Across the street from is Parque de la Alameda that has a lot of Salvador Dali sculptures on display. Right through the park is a beach with lots of restaurants and shopping. The whole area is a shopping and dining Mecca. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who want to experience Marbella.

It’s the perfect location, if you want to visit the most touristic attractions.. you will be Soto undead by them. The parking was not easy, we had to go to two different t parking spots. Try not to take the car until you leave because that area is extremely busy (specially summer). The hotel was clean and nice staff.

This is a well located hotel, right next to the old town and 2 minutes' walk from the beach. Lunch in the hotel restaurant was delicious and the service was excellent. The public areas of the hotel are a little tired, and the rooms aren't as nice as the photographs, but my room was clean and comfortable. Overall I was pleased with my stay.

10/10 Exceptional

This 3 star hotel punches above it weight. I had one of the upgraded rooms on 5th Floor, it was light, airy and spacious, with a very large bed and the best air con I’ve ever had.The bathroom was Modern and again spacious. Breakfast was a typical buffet type and although not as varied as some hotels I’ve stayed in covered all bases. Apparently it closes in October to have a rooftop pool fitted and will reopen as a 4 star hotel. Before it does, there are some small things that you forgive a 3 star but not a 4 star. 1.. We all carry so many devices these days that need to be charged and the rooms don’t have enough power points or any USB charging points, that needs rectifying. 2.. The wifi can be a bit flaky, it took my iPad 2 or 3 attempts to connect and when connected it was only registering 2 strength bars. It needs to be much more powerful than it is. 3.. The conservatory area that leads from reception to restaurant is a bit of an eyesore, it’s badly ventilated and smells of stale tobacco, either do away with it completely or revamp it, guests don’t want to smell old ashtrays going into the restaurant. Would I stay their again, yes, be they 3 or 4 star, the staff are exceptionally friendly, particularly the breakfast room staff, the rooms are great and I would be interested to how see the rooftop pool was completed.
