A lush holiday with the girls

Posted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: There was nothing to fault - it was a great relaxing experience
Cons: Nothing
Location: Hotel set in beautiful gardens Marbella a short taxi ride and Porta Banus app €20 taxi ride
We spent 4 nights at Los Monteros and a fabulous time. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite which was amazing for the 3 of us. Breakfast was a gastronomic delight. A day at La Cabane brach club is a must

Good stay.

Posted Jun 29, 2014
Pros: Rooms and breakfast.
Cons: Sun beds prices.
Location: About 4km from Marbella downtown, and 8km from Puerto Banus. Everything is within easy access.
They have very pleasant and helpful staff. Breakfast buffet was included, and it was excellent, wide range of food to choose from and even champagne. The rooms are big, nicely decorated, clean and air conditioning cooling properly, which is not very common in Spain!! The disappointment came when we found out that there is not beach access from the hotel. Its about 400 meters, with free carts transport to the Beach Club, and then realize that you have to pay 20 Euros for a sun bed...

Old school charm and elegance

Posted Jun 29, 2014
Pros: The beautiful decor, elegance, rooms and friendliness of reception and concierge staff.
Cons: Harder mattress for the beds and more attentive waiting staff.
Location: Go to Sylt beach bar and restaurant, about 4kms away. Can also recommend Elviria restaurant, a short cab ride away.
My friend and I had a very relaxing week here. The hotel is a little remote, but perfect for a week away from it all. Our room was upgraded to a duplex suite and was beautiful. Continuous refreshing of towels and very well cleaned. The waiting staff were rather haphazard but the food was excellent and the breakfast buffet had something for everyone, including champagne! The highlight was our daily trip to La Cabane beach club. The buggy ride there and back is welcome and the beach club itself is divine. Fresh fruit skewers delivered to very comfy sunbeds.Our only gripe was that we reserved 2 beds for the last day and the lady had obviously misunderstood where we wanted them. a gesture could have been made to make up for our obvious disapproval. Whilst 20EUR may seem a lot for a lounger, it's worth it for teh fab surroundings. The restaurant here is beautiful and the food excellent. Service is much more attentive here than in main hotel. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to stay near Marbella but not be in the centre. A hire car is a good idea.

Would never recommend or return to los monteros!

Posted Jun 25, 2014
Myself and my partner had booked a 10 day stay at los monteros hotel for our honeymoon. Sadly after having one day of politeness the hotel services and staff started to make us think we had chosen the wrong place to stay for our honeymoon. To start with the hotel prices were very high and everything seemed to be for a extra cost, after spending almost £2000 for our 10 day stay we thought la cabane beach club was part of our stay, as it wasn't made clear that it really wasn't included at all. The prices to use the beach club varied from €40-€140 per person for the day and this didn't included the lunch buffet that was an extra cost of €77pp! The food definetly wasn't up to a 5* standard and nor was anything else for that matter! Our shower smelt of sewage and we had the hotels maids let themselves into our room twice even though the do not disturb sign was on! Once we made a complaint about this we we're treated like terrible by all staff. The hotel wasn't central at all and wouldn't recommend to a person under the age of 25 as your not able to hire a car. as a young couple who do not come across as wealthy I feel we were looked down on by many staff! We had also booked a junior suit but on arrival were told that we could upgrade to that exact suit for an extra cost. We ended up leaving the hotel early and retuning home. Very disappointed as this was supposed to be our honeymoon and I can honestly was that hotel los monteros completely ruin it!

Very nice hotel 10mins Taxi Ride from Puerto Banus

Posted Jun 17, 2014
Pros: The Deep Big Swimming Pool
Cons: Later Check out
Location: You need to get a Taxi everywhere
Very Nice hotel between Puerto Banus and Nikki Beach. Meaning if you want to go anywhere you will have to either drive or get a a taxi. However the hotel has lovely facilities, Spa, Very Deep Swimming Pool (I wish all swimming pools were this big and this deep!) In total if you include La Cabanne the place has 3 swimming pools and via a golf buggy has easy access to the beach. Upon arrival I got upgraded by the very nice hotel staff - my room was a duplex - meaning I had a living room and 2 balconies and a very large bathroom with very comfortable double room. The General crowd of the hotel was fairly mature - no young families when I stayed there (fortunately) - although I'm sure this changes when the Schools break up for holidays. Taxi's to Puerto Banus cost about 15 euros and 10 euros to Nikki Beach. Would happily stay here again - bar and lounge area are in need of an update into the 21st century but I liked this old fashioned charm. Breakfast was very good also - even included unlimited supply of Mumm Champagne! The only downer for me - because it was so busy - I wasn't able to get a late check out - slightly unfortunate when I didn't get home until 7:30am

Mis-leading information, shabby, old hotel

Posted Jun 10, 2014
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
We were in an old, shabby room, air condition broke twice in 4 days and was really noisy. We asked to move and the hotel, which was not full at this point were very reluctant and only offered us an upgrade which was an extra 40 euros a day extra. Hotel was next to a dual carriage way and no where near the sea. The first picture you show on your website is of 'The Cabane' which is a good 10 min walk from the hotel and you have to pay for it. This was very mis-leading. They are obviously modernising the hotel and construction work was still taking place, there was no warning of this when we booked and they were using a Kanga to break up the concrete outside the pool one morning whilst we were having breakfast.

Lovely 4star really - evening meals let it down

Posted Jun 5, 2014
We stayed in the mirador rooms 102,103 & 104 - a bit 80s but clean & functional. The air con made the rooms smell of sewerage my parents complained & were moved to gorgeous rooms over by the spa so ask for a room there if you can. Pool is fab with great poolside service - crisps & olives delivered with every drink! La Cabane is to die for - an awesome beach club experience! And delivered in a golf buggy - children loved that! The restaurant has 2 different names which was confusing - one for lunch & one for dinner - we didn't realise this & the one evening dinner we had was a huge disappointment - supposedly a 2 Michelin star chef - you can get far superior food in the chiringuitos down on the beach! We complained & the bill was heavily reduced - I think they know!!! A real shame though as the setting is wonderful! Breakfast is a delight though!! Champers is a must!! The staff are great - very happy - all Spanish - and created a lovely atmosphere! We will definitely return - get a room by the spa next time & eat out every nite!

Pros: Facilities and staff most of whom have worked at the hotel for a long time
Cons: Improvement works are being undertaken on some rooms so it will be good to see the workmen leave.This is going to happen in next two weeks
Location: Visit "The Cabane" part of the hotel. Plenty of choice for golf although green fees are expensive. Recommend restaurant in the hotel. Cabopina visit.
This hotel is consistently excellent.(we have stayed several times) The rooms are of a good size and the gardens and swimming pool relaxing and very attractive.

Disappointing not what was advertised

Posted May 18, 2014
Pros: Staff were nice
Cons: Rooms, health and fitness facilities, info on what can be done locally and nice restaurants
Location: Not much. Their beach club is very nice.
1st room right by hotel works going on so noisy and terrible outlook from bedroom. Moved to 2nd room and drains were clogged so water went all over bathroom. On website tennis and health complex advertised - was derelict and closed. Very little in the vicinity. They have a lovely beach club about 10 mins walk (or by buggy) but there is a 20 euro charge per person to use it. Drinks and food expensive. Nice spa. Staff very nice and kind. This is not a 5 star hotel, as advertised.
