    Overview 6.70 /10

    Built in 1979, the Jardines del Mar residence is made of 4 buildings of 7 and 11 levels, connected between them at levels 1 and 4. Level 4 corresponds to the reception floor. It is quite sad anddark and placed in the lower ceiling hallway. The corridors that offer a reading area, the living-rooms and the apartments are long and also quite dark. Fortunatly, the outdoor spaces are much more welcoming since the residence presides over the beautiful tropical garden. Since they are located at the end of the small artificial valley, there is an open outlook. It is in the middle of the grass areas, planted by palm trees, that the two small round pools (not heated) are located. The larger (860 ft) is for adults, the smaller one (322 ft) is for children. They are open from 11 AM to 7 PM. You can rent a beach chair and a mattress for 2.5 euros per day per person.

    Food and drink 5.95 /10

    The residence offers a cafeteria with breakfast served buffet-style from 9 AM to 11 AM. To be used more as a backup than to have a brunch for the choice is limited. You can also find an " la carte" restaurant, open in high season for lunch. This room is a little dark and decorated summarily with wooden tables covered by red tablecloths matching the double curtains. The space between the tables and the limited capacity of the room allow you to eat in some kind of privacy. Each day you will be offered a different menu. About 8 euros for a meal, not including the drinks.

    Beach 6.20 /10

    The residence is located 820 ft away from the public beach of Costa Blanca. Located in the urban zone of Marbella, it lays out on 1.5 miles for an average width of 147 ft. It it bordered by a promenade recently built. The surroundings are not really squandered by the constructions on the verge of the sea, but there is only one city beach. The sand is fine - ochre-grey colour. The water is clean (Blue Flag obtained in 1992) and the beach is cleaned every day by the municipality. It is supervised in summer. Here you will find showers and public toilets. 1,640 ft away, a private boat club will allow you to practice different water sports like windsurfing, jet-skiing or pedalo. You can also use the beach-club services of the Gran Melia Don Pepe (beach chairs and mattresses). Two ''chiringuitos'' (beach chairs) are located right nearby.

    To know

    Stay away from the apartments with a view of the Sierra since the mountain doesn't belong to the back-plan of the landscaping. On the first plan, there are the Congress Palace and the highway.

      A small decent establishment that rather focuses on conviviality than on comfort. It will seduce golf beginners and small budget people seeking out of date charm. In return, the beaches are quite far away.

      If you want to spend active holidays, you should choose this very conventional hotel, half-way between the club-hotel and the animated hotel. It offers lots of sports activities and games, on the site or on the verge of the sea.

      This little family-oriented establishment is located at the heart of Marbella, a few metres from the beach. It is a rather modest establishment that stands out for its friendly atmosphere and the French cuisine served in its refined restaurant. The facilities on offer are a bit poor and there is not much in the way of leisure activities.

      Our opinion: this is the best hotel in the area. This establishment, member of the ''Leading Hotels of the World'' has been conceived like a traditional Andalusian village. Its comfort, the catering and its tennis club make it a great location for gourmets, sports lovers...and the jet-set.

      The Vincci Estrella del Mar is a luxury hotel located 5 miles from Marbella, at the heart of the Costa del Sol. Admittedly it's not on the seafront but we did like the free Internet access, the various swimming pools, the spa, the spacious and comfortable guest rooms, and the three restaurants. A free shuttle bus takes guests to the beach club 5 minutes away. A select and trendy place where you'll find the spa and two of the restaurants, as well as a superb beach.
