Directions from Malaga Airport:
Drive slowly away from the airport following the signs for the E15/N340 road to Cadiz. Do NOT go over the first fly-over, keep to the right hand swing road by the San Miguel Brewery. When you pass the BWM showrooms, take the right hand turn towards Algercires / E15. When on the E!5 which has a number of tolls on it between Malaga and Estepona, keep on the toll roads to Estepona. First sign for Estepona (Este) at 157 KM, turn off and follow directions to first roundabout. Follow sign back towards Marbella N340 ...there is also a sign for the Kempinksi Resort Hotel and the Marriott Hotel. When you get back on the N340 take the FIRST slip road exit (it is not that obvious and is only 100yards from where you saw the Kempinksi sign at the rouandabout). Go along this slip road until you see the sign to MarAzul apart hotel and take this entrance into the resort
Directions from Gibraltar Airport:
Once you have passed through border controls and in to Spain and the town of LaLinea, set your mileage counter to nil and turn right.
You will come to the road that follows the coastline through the town - watch out for the speed bumps!
Continue following the coastline until you have to turn left. Continue following this road and at the second roundabout you will see a signpost for Malaga - turn right here.
At roughly 11KM, you need to exit to the right following the signpost marked N340/A7 Estepona/Malaga.
You will have the choice of following the Costa road (CN340/A7) or the Toll road (AP7). Both roads meet in Estepona so the choice is yours, although you do have to pay to travel on the Toll road. Whichever road you decide to take, continue to travel straight on, in the case of the Costa road, over several roundabouts.
At roughly 45KM, the Toll and Costa roads meet just before Estepona. Again,continue straight on but stay in the right hand lane and do not get back on to the Toll road as this will take you straight to Marbella.
Continue to follow this road. We are in KM 159 and you should take the first exit as soon as you pass the exit for Estepona (you can always see the number on the little posts.
If you see the Kempinski hotel on your right and you are still on the main road then you have gone too far - but not to worry --- just take the next exit (which is for Laguna Village) and turn back on yourself - back towards Estepona. You will then go past the Kempinksi again (this time on your left) - take the Estepona exit to once again turn back towards Malaga but this time - once you enter the main road - take the very first exit and this will bring you to the entrance of Mar Azul !
We recommend that you do hire a car to make the most of your holiday, however the resort itself has plenty around it to keep you very happy without any need for a car - it just depends on what type of holiday you enjoy.
Estepona is only 5 mins drive - you can either call a taxi or catch the bus (the same applies to Marbella). The car is useful if you want to do some grocery shopping, go exploring, go to other shopping areas and in general be free from having to get a taxi etc to get you around.
