Quality and choice of food was disappointing - expected better.
The staff who were serving in the bar area were good - reception staff were offhand.
The only entertainment provided was a pianist in lounge bar area.
The holiday was marred by groups of young Brits who were on 4 x day breaks, hen and stag parties. Their drinking and foul languauge, particularly around the swimmng pool, caused security staff to attend on several occasions.
I would not visit this hotel again.

we only booked a basic room so no pool view but we where overlooking the Sea with a very busy dual carriageway inbetween only noisy if you had the patio doors open ( and there are 2 sets of doors which eliminate all road noise )
The room was a reasonable size, firm beds, ample wardrobe space with safe and mini bar, Excellent bathroom and daily room service exceptionaly clean
The public area's and coridoors are kept spotless as well with cctv watching all coridoors
There is an underpass to access the beach area and this also leads to a very pleasant 15 min stroll to Puerto Banus
We upgraded to half board and the choice at all meal times was exceptional ( cost 11euro's per person daily for the upgrade )
All of the staff where very welcoming and pleasant
check in and check out very easy and at any time anything was requested the response was very prompt
We booked a private transfer to and from the hotel / airport and there helpfullness and promptness was exceptional
All in all for a quiet relaxing week ( and ciggy / tobacco shopping trip ) with shopping for pat in the boutique's a very pleasant stay at a reasonable clean and comfortable friendly hotel
It is part of the H 10 group which does have a set standard throughout Spain and the Canaries and this one delivered all we could ask for

I had a double room for single use, with a balcony. Room and bathroom were very clean. I was given a good sized room. Air conditioning was very effective - a good idea is to ask for an extra room card and keep it full time in a/c so when you return to room it is cool. There is a mini bar in room with drinks at high prices. I normally move some of the drinks provided out and put them on top of fridge and then stock up with my own water etc.
The pool area is lovely and as I am an early bird never had a problem getting myself a bed with an umbrella. Pool is cleaned daily. Pool towels are available for a refundable deposit. A lifeguard is on duty all day. There is a snack bar at pool which is pricey. A cold drink was

There was no outlook from any room that I could detect. We had a two rooms; both had balconies. Neither offered any privacy whatsoever, from the side nor from above or below. Corridors were shabby; evening dining staff were either very nice or very rude.
Certain staff members we quickly learnt to avoid at all costs. However, breakfast was very good! Evening entertainment in the lounge bar was awful. Gave up hope after a couple of nights and spent each evening in the port thereafter.
Sport facilities were non-existent. This was not a 4-star hotel, just a 3 star with thoughts above its station. Thank goodness the weather was good and we are a family who can entertain ourselves.

The pool area was nice enough but pool bar food was poor quality and expensive. The main restaurant was nice with a good choice of food, particularly at breakfast.
The hotel entertainment was very low key but the bar area was nice.
Overall, I found this hotel to be of a lesser standard than other 4 star hotels I have visited - i wouldn't highly recommend it, but i wouldn't rubbish it either.

The staff were friendly and polite with nothing too much trouble.
The food .....oh the food was outstanding, we were really spoilt for choice, morning and night..buffet style witha huge selection catering for all nationalities and tastes with special themed nights.
The restaurant was open from 07.30-11.00 and 19.30-23.00 so was never too crowded.This was high season!
The entertainment was ok with singing and dancing nightly.We dont stay around the hotel for long in the evenings so it was adequate for us There was also a games room with table tennis and pool etc.There was internet access there if you wanted it.Well equipped gym but hey I was on holiday.
I would without any doubt visit this hotel again
Location is pretty good.There is a busy road outside the hotel grounds.you have to use a subway but I must add that the subway is very well lit and maintained.The main centre of Puerto Banus is a 10-15 minute walk away, with its designer name shops,bars and restaurants.We didnt eat out,the hotel food was too good to miss.Look out for the posh yachts and ferrari's.

Breakfast was always a very pleasurable experience although I wouldn't say the same for dinner, much prefered going into the port where we were spoilt for choice.
Drinks and snacks round the pool very expensive but that being said I will still go back with my friends.

I had not been to the costa del sol for a least 12 years and I was eager to see the changes.
The Andalucia Plaza Hotel is all it looks in the brochure it is a very nice 4 star hotel provided you get a room with a veiw overlooking the pool the 1st room they gave us overlooked a car park and a crane, but we asked for a change of room on the next day the staff where helpful and accomodated us and we got I think only a standard room but it was very nice and very clean.
There was a little bit of road noise but it wasnt that noticable.
The hotel restaurant was very good and the food was excellent with plenty to choose from for all tastes.
The entertainment was ressonable and we spent most evenings in the hotel.
The only problem was the hotel sunbeds whrere some people must have been getting up very early to reserve theirs and then you didnt see anybody on them all day and the hotel needs to be alot stricter with there policy with this.

We booked through www.spanishluxuryhotels.co.uk, they told us all about the hotel when we were booking, good company, everything they told us was very accurate.
