The Gran Melia is an old hotel nicely revamped in the last years. I had a good class room with nice view on the sea and the room service was very attentive and fast. The breakfast buffet had good products , local and international. Overall, all what you expect from a 5 star hotel

We really feel at home. We can only speak well of this hotel: its location, its facilities, the food ..., but all that would be of little value if it were not backed by an excellent human team. Friendly, helpful, affectionate ... I would like to highlight Monica from the "Red Level" department, a charming girl who did not hesitate to help us with everything we needed to make our stay even more pleasant, thanks Monica. I have no doubt that we will return to this hotel more than once. An unforgettable experience.

We stayed in one of the Two penthouse suites the hotel has to offer and for us the outstanding unobstructed View across the Mediterranean Sea From the extra large terrace was the piece de resistance. The terrace was surrounded by clear glass (giving you the feel of being on a cruise ship) furnished with table,chairs,Sun loungers jacuzzi and private bar. Fortunately for us the weather was clear and even without the binoculars the hotel supplied for us ( on request) the view of the African coast line and Gibraltar were evidently clear. As we stayed over New Years Eve we chose to see it in on our terrace which did not disappoint as the fireworks from Marbella to the left of us and Puerto Banus to the right filled the evening sky. You couldn’t wish for a more perfect spot Magical The suite itself was stylish with out being fussy or clustered with everything you would need including a very comfortable sofa (unusual ) The Bedroom was similar in style with comfortable bed, small closet but ample The bathroom was disappointingly small with a tiny shower not really up to the standard you would expect from a suite of this size, but the rest of the suite with its huge glass windows which opened on to the terrace or balcony overlooking the pool /gardens and med made up for this. Staff in all parts of the hotel were courteous, efficient and friendly as you would expect in a 5* Hotel (but don’t always get). The whole hotel was Exceptionally clean and tidy including the pool area and lovely gardens (with banana trees) We only called in the Red Level Lounge a couple of times other than when we checked in/out to make restaurant reservations so difficult to comment to much on the services they offer, I am sure the quality of service the lounge offers would again have been to a high level. T Bone Grill And Tahhni restaurants are superb and definitely worth a visit or two as is Cappuccino perfectly positioned opposite the beach. The position of the hotel is probably the best in Marbella walking distance to the centre or a short drive to numerous excellent restaurants. The Hotel manager was quick to respond to a small problem that we encountered and did so in a professional courteous manner.

Special thanks to Elena in the reservation department of the hotel, who - during reservation - went above and beyond to make the rooms compatible with our special needs! She was genuinely kind and a true problem-solver!

We wanted to return to this hotel and made a booking at, the official website of the hotel. I am also member of Melia rewards program. If you do a booking on that webpage you will get a voucher of 20,00 € per day (!). You can spend that money for example at the bar. The booking was done in August 2017 and confirmed (!) the same day. The booking was done for the category of Red Level Sea View. On the webpage of the hotel it is written that there are only 4 rooms on the 7th ( !!) floor available for that booked room category ! To give you an example for the price difference today, January 8th, 2018, I had a look on the webpage of the hotel. A room for a stay September, 19-26 th, in 2018 will be charged for a supreme room with seaview (located 1-3 rd floor, 35 sqm) without breakfast with 336,96 €. Redlevel room with seaview ( only located 7th floor, 4 rooms are available) will be charged with 428,12 €. In general there are several different categories and prices available. As higher as the floor of your room with seaview located is as more you need to pay. The difference per day is depending on the season. We arrived January, 2nd, 2018. No porter/doorman was seen! Nobody has taken our luggage. So we parked the car in front of the entrance and handed over the key to the Red Level hostess. And at once we got charged with 52,50 € parking fee (5 days including a discount). Although the manager has written to me in 2017 that each guest , who needs to sign the hotel contract , on arrival will get a copy of it, again we haven't received it. Because of that we are frequent guests we were totally shocked that the Red Level hostess has guided us to a room in the third (!!) floor. After my complaint that this is not what I have booked and shall pay for, she said this is a Supreme sea view room and this is excactly the room category which you have booked. And then she has added: "You have received an upgrade! You have not booked " Red Level. Now you receive the room category "Red Level". Of course this was not the truth! I have done the booking directly at There is only available the category of the room. I got confimed what I have booked and should pay. I have booked Red Level seaview in the 7th floor. All additional positive things can be done from the hotel. Now the hostess has informed us that the upgrade is that the room has 5 sqm more than the room which I have booked and what was confirmed. She was not informed about the different room categories. Then she said that the informations on the webpage of are wrong! She also added that the booked and confirmed room is occupied and not available because it is blocked for the football team of Borussia Dortmund! Then her next argument was that the category "Red Level Supreme sea view is located from the 4th-7th floor. But what she has forgotten was, that we got a room in the 3 rd floor which of course is much cheaper. The price difference is an estimated amount of 100,00 € per day! So I should pay about 500,00 € more for a room category which I have not received! The hostess also said, that it was not her decision to give us that room... The next day we should get a phone call from a manager which we have not received. Of course the hotel knows my mobile (cell) phone number. After that incidence again we have informed the staff that we will not accept this behavior and we do not accept to get overcharged! But none of the management has cared about us. So we went to the police and made a report. It was confirmed that we are totally right! On return another hostess has asked about our satisfaction. We informed her that we are unsatisfied and feel cheated. After that she confirmed that the reason was the football club Borussia Dortmund who have blocked the whole 7th floor for their stay. Now , one day after we have done the report at the police, the director residente offered us 24 hours later a discount of 20% of the room rate. Try to imagine that you get overcharged and from that amount you should get 20% discount. As a result of this I should pay more for a room which I have not received and then to get a so named discount! Maybe I do not understand mathematics. Because with this solution of the resident manager I still make a loss. The correct solution would have been that the bill for the stay should have been corrected down to the room category which was given to us and from that amount a discount of 20%. So within a period from August 2017 to January 2018 I got not informed that my booking confirmation from is not valid any more! That means that the hotel is deviding the guests in VIP and simple other guests without any rights. What we have seen that you cannot rely on a booking confirmation of this hotel group. This hotel is acting with a 2 - class society. Then - late evening of our last day before our check out - we wanted to pay our bill for our stay. It was 11:42 p.m. the hotel tried to overcharge us again. 1. : The room rate was not reduced down to the used room category. 2. : There was no discount in the system. So the resident manager has not kept his own promises and announcement. Thanks god I have send an sms to him and the so named discount was confirmed. Only because of this the receptionist has reduced the room rate after our complaint. 3. : Of course the voucher of 20,00 € per day has not been in the system. 4. : Of course we needed to pay for a room category what we have not received. Now make up your mind. Judge this behavior of the hotel and staff. As a final result: You cannot trust a booking confirmation of this hotel. You cannot trust any announced agreements. You cannot even trust a voucher. Interesting was another statement of a hostess from redlevel: We never guarantee a floor for your room. That means that all offers from the website of the hotel are not valid. Like another hostess said: The informations from the website are wrong! Of course I took pictures from the police report and from the wrong bill. When we checked out at early morning nobody has helped us with our luggage. It is up to you, make your iwn choice.
