I have just returned back from a weekend in puerto banus and am slightly disappointed by the place. Although it is stunning by day with beautiful designer shops and huge yachts, by night i felt a bit unsafe in certain areas and surrounded by old drunken men!
Myself and Best friend decided on going for a girly weekend to have some good meals and go to some nice bars and clubs, but when we found ourselves on the 'strip' it was full of drunken men everywhere and with bar staff harrasing you to go into their bars. There were also lots of prostiutes about and mens clubs and it seems the place is predominantly marketed towards the stag do market. Obviously being may this wasnt the height of the season and so i think during the summer months maybe there are more women and young people.
Despite this we did eat in some great places, Khans indian restaurant was great and astral cocktail bar which are both at the very end of the strip and were out of the way.
Overall I believe this is a place you have to visit at least once, due to it being so renowned. It was very expensive and clubs were at least 25 euros to get in and some were not even very nice. Its very multi cultural and the people are very friendly but i wont be going out of my way to go back here!!!
