The advantage of staying at a same hotel more than once, is the possibility to note any change. This is one of those few hotels that doesn’t change, because improvement is hardly possible. All staff consistently makes you feel so welcome, that you regret to have to leave when your stay is over. The only minus point (still) is that... More

Management is very poor! The service overall around pool area is so bad that I ordered a drink and had to wait for an hour to get it! When I complained, the bar lady said "sorry I was taking my lunch amdni wasn't the one who took your order"!!!.. Paying this amount of money I expected the service is be... More

One of the great hotels of the world, winner Hotel of the year 2013-14 ! The place is magical , styled in a Romana Villa theme and it hits the mark. Rooms were excellent and the three golf courses looked amazing. Although I didn't play , we were here for a wedding . An Indian wedding in Spain, it was... More

Having travelled around the world it is rare to find a true 5* hotel with 1st class service. Villa Padierna is just this. The architecture of the hotel itself is stunning, making you feel like you could be anywhere in the world. The attention detail makes for a beautiful setting – the swimming pool is definitely the most beautiful and... More

As facilities goes this is rather near the top, you can't fault it. I have been using their facilities on a regular basis but recently a few changes happened for the worse and it is clear clients are not their priority. The staff as a whole are superb and try their best but when poor managerial decision are introduced and... More

Everything in this hotel conveys calm, sense of your own time and pleasure to your senses. Probably one of the must-have accommodation and service experiences you MUST have in the Golden Triangle, the area of Benahavis, Marbella, Estepona. And if you combine this hotel with the Villa Padierna Thermas hotel in Carratraca, the experience will be SUBLIME !

During a recent visit to my parents in Marbella we went twice to this hotel to hang out at the beach club which is set in the grounds of this pseudo Tuscan villa. Luxurious beds are provided right on the beach and lunch is provided at the El bogavante restaurant. You would hardly know you were on coast crammed with... More

Loved the place. It is a true palace with lots of space in such a congested city. The outdoors are amazing, and the interior is spacious and well appointed. Breakfast is just perfect if weather allows you to stay in the terraza. Will definitely come back.

Woweeeeeee!!! What a beautiful resort! Perfect for doing nothing came back truly relaxed and rejuvenated...extended the trip by a night. Is pricey though, but in my opinion worth it! Parts of the resort can be used for private events but that never bothered us. Planning the next trip there!! Enjoy it you won't regret it!! P.S. if it's good enough... More

Stayed there for a week in June, combine amazing golf and a wonderful beach club. Could not find any better option around Marbella. The resort has three 18 hole courses. Haven´t tried Tramores, it seems to be kind of an academy. Alferini is an extremely long par 73. Even though the tees have been shortened for recreational play it was... More
