I literally just got back from a four day holiday in Marbella, Spain, and I was supposed to stay at Mediterraneo Apartmentos Marbella. I booked the stay via Thomas Cook Holidays UK (approx. £180 for 4 nights). As I had read a mix of both positive and negative comments about these apartments, I sent an email to the staff and asked to stay in one of the modern rooms, seaside view and preferably on one of the upper levels of the building (translated into spanish w the help of a friend)
When my gf and I arrived to the reception, we were told that our room was located about 300 metres down the shore, "at the same hotel", but in another building without a Reception. After a 5 min walk, slightly confused and bothered, we arrived to "Eden Roc II". An even better location, more modern building and with better surroundings just right next to the beach. My gf and I were shocked when we first saw the apartment. It was beautiful! IKEA-interior and fully fitted apartment with flatscreen tv, washing machine, dishwasher, fully fitted kitchen with all supplies, bath towels, iron and iron board, drinking glasses, EVERYTHING really. The flat was cleaned on our 2nd day; beds were made, towels were replaced with new ones and toilet tissue was stocked up.
I am not sure why we were placed at Eden Roc II instead of MAM, but it might be because of the email that I sent. The only cons about staying at Edec Roc II was the fact that there was no reception in the building. Could be useful for questions about the location, but most locals understand basic words like "supermarket" and can give brief directions in english on how to get around. There is no WiFi at Eden Roc II, but most cafees and restaurants offer free WiFi for their visitors so that is really not a major problem.
I managed to find a link to the actual apartment we stayed in (I have also attached some of the photos that I took):
