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 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.

Hotel Cortijo Blanco
We returned last week from 2 weeks at this super hotel. We only booked 3 days prior to going but were totally satisfied. The entertainment team worked so hard and our little girl of 6 loved joining in the activities and the disco at night thanks to Bobby, Aaron and team .The food was good just a little warm in the dining room without air con. Clean comfortable rooms and friendly staff - the pool was very busy and had to arrive early for a bed but that's the same in lots of hotels - the hotel is very safe for children.More
Another fantastic stay at Cortijo Blanco
Another fantastic stay at the Hotel. Management excellent with nothing too much trouble. Bar,restaurant and hotel maintenance staff fantastic, friendly and efficient. Adrian - life guard also friendly, great with kids. Food was great with changes every day. We would like to give a special mention to Evelyn and her entertainment team especially Aaron who was simply fabulous and a great addition to the team. Evelyn very organised and giving 100%. It was obvious this team really works well together. Kids adored them. Can't thank everyone enough for another great stay! Sarah, Matthew &OliverMore

Not the greatest place
Hotel situated on a busy main road , (for the ladies 2 shops 1 supermarket thats your lot ) main problem for us was the food unappetising very repetitive , found at times the chicken, pork was not cooked properly also evening meal was lucky for it to be hot , long queues to get food , Very busy main pool , up early for sun beds but don't leave them unattended for to long as life guard will give them to someone else , Staff generally ok , Scottish Lady at reception Excellent , Entertainment they try there best i suppose its hard to keep everyone amused , 11 night stay only 3 times outside entertainment came in , The room we had was spacious , was at back of hotel over looking a road , 7-30am and 7-30 pm bins being emptied every day , they change the towels often but in 11 nights bed sheets were not changed , Wifi is free near reception area good luck getting a good signal , you can pay for premium wifi 20 Euro i think it was for a week . Overall Bar - All inclusive can't go wrong Staff - Ok Entertainment - Average Food - Poor needs to be looked at Location - If you like to take a stroll and look at shops in evening , This isn't the place for you Hope this is of some help to anyone thinking of booking a holiday here ( i won't be coming back )More

mostly good points but a few negatives
10 of us stayed at the cortijo in August.Fanastic weather.we paid for a superior room, and I loved it. Really quietly situated at the back of the hotel, overlooking trees and grass,comfy and modern.my Aunt had a normal room.it was equally modern but was over the entertainment, which finishes at 12, and but she was completely happy.I really liked the hotel, it had a nice feel to it, mixing modern amd traditional decor. The hotel was situated perfectly for me. Bus stop 50 metres away.1.23 euro's to puerto banus or marbella.Taxi 8 euro's one way to Pbanus and marbella 16 euro's.You can also get to puerto banus on foot, on a safe costal bath.25 mins each way. The beach is less than 10 mins away on a straight road at the right of the hotel.This did take me 10 days to discover, and I had been taking a longer but pleasant route. The beach is pebbley but has got shingly bits. It has a lovely promanade with about 7 bars/restaurants on and takes about 20 mins to walk from one end to the other. There are two bars on the right of the hotel,never went. A supermarket, a chinese, italian and I think a thsi reastaurant very close by.On the left, virtually 5 footsteps away is buddies bar. We spent many a good time there.Prices varied for drinks but always good value. Enjoyed irish coffee, pizza, wine and superb steaks there.The negatives of this hotel are: I am not a fussy eater, but found the food cold and unappitising. I did not starve and always found something, even if it might be a cheese and tomatoe samdwich.The lemon tart was delish, some soups were great if hot, and freshly cooked prawns were lovely. But you had to search and sometimes micro wave.plus I found the dinning room really squashed, v.hot and very stark white.I thought the majority of staff fine. Some on reception look a bit sullen and don't quite go the extra mile when your asking advice. The scottish woman v.efficient and helpful.Some of the bar staff were great including the bar manager. I'm not a lover of the restaurant staff a bit misearable.my husband hired a mobility scooter with receptions help, if anyone reading this has trouble walking. We all had a great time.But I am the only one that would go back.I loved it.Hope this helpful.More
