One night stay - a gift from my husband. We managed to park and book in before midday which was a bonus. Efficient and friendly reception. Large, comfortable room with lovely views over grounds and sea. Beautiful spaces, facilities, pools and gardens. Best manicure ever and a surprise treat of a bottle of bubbly and cake delivered to our room - guess they overheard conversation or got date from passport. Great breakfast catering to all tasteless. We will stay again.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Marbella Playa Hotel! The employees were friendly, although a bit disorganized when it came to payment and charging things to the room (not unusual for Spain.) The pool and beach facilities were great, although you have to pay extra for the sun beds on the beach. A taxi or car rental is needed to get to Marbella center. If you miss breakfast you can't order food until 12:30 when the beach bar opens, but there is an Open Cor supermarket about 5 minutes walk from the hotel so that was convenient. The water slides and kiddie pool looked fun, I would definitely recommend this to families with children, however as students in our early 20's we still had a great time.
Second visit to this Hotel but not our last. We really enjoyed our stays, the food is lovely, and a good choice of drinks especially the Cava my personal favourite. It is very close to bus stops and not too long a walk into San Pedro for the bus station. It is in a quiet area which for us was lovely as we tend to go out all day and enjoy our evenings watching the entertainment or sitting at the Bodega bar chatting with other holiday makers. Rooms are clean and comfortable well worth a visit.
If you want a lively hotel then this is the place of you, majority of people there are with stag and hen parties. Good mixture of ages but not a place for kids in June . Good , clean hotel with very friendly staff, would defo go again !
Stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom duplex apartment. It was massive and very well equiped kitchen had full cooker, fridge freezer, washing machine and a dishwasher. Stayed 4 nights and cleaning and towels changed twice during this time. Some dishwasher tablets and washing machine tablets provided as a started suggest you put a few extra in your suitcase save having to buy some together with a couple of tea towels.
This time of year the pool bar was shut and there is no restaurant on site but that was no issue for us. There were very few people around the pool (very cold water) but weather was fantastic, blue skies for the whole time.
Resort is about a mile from the centre of Puerto Banus and the area is a bit hilly, Iceland and another small supermarket on the other side of the road from Iceland down a slope about 10 minutes walk away where you can buy most things. Water in Iceland very cheap and Supermarket had fresh bread and other pastries for breakfast and you can get things for lunch in both too.
Taxis into resort centre around 7 to 8 Euros max, we used them in the evenings to go to restaurants.
I stayed in this hotel for a girls holiday with my 4 friends and we had a great time. We chose the 3 bedroom apartment which was huge and extremely comfortable with a lovely balcony with sea view. The location was great - close to beach, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, bus stop etc. However, it was further than we had anticipated from Marbella and Puerto Banus which we wanted to visit for the nightlife! Taxis were so expensive and there were no 5 seater ones meaning we always had to get two which was ridiculous and so we resorted to getting the last bus some nights to save money but the nightlife starts getting going about 2am and so it was still so quiet when we got there on the bus at 12am!
