Just returned from Club Marbella/Regency Palms September 14th 2011
We really enjoyed this resort. We used it as a base spot, as we had a car and we visited many locations on the Costa Del Sol. We booked through RCI and have no complaints. It was clean and well appointed. We were comfortable and felt completely safe. The resort does have a lot of steps but it is not bad. There is a nice pool area and restuarant etc... Our unit was set up to sleep 6 and had plenty of room. The kitchen had a micro wave, stove top, fridge and clothes washer - dishes utensils etc... (even some soap for the washer). We had a car and we were glad - driving in Andalucia is not bad at all - pretty similar to the states - traffic was not real bad either. It was a nice drive out to Ronda and over to Fuengirola, we even drove to the border of Gibraltar - all of this with a rental car from Malaga and we put on less than 800 KM. Several days we drove minimal to the beach at Cabopino - which I highly recommend. We rented two beach beds under an umbrella for 10 euro for the pair each day we went to Cabopino. There is great food at the beach too - Andy's and the Fish/Chips place both were great!!
Back to the Club Marbella Regency - no air conditioning but not a problem we left the windows open at night and ran the ceiling fans - we were very comfortable. Nice bathrooms - everything was really great - flat screen TV with cable programming in the family room (a TV in the bed room would be nice) - english, spanish and german tv. There is a free wifi zone, Wifi in the room is more matybe 30 euros for the week? We used the zone. The safe was only 1 euro a day and we used it. There is a "pay" to use the internet room - very reasonable and you can email stuff to the front desk if you need it printed. We saw many families enjoying the resort and we really found it to be an excellent time share - better than average. We also felt very safe and had absolutely no issues to complain about. We are seasoned travellers who appreciate a nice uncomplicated place to stay. For us this was perfect! Be sure and go to Fuengirola, Gibraltar and up to Ronda and don't miss Cabopino beach - i think the hotel bus drops people at Cabopino but parking there is free and seemed to be safe too. The staff at Club Marbella were excellent and helpful - spoke perfect english and gave great directions/advice. Thank you Club Marbella!! ( I dropped a star for not having a TV in the bedroom and for not having AC - everyone can improve a little.)
