5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

One of the best holidays ever.First class hotel with everything you could ever need.The breakfasts are out of this world and the choice is outstanding. If you can fault this hotel and location in any way then the problem lies with you.

Stayed in Barcelo Marbella for one night. The lobby is calm and relaxing. Room is clean and spacious. My room is overseeing the golf course across the road.
Dinner buffet and breakfast are well prepared although selections are not going to spoil you.

I came here for a short break away from the awful British weather with my girlfriend. I have stayed at Barcelo resorts in the UK and know that they are of high standard. The Barcelo Marbella certainly kept up this tradition.
Firstly the pool area was immense and the poolside facilities were excellent. The staff even brought round ice pops when it got really hot! There was a mix of spanish families and couples with some of course few English - a nice atmosphere.
There is a small shopping area of guadalmina about 10 mins walk away so it's a good idea to make a trip to the supermarket for some essentials.
The main nightspot of Puerto Banus was a 10 Euro taxi drive away, but we didn't mind (put your hand in your pocket, your in Marbella!). The restaurants were lovely and many bars and clubs were very impressive. Had some good nights here.
Want to go back soon and would definitely stay at the Barcelo next time!!!

I should begin by saying that we were looking for a short quiet break in relaxing suroundings. This is a golf hotel and we went in spring, so I am guessing that it may get busier and with a very particular kind of customer later in the year. The hotel is about a mile, maybe two from the beach, so you would need a car to get there, and there is not much in town, so really you need to go into Marbella for food and shopping (c 15 euros in a taxi).

BUT! Our room was large and well appointed with satellite TV, a big bed and great shower. We went half board and the breakfast and dinner was lovely. There is a large swimming pool and area for sun loungers which we had virtually to ourselves. The staff were generally friendly and helpful. So if like us you were looking to spend a few days sitting reading books by the pool in the sun, with a meal and a few drinks at the bar in the evening then this may be ideal.

Stayed here for an overnight stay en-route to the Western Med. It is a good bit away from the bright lights and bars so likely to be quiet which is what we wanted. A bit of a challenge to find it in the dark as it is surrounded by similar buildings as part of a modern apartment complex. Underground car park was fine albeit 15 Euro a day for guests so not the place you would want to leave a car for long. Check in was pleasant and efficient and the room quite palatial in size with good quality fitments. Beds were comfortable with clean linen and the large balcony had a view over the pools and leisure area. Very quiet at this time of year almost to the point of being dull but that will suit many people. Buffet was somewhat unexciting but edible which was a bonus as many hotels provide poor quality breakfasts. Only complaints were the inattentive bar staff who seemed to be sorting bottle in the store room all night and the number of light bulbs that were dark in the building. Not a hazard by any means but it tends to indicate poor maintenance. Worth a short stay I feel but not sure about a full week.

Nice hotel and very good price if you get the huge discounts that Barcelo offers from time to time. The only problem is that you need a car to reach the beach. The omelets and pancakes made on the fly during breakfast are a must!

Just got back from a nice relaxing week at the hotel. The Hotel is located on the outskirts of Marbella, a car is essential as the beach is aprox 30min walk away and Puerto Banus is 15 mins drive or 12 euros by taxi. The area itself is very quiet and is great if you are a golfing fan (which i am not). The spectacular views of the mountains from the hotel are stunning.
Hotel service was very good, any small problems we had where quickly resolved by the management. Evening meals where very quiet which surprised me as there are no local cafe bars to visit unless you drive. The food is generally very good, abit samey but this can be said for most hotels. Overall i would say the hotel is more suited to couples although they where starting to build a childrens outdoor play area. The gym was adequate, and empty! which was good for us. The pools where clean and safe. As normal the hotel design was lovely and up to Barcelo standards (i have stayed at many). PS. If you like red wine the house red was excellent!

Room Tip: for the ultimate break they do have premier club suites on the 4th floor.
