“Wonderful week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We stayed at the Marriott Marbella Beach resort for a week . It was perfect - the 2 bedroom apartment was spacious and clean, the grounds were beautifully landscaped, and the resort staff did everything in their power to help us with some issues we had, as well as with excursions and restaurant suggestions. We only ate once at a restaurant there - Charlie's Bar - and, although a bit pricey, the meal was good with large portions. We had a car, and found that the directions that they provided to get to near-by attractions (old town Marbella, Ronda, Gibraltar, Grenada) were clear and exact. The choice of breads and sweet pastries for the mornings was excellent, fershand not too pricey. You can't go wrong at this resort!

Nice facility and excellent staff except young and unexperienced foreign staff @ reception desk and concierge which does not speak spanish .
The resort charges a ridiculous fee for sunbeds @ the beach .These are very basic/cheap sunbeds .

Resort is well located for both relaxing on the Spanish Med or sightseeing southern spain including Malaga, Marbella, Rhonda, Mijas, Granada, and Gibraltar. Highly recommend!

Flamenco show was excellent, food was okay.

Onsite bar/restaurant is good+ food, Staff is GREAT in all respects. Lots of great little restaurants along the beach within walking distance. or cab it to Marbella, estepona, or any of the nearby towns for great food. You sorta can't go wrong in this area!

Make sure to go to the onsite store for fresh baked croissants and baguettes in the a.m.!

We have been owners at Marbella since 1996/7 and have returned several times over the years. Although we have swapped within the timeshare exchange programme we have never found anywhere to match the Marbella resort. It is beautiful and the apartments are superbly equipped. All the staff are polite and friendly. Well done to the management team.

We are back again this year with friends spending a lovely relaxing time in the lap of luxury.

Thank you to Malcolm Platt who convinced us to buy in the first place.

Having friends who are Marriott Marbella owners we are fortunate enough to holiday here every other year and are never disappointed. The apartments are spacious and very well equipped and although you are never made aware of staff such as gardeners or pool attendants the grounds -leading directly on to the sandy beach - are totally immaculate and a joy to walk though. There are a host of daily activities but you are not 'badgered' to join in any of them. With two on-site bar/restaurants and a mini market this always seems to be a perfect place for not doing anything but chill!

Room Tip: If you want sun on your balcony at a specific part of the day - eg, morning/evening, suggest request...
