This is NOT an anonymous apartment for your holidays, it is an ultra-luxurious meticulously prepared holiday HOME, with spacious terrace and private lawned garden, all just a few steps up from the one of the largest and prettiest outside swimming pools on the coast, and with glorious views over stunning lush Zen gardens and over the deep blue Mediterranean Sea beyond that.
With the bar & restaurant facilities of the Russian 5-star Kempinski Hotel next door, and the totally unique "Laguna Village" built right on the beach just 5 minutes walk away, the MARAZUL Resort really is in a perfect location.
The facilities on the MARAZUL Resort are impressive too.....with our very own leisure centre with inside heated pool, gym and sauna etc.
The apartment is fully equipped with air-conditioning and underfloor heating throughout, private car-parking, lift, luxury kitchen & two granite bathrooms, private Wifi system, hundreds of TV channels to view on a 24" plasma (and TV in master bedroom) and an electric BBQ !
But "outside living" is REALLY what it is all about here at MARAZUL. Vast full-width sliding doors open from both the master bedroom and lounge onto the sun-drenched terrace and private garden, provided with a lovely dining table, 6 comfortable chairs, two loungers, and two deck-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.

The Andalucia region
MARAZUL is a sophisticated and peaceful haven at the heart of Europe's favourite recreational area, all the outstanding features of which are within a palms reach :-
The ultra-fashionable shops and high-class night-clubs of Marbella;
The amazing harbour and fabulous luxury yachts in Puerto Banus;
The relaxing ambiance of the traditional Spanish tapas bars in the lovely village squares in nearby Estepona;
The prestigious golf-courses of Los Flamingos and El Pariso;
The spectacular 'Laguna Village' just 6 minutes walk along the beach;
The DRIVE up the nearby 4,500 feet mountain of Los Reales, and the view DOWN onto the Griffon Vultures and the Bonelli's eagles BELOW !
There are several bars & restaurants within a 10 minute walk of MARAZUL. The nearest is literally 2 minutes walk away, and has a lovely terrace with far-reaching mountain views. And within easy walking distance is Cruisos beach-bar, where you can eat and drink for very reasonable prices with your feet in the sand.
MARAZUL's outstanding beach-front location is enhanced by the close proximity of the four greatest attractions on this coast-line :-
First, and virtually next door, we have the world-renowned Kempinski Hotel Bahia Estepona, fully-fitted with “five superior stars”, and facilities to match. You have a choice of 4 restaurants & 2 bars. You just MUST try their Sunday Brunch !
Second, our latest addition, the “LAGUNA VILLAGE”. It is only a six-minute walk along the beach from MARAZUL, and comprises several exclusive shops, a luxurious beach-club (with white sun-beds inside white tents ! ), several unique terraced restaurants (including Sushi), cafes, bistros, and tapas bars. Here you can partake of a well-deserved dip in a beach-side pool between visits to the shops and between cocktails, in one of the luxurious bars overlooking nothing but the Sea and sand in this unique tropical oasis. Pampering at it's finest !
Third, the Selwo Adventure Park, just five minutes drive away. Here you get REALLY close-up to more than 2,000 animals from every continent, living in semi-freedom in a huge wilderness covering a million square metres. A fascinating tour can be made in a four-wheel drive truck that crosses the different landscapes of Africa without actually moving away from the Costa del Sol. Then take the short-cut back on foot, across overhead rope walkways, and through the biggest aviary in Europe, an utterly enchanting valley totally enclosed in netting ! If there's a MUST-DO for all the family, this is it !
I've left the best to the end. Of all the major attractions along the coast of the Costa del Sol, Estepona stands out from the crowd, and it's only 5 minutes in a taxi from MARAZUL along an extremely attractive tree-lined boulevard with lovely fountains, or a 30 minute amble along the promenades and beach. Estepona is the focal point of this luxury resort area because of it's authentic and unspoilt Andalusian atmosphere.
Estepona is a real living Spanish town of 30,000 souls, the ebb & flow of Estepona's daily and seasonal rhythms moves very much as it has done for centuries, reminiscent of another unchanging ebb & flow, that of the shimmering turquoise sea rippling up it's beautiful wide sandy beach.
The pace of life of the inhabitants, whilst perky in the morning, slows right down as the sun reaches it's highest point, only to erupt into lively exuberance as the sun sets and the young and old alike fill the quaint narrow cobbled streets, the atmospheric cafes, superb sea-food restaurants, and the locals' tapas bars in all the pretty squares.
The Sunday market in the marina is a weekend highlight, and to be followed up by a lovely meal in one of the many seafood restaurants surrounding the colourful bobbing boats is the icing on the cake.
And then, in 2012, things changed !..............for the even better !! In this year, the local council took up the streets in the old town (at the end nearest MARAZUL) and replaced the water & sewage systems, then recovered all that with cobbles, in some very interesting designs. They then stopped parking, made the streets residents-only for traffic, and screwed 14,000 plant pots to the walls ! Yes......14,000 ! These are colour-coordinated, so one street has all blue pots, the next red, or green, or lilac, or yellow. Or spotted. The historic centre of Estepona is now the most attractive in all Andalucia. Street after street of beautifully flower-decked houses. And this is where people actually live, it's not full of shops selling tourist tat. It is now the MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE to visit in the whole of the Costas ! And all within a forty minute walk (or a 4 minute taxi ride) of your apartment on MARAZUL.

"Heaven on Earth"
We had a really fantastic time staying in this luxury ocean-front apartment. Every aspect of life in this paradise was just a pleasure. Even in April you can go sightseeing all day, come back to the apartment at 7-8pm and still go for a swim in the pool and in the sea. Also, the spa is an absolute joy. We had a lot of fun driving round the mountain roads going up towards beautiful Ronda, and visiting places like Marbella and Gibraltar as well. Clubbing in Puerto Banus we can recommend. So thanks for such a great week. Only thing I would flag up to those interested in staying here is that the location means a hire car is definitely necessary.

We stayed at Mar Azul from 31st May for a week with our 10 year old daughter. The first day on resort was very quiet, only us and 2 other couples. The following day other guests arrived and stopped us worrying that we would be the only guests, i think this was due to the school holidays. The resort has 72 apartments of which quite are few are completely empty, this made the resort very quiet and peaceful. The pool area is stunning with the infinity pool looking out to sea although the perimeter fencing does spoil the view. The fencing does make the resort very safe for children because you have your own keys to get in and out of the gates. The pool bar is very nice, serving drinks and snacks and quite cheap compared to other bars in the area, coffees and beers are 1.50 euros and most lunch items are only 3 euros. The apartment is extremely well equipped, you do not need to take anything with you except beach towels. lots of sun beds are available and we never went near the pool before 10.30am as you did not have to try and reserve the sun beds. You definitely need a car to get to local Super Markets as there is not much within walking distance. All in all it is a really great resort, very relaxing with very friendly staff and although we try and go to different locations every year i do think we will be going back.

"Very good recommendation when staying in Estepona"
Brian's spacious apartment is a very good recommendation when staying in Estepona! You can do nothing wrong except getting lost in his large apartment equipped with all you need for a pleasant stay (from kitchen aid to towels to flat screen tv incl. sky to secured parking garage in the basement). All in all a good choice!! Two thumbs up!

"Mar Azul : a truly fantastic holiday complex!"
Stayed from 14th - 25th April 2012 We , a family of 5, spent 10 days, at Brian Collings beautiful 5 star luxury appartement at the Mar Azul, Estepona. Its one of the nicest places we have been to. The appartement feels huge, is very clean spacious and is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is modern and very well equiped. The beds are really comfortable and there is plenty of cupboard space. The bathrooms are amazing, beautiful marble walls and very roomy. The terrace and the corner of english lawn is such a treat! The appartement is on the best side of the complex as the sun shines through from morning until a good half of the afternoon, probably even later in the summer. The view from the terrace of the pool and the sea is stunning. The pool is fantastic, in top condition and extremely clean. We loved the tropical vegetation typical of Andalucia around the pool and with dozens of statues ornating the pool. Estepona is a lovely town, very clean and people there very friendly. Theres a long stretch of beach and lots of chiringuitos (beach bars) to stop at for a cocktail. I wish to thank the staff at Mar Azul, the reception staff, cleaners and gardeners who go out of their way to make your holiday stay a special one. And lastly Thankyou Brian. You're a fantastic owner and host. I highly recommend appartement E5 at Mar Azul, Estepona

We will miss those beautiful views....the blue sky....the sea......!!!
