The MARAZUL apartments encircle a unique area of exuberant & colorful tropical gardens, a spectacular sculptured 'infinity' swimming pool, shallower areas suitable for children to play under lovely wooden bridges, flowing canals, fountains, cascading waterfalls, a giant overflowing bowl, sunken deck-chairs, jacuzi beds, and romantic thatched cabanas with lovely comfortable armchairs & settees.
This super-luxurious ground floor apartment is perfectly situated within (literally) a stone's throw of the Sea, and just 5 privacy steps up from the edge of the central pool area. The sliding glass doors from both lounge and master bedroom lead out into a sun-drenched terrace and private lawned garden, from which the views over the MARAZUL pools & Mediterranean sea beyond are just breathtaking !
Experience ultimate levels of comfort within this apartment:
This apartment encompasses the external charm of traditional rustic Andalusian architecture, yet with every concession to provide the ultimate levels of comfort, convenience, stylish outdoor living, and security.
No effort or expense has been spared to provide :-
Top of the range air-quality, heat & cool control system throughout the apartment;
Under-floor heating (with independent control to every room, including entrance hall & bathrooms);
Infinitely adjustable sunken halogen lighting incorporating 'mood-lighting' in lounge & dining area;
High quality piped music system throughout the apartment, including bathrooms & terrace.
There has never been a real need for the security measures we have, but that's maybe because we've got all angles covered, for peace of mind. The employment of 24 hour security staff is our biggest community expense, but this maximises, for all concerned, the feeling of well-being on the MARAZUL-RESORT, enhancing the relaxing and care-free ambience of this peaceful haven. So, for the security conscious, here are the measures we maintain :-
24 hour security staff, who you'll likely think of as your friends by the end of a holiday at MARAZUL.
A very simply operated alarm system interconnected to our security staff in the reception area.
Video & audio entry system. (See & talk to people outside the gates before you let them in).
Magnetic key-cards for all access doors (Like a hotel).
Your own space in an underground car park with remote-controlled gates (you're given a zapper) with a lift up from it.
Two 5-lever locks and peep-hole in front door.
And safety deposit box in master bedroom.
The vast sliding glass doors of both the lounge and the master bedroom lead onto the extensive terrace with private manicured lawned area in front, onto which the Sun shines all Morning, and until well into the afternoon. There's a dining table, 6 comfortable chairs, 2 loungers (with big thick cumfy cushions) and two deck-chairs (also with big thick cumfy cushions) on the terrace / lawn;
The perfect place for alfresco breakfasts in the morning;
The perfect place to “spread yourselves out” during the day;
The perfect place for a romantic candle-lit dinner in the evening ‘till late.
The large area provided by the terrace and our private lawn can be rendered 'child-friendly' by the easy erection of the provided trellises to cover the spaces between the wooden beams in the front garden wall, and a gate to guard the steps down to pool-side. We provide 2 cots, 2 high-chairs, a buggy, and a baby bouncer for our youngest guests at no additional cost.
Our young guests find our unique water features such as the meandering canals and underwater jacuzzi deck-chairs, a delight to play in. Shade can be provided by our thatched cabanas when required !
My guests have full & free access to MARAZUL's own leisure club with heated indoor pool, fully-equipped gym, saunas, etc.
MARAZUL has its own pool-side cafe / bar open at peak times, normally June to September.
Next door to the MARAZUL-RESORT is the world-famous KEMPINSKI RESORT HOTEL, providing more 5* facilities including pool-side restaurants & bars.
And just beyond that is the exotic 'LAGUNA VILLAGE', (now approached across a lovely promenade bridge) a unique concept of bars, cafes, restaurants, shops & swimming pools built RIGHT ON THE BEACH !
Then 'Cruisos', a cheerful beach-bar just beyond 'Laguna Village', providing good-value food & regular live music.
And our newest restaurant / bar....."The Golden Mile", just a 3 minute walk away. Enjoy grilled sardines and barbecued steaks right on the beach, professionally served !
And then there's a Thai buffet restaurant just 9 minutes walk away towards Estepona, and another two local tapas bars nearby.
We provide a shopping trolley with which to visit the local Aldi store, just 5 minutes walk away. There are small shops in both the Kempinski Hotel and Laguna Village.
With a double bed in the master bedroom (en-suite), two singles in the second bedroom (next to second bathroom) and the super-king-size bed which miraculously and almost effortlessly unwraps itself (complete with bedding!) from the superb settee in the lounge, we'll hopefully have all your sleeping arrangements covered. Sleeps 6 adults in total comfort, plus the two cots available for our younger guests.
We've tried to think of everything to provide YOU with YOUR perfect holiday.

About BRIAN COLLING
Having almost reached retirement age, I was looking for somewhere my wife & I liked, somewhere my children (now in their thirties) would like, and somewhere my Grandchildren would love. I found it on the MARAZUL-RESORT.
BRIAN COLLING purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why BRIAN COLLING chose Estepona
This is the only Spanish property I own now, but I have owned another. Twenty five years ago, before buying the first, I took note of three bits of advice I was given regarding buying a property in Spain. They were .....LOCATION.....LOCATION.....LOCATION..... ! So both properties I bought were as close to the Mediterranean Sea as the law allows, with magnificent views over it. It was good advice.
What makes this Apartment unique
Whatever the weather, there's a comfortable place for you in apartment E5 or elsewhere on the MARAZUL-RESORT. My terrace offers a choice of Sun or shade throughout most of the day. When the Sun clears the garden, about 4.00 in the afternoon, it's just a few steps to the loungers around the pools if you wish to continue your Sun therapy. In the off-season, when the inhabitants of most other MARAZUL apartments are nowhere to be seen, this terrace continues to be a lovely sheltered place to sit and watch the weather ! Our very effective air-conditioning system ensures that the rooms remain at exactly your chosen temperature, at all times of the year. Additionally we have underfloor heating for the cooler months, with thermostats in all rooms including bathrooms, entrance foyer, and kitchen. And for the odd day of inclement weather, we have our own leisure club with heated pool, gym, saunas, steam room, and spacious guest lounge. Our cabanas come in very useful too. They're like having your own play-room / romantic getaway / garden hut / wooden lodge / whatever you imagine them to be, they make great retreats for a bit of piece & quiet to read your book, for a family get-together, to play cards in, or just as an escape from the odd windy day. Everyone is happy on the MARAZUL-Resort, at whatever time of the year.

Children's shallow area. Pool bar & snacks. Brian's apartment is fabulous. Very modern and well kept. Highly recommend. .

VACACIONES EN ESTEPONA
Mi familia y yo hemos pasado unos días estupendos en el apartamento de Brain, realmente está en un entorno muy agradable y tranquilo.
El apartamento está muy completo y no le falta de nada, realmente se lo recomiendo a cualquier familia que quiera disfrutar en tranquilidad de unas buenas vacaciones.
Su ubicación es perfecta, está cerca de todos los servicios y al mismo tiempo fuera de todo el bullicio de una zona veraniega.
100 % recomendable
Brilliant Location Luxurious resort
Great well appointed apartment. Lovely pool great location.
The MARAZUL-Resort is in a prime South-facing sea-front location near Estepona, and close to Marbella, on the 'New Golden Mile'.
Having panoramic views over the shimmering Mediterranean Sea, with the African Coast & Rock of Gibraltar on the horizon, the outstanding beach-side MARAZUL-RESORT offers super-luxurious apartments in a stunning setting.
MARAZUL is a relatively compact, cosy, self-contained resort, a jewel in the crown on this lively coastline, a peaceful oasis in the midst of all the action.
Only 72 attractive apartment surround a fantastic pool and semi-tropical garden areas, likely the finest on the coast. These pages describe my raised ground-floor apartment, number E5, the most reviewed on several web-sites including Tripadvisor.
The location of the MARAZUL-Resort makes it the perfect choice for a holiday on the Costa del Sol, and our attached leisure club offers our guests a heated pool, well-equipped gym, sauna & jacuzzi.
This sophisticated and peaceful haven is at the heart of Europe's favourite recreational area, with all the following outstanding features within a palms reach:-
Right next door we have the 5 star Kempinski Bahia Hotel, fully fitted with facilities to match. Fine dining & plush garden bars, all of-course available to my guests;
The ultra-fashionable shops & high-class night-clubs & glorious beaches at Marbella;
The amazing harbour, fabulous luxury yachts, the beautiful people and their supercars, all in abundance, at nearby Puerto Banus;
The relaxing ambience of the traditional Estepona tapas bars in all the pretty squares;
The most colourful streets in Spain can be found in Estepona Old Town with 40,000 plant-pots bursting with colour ! And right in the centre of town, our brand new Orchid Horse, the biggest in Europe, adding to this floral extravaganza;
The Estepona Murals tour is unbelievable....my favourite, "The Fisherman", extends over the face of 5 apartment blocks !
The spectacular 'Laguna Village, just 6 minutes beach (or promenade) walk away from MARAZUL, offers a choice of a dozen up-market bars & restaurants, and very posh shopping experiences. Here you can alternate cocktail imbibing with Sun-bathing around gorgeous pools on the thickest white mattresses in a topless nomad's tent, all built right on the beach overlooking the gorgeous blue Mediterranean Sea.....this is pampering at it's finest.
And THE ICING ON THE CAKE ...we now have a stunning new bridge over the River Padron between MARAZUL and Laguna Village, providing a totally enchanting walk from one to the other, particularly in the evening when the promenade is illuminated, and the Sea floodlit !
The magnificent Selwo adventure park just 5 minutes drive away. A REAL adventure for all the family;
The spectacular DRIVE up the very nearby 4,500 feet Los Reales mountain, where you can LOOK DOWN on the Eagles & Vultures !
Visits to spectacular Ronda & Gibraltar will make days out to remember for a very long time, and both are within an hour's drive of the MARAZUL-Resort.
Other local facilities include two tennis clubs within a 10 minutes drive, and, back to practicalities, for shopping we have a new Aldi store just 10 minutes walk away.....shopping trolley provided in the apartment! And a huge supermarket (Carrefour) just 5 minutes drive away.
If you're a golfer, there are many prestigious championship golf-courses within a six minute drive, all suitable for playing all year round. Here are just a few of them :
Estepona Golf - 5 minutes
Atalaya Golf Club - 5 minutes
El Paraiso Golf Club - 5 minutes
Los Flamingos Golf Club - 6 minutes
There are few locations along this coastline with so much to offer within easy walking distance or within a very short drive, and NONE with our superlative facilities.
