affordable luxury

We know Marbella well and have usually stayed in apartments but this year decided to give ourselves a treat by staying in a good hotel. We took the bed and breakfast option in the basic mountain view room. Absolutely fantastic hotel - very luxurious but not at all stuffy. The staff were courteous and extremely helpful. The pool and gardens were fantastic. It's this hotel every year for us now.

Wunderschönes und exklusives Hotel an Strand-Nähe und Nähe Marbella Altstadt. Sehr guter Service und feines Essen. Leider konnte man im Meer nicht schwimmen gehen, wegen der Quallen. Aber der Pool im Hotel war auch wunderschön zum Relaxen und Erholen.

Erg goed

Mooi klasse Hotel. Wel iets ouder. Kamers zijn zeer schoon en er word zelfs 'savonds nog gevraagd of je schone handdoeken nodig hebt. Mooi zwembad met veel en goede ligbedden. Als via het zwembad naar de boulevard loopt zit je met 7 min in het centrum en aan de boulevard van Marbella. Wij komen hier in de zomer zeker nog een keer terug. Het hotel is wel duur met de consumpties maar dat is het wel waard.
