Apartment in Marbella, Costa del Sol, Spain - Situated In The Heart Of Marbella Adjacent To The Beach
About ANNE BIRTLES
My husband and I and two children visited Marbella some years ago on holiday and loved it so much we bought a holiday apartment.
ANNE BIRTLES purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why ANNE BIRTLES chose Marbella City Centre
We wanted a great location on the beach with three balconies and two bedrooms ensuite. With walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars and harbour views we found exactly what we were looking for in the Palm Beach block.
Pool / Spa
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund
I have been to Marbella on many occasions so I know the area well. This apartment is in a great location. Right by the promenade and walking distance to the old town. No need for a car. The fact that each bedroom and lounge has their own balcony is a great bonus. Large enough to have one with a table and six chairs and the others with two sun-loungers on each. We also appreciated the fact that beach towels were provided as we always travel with cabin bags only. The swimming pool is much nicer than we were expecting and often we were the only people using it (in August). There is a supermarket close by and the owners have also provided trolleys so you can get your shopping back easily. Overall we were very pleased with out stay, a lovely large apartment. It is not perfect, as mentioned in earlier reviews, but in my opinion, compared to other apartments I have stayed in, this represents great value for money and is priced fairly. I would also like to add that the owner was very helpful, quick to reply and the whole process of booking and receiving the keys etc went very smoothly. We will certainly be returning to this apartment in the future.
Always a pleasure
Always a pleasure to stay in this apartment. Perfect location overlooking promenade and sea. Modern apartment with all facilities and has swimming pool as added bonus. Will be back.
Location is great - lovely sea views and not too far into the old town or the main streets of Marbella if you want away from the busy touristy bits. It is quite a noisy area but it didn't bother us too much.The apartment is very spacious and we loved having the three balconies. The online photos of the pool area don't do it justice - the pool is bigger and the surrounding area is much nicer than it appears. For the first time we didn't hire a car and we're glad because I think parking around the area might be difficult. A car isn't necessary though as local buses are fine if you want to go out of town. The air conditioning was efficient - but we didn't need it much because we could open the windows, with shutters down, and get a breeze blowing through. Remembering to put the hot water heaters on was a bit of a challenge, but the water did heat up quite quickly so no real issue. Some bits of the apartment look like they need a bit of updating, but overall it was clean and very spacious and had everything we could want in a great location!
Lovely spacious apartment with stunning views of the beach and marina. Perfect location.
First visit by our family to the Marbella area. The apartment was perfect for our needs. Balconies provided great views and hearing the sound of the sea first thing in the morning is something we never tired of. Swimming pool was an added bonus and was never too busy. All facilities provided and a nice touch was a selection of DVD's, games and books. Perfect location to explore local area with great selection of restaurants within walking distance as well as shops. Boat trips run from nearby marina and lots of water sports to choose from. Convenient for buses to explore further afield. Cannot recommend highly enough and wouldn't hesitate to use again.
