We enjoyed the local owners and their families who visited Marbella on the weekend. During the week, it was very quiet and relaxing. Great place to unwind, read some good books. Security was excellent; insured resort guests not bothered by beach vendors. Not much in surrounding area but that was perfect for us! There was some seaweed washing in but we perceived this as nature not "dirty water" as others have commented. Swimming beaches adjacent to the resort. The resort is beautifully maintained with gorgeous grounds.
