Lovely hotel close to beach
Posted Sep 13, 2016
Hotel has very smart lobby areas with few lounges and short walk outside hotel to buffet breakfast area, lovely grounds , few pools , gym , indoor pool and I think 3 areas outside to eat/drink. Pool staff monitor the loungers reserved but not used and take towels away so always plenty loungers available , you can hire one of the Bali beds. Hotel is right on long promenade so lovely walk into Marbella and little further to old town , beach is opposite. Hotel is in mainly residential area lots of apartments , shops and cafes along promenade. Our room was junior suite red level on floor 6, sea views from higher floors probably garden view from lower floor. Red level provided us with private lounge on first floor with patio area, cold buffet with drinks all day , entertainment also , the lounge closed at 9 pm but this made holiday as we thought all lounge areas in main hotel empty most evenings. Would recommend hotel ...but was long walk for us into Marbella and not much to see there, some hotels much nearer the Old Town which would be good for walking to for evening meal etc. Puerto Banus was taxi ride away we loved it there very classy lots of huge yatchs and exclusive shops .
