Beautiful in Banus

4 out of 5
by from Warwickshire, United Kingdom
Posted Sep 12, 2016
Pros: Location, cleanliness, pool area, cocktails
Cons: 100% the entertainment - basic in the evenings finishing by 11pm and totally none existent in the daytime
Location: Close to Puerto Banus marina and nightlife, 45 mins to airport (with no stops), 30 mins to Cala de Mijas
A lovely hotel laid out like a little Spanish village. 3 beautifully clean pools and spacious accommodations which are kept very clean. 5 mins in a taxi (approx €7 in a taxi) or 30 min walk along the beach boardwalk to Puerto Banus Marina and nightlife. To access the boardwalk you just need to take a left out of the gate in between the two pool areas (which is secured via key card access) walk to the end of the road past the Mimosa complex and follow it round to the left, you will then see the Blue Bay Banus beach club bar cut across the property and you will be on the beach front (shale beach so we didn't use it). This was my first visit to Puerto Banus / Marbella and it did not disappoint. The rooms are pretty basic but clean - we upgraded to a superior with a pool view and it was more than worth the upgrade price. The pools are immaculately clean and plenty of sun loungers to soak up the sun - it's like a sun trap. The food again basic but lots to choose from if you are a picky eater (which I am not! haha). We were half board so had both breakfast and dinner was very impressed. Bars at the hotel are reasonable-ish, we paid €3-4 euros for a beer (pint) and anything between €7-9 euros for cocktails / frozen cocktails. The only thing I would really fault or suggests needs review is the entertainment. During the day this was none existent we attempted to participate in aqua aerobics and water polo at the times advertised but the reps just didn't bother!

Rooms are very basic and very dated

However the grounds are well maintained and lovely and green. The grass round the pool isn't such a good Idea although it looks nice it is often wet from pool water or sprinklers and this leads to muddy feet and puddles forming The rooms are very dated and the beds were very uncomfortable but clean and we received fresh towels everyday. Food was plentyful and varied.

Do not stay here.

Rude staff who were unwelcoming, patronising and would not accommodate anything. I was threatened by a male receptionist and we were generally humiliated and made to feel like pieces of dirt on their feet. I will be lodging a formal complaint with Expedia and the hotel. An upsetting experience. We were two female travellers, professional women celebrating our 30th birthdays. Disgusting. I had to call expedia one day into or trip to complain about the fact we felt nervous to continue our stay. There was no element of 'holiday' or pleasure, we felt like a nuisance to them. Every day there was someone different making a complaint or demanding their money back.

Good location, fab facilities, highly recommend

Breakfast was a buffet, huge selection of meats and cheeses, breads, cereals, fresh fruit, cooked breakfast, pastries. Dinner also very good selection and good value. Several pools, good room size, nice scenery. About a 15-20 min walk to main centre along the beach. Easy access via the 79 bus if you don't fancy walking which stops right outside and is less than 2 euros. Entertainment on every night. Only down side was it was quite loud and could hear it each night in the room, but the latest it went on to was 11pm. Staff very accommodating. I would recommend this hotel very highly and would definitely stay here again.

Posted Aug 5, 2016
-charging for wifi in 2016 is ridiculous - no soy milk at breakfast - have to pay for safe - shower gel in room not replenished ( 7 night stay ) - only hotel I've ever stayed in where they don't keep a track of where you're going in your taxi - no beach towels provided at the pools - Given the wrong instructions for the safe in our room - clearly work with multiple different safes - at breakfast a free for all - only seem to ask guests for proof of stay at the hotel after a certain time before then it seems anyone could walk in - no green tea at breakfast yet they do camomile and peppermint which are meant to be drank in the evening - gym not clearly signposted - insecure rooms - ground floor and the lock doesn't work very little privacy couldn't open the window once had to have lamps on constantly as 1 metre outside our window are people laying on their sunbeds and in between us and the beds is a path to walk past our room - no information given on the hotel (except the times of breakfast) - basic rooms need to be refurbished - very very old beds and mattresses - noises from the main road when sitting at the pool - dirty shower curtain -inch gap underneath our door so every noise can be heard from outside the room -no information given on the bus stop outside of hotel very odd considering that the hotel doesn't offer a shuttle service - Luggage area left insecure no one there to chaperone people entering / exiting the room - anyone could walk in and take the lu

Good location, friendly helpful staff

Great location, very clean grounds, pool area and rooms, food was a little basic and repetitive, bed was broken on arrival but changed without fuss straight away but still not comfortable, air con not great but worked ok, can be a little noisy at night with party goers coming back in the early hours, Should perhaps put groups of the younger people in separate rooms away from families as we had them on either side of our room which was a little noisy and annoying at 4 am! the staff were all great and the cleaners did a great job! exchange rates at reception were excellent at 1.23 euros to pounds! Beach 5 minutes walk and Puerto banus port 10 minutes walk! All in all a really good stay and we really enjoyed it and tbh I feel I have left an honest review! Approx 45 minutes from airport and 65 euros each way! Shop next to reception that sold basic items!
