We stayed at Villa Marbella for 6 nights in June and can't say enough about the location and hospitality of Marcos and his staff. We stayed in the Lhasa apartment, which was amazing and just 5 minutes from the main building. The 2 storey apartment had a small kitchen which was stocked with water, wine, beer and soft drinks as... More

We just returned from a two week trip to the UK and Spain, ending our journey at La Villa Marbella. In this instance, we most certainly saved the best for last. Traveling with our two sons (19 and 22), we elected to stay in the 3-bedroom Sarawak Apartment which is located about 60 seconds from the door of the main... More

We stayed for a week in June 2009 in the Shanghai Room in the Courtyard building. Like other reviewers we found the room to be lovely, tastefully decorated and with everything you could need: air con, satellite tv, minibar/fridge, safe, tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer, beach towels, bathrobes. The bed is a queen size Chinese four poster which is very comfortable... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks at this lovely hotel and we found everything perfect. It was slap bang in the middle of the Old Town but it was so peaceful and tranquil that you could have been in the middle of the countryside. We were in the Courtyard just down the street from the main building and... More

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at La Villa Marbella - thanks to the outstanding hospitality of Marcos and his team. They really make you feel welcome and provide an individual service we never had experienced before. The lovely, stylish rooms are very quiet and beautifully decorated, so we instantly felt at home. In addition a great breakfast is... More

Just returned from a 4 day stay at this super boutique hotel run by Marcos Torres and his staff. He sets the tone with a great friendly welcome, charm and good humour. This is picked up by all of his team who provide the best and most friendly service we have received in many years of holiday making. La Villa... More

We stayed only one night en route north, but would have happily stayed longer after Marcos' & Rose's superb hospitality. They are obviously both passionate about their hotel and get as much enjoyment from guest satisfaction as the guests themselves. Marcos' extensive previous industry experience is very apparent in the excellent room fitout and attention to detail. The personal touch,... More

Thanks Marco - We wanted to have somewhere to chill out for a few days on a brief trip to Marbella, and La Villa Marbella ticked every box. A little tricky to get to, but thats the beauty of having no cars so you have to park your car about 500 metres away, but someone will come and help you... More

We stayed for one night in La Villa Marbella and it was definitely the highlight of our Andalusia trip. Great and friendly staff, stylish rooms with a lot of cachet. We loved it and we hope to return for a longer stay very soon. You will not be disappointed and we can truly recommend La Villa Marbella as one of... More

My husband and I have just returned from a 3 night trip to La Villa Marbella. It richly deserves it's No 1 status. Marco and his team simply cannot do enough to make you feel welcome. The accomodation has been renovated to a very high standard and has the perfect balance of authenticity and comfort right in the heart of... More
