The Marbella is conveniently located within a few minutes of the airport, with direct access to the beach. Charlie's Car Rental is directly across the street which is where we rented our car. Walgreen's directly across the street, open 24 hours. Many souvenir shops and restaurants within walking distance. Convenient access to major road systems. We stayed in the East tower, 8th floor, which had a great view of the pool and ocean. Condo was very clean and was the perfect amount of space for 2 adults and 2 teenagers with a livingroom, dining area, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and nice sized balcony with 4 chairs and a table. The master bedroom was larger than I expected, plenty of closet and dresser space for clothing. TV in each bedroom and livingroom with cable and wifi. Loved having a washing/dryer located in the condo with laundry soap and dryer sheets provided. Plenty of bath towels and beach towels provided. A/C worked excellent. Nora even thought to put a small cooler in the closet for taking drinks to the beach/pool. The beach is public, but huge so there are no worries about finding room. Chair rental of $4 for the day was worth it if you planned to spend the whole day at the beach. You could also rent $20 umbrellas or use the palm trees for shade. Food venders on the beach were very reasonably priced - $2 chicken skewer, $3 hotdogs, $4 hamburgers, $6 marlin skewer, $3 empanadas, sandwiches, seafood, etc. We did the Banana Boat for $20 a person and the kids did dual parasailing for $120 for both right from the beach. There were kiteboarding, windsurfing, jet skis, and other water activities you could arrange right there on the beach. Inside the condo complex there was a large playground area for smaller children, picnic tables, and plenty of areas for grilling your own food. If you rent a car, Nora will provide you with a parking beeper to access the underground parking garage with your own personal parking spot so you don't have to fight for a parking spot on the road. If you are trying to decide between Marbella East or West, there isn't much of a difference except that East has the pool in front of it so it sits back just a little farther from the beach. All reservation arrangements/questions for the condo were done through email, payment was sent through mail with contract and Nora mailed the keys to my home a week before our trip. Overall we were very impressed with the size, amenities, price, and location of this property.
