Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Sultan Club Marbella
My wife and I stayed at the Sultan Club in June 2004. Having stayed at excellent "timeshare"apartments globally, we found the Sultan Club room to be of a basic / average condition. However, we had a top floor apartment with excellent balcony. A spruce up would help.
The ground and lower floor facilities were excellent as was the attached restaurant. As our balcony got the sun all day, we weren't concerned about the shaded pool area (although the area itself was lovely).
The location is very good. Close to the beach and resort centre.
Marbella as a holiday destination is fantastic. Great beach, bars and restaurants.
We will definately go back.
Loved the hotel/apartment
We, a family of four (2 teenagers) stayed here in June, 2004 and had a brilliant time. The apartment was huge ( 2-bedroomed). Amenities were fantastic - Kitchen = washing-machine, dishwasher, full electric cooker; lots of cupboard space.
2 televisions; 2 full bathrooms; A hairdryer in each bathroom; massive verandas on two levels; 4 sunbeds.
The view from the apartments was breath-taking.
It was expensive for 4 adults to eat out all the time, so we cooked dinner some of the time.
There is a great choice of restaurants in the area.
The hotel is brilliantly located in a very good and new part of Marbella, only a few metres from the beach area. The beaches are so clean - in fact everywhere is spotless and all paths and walkways are composed of marble.
The greatest aspect of Marbella, especially for teenage girls, would be the designer shops - La Canada, El Corte Ingles, Bershka, Cortefiel, Zara.
I would definitely recommend Marbella and the Sultan Club- a wonderful experience.
Okay but nothing special
Apartments themselves were good size and great location. Alright to use as a base but not somewhere you'd want to be spending a lot of time.
Furnishings a little tatty and kitchen equipment not great.
Outdoor pool and sun bathing area were far too small and in the shade most of the day. Indoor pool was good though.
Can't believe comments here about the staff. We found reception staff utterly unwelcoming, unfriendly and ignorant. I guess it could be different staff this year. On the other hand the bar and cleaning staff were all friendly.
We were myself, my wife and 21 month old sun and apartments weren't great for kids. Nothing going on fo them.
Enjoyed the appartments but not Marbella
We spent a week in the Sultan Appartments in Marbella.
We enjoyed our stay at the appartments. The complex is very central, close to both beach and shopping. It is very well maintained, the rooms are generous in size and are spotlessly clean. The hotel has two very good restaurants, (One formal and the other more casual) both offered good value for money. Staff are both friendly and helpful.
Marbella itself is over commercialised, it is sadly lacking culture.
Marbella is perfect for anyone who fits in to the following categories; a) retired, b) a golfer, or c) a designer shopper.
Overall, we were disappointed with our holiday.
Marbella is marketed as the St. Tropez of Spain. However, St. Tropez it isn't !!!!
Very impressed wih Sultan Club
Myself and my partner visited the Sultan Club in Oct. 2003 and were very happy we did. On the way from Malaga airport we had to drop other visitors off from our coach to different appartments. When we saw some of the so called 3 star appartments we were quite horrified and glad we were'nt staying there. We were very relieved when we arrived at The 4star Sultan club. Our room was large with a pleasent sitting area and very well equiped kitchen(dishwasher,washing machine etc). The floors were all marble and the bedroom was large and very comfortable. They balcony was huge and the pool was beautiful,albeit a bit shaded fom the sun at times.The hotel has a great location and we loved it. Will definitly return someday.
We enjoyed our 2 week stay at sultan club its location is excellent close to the beach, Shops & Transport. The staff where very helpful with the exception of one or two who where just rude. The pool facilities where very nice and the rooms where very tidy and well equiped.
Liked the Sultan hotel apartments, but not crazy about Marbella
Sultan Club Hotel was a beautiful place to stay in an overly built up tourist resort. Marbella wasn't our kind of place when all you meet are Brits an Germans and other tourists. We wanted to learn more about history and old architecture. August isn't the time to do that because you need to stay on the coast for some relief from the sweltering heat.
Loved Sultan Club Hotel
The Sultan Club Hotel was situated on a very exclusive area within walking distance for the beach and centre. The facilities where excellent and service was excellent. The only area which I was disappointed was the pool. It was a very small area, shaded and very deep and very slippery. I had 3 year old twins with me. My advise is to bring life jackets for small kids for safety. The pool restaurant was not open till the end of June but with pressure from guests they opened it early. There is very little facilities for children but they still enjoyed the hotel.
Extremely large well maintained accommodation. Very close to the beach and restaurants but in a very quite location - no noisy bars in vicinity. Have recommended it to many people and I look forward to a return visit in the future.
We visited the Sultan Club in 2001 and were disappointed. The rooms were OK; we had to change rooms half way through our holiday due to the air-conditioning breaking. The pool area is far too small with not enough sunloungers or room. In fact half of the sunloungers around the pool are in shade for most of the day. The hotel is well situated, and you are able to walk into the centre of Marbella easily. In my opinion it wasn't worth the money!

... both in and out on our journey so far.
Picked up a local paper at this campsite, very interesting indeed. First thing of note was the write up about the storm earlier in the week, which was apparently the worst they’d had in 20 years. There was a picture of a Beach Bar in Torre del Mar which we walked past whilst they were cleaning up, Penny commented as there were girls in shorts and ...
Apologies it seems that the previous entry is actually not John but a 6’ 5” professional swimmer. Easy mistake.
We know he was a pro as he conducted a two hour training session for 2 triathletes on the beach and in the sea directly in front of the sunbeds that Sue J and I were lounging on ( she was over for a couple of nights last week). It was most irritating but we felt obliged to watch them. The ...
... in the sea and playing on the beach. First time we have seen beach activity since our arrival. Tony, Kate and Chris stuck their foot in and thought the water may be warmer than our pool! We continued walking to the Old Town, where there were many shopping and catching the sights. To see this old part of a town, kept up and so pretty in the middle of modern surroundings is really nice. We returned to the car to head out to lunch at the opposite end of the ...
... s grandson once lived here. It is a very cool old house, but in a sad state of disrepair. From the scenic gardens you enter the mines--280 slick, dark narrow stairs that the Moors cut into the side of the gorge so that they could access water when they were under siege. They also used chains of Spanish slaves to haul water up the cliff--"skin jugs". After a quick trip to the bottom and back up we accessed the old lower city gate and crossed the low smaller bridge into ...
... a moment’s hesitation but they hustled out in the rain, and came back a little while later having negotiated a double room and an extra bed, and it was within our budget. They had done it all in Spanish – I was so proud!
I don’t remember what we ate for dinner that night, but it might have been one of the nights that happened once or twice during the trip, when we found ourselves without a hotel restaurant and not much willingness ...
