After reading loads of Trip Advisor reports we decided to opt for this hotel. We were not disappointed in any way. We had a full sea view room in the newer part. The room was large and the bathroom nice and big. Both well cleaned during our stay.The hotel was the first to be built in Marbella and the location in perfect. A very short walk to the old town and you could not get any closer to the sea! You can walk straight onto the front.As the original hotel is so old it has retained some of the traditional features such as brasswork and rich red carpets.The newer part of the hotel ( the hotel has extended vastly over the years) is very spacious in white marble. The two blend together and gave the hotel a warm welcome feeling. All the staff certainly did make us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble.The hotel has a lovely pool and nice gardens and patio areas.Breakfast is great with everything that you expect for breakfast and everything you don't.(Chocolate fountain??)We aslo booked the evening meal which is a buffet.No complaints here and we had a choice of 5 -6 different types of fish that were freashly cooked as we watched. We stayed over Valentine's day and the hotel had put thought and preparation into the meal to make this a more special occasion.I would certainly book again. However we stayed at a nice quite time of year and there was no issue with any noise or sunbeds or quenues at the buffet etc.
