Hotel Cortijo Blanco  

At first glance, this hotel looks like a traditional Andalucian villa. But dig deeper and you’ll find its pretty courtyards are spotted with pools, sun terraces and an al fresco bar.

A lot is packed into the courtyards and gardens of this hotel, including 3 main pools, an international buffet restaurant and an open-air entertainment stage.

The Hotel Cortijo Blanco has put down roots in a top spot – the beach is a 10-minute walk away and there’s a free shuttle bus to classy Puerto Banus.

Last of the 2014 Sun

Before I launch into my write-up a word of warning, Pick Pockets operate on the Costa Del Sol. We were warned about them on the transfer coach from the airport and they do exist. I had my wallet stolen along with two other men from the same hotel in different locations on the same day. In fact the day we left another man was reporting to the tour representative a theft. They seem to target men because we are not as careful as women with our money just stuffing wallets into our pockets, so be warned, perhaps use a man-bag or back-pack. Don’t let it put you off the Costa Del Sol though, it is very nice. We stayed All Inclusive at the Cortijo Blanco the middle two weeks in October to coincide with the San Pedro festival. The hotel is low rise built around two courtyards. The first houses the main pool, bar, restaurant. The second is built around the tennis court and children’s pool. This is the quieter of the two. I think the rooms in this area are classed as Superior Rooms. The hotel was very well maintained, with excellent choice of food. The staff are obliging and very helpful making for a relaxed stay. The hotel is a bit out on a limb beside the busy A7 coast road, but on the beach side. Access to the other side is provided by a pedestrian footbridge or walking towards San Pedro where the road goes into a tunnel so as not to cut San Pedro into two. The beach and promenade are a 10 to 15 minute walk from the hotel and are nothing special. The beach is “blue flag”, but made up of grey, gritty sand. The hotel is well served with pubic buses, the 78 is a local bus to Marbella, the 79 Marbella to Estepona. Buses to Granada, Ronda etc can be caught from the San Pedro bus station, but it is a 20 to 30 minute walk. If you are going further afield it is best to use excursions. You are not far from Gibraltar so it’s worth a trip there. We did the shopping trip without intended to shop, but it gave us time to explore Gibraltar. The cable car to the top of the Rock to walk around and see the apes was lovely. Another nice trip is to go to the harbour at Pureto Banus and catch the Catamaran to Marbella. The hotel offers a free courtesy bus to Peureto Banus. The best open market to go to is the Saturday market in Pureto Banus. It is big with lots of varied stalls and is very busy. Get off the bus at the Peureto Banus bus stop, go under the A7 and walk up hill away from Puerto Banus, but beware as mentioned earlier Pick Pockets operate here. This was where I had my wallet stolen. We went to the San Pedro Festival a couple of times on the opening night when they had a firework display and on the day of the parade through San Pedro. Both were colourful spectacles especially the parade where for the Spanish women were wearing their Flamenco Style dresses and the men were in their National Costume riding horses. Unfortunately the festival was on the far side of San Pedro which meant a 30 to 40 minute walk or a taxi ride. Additionally the festival did not come alive until late evening with various artists and a funfair. The weather was very kind to us. We had a couple of wet days at the start of the holiday but when we left the temperature had crept up to 36C, which for late October was marvellous.More

Great Half Term Break

My wife and teenage daughter visited this hotel during the october school holidays and have to say we came back well impressed with our holiday. Hotel clean and staff really friendly we had a lovely ground floor room with a lovely garden in front of our veranda. Gardens are well kept and make the place feel like a small town with plenty of various places to enjoy the sushine or one of the pools or if feeling like some exercise a game of tennis. Food was good with a great choice and we never starved the restaurant was clean and bright and the snacks were served in the snack restaurant which was seperate to the main eating area but had all the facilites you needed to eat a burger or have a toasted sandwich. Sitting during the day or night time outside at the pool bar and stage area there was always some entertainment going in even I ended up on stage 1 night . To finish we had a great time in a lovely hotel in a great location if you dont mind walking to nearby towns however buses to marbella were good just outside the hotel.More

great little 3*

This was our second visit to the hotel. Our last visit was 20 years ago this was our first all inclusive not much has changed from what we remembered. Stayed for a week 19th October weather was really good some nights where chilly but nothing major... The hotel sits on a very busy main road but once your in the grounds you don't here traffic noise. reception was quick and easy check-in with polite staff, you are given a map of where rooms are, which was easy to follow, our room was at the back by tennis courts very quiet spot. room was ok the only downfall was the bed it was ROCK HARD!!!! didn't sleep well the pillows was the same there was a little cushion that was put on bed for show I used that. Maid came in every day and made beds and was given clean towels. By the tennis courts was a small kids pool with sun loungers. There is another pool a larger one with plenty of sun loungers and there is a roof terrace as well for sunbathing. Pool was freezing took some attempts to get in but once in it was fine. There is another pool located at front of hotel in the annex but never went and used it so cant comment on that one. The restaurant: The food was very good a lot of choice you helped yourself to wine, beer, and soft drinks. breakfast a good old fry up and cold meats. There was plenty of salad, bread, chicken, pork, lamb,choice of fish. In past reviews it has been said food was not that warm, we did experience this (not all the time) but there is a microwave. Never experienced queues in restaurant and bars. Bars where quick on service but all drinks are served in plastic cups. As this was nearing the end of season for this hotel it may be different at any other times of the year.(it closes at the end of October till march). There are a few bars by hotel we did have a drink in them a couple of times. we did walk into Puerto banus but there is courtesy bus, we walked along the beach, take it from us it does not take 40 mins ITS AN HOUR!!!!!. Don pedro is about 20 mins walk lots of bars and restaurants. Went on a trip to Gibraltar that was worth a visitMore

Lovely Hotel

We spent a week at the Cortijo Blanco Hotel from 24th October to 31st October. The transfer from the Airport was very long as there were a lot of drop offs so bear this in mind when you book your holiday, took almost 2 hours. Our flight was at 6 am from Glagsow and it must have been around 1pm before we got to the Hotel. Never the less we were pleasantly surprised at the standard of the hotel, very clean with beautifully maintained gardens. Food was very good with a large selection, you won't go hungry. We did request a quite room when making our booking but were put in a room in direct view of the stage which is outside, where the entertainment took place every evening with extremely loud music until 11.45pm every night. When we were in our room with the doors shut it did not make any difference. If, like my family you do not want to be part of the entertainment, I would suggest you ask for a room which overlooks the tennis court. Due to the location of the hotel I think one week is sufficient as there is no where to go on an evening.More
