“Top Draw excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

I have been going to the Marbella Club since the 1960's it just keeps on getting better and better, the only hotel to dine drink and stay in Marbella very good indeed serious 5 star with a grand deluxe feel. The Champagne bar is world class, and even the MC cafe does a superb Lunch or Dinner for the budget conscious

Enjoyed a 1 week stay here in early July - I especially liked the quiet of the garden pool, though this was shattered for 1 day by a large party of children - though this was swiftly dealt with. The gardens are truly beautiful, as is the private pier, and service both in the restaurants and around the pool done with real aplomb. Food was excellent, particularly in the MC Beach. The standard room though, does need a little attention aesthetically

I call Spain the country of love and beauty. Marbella Club is one of the most beautiful boutique hotels I've ever stayed at. I love the beach, food, atmosphere, their rooms and the services. Have I mentioned the smell in the air? There's nice boardwalk which takes from the hotel to all the shops and restaurants around the area.
Great place to have your honeymoon or even if you want to go on your own. The people and the staff are so nice and friendly and you'll never feel alone. I highly recommend this luxuries paradise.

Room Tip: Try the rooms right in front of the beach. The beach view at night is breathtakingly beautiful.

We spent a week at the Marbella Club this October. We came here to relax and rejuvenate and we did just that. The place is just. Beautiful, the flowers and the scents are amazing. The service I found to be impeccable , everyone here couldn't be nicer. The restaurants particularly the MC cafe was fantastic. The word No was never heard, we even had them deliver our favorite pizza from one of the restaurants for dinner on our terrace one night. A true European old fashioned resort at its best!! Loved it!!

We took a 5 day break in July 2013 to recharge the batteries and get some sun.

The food, service and general hotel standard were very good indeed. We stayed in a villa which was beautifully maintained and located close to the main road, but a unfortunately a fair walk from the beach. Alternatively you could call for a golf buggy. The villa itself was of an excellent standard with all home comforts and had it's own pool, I would highly recommend the villas for someone who wants some privacy and R&R. We could also have room service with no tray charge. The choice and quality of food was excellent, we had breakfast most mornings on our own terrace. The service was always prompt and friendly.

The kids club was nothing short of fantastic. The best facilities we have ever seen.

There is also a modern well equipped but small gym. Everything you need for a holiday workout.

The only reason I haven't rated as 5 star is because the general spread out layout of the hotel isn't for everyone, and the beach not being joined to the hotel made it feel less exclusive to me, however all in all a beautiful hotel steeped in history. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Choose carefully depending on your needs, the hotel occupies a large thin plot right from the villas...

We spent a week at the club in September and could barely move out the hotel, it was just fabulous. Old world charm with impeccable service and ambience. My best was meeting on the terrace at 8.30 for a Bellini listening to divine music followed by scrumptious dinner under the trees. The lunch buffet is absolutely out of this world.

What a fabulous hotel. The service was absolutely impeccable and every need and whim is catered for. This is old fashioned hotel service at its best. The rooms are gorgeous, the food is terrific and great thought has been given to every element, from the iPads in the rooms providing information and the fresh complimentary fruit and coffee to the fluffy beach towels and luxurious sunbeds, this really is paradise on earth. One of the best breakfasts I've ever had too.

Room Tip: The little chalets near the main pool are lovely.
