This was our first trip to this resort which came about as an exchange opportunity. The location by the beach side with it well maintained gardens and and well laid out facilities was a very pleasant surprise. Although it took over an hour and a half from Malaga airport by the shuttle service used, it turned out to be a... More

It was our first visit to Spain, and we had a wonderful time. The Marriott stay was so enjoyable. We really have to compliment the concierge service. Andres Zarco especially provided us with guidance tailored to our interests and gave us great advice on which tours to take and where we would be able to drive and tour on our... More

The first two nights we stayed in a one bed studio which was adequate but very small, but very clean and comfortable beds.

The apartments are beautiful with everything you could... More

Our stay at the Marriott Playa Andaluza turned out to be very pleasant and above our expectations. The staff were very very good - both friendly and exceedingly helpful for visiting in the area.

We recently stayed at The Playa Andaluza after spending a week in Barcelona. It is a lovely resort- typical of the Marriott Time shares. We rented a two bedroom, two bath unit which had a view of the water from our balcony. Maid service was provided daily, and everyone was pretty friendly. The staff was extremely helpful.

Everything about this Marriott is outstanding. Every detail has been thought through. It is quieter than the Marriott in Marbella which was perfect for us. We had a spacious 2 bedroom unit for 4 people. We would definitely return.
