The Marbella Playa looks like a traditional Spanish village and you can choose to stay in the main hotel or the multi-coloured Andalusian cottages.
There’s plenty at the hotel for little ones. Waterslides swirl into the outdoor pool and they can start their own adventure in the pirate-themed playground. In the evening, expect pirate shows and a child-friendly cinema.
There’s a bar just steps away from the pool but, for the best sea views, visit the beach bar. The El Mirador buffet restaurant serves up international cuisine, while Mediterranean flavours are on the menu if you book a place at the a la carte.
