“Solid choice with good views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Highlights of the hotel are the waves crashing on the rocks on the beach and the suite rooms with a living room and kitchen. Downside is the room with a view of other rooms and can't swim in the ocean unless you walk a long way.

To make up for the room without a view plenty of places at the beach, pool, bar, and upstairs "cigar bar" to relax and enjoy the waves.

Beach chairs were quite comfortable. Will need a car or plan to take taxi's if you plan to stay over a few days as not much around. With this said the walks on the beach are nice.

Stayed November 2012, traveled as a couple

We had booked this hotel 10 months ago based on tripadvisor reviews. When we got there, they had no water and had to send us down to one of the bigger resorts. We stayed 2 nights and then were able to come back to Marbella for the rest of our vacation. We were disappointed, but it was nice to compare the bigger resorts to this one. We fell in love with Marbella. We felt so comfortable, and they really went out of their way to make up for sending us to another resort. The beach is beautiful and quiet. The bus stop is accross the street, and we had no problem using it to get to town. They food was great, I had the Lime Soup and Coconut Shrimp. They really treat you like family here.

Room Tip: Try to upgrade to a non-garden level if you can. Some of them looked like they would be pretty dark...

What a great place to stay! We had the best time! Lillian, the Front Desk Concierge, is a complete doll! She is so lovely and helpful. The rooms are very nice and the bed is one of the best I have ever slept in ANYWHERE around the world, including 5 stars hotels!
They serve the best coconut shrimp I have EVER tasted!
This resort gives the feeling of staying in your very own private villa. The entire staff and stay was sublime!
I cannot wait to go back again and again and again!
Thank You, Marabella Suites for making our time in Cabo, AMAZING!

Had a great time here with my boyfriend. We stayed here for 2 nights (3 days), end of October. Stayed had a huge room w/ kitchenette that had amazing ocean and pool views. Wonderful service at this resort. There were only a few other couples staying there during our visit. Still, the place was fully-staffed. Edgar took care of us both nights we were there. Great food (sampled from the dinner and breakfast menus). The hotel had everything: ocean, pool, hot tubs, game tables, a couple bars. Great landscaping. Would definitely visit again. We both loved that it was a short drive to the touristy, Cabo area. But far enough away to avoid all the crowds/noise/cruise ships, etc.

From beginning to end, the friendly staff at this beautiful resort made us welcome and bent over backwards to make our stay fantastic. Lillian, Ruben and Edgar in particular deserve applause for their patience and helpfulness, but everyone was truly awesome. The hotel grounds are gorgeous, the restaurant excellent and I am craving their pool after just one day.Our suite was unexpectedly generous in size with beautiful tilework and the cleaning staff did a great job of cleaning up after us. We will definitely be going back regularly.

Room Tip: Room 22 was an excellent room. We upgraded to it as a partial ocean view from a garden suite on a Li...

If you are looking for a resort that treats you like a number and and makes you wear a wrist band, and you have noise until 10 PM , this is not for you. Just finished another stay here with seven of my friends, all male. went fishing a couple of times and did some other activities. Then lots of fun and relaxing at the pool and beach. Good food and service by all. Look for Lilian, Carla, Carlos, Santo,Edwardo,Pedro and all the rest whose names escape me to TREAT YOU RIGHT. Be generous with the propino, they deserve every peso.

Room Tip: suites 100 and 200 offer the best comfort

Marbella Suites en la playa was 1 of 2 hotels I stayed at on my vacation to Cabo and was hands down the better of the 2. The staff was very welcoming, extremely friendly, patient and accommadating to any request we had. The food was delicious the drinks were excellent, Marbella is an older hotel, it has been in business over 50 years and is a landmark, but our stay and experinence was absolutely wonderful. I will definitely be staying at Marbella suites on my next trip to cabo. Most importantly my vacation was suppose to be filled with R&R, but in all actuality it was R&R, private, quiet, Super relaxing and very friendly. Special thanks to Edgar from the restaurant, he was awsome ang gave us a lot of good tips on local places to check out and tips on places in town. Last but not least, thanks you to Lilian and Reuben, front desk concierge's, they were both very professional and went above & beyond to accommadate our every needs, thank you both! Thank you Marbella suites & stay for making my vacation everything I expected and thank you for making it a memorable one as well. See you soon!

Room Tip: Definately check the website and look at the overall layout of the rooms, utimately when you arrive...
