The narrow streets of the old town give it a charm way beyond the razmatazz of the sea front restaurants. Better value restaurants off the main squares. La Tasca was brilliant value.

Such a change from staying in the hotels near the boulevard and this pitoresque old town, not more than 250 yards from the beach. Some very good restaurant, moslly small with very good foot and service. Also some small hotels and shops.

You must go here when you visit Marbella and take a few hours to walk around and get lost in the streets. Go to Orange Square and the church and have a lovely day there. The Flamenco show is great and there are many restaurants to choose from.

Lovely old town feel and brilliant restaurant, cafes and shopping. Beautiful churches and quiet squares so something for everyone. Open late so don't miss out!

Great shopping finds: leather goods from Spain are a must and some great spots around the Plaza de Naranja for tapas!

Beautiful square in the Old Town surrounded by orange trees. Ideal for a quick menu lunch or just a jug of Sangria and some olives.

I am SO GLAD we decided to take a week of our trip to Spain this past summer, in the Costa Del Sol to stay in warm and wonderful Marbella! On the beautiful coast with miles of walking path along the beach, it is about 10 Kms to walk from our hotel El Fuerte in Marbella to Porto Banus, a... More

What a lovely area. With lots of excellent bars and restaurants, the cobbled area really is a great place to visit. Food choices are many and there are bar options to suit all tastes.

I have just returned from a ten day stay at the El Fuerte Hotel in Marbella, I was there with my mother & a friend, we checked in to the hotel early, Jose checked us in he was very pleasant & courteous, our room wasn't ready so we were given vouchers for a complimentary drink, which we enjoyed sitting out....

Really enjoyed wandering around the narrow streets. Had churros and hot chocolate in Orange Square, mmmm. Lots of lovely shops, didn't have time to explore properly as we were only on a weekend break so that gives me the perfect excuse to go back next year!
