The Melia in Puerto Banus is a wonderful hotel just 100 meters from the beach and within a five-minute walk of the centre of glamourous Puerto Banus. The great location, restaurants and pools make this a very popular choice for holidaymakers in Marbella.
The hotel has something to suit everyone! Party animals love its proximity to the nightlife in Puerto Banus. Families enjoy the kids’ club, kids’ pool and spacious family rooms. Couples enjoy the adults only Level Rooms and lounge, the adults only pool, sauna and Turkish bath. The breakfast buffet comes highly recommended by all travellers and having five different places to eat, drink and relax in the hotel is a real bonus.
This is a large hotel, with 200 rooms, which all have a terrace with lovely views of the sea, mountains or gardens. There are nine different categories to choose from, from the most basic Melía Room up to the amazing penthouse suite. There are nice family rooms, including ground floor rooms with direct pool access, which the kids love.
We have stayed in the area lots of times but this was definitely the best hotel we have stayed in. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room looking over the pool was very clean and a good size. Well kept and decorated. We had lunch by the pool on a couple of occasions and the food was very good. We booked the Dom Restaurant and it was so good and staff were excellent we returned again. We did not hire a car this visit but this is walking distance to Puerto Banus and local buses.
Where is the Hotel Melia Marbella Banus?
As the name suggests, this hotel is very close to both Marbella and Puerto Banus. It is on the bank of the Rio Verde River, with central Puerto Banus a five-minute stroll away and central Marbella a 25 minute walk away.
There is a lovely wooden bridge to allow you to cross the river and take you over to the remains of a 1st century Roman villa, with stunning mosaic floor, which is open to the public on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10.30 to 13.30. From there you can stroll on for more culture at the Ralli Museum, which houses some amazing Latin American artworks, or simply choose to while away the day at one of the many beach bars.
It is just 100 meters down to the beach, with a great beach bar right in front of the hotel and many, many great restaurants and bars to choose from just a short walk away.
