At Marina Mariola now excellent location and beautiful apartment will definitely recommend this travelling with young baby the apartment has everything you need 5 star lovely restaurants just downstairs Japanese and cappuccinos
Our booking (with Coral Beach) for our 2 bedroom apartment said 'side garden view' and we were unsure what to expect; it was in fact in a brilliant position, with a lovely garden view straight ahead, the mountains to the right and the beach to the left - a great view from our large west facing balcony, which, with its dining furniture and small sofa, was a lovely space in itself. The apartment itself was airy and spacious, with the balcony running the length of the main bedroom and large sitting room. Everything was there for a comfortable stay. The apartment block (which on entering felt more like a hotel) is right on the promenade, with an easy walk into the livelier part of Marbella, and a longer walk along the prom to Puerto Banus. There were bars and restaurants on the doorstep but it had a quieter feel to further along towards central Marbella. The swimming pool, looking out to sea, was wonderful. Should we come back to Marbella, this is where we'll be staying.…
EXCELLENT location, very efficient setup and exceptional maintenance. Child friendly to boot!!! We had the beach facing apartment with 2 bedrooms and it was even adequate for 2 couples plus 2 kids! What more do you want?
It doesnt help if the apartments and the location is great when the staff is terrible! I have never been so badly treated on a Hotel before. It is the whole experience that counts and on this Marina Mariola really sucks! Never ever Marina Mariola again!
From the moment we walked into the reception floor and saw the indoor gardens, it was just..."wow!" Then the glass-walled lift takes you up to your floor allowing you see more of the gardens as you ascend. Our 2-bedroomed side sea view apartment (R.217) was beautiful, with white gloss furniture, white leather seating, marble flooring, large TV in lounge & a smaller one in the master bedroom (KS bed). The other bedroom, which we didn't use, had twin beds. Both had built-in wardrobes & plenty of storage. There were 2 bathrooms with bath/shower, WC & bidets. The larger has twin washbasins, the smaller has one. Again plenty of storage, mini toiletries provided, & a hairdryer in larger bathroom. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, cutlery & cookware. There was a sink, hob, oven, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, large fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer & dishwasher. On arrival, a large bottle of water, bottle of wine & chocolate truffles were waiting for us - what a lovely touch! The balcony ran the width of the apartment with sliding glass doors from the lounge and master bedroom. There was enough room for a table & 4 chairs as well as a sofa and occasional table, & a small clothes dryer. The apartment overall was spacious, clean & luxurious. The only minor quibble would be no instruction books for the kitchen appliances, & the one supplied for the main TV was in German. We couldn't find any English channels to watch. The swimming pool area has great views of the promenade, which is being re-surfaced, and the sea. There were plenty of sunbeds. We loved our apartment & would love to return.…
We wanted a hotel at a location where we could take day trips to Granada, Cordoba, Seville and Ronda, a self-catering accommodation with good facilities and free parking, walking distance to a supermarket and restaurants and Marina Mariola was perfect. We didn't use the pool because the weather was too cold, but I am sure it is very nice during the summer. We were lucky to have beautiful sunshine throughout our stay, temperature averaging around 15 degC. Our 2-bedroom apartment was very nicely furnished, equipped with modern facilities and cleaned daily. There is a supermarket down the promenade about 800m away and many restaurants within walking distance.
Great place with the most amazing views out to the sea. At night you can hear the sea from your bedroom, so lovely. Very secure, clean and well equipped building. Pool is fabulous, again with the amazing sea views. Lovely apartment. Great central location with easy walking distance into Marbella centre and old town.
In my last review I said I hoped to return soon, So I did! This time there were more of us, so I booked a 3 bedroom penthouse with private plunge pool. I'm very pleased I did, as the rooftop terrace is the most perfect spot to enjoy the sun and the views of the sea and mountains. Wonderful service from Carlos again, thank you for your warm welcome. Only the addition of cushions for the sun loungers would have made it completely perfect. I'll say it again.....I hope to return soon!
Just returned from a lovely break at the Marina Mariola. A very well maintained apartment with fantastic views of the sea. Access straight on to the promenade, affording easy walking opportunities to Marbella town to the left, or the Golden Mile and Puerto Banus to the right. An extremely secure building with excellent facilities. Carlos was very helpful and professional and congratulations on the imminent birth of his baby! A lovely place to stay and after staying at various 5 star hotels in the area, this compares very favourably both on quality and value. We hope to return soon!
Arrived at Marina Mariola to discover that all the facilities were out of order, that is, the suana, hot tub, and heated pool was not in working conditions. My family and I had an awful time since no one could enjoy themselves in the facilities that was advertised. They received all their money as agreed upon and could not even keep to their promises. What a bunch of fools and liars! I would not recommend any families to ever rent an apartment with these people. They are unprofessional and tell lies and have no common decency to communicate among themselves. What a bunch of common fools and liars! They need to be retrained in customer service because they lack it in ever area. To to show how foolish they are ... the property manager of this facility was never available when needed and the only way a person could receive any action from them was through emails and using other people's cellular phones. Don't waste your time and money. Don't ever stay here.…
