Our opinion: this is the best hotel in the area. This establishment, member of the ''Leading Hotels of the World'' has been conceived like a traditional Andalusian village. Its comfort, the catering and its tennis club make it a great location for gourmets, sports lovers...and the jet-set.

    Location 7.5 /10

    The Puente Romano is located at the exit of Marbella, on Malaga-Cadix road. A bus will get you in the town centre in 10 minutes (2.5 miles). Malaga airport is 40 miles away from the hotel. Coming from the airport, you will spend about 40 to 55 minutes, depending on the traffic.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    Since the hotel has been conceived as a holiday residence, the rooms are mainly spacious (485 ft² for the standard double rooms) and neatly decorated. The main building includes all the standard rooms, spread out on two levels, while the suites are located in the villas. The interior is decorated in Spanish and Moorish style with bamboo furniture, marble floor, soft cushions and warm colours. The comfort is optimal: air conditioned, filled mini-bar, satellite TV, electronic safe and telephone with direct line. The bathrooms, decorated with azuleros, also offer complete facilities: bathrobes, welcome products in large number, make-up mirror, hair-dryer. Toilets and a bidet is located in a corner. Only the suites offer a shower cabin plus a bathtub. All the rooms offer a private patio overlooking the gardens or the sea for the suites and the Sierra for the standard rooms.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    Open in 1979, renovated in 2003, the Puente Romano hotel bears its name from an old roman bridge, located in a 12-acre park, vestige of the road that connected Rome to Cadix. It is decorated like the traditional Andalusian villages with 26 small two-level buildings hosting 274 rooms. The setting, the decoration and the spreading out of the facilities are very practical. The hotel, full when we were here, was nevertheless very peaceful, quiet. The main building includes a very comfortable bar, La Cascada, with a chimney (in good functioning condition) and an indoor patio. Every evening, it is animated by a piano player. Nearby, a small tower surmounted by a pigeon house opens out in the heart of the gardens with subtropical vegetation - more than 400 species of different plants. Hibiscus, eucalyptus, banana trees and other bamboos are so many that they isolate the bungalows from one another. Crossed over by the Nagueles River, the park also has a few water falls, pools covered by verdure, streams and onrushes. Beside the pool for kids and the two outdoor heated pools (3,230 and 1,290 ft² - free beach chairs and towels), there are 10 tennis courts, a paddle field and a stadium of 3,000 spectators for tennis competitions. The Tennis Club also includes fitness rooms and aerobics where you can have stretching, bodybuilding, yoga, Spanish dances, karate, tai-chi classes... A third pool of 1,290 ft² is finally available at the beach-club, located close to the beach. As an anecdote, this luxury hotel received a large number of important people like Alain Delon, Tom Cruise, Barbara Streisand, Sean Connery or Princess Brigitte of Sweden.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    Located next to the Roman bridge, the Cafe El Puente offers a shaded terrace that presides over the gardens of the hotel. Open for the 3 meals, here you are served a traditional Andalusian cuisine and international dishes. Small copious continental breakfast are served buffet-style, lunches and dinners are served "à la carte". In summer, the Beach Club Restaurant, located close to the beach, serves great buffet lunches well known in all Costa del Sol. It is an opportunity to try a Mediterranean cuisine offering a large choice of starters, meats, fish and homemade desserts. A delight! For dinner, you can try Italian specialities of the Roberto restaurant. Note that in summer time, the restaurant named La Plaza, becomes the main restaurant of the hotel (international cuisine). Some evenings, show-dinners are organised here in the amphiteatre with flamenco groups and other professional shows. The evening is extended by a dancing evening. Finally, during the day, sports lovers can have a snack at the Tennis Club.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The hotel obtained the approval from Marbella City Hall, to use on its own the public beach in front of which it is located. Because of this, the place is quiet and you will easily get away from the high summer compactness. The very large beach is bordered by a promenade that goes along the entire littoral of Marbella. The sand is yellow and is mixes up with small pebbles on the verge of the sea. In the hotel's beach-club, you can practice different water sports like jet-ski, kayak, water ski, catamaran or windsurfing. You can also take sea rides in a motor ship. Beach chairs, mattresses and the towels are paying (9 &euros; per day). When you're starving, you can taste the grilled fish of the day at the Cafe del Mar. Here you can also have salads, served buffet-style. It is open from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM and from 9 PM to 1 o'clock in the morning.

    To know

    The clients of the Puente Romano can take advantage of discount prices on the services of the ''brother'' hotel, the Marbella Club. Mainly the treatments, the therapies and massages in the thalassatherapy centre and the access to the Marbella Club Golf Resort, an 18-hole golf courses, embellished by an equestrian centre, located at 15 minutes from here.

      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.
