The experience was awful. From arrival at the run down reception to the very dated suite.
Staff apart from a few notable exeptions give the impresion that you should not be there
and forget the idea that they are there to serve .This particularly applies to the main bar and the grill where I was served with the worst steak of my life.
Also the experence of binge drinking teenage children of British and Irish parents astonishing not to mention walking out first thing in the morning to be welcomed by empty beer cans and cigarette butts.
The only shining light was the MC cafe where the service was very good and friendly by a
happy young staff it would seem that the old guard is the problem.
Living in Australia we will stick to the likes of Aman , Four Seasons, and Trisara in Asia where a villa with your own private pool, wonderful service and food, all for a cost which is less than the Marbella Club Hotel.
Perhaps europeans use this property because of cheaper airfares but sadly it also cheapens the experience
