    On booking I knew we only had the choice of a room with a mountain view without a balcony which was not ideal, so before leaving the uk I checked to see the availability of rooms with a sea view for our second day onwards. The first night we stayed in the mountain view room which was awful, we didn't sleep all night - the air conditioning wasn't very good so we slept with the window open - the frogs in the pond by the front entrance were unbelievably noisy and kept us awake all night. Then by around 6am the busy kitchen staff were heard pushing cages containing food stocks. The next morning I asked to move rooms which they obliged and thankfully we were given a fantastic room (although smaller) with a sea view and a balcony. Do not stay at this hotel without a balcony - also be sure to stay on floors 4 - 6 or, as other guests found, you still have no view of the sea only trees etc The only positive remark I can give is if you stay there, be sure to visit the Cappuccino Cafe in front of this restaurant - its where everyone else ends up !! Eating Out - The Old Town, Los Noranjos restaurant was fantastic, try the king prawns in champagne sauce, we ate there 5 times during our stay and the staff are wonderful.

    The first three days spent here, we were taken over by a Business conference. We chose this summer break to relax from work - not to sit by the pool and be bombarded by noisy people dressed in suits making their way to the poolside restaurant which was closed to accommodate them. We were told by staff we were not allowed to use the poolside restaurant or the indoor pool/ jacuzzi's because it had all been booked by the company for their sole use. On leaving the pool area I found it a little annoying making my way back to the hotel foyer as by then they had huddled in front of the entrance which meant we had to push our way back in. Every time we went to reception area there was someone else making a complaint about something, the staff, (bar one, Maria) were rude and seemed to take pleasure in "winding people up" rather than trying to diffuse the situation. There was no entertainment whatsoever, I have never been to a more boring hotel. The most we ever saw in the piano bar was about 5 people. Everyone made a mass exodus in the evenings leaving the hotel bars empty, it is a shame because with the right management they have the facilities to make much more of this hotel. We stayed for 10 nights but tried to change our flights after 7. The lack of entertainment meant we didn't get to meet people and have a chat etc. I would certainly not visit this hotel again.

    Beautiful hotel,nice rooms with seaview.Great staff..Beautiful breakfastbuffet.

    Drinks and food to expensive.Private beach is 156€/pers even at 16.30 p.m.Most of the guests have dinner outside the hotel.Quality of lobster in beachrestaurant was very bad.

    The hotel was fantastic and location was right on the beach, would not hesitate to stay again

  • 8.2

    Great location, friendly staff and nothing was to much trouble, if fact they went out of their way to help you enjoy your stay. Good food (especially breakfast) and choice of resturants, easy, relaxing and secure, the beech and promanade just behind the hotel encouraged you to take an evening stroll and with the full moon reflecting across the water added that little something - we would definitley book again.

    Being a 5 star rated hotel - Could not understand why all the sun beds were not of the same quality - not enough staff around the pool area on certain days - conversations on mobile phones around the pool area should be banned so that others can relax - Faster broadband/internet access required - Gym equipment needs maintanence - The hotel is to small to hold Events in the garden/grounds without it effecting the residents at the hotel, it is a five star hotel and that was what we wanted so our stay should not be compromised in any way.

    nice location a bit pricey. room facilities were fine and good swimming pool. sofa bed usage should not be charged extra for young children.

  • 10.0

    The atmosphere at the hotel is fantastic. It is a very plush hotel hotel without being too formal. Attention to detail is superb and the staff go out of their way to be helpful and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

  • 7.8

    The hotel is in an excellent location, adjacent to the beach and boulevard that means that Marbella town and old town are within easy walking distance. The pool and gardens of the hotel are excellent for chilling out.

    We thought the bar area lacked character.

  • 8.8

    We had a great stay at this hotel. Personell was very friendly, the hostess made us feel we were here only priority. Very professional. Outdoor pool looked even better than in the pictures. Amazing! Also two times per day changing of all the towels is a great service. I loved using the fitness area every day. Also, the food was expensive but actually the best we had in whole Marbella!

    There was no wifi available. Come on! We live in 2010 peoples! I now have a 200 euro bill for using my 3G dataroaming on my mobile. Also, the toilet is way too small. You are litteraly sitting with your knees against the bidet. Furthermore: the shower temperature was constantly shifting. Hot, cold, hot, cold. Very irritating. At last: loundry service prices are outragious: 2 euro for cleaning of socks?!

  • 8.2

    Pool area is really nice and it looks exactly the same as on the photos. Room we had was specious with amazing sea view.

    Expensive prices of food and beverage!

    The service was not up to a 5 star class there are 4 star hotels in the area offering better service and they are cheaper.

  • 9.0

    The staff are very friendly and very helpful. The garden and pool area are very clean and the staff more than heplfulwith sunbeds and parasols. The staff serving drinks were not so easy to contact at times and cold flannels offered around midday would be nice.

    The staff serving drinks were not so easy to contact at times and cold flannels offered around midday would be nice.Also quite a few of the parasols were broken surprising in a hotel of this calibre.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    Good location, spacious rooms, got free champagne as compliment, room was made several times a day

    No own beach, the one closest to the hotel belongs to cafe Cappuccino-a nice one, but 15 eur per sunbed and not many beds in general. Hotel is also quite shabby and needs renovation No oysters in champagne & oyster bar located in the hotel

    Very good

    Wonderful relaxing facility, Cappuchino Restaurant on the beach front was fabulous.

  • 6.6

    Nice hotel, with nice outdoor facilities such as the swimming pool. the only problem is the location which was far from Marbella downtown and Peurto Banus
