Pros: Breakfast was very good. Lots to choose from and good quality.
Very pleased with breakfast, room and the level of service. The hotel on the whole was better than expected however it does match other 5 star service you would expect around the world. I would say this hotel is par with Radisson Blu and Crown Plaza Hotels.

Pros: Extra space, breakfast included, good parking, larger than average room for Europe.
Location: Check port Banus on tripadvisor.
The hotel is located near the marina in port Banus, approximately 1.5 KM walk to shops and restaurants. The hotel will work for you if you're looking for a little more room than the average place, we had a living room, large terrace and kitchen in ours. For extended stays in the area I would highly recommend this hotel. Having a car is not a necessity although parking was free and easily accessible. Having said that the vehicle did come in handy as this hotel is about as far as you would want to walk 3KM round trip to the closest restaurants or shops.

Nice Hotel

Posted Dec 3, 2016
Pros: Location was near the beach. The atmosphere was quiet.
Cons: Staff could be more helpful. Rooms should have at least complementary bottled water and a water kettle with free teabags and coffee sachets.
Location: Location of the hotel is very near the beach.
The hotel was a nice hotel to stay in. Close to the beach. Around 15 minutes away from the centre. Only thing was the staff were not very helpful. Initially I e-mailed them to enquire on some things regarding our booking, no reply at all. When we arrived, we asked if we could get some help with regards to getting around and also some places they could suggest to go to, not one of the staff could help. We wanted some advise as it was rainy when we had our holiday. Most of the places we went to around the hotel was leaking. The Corridors had leaks and you would either have a puddle of water or soaking cloth to cross an the floor or buckets to dodge on your way along the corridor considering the hotel still looked new.

Hotel is very tired now

by from Manchester
Posted Nov 5, 2016
Pros: Staff were good, Breakfast was good, thats about it.. Gym is tiny..
Cons: had a security man guarding the towels for the pool, you are only allowed one, they were as old as the hotel prob 30 years. also the sun loungers are all falling to bits, no mattress topper to lie on only the old bed frame, all the bars dig into your back.. not comfortable at all.. Stairs down the the toilets are dangerous, the steps at the top are becoming loose.. wouldnt like a fall down there..
Location: Beach was dirty, full of litter and thousands of cigarette butts.. I think its over for Banus now, its all had its day, the full town is dirty and old
