My Review:

Pool-5 star
Restaurant-5 star

I loved this hotel the best hotel ive ever been too in my life.
Im usally quite fussy in some hotels but this was the best so far
But i warn you if you go on the tiles up on top of the roof overlooking the pool your feet will burn painfully also the beach nearbye i was taken back to the hotel to get my feet cold as soon as possible as i servilely burnt my feet in the sand but that will be a lesson to me not to walk on the sand during the middle of the day.

The evening had to be the best the beach it was quiet in the daytime but loads of people on the beach. But the evening it came to life it was jam packed with beautiful restaurants over looking the mediterranean sea some where even extended on the sand it was unimaginable.

Back to the hotel.
The evening entertainment was the best they spoke lots of languages so we could all join in.

Seriously go to this hotel its great for the family

We Choose This Holiday For A Cheap Holiday Away, It Was MyselF My Partner and my 1year old son, My Sister And Her Partner. We All Had A Great Time.
We Arrive Late, And They Gave Us Rooms At Each Side Of The Compelx, My Sister Was Givin A Pokey Room Without A Window, We Complained First Thing In The Morning And They Were Moved To The Room Next To Us Straight Away Which Was In The New Part. Everyone Was Very Friendly and Always Happy To Help.

It Is On A Main Road But Didnt Really Bother Us In The Slightest, There Was A Supermarket close by (Fab for Nappys And Milk For Baby) And Little Market Shops Next To Hotel.

Ther Isnt Much To Do When The Bar In Hotel Bar Closes By But Didnt Really Effect us As We Had A Young Child. Great Pizza Bar Next Door!!!

Entertainment In The Hotel Was Great, Aand The Nightly Bingo Was A Great Laugh.

Food Was Great.

There Is A Free Bus That Runs rom The Hotel Into Marbella, Which Was Grreat For Sightseeing and The Beach!!

Overall I Would Def Recommend For A Family Holiday Or A Relaxing Break.
We Are Going To Be Returning!!

Stayed October half term. Weather was 70 degrees while we were there although pools cold. One great for kids as no deep end. Last minute flight and hotel booking, not package but all inclusive. Others had paid less but we were restricted on travel dates. Airport transfer 78 Euros each way so get this included if you can. Lots of roadworks taking place on main road but hotel is little oasis of calm nearby. No impact on quality of stay. Hotel was not full in October. Staff generally very friendly especially the 2 Juans on the desk. There was always someone cleaning, sweeping up, hosing down paths etc. All rooms are in 2 or 3 storey blocks in large "courtyards". Plenty of food choice each night but little repetitive after a week. You could eat almost all day up to midnight. Spanish girl running animation activities very enthusiastic. Nightly kids disco followed by bingo and then a turn in the large bodega bar inside. Magician and flamenco dancers very good. Queue at main bar during entertainment could be large. 2 Pay as you go PCs for internet access in lounge with library of books to borrow. Hotel is in amongst lots of established villas. A few bars and restaurants nearby but some had closed for the season. Bakery, good italian, supermarket and Chemist within walking distance alhough not all roads had pavements. Sea front unispiring. Cheap taxi to Puerto Banus where more going on for the young ones and harbour with the posh yachts.

I am aged 21 and went on holiday with my mum 42 and my brother 18. We had a fab time. i was sceptable out of everyon coming here, but we read some reviews and thought we would take the risk. We booked a room for 3 but expected a room to fit 2 and maybe a seperate room, perhaps a livivng room with fold out couch. But it was just 1 room with 3 single beds and 1 bathroom. I wouldnt mind normally but me mother snores like pigs when its asleep, so me and my brother couldnt sleep. But im sure the reception lot could have done something if we'd have asked!! The reception staff were lovely they had a great sense of humour and tried to form a friendship without seeming creepy!!! Lots of international visiters all friendly wanting to talk to you. GREAT Michael Jackson act, think they were from America and England. The food wasnt brill, but hey not a shock to most when you go all enclusive to these prices, but tip for you... Wednesday is the best.. ooooh Carvery!!! Also Chinese restaurant round the corner is brill!! and cheap for quality!! prob would have gone here a lot more if id had known how good! Drinks are 5 euro+ for a vodka and coke round here and get more expensive when you go into local land! San pedro is five mins walk from the traffic lights on roundabout but not a good beach, lots of shops. Peurto Banus is about 5 mins from free bus that runs from the hotel. Never went to Marbella but it was aparently 20 mins away, ask at reception. All in all great atmosphere, brilliant , would want to go back if i could have a seperate room from my mum snooring!!!

This was our first trip to the Cortijo Blanco Hotel booking through Ola Travel.
I was a little wary of Ola as there had been some reviews which had not been favourable.
When I first tried booking with them someone picked up the phone and said they would call me back, they never did. Undeterred, I tried again, and I must say the service was superb. They stayed on the line whilst I checked my easyjet flights, tickets arrived via email when they said they would. Everything went like clockwork.
As for the hotel, this is meant to be a three star. I have stayed in so called four and five star and although the décor may be a little more flamboyant, nothing could come close to this hotel.
It was totally amazing, the children’s entertainers were out of this world, the hotel so clean, food and drink coming at you from every angle.
We met so many people many of whom had been there before and for those that were visiting for the first time; many had said they would be coming again|!
We have been back one week now and have already booked for two further stays next year. YES, IT REALLY IS THAT GOOD.
The pictures on the web site do not do the place justice
Marbella is just 20 mins down the road via bus which cost 1.16 each way (Euro)
A fantastic holiday was had by all

An all Inclusive hotel with adequate amenities :-
Three pools, Upstairs sunbathing area looks over main pool. Quiet secluded pool across from hotel car park and childrens pool next to tennis court.

Tennis court also doubles as a football pitch / basketball court...

Table tennis, Archery, French bowls.

Hotel is mostly two floors with the new section three floors which has two lifts makes it suitable for all age groups, ...
Hotel has two bars one outside in the middle of a courtyard with an outdoor stage where they had evening entertainment
There was another quiet bar " The Bodega bar" which was inside and had a small terrace

Food varied and very well cooked, Always hot. very good choice to suit all.Red and white wine on draught
When the restuarant was closed there was a self service snack bar where you could get something hot or cold

Staff very helpful..

The town of San pedro is a 20 min walk and the beach A 5 min walk
The beach is not great, pebbly

All in all a great hotel if you want to stay there for the duration or a great base for the many golf courses in the area and visitor attractions that the coast has to offer

We took trips to Ronda 10 out of 10 Fantastic day out.
Gibralter was not so impressive 2 out of 10
Mijas another 10 out of 10
Puerto Banus 6 out of 10 leave your credit card at home girls

Outside of the hotel there are only a few bars
and limited shops


All in all fantastic value for money

This hotel is fantastic. We had an amazing time and would definetly go back. I was very suprised at the cheapness of the holiday considering the excellent quality of the food, great booze, fab facilities and beautiful spanish looking hotel.

This is definetly the best hotel i've been to abroad and would recommend it to all ages. However do not do bus transfers with Ola Holidays. It takes 2 and a half hours!!! Next time we will get a local bus as San Pedro is not far from Malaga. The hotel could be noisy at night because the walls in the rooms were very thin so you could literally hear everything. But it didn't affect us as there was so much to do, you didn't want to stay in your room.

We made some great friends and with the mixture of nationalities, it was a great holiday!! I cannot for the life of me understand how anyone could not rate this hotel as excellent!
