“Fabulous hotel, wonderful staff - a most enjoyable stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at the marbella club hotel. The hotel rooms and villas are set in the most lovely gardens which are beautifully maintained. There are two pools, one set within the gardens, with plenty of loungers and attentive staff. There is a pool side restaurant where we enjoyed lunch everyday, the menu is varied and the food of a high and consistent standard, the service was brilliant.
The other pool is a 2 minute walk away through the grounds, it's a little busier but the beach is right by which has plenty of beds and is attended by the helpful staff.
We enjoyed drinks in the lovely bar, where the service was again of a high and charmingly old-school nature. Dinner in the Grill restaurant was a great experience, it is expensive and the food is a little hit or miss but still a most enjoyable evening. There are also lots of restaurant within walking distance of the hotel.
The gym was well equipped and modern and the kids club looked like a spread from Elle decoration and seemed most popular with the children!
The only downside was the lack of soundproofing between the rooms, which at times was quite disconcerting.
Overall a really great stay in a beautiful setting with amazing staff and quality all round.

Was really looking forward to our 5 night stay but in short the rooms are dated the food extremely expensive and if due to the swimming pool actually being a restaurant with 30 sun loungers the beach was the only place to catch the sun.
The golf course was wonderful and infact the hi light of our holiday.

Overall Marbella Club is a really good hotel. Very nice staff, good food, location etc. It is in need of this refurb they are now doing, we stayed in a great new room and our friends room was a blend of 80s interior highlights. So I would request a new room when you book. We stayed for a few nights with our little girls, the new kids club just opened and it is absolutely gorgeous, so stylish and very friendly staff. Worth going just for that! We also had a adorable babysitter which our girls loved. We had lunch every day on the beach and the food was very good, but if you have little ones the beach isn't that perfect as it is very steep down to the water. But all taken into the account, a very pleasant stay and we would happily go back.

Been once before this trip for Sunday lunch on the beach. Full of celebs and glamourously people. This time it was for a birthday which turned into a marathon. The wine flowed freely the food too and it was amazing. Waiters are incredible at their jobs, easy on the eye for the ladies and we all had the best time, great setting fantastic for people watching all in all perfect for a 12 hour lunch!

For years my family enjoyed staying at Marbella Club but we now only visit for lunch or dinner as we have a home nearby. We recommend Marbella Club to all of our friends and the many people we know visiting Europe from the USA. Most recently, we held a dinner party at the Grille and have also in recent months enjoyed lunch by the upper pool and also a number of family buffet lunches by the pool. Marbella Club's buffet lunch is legendary. Every summer they also have a pop-up beach fish restaurant which is terrific.

In a nutshell, this hotel is fantastic. It is an asset to Marbella. Book to stay here without a moment's hesitation.

We visit Marbella every year and have often popped into the Marbella Club for a drink but on this occasion we decided to have lunch. We arrived to the main reception area and were offered a ride in a buggy down to the restaurant by the beach. All the staff were friendly and accommodating. Truly 5* in magnificent surroundings. A very well presented and varied buffet is delivered with just about every salad option. Shellfish was in abundance especially lobster and langoustines, my favourite. Service is impeccable and it was a memorable experience. We are looking forward to going back again next year.
