At first glance, the Globales Cortijo Blanco 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 three main pools, an international buffet restaurant and an open-air entertainment stage.
Globales 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.

Is this Spain's most well-kept secret?
Looking for an autumn sunshine break, our travel agent recommended this hotel. On arrival at the hotel the reception staff could not have been friendlier and were very helpful. Check in was swift and painless. As I am disabled I had emailed the hotel to ask for a suitable room in a quiet area and this is exactly what we got! The hotel itself is very beautiful, built in low rise courtyards, in Spanish/Moorish style. With lovely gardens and bourganvilla growing on the walls and in pots, it is a lovely setting. The room was very spacious with plenty of room for my mobility scooter. Plenty of wardrobe space, plenty of hangers and the suitcases fitted nicely under the beds. The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels left each day. Our maid, Rosa, was lovely and cleaned to a high standard. There was a hairdryer in our large bathroom which is very powerful and a razor charging point. Closer inspection revealed a complementary toiletry bag containing everything you would need, including a razor and a toothbrush! The rooms are in courtyard settings, and ours had a newly installed swimming pool in the middle. The beds were extremely comfortable, and we slept very well each night. The pools were clean, with so many sunbeds that it was hard to decide which ones to have! We would wake up at 9 am and look out of the patio door and joke that we'd better hurry up and get a sunbed as there were only 200 left! lol. There was nightly entertainment, alternating with the animation team (who were brilliant and so, so funny), and outside entertainers, which included soul singers (excellent), acrobats (again brilliant) and the best for me was the Flamenco dancers! For us, this was one of the best hotels we have stayed in for entertainment! There is an indoor and outdoor bar (which is where the stage is for the entertainment), and the bar staff work very hard, but always have a smile and a joke. I am not a big drinker, and their idea of a vodka and lemonade is 5 parts vodka to 1 part lemonade, so I always asked for a little vodka. This was quickly picked up by the bar staff, who always had a joke with me about this! The outdoor bar gets very busy at times, but the staff always cope and serve very quickly. The shared spaces within the hotel were very clean, with staff cleaning them several times daily. The public toilets were cleaned hourly. The cleaning staff work so hard here, and maintain excellent standards. The dining room was spacious, and yes, there were some queues for the food, but you get this in every hotel that serves buffet style food. The staff in the dining room worked very hard, clearing, cleaning and re-setting the tables continually.. ...there is rose, white and red wine, San Miguel larger, and branded soft drinks in dispensers in the dining room, along with tea, coffee and juices to help yourself to. Last, but by no means least, the food....THE FOOD!! What can I say? I have NEVER NEVER had such a wide choice of food in ANY hotel, even 5 star is no better than the food in this little 3 star hotel. IT WAS TO DIE FOR!!! I cannot list the food we ate int he 14 days we were here, but here is a small selection: BREAKFAST - everywhich way eggs, bacon, sausages (real ones), hash browns, beans, bread, toast, juice, continental brekkies, fresh fruit of all descriptions, tomatoes, cereals, hot milk, cold milk, preserves, etc, etc. LUNCH & EVENING MEAL - soups and salads, Steak, lamb, pork, veal, turkey, chicken, roast beef, boars head, potatoes, veggies, gravy, mushroom sauce, a good fish selection each day/night, baby squid, paella, giant prawns, 3 different pastas, sauces, pizzas, chips, burgers, chocolate fountain with marshmellows, cakes, tarts, gateaux, apple cakes, custard, profriteroles, jellies, ice creams, cheeses and crackers....I could go on and on but you get the gist!! All cooked and replenished regularly by excellent chefs! How anyone can criticize the food in this hotel beggars belief! Some reviewers have said that the food was cold, but we didn't experience this, only having hot food with hot plates! But anyway, who wants to eat red hot food in a climate in excess of 28c? All in all, although this hotel is only rated 3 stars, we would rate it 5 STARS. I cannot praise the hotel and staff highly enough. We were so impressed that the day after we got home we rebooked for next year, but for 21 NIGHTS!!! and we really think that this is SPAIN'S BEST KEPT SECRET and can sum it up in one word.... AMAZING!!!More
Poor dinning experience
On arrival check in was quick and reception staff very pleasant, our room in Almeria block was clean and comfortable and staff kept it that way throughout our stay all public areas were also kept at a high standard. Personally I did not think the animation team were very good but that's only my opinion. The thing that really lets this hotel down is the dinning experience, there was a decent choice of food offered but the quality was not the best and unless freshly cooked many items had been left to go cold. The worst thing is the size and layout of the dinning restaurant, it is just not big enough, also the tea, coffee and other drinks machines are right in the doorway where there are always many people standing around. Finally, should a member of the management team reply to this review please explain why at 6 euros per day each for wifi and room safe the price needs to so extortionate.More
Great value for money
The first room we were allocated was overlooking the outdoor stage, so was rather noisy and only had a Juliet balcony. We requested another room but as the hotel was full we were asked to come back in two days. True to their word we were moved to a quieter ground floor room with a terrace. It was ideal, and thanks to reception for organising.(we left them a box of chocolates when we checked out).Very clean hotel, and bar staff always clearing and wiping tables.It was so nice to go to an all-inclusive hotel where the staff actually seemed happy to be working there. The hotel itself is a two-storey Andalucian style hotel. Very colourful and with well kept gardens and plants. Oranges and bananas growing just above your heads. Never had to wait more than a couple of minutes for a drink and the Bodega bar was nice to get away from everyone, quiet and with a pretty outside terrace. It's also the first (of many) AI hotels where we did not feel the need to eat out at all. Also recommend the Catamaran trip from Puerto Banus to Marbella. This is one hotel we will definitely return to.More
Sunshine and Flowers
Cannot really fault this very pretty place. The food is plentiful and there is something for every taste. Food could be more hot but hey, there is a microwave so problem can be righted. What has improved greatly is the animacion with the excellent leadership of the very talented William, supported by the lovely Emily, Maite and the new members. Full of energy. The stage games may not be for everybody but the activities, the great team shows and professional shows were super. Thanks to all the pleasant staff (cheers to the bar and restaurant staff, reception and all the other people involved in keeping Cortijo running efficiently). A special mention to the gardening and maintenance staff.More
Iris from Croydon
We have just returned from a week on 8th October and it was excellent. The room was spacious and spotless and the food was excellent. So many different choices lunch and dinner. The staff were cheerful and helpful. It was bigger that we usually opt for and we were a bit worried about queues at meal times and battling for sun beds but this didn't happen. I don't know about high season though. Our one reservation was that even though there is a courtesy bus to San Pedro and Puerto Benus there was nowhere to walk though as the hotel is very close to the very busy main road.More
