"One excellent night - wish it could have been more"
We only stayed one night as we were visiting our daughter nearby. The room was spacious, clean, well stocked, comfortable beds. The resort its self was also clean, well kept, great location near the beach. The staff were very friendly and attentive - even out of season. Wished we could have stayed longer.

We rented a 2 bed apartment via Expedia/Marriott for a week in April. We were very pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of the apartment(s), by the excellent facilities for our children (6 and 12) and by the very excellent staff service we received. Would recommend to any families looking for an upmarket self catering holiday where you're getting a daily room clean, full onsite services and very high standard of facilities for the children. The whole place is well kept, felt like a high four star bordering on five star resort so a real bargain. We went just before the main Easter holidays so it was also pleasing quiet and relaxing.
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.
They made our stay very comfortable by asking us our opinions about the hotel and if there is anything they can improve on. We asked for a kettle in our room and they provided one in less than 20 minutes with a choice of tea and coffees.
TV fees in the room was good with plenty of choices from films to bbc news.
The cleaning staff were very good and friendly. We got a room upgrade and had lovely sea views. 100 percent grade for this hotel.
Stayed here as a treat for my mother on her birthday. From the moment we arrived we knew it was going to be a great stay. Great welcome and customer service, lovely spacious rooms with amazing views. Superb breakfast - especially nice out on the terrace. Highly recommend and wish we had stayed longer.
Great hotel in a wonderful location, everything you could wish for outside the hotel was a stones throw away.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly and it was a very relaxing place to stay.
My only criticism was that if travelling by road to the hotel, then it was extremely difficult to locate and once you did then the car park was equally difficult to find. The hotel is located in a paved area and is not accessible by road. However, once you have located the car park then a porter comes to your rescue. Very expensive to park your car on a daily basis. Having said that, we had a very nice stay there and will certainly return.

We cannot rave enough about this place. We stayed when looking for a place to send our guests for our wedding and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We loved the style of the hotel, the location, the service - everything really and would highly recommend it to anyone.
