“Not the Greatest”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2003

We were there for Christmas 2000. It was hard to find any staff that spoke english. Free snacks during happy hour included boiled pigs feet!
Mostly only the staff ate these. The hotel let creepy old German people go naked in the pool and there was a big oil slick on the water surface - not kept clean. That sucked because this place is NOT on the beach at all. Our suite was quite large with a fridge and stove, but it also had a broken screen door off the bedroom which resulted in unwanted roomates including a spider as big as my hand, frogs and geckos - we slept with the lights on. My husband got drunk and accidentally pulled the towel rack off the bathroom wall when he fell down. It made a big hole in the stucko wall - it was fixed when we came back from shopping and no one said a thing to us about it. We had an open air shower in our suite - not very private and full of bugs. Not much hot water. I don't care how many stars your travel agent tells you this place is, it's only a little bit better than sleeping on the street. Wouldn't stay here again - go all Inclusive!

A group of us stayed at the Suites Marbella in the Spring of 1998 for a one week spring break. We really enjoyed the two bedroom suite, which included a kitchen and living room area. The courtyard was great with lush vegetation and a great pool, all hidden away from the street. There was a true authentic mexican feeling about the place. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Overall, a great experience at very reasonable rates.

We have stayed at the Marbella 2 previous times and we would go back in a moment. We even looked at purchasing one of the condos for sale. If you like a clean quaint truly Mexican hotel this is for you. If you loe Big American hotels this isn't for you. It is close to everything and is gorgeous. The beach is accross the street and a 5 minute walk through the lobby of the Fiesta which we walked ever morning. Go next door to a food supermarket like safeway or albertson's and pick up anything. Jump on a bus for 3 pesos.33 cents us and head downtown for sight seeing. This is one of the most beuatiful and frinedly hotels I have ever been in and I have stayed at the Marriott in Aruba etc and I like this better as I like to enjoy the culture of the country I am visiting.
