Vasari Vacation Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Stayed in the Vasari Resort for the last few days of October and returned yesterday. We stayed in a ground floor two bedroom apartment - Apartment No. 1, in the Venecia block. .

Lovely apartment, very clean, modern, spacious. Plenty of storage space, kitchen good and it even had a utility room. Only thing missing which might have been useful was a microwave (not that I had any intention of cooking or reheating food though!), but some people might want to.

Very large balcony to this particular apartment with carried on right across the width of the lounge and both bedrooms, and then an extra large add-on bit on the end. Plenty of comfortable seating supplied on the balcony for your exclusive use which was great.

We didn't hire a car because we don't like driving abroad but it would be an advantage to have your own vehicle as there was no restaurants or food available on the complex at this time of year, which meant that we had to be 'out' all the time as to get taxis back and forth just for something to eat is a pain. If we had known there wasn't an on site restaurant at this time of year then we might not have booked it.

There were a few kids in the jacuzzi right outside our room in the late afternoon (we were out during the day), and I would imagine that during the high season it could have been a bit noisy.

We had booked B & B and the continental style breakfast was delivered to our apartment in the morning.

Taxis into the main town were reasonable - about 7-8 Euros each way. Receptionists were lovely and very helpful. It was also cheaper to book our return taxi which took us directly to the airport via the receptionist than it was to book a shared coach which gave us an unwanted tour of Spain collecting from loads of other hotels via the tour operator.

My tip for travelling to and from the airport is 'ask the Vasari Receptionist to do it for you'. It is a cheaper, more convenient, faster and you don't have loads of other tourist drop offs to other hotels.

I don't know if children's activities were laid on during the high season, but apart from the pool and a play area there wasn't anything else for kids available at the resort at this time of year.

I would definitely return to the Vasari Resort again - in fact I don't think I would go anywhere else. This would be my first choice. The ONLY drawback is no restaurant or food available during the day or evening at the Vasari resort which we were not told about when we booked.

Room Tip: I liked the ground floor space and being able to sit by the Jacuzzi area and wander in and out of my...

We stayed in Palamaro8 which was a 2 bed on 2 floors with 2 bath rooms
all rooms were of very good size.
plenty of cupboard space.
flat screen tv in the living room and master bedroom.
The kitchen was well equiped, only down side was the lack of counter space.
All the decor was in good order and clean throughout. (the maid visited a couple of times during or stay)
the big issue with the app. was the main bathroom, and i have read comments on this before.
The smell coming up the drain was most disgusting.
we tried leaving the light on so the fan would run...this helped out the smallest amount.
we reported the issue and the maid bought some kind of extractor unit along, again this helped a tiny amount which we had the unit for a couple of hours.
i dont know the long term solution to this, if at all.
You get a couple of bottles of shampoo.But this is not a hotel so not supprised by that.
Next the shower in the main bathroom, despite looking good with various jets, never got hot, just warm. all other taps in the app were fine.
the master bathroom also had jacuzzi style bath, although non functioning.
Being that we travvelled out of or the end of season the pool bar was closed ,and the pool fairly cold. but was not suprised.
The supermarket just outside the community resort is well stocked,similar to medioum sized co-op.
All felt very safe and secure driving throught the guarded comuntity, then through the electronic gates to under ground parking.
We drove to varoius places around the area.
San pedro alcantara was nice older style town, we also found a "costa bear" similar to build a bear near by.
Playa del cristo in estapona had a great child friendly beach.
old town marbella in orange sqaure has good shopping and restaurants.
parque de la palolma in benalmadena is a great park to spend some time and freee on the way back to the aiprort
both selwo marine and safari parks are visits with the kids. (marine is half day no problem, and next to the park)
peurto banus has good shopping and eating. the hipocor supermarket is like a large john lewis.
parking was easy, underground parking in most places, all be it expensive...€8 for about 3 hours.
The question is would i stay there again? the app is in good location to explore the area.easy access to super market for self catering, and easy access to motorway.
the whole place looks beatiful lovley gardens and all very clean... just need a peg for your nose if you stay in Palamaro room8

We visited these apartments at the end of sept for 3nights. We rented a 2 bed apart between 3 girls. They were clean, spacious and very comfortable. Couldn't fault them really. Only 5 min taxi from the port or a 20 ish minute walk. Supermarket approx 12min walk away. Towels for pool provided. Only thing they could provide is a 'small kitchen welcome pack' to include, dishwasher tablet, cloth, washing up liquid etc... You will have an enjoyable time here.

Myself and my fiance really enjoyed our holiday at this aparthotel. We spent 9 nights here and had hired a car so we spent most of our time exploring the local villages and towns. The Vasari Resort was the perfect base for this kind of trip. Most days we came back to the resort at around 4pm and there was always plenty of free space around the pool to enjoy the last few hours of sunshine! We never had a problem getting a sunbed like in other hotels. The atmosphere here during the daytime is very tranquil and the pool area with its trees and gardens is lovely. We parked our car in the underground parking which gave direct access to our room and meant our car was always lovely and cool when we got in.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which was a very generous size and had a big balcony with a dining table and chairs - again much bigger balcony than most hotels offer. Our apartment was cleaned every other day with lots of attention to detail - they even put our dishwasher on/cleaned our dining table.

It is about a 15 minute walk into Puerto Banus which was fine, we tended to walk there and get a taxi back which cost around 7 euros.

The only negative I would mention about this resort is that it can be a little noisy at night time and there were some large groups staying over the weekend that we were there. Some nights when we came back from a night out at about midnight the groups were sat on their balconys and could be easily heard. However this did not really go on through the night and we still got a really good nights sleep most nights.

Overall this was a perfect base for our holiday and I would recommend it.

Room Tip: The apartment building 'Milan' has pool views, however there are some rather large palm tree...

Stayed one night here passing through. We are travelling with a 16 year old so the one bedroom apartment with the settee/bed was perfect as it was very spacious. The pool and surrounding areas of the resort are really pretty and very clean. All the staff were really helpful. Wi-fi fine in the common areas but a bit more intermittent in the rooms. Not too far to work to Puerto Banus for a nice evening meal.
Only gripe was the bed was really hard!

Room Tip: We had a road facing room which was quiet but a pool facing one would have been even better.

Just arrived, we asked for soap bars for the bathroom and shower, we were told to use the shampoo instead...
The following day, we asked for the towels to be changed, they told us "we don`t change towels during the week"...
Finally, when we asked at 6pm why the room hadn`t ben cleaned, they answered that they don`t clean the room when guests stay for two nights only...
I wander if these guys live in dirt in their own homes.
We won`t come back again.

I have just got back from a girlie long weekend at Vasari Resort and it was perfect!
We chilled by the very quiet pool surrounded by gorgeous gardens by day and partied in Puerto Banus by night.
All the staff at the Vasari were so helpful especially the guy who ran the snack bar.
The apartments were so spacious, clean and the decor was pretty good too.
It was a 5 minute taxi ride into PB or you could walk (takes about 25 mins, especially in heels!!).
As for PB recommendations - we partied at Newscafe which was brilliant and Seven which was OK.
We ate in a lovely Italian called Dali's which was up some steps opposite Dior and Hermes.
