“Stayed here many, many times, always excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Used our timeshare weeks for 2 week stay in Aug. As always the resort was spotless clean and staff excellent.

Usual trouble getting a unit we wanted and despite asking for a high floor, got a 1st floor and no manner of maoning or waiting chnaged anything. I don see why they ask for preferences if they cant fulfil.

Accepting that all was good.

There are plenty of reviews on here explaining the virtues of the accommodation so i wont go into it again, but it is large, clean and has everything you need.

The particular weeks we stayed (first 2 in Aug) apparently in high Spainish occupation time, so the bulk of those there were spanish. Not a problem, but the film shows and the kids club stuff were in spanish with english subtitles, as they cater for the main language group.

The kids club is excellent and staff remember the childrens names from last year, thats amazing!

If you shop and eat on the resort expect to pay for it, the shop is pricey but convenient (there is a new small supermarket 5 mins walk so unless you are very lazy you can avoid paying high prices) and the restuarants are very expensive, nice but expensive.

Room Tip: arrive early and hope!

Wonderful hotel. The most helpful staff. A real holiday for the whole family. Worth every penny. Already booked again for next year. The hotel is in a beautiful location and near enough to the shops. Marbella is also a really nice city. The service was exceptional.

we went to the Marriott Marbella Beach Resort for four days, we booked a two bedroom apartment (no.4225). the apartment was very dissapionted, it was smelly with very old furniture.

the resort it self was very nice, there is a supermarket where you can buy anything you need, the pools were good and the food was nice but over priced.

the marriotts is an excellent place to stay simply to get away from it all /accommodation is excEptional as you expect from a marriotts resort .Theresort is alittle bi off thebeaten track but near enough to bus stops etc should you wish to venture into Marbella well worth a visit esp the old town. If you want complete relaxation in luxury this is the place for you .

Room Tip: choose one near the beach on first or second floors for excellent seaviews

Stayed here with the family, the reosrt is very nice. We were invited for a presenation of Marriott. All went ok, but I asked the manager, a guy from Egypt, if this was timeshare. This guy I think his name was hassan or something. He said that it was not timeshare. I looked on my mobile and it was. This manager is very unpleasant, he is disrespected my wife and ignored her completely. My advice, nice resort but never and I mean never go on their sales presentation. They are liars. This guy even told me that he had no reservation possibilities for August 2014. What kind of hotel is that.
STAY AWAY FROM THEM. HE IS AFTER YOUR MONEY

First of all, let me first tell you we own a timeshare in Ko'Olina Hawaii so comparing Mariott properties. We wanted to travel to Europe so we chose Spain & the only time we could travel was during the summer. That being said, yes it was crowded & lots of kids. So note to self: If all possible avoid traveling during the summer. Marbella Mariott was nice but they didn't have grills or ice machines. Their property is fenced in unlike Hawaii where it's open directly to beach area. Because it was summer, lots of families on the beach even in front of Marbella property. I was amazed how families pitch huge tents & have a family day at the beach plus some women go topless regardless of kids running around. It was a cultural experience. We had trouble with getting in to our villa. The key wouldn't work & second time the locksmith came to fix it. Still continued to have problems & the fourth time the locksmith took out the lock & had to completely replace it. THis was frustrating but we tried not to get stressed up about it. We only ate at the pool grill and the pork ribs & chicken were good & not too pricey. But I mostly cooked & we went to the local grocery store to buy food which was cheaper than the Marriott market place. By the way, grocery store has a great bakery & bought excellent desserts. Make sure you go to the Saturday market held at the bullring in Marbella & great things to buy (summer clothes, glasses, shoes, souvenirs, t-shirts, bags, etc.) and don't be afraid to bargain. Lots of places to eat! Overrall we made the best of our vacation and majority of the time we spend @ pool since we had to go early to grab a pool chair.

Room Tip: We were unable to get oceanview like in Hawaii but we had a partial view of the ocean. I like to ru...

Really enjoyed our family holiday to the Marriott Beach Resort - We stayed in June for a week and it was total relaxation - The kids had a ball - great pool / slide and plenty of activity to keep them busy if they wished in the kids club which had ongoing activities they could opt in and out of .... Plenty of gym classes for those so inclined also - The apartments were a very good standard and as always the Marriott beds ensure a great night sleep -
I would recommend hiring a car as taxis to local hotels start to add up plus it is handy to do a reasonable supermarket shop although there is store on the complex also
There is a quiet pool also for those looking to escape the kids !!

Room Tip: For those with kids I would ask for something half way between reception and the pool
