Reviewed 8 June 2017

For those looking for an intimate hotel, it doesn't get much better. It is all low rise; small pockets of accommodation surrounded by glorious flowers and trees. It is definitely exclusive but not stuffy at all. I had a sea view room on the ground floor which had a large terrace then steps down to a big terrace with 'Nicky Beach' style sun beds for two plus, which were private to only four rooms. A few steps away was the sea/pool and sea restaurant/bar. On the beach was a separate beach bar and restaurant. The rooms were large as were the bathrooms. There are a few bars/restaurants scattered around but nothing noisy. Also a well run kids club. The buffet breakfast was superb, with chefs waiting to make you a fresh juice (not your norm, these were for detox/skin/liver etc etc) and were delicious, there was also free champagne, although a bit early for me!!
The service was very good but, disappointingly, I found the food unremarkable for a place like this. Therefore you are best to eat at one of the many good restaurants around in my opinion, especially considering their prices. Drinks €20 approx for a short and mixer too!
I would definitely stay here again, it was just lovely, peaceful and friendly.

Room Tip: Ground floor sea view have good terraces and access to a larger private terrace area with sun beds.

Dear OliveOilGirl,

Thank you for taking the time to write such an extensive review.

I am delighted that you enjoyed our newly refurbished rooms and the privacy of their terraces.

And thank you again for your kind compliments regarding our Kids Club and the choices and service at our Breakfast Buffet. I will let our team know you had a wonderful experience!

I was sorry to read our culinary offerings didn’t meet your expectations; we pride ourselves on delivering fresh, local Mediterranean fare in tune with the rest of the Hotel. I personally invite you to return for another look at our restaurants; I think you will be pleasantly surprised!

Best regards,
Julián Cabanillas

We absolutely loved our stay at the Marbella Club at the beginning of May. I was a little unsure as it was Marbella and an area I hadn't been to before. I was worried it would be a little 'Towie'...nothing wrong with this but not for us. Couldn't have been more different. It was so peaceful and relaxing and we felt pampered and rejuvenated. My husband really needed a holiday and we can't wait to return. The rooms were beautiful so much more than even the website had portrayed as were the gardens and the setting. The breakfast was idyllic under the olive trees and loved the option of two pool areas each with a different atmosphere. On the website, the loungers look white plastic but are in fact wooden and therefore very classic, fitting and comfortable. The website we felt didn't shows the hotel at its best. We looked at the reviews and so felt it was a good bet....it really was superb. They somehow get the mixture of decadence and luxury without pomposity..this is what was so relaxing. Service impeccable, attentive without formality...the managers at all the restaurants and breakfast fantastic. You really get the feel of the old Hollywood charm in a beautiful modern day design. Love, Love, Love

Room Tip: We asked for refurbished balcony room

Dear winnie96,

Thank you dearly for such an impeccable review!

You made a great choice coming to Marbella – there is so much to experience that doesn’t fit into the typical tour guide. And, we’re truly happy you chose Marbella Club for your stay.

The Marbella Club has a special charm and its illustrious history can be felt throughout the property. I am glad that you were touched by our past, but were able to feel the height of our standards today.

We know how important it is to choose a place that can transmit peace and tranquility, and that can only be felt when you return home. Thank you again for choosing us!.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Best regards,
Julián Cabanillas

Anyone giving this place less than 5 stars need to go and see a psychiatrist !
I decided this year after doing all the apartment and hotel holidays to give us a 2 night stay....
Amazing, amazing, amazing- everything is done to perfection
We arrived and were upgraded to a suite (without ever asking)- our room had everything and more !
There is no snobby behaviour from staff and no one expected a tip !
Everyone is very attentive and they walk around with a smile - nothing is too much trouble....
The bikes were a great bargain and we had an amazing day of cycling first to Marbella and then early evening to Puerto Banus.
I will be booking a week there next year (if you will have me of course :)
My only advice to Marbella Club hotel would be to publish more of their prices as it's just not anywhere near as expensive as you imagine it is going to be....
The food is amazing, we had a fantastic Paella on the beach with the best and biggest jug of Sangria (yes they know how to be traditional )
Thank you to everyone there for giving us the best 2 days holiday of our life !
We will be back for more
Oh and did I mention free parking !

Room Tip: OH and Free parking

Dear L8ly,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review of our hotel.

I was grateful to read that you and your family were treated with great care by the entire staff. We’re lucky that our team has such a passion for being more than attentive, and we’re happy that going the extra mile makes a difference.

We know how important it is to spend quality family time whilst on holidays and we were glad to know that you and your family enjoyed our offerings; from the bike strolls to Marbella and Puerto Banús to a beachside Paella.

We will seriously consider your suggestion and we would also like to recommend you joining any of our daily complimentary activities the next time you visit us!!
We really look forward to welcoming you all again very soon.

Best regards,
Julián Cabanillas

First time visiting the Marbella area. The Marcella Club Hotel was recommended by a friend and by our tour guide to Ronda. Service was friendly and attentive. More amazing was the Paella. Best Ever! Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Dear nc20022016,

Great Paella is hard to come by and we’re happy that you had such a wonderful experience at Marbella Club!

We hope you will return and try a lovely candle-lit dinner at our signature restaurant, The Grill, or our varied seafood buffet at the Beach Club.

Have a wonderful summer.

After arriving to a scam Airbnb in Malaga, our family quickly jumped on our phones to find a place to stay for our two nights in the area. Marbella Club had two open rooms for us and welcomed us with open arms. Even with our late arrival, they accommodated our stay.

After upgrading us to suites, we were shown to our beautiful rooms. Hey we're spacious and luxurious in design. We enjoyed the garden view. See photo for a view of the spa and the entrance to the hotel.

The food was incredible and catered to my mother and I's health conscious taste. We got fresh ginger shots and omelettes with guacamole for breakfast.

Service - this hotel had the highest quality service of the 4 leading hotels of the world we visited during our Spain trip. The dry cleaning was the best my entire family had seen ever. The bellmen gave us a great tour of the property and helped us graciously. The concierge set us up with the best food in Spain (we recommend Skina and a Sushi restaurant named Takami..?)

The wellness aspect of the property - we didn't have time for it but look forward to an opportunity to return in the future FOR SURE.

Thank you Marbella Club.

Dear Emma M,

Thank you for such gracious comments!

We are incredibly happy that your stay in Marbella Club changed your initial perception about our destination!!

Our accommodations are very unique and spacious, it is something that defines the Marbella Club, along with its views to the beach or to our mature manicured gardens that the founder of The Marbella Club once planted himself. Our team truly takes to heart the concept of customer service aiming always to make clients feel like home, in a familiar ambiance.

As you say, our hotel is hotel is very oriented to health, and that is reflected in our restaurants, so that our guests don’t have to break from their nutritional routines while on vacation. We hope that, upon your return, you can stay longer with us, so that you can fully experience our Wellness offering – you’ll surely be pleasantly surprised!
We look forward to seeing you again,

Kind regards,
Julián Cabanillas
