Visit of Marbella and Torremolinos for a day

A travel blog entry by stefanoandrea


... breakfast with them and after breakfast we got our stuff together and got the caravan ready to leave. We all pushed it out by hand together because of the slope and difficult access and that was funny to see ! We got it hooked up and ready and than we hugged and kissed each other goodbye and thanked them for their kindness to receive us as they did. We would try to come back with my mother for a couple of days in springtime. Than we got in the car ...

Ronda to Seville

... doesn't leave until 5:30pm. Weather still delightful - about 25 degrees. Train trip was very pleasant - 2nd class seats but very comfortable and clean. A great way to see the countryside. Again there were miles and miles of olive trees, and we have had some delicious olive oil in Spain, as you would expect. Needless to say there ...

Sinfully delightful day on the beach!

... strange – his friends and the shop assistant guided him through the lengthy process with animated discussion while we tried to look the other way.

That evening we were determined to have the huge meat kebabs that the 'chiringuitos' barbequed to perfection! Our restaurant was right on the beach – beautiful setting, beautiful weather!


Packing up and thank you!

We measured the water level and it needed ...

The ghost ship

... to him that it’s time to move along. He wanders off a few metres and finally the ‘helper’ at the bus-stop yells at him in Arabic and he shuffles off towards the cafes.

When the bus finally arrives, our helper insists on taking Bryony’s bag the three metres to the bus’s luggage bin – then sticks out the hand (of course). I slip him a dirham and he wanders off. I immediately regret giving him only one as he did help ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott's Playa Andaluza Estepona

    Fantastic Resort Espcially for Familys


    I would like to start off by saying the reveiw from october 2005 has completey changed the rooms are like suites and its is perfect for kids! there are 4 swimming pools, 3 outside and 1 inside. The beach is romantic at night with the sunset on the horizon.



    We're 70+ and stayed a week with two college friends in May, 2006. You need a car, but we rented a relatively inexpensive one from Hertz at the Malaga airport -- a manual Diesel Peugeot that got about 50 mpg, nice at the price of fuel these days. Our 2-bedroom villa was on 4th floor, with lovely views of the sea and the grounds from the balcony and master bedroom. With temperatures in the 70s, the balcony was a favorite spot for eating and conversation. Furnishings were tastefully done. Beds very comfortable. Kitchen adequate for what little cooking we did. Breakfasts on the balcony were memorable with wonderfully fresh croissants and warm rolls available from the Marriott Market at 8:00 a.m. each morning -- and at reasonable prices. The beach is rocky, but the outdoor and indoor pools are fine. The restaurant was the most disappointing feature. Lunches only were available, with the "real" one is still a year away we were told. However, we were more interested in trying out restaurants in other towns as we did our sightseeing. The very pleasant, welcoming staff is most helpful in recommending places to eat and to visit. Rooms are cleaned every day. Construction was going on but we were not aware of it at least in our building. We'd recommend this facility to any of our friends. It's a convenient, comfortable take-off point for getting around Andalucia.

    Top Marriott Resort


    One of two Marriott resorts in Andulacia area. This is the newer of the two and is in a different style. There is still some construction work going on, but we never heard a thing from it. Whether it was halted for the summer or not, I'm not sure but all was quiet. They even cover the construction in green cloth to make it look better!

    Much better than the USA resort


    Having just visited the Marriott Ocean Pointe in Florida the Playa Andaluza is a million miles away in style and amenities. We visited with our young grandson (9 months) and would say it is ideal for young families, the staff pre- arranged car seats, high chairs and cots without a hitch and the overall impression is one of quality and efficiency due to the design of the resort and the quality of the ever smiling staff. Of course there is some building (it is Southern Spain - but have you been to Dubai!) however it is of minimal impact and we were accommodated as far away from noise as possible. The apartments are well furnished equipped with all facilities and we found the 'order in food' to be of reasonable quality and very convenient.

    Lovely Place


    spent three nights here in the first week of april.

    excellent apartment (2 bed), fantastic service. we went there on a promo trip for special rates. we were warned there was ongoing construction and were also reassured there would be minimal disturbance. however we complained about some noise and they apologised profusely and gave us a restaurant voucher for 75 euros! the pool is quiet both indoor and outdoor, the beach is a bit ragged but quiet and has a nice bar/restaurant.

    not the best place for a teenager as part of a family. not much to do. little kids have a good time it seems.

    would definitely go there agaun, perhaps wait until it is completed.

    Mixed Feelings


    We have just returned from 5 days at Marriot Playa Andaluza Spain. Overall the resort is lovely. We were in a two bedroomed apartment with two ensuites and lovely balcony and the standard of the accomodation was very good. The indoor and outdoor pools were clean, beautiful and not over crowded. Beach is man made and I agree would be difficult to paddle in due to rocks at waters edge, but nice for sunbathing. Shop had just been extended and had coffee facilities with outdoor tables and chairs. Nice games rooms. Excellent kids club catered well for 5 year old girl and 10 year old boy who were very happy to attend. Spa and gym looked lovely though didn't try them personally.All staff friendly and helpful.

    Luxury Personified


    What a beautiful resort, the complex when it is finished in 2009 will be out of this world! We stayed in a 2 bed apartment in the Granada block and we were amazed by the size of the rooms and how luxurious they were. The rooms were huge, two large bedrooms. The master bedroom had a separate bathroom containing a double bath with shower, two basins etc. Through the bathroom led you to a huge double shower, toilet and bidet. The second bedroom also had its own bathroom with shower. Both bedrooms had a full size TV with plenty of choice in terms of channels and they even had CBBC and Cbeebies which the kids loved.



    Overall we were very disappointed with this half built resort. It has now been under construction for almost three years and is still only half finished. The whole area is one massive building site. Reception id still in one of the apartment blocks and the entrance to the site is in a side road.

    Marriott's Playa Andaluza in Estepona


    Stayed at Playa Andaluza for nine nights from September 30-October 9th 2005. Traded our lock-off option so we ended up with a lock off unit. They are very, very small compared to the ones in the States and in Aruba. Adequate, but small if you are staying for a week or longer. The two bedrooms timeshare units are lovely. Not as large as in most Marriotts but very nice. I would never stay in the lock off part again. The facility itself is typical Marriott. Very clean, beautiful pool, nice landscaping etc... The outdoor pool is large with a lot of pool chairs and was never crowded during our stay. There was some topless tanning going on as this is a very European resort. The beach sand is nice but the area to enter the water (Mediterranean Sea) is very rocky. You really couldn't go into the water bare footed. The beach bar/restaurant had some good food, average to above average prices. The Market in the lobby had pretty much anything you would need but was very costly. We went to the local grocery store and got the exact same things at one third the cost of what Marriott charges but it was convenient to have the ability to buy on site. The parking was free, there were a few restaurants you could walk to but not really any grocery stores. Definitely needed to rent a car. Went to the Estepona flea market on Thursday morning and that was very good. Tons of locals selling stuff. Lots of little towns within one hour driving distance that were charming and full of good shopping and eating. Went to Gibralter for the day and was glad we did. It was worth seeing. The monkeys are little devils that steal anything they can grab.



    W've never been in such a beautiful resort. The inside swimming pool is amazing. The location at the beach lovely. We had a 2 bedroom app. with 4 kids. Very luxury. The only point is that you need a car to travel to cities, shops and restaurants.
