Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We have been coming to Playa Andaluza for years and has never failed to impress. We were granted our request for a room in the Granada building with a sea view, which was a wonderful surprise! All of the staff are welcoming and nothing is ever too much trouble. The variety of activities on-resort is brilliant, including the bingo near the Pool Bar, where the activities team are ready to entertain you and making sure that everyone is enjoying themselves. Wonderful holiday as always marriott 10/10!

As a Marriott Titanium Elite foe Life member and having leveraged our Interval International exchange system extensively, I'd highly recommend this vacation club for families! While having a rental car was helpful, the resort has just about everything a family, right down to toddlers, could need to enjoy a family vacation. We had 7 adults and one child in one 2 bedroom and one 3 bedroom apartments. They were great with only one negative: the hideaway beds/couches had to be the absolute worst. Hopefully management changes them out soon 😀. Otherwise everything was super. One thing we loved was how most of the sports sites left everything you needed to play. They included ping pong, basketball, soccer, chess, checkers and a cool indoor games room with old style video games - all free! It only took a minute to to the the market (open 24/7) to get mini-golf putters and balls or shuffleboard poles (??) and rocks (??). The picketball rackets and balls (never played before but I think they were actually tennis balls) were at the front desk. There are TONS of infant spaces including one indoors. Apparently there's a babysitting service but our kids didn't use it for our grandson. There's a great indoor pool with lap area and multiple hot tubs, warm tub for children and a souna and steam room. Most of the outdoor pools were closed but we expected that during off season. The main restaurant was also closed but they had room service. There's a nice grocery store a short walk away and tons of restaurants within walking/driving distance. Would definitely stay here again!

Amazingly well kept resort, literally on the beach, very good for children also. Top service. The double bedroom units are very comfortable, with several tv's, washer/drier, full kitchenette, balcony, two bathrooms etc. Nice plus: on site bakery makes fresh croissants in the mornings. The real deal, not some imitation that only has the shape of a croissant but not the dough and the texture. One would almost forget to get out and see the beautiful cultural, architectural and culinary things Andalucia also has to offer. Only one thing to keep in mind: a rental car is very handy, public transport is a bit limited.

Stayed here on a special deal which, as we were told, a 45 minutepresentation on the property and how to buy into it. The resort itself is very nice, beach poor. Apartment has everything you will need. Ours was 2 bedroom, 1 ensuite, that had access to the balcony. The other had access to a shared bathroom with the living area. Kitchen well appointed with utility that had washing machine and dryer. A bit dated but acceptable. Grounds looked well maintained. The issue. Dirty sheets in arrival. Restaurant and bar expensive, Aldi within 10 minutes walk. Sales presentation! Not sure what to say on this. Turned out that it was now 1.5 hours. Turned up early, staff chatting and wondering around. Asked when it would start and told just setting up. 25 minutes late it started! I don't stay in the same place twice and they wanted me to buy a week a year in this property until 2052, no confirmed cost of this just 'for example'..... We said no, the colleague got up and said we need to go through a questionnaire before leaving - did not see him again. Waited 5 minutes and got up to leave, stopped to say someone in there way. The questionnaire was why are not buying anything, why are we not interested etc. Offered a discounted return, said no again and this colleague got up and walked off. Beware of these deals.

3 nights, apartments OK but not worth the money they want from is. Had a compulsory meeting yesterday, should have been 45 mins, it was 90 minutes! Flagged it up. Meeting started almost 25 mins late, wasting more of our holiday time. It wasn't sold efficiently and there were statements that couldn't be realistic or realised. We were asked if a reduced cost trip would be nice and we said no. At that point, he jumped up immediately and meeting finished. Just goes to show that they only want your money and your health and well-being are a very low 2nd. Wouldn't touch this place or their offers with a barge pole. Glad we took a wide berth. I won't say what I really feel as we're staying here currently. Oh forgot dirty sheets.

There is a feeling that the team at this location want you to have a good time and that they are there to support you in achieving this. Front desk staff were very helpful and accommodating on our early arrival (pool towels provided). This continued throughout - with efficient and prompt ordering of taxis for us. The concierge provided useful advice and was very helpful indeed. We joined the Tapas Tour, which was hosted by the entertainment/restaurant team. The food was excellent as was the choice of wine provided for each part of the tapas. The gardens are well-maintained, there is a pool bar/cafe serving a decent range of snacks and drinks and the mini market is well stocked with fresh croissants in the morning. Truly one of the best Marriott resorts we have stayed at. Access to the site is by card key and there is access to the beach behind the hotel - but between the pools and many areas to sit around the gardens, there is no need to venture beyond the gates! The concierge provided us with a map of local restaurants which was very helpful. Estepona is a 15-20m taxi ride from the resort.

We only had 3 nights here but wished we had booked longer. The resort is beautiful, the staff is very friendly. Our studio room was comfortable with a small patio over looking the kids pool. We were happy to hear they had free washers and dryers to use on property. The breakfast buffets was delicious and we pre paid for the 3 mornings. We also had dinner here which was a three course meal which was very good. They offer three happy hours buy one get one free which was nice. We enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tubs one night. The one thing we noticed is most of the tourist here are British or French which was fine with us but just not expected. I would come back here again but for a longer stay next time.

We've been owners here since inception and still waiting for the bad news. This time we had just the 4 of us (usually 6) and still get the same great holiday experience. The guest care is second to none, and although some of the soft and hard furnishings are beginning to look a little tired, and might be due for an upgrade soon, it's still a 5 star experience.

We just came back from the Marriott Playa Andaluza and we thought it was an excellent resort. It was so clean and our room was spotless. I thought it was a good idea not to have towels hanging from the balconies as it makes the resort look much smarter. Everyone who worked at the resort was polite and friendly, and there is lots to do for children and teenagers. We thought that the outside bbq area was a really good idea. The paper print-outs of activities were a nice touch. Thank you to all the staff for their hard work. It is a lovely resort.
