Best for Families - Expert review of Marriott's Marbella Beach Resort

Large, well-positioned Marbella beach resort, that delivers more than you'd expect.

Some of the biggest problems you’ll face here is which pool to have a dip in or which restaurant to eat at. Tough life, eh? This luxury complex is so family-focussed my friends with kids who stayed here even found a sterilising kit for their baby's things in their apartment. There are also ramps for pushchairs (and wheelchairs), and lots of kids activities to keep them entertained, plus plenty of suitable TV channels in the apartments.

Location: 

Walking distance to the beach and about a ten-minute drive to the centre of Marbella. Your best option would be to get a car if you’re planning on exploring the sights.

Bedrooms: 

The apartments have all you could need including a fully-fitted kitchen, espresso machine, washing machines and Jacuzzi-baths, and almost all have sea views and medium-sized terraces. The pastel-coloured soft furnishings are a little dated and the furniture a little fussy for me, but overall, far better equipped than most family hotels.

Public areas: 

Spacious, clean and functional, but its gaudiness is unlikely to win the resort any interior design prizes.

Eating and drinking: 

I highly recommend lunch on the terrace overlooking the sea at El Med, although most families tend to nip back to their apartments for a snack and then re-group by the pool. The tapas at Chill Bar are traditional and tasty – especially the meatballs in tomato sauce!

Leisure facilities: 

Three outdoor pools, one indoor one, hot tubs, a spa and beauty centre and a gym. Everything is immaculately maintained on a daily basis.

Service: 

Professional and polite, but not overly personal.
