We were here for a week Feb 5th-12th. We stayed in a garden suite with wrap around porch.
What an amazing hotel!!!
I am a travel agent who mostly travel to the caribbean every year and never understood why people complain about 5* hotels not being "true" 5*....
Now I know what a true 5* is!
We got there and before introducing ourselves they knew who we were!!!
And it was like this for the whole week!
I had offered this vacation to my boyfriend as a Christmas present, as part of an all week golf get away.
We played golf everyday at their private golf club, a truly challenging golf course with 5* service (again!!!)
I have NOTHING to complain about
Everything was perfect, and we will be back
Weather at this time of year was perfect to play golf (15C-18C, wall to wall sunshine)
Staff was so nice, it was unreal
Service was like nothing I have ever seen
It is not cheap, but it is soooooo worth it!
If you want to indulge, spoil yourself rotten..... do not hesitate!!
you'll love it!

We stayed at the Marbella Club Hotel from 5 to 10 February and it was just wonderful. We had a big, recently renovated room near the sea, a huge terrace. TV, DVD, Radio, separate bathtub and shower, two basins. WONDERFUL PILLOWS and DUVETS, the quality of sleep was very good, no disturb.

As it was off-season, workmen make some renovations nearby but it did not disturb us at all (and they were polite too, said good morning etc. if walked by).

Breakfast buffet has a very large variety of all the healthy food (an unhealthy varieties available, too, for those who want to enjoy them). We did not had a lunch at the hotel (78 euros/person), it seemed a bit over-priced but seemed to be delicious. Perhaps in the summertime we might have eaten that but now we wanted to walk around and have lunch e.g. in Puerto Banus (3,5 km, easy to walk there) or nearby Marbella.

All the personnel was very service minded!

The gym was about 5 minutes away in Puente Romano and it was well-equipped. We had our workout different time each day and there were only a couple of persons each time in addition to us. In the evening and in the morning it was very chilly (only around 4 - 5 C) so we had to had warm clothes for the walk/run (we did not use the sauna etc. as we wanted to take a bath together in our room). It did not bother us but it is good to know this.

The spa was under renovation and we did not use that (weren't every sure in advance whether

During the days, it was warm (around 20 C) and everyday the sun was shining brightly.

Everything was just perfect for our stay and it was a good break for us from Finland, full of snow and dark at the moment. We want to thank the Marbella Club for making our stay so wonderful!

Thanks very much for your review, we’re delighted that you had such lovely weather and it sounds like you made the most of all the facilities.

I am pleased to report that from this summer we will have a fitness centre in the hotel, so guests will no longer have to walk to the Puente Romano for their daily workout and the spa will be reopening in March.

We are delighted we can offer some winter sunshine and we hope to see you here again soon.

We had a five day break here and could not fault it. And a huge bonus is that this part of Spain - it is very far south - seems to have wall to wall sunshine most of the time so it is an excellent destination in winter, low season months. We had five days of cloudless blue skies, temperatures 17 to 21 degrees mostly. Warm enough to sunbathe and swim in the hotel's heated pool.

Rooms are good. We were upgraded to sea-view one, having only reserved a standard room.
But I asked later to view all grade rooms and they were all very attractive. Several were being refurbished for the coming season, as is the Spa.

And the staff at this hotel are wonderfully helpful and attentive, as other reports have said.

Lunch at the beachside pool was an expensive set price of 78 euro - no light snacks - but I imagine this is to discourage too many people from the public walkway outside from flocking in! You can get light lunches - pizzas, club sandwiches, salads etc- by the other pool in gardens above or in MC Cafe.

Dinner in the candlelit Grill is a good experience - food excellent, as is service - certainly worth trying at least once! The more informal MC Cafe is also a proper restaurant - large varied menu - featuring dishes from Spaghetti Bolognese, to MC Burger and fries - to MC fish and chips..informal and friendly. Breakfasts even offer champagne , fruits are freshly squeezed....

Not essential to hire a car here - you can walk to Marbella Town along the beach "promenade"
in about 20minutes, a lovely walk - or in the other direction to Puerto Banus..Or the local taxis are
very good - about 8 to 10 euro into Marbella or back. Also saw a lot of people cycling along beach walkway.

We were very impressed with whole area around the hotel, clean ,sandy beaches, exotic vegetation ...towering palms everywhere - it is great place for a winter break - can t wait to return.

Room Tip: The more expensive beach /sea view rooms are lovely BUT furtherest from main hotel and involving qui...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review including this useful information about the area and average temperatures. I am pleased to say that more people are discovering the destination in the winter months and with the added bonus of being able to ski in the Sierra Nevada it’s a real treat.

You’ve done a great job reviewing all the restaurants as well so thanks so much.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Love this hotel. It has a lush, sub-tropical feel and though there are a lot of glamorous people here, it's always low key. Living a bit on the grandeur of its past, but it still has style and charm.

Breakfast is great and the buffet by the beach club pool is stupendous (and not cheap). Dinner under the stars in the candlelit main restaurant is lovely.

Service is accomplished and the concierge as helpful as you'd expect in what is the best hotel on the Costa Del Sol and one of the best in Spain.

Rooms are attractive, with enough local touches to give them a bit of extra character. Some of them need a facelift, but the newly refurbished suites are very smart. The villas are luxurious and have their own pools and gardens, but the views aren't great.

There's plenty to do - golf, riding, a tennis club next door in the Puente Romano and a spa which is aging a bit but has good treatments. There's a kids club with pool and a garden where our boys (4 and 7) made friends quickly and were kept busy by energetic staff.

This a club, hotel, villas, you name it. the beach is a fair walk from our room, but it is very nice. fully serviced, and there is a separate company 10 feet away from the lounge chairs that give good and reasonably priced massages. The lunch food was just terrible & overpriced, but champagne breakfast was awesome, and the dinner that we had brought to our private deck was quite nice. Oh, and we got engaged there, a suprise engagement, that the staff executed to perfection.

Wonderful place!
