We exchanged for a week at the Playa Andaluza expecting a good but typical Vacation Club experience and that's what we got. The resort was well maintained, two bedroom apartment was as expected, except we were given a ground floor handicap room in a resort less than a quarter full?
They had our reservation screwed up using my last name first and first name last so it took extra time to get in the resort and find our reservation but the receptionist was nice and figured it out eventually.
The staff was extremely friendly and outgoing, on site secure parking under the building was nice. The area around the resort was nothing you'd want to explore on foot and driving was required for any offsite activities.
The On site restaurant was good and moderately priced for a resort, the on site market was well stocked with a bakery that made great breads and pastries daily. The typical pressure to do a sales presentation was applied and had to be declined each day.
The gym was excellent with plenty of modern equipment, really first class stuff, from cardio, to machines, to free weights and stretching area. Indoor pool and spas were crowded with lots of kids but in good working order most of he week. Sauna was broken all week but steam room was relaxing.
Outdoor pools were unheated and in late April too cool for all but he brave polar bears. All in all a good point to explore the region, Puerto Banus and Ronda were must see areas, Malaga town centre was also impressive, very clean but you need to be careful of pickpockets as in most heavy tourist urban areas.
