4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel/guest house was recommended by my Lonely Planet guide book and I am glad I took the recommendation. The whole place is an old villa that has been converted into a guest house. It is filled with tiled floors and antiques. The staff was very friendly and tried their best to help me with my numerous questions and requests.... More

We spent 5 nights and 6 days at this picturesque Portuguese styled guest house. We stayed in the Moghul suite. The room was lovely big and very spacious with stylish furnitures. The room was attached to a grand courtyard. After our everyday hectic sightseeing and travel, upon our return we found the guest house very calm, soothing and quiet amidst... More

This was my second visit to the place. Sadly it was a disappointment. My first stay was excellent. I wanted my husband to see the old Portuguese house and was excited that we had got the rajsthani suite. The airport taxi was a fiasco. In my first visit no taxi had turned up and this time they did but a... More

I am very sorry that you found your second visit with us disappointing! Mario who is no longer with us, forgot to call you a taxi until the last minute. That is why ypu had a long wait at the airport. We have a new receptionist his name is sajjin. The geckos are harmless lizards, that eat mosquitos. They are... More

Apart from the innumerable geckos (i am petrified of them and one didnt let me sleep as it made too much noise), my stay here was perfect. The house in itself is beautiful and i am sucker for old portugese homes and heritage buildings be it anywhere. I stayed in the Rajasthani Suite last weekend and the rooms are clean... More

We spent three nights at this wonderful restored house and experienced good service, friendly staff and tasteful food. The room was very clean and our only suggestion for improvement would be to instal one or two hammocks in the wonderful courtyard.

We stayed as a family of 2 adults and 2 children for 2 weeks in the Rajastani suite this April. I went on the positive reviews in the lonely planet guide and trip advisor- and so glad I did. Marbella is a lovely picturesque, quiet, relaxed place to stay- friendly and great location for siquerim beach. The staff are very... More

The guest house was pretty decent , neat and clean. Food was freshly cooked and very tasty. It was very peaceful and relaxing. I felt the bed quality should have been better. Some of the staff were bit rude at one point of time when we asked to speed up the cooking as some of us had to leave for... More

I apologize for Raymond, of reservations, for not clarifying that the penthouse suite has air conditioning only in the bedroom, so the lounge divans had to be squeezed into it to accommodate everybody. I’m sure it was not too comfortable, especially when the ac stopped working in the middle of the night, even though we had just installed all new... More

I was impressed looking at the website and booked the hotel. It was supposed to be an old Portuguese mansion - far from it. It is nice though but not Portuguese or a mansion for that matter. I arrive at night and grumpy fellow (Krishna) doesn't even offer to help with heavy luggage I arrived with - he was kind... More

I was a bit surprised about this negative review and questioned my staff about it. Krishna, our night watchman, who has never been found drinking on duty, assured me that he greeted this guest with the usual courtesy, but he did have to request him to move his car, as it was blocking the parking area. On the two following... More

Marbella guest house stands tall in a quiet residential alley in the lane next to Taj Vivanta (Fort aguada). It is a huge bungalow with spacious rooms and a common dining room/restaurant with an adjoining kitchen. What's interesting about Marbella guest house is the humble staff and the wonderful service. Despite the fact that it doesn't have any fancy facilities... More
