To be honest, my husband and I stayed at La Villa Marbella back in August but i just completely forgot to review. It wasn't until we were deciding where to go on holiday this year that we thought - where else could compare to this?
So we have been back on trip advisor again and I have to laugh at some of the (minimal) grumbles.
Ok, so they dont serve dinner. Im fairly sure when booking you get a full outline of what it is that you have actually paid for. The breakfast comments are ridiculous, people complaining about not getting hot food. You're in Spain for goodness sake, what were you expecting? Perhaps some half heated buffet of bacon eggs and sausage? There was a list full of choices for breakfast, which can be changed at any time. If you found the breakfast boring, all you had to do was give the hotel a chance.
The rooms are lovely. There isnt any room to do any breakdancing but i really dont think that affects the 5 star rating. The furniture is beautiful and quality, the sheets are quality, the decoration is too.
We loved that it wasnt one big building, thats part of the charm of this place, and im talking the town not just the hotel. We were given a whole load of information about nice places to eat and visit, and trust me i've been to 5 star resorts before and never EVER had anyone take the time to do that.
Someone commented that honeymoon couples dont pay that much attention to the details, I can only assume this person has never met a woman who has just planned her own wedding. I'm fairly sure my husband would disagree! We were there on our honeymoon and absolutely loved it, so much so that we are going back for our first anniversary. Even the cleaning staff were sweet and friendly.
I saw a comment about "it took 15 minutes to get to the beach" - perhaps a wrong turn? or maybe you were crawling? this comment is nothing short of ridiculous
All in all, dont listen to the doubters. The place is worth every penny, there wouldnt be so many good reviews if it wasnt. How can so many people be wrong?
There is no such thing as "too good to be true"
