“Exceptional Experience”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

I haven't been to the Marbella club for many years but have to say that it was still truly magical retaining all of its charm. My husband and I took our daughter and her friend for a celebratory lunch in the grill. The food and the service were very good at all times and we did not need to attract attention as they had our every need covered but discretely and almost with casual elegance. I can't wait for another excuse to go soon! The restaurant is not inexpensive but given the general prices charged in Marbella this is by far the best place to eat. My advice is to ensure that you are hungry as I just did not do it justice. Also ask the waiter to explain the menu so that you don't miss anything! Enjoy. Incidentally the site is beautifully maintained and a delight.

expensive but well situated with an excellent layout and beautiful mature gardens generating a wonderful ambiance. Food in the hotel restaurants is also excellent although like everything here a little pricey. Only suggestion to improve is to purchase bicycles to allow guests to fully enjoy the wonderful promenade

stayed for the first time this september having read the reviews and also the fact that it is one of the "leading hotels of the world"
have stayed in several of the leading hotels in the past and this one is the best yet
staff very attentive,the room was an upgrade and spotless with all facilities one would wish for.
the only criticism is that the price of food was high but the champagne breakfast included in the deal was a wonderful start to the day.
will definitely be coming back as soon as possible

We have eaten twice at the Marbella Grill this year and each time the meal and service have been outstanding. The menu can be pricey, but the outside bar and eating area, plus the service and food make it worth it.

We just got back from a very nic holiday in Marbella Club Hotel. We had rented one of the private villas with heated pool and it was a blast. My family (6 adults 2 kids) is very hard to please and I am long term trip planner for all the family, so I am always a little nervous when we try a new place.

We had several special requests that we e-mailed before our arrival and everything was answered quickly and done with perfection. Thank you very much!! It was the same when we came. Everything was ready. We stayed in other 5 stars hotels before and it was also nice, but I had a feeling here that nothing was a problem and everything I needed was done and done in time. As it should be. The staf was very heplful and everytime I needed something special I did not feel I bother them at all. My daughter was sick during our stay and we needed to use vacume cleaner to suck cold from her nose with a little machine which you connect to vacume cleaner and when I was asking for a vacume cleaner I was worried how the staf will react, but they answered like it was the most common thing to ask :) Very nice of them. So anyting you need here, you can get (sure you also pay a lot... :) but it is not always like this - sometime you pay and the service is poor, but not here! Liked it a lot.

Food was great - we had to eat in the hotel a lot, because my younger daughter is very little and can not stay up late, so we used room service and tried different restaurants in the hotel. They are expensive, but the food is very very good.

The cleaning of this hotel is almost too much - cleaning service is everywhere working all the time. It is impressive, but to tell the truth - the cleaning ladies were a little slow - or they were simply too hardworking, since they spend 3-4 hours cleaning our villa every day. Villa was very very clean, but we were trying to enjoy some privacy :) But we found our way of mananing things and told them when to come.

If I needed to point out to some little imperfection about the hotel - Villas are located quite far from the sea. There is no golf in the resort, although it says it is a golf hotel. You have to drive to another place. Tennis is also not in the hotel, but in sister property Puerto and you have to pay for it :(

We had little problem with noise - our villa number one was very close to a huge airconditioning station which went on and off every 30 seconds day and night and it was very very loud. It started with a big bang every 30 seconds... hard to fall asleep. we reported the problem. But I do not think there is much they can do about it. There was also a noise in the morning when some people were cleaning streets with electric devices of another hotel behind our wall. It was quite unpleasant, because you want to lay down by your private pool and reed and not to hear street cleaning from leaves.

Also (not a fault of the hotel) the sea at this location was surprisingly cold - so do not expect warm water for kids in the sea here. It is more for short refreshment in hot days.

But overall it was a great holiday and thanks to guest relation service, great breakfast staf, great pool restaurant. Loved it there!

My husband and I took our 4 year old son for a week and had an amazing holiday. We have been before but not with our son and we had forgotten how wonderful this hotel is. The setting is superb with a luxury feel yet allowing for a relaxed holiday. Our son went to the kids club for a couple of mornings and really enjoyed it, they put on different acitivities everyday for them and even swapped arrangements round to suit you if you requested something different. We find it hard to get a hotel that caters for both our desire to be in luxury surrounds with a real touch of class, and allows our son to actually have fun. The beach is wonderful and the pools are superb.

We had an excutive room close to the top pool which was beautiful. The breakfast were truly wonderful and there is more than enough choice for all tastes. The outside bar and restaurant in the evening is candlelit and like something out of a film set and you are surrounded by history. The service is also excellent and nothing is too much trouble.

The hotel is brilliantly placed for both Marbella and Puerto Banus so you can eat out here which is nice to add some variety to the holiday.

We can't recommend it enough and will definately be returning next year!
