My husband and I spent ages choosing our hotel for this trip to Marbella. We prefer to stay in 5* hotels if we can but this was a last minute trip and we wanted to keep the costs reasonable. We were not disappointed with this hotel, in fact it must be very close to being graded a 5*. The staff in particular could not do enough for us, they were faultlessly friendly and helpful and I was particularly impressed with the waiter service system whereby each table has a device which allows you to call the waiter to order food and drinks - and that includes poolside and on the beach as well - a fantastic idea which I hope catches on at other hotels! A total luxury on holiday to have food or drink brought to you at any given time without even moving from your sun lounger! By coincidence, the hotel restaurant; Soleo, had been recommended to us by friends. The location right on the beach could not be better and the food was an excellent standard - we visited some very nice restaurants during our trip but this was probably our favourite. I also used the gym each morning, which was well equipped and in fact I had it to myself entirely. Even though we were there in peak season (mid August) the hotel never seemed busy as there was plenty of space and ample facilities for everyone. We did not once have to fight for a seat or table and always had sufficient space around us so that we never felt over crowded with people. The only disappointment is the one I always have at hotels and that is the buffet breakfast. It doesn???t really work for me although they did offer freshly cooked eggs and omelettes which were very good. I honestly cannot criticise this hotel and in fact my husband and I are already thinking of booking to come back for a long weekend next year. There is the feeling of a great culture amongst the staff and I would suggest it is led by a very good manager who knows how to get the best out of his/her team.

From a service, cleanliness and location perspective, this is one of the best hotels we???ve stayed at. The clientele is mature, older couples, a few families with well behaved children, overall a very relaxing sophisticated atmosphere. We had two double rooms which were good -The bathroom was a good size. We were on the 6th (the top) floor and it was very quiet at night. The beds were very comfortable! The beach area lounge chairs are a bit crowded as the beach is narrow. They have two rows of lounge chairs roped off for hotel guests and then a narrow strip in front for public use. We found the adult pool area to be much more peaceful. If you want a lounge chair by the pool, secure your towels and chair by 10:00 am, otherwise all the spots will be taken. People tend to reserve their chairs and then head to the breakfast. The food at PineTree Club was very good. They also service the pool area from this restaurant. Each lounge chair at the pool and beach is provided a menu and a buzzer - you push a button to request service - and it works fairly well. We liked that our room was serviced by the time we returned around 4:00 each day, we???ve stayed at some resorts where housekeeping is not quite as prompt. Lastly, the location of the hotel cannot be beat. Outside the back entrance is the Marbella boardwalk with all the restaurants, stores, etc available to you. And yet the hotel is set high enough and far back enough from the boardwalk that it is calm and peaceful respite.
