Historical Traveller Reviews of Marriott Marbella Beach Resort Hotel
Great apartment, but beach and dining not up to much!from A TripAdvisor Member
We took both a two bedroom and a one bedroom apartment and both were beautiful, really well equipped, very clean and comfortable and I'd recommend them to anyone looking for an apartment holiday in the area if they are prepared to travel to get to any of the "sights" as none are really near by.
Have to say that for the difference in price (only 25 euros per night) I'd opt for the larger, more visually impressive two bedroom two bathroom apartment even if I were returning just as a couple.
The master bedroom in the two bedroom apartment has an open plan ensuite bathroom which is fantastic and is better laid out and feels more luxurious than in the one bedroom apartment (which is not on open plan to the bedroom, presumably because this might be used by additional guests if they were using the sofabed) the second bathroom in the two bedroom apartment has a massive full room depth shower - wonderful!
On arrival (with two toddlers and someone with difficulty walking) we were disappointed that this 5* resort did not have porters - but the receptionist was great and offered to help us with the luggage.
We'd arranged a private car transfer from the airport to the resort but I'd recommend hiring a car as the entire resort is built over a (completely hidden) underground carpark meaning you can easily take your luggage from the car up into the lift next to your particular apartment. For those without a car though, it is easy to get taxis and it is possible for taxis to pick you up next to your lift in the underground carpark if you have difficulty getting up to the main entrance.
The hotel's restaurant is definitly not worth going to - slow (though friendly) service and dreadful food. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby and we'd recommend the excellent Chez Michel and La Hacienda which are both only a 5 - 10 minute drive away instead. (For those prepared to travel 15 minutes and splash out 60 euros p h for a special treat, the ultra deluxe Marbella Club Hotel's Beach Club does an absolutely fantastic ongoing buffet lunch by their beautiful pool and beach from 1.30 to 4.30 and you can stay there using their facilities for as long as you wish...we didn't want to leave but eventually did at 7pm!
Overall, great apartments, lovely swimming pools (though the outdoor ones are icy cold!) small grocery store but it does stock most of what you'd need, poor beach and very poor restaurant on site - but with your own apartment kitchen and some great restaurants near by we'd say that this isn't a huge issue.
Highlight of our trip, will definitely stay there againfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Loved the Marriott Marbella Resort!from mlschless
The staff was friendly and attentive. The unit was spotless and well-appointed. Any needs or requests that we had were filled almost immediately, and we received a follow-up call to ensure things were done to our satisfaction.
All the pools were well-kept and clean, and the grounds were beautifully manicured. We only ate at one of their restaurants - Restaurant El Mediterraneo - which served us a fabulous meal!
I highly recommend this resort! We will stay here again if we ever go back to Marbella!
Loved the Gorgeous Marriott Marbella Beach Resort!from jml
If you want to venture into town, the hotel will coordinate a number of excursions for you, or, you can simply take a 10 minute cab ride into the town of Marbella for tapas/sangria/etc.
We don't have children - but, there were plenty of families there and it seems to be a very kid-friendly resort.
We would love to return - highly recommended!
Very Nice Stayfrom beansy
s Marbella just one complaintfrom amandahig
Really nice!from QuiltingBee
Marbled floored Marriott in Marbella is marvellousfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Restaurant Closedfrom loveItalyvisitor
There are a few small restaurants nearby - mainly with limited menus, also some of these are closed. To find a good quality restaurant with a wider choice you need to travel by car or taxi - not something we wished to do every evening.
