Historical Traveler Reviews Marbella Playa Hotel
The hotel catered mainly for spanish, french and german clients. Had we known that the evening entertainment was in spanish we would not have gone.
Overall a nice hotel
Generally a positive experience. The rooms are nice with two double beds, a good sized terrace and a huge bathroom. Everywhere is well kept and clean, the gardens in particular are beautiful. The hotel is situated on a very pleasant beach and has a good swimming pool and outdoor jacuzzi. Previous reviews have complained that the hotel is a long way out from Marbella, it is but I think this is a good thing as Marbella is a concrete jungle, there is a free shuttle bus should you wish to venture in. The food is of good quality. however the dining room is very noisey and busy and you have to share tables. The organisation and service in the bar and restuarant is poor. Entertainment is OK, the flamengo night is excellent but the nights with the animation team are very amatuer. There are not many english people at this hotel, mainly dutch and german. Overall I would say it is worth a visit.
Hotel très agréable en bord de mer avec piscine chauffée et des navettes pour Marbella.La cuisine est excellente. Le climat généralement doux. Une façon agréable d'attendre le printemps pour des Belges frileux.
Mein Mann, meine Tochter und ich haben eine klasse Woche im Marbella Playa verbracht. Das Essen war ausgezeichnet, die Unterhaltung für meine Tochter toll; sie hat den ganzen Abend bis Mitternacht durchgetanzt (sie ist 3!!!). Das Hotel liegt direkt am Strand, klasses Hallen- und Außenbecken. Würde es allen Familien oder Paaren empfehlen (außerhalb der Saison, da es während der Sommerferien sehr laut werden könnte). Täglich kostenloser Shuttlebus-Service ins Zentrum von Marbella, saubere Zimmer. Ganz einfach ein tolles Hotel und wir wünschten, wir hätten länger als eine Woche bleiben können.
Meinem Mann und mir hat der Aufenthalt im Hotel sehr gut gefallen. Schönes Restaurant, große Zimmer (Dorf), extrem freundliches Personal. Es liegt ca. 6 km von der Stadt entfernt, darum ist es nachts ruhig. Eigener Strand, viele Palmen um den Pool herum. Schöner Fitnessraum. Ein Muss !
my husband & I had a great staying at the hotel.
Fine restaurant, big rooms (village), extremely friendly staff.
It's about 6 km from the city, hence quied at night.
Own beach, a lot of palmtrees arround the pools.
a must !
My husband, daughter and I had a great week at the Marbella Playa. The food was excellent, the entertainment was great for my daughter who danced the night away til midnight (age 3!!!). The hotel is right on the beach, great indoor and outdoor pool. Would recommend any family or couple (out of season as could get very noisey in the summer holidays). Free shuttle bus into Marbella town daily, clean rooms. Just a great place and wish we stayed longer than a week.
a lovely hotel with excellent facillities. spotlessly clean,and helpful staff. situated close to the beach,where you can enjoy late continental breakfast between 10am.-12 the restaurant,can be busy and noisy,the staff work hard to clear tables,and restock the food,of which there is plenty to choose from,however unless you had it freshly cooked on the grill,was not very hot.There is a microwave if you want to use it.The grounds are well kept,and looks tropical with lots of trees,flowers and shrubs.At night areas are lit up with lights on trees etc,and the overall effect was very pretty.It is a fair way from nightlife of any kind,so if you are looking for "party" type of holiday unless you drive,it is not for you.There is entertainment in the hotel,which to be fair varied from not bad to pretty bad. Children have mini disco at 9pm. for about 15 minutes every night,so as its the same music,can be a bit boring.All ages of people stayed,including some very frail elderly people,and there quite a steep wooden ramp to get onto the beach.We tried the local buses,which were cheap,and came fairly often,and there is a courtesy bus hourly,into Marbella.We did have a nice time,but do prefer more choice to go out at night
Not fun at all
The hotel is beautiful, but the thing is, very far away from the fun stuff, and the entretaiment staff is very, very unprofesional and boring!!!yes it has a bus stop 400.mt ,since the hotel is close to a very importan avenue you have to go thru a brigde and walk a lot, it has abus going to the center, but again it only goes a certain hours, so is hard to keep up, the restaurant are ok, a lot a sea food, but believe me they are very rude, the staff is not friendly at all, and if you want to go to the beach that is right behind the hotel, be ready and bring money cause they charge you 4 euros per chair w/umbrella, I did have ok vacation but I will not go back to this hotel, maybe in torremolino area or puerto banus. good luck. august 2004
Nice week in Marbella Playa
Everything was almost perfect in this hotel, due to the fact that food is excellent and well cooked; just some concern appears with the grill since you'll have from time to time to queue up, even if the cookers are doing their best switching from the grill to the pasta, the vegetables or the pancakes. Junior suites are comfortable and you'll profit by a nice view over the sea. Some reservations may be done with the enjoyment for nights due to the fact that the inner room is somewhat unadequate and probably the entertainment must be reworked and improved. A nice and balanced week anyway.

... taxi to our independent housing apartment. He dropped us off on the street and said he could not find the exact address. So we walked around the plaza with our luggage in search of Calle Puerto Parejo 21. We could not find it, no matter how many circles we walked in. I actually turned on my data to call the landlord and he didn't answer. So I'm sure at this point you can imagine we were a little worried this place didn't exist at ...
... today as we sat on a lovely patio and watched the world go by. After an afternoon of lounging by the pool (a little too cold to go in for a dip after a storm system came through two nights ago), someone else made dinner for us, too. That was as exciting as things got today and we were good with that. Tomorrow we begin our journey ...
... of one of these. Ronda is built on a high, very high cliff face, but there is a gorge or ravine between the two parts of town. This gorge is only 40-50metres across at the highest point, and a little narrower in a few other places where the peoples of centuries past have decreed that they need access across the ravine. Ronda is where we stayed and after checking in, we walked around the old part of town and then across the three bridges. The Romans built the first ...
... and body slammed his way in--graceful as usual.
After a quick shower, Skype sessions with a handful of brothers and other friends, we pushed the couches together and all curled up to watch When a Stranger Calls. About 5 minutes into the movie all 9 of us (minus Peter and Divya) had passed out in a pile on the couches and didn't make our way to our beds until about 5 or 6 am.
I never want to forget this night.
No DVD tonight as it was way past bedtime when we got back. Poor old Rob must have been all worn out with the excitement - he went off to sleep almost immediately!

We had our first cuppa whilst still in bed then breakfast in the awning. By the look of the sky it promises to be a lovely sun-shiny day.
We had a shower each, a tidy up and then tackled a bit of ...
