    Location 7.55 /10

    The hotel stands on the beach, a 10 minute walk away from Puerto Banús, the marina where luxury and glamour rub shoulders among sophisticated restaurants and high class fashion shops. When we visited, the centre of Marbella, a city dedicated to luxury, was accessible via a very peaceful residential district but work on the promenade was just being completed, meaning the beach was particularly peaceful, as it was used by the hotel guests only. Several golf courses (over 20) lie close to the hotel, such as the Los Naranjos golf course, located 2 mi away in the district of Nueva Andalucía. Malaga airport is approximately 40 mi away and Gibraltar's is a little under 45 mi away. The Convention Centre and the centre of Marbella, both located 5.5 mi away, are two other local attractions.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The choice in guest rooms is fairly varied, although they all share the same level of luxury, comfort, and discreet decoration. Their style is minimalist Asian, consisting of wenge-wood furniture associated to cream-coloured curtains and wallpaper. 80 % of the rooms have a view of the sea and the pool. Their amenities will help make your stay a pleasant one: two telephones (one in the room and one in the bathroom), a bathrobe, a hair dryer, a radio and CD player, a trouser press, etc. Their style is colonial. Out of the 180 guestrooms, 50 are double rooms (with a surface of 25m²). The rest of the rooms are composed of 13 junior suites (with a fitted kitchen), 40 superior junior suites (with a kitchen and a view of the sea), 19 deluxe junior suites (private terrace, jacuzzi, solarium, view of the sea, kitchen and a surface of 120m²) with, at the top of the hierarchy, about 10 Banús suites and 4 presidential suites (the most sophisticated ones in the hotel).

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The complex was inaugurated in December 2004 and the shopping centre on the ground floor was renovated one year later. It includes a boutique, a golf equipment shop, a hairdresser, and an estate agency for the group the hotel is part of (Aifos). As is the case in every luxury hotel, the Guadalpín Banús has one part of its amenities renovated each year (mattresses, curtains) so that the decor can always remain fashionable. The atmosphere in the common areas is sophisticated, even though some areas are very cosmopolitan and exotic (such as the toilets on the ground floor and the main hall) while others are more classical (the lounges and bars, among others). The V-shaped building is just as elegant outside and inside - sober wooden blinds, mirrors, shiny crystal, and noble stone make up the decor. The common areas, such as the restaurant and hall, are located in the centre of the V, making it easy to find your bearings.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The hotel has 4 restaurants. La Proa is a seafood and fish restaurant open in summer only. The Rincón del Banús, where haute cuisine is served, is open for dinner and in high season only. The Abanda is an à la carte restaurant specialized in rice specialities. Decorated in a classical style, it is open all year round. As for the Lorea, this restaurant serves Basque cuisine where à la carte service is associated to a buffet. The latter stands out by its variety and quality cuisine. Try not to miss out on the dishes prepared on the spur of the moment by the team of qualified chefs. You will have a choice of steak, vegetables, or pasta prepared before your very eyes. Show-cooking is available all year round for all 3 daily meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner. In addition to this exceptional service, the restaurant also presents a colourful and plentiful buffet with a wide choice of salads, pasta, rice, meat, fish, cakes, seasoning, etc. This restaurant even boasts a view of the sea. It is bright and spacious inside, and outside there is an elegant terrace where you can enjoy your meal if the weather permits. The wine cellar of the restaurant specialised in rice is worth mentioning: you will be surprised both by the great number of national and international wines, such as Aalto, Mauro, Viñas del Vero, etc, and the creative design of the cellar, which is visible through a glass partition. The welcoming beach bar is open in summer for refreshments such as sandwiches and pizzas, which is actually ideal if you want to make the most of your days spent at the beach.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    The beach couldn't be any closer to the hotel, which stands directly on the sand. You will be able to get to the sea from your room without having to cross any streets or promenades. The hotel bar on the beach offers its guests drinks and snacks as well as the free use of hammocks and parasols. The towels are also free of charge.

    To know

    Guests of the Guadalpín Banús Hotel can use the spa at the Guadalpín Marbella, located a 10 minute drive away, for a reduced price, as it belongs to the same hotel group. Among the free amenities directly accessible at the Banús hotel you will find a gym (with varied and modern apparatus), a sauna, and wireless internet access throughout the hotel. On some summer nights, nifty little parties are organised around a barbecue, sometimes even to the sound of live music: a real treat, with the sea of Marbella for a backdrop. The hotel's clientele consists mainly of holidaymakers, although it is also fairly common to see groups on a trip offered by the company they work for. The hotel also organizes events such as wedding functions and hen and stag parties. It also has two rooms specially equipped to accommodate guests with reduced mobility, and special advantages reserved for golfers, such as golf formulas that include accommodation and access to the golf course. The hotel has a car park that charges around 13 pounds a day.

      The Lorcrimar is a very neat little hotel with barely 70 guest rooms. Its features include a peaceful environment, good cuisine, and a good location (close to Puerto Banús). It has to be said, however, that it is better suited to those just passing through, particularly business travellers, than those looking for somewhere to spend a holiday.
