I stayed with my aunt and uncle and we all had a great time! All the staff were wonderful! Tomasso the manager was helpful in giving us ideas on excursions. They even helped me when I struggled to withdraw cash from ATM! Antony Wolfson did great singing for all the customers one night.

We are Marriott owners and this is the 6th vacation club we have visited. The first one in Europe, as the others were in Asia Pacific and the US. And as usual, it was an excellent experience.

Long trip from NY. But was welcomed warmly at this beautiful Marriott resort! Great spot to day trip to Ronda, Gibralta, Marbella, Malaga. The staff was always helpful with directions and assistance when our tire went flat. We also ate three times at the Solera restaurant on site and thought every meal was amazing ! Enjoyed the flamenco show. The... More

Lovely apartments, very friendly staff, good selection of activities. All the things you'd expect from a Marriott Vacation Club resort. The only thing that let it down for us was the evening we spent in the restaurant. We'd pre booked a night when the singer Anthony Wolfson was performing and based on reviews on here, were very much looking forward... More

As we all expect of Marriott this club is as nice and "luxerious" as all Marriott properties. Especially for families this resort will be a relief. Lots of organized and supervised activities, even for the parents too....if they not want to relax at one of the many pools or dirctly on the beach. Beach as such is nice to play... More

We come back time and time again. Great service, rooms and above all nice co- residents. The only fault is that the outdoor pools are not heated and the new electric bbq's are lacking compared to the gas bbq's. The staff do an amazing job and are always so polite and efficient.
