Reviewed 14 July 2012

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week at the beginning of July. Wow! Had a studio apartment which was so much bigger than we were expecting. Bathroom, kitchen and balcony were all lovely and it was cleaned everyday - great to come back to made beds.

Staff were all very knowledgeable, helpful and spoke fantastic English. It is in an ideal location - seconds from the beach, about 5 minutes to the Old Town and 5 minutes along the seafront to a wide selection of restaurants and bars. It's also walking distance to Puerto Banus (about 8km) which is a really beautiful walk and a taxi back only costs about 10 euros. Pedalos are available to hire about 5 minutes down the beach and are great fun.

The rooftop pool is quite small as has been mentioned but suited us perfectly especially with the sea literally next door. Got a sun lounger everytime and it was very peaceful and relaxing. The restaurant terrace has amazing views of the sea and the mountains and does excellent sangria! Breakfast was lovely with a nice variety of things.

Overall a fantastic hotel which is great value and perfect for couples who just want to relax. Couldn't rate highly enough!

My friend and I are just back from a weeks stay at the Princesa Playa and cannot fault it one bit. The hotel itself is immaculate and our room was cleaned every single day of our stay. The staff could not have been more helpful and the location could not have been better, it sit right on the beach and the promenade. Our room was a one bedroomed apartment even though we only paid for a studio and the balcony was huge looking over the ocean. The rooftop pool just topped off an excellent stay here and i would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 711 which had a big balcony and an ocean view.

Stayed in the studio apartments which were good size, no worse than expected. Really good location on the sea front. At the start of the seawalk towards Puerto Banus where there are loads of bars and restaurants. Also on the edge of the old town which is fabulous to wander round - also full of shops and cafes and some great restaurants.
We got the bus to Marbella bus station and then a taxi - make sure the taxi knows it's the Princess Playa apts in Marbella you're going to as ours started to take us on the motorway to the next resort where there is another hotel by the same name! Fare should be less than 10 euros. Taxi to PB marina was less than 15 euros.
The roof top pool is small but if all u want to do is dip in and out it's fine. There's no music there. The breakfast buffet is good and fresh. Lots of choice but we didn't sample the cooked brekkie, prefer the continental. Free WiFi at reception is good - saves data charges. Staff generally helpful.
Would definitely go back again.

I stayed here with two friends for four nights. The location is excellent, such a short walk across the road to the beach. The swimming pool was lovely and we always got a sunbed, although the hotel did seem pretty quiet, so you may not in peak season. The staff are friendly and kept the rooms super clean, fresh towels daily. It is close to the supermarket, restaurants, everything you could possibly want! I would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at this hotel twice in the past 3 months.
The lobby is nicely decorated, the staff are very polite and speak excellent English.
The second visit we had to keep rearranging our dates, which must have been a complete pain for the staff dealing with it as we changed the dates about 7 times!
We asked for a room with a sea view and we got what we wanted.
The maids cleaned every day if you wanted them to, or if you just wanted clean towels and extra toilet roll , you only had to ask a maid and it was done!
The pool is on the top floor with a fairly good view of the beach and the sea, it's not a massive pool area, probably about 20 sun loungers, but there was also a shaded area that you could sit in.
The breakfast was continental , with cereal, fruit, yoghurts,pastries, toast, meats and cheeses, and also Spanish omelette, hard boiled eggs or fried or scrambled, bacon and tiny sausages, also tea, coffee, fruit juices or herbal teas or water.if you like a good fry up, this would not be for you!!
The hotel is situated right on the front , the beach is nice and you can hire sun lounger and parasol just up the beach for 4euro per day.( the cafe that hire the sun loungers cook excellent locally caught fish).
There is wifi at the hotel but you do have to go to the lobby to connect, which has lovely seating areas.
There is room service if required, and you can order drinks (alcoholic also) and snacks upto 4 pm.
There is also a service for arranging trips, morocco being one of the day trips.
There is a supermarket around the corner that is open until 2 am where you can stock up on food or tea, coffee ,milk and water, all the rooms are equipped with fridges, hob, microwave .
On the day of our departure, we were able to check out of our room at 12, place our luggage in a hold all room, use the pool, go out for something to eat and then use the the special rooms allocated for departing guests where we could shower and change, obviously clean towels and toiletries were provided by the hotel.
If you require a taxi for the bus station or the airport, the staff will ring one for you.
We would stay here again, it was pleasant, clean accommodating and close the amenities we wanted.the staff were lovely.

Room Tip: Ask if you can reserve a room with a front sea view, it might always be possible, but if you don'...
