“mostly good points but a few negatives”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

10 of us stayed at the cortijo in August.Fanastic weather.we paid for a superior room, and I loved it. Really quietly situated at the back of the hotel, overlooking trees and grass,comfy and modern.my Aunt had a normal room.it was equally modern but was over the entertainment, which finishes at 12, and but she was completely happy.I really liked the hotel, it had a nice feel to it, mixing modern amd traditional decor. The hotel was situated perfectly for me. Bus stop 50 metres away.1.23 euro's to puerto banus or marbella.Taxi 8 euro's one way to Pbanus and marbella 16 euro's.You can also get to puerto banus on foot, on a safe costal bath.25 mins each way. The beach is less than 10 mins away on a straight road at the right of the hotel.This did take me 10 days to discover, and I had been taking a longer but pleasant route. The beach is pebbley but has got shingly bits. It has a lovely promanade with about 7 bars/restaurants on and takes about 20 mins to walk from one end to the other. There are two bars on the right of the hotel,never went. A supermarket, a chinese, italian and I think a thsi reastaurant very close by.On the left, virtually 5 footsteps away is buddies bar. We spent many a good time there.Prices varied for drinks but always good value. Enjoyed irish coffee, pizza, wine and superb steaks there.The negatives of this hotel are:
I am not a fussy eater, but found the food cold and unappitising. I did not starve and always found something, even if it might be a cheese and tomatoe samdwich.The lemon tart was delish, some soups were great if hot, and freshly cooked prawns were lovely. But you had to search and sometimes micro wave.plus I found the dinning room really squashed, v.hot and very stark white.I thought the majority of staff fine. Some on reception look a bit sullen and don't quite go the extra mile when your asking advice. The scottish woman v.efficient and helpful.Some of the bar staff were great including the bar manager. I'm not a lover of the restaurant staff a bit misearable.my husband hired a mobility scooter with receptions help, if anyone reading this has trouble walking. We all had a great time.But I am the only one that would go back.I loved it.Hope this helpful.

Keeping it simple, weather was great, beer was great, food was great, never struggled getting something we liked even though we are all fussy eaters, hotel has it's odd faults but the hotel is a very good 3 star, one way in and out so safe for kids , bit of a walk to beach but very flat, definetly recommend it, but if your on a lads hol or a girlie hol and want nights out you will need a taxi and Porto benous looks lovely 30 min walk, but at 7 euros a pint seemed a little much

we expected a lot better

the room was good, clean and beds were comfortable

food - the worst selection at an all inclusive hotel I've ever had, and I am not a picky eater by any means.

so much for the once a week BBQ, that didn't happen.

the wifi area was always mobbed and the signal is almost non existent, ended up going to puerto Banus to get a decent wifi signal.

the hotel is a large sprawling complex with loads of seating inside and out, but as always there is the usual scram for sunbeds, not that we bothered with them, much prefer walking.

the area is very quiet, nothing around about, apart from a supermarket and a couple of bars, and of course the ubiquitous real estate agents

a 40 minute stroll into puerto Banus and the glitz and glamour of the jet set was our daily walk, the promenade at San Pedro is good for people watching and has a really cool outdoor exercise area with cross trainers, bikes that loads of people used, couldn't imagine it lasting at home it would get wrecked

forgot about the entertainment - dire, the reps try hard but my lord really !!

the hotel staff are efficient and reasonably friendly if you at least try speaking spanish but some guests are just plain rude to them.

one thing I would say is the walls are like paper thin, woken up nearly every night with our amarous neighbours quite embarrassing in a family friendly hotel

not sure I would return, but it's a great base for seeing loads of costa del sol which is exactly what we did

We take note of all your suggestions, positives and negatives. All your opinions are always well received and for us are so important.

We just want to say about the BBQ that we have BBQ three days per week: tuesdays, thursdays and saturdays, outside by the bar and the main swimming pool. Maybe you thought that the BBQ was in the restaurant, not outside, and you didn't see it, but we always do this three times per week, since the opening until the closing.

Hope to see you back in the future. For us would be a pleasure to welcome you back.

Have just returned from here. My friend's parents decided to visit in April after we had booked this holiday. They were so please with it, so we had a good idea about it before we arrived. We absolutely loved it and didn't want to leave. The staff are lovely, and work extremely hard. Our shower didn't work the first night, it wouldn't turn off. The maintenance men came within no time, and totally replaced the taps, as well as sorting out our air conditioning. Food was lovely, I shall miss having food prepared for me! I have 2 children, aged 12 and 9. They didn't really bother with the entertainment but made friends and had a great time. Our only slight gripe was that the bedding wasn't changed during our 11 night stay. Otherwise, would definitely go back and recommend to anyone. My friend's parents have already booked to go back again in October! Great value for money, thank you

This is our 4th visit to this hotel, and each time we have experienced a great time. Staff very welcoming and helpful, hotel very clean and tidy. Always having patio areas washed down and rooms cleaned daily. Food lovely and cooked fresh, lots more vegetables this year, lots of variety and great entertainment while we were there. Yaan, Elise, Rebecca, Arron, evelina, were all a great team and made sure we had lots of fun. We have a little girl in a wheelchair and we find this hotel a great one for us as it's very wheelchair accessible. We just make sure we contact the hotel a week before to make sure we can have a ground floor apartment. Thank you very much cortijo blanco and to all that work very hard here for a lovely holiday. We yet again met some very lovely people here! Highly recommended x ( we normally get a private taxi to hotel as sometimes 2 hours on a coach but only 45 mins in a taxi)

Room Tip: Rooms in main block by little swimming pool we have found to be the best!

We had a fab family holiday here, my kids are 10 and 6 they really enjoyed it. This hotel is beautiful as it is only two floors and has a more traditional look to it rather than the big tower block hotels that you see in this region. The atmosphere is fairly relaxed you can join in activities if you wish or just chill out. Plenty of food to choose from if you are not a fussy eater, the kids managed fine would say not much choice for veggies or vegans. The rooms are fairly basic but very clean. All the staff here are friendly and nothing was too much trouble. There is a free bus to Puerto Banus from the hotel although we just walked there along the beach, worth a visit just to see cars, boats etc. We also went to Marbella, Gibralta, Ronda and Tangiers from here - the hotel will even provide you with a lovely packed lunch just go to reception to book it for the following day. There is a water park at Mijas which is good for the kids. So the location for this hotel is excellent if you wish to explore further a field. If we were to return to this part of Spain I wouldn't hesitate in returning to this hotel and would recommend to friends looking for a great value holiday!

Returned 2 days ago. I must admit anyone travelling on a budget will be in for a big suprise at the Cortijo Blanco. First the staff are amazing they will do their upmost to help. We arrived mid afternoon and was given room 150 positioned down the side road more or less a few doors opposite the 2 bars nearby. My first impression was the cleaniness, it outshone the 5 star we stayed at in Turkey last Summer by far, SPOTLESS!!! I must admit though being an extremely light sleeper i did find that this room could be noisy at night from the music at the bars opposite. I asked if there was a posibility to be moved and the hotel done their upmost to do so the following day. The bar staff, were very freindly, and the entertainment team did their upmost to keep the children at the hotel entertained by day and evening. Plus Arron and Elisa were fab at the effort in Aqua gym. The food was rather samey for my liking, and being a veggi i did struggle some evenings...meat and fish eaters , no prob..plenty of choice!!
The walk down to Peurto Banus is a must by day and night, a fab board walk roughly a 40 min leisurly stroll brings you to the marina...defo has the wow factor!! especially for car lovers, its a designer shoppers paradise (window shopping was as much as we done there) and yhahts too.

Room Tip: Ask to be put in a room opposite the tennis courts, we had friends that stayed there and apparently...
