Following a short flight to Malaga, we hired a car and drove ourselves to Club Med Marbella rather than choosing a transfer. It is a simple drive and easy to find, you then have the freedom to tour the area should you choose to be independent. Alternatively, there are a range of interesting trips that can be booked from the resort.
As ever, we were given a warm Club Med welcome with refreshments on our arrival.
Our room overlooked the main pool, Marbella Town, and the glistening Mediterranean Sea. I also checked out the non-sea view rooms which were just as stunning with a wonderful colourful mountain view. The Andalusian colour schemes throughout the resort vary from floor to floor. Each piece of artwork throughout the resort is breathtakingly stunning.
The all-inclusive stunning Arab-Andalusian inspired restaurant has the most incredible view over the bay, and there is always plenty of choice for either indoor or outdoor seating. The choice is too vast to describe. Spanish paella and plenty of choice of European inspired dishes including numerous choices of meat, fish vegetables fresh salads, pizza, and pasta, all followed by exceptional patisserie, deserts, fresh fruit, and choices of ice cream daily. The top-quality wine is included with all your meals, and you have the choice of red, white, or rose along with still or sparkling water.
The choice of five pools around this lush resort including an indoor pool for the cooler weather means you always have somewhere to sunbathe or swim. Children have a choice of pools, and even have their own water play area and a zip-wire and mini-gold to keep the whole family entertained. The Children’s clubs are cleverly designed and even have their own sheltered pool for added activities.
Club Med Marbella has world experts in Trapeze and Circus skills ready to train all guests of every age and ability. The super skilled performers also produce a show for your evening’s entertainment which will blow you away.
We took a stroll up to the Zen pool, a quiet area for adults only where you are welcomed with a smile and a cool drink, coffee or freshly made fruit smoothly of the day. Drinks and snacks are provided throughout the day. The pool is a great size for swimming lengths or simply just to cool down. The Zen area offers stunning views of Marbella and the sea, and comfortable sun loungers’ beds in the sun or shade.
Club Med Marbella offers the best quality new tennis and Padel courts in the area. Top quality lessons are available for both types of tennis and golf. Padel tennis has been around Marbella for nearly 50 years but is a fairly new racket sport for us Brits. It is super fun and must be tried. There is an excellent archery area with lessons included in your stay along with a fully equipped gym and a range of fitness activities of all levels.
It is just a short stroll to the picturesque town and beach of Marbella, lined with white houses, golden beach, and plenty of shopping opportunities.
Club Med is located both close to Estepona and Torremolinos offer you the opportunity to discover Spain and immerse yourself in the fascinating and historical culture of the region.
We can offer you partial week at certain time of the year, so if you need a mood boosting spot of sunshine without 10 hours of flying – Club Med Marbella is your resort to book.
