Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 4.43 /10

    Puerto Banús is around a 15 minute walk away, whilst the Andalucia Casino is just 10 minutes away. Other places of interest you might want to bear in mind include the Los Naranjos, Aloha, and Guadalmina golf courses, and the Real Club de Paddel Marbella (opened in summer 2009), which are located just behind the hotel complex. The hotel stands alongside the 340 motorway (Autopista del Mediterraneo), in a quiet residential area of housing estates and other hotels. There is an empty, fenced-off patch of wasteland full of weeds opposite the hotel itself, so you're all but guaranteed peace and quiet here, apart from the odd car going by perhaps. Of course, this also means that a car is pretty much essential for getting around from here.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The hotel has 72 guest rooms, including 6 triples, 2 singles, 4 doubles and the remainder twins, and whilst two-thirds of the rooms overlook the mountains, the remaining third have a sea view. There were plans to renovate the rooms between 2008 and 2009, so it may be the case that none of the rooms still feature their original decor today. In any case, all of the rooms are very comfortable and bright, with a functional and minimalist style featuring light, pleasant colours. The other differences between these rooms are the plasma screen televisions and wenge-wood furniture in the newer ones. All of them come with a hair dryer and a mini bar, which is undeniably a bonus!

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The Lorcrimar has undergone various renovations since it was built in 2004, one of the latest of which involved extending and renewing the decor in the hotel's very modern and functional restaurant. The small entrance hall, furnished with only a table and a chair, houses two bookshelves holding information for golf enthusiasts and details of excursions available from the hotel. It is also worth mentioning that there is a phone booth and toilets in this area, whilst to the rear of the reception you'll find the cafe that leads through to the restaurant. For the best views to be had, head to the hotel's rooftop terrace: there are plans to open a Café del Mar-style terrace lounge here, where guests can relax with a drink and enjoy the music as they admire the Marbella sunset. The hotel is housed in a 4 storey salmon-orange building surrounded by a small garden with a lawn and a series of palm trees. It's a shame, though, that there are no communal facilities where guests can enjoy any free time they may have, such as a tea room or a television room, for example. There is, of course, the swimming pool, but the area reserved for deckchairs can be rather cramped during high season.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    The Locrimar's only restaurant serves all 3 meals of the day and, whilst breakfast is served as a very comprehensive hot buffet integrating high quality ingredients, lunch and dinner are served à la carte. Indeed, prestigious chef Jean-Christophe Novelli (of the Maison Novelli restaurant in London) advises on the various dishes and recipes created at the Lorcrimar's restaurant.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    The beach is around a 10 minute walk away across the 340 motorway, which has several lanes running in each direction. Fear not, though, as there are bridges you can use to cross it. This is the closest beach to the Lorcrimar and it even has a beach bar. Just like the Marbella beach, you'll find the sand here is dark and, like the water, generally clean. Having said that, most guests prefer to head over to the beaches at Puerto Banús.

    To know

    The hotel boasts a well deserved 3 star rating and is likely to obtain a fourth star once its room service is up and running and other planned improvements, such as the presence of bellboys, have been implemented. You might be interested to know that among the free services provided by the hotel you'll find 2 complimentary Coca-Colas and two complimentary bottles of water in the mini bar in your room every day. Other amenities included in the price of the room, and at no additional charge, include an Internet connection (Wifi areas available as well as cable connections), parking, and pool towels (though a deposit is required for these). The majority of the hotel's clientele is Spanish but you'll also find English and Swedish guests staying here. The Lorcrimar could be considered a stopover hotel, where the average stay is two nights. This being the case, the clientele consists primarily of business travellers, though it's common to find families here during the summer months, thanks to the hotel's strategic location. Having said that, the hotel has no immediate plans to build a children's club or play area. What is on the cards though, is the construction of a gym, since the only leisure facility the hotel currently offers is the swimming pool. Various special occasions are celebrated here throughout the year, such as activities for the ladies on the United Nations Day for Women's Rights and International Peace, and even St. Valentine's dinners.
