We had booked a five night stay through Travel Republic, who I would seriously recommend for value breaks. No, I have no connection with them but I research prices all the time and they have never disappointed.
Firstly lets discuss the location of the Sultan Club Aparthotel. It is in one of the most exclusive areas of Marbella and is safe to walk around at nearly any time of the day or night. The Sultan has its own underground carpark but if you look there are always parking spaces on the surrounding streets at a far lower rate than parking in the Hotel's carpark. But beware the local Parking Warden takes his job very seriously so make sure you have a valid parking ticket on your vehicle.
The Sultans Reception is vast and quite cool and chic. Its a great place to chill out with great background music and very comfortable sofas and chairs. It has free Wi-Fi which is chargable at a daily rate in the rooms and in my opinion not worth it. Unless you have a serious amount of work to do just use Reception.
Check-In is efficient but not over friendly. English is spoken but slightly of the Manuel, Fawlty Towers variety. Can be quite amusing if you are fond of eavesdropping.
The rooms are large and if you go make sure you have one with a balcony. The balcony is huge with a table and four chairs and two sun-loungers. If you can get a pool side one you can relax in the sun from approx 4-9pm, but obviously depending on what time of year you stay.
We were staying as a couple and the apartments are for up to four people if you book that number. There are two large wardrobes in a seperate bedroom and you also have a large sitting room with a small kitchen at one end. It is enclosed and has all the basics you would require for that quick snack. You would not be able to cook Christmas Dinner in it but its not meant for that kind of use. There is a sofa, armchair and coffee table and the sitting room also has a table and chairs. Some reviewers comment on the slightly dated decor. They also mention that the table is heavy to move. What on earth they wished to do amazes me. You are not relocating to your new Costa home but staying in a Aparthotel.
Ok the curtains may not be to your taste, but you can live with it for a few days considering that this is Marbella and presumably you dont want to look at the curtains all day.
There is also a large bathroom with bath and shower and enough room to dance the Flamenco.
There is a large outdoor pool with sun loungers and a Spa. Very relaxing to sit around the pool without being overlooked by any local pervs.
The rooms are cleaned every day which is unusual for this type of accommodation.
The property is within five minutes walk to the beach and there is a small supermarket a couple of minutes from the front door.
All in all I would not hesitate to recommend the Sultan Club to anyone of any age. There are four lifts for the slightly less agile and the escape exit design is very impressive for Guests who worry about such things.
Marbella is one of the best destinations on the Costa Del Sol and the Sultan Beach is the place to stay for value and facilities.
The area has numerous Restaurants and Wine Bars within a five minute walk and there is no need for cabs.
