My wife and I stayed for a week in November. Overall we had a great week and the location of the hotel is great, only a 15 min walk to puerto Banus. We found the hotel to be very quiet ( obviously the time of year) but that also means most of the amenities (beach bars , restaurants etc) are...

Firstly, this relates to a long weekend in November, so probably sheds little light on what to expect in August. Basically, the hotel was built to a very high standard, hence probably deserved its five star rating originally. We selected a junior suite, and this was large and very well furnished with a large balcony, with chairs table and sofa....

Both try to direct you down Av de Lola Flores which is a Pedestrian Avenue. There is another route from the San Pedro exit but there were so many turns that we found it easier to...
