Historical Traveler Reviews Alanda Hotel Marbella
The NH Hotel is a nice hotel. I consider it a business hotel, altough it has a beach club. Atmosphere is rather unpersonal. Rooms were well equiped, very loungy/modern style. At night we could here some noices coming form our neighbours bathroom. The NH Alanda is located directly on Marbella's golden mile, on the right site in the direction of puerto banus. Puerto Banus is closeby. Breakfast was ok. Swimming pool ok. In the restaurant and breakfast area you can hear the nois of passing cars very wel. I paid €170 per night for a superior room, this included access to the nice thalasso. The day we left i asked whether is was possible to fresh up later in the day as I had a flight home only in the evening. Staff inicated I had to leave the hotel before 12AM unless a paid a daily fee of EUR 45. I paid the 45 euro and could stay in my room until 6 PM, during that afternoon I had to ask 3 times to open my door as the electronic lock did no longer accept my card key. When I left the lady at the reception was unfriendly and didn't thank us for our staying of 4 days. Conclusion very nice business hotel located just in front the marvellous Puente Romano hotel.
They are exactly what they aim to be, a very good business hotel.
My husband and I stayed here for one night only but whenever we are in Marbella we will return here. Even though we are on holiday we like to have things like highspeed internet etc available which you get here.
The service is very good and attentive. Room service arrived in 15 minutes and we asked for a shirt ironed and it took only 7 minutes even though we had said 1-2 hrs is fine which was a bonus.
They do have a spa but we haven't tried it.... yet.
Rooms are small-ish and their lighting system is very bizarre but it is clean, nice and good service. One thing I do not like is the lack of english language TV channels. here is only News which could be complemented by something else for bad weather days.
We have stayed 2 nights in ND Alanda hotel in September, 2004. The hotel is located within 5 minute walking distance from the beach, if you don't feel like to walk, there is a free shuttle that will get you there in no time. It is also about 4km from the center of Marbella or Puerto Banus, which makes it a perfect location to get some tan, as well as shop and dine in Puerto Banus or Marbella in the evening.
The rooms are huge, with new amenities and were extremely clean. Each room contained toothbrush and paste, hairbrush, soaps, shampoos, nail files, sanitary napkins for women and much more. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was exceptionally good. For only EU12 you will get a viraety of meats, fish, made to order omelets and much more. And you get to enjoy it in outside sitting with a gorgeous view of the mountains.
I would definitely come back to ND Alanda any day.
We stayed at the Alanda for a week in the middle of June and on the whole we were very impressed. We booked our stay at the last minute and it only cost us £400 for the week which we thought was great for a 5 star in Marbella having paid double that for a 3 star last year. We had a gorgeous room although admittedly it wasn't huge - but as we spent more time out of it than in, it wasn't a huge problem. The extras were very expensive - however, we were aware of this and we made the choice to spoil ourselves and enjoy some lazy room service. We found the location fine - half way between Marbella and Puerto Banus - although we did use taxis for every outing. We found the staff very helpful (my partner was ill on our final day and they went out of their way to help us). Our only niggle was noise at night. We requested a quiet room and for 6 nights it was perfect however, on the 7th night when the hotel was full and we had neighbours above and to either side of us we had a lot of noise disruption. Our neighbours weren't being particularly noisey however we could hear EVERYTHING - even someone's suitcase being unzipped! I don't know if the hotel lacks decent sound insulation but if we'd had that level of noise throughtout the stay I'm sure my review would be very different. On the whole though, a lovely hotel and a great holiday.
A basic 5*hotel
Large rooms which were light and airy. Allocated a quiet room at the back of the hotel overlooking the pool but many rooms overlooking the busy main road. Additonal charge for the gym of 18 Euros per day per person. Restaurant staff unhelpful and appeared unhappy and unenthusiastic in their work. Need a car if you stay here or a long walk to Marbella and Puerto Banus but there is a bus stop outside.
Quite acceptable if visiting on business but not really an ideal holiday location.
A Soul-Less Shell
Stayed for a week in May 2004. Very characterless despite new trendy decor. A good hotel for business but not a holiday resort hotel. Shops and facilities desribed in the brochure didnt exist ( Shops? 5 Star Resort suggested activity but this was lacking - spa cost extra and bar / food every expensive. Hotel on "Golden Mile" - some rooms overlook this noisy road so its like a hotel on a motorway. Also it means taxi rides to get to anywhere as after walking it several times I can vouch its more than a mile to get anywhere (approx 2 to Marbella). To be fair its a brand new hotel but it was like a ghost-ship.Bar always empty in basement and closed at 11 - not conducive for a holiday stay. Very un-child friendly
Nh alanda, very nice hotel and good value
I have just come back from a one week stay at hotel nh alanda and I am really satisfied with it.
The hotel is new, rooms are big enough and confortable, swimming pool and garden are nice,
staff friendly and helpful.
Price 113€ for a double room, breakfast buffet for two included.
It is located midway between Marbella and Porto Banus, we rented a car, but bus stop is just across the road, as well as the beach.
We had a great time and it will be our hotel if we will come back to marbella once more.
New, no very new
I've stayed in every NH in Marbella area and Alanda is by the far the most luxurious. The hotel is very new so it doesn't have all thoses annoying stains and scratches on the wood work, but does lack a little in character. The rooms are large and are decked out in the traditional NH style (lots of wood, and tasteful contemporary upholstery)
The hotel has a very expensive Spa (but very nice too) and the staff at the hotel were friendly and inviting.
Overall a nice place to stay (if you have car!) in the Marbella area.
Too many additional charges for every service
I stayed in NH Alanda in december 2003 for a long week end, the price was cheap but (always but) there is nothing included and the prices for every service was extremely expensive even services like the indoor pool and gym are charged for in addition to the room rate (in their web page they dont say anything about this) i feel i have been robbed.
Another problem was the services of the hotel, they are not enough for a 5 star hotel, and the size of the rooms was poor,.
Good 4 star but extremely expensive
My wife and I were in Spain for a convention that was held across the street at the Puente Romano. We originally wanted to stay at the Puente Romano, but the hotel was full, and we had to "settle" for the NH Alanda. What a pleasant surprise. We loved the hotel - it was immaculate, the rooms were beautiful, and we truly enjoyed our stay.
The only downfall was that the hotel was very new, only having been open for a month when we arrived, and they hadn't set up all of their travel services, like money conversion. However, they had very friendly staff who were most helpful. We'd recommend the hotel to anyone traveling to that part of the world!

Our hotel, the Arriadh, is just outside of Ronda, in the little town of Arriate. The views are absolutely stunning! On a quiet hillside, overlooking the entire valley and mountain range, sunrise and sunsets are spectacular from here, especially from the third floor terrace. Opening your room doors, you hear the distant sounds you would expect ...

To go to Granada or not….THAT is the question. We BOTH want to see Granada and all it has to offer, but it is 2 hours away and only accessible via bus. Neither of us likes being in a bus for any time, and forced marches are OUT! So, another time here as well. We stayed in Malaga and just LOVED it!!

Lots of love coming your way to everyone in Portugal ...what fun we had Scottish phrases are still buzzing round my head as well as lines from the Murder Mystery. Thanks Max and Marion for sending the photos.. They are great and also thanks to Peter for the copy of the video made from the camera session. Great memories.
