Lovely location by the sea. Boardwalk behind the property was excellent for walks to restaurants. Groceries right across the street. Excellent value for money. I will stay here again.

Stayed here for 3 nights with friends. We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms, kitchen and bathrooms were clean. Reception closes early in the evening so we were able to check in via the evening caretaker. All in all a pleasant stay. I would highly recommend!

Good hide away place on the beach close to Marbella. A good restaurant next to it on the beach. The only negative are the steps to get to your room.

Liked: Room comfort
Overall the stay was fantastic. The furniture in the room is a little dated and the fabric on the sofas looked tired. We had just driven a long way and when we checked in it didn’t feel sparkling clean. A little spray and dust by us and it felt better. Parking is very easy but getting into the hotel car park and exiting can be a little exciting as it’s just off onto a very fast 80kmh zone road. Beach access is extremely easy and close, beware of sea urchins and cool Atlantic fed waters. We didn’t use the pool or restaurant but people looked happy and there are a couple of pool tables there. Wifi was an extra for our stay. I would stay again.
