A small decent establishment that rather focuses on conviviality than on comfort. It will seduce golf beginners and small budget people seeking out of date charm. In return, the beaches are quite far away.

    Location 7.22 /10

    The Artola Golf hotel is located right on the verge of the 4 lanes highway, at kilometre 194, between Marbella (7.5 miles) and Fuengirola (9 miles). The "Cobopino'' port is 1,640 ft from here and the closest beach is 1 mile away. Coming from Malaga airport, you will need about 45 minutes (21 miles).

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The access to the rooms is being done through corridors decorated with old golf clubs and images showing different games rules. The 35 rooms evoke the past rustic lifestyle - whitewashed walls and terra cotta floors. Each detail has carefully been taken care of, matching the lovely headboard made of azulejos and the mirrors paint by hand. Concerning comfort, expect only one heater, a telephone with direct line for international calls and a small satellite TV. The bathrooms are pretty cute; they offer a double ceramic vanity unit decorated by blue and yellow friezes. They offer a bathtub, a few welcome products and toilets and bidet area closed by a sliding door. Most of the rooms offer a small balcony with an open work design, fitted out with a table and garden chairs.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Artola Golf is an old inn, located where in the old times the horses relay used to be performed. Transformed in a hotel in 1954 and renovated in 1973, the establishment kept its bygone charm. For instance, the small paved yard that you cross over before you enter the reception. Fitted out with old wooden furniture, all the ground level of the hotel stays on three big stone slabs. The lobby is furnished in the same way, specially with an old improved cart. The bay windows overlook a nice floral patio with a waterfall fountain. Outside, a small park planted with grass, with wavy relief is divided into two parts. The low part was fitted out in a small golf (9 holes per 3), ideal for beginners and those who want to get trained. The high part is reserved for the pool (1,615 ft), equipped with a shower and a few beach chairs spread out on the grass areas. The children can wade in their small pool, overlooked by a fountain shapped as a dolphin.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Breakfasts are served as very simple buffet-style, served in a small room opening towards the pool and the patio. They are served from 8 AM to 10:30 AM. If you want to take your lunch in the hotel, you can eat at the Taberna, an " la carte" restaurant. Here you will find a varied choice of starters, meats, pastas, omelettes and desserts. In summer time, you can also find a selection of fish. Expect to spend about 30 euros per person for a full meal, including a bottle of wine. Outside the opening hours (from 11 AM to 4 PM), you can always resort to the menu of the snack-bar (sandwiches, tapas, hamburgers...). In the evening, the hotel offers a good selection of grills (meats and fishes), to try under the pergola of the patio. Meals are though served from 7:30 PM up until the end of the night if the Spanish '' fiebre'' catch the clients!

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The hotel is located quite far from all the beaches around. If you want to enjoy the Mediterranean, you should go to the Funny Beach, the large beach-club of Marbella. A direct access road (1 mile) allows you to get there. Here you can practice all water sports or you can do karting (paying). A little far away, you will find Cabo Pino beach whose main advantage is the location far from the urban constructions. In high season, the number of visitors is medium. The sand is golden and quite fine. Since the place is not very well protected against the wind, the sea is often stormy. There are lots of monitors that supervise the swimming in high season. As for the facilities, you will find places to rent sunshades from, but also showers, snack bars and pedalos. At last, for those who like it, be aware that there is a nautical area fitted out on the dunes, not very far from Cabo Pino port.

    To know

    The rooms with a view of the golf course are disturbed by the noise of the four lanes passing right aside from the hotel, while the rooms overlooking the pool and the gardens are located right above the barbecue: It is your choice!

      This little family-oriented establishment is located at the heart of Marbella, a few metres from the beach. It is a rather modest establishment that stands out for its friendly atmosphere and the French cuisine served in its refined restaurant. The facilities on offer are a bit poor and there is not much in the way of leisure activities.

      The Vincci Estrella del Mar is a luxury hotel located 5 miles from Marbella, at the heart of the Costa del Sol. Admittedly it's not on the seafront but we did like the free Internet access, the various swimming pools, the spa, the spacious and comfortable guest rooms, and the three restaurants. A free shuttle bus takes guests to the beach club 5 minutes away. A select and trendy place where you'll find the spa and two of the restaurants, as well as a superb beach.
