We spent four nights here in March. We have stayed before, and continue to return because it's a great hotel in a smashing location.
As mentioned in other reviews, definitely worth the extra for a sea view room. Lying in bed listening to the waves is lovely.
Good points about the hotel - pleased to see that Wi-Fi is now free, the breakfast buffet as superb as always and the staff are very friendly and efficient. We thought drinks were good value.
Away from the hotel I recommend Bistro Paloma - reviewed elsewhere on Trip Advisor. We also ate at El Capitan which is just behind the hotel. Excellent value and good food.
Further afield we went to Puerto Banus as usual and it's looking very run down, away from all the glitz and glamour round the marina. However, El Corte Ingles' shoe collection much improved in my opinion!
