“Off season visiting, comfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We family of 4 visited during off season thru RCI exchange. Kinda nervous looking at the reviews, but we marched on. But once we were there, we were surprised, the room is nice, clean, met standard. It has everything, we called the office several times to ask question and showed us how to use stuff, they showed up and good service. Beds are firm and comfortable, no issue. Walked down the hill, you got to see several restaurants and a market where you can get daily stuff. No elevator, so mobility-challenged folks, take note. Add that this resort is on top of the hill, will be more challenging for you. Common room could use some upgrade and they are aware of it and apologized for it. Indoor pool is nice, and we used it since outside pool will be too cold. Front desk is friendly enough, but strange thing is that they are terrible at giving directions. i would love to get some map and they draw on it, but they are not generous on doing it...:) Overall, this place is worth staying...we had a rental car which is a must if you live here.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

I stayed here for one week off-season. The staff was helpful and the apartment was spacious (easily fits 4 people, can squeeze in 6). Prior reviews mentioned towel problems, but I did not experience this and there were many in the room. Also it is fully stocked with cook ware. There is a short walk to the beach down a slight decline (15 minutes) and restaurants that are closer. A supermarket is about 10 minutes walk. For Americans, I used my Bank of America card in the Barclay ATMs (one 15 minutes walk away) without a fee. The shuttle takes you to CaboPino beach and back (tickets are 1.50). There is a bus stop (about 10 minutes walk away) that can take you to Marbella or Fuengirola and public transportation is easy to use. Overall, I had a nice relaxing week.

We were two couples travelling together and really enjoyed our first 'resort' holiday. We went in October so there were not many children around, but were impressed with the appartment which was modern and well furnished and had the benefit of 2 bathrooms.
We had decent entertainment in the bar at nights, but the whole place was peaceful. Plenty of restaurants in close proximity, but there was also an option of food at the resort which looked very reasonable and you could choose either a breakfast and lunch OR dinner for 12 euros if you paid for at least 4 days. Activities included Spanish lessons, and aquafit. We paid 4€ per day for utilities. We would definitely go again

Club Marbella RCI exchange Nov 2012
Our unit was quite small and dated, designed for up to 6 people (2 bedrooms, and a pull out sofa). We were just 3, but still found it a little cramped.
The second bedroom had two very small, 6 foot by 2 foot 6 beds. Standard single beds would have left very little floor space.
Sound proofing wasn't good. We could hear conversations (and snoring) from next door.
The shower was very small, and had some black mould growth.
Had to pay if you needed to use a safe.
26 euros for electricity on check in!!
Nice indoor pool, but compulsory to buy (6 euros) and wear a rubber hat.
If you want a towel: go to the reception desk and collect a ticket, hand it to the pool desk, keep the towel for the week, return the towel, collect your ticket, hand it back to reception desk (I bought my own locally).
Couldn't find much to do locally.

We stayed in Club Marbella with RCI. It was advertised as 'Silver Crown' but I wouldn't say it's worth the crown. It is ok, but a little bit outdated and not luxurious (not that we need it, but expected a bit more). The area has a lot of stairs, so wheelchairs would be impossible to use here. Also it's quite some distance from the beach and 'the strip' in Calahonda, up a steep hill. The lack of Aircon did'nt bother us as the ceiling fans were enough to cool down a bit. Temperatures were about 25-30 degrees in mid-September.
The apartments itself are spacious, with two bedrooms and a livingroom. The TV has many English channels, some German, French, Italian and even Finnish (!), but no Dutch or Russian.

We have just returned from this resort (family of 2 adults, 2 children 6 & 14) We did a last minute RCI exchange using our timeshare week. We have stayed in many resorts over the years & this is the most basic one we have stayed in. Having said that, we came for a week of sun which we had, so we did enjoy it.
Positives :
The staff were very friendly.Size of the apartment was good, liked the space. Younger son enjoyed the (free) kids' club, the staff there were very good. There was an indoor pool & jacuzzi, very nice.(Need to wear a cap in the pool - 6 euros per cap on-site, 2 euros at local mini-market) There is (free) on-site table tennis & mini-golf. There is a mini-bus to take you to the beach & the sister resorts. It runs at various times however.We went twice using it to Club Delta Mar but had to get a taxi back because of the bus timings.The pool at the Delta Mar is lovely, also had play area, basketball, mini-golf - great for kids. Some restaurants not too far away - Slow Boat Chinese was brilliant, also went to a Italian/Indian restaurant near the highway & we had good fish & chips at The Pit Stop, also near the highway. The apartment had a washing machine. There is a mini-gym & squash court on site (free I think) You could get towels (no charge) at reception.
Not so positives :
The location. Best described as a resort plonked in the middle of a residential area, so not many touristy shops around it. We never hire a car on holiday,but you would probably would need to here. The apartment 211(2 bed/2 bath) was fine, but with very out-moded decor, kitchen especially. Very small balcony - it is an apartment that can sleep 6 but there were only 4 chairs on balcony.We had a sea view (in the distance) Also would be too squashed for 6 people to sit in living area. The beds were very hard so woke up each day with a sore back.Walls very thin - we could hear people in the next apartment on the toilet !!! as well as flushing the toilet .I cannot imagine what it would be like staying here in the height of summer with the potential noise factor. Our toilets were very noisy when flushed & took ages to refill,making a hideous noise while doing so. 28 euros for electricity a bit steep. No air conditioning - fine in October,would be a problem in the summer,the fans would not be enough.Towels changed only once (that's fine for us), apartment only cleaned (barely) once.Rarely saw a cleaner about the whole time we were there.(there was a bloodied tissue that was on the stairs for 4 days!!!) Have to take out your own rubbish - cleaner didn't even do this the one time she was in.Resort looks generally 'tired' to me & could be done up. Pool area - too many sunbeds around it - there was literally no space between them. Also after about 3 pm (in October,anyway) the whole pool was in the shade as were most of the sunbeds around it. There is a separate sunbathing area higher up next to it that wasn't shaded. The flies about the pool area were almost unbearable at times.
So, to sum up :
All things considered we did enjoy our holiday.Your holiday's what you make it & the weather was fantastic & that's the main reason we went on a last-minute cheap flights holiday.

Just back from Club Marbella and yet again had great time. Apartment was spotless as always, as were the indoor and outdoor pool areas. Cafe Marbella was really busy which is good to see, this however did not make the service any less special and the food was great as always.

All staff very friendly and good to see a new bar "hardys" opened and busy, and our friends from the Slowboat have also opened a new Thai/Japanese/Chinese place which was fantastic both on the Strip.

Always made welcome and never have a bad word to say about Club Marbella, looking forward to next October already.
