    The beach is somewhat dirty and does not have beautiful sand. However, this didn't affect our stay as we had plenty of other things to enjoy on the resort other than the beach.

    Hotel set up as a resort with kids' club (the ladies at the club were very nice, multi-language speaking and entertaining for the kids), mini golf course, tennis court, basketball court, ping pong tables, etc. The pool bar/snack is good enough for lunch, we did not eat at the restaurant at night. We had a 3 bedrooms apartment which was great with our 3 kids. It was clean and comfortable. The market onsite is quite useful when one arrives for basic groceries for the stay. However, there is a bigger supermarket only 2 minutes by car for longer stay periods. We would go back should we decide to travel back to that area.

    The beach was not attractive and the internet service was fair. We kept having to sign on to the wifi repeatedly.

    Beautiful, well landscaped resort in an excellent location with easy access to all amenities including all of the tourist sites we wanted to see; Granada, Seville, Ronda, Cordoba, Miha, Nerja and others.

    Unfortunately the surrounding area is poor . No where nice to walk to in the evening and no atmosphere outside hotel . Apart from Campanini restaurant nearby couldn't find anywhere else to eat . The only restaurant in the Marriott is not marvellous and very expensive . Even the French fries were of poor quality . Staff in there lovely ! Food lets it down it would be nice to have a more superior restaurant in complex for choice .

    Staff were lovely . Apartments brilliant !

    On site restaurant was ok, if a little expensive but this is a minor gripe and is what I would expect from an on site restaurant

    Excellent facilities - lovely 3 pools and liked how there was a kids one, activity one and quieter one Kids club was fab - staff very friendly and daughter was immediately at ease. Very clean rooms and other facilities excellent Some good restaurants in walking distance

    Hard to get around without a car, a bit remote location off of hwy. Not many dining options, one restaurant on site, anything else you'd need to drive to. We were there in March so the outdoor pool, though pretty, wasn't really an option for us. Indoor pool was good though, had a hot tub so you can warm up. It's a bit of a retirement community destination, though there were a few families with small kids. Felt a little dead but still relaxing. I'm not sure if the kids club was active as I didn't see anyone there when we went by. Restaurant was good, but ready for a change after 3 days.

    Washer and Dryer were an awesome feature, fully functional kitchen, very comfortable apartment with good beds.

    We stayed on a Fri/Sat during low season - which is great to miss the crowds, but the bar/cafe has limited hours on Sat (opens only from 4pm). Otherwise a great holiday spot!

    The staff were very welcoming and provided great advice and tips on everything in the region, even recommending where to park our car in Marbella city centre... Then onto tapas eateries which did not disappoint. Go for the continental brekky at the Marketplace - €5.50 for coffee, pastry, cereal, piece of fruit AND 500ml fresh squeezed orange juice - global leaders for a snack brekky!
