A magnificent hotel with a rich historical past. The tranquility, the comfort of the rooms, the high standard catering and the thalassatherapy centre make this place one of the best in the area. A true favorite!

    Location 7.5 /10

    The Marbella Club is located at the exit of Marbella, on the Malaga-Cadix road. A bus will get you to the city centre in 10 minutes (2 miles). Malaga airport is 38 miles away from the hotel. Coming from the airport, you will spend about 40 to 55 minutes driving, depending on the traffic.

    Accommodation 9.45 /10

    Spread out in small buildings in the heart of the park, the rooms and suites are very comfortable and richly decorated. In particular, you will notice their beautiful wood framework. While the setting and the decoration change from one room to another, the country-style ambience and comfort are the same everywhere. Here you will find air-conditioning, a satellite TV, two telephones with a direct line for international calls, a filled mini-bar (drinks and appetizers), and a big electronic safe. Bathrooms are remarkably equipped with: a bathtub (and shower cabin in the suites), a washbasin, a toilet (separated in some of the rooms), a hair-dryer, bathrobes, slippers, a weight scale, a hairbrush, welcome products for men and wemen... All rooms offer a nice fitted out terrace, of a variable size, depending on the category of the room. However, it is a pity they are located so close and in front of the neighbours' terrace in some of the rooms.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    The Marbella Club is an old private residence conceived by the Prince von Hohenlohe himself in 1946. Transformed in a hotel in 1954, the establishment is today a member of the ''Leading Hotels of the World''. It stretches out in the middle of 10 acres of gorgeous exotic gardens that go down to the verge of the sea. Respecting the Andalousian architectural style, the hotel includes 121 rooms and suites as well as several villas out of which some of them have a private pool. The main building, hosting the reception area, is the former princely residence. This is a beautiful residence with heavy woodworks which history is retraced through an old photos exhibition. Nearby, the winter bar, very frequented by the jet-set, is a comfortable place, cosy and offering a nice smell of wood fire. Outside, you will find the 2 pools of the hotel. They are surrounded with lawns where deckchairs and wooden sunshades are spread out. Towels and matresses are lent for free. With its 8,600 square feet of up to date facilities, the thalassatherapy centre, located on the verge of the sea, offers lots of treatments like therapies, massages or beauty care.

    Food and drink 9.70 /10

    Breakfasts are served buffet-style in the Winter Garden restaurant, from 8.00am to 11.00am. The buffets are very copious and of good quality. Both in summer or winter, you can stay on the restaurant's terrace. For lunch, you can choose between the excellent buffets of the beach club, the snack-bar menu or the beach restaurant. For dinner, you should go at the Grill restaurant. By employing a Michelin starred chef (Juan Galvez), the Marbella Club offers a gastronomic menu with refined Spanish and international specialities. Expect about ?50 (£40) for a full meal without the drinks. At last, you can try something new by tasting the Asian Fusion cuisine of the MC Cafe.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The Marbella Club obtained the right of a ''private'' beach from the town council. Even if the verge of the sea is bordered by a promanade, you will not be (theoretically) disturbed by the vacationists coming from somewhere else. To get here, you should cross over the entire complex, especially if you are stayin close to the entrance. The natural grey sand from the Costa del Sol is replaced by imported yellow sand. The beach is quite sloping, especially on the edge of the water. A pontoon, fitted out with at one of its ends a small esplanade, allows you to easily access the sea. In a corner of the beach you will find the beach club of the hotel offering deckchairs (free), sunshades, showers, a snack and sports amenities. As the Marbella Club privileges tranquility over leisure, you have to go to the beach club of the Puente Romano hotel (1,600 feet away) to practice motorised nautical sports. The beach is supervised in summer.

    To know

    As a guest of the Marbella Club, you can enjoy all the sportive facilities of its ''twin'' hotel, the Puente Romano, located along the beach 10 minutes away from here (1,600 feet). Here you will be offered 10 tennis courts, a paddle court, a fitness centre and a gym centre. The Marbela Club offers also a private golf, located 15 mn away from here, the Marbella Club Golf Resort, that just added up to its facilities an equestrian centre.

      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.

      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.

      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.
