“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012 via mobile

Stayed in the studio apartments which were good size, no worse than expected. Really good location on the sea front. At the start of the seawalk towards Puerto Banus where there are loads of bars and restaurants. Also on the edge of the old town which is fabulous to wander round - also full of shops and cafes and some great restaurants.
We got the bus to Marbella bus station and then a taxi - make sure the taxi knows it's the Princess Playa apts in Marbella you're going to as ours started to take us on the motorway to the next resort where there is another hotel by the same name! Fare should be less than 10 euros. Taxi to PB marina was less than 15 euros.
The roof top pool is small but if all u want to do is dip in and out it's fine. There's no music there. The breakfast buffet is good and fresh. Lots of choice but we didn't sample the cooked brekkie, prefer the continental. Free WiFi at reception is good - saves data charges. Staff generally helpful.
Would definitely go back again.

I stayed here with two friends for four nights. The location is excellent, such a short walk across the road to the beach. The swimming pool was lovely and we always got a sunbed, although the hotel did seem pretty quiet, so you may not in peak season. The staff are friendly and kept the rooms super clean, fresh towels daily. It is close to the supermarket, restaurants, everything you could possibly want! I would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at this hotel twice in the past 3 months.
The lobby is nicely decorated, the staff are very polite and speak excellent English.
The second visit we had to keep rearranging our dates, which must have been a complete pain for the staff dealing with it as we changed the dates about 7 times!
We asked for a room with a sea view and we got what we wanted.
The maids cleaned every day if you wanted them to, or if you just wanted clean towels and extra toilet roll , you only had to ask a maid and it was done!
The pool is on the top floor with a fairly good view of the beach and the sea, it's not a massive pool area, probably about 20 sun loungers, but there was also a shaded area that you could sit in.
The breakfast was continental , with cereal, fruit, yoghurts,pastries, toast, meats and cheeses, and also Spanish omelette, hard boiled eggs or fried or scrambled, bacon and tiny sausages, also tea, coffee, fruit juices or herbal teas or water.if you like a good fry up, this would not be for you!!
The hotel is situated right on the front , the beach is nice and you can hire sun lounger and parasol just up the beach for 4euro per day.( the cafe that hire the sun loungers cook excellent locally caught fish).
There is wifi at the hotel but you do have to go to the lobby to connect, which has lovely seating areas.
There is room service if required, and you can order drinks (alcoholic also) and snacks upto 4 pm.
There is also a service for arranging trips, morocco being one of the day trips.
There is a supermarket around the corner that is open until 2 am where you can stock up on food or tea, coffee ,milk and water, all the rooms are equipped with fridges, hob, microwave .
On the day of our departure, we were able to check out of our room at 12, place our luggage in a hold all room, use the pool, go out for something to eat and then use the the special rooms allocated for departing guests where we could shower and change, obviously clean towels and toiletries were provided by the hotel.
If you require a taxi for the bus station or the airport, the staff will ring one for you.
We would stay here again, it was pleasant, clean accommodating and close the amenities we wanted.the staff were lovely.

Room Tip: Ask if you can reserve a room with a front sea view, it might always be possible, but if you don'...

My girlfriend and I stayed here from 30th May until 3rd June for a short break while in Marbella, after looking at lots of different hotels in the area I choose this one as it has great reviews and the location seeemed very good. Everything lived up to expectation, the hotel is very clean and has a nice atmosphere as you walk in. We were fortunate to get a sea view room which was nice and most of the rooms do have some sort of sea view but some towards the back will not. However the hotel is on a promenade and the beach is right in front of you, you could probably throw a stone from our room to the beach it was that close. Also along this promenade are lots of bars, restaurants and small shops and behind the hotel across a busy main road is the old town which is full of cafe's and shops.

The apartment is very clean and spacious and the beds are changed daily. There is also a few english tv channels if you wanted some background noise etc. The kitchen is a good size and has everything you would need to cook meals in. We paid extra for breakfast and while it was nice we felt we could have saved some money and cooked in the apartment.

We were both very impressed by this hotel and the staff are very pleasant and helpful but there are a few things that could be improved on. There is no WI-FI throughout the hotel, it is only availabe in the reception area and the signal isn't great. I had to do some work while away and some reviews say there is wi-fi so I had to come down to reception which isn't any trouble and it is free. Finally we hired a car and were told that there was car parking available at the hotel and which tere is car parking around the corner you have to pay for it. The hotel did say that they have an agreement with the car park so that you can get discount but we didnt get any discount and had to pay full price. Apart from these minor details I would defintely stay at this hotel again in the future.

Room Tip: Front rooms are better and have a sea view

Decided to stay one night in Marbella in transit between two other locations and found the Princesa Playa offering a special of €65 B&B for 2.
We stayed in a one bed 'apartment type' unit for the one night. The Hotel was in an excellence seafront, town centre location.
The unit was a little small but had everything you would need for a short stay of two three night or a long weekend. It had a two ring hob and a small fridge.
The unit was spotless, the bathroom / shower very good and the beds very comfortable.
The range and quality of food on offer at breakfast was ahead of our expections. The dining room is location at the top of the building and is very airy with a great view of the sea front. When we went out on the terrace ( a dining option) we were surprised to discover (not on our list of requirements) that the hotal has a small pool and sun terrace on the room level.
Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. A luggage storage room is available.
The only negative point is the lack of a car park. You have to use a nearby public car park and while we were told the hotel had a 'special deal' with the operators we had to pay the full rate on departure.
Overall, a great deal at the price we got and if we are returning it will be high on our list even if the price was in the €80-90 range.

Room Tip: Look for one facing the sea front
