I have now been staying at Brian's apartment E5 for the past 8 years, sometimes twice a year and my last holiday was at the end of June / July. I return year after year and have recommended it to other members of my family and friends because the apartment is so beautiful and well kept, and you could not...

Thank you Tara. I am pleased you mentioned Mimi and Marco in particular. Since reading a previous review about the management of the MARAZUL Resort, I have received various emails in support of Mimi and Marco, who are in charge of both the reception area and security, and about the other staff. I think it would be useful to share...

We have stayed in Mar Azul 5 times over the last 4 years. Pool complex is truly amazing for both adults and kids. This is the main reason why we have returned to Mar Azul. Pool Bar is great and owner Santi is great character and great with kids. Food is healthy and music always great. Unfortunately management of property...

I am the owner of apartment E5, and have been since Mar Azul was built 10 years ago. Mimi and her husband Marco have been in charge of security and reception throughout the last eight of those years, and it is not always an easy job for them. They are on the front line when conflicts arise. Of-course I respect...

So this was our 10th stay at Brian's apartment so this alone must speak volumes for a review. The apartment is beautifully kept and to a very very high standard. It is super luxurious with all mod cons and has everything you could possibly need. It is very spacious with a dining table and a big patio table outside on...

We have spent beautiful week in Mar Azul! Luxury apartments, huge swimming pool, great infrastructure - everything you need for a great time by the sea! June is very mild and not too hot and not too crowded. Carrefour is nearby, 10 minutes drive from Matbella.

Stanley: I really loved the apartment because it was right next to the pool and the pool was amazing. It was a shame the weather wasn't hot because it was February. I still got in the pool with my feet but it was freezing!! The apartment was great because there is also a place where you can play basketball and...

It's the 3rd time we stayed at Brian's E5 apartment, and we've already booked our 4th :-) It was the pool, beauty and beachfront/proximity-to-Estepona-location of the resort that first grabbed our attention, but it's the effort and up-keep of Brian's apartment that keeps us coming back. It's like a home from home (even the first time, given the clear instructions...

I know this stretch of Spanish coastline like the back of my hand having more or less grown up here. My family and I travel back to Marbella/Estepona annually and for families, this particular beachfront location is superb.

It is over 10 years since we have stayed in an apartment for our family holiday, previous experience being that facilities are basic, there are increased hassle factors, the potential of being let down by owners and the realty often does not match the promise.

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
