    Very stylish hotel

    We visited this hotel during the busy Semana Santa religious week. This review caters to the North American market. The staff was very helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. The elevator service is quite novel ,and the rooftop bar is spectacular. Location cannot be beat, close to the port and the gardens on the street before reaching the port. We ate at Gusto's for Italian food twice after having enough tapas and paella during the week. Calle larios is very close and has everything and more. I had one issue with the hotel concerning the breakfast, as I had received multiple prices about it's cost. The breakfast is good but pricey (22-25 Euros) On a humorous note , I noticed a McDonalds near by and thought I would give it a try. It doesn't open until 10:00 a.m! and an Egg McMuffin is not on the menu. Who knew? Good value for Marriot Rewards members.

    Amazing view & location but poor soundproofing

    As other reviews have mentioned, the location is very convenient, and the views are superb. Staff members were very attentive and kind; thank you very much. The welcome treats were very much appreciated. The breakfast area was nice, and the breakfast was okay. The Hotel is not well soundproofed, and it is getting rather dated.

    Top marks

    April 2024 We stayed at the Marriot for 3 nights. We were upgraded as we booked in. All of the staff were very helpful, politer and friendly. To have porters at the door to opne aND carry our cases ranks as 5*. Breakfasts were ample with a wide range of cereals, ham and eggs etc. Our room was spotless but was, perhaps, a little limited on storage space (minor quibble). Overall our stay was value for money, we would certainly book there again if in Malaga and recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Malaga. Written April 5, 2024

    NOT Marriott- Avoid at all cost !

    Avoid at all cost! The hotel is horrible, from top to bottom. It is very old and outdated. The front desk Staff is top! But that’s it… Cleaning is horrible, bar/restaurant staff as well. We paid 545 euros / night and had no heating! We received a mobile heater. :))) Incredible!!! (See photo) This is for sure NOT Marriott !!!

    As central as you can be

    Decent place with a great location, its close to absolutely everything. Room with a view over the harbour is what I would go for. Didn't eat or drink at the hotel so can't comment. Never had any issues with the elevators so not sure what all the previous reviews were all about.
