This hotel could be much better if they had seperate entertainment for adults and children. Entertainment is outside by the bar and children are up till after 12 at night running around, most are toddlers, lots of young mothers with babies there. Not very good for single people.
Entertainment was not very good. Food not to special but plenty of snacks through out the day.
Nice beach only 10 mins walk away, free bus into Porte Blanco but only three times aday.
Some people were over doing it with the free drinks gets a bit roudy, lots of hen and stag parties going on too.

Room Tip: Top floor over Tennis courts

Me and my friend visited Cortijo Blanco for a week in June 2013. We arrived early hours after a 2 hour transfer and were dealt with immediately and issued a room next to the tennis courts which I had requested prior to our arrival.
The hotel is typically Spanish, with various courtyards and well landscaped gardens. Although not of much interest to me, the older guests seem to find the foliage interesting.
The pool is okay, never a shortage of sun beds even at the busiest of times. We preferred basking on the solarium which is a raised balcony. It was quieter here as it was not frequented by children. The pool area itself is quite acceptable for a 3 star.
The food was okay,slightly repetitive and could be better but no complaints as I feel it was excellent value for money. Should you get fed up of the food, then don't be so tight and take your partner out for a meal instead!!
The bar was a massive draw to the package, great vibe at night and when it shuts at 12 people would move across the road to Buddies Bar to continue the evening. Previous reviews say the bar staff were rude or miserable, I completely disagree and found them to be quite polite and fun when we engaged in banter. In all fairness they do well to pour drinks all day and night for non paying customers!
The hotel itself is located in San Pedro near to a busy road. It is a 25 minute stroll into Puerto Banus harbour or a 6 euro taxi. There is also a free shuttle 3 times a day that is quite serviceable.
Due to the price of the hotel it does attract stag and hen parties, for us, it was an additional source of entertainment and we ended up mingling in between them all. But I do understand how people with different expectations from a holiday would disagree. Attending this hotel with low expectations will leave you pleasantly surprised. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will return next year for 4days.

So glad we ignored the negative reviews. It was our 8yr old grandaughters 1st holiday abroad and she enjoyed every moment. We were welcomed at reception. Lyn our thompsons rep showed us the way to our room. Excellent room overlooking tennis courts and paddling pool. Food varied hot and good choices. Granddaughter loved the chocolate eclairs!!All the staff were friendly, talkative and helpful. The whole holiday was such good value for the money paid. We must make a special mention to Lyn our Thompsons rep. She must be the best rep we have ever met. so friendly, helpful and full of information. She never seemed to be off duty! Thanks Lyn!!

Room Tip: Quiet rooms ..ask for tennis court location. Lively ask for main pool and square

Stayed late May/early June - Spacious clean room in Almeria block with a balcony.The pool and all areas spacious,clean and well maintained.The gardens and courtyards are immaculate adourned with beautiful flowers and shrubs.Nothing was too much trouble the staff were extremely good in a well managed hotel.The entertainment team and acts in the evening were good. The ladies and gentlemen running the free central bar in the Plaza were always pleasant and even remembered your drinks.Food was off good quality adapting too all nationalities.Bar-b-que was excellent.One thing too note because the hotel is adjacent to San Pedro the free transfer time from Malaga can be up to 2 hours - but well worth it when you arrive.

Room Tip: It you want it lively ask for rooms around the pool and Plaza - If you want it quiet ask for rooms a...

As long as you realise you are getting your stay here at a decent price and it is a 3 star hotel you will be fine! As previous people have said there are a lot of stag & hen parties and indeed I was there with a group of 12 other girls and everyone seemed friendly and well behaved that we met.

We had paid for a superior room which I think gave us an extra metre on our balcony! We were in a room at the front of the hotel around the courtyard and it could get a bit noisy in the early hours when people arrived back after a night out. The room was very clean and the communal areas were very well kept.

The food was good but I imagine if you stay for more than a few nights it could get a bit monotonous - they seemed to love their pork and you might be hard pushed if you are a vegetarian. Great selection of drinks under AI including cocktails.

The only issue we had which was nothing to do with the hotel was that they ordered taxis for us and on a couple of occasions they didn't show up....

I would stay here again but only on a girlie trip, I wouldn't want to take my children just because of some of the language being used around the pool.

Very good value for money & a great base for Puerto Banus.

Room Tip: For a quieter life request a room round the tennis court.
