This is one of Marbella's oldest hotels. Ever since it was created, it has kept its original location (even though it used to stand right beside the sea) and size. It has also managed to retain some of its original guests, who've been spending every summer here for the past 30 years. In the low season, however, it is primarily businessmen who frequently come for a stay. Once you arrive at the hotel, forget about your car: you won't need it to go for a dip in the sea or to enjoy Marbella (sightseeing, drinks, shopping, etc.), as all of this is easily accessible on foot. There is a public car park a short distance from the hotel or you can use one of the hotel's five designated parking places, but you'll have to pay a daily rate of £10 for these. The hotel has Wifi access but you have to pay for this as well. The lounge in the common area includes a computer (£5 per hour). The clientele consists mainly of holidaymakers and Spanish guests in the summer, whereas in the winter it primarily includes businessmen and tourists from England and Finland. Therefore, the Lima offers free Spanish newspapers (local press), as well as Finish and English newspapers to its guests. The hotel also offers (free of charge) a complete guide to golfing in Andalusia to guests who enjoy the sport. You should also know that you can buy game rights on the hotel's Internet site. There is a shuttle service that will take you to the surrounding golf courses or to the airport, but it is also available to guests for an extra charge. A beauty parlour, some 100m from the Lima, has a partnership with the establishment and offers treatments such as massages, hair removal sessions, hydromassages, etc.
