... with it's cobbled stoned streets, the white buildings glare in the sunshine and orange trees loaded with fruit line the squares . We stopped for a while at a very picturesque square for Tapas and beer and listened to two musicians strumming their guitars. That evening we dined at another square in town watching life go by and noticing that the evenings are starting to get cooler. Hoping it's only the altitude and not ...

Not long after they all come back, we watched this one guy very patiently lay out heaps of pairs of sunnies on all their cases, it took him so long. We wondered if the cops would come back again..it would be pretty devastating to have to chuck all your hard work into the sheet as soon as you had got it set up. (In Madrid we saw the guys with sunnies and they had like slits in the sheet so the sunnies all stayed in place when you ...
... are said to have occurred in 1917, on the 13th day of June, July, September and October - story has it that the little shepherds were kept in the local prison for three days (we are unsure why) so in August the apparition occurred on the 19th. The last apparition was apparently witnessed by 70, 000 people with the Virgin saying a chapel was to be built ... demanding wasn't she. The area was visited by Pope John Paul II three times, with the last in 2000. The cousins died, early ...
... how much would one cost and would it be to live in or to stable something.The local bar is open so we amble across to enquire if there would be food available this evening. John sends me in to find out, along with his best wishes for success. The loud local chatter becomes silence as I approach the bar and I ask the barmaid, without a lot of hope if the rest of our trip has been anything to go by, if she speaks English. Not a chance, clearly. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews H10 Andalucia Plaza Marbella
I stayed at this hotel in August 2004. Bearing in mind that this hotel is 4 star rated, I was a little disappointed with this hotel.
12 of us visited this hotel for 5 days in July 2004 on a stag do!
Fantastic Hotel, only a short walk to the harbour. Went on a hen weekend with 5, 30-40 years old women and had a brilliant time. Lots of work conventions there but most people behaved themselves. But then again we are gobby essex girls who think we are the dogs bollocks. (please see the manchester comments). Had a large room for 3 loads of space.
Great for "spot the footballer"
I stayed at the H10 Andalucia Plaza in Puerto Banus in mid-May 2004. I booked this hotel as part of a pacakge trip from the Belgian tour operator Neckermann. I paid approx. €700 for a week HB including flights and transfers.
Been to this hotel three years running, twice as a couple and third time with an 18 month year old. My advice is to look around before you book, I've seen this hotel in several brouchures at wildly differing prices, don't be fooled if you see this in an upmarket brouchure, most operators feature it. The hotel is in a great location, a 10 min walk from the harbour. The pool is never too crowded but always popular as there are no decent beaches nearby. Food a bit hit and miss, the buffet style means the food is not as fresh as it could be. In common with the rest of marbella you tend to get gangs of gobby essex lads and girls in peak season thinking they're the dogs bollocks and acting the typical brit abroad. Even though the hotel itself makes an effort to accommodate young children I definately felt on the last visit we were in the wrong resort - Alcudia for us this year!!
Excellent Value @ ?725 inc flight for 2wks HB June/July 2003 - Room exactly as described, although small balcony with furniture for breakfast at just ?10 for complete (2pers) in room (included in price in restaurant). Excellent Restaurant with patio service, clean crisp linen and sparkling glasses, 5 or 6 main dish choices with Chef cooking on show every night! Maid service first class. Usual Towels at dawn near pool even though notice says not allowed, we did manage to get good pool positions most days, free pool towels Poolside bar a little over the top on price and inside bar badly designed especially when entertainment on. The only bad/very slow service was from this inside bar. Waitress drink service excellent and a simple ?2 tip will give you all the olives and attention etc you need at 5.00pm with the best Margarita I have ever tasted! Just looking to go back in August 2004 but the price is virtually double? Finally, good restaurants 25m away and a must is Regina and the one beginning with T on the other side? A walk down to the beach and lunch at Tramps was excellent value, a real pleasure to pay the bill...go on give it a try - enjoy!
We were there for 2 weeks in October and found everything lovely. The pool area was beautiful and the service could not have been better. The only negative was that the casino's stakes were too high.
Great Hotel and Atmosphere
We stayed at this hotel for 2weeks in July and found the hotel much better than we expected. The hotel was kept so clean and we thought the maid services were excellent. I did find that there should have been more snacky food available around the pool areas would have not gone amiss and there should have been a stricter policy on people reserving sunbeds. We did also find one or two non-residents using the pool facilities so tigher controls needed. Our room was away from the road so suggest not having a room near to the main road. All in all we really enjoyed our stay and the atmosphere of the hotel. We intend re-booking at this hotel for the future.
We stayed at this hotel, July 2002. We were travelling with two young children and found the hotel facilities great for a family. The hotel is well maintained and staff are friendly. The pool area is very nice and plenty of room for buggies. The restaurant food is quite pleasant. the rooms are spacious and clean. there is a direct link from the hotel via an underground tunnel to get to the beach and the town which is about a 5 min walk to the beach and a 10min walk to the centre of Puerto Banus. It is a high class resort and well worth a visit.
Had a superb holiday at this hotel, would definately return. Food was buffet, but they gave a top class choice. They also had a chef every night cooking your chosen meat or fish on the spot, Delicious!!The staff were very helpful and good with children. Great location although if you are fussy, there is a main road running past the hotel, bit noisy but didn't worry us though. Shopping was close by and the casino next to the hotel was good fun. Always something going on in the hotel at night, and for a decent tip, drinks were a lot cheaper than maybe they should've been. Our children loved it, we had a family room that consisted of a big lounge(the kids had pull out beds in this), bedroom and bathroom. The best part for us was that our kids could swim to their hearts content and that we could relax with service on tap! Nothings ever perfect, but this was very close.
