This was our first trip to Mar Azul in Estepona and we approached it with some trepidation despite the fantastic reviews. I can only say it is a wonderful place to have a holiday. We have 2 girls aged 3 and 7 and they were in heaven at the resort. We had planned a number of days out but only...

My sister and I stayed in Brian's apartment E5 for the 4th time, on our annual "girls holiday". As usual it was fantastic, luxurious, clean, convenient etc. Thanks for keeping the high standards up Brian, you really do make it a very simple yet rewarding experience. Believe me, I would not return to the same place if the standard was...

My wife and I had a really relaxing and refreshing week stay at Mar Azul. The weather was not perfect but was definitely warm and inviting !

While the complex is really beautiful, make sure you don't stay in one of the units close to A-7 which is a 100 km/h four lane road right behind Mar Azul and very very busy. The beaches are a brown-grayish disappointment and there's no beach alongside the complex at high tide. You better hang out at the pool, which is...

The overwhelimingly favourable reviews of Mar Azul reflects its status as one of the jewels of the Estepona Coast. Like most properties up and down the coast with a beach view iit is near to the coast road. In reality its position and the fact that the apartments face into and away from the road mean that in practice noise...

We stayed in E-2 and had a wonderful time. The peaceful and tranquil nature of the pool areas and beach make this an ideal location for relaxation.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mar Azul Resort is an exclusive, luxurious and peaceful oasis in a prime South-facing beach-side location next to the Kempinski Hotel Estepona & Laguna Village, with panoramic views over the Mediterranean Sea. It comprises only 72 privately-owned luxury apartments (some of which are available for rental) & Aparthotel with leisure centre, in a magical setting of tropical gardens, sculptured swimming pools, fountains, waterfalls, and romantic thatched cabanas. The Mar Azul apartments encompass the external charm of traditional rustic Andalusian architecture, yet with every concession to todays' requirements for comfort, convenience, stylish outdoor living, and security. No effort or expense has been spared to provide the ultimate levels of luxury and comfort:- Top of the range air-quality, heat & cool control system throughout the apartment;. Under-floor heating with independent control to every room, including entrance hall & bathrooms. Infinitely adjustable sunken lighting incorporating 'mood-lighting' in lounge & dining area. High quality piped music system throughout the apartment, including bathrooms & terrace. Ultra modern kitchen featuring :- Siemens dishwasher, washing machine & tumble-dryer Stainless-steel fridge, freezer, microwave & cooker. Beautifully sculptured cupboard doors & granite worktops. Convenient marble "hatch" to dining area. Highest quality Travertino Marble on floors, walls and surfaces in both bathrooms, enhanced by:- Bidet in both bathrooms. Hydro-massage shower in a perfectly-matching marble cubicle. Rinsing shower over jacuzzi bath. "His & hers" wash-basins. Vast electrically heated mirrors which never steam-up ! Unfortunately, there's no rushing the ladies out of these bathrooms! For the security conscious, though never yet needed in an emergency, we have :- Video & audio entry system Magnetic key-cards Underground car park with remote-controlled gates Lift from garage Safety deposit box in master bedroom Alarm system and panic alarm button, Peep-hole in front door. These all combines to maximise the feeling of well-being on MARAZUL, enhancing the relaxing and care-free ambiance of this peaceful haven. "Outside living" is what it is all about here at Mar Azul. Vast full-width sliding doors open from both the master bedroom and lounge onto Sun-drenched terraces. Some ground floor apartments have their own gardens provided with dining table and comfortable chairs. This is the perfect place for those alfresco breakfasts in the morning. The perfect place for spreading yourselves out and relaxing during the day. The perfect place for a romantic candle-lit dinner in the evening 'til late. ... more   less
