We had an absolutely fabulous time at the Marbella. This unit was beautifully decorated. Everything exceeded our expectations. Without a doubt the highlight was the terrace. The view was spectacular. We ate as many meals as we could on the outdoor dining set (often getting food delivered!). The kitchen was also well equipped. The bathrooms and bedrooms were all very comforting and inviting. We stayed with our two children and they had a blast. They were in the pool and at the beach all day ... then they had enough space to lounge about in the apartment when they needed down time. The owner, Giovanni, was more than courteous. He answered all our questions and more. HIGHLY recommend for a Dominican vacation as luxurious as the resorts (maybe more?), but more authentic and spacious.
