We stayed at the Urban Villa over our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The weather was kind to us in March, Marbella is a beautiful town and we had some marvellous beach lunches. Our room in the Urban Villa was huge and we enjoyed the jacuzzi. Linda and her delightful staff looked after us very well - arranging... More

Most beautiful stay (Relax Suite) (with sea view!), swimming pool at our door step, to wake up with view over beautiful Marbella, the sea, the mountains and even Gibraltar and North-Africa on your birthday is a rare treat. Linda spoilt us with a champagne breakfast, her hospitality really made my my birthday very special, even down to organising a super... More

My wife and I stayed here in July. Sadly, the visit was not a success, and there were many problems that led to us leaving earlier than planned. First impressions are of course important. Our first of the villa was a skip full of dirt in the entrance, and two workers with shovels. I do feel we should have warned... More

Had 3 nights at this wonderful B&B/ boutique hotel. Everything was high quality from furnishings to service. Breakfast was always delicious and sourced locally and if you have a chance try the dinner. Finally, we stayed with two young children, which couldn't have been easier with adjoining rooms.

Perched high on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean, with a view of Gibraltar in the hazy distance, the Urban Villa is worth the effort to get to. While only a brief car ride from the centre of Marbella, it's a quiet and relaxing eyrie. Your Hostess, Linda, will welcome you warmly and treat you to an extravagant continental breakfast, which...

The Urban Villa is the perfect place to stay when visiting Marbella and its surroundings! The place itself is just beautiful, very nicely decorated and with magnificent views. It is located in the mountain so it is very peaceful and quiet but at the same time you are just a short drive from Marbella Old Town and the beach. The... More

We thought that being outside Marbella would spare us from the nightmare that I got every time I thought of the costa del sol. Fortunately, we were right. However, Urban Villa is something of a double edged sword. On the one one hand, the villa itself is fantastic. It's a modern build in the old style. Think plenty of wood... More

The Urban Villa was a wonderful place to stay in Marbella! The villa itself is beautiful, but the panoramic views of Marbella are the real treat. Linda was so nice and helpful and has great recommendations for restaurants, things to do, etc. Also, the breakfast spread was one of the highlights - delicious selection of charcuterie and cheese along with...

Had a great time at the urban villa! Beautiful location, beautiful bulding, our room (King suite) was a dream - furnished with attention to detail, very comfortable sunbeds on the terrace, beautiful grounds, beautiful view, very clean. Quit on the hill but only 15 minutes to Marbella. Thank you Linda!

The Urban Villa is a great place with greats views en great service. Our room was very basic, but for us it was fine. The minute we stepped out for breakfast, someone came in and cleaned our room. Loved it. Breakfast was great, always fresh orangejuice and croissants. The view was great! Staff friendly and always ready to help. Loved... More
