The Marbella Playa has two pools close to the beach, plus a bar right beside the sand. Waterslides spill into the smaller of the two pools, and there’s a pirate ship play area for children. Choose between a buffet place and an à la carte restaurant for dinner, before you relax with a drink at one of the bars.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
Pick up a putter and try your hand at minigolf*, or have a game on the sandy volleyball court. You can also try water polo, archery and table tennis.
A hotel-run kids’ club keeps younger children entertained, and there's also a club for teens. A pirate ship play area occupies a spot beside the beach, where little ones can pretend to sail the seven seas.
