Been visiting the Pueblo for almost 25 years, it is a lovely place with many fantastic restaurants, bars, and places of interest, and the views from the top gallery are awesome. Well worth a visit.<br />

It is a lot larger than we thought from the Pueblo in the mountains down to the coastal area, and although the hotel is slightly isolated it has excellent local transport links with having bus stops right outside and the buses are very regular and very reasonably priced. We enjoyed the whole area travelling on the local transport along from Fuengirola to Marbella then onto Pueurto Banus which was easy with the bus links. The bars etc in the area all seemed nice.
