Address: Avenida del Rotary International, Puerto Banús, Marbella, 29660, Spain

Star rating:
3 star hotel

3.6

You're slap-bang in the middle of the famous Puerto Banús at this hotel.

It seems to be the hotel of choice for party people wanting to experience the legendary nightlife of the port. As such, it’s not ideal for families with young children. Staying at this hotel, I was aware of its wear and tear around the edges but, due to its proximity to the harbour’s bars, restaurants, shops and clubs, I hardly spent any time inside my room.

Location

This is its trump card. You are steps away from the mega yachts, beaches and clubs. You’ll find designer boutiques, El Corte Inglés (department store) and high street brands on your doorstep.

Bedrooms

Sleeping up to three people, the studios have a small kitchenette and are of a decent size, but they’re begging to be refurbished. The zig-zag patterned sofas, curtains and bed-spreads are surely 1980s' originals? Don’t accept a ground floor studio if you can help it as they get noisy when the clubs empty, as I found out to my cost.

Public areas

The grounds are well-maintained and the pool area is always spotlessly clean, but like most of the hotel, it seems dated. The pool gets busy as the hotel caters for large groups, including stag and hen parties.

Eating and drinking

Some guests make meals in their studios and shop at the supermarkets opposite the hotel, but I’d recommend you try the restaurants and cafés – you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Leisure facilities

A medium-sized pool, a separate children’s pool, and a flood-lit tennis court.

Service

Some of the hardest-working and friendliest staff I’ve come across.

Who stays there

Golf, stag and hen parties. It’s also a popular hotel with those who’ve just finished exams.

Price advice

Great value for money, considering the location, and you won’t need to spend a fortune on food or taxis either - if you eat in and stay in and around Puerto Banús.
