good but price for 2 beds and umbrella was a bit pricey at 14 Euros!
Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
