    Historical Traveler Reviews Vasari Vacation Resort Marbella

    Wonderful Holiday At Vasari

    from

    We just returned from a week at the Vasari Resort in Marbella / Puerto Banus and it was fantastic! This was my wife's first visit to Europe and she was a little bit apprehensive about whether European standards for "five-star" resorts would provide us with the same kinds of amenities we're used to when travelling in North America.

    She need not have worried. The Vasari is a five-star property by any definition. The grounds and facilities are first-rate. Our apartment was a lovely 3-bedroom unit overlooking the pools, with satellite television and a fireplace. The 3-BR units are quite spacious, and feature fully equipped kitchens with modern Bosch appliances, all-marble bathrooms (with heated marble floors!) and three terraces overlooking the central pool area. One of the terraces has an outdoor dining set on it, perfect for breakfast or a late evening drink.

    The spa is fantastic - don't miss it! Our dinners at the Italian-themed Vasari restaurant were always memorable, and the staff were just wonderful. One tip - we booked a first-floor unit overlooking the pool, and that's what we were given. However, in Europe, the "first floor" is one floor up from "ground floor" (what we'd call the second floor in Canada), so our unit didn't provide us with direct access to the pool decks, as we'd expected. Our mistake.

    We loved the Vasari so much we've been recommending it to friends and family, and are planning to go there again. Spain is always a great place to holiday. The climate and scenery are wonderful, and the people are so lovely and friendly. The Vasari resort was the icing on the cake for us.

    Very Very Good

    from

    SIMPLY AMAZING! Reserved a week of hollidays on April with MARBELLA OPTIONS, in Vasari Resort. After seeing some reviews here, i decided to do it. When i arrived there, i was really surprised with the apartment. First i thought it was only a bedroom with bathroom, but then it was a complete apartment with kitchen, living-room, bedroom, and good bathroom with jacuzzi. Everything well cleaned and in good conditions, resort very good. Walking to the center of puerto banus is 10 minuts walking. By car it is difficult to find a place for parking. Driving to Marbella Center is 5 minuts. Right in front of the resort there is a good supermarket with almost everything. Restaurants in Marbella and Puerto Banus are not cheap, so i advise you to cook your own meals in the apartment. I also recommend a day passed in Morroc. You can drive into TARIFA (1 hour from Puerto Banus) and then get a ferry-boat into TANGER, leaving your car in TARIFA. Very interesting city, don't be afraid to go with a tourist guide when arriving TANGER, they are nice people. Hope you enjoy your trip and hope i've helped you out choosing your hollidays =)

    Total Relaxation...loved it!!

    from

    My partner and I stayed at Vasari for a four night break over Easter 2006. We booked a one-bed apartment through Marbella Options and were delighted with the size, amenities and cleanliness of the accommodation. I have stayed in many so-called 5* hotels, but this is among the best. It is a lovely quiet resort within 10 minutes walk of the El Corte Ingles store followed within another 5 minutes by the harbour and main restaurants. We could not fault this apartment. It was extremely spacious and the fact it was serviced daily ( clean towels, beds made, floors cleaned) added to the deluxe nature. The 50+ apartments are split into blocks of 9 or ten and you can park your car under your block and take a lift up to outside your apartment door! The reception staff were friendly although due to the excellent weather we did not take advantage of the gym and indoor pool etc. We will definately be returning in the autumn for another short sunshine break and would recommend to couples and families alike.

    Highly Recommended

    from

    Vasari Spa and Resort is well worth the visit. We booked after reading the reviews in Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed, in fact the resort is exactly what we expected. We booked a two bedroom Penthouse and it was fab. Loads of space, tastefully decorated and very well equipped with everything you could need. It felt very peaceful around the pool, with plenty of shade for those shy of the sun. Our two boys (10 & 15), loved the spacious pool. The Resort reception is a very short amble away and there are some facilities there for the kids. The Paddle Tennis is chargeable though, at 20 Euros for the court.

    The Vasari restaurant is very good and has a great wine list. Can also recommend a fantastic Italian restaurant on the harbour front, Puerto Banus, "Picasso" - get there early as people queue to get in.

    Would recommend and will most definitely be going back to the Vasari resort.

    Vasari is Top Class

    from

    My husband & I have just come back from a four day break at the Vasari. The one bedroom self catering apartment that we stayed in was excellent. It was a home from home.

    The apartment was cleaned daily, with towels changed every other day. My husband was happy with the satelite TV as it meant he didn't miss watching his team play.

    The overall resort is beautifully done. Its a little bit quite for the time we were there, as the season hasn't got started. So we had the pool to ours during our entire stay.

    The resort is a good 15 mins walk from the centre of P.Banus. The walk into Banus is fine, but you do have to cross a busy road.

    We booked our stay with marbella options and they were excellent too, they arranged private transfer from Malaga airpot to the resort, which was great.

    ....and gone to heaven

    from

    Wow what a place!

    We found this place through ---- and we had the only 3 bed ground floor, right in front of the pool. We had a fantastic view of the gardens whilst having eats on the magnificent terrace. We hardly needed to go out it was so good!

    Good value

    from

    Well I did my home work but was very suprised at how good the Vasari was.

    The accomadation was very clean and had plenty of space for 2 people it was so nice to be able to eat out but also have breakfat or lunch on your patio for the same price as you would pay for a hotel.

    The restaurant I must say had the most wonderful setting facing the flood lit pool on a night time, we had lunch and evening meal, and I have to admit it was the best meals we had in the whole resort.

    The Pool area was very well kept and very quiet.

    The staff were very helpful and pleasent

    Will deffinatly be staying again

    5 star all the way at vasari

    from

    Hi.Myself and my wife had what only can be described as the most wonderfull four day short break at the vasari resort just outside Puerto Banus.from the moment of our arrival at 11 30 pm approx ,well what can i say,you just new you had made the right choice.reception was waiting to check us in and promptly had our bags delivered to our room in the complex almost before we got there which with the friendly help of the conseige was only moments.The complex is stunning by night and by day.Our appt was nothing short of superb with every comfort and more that you could expect in five star.After a night in Puerto banus the next day by the pool was just the place to be to relax with a waiter there to look after us but not pushy in any way.the whole concept of the vasari makes you feel safe,secure and at the same time your privacy is respected at all times.

    The appts were superb in every way from kitchen to bathroom{fabulous}it was more like a luxury pad you would buy rather than holiday accomodatoin. The cleanliness was to say the least unrivelled by anywhere i have ever stayed and when our appt was cleaned during our stay you reallised why,no quick dust round here.Every nook and cranny was gone into and the place was left as though you had just arrived. The prices were not cheep around the pool but thats fair of somewhere of this standard and nothing more than you woud expect.Iwould say for the level of service we received well worth a few euros extra. Vasari is in a good location with a taxi depending on time of day from 4 to 7 euro to the center of Puerto Banus or you can take the stroll in about twenty minutes.Not the nicest of walks but not the worst either.Marbella old town an 8 eoro taxi ride away by day and a little more at night ,is a romantic and beutifull experience for a meal with the whole place oosing with atmosphere,{well worth doing at least one evening depending on the lenght of your stay}.The beaches in that area are nothing to right home about but if its people watching and style you want then look no further.Bentlys ,yaughts,gucci,armani and the rest are the norm here.One tip if you do decide to visit ,buy your euros before you go as the exchanges give a very poor rate of exchange.Happy hols and hope this review will be helpfull to anyone thinking of paying a visit to Peurto Banus or Marbella.

    Fantastic Vasari Resort

    from

    Just returned from the Vasari Resort after a week with my girlfriend. Fantastic place.

    The service of the 24hr reception and the concierge service was second to none.

    The resort is made up of 57 one, two and three bedroomed apartments. All are fully equipped with all you would need. Great bathrooms with jacuzzi baths, massive balconies and well decorated and clean accomodation. The gardens are lush and very well tended.

    The reception, restaurant and gym facilities are located two minutes down the road from the rooms. I cannot fault any aspect of the resort. It was brilliant.

    Drinks at poolside can be quite costly 1.80 for a can of Sprite. I would recommend a trip to the local store which is just outside the complex and across the road (Opencor). About five minutes walk. Stock up on cold drinks and beers etc. It'll save a lot of money for those nights out to Puerto banus.

    Talking of nights out its worth eating out and the choice is amazing. We ate out most nights and the best restaurants we experienced were Jaipur Pink -Indian and Pravda - world cuisine. Both can be found at the port. For drinks then I would recommend The News Cafe and the Mumbai Bar.

    The shopping experience is great also with a wealth of designer boutiques and one off shops all stretched out along the marina.

    In all a place to experience and well worth the money. We shall definitely be staying at the Vasari again at Christmas and cannot wait.

    Vasari - an oasis!

    from

    After so much time gaining advice and tips from this web-site before embarking on our holiday in Costa del Sol, it is now my turn to offer our feedback for the benefit of others!

    When we booked into the Vasari Resort in Puerto Banus, there were no reviews here for me to read (we understand the holiday complex is barely a year old) so had to hope we would not be disappointed. It was, in fact, absolutely excellent, with apts. fitted to very high standards with very lovely landscaped patios and gardens - palm trees, hibiscus etc. (Our 1 bedroom apt. had two full size patio doors - one off the bedroom and one off the living area.) Our patio on the ground floor was not over-looked. Overall, a soothing, peaceful oasis. The pool area is somewhat central and forefront within the complex but it works beautifully. It is referred to as a 'gated resort', with a 24hr consierge on duty. Security is taken very seriously but discreetly. All staff we encountered were friendly and very courteous. Highly reccommended by us and only a 10-15 minute walk into Puerto Banus itself, while just outside the main gate, there is a convenience store for supplies.

    As for Puerto Banus itself, reports of it being expensive are true - at least for the shops! Could not afford to buy clothes there but the restaurants, although not cheap, were excellent and no more than we would expect to pay at home for a good quality meal. No doubt about it, there is a buzz about the place. We had been warned to keep eyes open for celeb spotting and did actually find Wayne Sleep having a cocktail at the table next to us in the beach bar! Even if you aren't into people watching, there was quite a bit of doggy walking in the evening - jewelled collars and all!

    From our base in Puerto Banus we drove to Gibraltar for the day and although the historical side was very interesting, we were a little disappointed in the famed shopping available. We saw mainly boos and tobacco shops, along with tacky cotton clothing and not much else. We did however spend out on the guided 'Tour of the Rock' with driver and van and although not cheap it did mean we got to see much much more than if we had made our own way. The caves, seige tunnel and monkeys were worth it!

    We took another day trip up to Rhonda. Although the road winds this way and that, all the way up, it is manageable. If you enjoy mountains, you will feel it worth the drive. We found Rhonda itself a little grubby, but it was a hot day, so we probably felt that way anyway.

    The final part of our trip was on to a few days in Nerja. We stayed at the Parador and found it fine, (great power-shower, by the way) although there was a little confusion over the breakfast i.e. not included in the quote, but presumed to be consumed and added on top once checked in. We rolled with it though, and the breakfast selection was exceptional. If you are in the mood for the 'hot food' the trick is to arrive while the bacon, eggs and sausages are still warm! Sitting out on the patio to dine overlooking the sea is beautiful but keep your eyes open for the plentiful little sparrows who boldly hop down for crumbs - sometimes onto the table itself!

    Eating out in Nerja was interesting because we had made our list of reccommendations from reviews on this web-site. We can vouch for New Orleans (not far from the Parador) if you are in the mood for a touch of cajun. Go early or it might be full, otherwise book. Same applies to another gem - Scarletta's, again in the old town. Truly excellent meals at both of these and funnily enough, neither restaurants are run by Spanish people. (In our case, although we would normally opt for Spanish food in Spain, we are more concerned about 'good' food and a change is always good). Los Mariscos was a disappointment, although not at all expensive.

    In closing, a final comment about reading these reviews. (From someone who relied heavily on them when making serious holiday decisions). Take some comments with a 'pinch of salt' - everyone is different and what might upset one person is 'water off a duck's back for another'. Look for repeated comments, similar interpretations etc. I have to chuckle when I had read that getting away from Malaga airport was easy and you couldn't get lost...well we still managed to end up going the wrong way on the motorway! Good Holiday!

    Next I drove to Ronda, where there is a famous 'new bridge', built in 1784, and the town sits both sides of a deep gorge. The campsite was about 15 mins walk from the town, the only thing i didn't like about it was that it was on a very slight slope, enough though that i felt i had to fight rolling to one side of my van in my sleep, making for rather disturbed ...

    One afternoon at lunch we ordered some Gazpacho Soup and grilled Sardines at a nice beach side restaurant. It had been exactly three years to the day that Bill had passed. We were talking about him when that song came on again over the speakers of the restaurant.. "My Way"! Cheers Dad!
