We had a great time at Marbella!
We really enjoyed our time in this very comfortable apartment, everything is like new, and very clean. The best part was we had direct views over the beach from our terrace... Wonderful at all times of day and night! The apartment is in a large complex of five buildings, on the third floor of a 12 story tower. The whole complex is very nice and with very nice amenities. Three of the five buildings as of January 2013 are finished, the other two nearly so. There is visible security (and not carrying big rifles like in some other places, I was glad to see) all the time as well as a friendly and helpful reception person during office hours.
Even with the scale of the buildings the beach was never crowded, we were amazed how private it felt. The pools are huge, fantastic, right on the beach. The restaurant on the beach was pretty good, not standout excellent, but convenient even though it closes at 8pm. Outside the complex there are a few other options nearby, and also a great small Italian bakery for fresh delicious breads, (Panaderia Italiana). We brought most everything we needed with us so we didn't really explore much, but the immediate area around Marbella seems to be lively and safe.
We definitely recommend this apartment, and will certainly book it again, hopefully soon. The whole process was very simple to book, and someone met us on arrival to show us the details of the apartment quickly and simply. The only downside of the apartment is that the master bedroom and both bathrooms have no windows for fresh air, so having the air conditioning on was kind of necessary, but it was certainly not a problem, very comfortable, just no ocean breezes while you sleep. Also, there is no espresso maker, just an American style drip coffee machine, so if you need your espresso like us, bring along a little stovetop "cafetera" & ground coffee.
