“Great holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

We stayed 4 nights as a large group and had 6 apartments between us. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Pool area was kept very clean and was quiet - plenty of sunbeds for us all to be together and no noise as mentioned in other reviews. Food at the pool bar was great and reception were extremely helpful by booking us taxis, etc. thank you for a great stay!

First impressions of resort were good. Well maintained buildings and grounds. Staff very friendly on arrival! Our apartment was beautiful and huge! Absolutely spotless. Pool area was lovely. Nice and quiet throughout the day. Plenty sun loungers. Relaxed atmosphere. There is a supermarket nearby that u can buy anything you might need. Puerto banus marina is around a 15 min walk away. We got a taxi there and back at night as the pathway isn't particularly well lit and is next to a busy road. There's plenty to do down at the marina in the evenings but we enjoyed our relaxed days at the poolside! Food is decent from the pool snack bar too. We would definitely return here!

Apartments are really clean and decorated nicely with fully equipped kitchen. Couldn’t seem to work air con and the walls of the apartment are literally like paper, I could hear every move from the people above us and they woke us up when they came in from partying at 4am. Beds are quite uncomfortable also. There seemed to be a lot of hen/stag doo’s at Vasari Resort which were quite noisy, some people might not be bothered by this but we had a 9 month old baby with us.
The reception staff were really lovely they rang us taxis whenever we required and were happy to help us with anything.
I would definitely recommend this resort but not with a young baby. I will certainly be back with my friends.

Room Tip: Room 2 - its on the end and quite private to the rest of the rooms.

I have been visiting this resort on and off for the past eight years and have seen the resort go from a quiet, relaxing family resort to a resort over run by groups of stag and hen party's. On our latest stay it was near impossible to relax with absolutely disgusting behaviour and loud foul language being used around the resort especially around the pool area. The noise was also carried on into the early morning's as the groups returned to the resort from their nights out. I also noticed that the cleanliness standards of the apartments was not as good as previous years that I have stayed at the resort and bed sheets had not been changed for the duration of our nine night stay. Unfortunately due to the decline of this resort I will not be returning. Such a shame that a former quiet, relaxing resort should fall to this standard.

Dear Guest,

We feel very sad to read your comment about your stay. It is a pity that you could not relax due to the stag and hen party´s. We have given your comment to the managment department in order to improve in this matter. Regarding the cleaning I am afraid if you noticed a decline but we would be very grateful if you informed at the reception something about it during your stay in order to find a solution. Regarding the sheets we got this information at your last day and unfortunately we could not do too much on this behalf because you were leaving on the following day. We offered the woman who came to reception sheets and towels but she refused. She said it was ok.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.
We would be happy to see you again maybe in the near future.

Best regards to you and your family,

We stayed here for 3nts as a group of 8 girls and were all really impressed.

The apartments are huge - 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large living area, fully stocked kitchen with dishwasher, utility room with washing machine, plus a giant balcony .. really lovely!

Pool area was beautiful and also very quiet (end of April though) with a reasonably priced pool bar. Pool towels available for a 10 euro deposit and free wi-fi throughout.

Location is good with shops at the bottom of the hill and the beach/harbour about a 20 minute stroll away - 5 euros in a taxi at night.

Having been to Marbella twice before, I would definitely choose to stay here again! It was also great value for money so book early to get a bargain. Only teeny tiny gripe ... there are no mirrors in the bedroom ... bit of a pain for trying to get ready for a night out! Other than that, I highly recommend for couples or groups.

I stayed at the Vasari Resort with 10 girls on a hen do.
We are older hens so more tame than others and we had a lovely 3 night stay here. I stayed in a 2 bed apartment with the balcony on the swimming pools doorstep. We were very impressed with the apartment. It was really spacious and had all the facilities you could possibly need.
The pool area is lovely and clean and the food at the bar is great.
The pool bar service is very slow and the waitress didnt seem very happy to be there and kept complaining about how busy she was. I dread to think how she will be in the height of the summer as this was the first weekend in May! Not that busy!!
The shower head broke in our apartment and we got over run with ants but we reported these issues to reception and they were dealt with.
Overall we loved our stay here and will be back next year. Im very sad to be home.
My main observation was the children at the pool. I felt very uncomfortable watching hen and stags running around the poolside in an inflatable willy with the children playing in the pool. I certainly wouldnt like that around my children. Not to mention the lanquage!

Room Tip: We stayed in Milan 1 and I think it was the best on site for position round the pool.

Only spent one night as we were looking for a place between Arcos and Granada. The resort is part of a gated area that includes an estate full of what looked like time shares and other apartments. The actual resort has 6 (?) buildings around a nice pool, each three floors with (I'm guessing) three apartments per floor. The apartment has large rooms - we had a two bedroom each of which had an en-suite plus large lounge area, kitchen and patio. Furnishings are quite nice if a bit bland. Negatives were terrible WiFi (constantly dropped connections if you could connect in the first place), very temperamental electronic door locks and a general feeling that you could be staying anywhere warm and sunny in the world. Sitting around the pool felt as much like Florida as Spain. Our room rate included breakfast which was basic but good and served at the pool bar. Not a cheap stay and definitely not the place if you want to sample anything approaching the real Spain. Even when you get to the sea (a 15 minute walk) you're in Puerto Banus where every other car is a Porsche or Lamborghini, the yachts have a captain and crew and flaunting wealth is an art form. Give me the Pueblos Blancos or Seville any day.
