Disappointing hotel where the staff are unfriendly & argumentative. The hotel corridors look like a hospital with little red lights above each door showing the room is occupied, which looks like the "XRay is in Progress". The corridor wall are painted white with no decorative items. The standard room look dated and very basic for 4 Star hotel. Again no decoration on the room walls - just white bare walls ! The breakfast / dining room is totally unimpressive with bare walls and uncomfortable hard seat chairs. On most occasions there was no one in attendance in the morning to show you to your table. The food presentation in the heated enclosures is pathetic and totally impracticable during busy periods. Evening buffet looked very uninviting.

Girls Holiday

After booking this hotel based on previous reviews I had expected more, the location is not bad and is about 10/15 min walk from the main area. We had booked two rooms which were booked together however were on opposite ends of the hotel. One room was ready on check in however the other required an extra bed did not have one in there although this was requested prior to book in and also when we checked in. The hotel staff are pretty unhelpful, the phones in the room had no instructions and so would have to walk to the front desk for any information. There were no english channels on the TV which i find strange has there are alot of tourists from the UK who I would expect stay at this hotel. The floor was dirty and didn't seem to be cleaned. All in all very disappointed in the hotel and would not stay here again and would also think twice about booking a Melia hotel in any other destination if these are the standards set.

Fantastic hotel

From the moment we arrived we were greeted by numerous staff who were more than helpful and friendly. They gave us a luxury room with free access to the VIP room where we received complimentary food and drink. The staff were more than helpful when booking reservation for multiple restaurants. Overall a fantastic hotel which resulted in a fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend this and will definitely be returning.

shame about the unusual weather

I read reviews about surly staff before i booked this hotel. Probably one word to describe some of the less smiley male staff but they were smart, efficient, polite possibly just a little too formal. Yet the the female personnel in all departments gave excellent service, superb customer recognition when passing guests anywhere in the hotel and close attention to customer service. There is an air of formality that comes across from the male staff, almost as if they have been trained to do so to limit any familiarity. This hotel was excellent value for money and well situated for a short stroll into the port. there is a walk way all the way along the beach to Marbella that is great for exercise, running etc; Very good breakfast with everything hot, fresh and tempting. You name it and it was probably there. I didn't see porridge but then again I didn't ask either. a superb selection was also available at dinner but I did think E29.50 was a bit steep for a buffet

Dear Volker. On behalf Melia Marbella Banus team I thank you for taking the time to leave us your rating. We are working hard to refurbish the hotel; there is a new beach access so now it takes about 2 minutes from the hotel to the beach. We are looking forward to see you again at our hotel. Best regards. Guest Experience Department

Ihan ok hotelli suht lähellä rantaa.

Hotellissa on kiva, aika iso sisäpiha. Ostari ja tavaratalo kävelymatkan päässä (n. 600 m). Rantaan n. 200 m. Jos tykkää ottaa aurinkoa, niin hyvä idea on ottaa huone, jossa "oma piha". Meillä oli vuokra-auto, saatiin aina parkkiin tien varteen hotellin eteen. Tosin ei oltu ns. Sesonkiaikaan. Hotellista pääsee helposti pihan kautta rantakävely-/pyörätielle, jota pitkin on helppo mennä Marbellan keskustaan. Henkilökunta oli ystävällistä ja ammattitaitoista. Aamiainen oli ihan jees. Hotelli on tarpeeksi kaukana motarista, ei kuulu juurikaan meteliä sieltä. Sanoisin, että jos ei ole pakonomainen tarve ihan meren ääressä majoittua, niin tämä on ok vaihtoehto.

Séjour très agréable en octobre

Pros: tout
Location: Marbella, Puerto Banus, Gibraltar, Malaga et se laisser vivre!
Bel hôtel, magnifique jardin et piscines, à 2 pas de la plage, magnifiques chambres, avec vue sur jardin et piscines. Personnel très accueillants, buffet petit déjeuner et buffet dîner très varié. Nous avons trouvé de tout au petit déjeuner, même en arrivant en dernières minutes :) La piscine intérieure est un plus. L'hôtel est bien placé, cela permet de marcher, soit vers Puerto Banus, soit vers Marbella. Excellent séjour! Merci:) Le plus, j'ai trouvé une bouteille de champagne et un gâteau dans notre chambre à l 'occasion de mon anniversaire,:)

Huonenumeroa on helppo väärinkäyttää!

Hotelli oli hieno ja kaikki meni check-outiin asti hyvin. Joku oli ilmoittanut meidän huoneen numerolle kaksi lounasta sekä 24 € arvoisen drinkin ja hotelli halusi laskuttaa meitä tietysti siitä :(. Hyvä fiilis vaihtui heti ja jätti pahan maun suuhun. Hotellissa ei tarkisteta mitään, kuka tahansa voi kävellä baariin tai syömään ja heittää keksimänsä huoneen numeron ja laskuttaa muita asiakkaita. En tiedä miten tälläistä voi vielä tapahtua noin hienossa hotellissa?? Toisissa hotelleissa pitää aina esittää huoneen avain tai muu dokumentti kun käyttää hotellin palveluita, mutta tässä ei. Harmittaa todella paljon jos hotelli laskuttaa meitä nyt jonkun toisen lounaasta.
