Vincci Seleccion Estrella del Mar
This chic hotel has a great pool scene just steps from the beach. And then there’s the beach club, complete with spa.
This stylish hotel is just a couple of minutes’ walk from one of Marbella’s best beaches. It’s got three big pools back at base and two more at the nearby beach club which you can use for a bit extra.
Food-wise, there are two restaurants – a buffet and an à la carte. Both serve international dishes with a Mediterranean twist. Plus there’s a wine bar which sometimes hosts live music as well as a pool bar.

fabulous time here celebrating my birthday in marbella for the weekend. hotel is beautiful staff are friendly, helpful and attentive. the rooms are big and very stylish the moroccan theme decor is beautiful. i can not recommend this hotel highly enough. will stay here whenever in marbella.More
We spent 4 days at the hotel Xmas Day included in a deluxe room, which was very big and very comfortable. Excellent price for the hotel, weather was amazing compared to the uk weather, sunshine everyday around 24 degrees but chilly at night. We had breakfast but no other meals, breakfast was absolutely fantastic compared to some hotels. There is a lido/ spa, located a few minutes walk, less than 10 minutes, it’s really lovely with an infinity pool bar and spa, some things are additional costs but it’s not expensive ( I had read it was a distance... it’s not, and there’s a wee shuttle bus if you want or have kids etc) very nice area but not much to do, so you definitely need a car to go to Marbella or Puerto Banus. We went to Cabopino port and Marbella for drinks, taxis are mega cheap, only bad thing is taxi drivers for some reason drive like formula 1 drivers so be prepared for wacky races! The hotel staff were very pleasant and they really were attentive, breakfast staff were very friendly and our room was immaculately clean. We’d definitely stay again over winter, summer would be a lot busier so maybe not so quiet in the hotel.More
Wonderful staff, beautiful room with a view, absolutely amazing bath!
We stayed in the Hotel Vincci Selección Estrella del Mar over the Christmas holiday. The staff was wonderfully helpful in every way, from check-in, to providing a crib for our 18 month old daughter, to the breakfast buffet and everything else. Our room had an amazing view, we could even see Africa across the Mediterranean when the sky was clear! The bed was huge and comfortable, so much so that our daughter ended up in bed with us and not in the crib afterall. As we were celebrating with family who lived nearby we didn't have the chance to use the swimming pools, but even on Christmas day people were enjoying the sunny weather with a lay out by the pool, next time I will go swimming for sure! I also must commend the breakfast buffet. There was a little bit of everything, I especially liked the Healthy Corner with milk alternatives, soy products, and gluten free breakfast goodies. The fresh fruit was delicous and the selection was excellent quality all around.More
Beautiful place although not really 5*
Positive: Very nice property with several pools and a beautiful well kept garden. Very relaxed atmosphere, not very crowded thanks to the clever layout with the pools on different terraces in the garden. Lovely architecture, airy and open, it has a very nice Andalusian touch, not the standard boring international resort architecture. Room nice although not huge. Bathroom very spacious with separate toilet and big tub. Service and staff overall friendly and efficient, very kids friendly place overall. Close to the beach (3-5 minutes walk). Breakfast buffet is very good with wide range of options, also good range of healthy and even gluten free choices (but also with champagne and yummy unhealthy options). Not so great: We had a partial seaview room with balcony - emphasis is on „partial“, we barely could get a glimpse of the sea behind some bushes and trees. The property is about 3-4 blocks away from the beach and a bit uphil, overall you dont have the feeling to be really at the beach though. Dinner buffet was not great, we had experienced much better dinner buffets in other resorts. Dining / breakfast room is not very cozy, rather a bit like the food hall in a youth hostel. We did not find the location too great - yes, it is close to the beach but otherwise there is not much around. The resort is located close to a highway, so there is often a bit of background noise. It makes a good base to explore other places in Andalusia, but we felt that with this location neither really on the beach /coast line nor next to a town center, there are better options. If you have a car, there is a good choice of restaurants within a short drive though. In terms of service, we felt the place is good but not really up to 5 star standards - for example, no turn down service that I would expect in a true 5 star place. Overall: We had a good time and did like the place overall. Definitely a beautiful hotel and a nice holiday overall. However, we also felt that we had stayed in better places and did not think the place was really meeting the 5* expectations. Value for money was better in other „real“ 5* places we had stayed before. So we are not likely to go back.More
