4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Good value and very comfortable
Great value for marbella and in good location just minutes from the beach. Supermarket, coffee shop and tapas bar just outside. Room we had was very large with small kitchen, table and chairs and even a kettle and tea etc. Bathroom very nice with bath tub and shower. Nice balcony too. Room was very clean and modern and bed very comfortable. What let it down for us was the staff weren't very friendly, the car park was tiny (we struggled to park our Corsa!) and at breakfast lots of people weren't wearing their mask which I thought was a bit grim. Bfast choice was good and coffee ok.

Great for a short stay
Nice hotel in a great location. A little noisy so ear plugs essential. Have stayed in El Faro before and will stay there again. Perfect for 2 to 3 nights.
