            • Group of friends
              8.8

              location, staff and room but dont stay in the rooms at the back of the hotel.

            • Single
              7.8

              Loved the area, nice cafés, restaurants and the citybeach nearby. Everything easy to reach. Spacious room, nice furniture. Free Internet in the room (and it was working very well) a big plus. Very friendly staff.

              Part of the place a bit worn out. Bathroom was not spotless clean (hairs from previous clients), strong smell in the bathroom. The place where breakfast is served is horrible and the breakfast itself, too.

            • Single
              9.2

              The staff were extremely helpful and friendly especially Liwa at reception. The room was spacious clean and comfortable.

              Excellent location, basic but very clean and good value for money

            • Group of friends

              The location, size of room and kitchenette/ fridge facilities, pool area and helpfulness of staff

              Beds next to each others walls! Needs sound proofing

            • Couple
              7.0

              Rooms are not as big as they seem on the website and the parking at the hotel costs 10 euros a day.

            • Single
              7.0

              Location was good for sea front and close to old town. Room was spacious and cleaned daily, good to have use of a fridge, air conditioned. Two of the day staff on reception were very pleasant and helpful. It felt safe for solo traveller.

              This is a basic hotel. Breakfast was poor and wouldn't take much to improve E.G. cheese/cold meats/eggs; coffee and juice from machines awfull! Atmosphere in hotel lacking. Having paid €10 deposit for safe box in room (always a good idea) almost had to argue with night porter/reception staff following morning to get it refunded, which he did reluctantly eventhough I had a receipt...dodgy!

            • Family with children
              5.8

              Walking distance to down town Marbella. That's all there is to it. This hotel is recommended for tourists on a quick stop in Marbella who like a drink in the evening. If not, stay in a larger hotel outside of Marbella.The breakfast is simple, but sufficient and ok. Our room was large so it had two air condition units. Nice bathroom.

              Forget about going to the pool. It is not very appealing... The parking is very tight - not recommended for large cars. The rooms are quite old, but large. The hotel is very expensive compared to the 7 other hotels we have stayed at during our trip. I guess it is only because it is in Marbella (which by the way can be seen in 4 hours and forget about it).

            • Couple
              8.2

              Great value hotel room, had small kitchen area with fridge which was a bonus, great breakfasts, comfy room, good staff

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              The hotel has a great location, just a few meters from the sea and promenade. The rooms are spacious and good equipped kitchen. Staff on reception was quite kind to any our requests.

              The rooms could be better cleaned and and the soundproof of rooms from corridor noise can be improved.

            • Group of friends
              5.8

              Location was excellent - balcony outlook not good and bathroom outlets not good. Looked tired on decor and storage space very awkard and an awful srtificial flower in the room taking up space.

              Breakfast very limited and lifts too few- decor tired in the rooms.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Very central and very friendly and helpful staff.

              Air conditioning did not work well.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              free wifi.

              noisy English neighbours coming from bars at 3 am.

            • Couple
              8.8

              All good. Whilst there isn't striclty a sea view from the El Faro, it is on a side street leading away from the sea, it is very close to the sea and all the main areas such as restaurants, bars, shops, the old town, etc. The staff were helpful, one in particular was very helpful. We cut our stay short by one day and he made the change for us on Booked.net and gave us a refund. The room was comfortable, and spacious with everything you could need. Beds very good for sleeping, little kitchen to make anything if you wanted to, with a fridge importantly. The bathroom was good with a nice strong shower. The room had its own air con too. For the price we got everything we wanted and more when comapred to other hotels in the area. We'd certainly recommend it as a good value place to stay with all the things you need. We were very pleased.

              All good really. The breakfast got a bit boring after 9 days with two choices of cereal, toast, and croissants, plus juices and tea/coffee from a machine. It is however only meant to be contintental and is served from early until 11:00 which is good. I'd like to have had perhaps some sausage, or scrambled egg , or bacon, alternated on each day for example just to add something to the breakfast. The hotel is quite large and in peak times I would imagine that both the breakfast room and the pool are both overflowing. Even in early May all the pool beds were taken up when a Hen party arived for the weekend. The sun only shines on the pool area until mid-afternoon because it is amongst tall buildings but it is ideal to lie by the pool in the monring and then wander down to the seaside in the afternoon. It is beautiful along the seafront and is literally 2 minuters walk from the front door.

            • Couple
              7.4

              Can be a litte noisy in the as there a 3 busy (ish) bars to the front, and a school to the back.
