“Cheap, cheerful and great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

Excellent location, great to have kitchen in apartment and then also restaurant and room services if wanted. Staff friendly, rooms clean, kitchen also clean but due to decor looked grubby. Clean towels daily and nice sea room view. Tv in room with safe also.

Situated right on the beach, the location of the Puerto Azul is perfect - there's even a gate from the pool area right onto the promenade. The apartments are spotless and comfortable and the kitchen area in particular is well stocked with decent equipment for the self caterer.

The majority of the young crowds visiting the Marbella area tend to migrate to Puerto Banus for their nightlife but as accommodation here can be pricey, it seems many stay in Marbella itself and certainly when we were there we encountered many of the stag and hen crowds. Consequently you should be prepared to be woken in the early hours (4-5am in our case) by drunken revellers. To add to the problem, the plumbing is also noisy enough to wake the dead.

The pool area is small and cramped so we didn't bother hanging around for long. Meals are obtainable from the adjoining restaurant for a reasonable price although the cafe/bread shop Cripan round the corner does excellent, cheap coffee and croissants and there are plenty of good restaurants throughout the town for other meals. Try Valenciana for excellent tapas.

Room Tip: No guarantees of a quiet night so bring earplugs.

Stayed here with a group for a hen do. Arrived and rooms were spacious and clean. Bathroom was big and full of toiletries which was great! Balcony was huge and overlooked the sea which was lovely. Only negative was there wasn't enough hot water, I was 2nd in the shower on 2 occasions and hot water went off on me both times. Had to wait 40-50 minutes for it to heat up again! Luckily we used our mates shower when in a rush. No kettle but a coffee maker.

Customer service was excellent - great help when ordering taxis and a minibus for 10 of us. Very friendly!

Pool area was tiny but it was usually quiet so we managed to get a spot. Pool was a lovely cool down and a lovely view to the sea. Waiter service around the pool was a bonus :)

Overall a lovely place to stay and would recommend for all ages.

Great location, newly renovated, spotless clean.
Stayed for 3 nights and would definitely stay again.

Only downside... Very small pool but hotel is right on the beach front so wasn't all bad

While making the reservation online, I google mapped the aparthotel, which showed in being situated pretty close to the sea....but when I arrived, I found out google was not that accurate, and it was located right smack dab on the beach! And for the extremely reasonable price, having a palce on the beach/boardwalk was awesome!
Staying here made everything so much easier! First of all the location let me get to just about everywhere I wanted to go to by just walking, and Marbella is such a beautiful city that it's best to walk everywhere to see everything better! The only times I needed to use a bus was to visit Puerto Banus, and on a day trip to Morocco!
The room was pretty basic, but being an aparthotel, it had a simple kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom and good sized balcony with a view of the sea! And everything clean when arriving and cleaned every day! Having the kitchen not only saved money cooking there, but everyday we visited the local fish and produce market (20 min walk) and cooked up lunches and dinners much better than we could have purchased in an expensive restaurant!
When returning to Marbella someday I will only stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the ocean. Some rooms just have a view of the neighboring condo...(ie...
