"Great hotel within tropical gardens close to beach"
Our experience didn't get off to a good start. The rooms key cards didn't work, which meant going back to reception.
An additional bed (which had been requested wasn't in the room) another call to reception. When it did arrive, it took another call for the bedding to arrive.
The porter delivered our laggage, he showed us around the room, explained the safe, air-conditioning, WiFi Nexus tablet, I pod etc.
He mentioned the hotel was very busy and suggested we make reservations for dinner, if we wanted to eat at one of the resorts many restaurants. We followed his advice and spoke to the concierge who in turn was to book our selected venues and inform us by leaving a note in room. That didn't happen. Again another trip to reception for an apology and explanation and to be informed they had been too busy!
However, once those issues had been addressed the stay was great.
The hotel grounds are beautiful, well cared for tropical gardens, meandering paths and a bubbling stream running down towards the beach. The pools were clean.
The breakfast offered a massive variety to select from, the quality was very good.
The restaurants cater for many different tastes. We experienced the Del Mar, Sea grill, Thai Gallery, Serafina, Bibo and Rachels (poolside bar) all food was enjoyable.
We played tennis, hiring court and rackets at the resort, the facilities were excellent, if a little expensive. The rackets hired were poor quality, take your own if you like to play.
Staff were pleasent
Stayed in a villa with private pool which was very spacious, very clean and quite comfortable. Balcony areas were very pleasant in the Spanish sun. Concierge staff were very good, restaurant staff were generally OK, but not the quickest service in the main restaurant, service at the main pool was better. Great golf course, but no need to be a golfer to enjoy the venue. Choice of restaurants is very limited, good menus though and a great breakfast buffet. Plenty of restaurants in the local area, does need a car rather than a taxi.
The location of hotel is really nice, in the middle of puerto banus and marbella , near to beach .. İ like rooms so much. big balcony, comfortable, kitchen , bathroom was very nice, but the opposite side, the hotel was so quiet and there was like abandoned, so empty inside , thats the only negative part, except to this point everything was so nice

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights last week to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. We were so pleased with our stay. The room was very comfortable, cleanliness excellent. The reception staff and restaurant staff were so friendly and helpful. Food in restaurant was a buffet style but there was so much choice. There was a chef cooking fresh eggs for breakfast and fresh meat at dinner. The pool area was very clean and there was fish ponds around the area with Koi Carp which was a nice surprise. The hotel is right by the beach and only a 15 minute walk into the Port of Puerto Banus. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay there.
Synonymous with international glamour, Marbella presents both the old and new faces of the Costa del Sol. Its charming Old Town is a warren of whitewashed streets with authentic tapas bars while six kilometres west, glitzy Puerto Banús boasts super yachts, designer outlets and gold-card dining. There are two sandy town beaches with water sports, and nearby championship golf courses. After dark, nightclubs are upscale and often exclusive.
