“Great weekend away”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

My friend and I recently stayed at the Princesa Playa in Marbella.
We had found the hotel through tripadvisor and chosen it based on its location and price - it was just as we had antipcated.
We were lucky enough to get a sea view room which was brilliant.
The room was big enough for a long weekend with twin beds, bathroom, balcony and kitchen facilities of fridge/freezer, crockery & cutlery (you will need your own washing up things).
The room was cleaned daily.
The restaurant that served breakfast and had a bar that opened till 4pm was on the 7th floor and the pool was on the roof. Breakfast was basic but plentiful.
During our visit the weather was good but the wind was strong, which we weren't protected from up on the roof but we braved it out.
All staff were friendly and helpful.
The hotel is perfectly located at the quiet end of the beackfront promenade and the old town sits just behind.
Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview if you are comfortable with the sound of the waves

Just back from a great weekend. The staff were so friendly and our room although basic was all that was needed and I couldn't find fault. The rooftop pool was fab and the bar :) breakfast was the let down so my tip would be to eat breakfast elsewhere. But the location is sing perfect!! Great weekend d would go again

We stayed here on our recent trip to Marbella and everything was perfect. the staff are friendly and most of them speak English. The reception staff were very helpful in letting us print our boarding passes for our return flight. They have a little pool on the roof top terrace, which we enjoyed on 2 different days during our stay. The location is right on the beach and within walking distance of all the restaurants and the old town.
I would recommend anyone to stay here, you will not be disappointed.

Spent a week here over the easter holiday, The location is as good as it gets, right on the beach, you go to sleep to the sound of the med crashing against the shore.....reception staff very pleasant and the place is spotless.

Stopped here for 2 night at the end of our trip through Spain. Fantastic location on the beachfront, just a short stroll to all the bars and restaurants Mabella beach and old town have to offer. Big comfortable room and clean. Beautiful rooftop sundeck and pool with amazing views. For what we paid this hotel is excellent value for money and we will be staying again. The only downside is because each room is equipped with a kitchenette, you can often smell in the corridors some foul concoction your neighbour is brewing in their room for tea! Bleurgh!

Stayed at Princesa Playa Hotel in March for 3 nights.

Excellent stay! The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated next to the beach and very close to restaurants/shops etc.

Room was clean and comfortable. Maid service daily.

I would definately return in the future.

Spent 3 nights in this excellent hotel! Off-season price for studio was €55 per night inc breakfast for 2 people. Fridge, kettle and cooking facilities in room means you aren't buying every single drink or snack so that's a big saving. Super-clean everywhere, breakfast buffet with a huge selection of hot and cold food either on roof terrace or inside with panoramic sea views. Could not fault this hotel. A great indulgence to escape winter weather. Would imagine summer to be extremely crowded but a perfect amount of people at this time of year. Lots of good tapas places to eat and many restaurants on beach itself. Buses run regularly from Malaga airport to Marbella. We paid €8 each one way and €6 on the way back.Takes 45mins then taxi from bus station to hotel about €7 compared to €70 from airport. We will be back!

Room Tip: Our room was on the side and didn't get much sun but sea still visible. I have heard it's wo...
