This is quite a large site just off the coastal motorway. Pitches vary in size and shape, some being quite sloping, and when it rains it can get quite muddy. There are plenty of pine trees for shade. The shower blocks are clean but in need of refurbishment. Water pressure is low and it takes a long time to heat up. However the showers are not push-button, which is a plus! The washing-up sinks have warm water but the laundry sinks have only cold. One of the washing machines was not working during our stay and people who had been on the site for a while said they'd reported it and nothing was done. However the reception staff were pleasant enough and security was good - you get a swipe card to work the entrance barrier. We can't comment on the restaurant as we didn't try it, and it was too early in the year for the swimming pool to be open.
There is a small shopping area at El Rosario, about 5 minutes' walk from the site, with a supermarket, newsagents, bar and hairdresser. A baker's van comes to the site twice a week. It's a bit of a hike to the beach, via a bridge over the motorway then through some pleasant suburban streets. The beach is very good and there are a number of beach bars. The proximity of the motorway means there is some traffic noise but it's not too intrusive. We weren't impressed with Marbella itself but there are some interesting places to visit inland, such as Mijas and Ronda.
