large, impersonal, limited service resort about 9 miles from Marbella.Beach is very rocky and generally unsafe for younger children, Breakfast is cafeteria style and quality. Expensive for what you get.

xThe staff was great, always greeted me by name when I called the front desk; grounds were lovely with Spanish tiles and flowers in bloom. Nice pools especially for the family/children. Couldn't ask for better weather (Oct) while there. Didn't have a rental car, but we managed to use public transportation to visit the town of Marbella.

First came to this resort back in February 2011 with my three year old son and was impressed. Returned with the whole family this time and was not disappointed. Crib and high chair for 11 month old was prepared and in the room. Room requests (high floor and sea view) were met. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment and... More

Spent the last week of Sept in a 2 bedroom unit with hubby and 2 teen girls. The 2nd bedroom had 2 twin beds which the girls loved. We are MCVI owners though not at this resort--it was as nice as I would have expected;certianly a 5 star place. The couch was especially comfortable, unlike some of the other timeshares... More

Great resort. The facilities are great. My one complaint is that Internet access was not free - not even in the lobby - but that's often the case with all Marriotts. Right up near the main highway are a lot of restaurants and a grocery store; we picked up some takeout Chinese food and enjoyed it along with some wine... More

The resort is great! My kids had a great time because the resort had free activities for kids all day! This is also a ton of great golf courses right near the resort.

This was our "home base" for travelling around the region. What a fantastic place. The grounds are immaculate, the service was great, the restaurants around the hotel is excellent. We were travelling to places like Rhonda, Granada, Puerto Banus, Marbella, Mijas, Istan, etc... and this hotel is central to all of them. This has become my favorite European destination thus...

we stayed in a 2-bed apartment (presumably its an empty timeshare for that week?) and as expected everything was immaculate and clean and classy..it was the back end of the season so the pool was clear and cold and maybe one of the restos was shut, but you cannot complain about the location even though the sea views were tantalizingly...

We have been going to this resort since 2001 and whilst it is still undoubtedly a 5* resort, it definitely needs a little more upkeep: - the kitchen cupboards were starting to fall apart - pool towels were old and dirty - 3 out of 10 sunbeds in the "chill out zone" were broken These were small annoyances however, and...

The accommodation is well planned, very spacious, comfortabe and immaculately clean. The facilities are good for all age groups and well maintained and one always feels very secure and safe. The beach beds are expensive considering the high maintenane charges to owners. Its a shame that the Elmed restaurant doesn't reach the same standards as the rest of the complex.
