Lovely Hotel

Great value for money! Close to beach, 10-15 min walk to Puerto banus which is not too bad. Worth upgrading to half board for the price although food is average and not much choice (it only cost us the price of a meal out to upgrade to half board for a week)

Only book if you want the basics

How this hotel has passed for a 4* is beyond me! The sight of a massively drunk girl throwing up outside the hotel reception upon arrival was NOT a good start to our trip! Especially as said vomit was still there the next day, along with a random pair of shoes and leftover g&t's in the plantpots! The reception staff were friendly upon arrival but once we got to our room, we wanted to about turn and walk back out. The fact that is was 11pm was the only reason we didn't. The stairwell to our room looked like an old concrete block of flats and we felt we were off to a prison cell for the night. The air con didn't work and the paltry excuse for a ceiling room fan just wafted stale air around. My husband open the window for some air only to be greated by the sight of the motorway outside our window! Our friends in the other room had to be asked to move as they had cockroaches & ants all over their room. This was done straight away but nobody bothered to come and check the rooms. At 3am we couldn't take the heat and awful room any longer so our friends called up Sisu hotel to see if they had any reservations. Both nights (well, 3am onwards# we were woken up by the drunk/drugged up groups of boys/girls in the apartments near ours shouting and swearing and telling their friend to 'climb down' and not jump! I called security but I don't think anyone came? After about 40mins the noise died down, only to start up again about 6am. We checked out Sunday morning #very bleary eyed and with still 2 days of our trip left#and had to pay to stay somewhere else #which was worth every penny!# Don't get me wrong, I used to go on drunken holidays with my friends so not judging them, and I appreciate their behaviour isn't the fault of the hotel but when this is put across as a 4* hotel you don't expect this. I just felt sorry for the people who had young children on holiday with them. In summary, if you are under 30 and want to get smashed and not care about where you are staying, then book in here. Otherwise, spend abit more and actually get a bed with clean sheets!

family group holiday july 2013

we all had a great time at the bluebay, it was a unique experience , we found the rooms very clean and spacious and the food in resterauntgood but basic enough. Cleaning staff efficent ,every day, and friendly,more than can be said for some of the bar staff.The big plus for the hotel are the grounds which are quite splendid and very well kept.

Hotelli täynnä ruotsalaisia ja britti teinejä.

En suosittele hotellia kenellekään. Hotellissa olisi ehkä potentiaalia remontin jälkeen, mutta hotelli on täynnä britti- ja ruotsalaisia teinejä. Kaikki paikat poolilla on varattu pyyhkeillä jo klo 8 mutta jengi valuu paikalle puolen päivän jälkeen. Ruoka oli lähes syömäkelvotonta haaleaa moskaa. Emme käyneet syömässä hotellilla kuin kahtena iltana vaikka dinneri kuului puolihoitopakettin (hotellia ei siis saanut ilman sitä). Hotellin henkilökunta oli tylyjä ja asiakaspalvelu oli heistä selvästi kauheaa. Jouduimme vaihtamaan huonetta ruotsalaisten seinänaapureidemme juhlinnan takia kesken viikon. Wifi:stä joutui maksamaan 30€ viikko nopeammalla nopeudella, mikä on nykymaailmassa käsittämätöntä.

Huoneet ihan ok! Ehkä vähän epäselvät opasteet palveluista ja huoneitten sijainnista!

Ikke så bra

Maten var bra, men mange av de ansatte var ikke særlige gjestfrie. Hygienen av de ansatte i marskalk var ikke bra , tok inn oppvask og kom igjen med nytt bestikk ol med hendene oppi kopper osv. Renholdet var heller ikke veldig bra.
