I arrived late and was quickely given my room key at the reception. The staff were always courteous and attentive. The hotel is about a 5 minutes walk from the beach and a could see the sea from my balcony. My balcony faced a residential part of the town with lots of clothes on washing lines, etc. The street outside had the bussle of Spanish life which I liked, I stopped at one of the tapas bars which had excellent food at a very reasonable prices and friendly staff. El Faro isn't a top class hotel, but for the price and facilities.... location, pool area, free wire internet, nice spacious clean room with a kitchenette, I would say it was very good.

Rooms would need to be freshened, a little bit old, but still fine though. Swimming pool is clean and nice Staff is welcoming and charming, always ready to help Breakfast not too good (and have to be taken in an inside close room) but not that important, is it? Great thing is the kitchen and balcony (wit sea view), that was perfect with a 2-y old child for having dinner outside while he was sleeping. 10 min walk from casco antiguo, 3 min walk from the beach and sea promenade, from the central park, 5 min walk from a big supermarket, all facilities around, very central.

Parking is a disaster in this area and some assistance with parking would have been a good complement to their service. The breakfast is too standardized and some more choises would have been appreciated. Price is excellent for such a central position.

Nice hotel, friendly staff in a great location. Just a few minutes walk to the beach or old town. Also plenty of bars in the surrounding streets. Smallish hotel, away from the hotel holiday complex's. Stayed for a really cheap rate. Breakfast not great but was included in the price. Recommend to stay if you want somewhere a little quieter in a more traditional area of Marbella.

Reception staff were relly nice, friendly and helpful. And the location of the hotel is great. The only problem is its really noisy. And I don't mean noise from outside the hotel, its from inside. Because all th corridors and floors are marble, every noise is amplified,there was doors slamming, men singing in the shower, I could hear everything! Hotel needs sound proofing somehow, then it would be fine. But for the money paid, it was still a good deal.

The web pictures showing the parc side of the hotel is far from what it looks like in terms of a green space with trees. One overlooks what could be an abandoned ground construction site. But at least the so-called 'parc' side was quieter compared to the street side. The rooms and linen were generally clean. However, the furniture was fairly used and partly damaged; some replacement would not hurt. The kitchenette was functional for making breakfast. However, the room was lacking a small dining table to permit sitting down for breakfast. Reception staff were generally friendly and helpful. The location is excellent and just few steps from the Paseo Maritimo, parcs, close to the old town, groceries, and of course, bar a tapas. Considering the price per overnight, we were satisfied.

This hotel was walking distance to the sea and to the old town. Banks and supermarkets are close by. The room had an efficiency kitchen that was adequate for our purposes. The nearby restaurants and tapas bars were perfect for us.

Upon arrival (Aug, 07), staff was extremely helpful. Hotel decor was nice, clean. air-conditioned room. Hotel was within close proximity of beaches, a small market, restaurants and local bus service. We recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

One problem: the pool was not available at all: it was still "under construction" ! Not very pleasant when the temperature is above 35°C... Furthermore: perfect location, next to the beach and the old towncenter.
