  • August 2013
The hotel has 8 floors, so rather one of the larger houses. Many rooms have connecting doors, this has advantages for families with children. Wi-fi is available throughout the hotel and is free of charge. Not very large but sufficient pool with beautiful garden area. Guest structure was mainly spanish guests, many english and a few german. Average age is the price range, younger guests usually only children of families. read hotel review
  • Service
    4.0

    The service staff the 'lower ranks', whether room cleaning or at the pool, really gives itself trouble a good service to provide. But this unfortunately very from further the hierarchy is rising. The staff at the reception, for example, the obsession with arrogance, a shame! Unfortunately, there were also persistent problem with the glasses in the room: there was either no fresh wine glasses, but champagne glasses, then this also not more, but only still sherry glasses. We are not fussy but a glass of wine, we do not want to create from water glasses to drink. Despite repeated demand it remained always exciting what glasses because now there will be... Incomprehensible.

  • Room
    3.0

    The rooms are very small for a hotel of this category, this applies in particular to the bathroom not too 2. the same time is available, the room service took a lot of effort and you can on a thorough cleanliness set. Of the 4 german tv programs have unfortunately 2 was not working. The air conditioning makes a bit of noise. There is an in-room ethernet port as internet access, but the whole hotel is anyway with wi-fi access provided (however unencrypted, so be careful!)

  • Location
    6.0

    Great location directly on the beach promenade, there is always offered something and the beach is close. You need in the evening no vehicle and can reach everything to foot. Many restaurants will allow change in the evening, and the old town of Marbella is a must. Otherwise the hotel is very well connected, 45 minutes from the airport malaga, bus connections, etc. were no problem. The best rent a car and Cordoba and Granada visit, very good roads!

  • Sport & Leisure
    5.0

    The pool is not very big, and very shallow. But well maintained as long as the hotel is not totally is full, a usual problem. Beach chairs and cushions/towels by pool boys provided, worked very well up on the last two days (see tips). The entertainment was very discreet, but use the tanztraining Salsa, merenge and Bachata, it's fun because the teacher gives itself much trouble ;-)

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    The breakfast buffet is very good, but the restaurant we only used twice, and then disappointed averted. I can only recommend the rich alternative on the beach promenade to use, certainly not more expensive but very much better. The rates in restaurants are higher than in Germany, also outside of the hotels, the you have to plan. For a 3 - course menu can quickly 50 Euro per person are, under 35 is not, not even in simpler restaurants. We felt very comfortable in the evening, half Marbella is on the beach promenade!
