We stayed at the Barcelo Marbella for three nights while attending a friend's birthday celebrations in the Marbella area. We booked the Barcelo based largely on a great value price via a hotel booking website....and didn't quite know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. The standard room was very large and spacious, there's a very good pool area with its own snack bar, and the breakfast is excellent (much better than we've had in some 5-star hotels in the past). Our second floor room had a superb view of the neighbouring golf course and the mountains beyond.
And, in terms of location, it might not be in the centre of either Marbella or Puerto Banus or on the beach, but that probably explains the competitive pricing. In any case, a short taxi ride takes you to either of those places....although taxis in this area don't come cheap. If we had a small gripe, it's that the bathroom toiletries weren't replenish at all during our stay. A little annoying, but hardly a major issue. Otherwise, this is a great value, roomy and pleased place to stay.
