H10 Andalucia Plaza
Travel Blogs from Marbella
On the way we stopped at Mijas for a bit and than drove through the mountains to Marbella. The weather was rather strange, a lot if wind and temperatures of around 25 which is pretty cool for here at this time of year. We walked through the little streets of the old town which was real nice and walked down to the boulevard following the beach for a bit. But as the wind was to fresh we went back up and had some lunch on a little square before ...
... doesn't leave until 5:30pm. Weather still delightful - about 25 degrees. Train trip was very pleasant - 2nd class seats but very comfortable and clean. A great way to see the countryside. Again there were miles and miles of olive trees, and we have had some delicious olive oil in Spain, as you would expect. Needless to say there ...
... and spices (like a Swiss raclette), followed by a hot fish seafood soup. Back to the beach for siesta! At 7:30pm the beach cushions were being gathered up, so we had to move! We sat down for a drink outdoors at our hotel.
I nearly choked on my tea when the customer near me at the little boutique dropped his pants to try on different shorts on sale. This was ...

After a quick shower, Skype sessions with a handful of brothers and other friends, we pushed the couches together and all curled up to watch When a Stranger Calls. About 5 minutes into the movie all 9 of us (minus Peter and Divya) had passed out in a pile on the couches and didn't make our way to our beds until about 5 or 6 am.
I never want to forget this night.
No DVD tonight as it was way past bedtime when we got back. Poor old Rob must have been all worn out with the excitement - he went off to sleep almost immediately!
January 26. Saturday
We had our first cuppa whilst still in bed then breakfast in the awning. By the look of the sky it promises to be a lovely sun-shiny day.
We had a shower each, a tidy up and then tackled a bit of ...

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.
