“Best hotel we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

My husband and I have just returned from a 5 night trip to the Marbella Club Hotel and we can honestly say, we have never stayed anywhere so delightful and with such fantastic customer service. We have stayed in several 5 star hotels around the world and nothing can compare to the service this hotel offers. The staff are all so professional and helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. They are attentive, polite and are always checking to make sure that all customers are happy and that they have everything they need whilst at the same time not being over fussy - just right and not intrusive. The rooms are lovely, with accommodation sizes to suit all requirements for all guests. From standard executive rooms to family size villas. The moment we arrived, we felt relaxed. There was no usual first day holiday stress of finding your bearings, we just felt at home right away, again because the staff enabled us to do that by being so helpful and informative. We ate at the MC Cafe Bistro restaurant, the Grill and the Beach Buffet. All were superb and we would recommend to anyone to eat at any of these. The champagne bar is wonderful with every price of champagne available to guests plus all other drinks as well - and a good fine wine list, not adsurdly over the top compared to some other top notch venues, especially in the UK. We both had a Swedish massage and they were both fantastic. The spa is lovely with a Therapeutic pool, Hammam steam room and a sauna. Very professional staff here too. Please ignore any negative comments about this hotel, as they are not worth reading!

Room Tip: We stayed in a Garden View Suite, which was lovely and from speaking with several other guests (regu...

We were an extended family of six. Staying for 2 nights. On First impressions the hotel looks a little dated however everything works perfectly especially the wifi which is unusual. Food was excellent although not cheap the buffet at the beach is about €70 a head. The beach is very accessible and there are beds reserved for guests at no charge. Watch out for the jelly fish we all stung, the water was a little cloudy from the waves, clearly not the hotels fault but they did have soothing cream for afterwards but a little warning might have been good.
We used the concierge service to book a boat for the afternoon worked out very well.
All in you won't be disappointed here.

After another stay this week, I really must compliment the staff and management on their consistent excellence. I dined most nights in their grill restaurant which has now moved indoors. The staff are all so very good, it makes me smile.

In a world of mediocrity, hotels that are run as well as this are rare. Nowhere else in the region comes anywhere close. He staff are just so friendly and helpful that it makes guests want to return. All of the food is good and the sommelier is terrific and what a nice guy with it. From reception, to housekeeping to bell-staff…..they are all a pleasure to speak to and they could not be more willing to assist.

The grounds are meticulously well kept and to walk through the gardens and take in the differing aromas is to be in holiday heaven. Sadly, this is likely to be my last stay but only because I have just bought a holiday home nearby. I shall however make Marbella Club my favoured venue for celebrations.

Despite having had the most horrific weather the past few days in which we were pretty much hotel bound this did not dampen our spirits.
I can only put this down to the most wonderful hotel, set in beautiful grounds, very attentive and kind staff (who I think felt rather sorry for us with the storms!!) and the most consequetively delicious food throughout.
The morning we left the sun shone for the first time and we could see how truly spectacular the pool and surrounding were.
We stayed in room 363 which was beautifully furnished. My only comment is the hooks are too high to hang anything on in the bathrrom and you do need more towel racks! But that just sounds petty reading back!!
I hope to return for my 40th next year!

Room Tip: All the executive suites have been newly appointed. We went to look at a seaview room but in my per...

We stayed at the Marbella Club Hotel for six nights and from the first moment, we felt like royalty. The front desk is friendly, cheery, and willing to do whatever we need. There are some rooms that are newly renovated - that's what we got. Great shower, fresh flowers, champagne, and fruit waiting for us at check-in time. Flowers were even replaced throughout the week! The buffet breakfast was also fantastic. Overall, we felt really pampered. Guest relations, Sophia, is incredibly sweet and goes the extra distance to make sure we were enjoying our stay. She even tried to locate something we lost at the airport. Highly recommended!
