We stayed here for five nights recently to attend a friend's wedding celebrations in Marbella.I cannot fault this property from start to finish. Whilst the accommodation is not luxurious, it is does everything it needs to- we found it to be clean, well located and with helpful and friendly staff. Our flight was delayed by 5 hours on the way out to Spain and I emailed the establishment to advise of this (given that I thought their check in time ceased at midnight)- to which they responded promptly and courteously. When we arrived at the apartments to check in, the receptionist who greeted us was friendly, helpful and efficient. He also advised us of the nearby supermarket (which helpfully was open until 2am) should we want to get some provisions for our room.
We were staying in a studio apartment (as the one bedroom apartments were fully booked). The room was adequate with suitable storage space (given we had quite a lot with us for the wedding as well as other clothes etc). The room contained two single beds which we were not particularly bothered about but appreciate others may always prefer a double bed...you can always push them together! The kitchen facilities also were adequate- not that we intended to do any cooking but was great to have the fridge etc for drinks and also to keep breakfast provisions in. The room was also attended to daily by housekeeping staff which including tidying the apartment up, making beds and changing towels- this was a better service than some supposedly superior hotels can manage. In addition, we were fortunate enough to have a balcony with a seaview which was great.
We also enjoyed the roof top pool area and whilst the pool is quite small- it was quite quiet whilst we were there and perfect for a cooling dip.The rooftop cafe area was also very pleasant and we enjoyed morning coffees there - the staff here were also very polite and service was quick.
The apartments have free wifi but this is restricted to the reception area and not accessible from your room- this did not bother me too much on this type of break. However I may have found it more frustrating on a city break when trying to locate more things.
The location of the apartments is also great with Marbella Old Town only a short walk away which offers endless options of great restaurants and shopping. The apartments are also in close proximity to the beach and I enjoyed a daily morning run along the Paseo which was also lovely.
The check out time is 12pm however there is adequate storage space for bags and also excellent showering facilities with complimentary towels provided- which allows you to make the most of your last day and freshen up prior to travelling.
The only main fault I would say with the apartments was that we found it to be quite noisy at times so perhaps the sound proofing could be better.
