I'm conflicted in writing this review; more so than any previous review. At the outset, I was here for business and that was a mistake; this is not a suitable hotel for business. As a business hotel, I'd rate the place 'terrible'. Why? Because it caters to the holiday crowd who don't need WiFi, make a lot of party noise... More

There's nothing fancy about this place, you could even call it bit dated. On the other hand: the beds and sanitary are excellent, it's cleaned every day, the place is very easy to reach by car, taxi or public transport, is very centrally situated and very calm. If you plan to use it for relaxing and starting point for day... More

Marbella resorts offers a serene and relaxing place. It's a modern but built with the old custom in Sharjah. If you want to experience the old tradition in Sharjah in a modern day, Marbella Resort is a must visit. Great service and the pool is awesome. Great job to the staff. Keep up the good work. 👍👍

We stayed for the first time in sharjah Marbella resort on new years for one week as all other hotels were booked in Dubai. At first look the rooms looked old and so dark, but I guess eventually we got used to it. The staff were great and the resort is set up like little villas you get your own... More

Marbella was built in the early days of oil, and would have once been both grand and gracious. Separate low, white stucco villas with terracotta roman tiled roofs are reminiscent of Portugal or Spain. It is located on the Corniche, but has no direct view of the ocean as its privacy from the public pedestrian way is protected by a... More

The chalets are old and tired, with many floor tiles, items of furniture and electrics broken. The furniture itself would not have looked out of place in the 1950's. Had no TV for the first night as it was broken and nobody came to fix it until I chased two more times the next morning (and they came to fix... More

We stayed less than a week in this resort; it is quite old but still has sufficient means of comfort. What made it even nicer (with the help of the resort's cooperative staff specially Mr. Adriano) is that we stayed in a very quiet corner inside the complex where only a small green barrier stood between us and the lagoon;...
