Linda is the perfect host and her majestic villa offers fantastic rooms and suites. We stayed on the lowest floor and our suite had 2 bedrooms, a large living room and terrace and even a private sauna. The views from the hotel are spectacular. The dinners and breakfast are delicious and better than most similar accommodations provide. We highly recommend... More

We stay for 10 days in this beatiful hotel. Very private and special place. The villa is large and comfortable, nice decoration. Different experience. Up in the mountain looking at the sea. A place to relax and enjoy with full details, 5m from Marbella. The staff is helpful and friendly. Delicious breakfast. We have dinner as well several times... 4... More

If you want to be in the hub of Marbella resort, a stone's throw from the beach, stop reading now. The Urban Villa is set high in the mountain above Marbella commanding superb views over the coast, with Gibralter and Africa visible on a clear day. The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed, and the food of good quality. There is... More

Great Location, wonderful views, fantastic room, amazing food & lovely people. King Suite was spectacular! Location gave great access to surrounding area and some beautiful towns & villages. You do need a car to get around as it is located on the hillside overlooking Marbella. We ate at the hotel every evening of our 7 night stay and had excellent... More

Just what we wanted after a particularly stressful 6 months. Relaxed above and away from the bustle of Marbella during the day and drove 10 minutes down the hill into the town for dinner. We took the de luxe suite and it lived up to its name. Particularly lovely terrace with spectacular view and sun all day until 5pm. The... More

The Urban Villa In one sentence: Great place, great view and great service. Great place The interior is very rustic and luxurious, which results in a warm welcome every time upon arriving "home". Best beds we've slept on when on a vacation and more than enough pillows to choose from which is very nice. Great view From all the balconies... More

We reserved for 2 nights and stayed 3! We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite, and it was exactly as described. Large super clean bathroom. The view from every room is truly spectacular. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of cheese, meats, fruits, biscuits and eggs. Great coffee too. We used the Villa as a base to visit Marbella, and Gibralter,... More

This is a hidden gem, was worried about getting there being up hill but it was well worth it; great food, beautiful views and attentive staff. I will be coming back for a yoga retreat in November, couldn't think of a better spot for it!
