There is nothing wrong with this hotel, the rooms are clean, a reasonable size and everything works, it also has parking and free WiFi but that is about it.
Other reviewers praise it's location so I wrongly assumed it was close to places where we could pop out for breakfast. It is a good 15 minute walk from Puerto Banus (quite a nice walk but a long way for a coffee) and three miles in the other direction to Marbella proper.
The staff on reception were very helpful and the swimming pools looked good but the whole place lacks any character whatsoever. It is a big modern hotel, great for a business trip, not so good for a holiday.
