Great Place

We stayed at the El Faro in September 2016 and can't fault the place for location, size of room and cleanliness. The pool was small but quiet and served it's purpose. A great place for all ages and we would certainly look to go back to Marbella.

The best thing about my stay was...

The weather and local food was exceptional

WEEK BREAK IN MARBELLA.

EL FARO APARTMENT WAS IDEALLY LOCATED IN MARBELLA. A SHORT WALK TO THE TOWN, BEACH AND ORANGE SQUARE. THE APARTMENT WAS DATED, HOWEVER IT WAS PRACTICAL, CLEAN, THE STAFF WERE WONDERFUL. BREAKFAST WAS GOOD ENOUGH. POOL SMALL BUT CLEAN. ACCESS FOR A SUNBED ON THE TERRACE WAS NEVER A PROBLEM. WILL DEFINITELY RETURN THERE SOME DAY. LOCATION WAS IDEAL.

The best thing about my stay was...

THE LOCATION/WEATHER WAS PERFECT.

Gets better and better!

I go to Marbella 2/3 times a year and always stay at this hotel - so past 10 years! The location cannot be beaten, is central to everything! In the past year or so the hotel has had a refurb and many new improvements, which is fantastic! More choice on breakfast, enhanced the bar and pool area, the bedrooms and even installed a covering on their bedroom corridor floors to reduce noise from other guests - brilliant! Have to also mention the staff at this hotel, they are so friendly and accommodating! Great hotel and would highly recommend for people who are looking for a really good value for money 3 star hotel in very central location!

The best thing about my stay was...

Location, facilities, staff!

Good and Bad - Very comfortable though

I arrived for a 5 night stay on the 1st Jan - For the first 2 nights i was in a room on the front of the Hotel - DO NOT STAY IN THESE ROOMS unless you can sleep through the bin lorries coming along at 3am every morning and also lots of mopeds and drunk people walking along. If you have a room at the back of the hotel then i would highly recommend this hotel as a cheap place to stay. The rooms are clean and large and the beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are adequate. The walls are very thin though and you can hear almost everything that is going on in the rooms either side of you. Breakfast consists of toast, rolls, cheese, hams, meats, croissants, pastries, cereals as well as hot beans, sausage, scrambled eggs, bacon. The hotel is located far enough back to not be disturbed by the bar noises but close enough to be in the thick of it with regards to restaurants. I would recommend this hotel but you MUST ask for a rear room!

The best thing about my stay was...

The size and comfort of the bed

Excellent Location!!

We had a lovely stay at the El Faro Inn, the staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. Breakfast was great and was serviced till 11. Rooms were cleaned daily. Location was perfect, very close to beach and old town, and shops and restaurants. The only issue was the sun was blocked at the pool from 4.30 daily, but apart from that could not fault this hotel.

Great 3* hotel in central Marbella

I've been to Marbella many times and have stayed in this hotel on most visits! Cannot beat the location - beach, marina, old town, bar/restuarants, shopping all within 5 ms walk of the hotel. The hotel itself has had many improvements done over the years and is fantastic value for money. Friendly staff, well maintained, nice size rooms with balcony and kitchen and great continental breakfast until 11am each day. Nice seating area out back by pool with full bar service all day now also. Noise can be an issue at times, but no more than you would expect in a central hotel of this kind, but would recommend a room on high floor, end of corridor at back of hotel if you want something quieter. Have stayed there on and off for almost 10 years now and would definately recommend if you're not looking for luxury, but good value and being close to everything. Will of course be back soon am sure!

It's okay, nothing special

We stayed in a studio for self catering, the bedroom and bathroom were a decent size. The 'kitchen' consisted of a sink, a fridge and 2 electric hobs rings that didn't really work. No toaster, kettle or oven. The only reason for booking one of these studios is for to have a fridge. Don't even try to cook on the hob, it couldn't boil water. The corridors were very noisy, people slamming doors and cleaners slamming doors, echos of people talking, shouting in the morning and late at night, also children. There isn't any sound proofing, you can hear bangs through walls etc. The rooms that face onto the street is pretty loud, bins lorries empty bins at around 2am! I'd advise to get a room that faces the pool. The pool area was fine and the terrace looked nice.

The best thing about my stay was...

Sitting at the terrace and one of the bar maids was nice.
