We stayed here for six days in November and had fantastic weather! Everybody at this hotel is so friendly and will do anything to make your stay enjoyable.

This was our third time here. We love the hotel, the grounds, the food, the service and the location. We had a great sea view with balcony room and access to the lounge (red level service) which means we can have a snack lunch there. Breakfast is included and is excellent with a wide range of fresh fruit as well... More

A wonderful hotel. Relaxed atmosphere, lovely bars and restaurants. Food and drinks are pricey but many great places a short stroll away. Rooms are immaculate as are all the general areas. We went in November and there was plenty of sheltered space around the pool that allowed you to enjoy the sun.

Whether they're the jolly, smiling young ladies "manning" the front desk area and happily dispensing directions and shopping advice or seeing to missing complimentary water bottles in the room or the kind and attentive sales associates in the lobby shops or the terribly sweet and sincere gentleman who sees to the strange and temperamental room AC, the Gran Melia Marbella...
