My Husband and I booked Brian's Apartment for 8 nights in June as our first ever family holiday with our 10 month old son. After what seemed like endless research I found Brian's listing for Marazul here www.homeaway.co.uk/53341 and thought it looked perfect. We had never actually done a self catering holiday before (pre baby we loved nothing better than...

We always holiday in self catering accommodation rather than hotels because of the freedom it offers so we have stayed in quite a few! We stayed in Brian's apartment - E5 (link to the website: www.homeaway.co.uk/53341) - everything about it was first class! It has everything you could need: aircon (hot & cold), garden area to enjoy the sun, large...

We chose the Mar Azul as we had seen the outside (very nice) having visited the area for the last 3 years staying close ish in a hotel. Maybe our expectations were too high, but tired is my best description – the communal areas like gym and spar are very poor (if open), un-staffed and unloved. The grounds and pool...

Brian50, Owner at Mar Azul Resort Estepona, responded to this review

I understand the situation that Jonathen found himself in, and to point, I sympathize with him. The main problem.....choice of apartment. Unlike the majority of holiday resort accommodation, the rooms, or in this case entire apartments, are independently owned. So, the apartments can vary with regard to :- condition, furnishing, decoration, cleanliness, the location within the resort (which will effect...

This was our second visit to Mar Azul and Brian's beautiful apartment. The resort is near perfect with plenty of places to sit and relax. The apartment has everything you need and more.

When my wife suggested that we rent an apartment instead of a hotel, I was not overly convinced... However, I can now say that we could not have made a better decision! The D11 apartment had a beautiful sea view and it was in a great condition. It had 2 rooms, which to be honest was 1 too many for...

Hi. My family and I just returned from Brian Colling's Apartment, E5 at Mar Azul, Estepona. Brian's apartment really is lovely. The best complement I can give it is that we felt utterly at home, didn't want to leave and are already thinking about when we can go back. The furnishings are to a really high standard, the beds are...

May 16 to May 23rd 2014 The MARAZUL-Resort at Estepona has long been a favourite of ours, and we have very much enjoyed holidays there, for 6 years, almost since it was built.

We arrived at the exclusive MAR AZUL resort for a pre-booked 2 bedroom apartment for the 4 of us. We stayed in apartment E2.

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
