I have just returned after a lovely week at the Marbella Beach Hotel and feel thoroughly relaxed and revived. I would like to start by saying what makes this hotel extra special is the staff, they are all WONDERFUL! Nothing was a problem and they would greet you everyday with a cheery smile and could not do enough for us. This was evident at all meals and all the bars during our stay. This really enhanced out trip.
There was a problem on arrival with the beds in our room and although not sorted satisfactorily, they best effort was made and we made do. There was also a problem with our door not locking and at one point we had five people trying to fix it and thought we may have to move, it was also sorted out.
We had a suite in one of the cluster buildings and actually had two balconies, which is a first! The views were amazing from our room. The room was very modern and clean and we had everything we needed. As there were three of the us the real bonus was the two showers and the two toilets, great.
The food served at all meals was superb and we didn't find that it was at all repetitive of boring, everyday there were new dishes to try. The rose went down a treat too! The all inclusive option
did include most drinks and meals, but you could pay extra for certain things which we noticed were priced quite high. We ate at the Italian which is included once during your stay and the meal was excellent, I strongly recommend the risotto to start.
The communal areas are kept absolutely immaculately and there always seemed to be a team of people cleaning and maintaing everything to a very high standard. There is a shop on site and you can get most things you have forgotten in there. We took the bus to Corfu old Town (e1.70 each way) and it picked us up at 10.00am right outside the front of the hotel.
We didn't have to fight at all for sun beds and had plenty to choose from most days, not until the last day when we noticed the hotel was busy and most of the sun-beds were covered by 9.00am. I would agree with a previous reviewer, and as it was the start of the season I feel we got the best from the Marbella Beach, I do feel it would be a different story during high season. We cannot wait to go back and hope to return in September, I would highly recommend this hotel, but just watch when you go!
