“Fantastic” We have now for the third time stayed in the appartment and it was for the third time a great experience. Good facilities, nice view from the large terrace, good weather and a lovely area with a lot to do and see.
I was impressed with the Mar Azul complex, really well maintained and lovely staff. However, I was disappointed with the surrounding area, and not being able to walk safely with children and a pushcha… More
it's very unfortunate you had as you said "few negatives" we were fairly new to renting our apartment last year and your experience has given us the opportunity to learn and correct a number of the issues you have mentioned,because we are rarely in that apartment we were not aware on these issues.we have replaced the chair on the terrace and the curtain tracks have been replaced.Also the musquito screens have been repaired.this season we will also provide a items like salt pepper etc.
In our advertisement we do recommend to rent a car ,we have seen very positive reviews from visitors with small children (see Tripadvisor) but i suppose they had a rental car to get around.Again,thanks for these comments it will make the stay of future guests even better
My husband and I and our 10 year daughter stayed in the apartment at Mar Azul for 10 nights in August. This is our third holiday in this part of Spain and our choice of accommodation lived up to expectations.
The apartment is beautiful. Modern stylish decor, very clean and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The complex is great, with a large swimming pool surrounded by lovely landscaped gardens. There are plenty of sunbeds around the pool and despite it being high season it didn't feel crowded at all.
We walked along the sea front several times to Laguna Village, both during the day and on an evening for meals. This is a lovely place with a good choice of restaurants and a few boutique shops.
We hired a car for the full 10 days and travelled about visiting Estepona, Puerto Banus, Marbella and Rhonda. Rhonda is beautiful town and well worth a visit. Secure parking is available in an underground carpark (under complex).
The whole complex is gated and can only be accessed with a key card, so very safe/secure.
One little point, the only English channels we could get on the TV were news channels.
Overall we had a really great holiday and I would recommend this apartment☺️ …
Bahia de la Plata
Total relaxation in premium quality complex
I have just returned from a week long holiday with my two teenage children. It really was a most enjoyable and relaxing holiday and the accommodation and the complex were exactly as described and were indeed top class. Everything was extremely clean, of the highest quality and contributed to a hugely enjoyable experience. The swimming pools were immaculate and we also had immediate access to a lovel beach and a short drive to Laguna Village with its lovely bars and amazing restaurants. The town of Estepona has a very Spanish feel to it and we had great fun exploring the town and trying the amazing food everywhere we went. It was a fantastic break, a great host, superb facilities and really nothing but positives to take from the entire experience. …
MARAZUL Resort -Beach-side luxury
Excellent holiday resort & apartment, MARAZUL E5
Last month we had a fantastic holiday in Brian's apartment E5. The resort was lovely, with the main feature being the large tropical swimming pool which overlooks the sea. It is a very quiet & relaxing location just on the edge of Estepona. The Laguna Village complex just along the beach was the ideal place to wander to for a relaxing upmarket meal or drink at one of their excellent restaurants or beach clubs. Brian's apartment was the ideal place to stay with two children under 5 as the apartment was very spacious, modern and has a small ground floor garden which we were able to secure with gates, overlooking the tropical pool. The apartment was very clean and had everything we could need including high chair, travel cot, washing machine, and even toys for the children to play with in the pool. Brian was an excellent host, passing on full details about the apartment and the surrounding area. We highly recommend Brian's apartment E5 at MARAZUL. …
