“Different from the rest.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I'm not sure what to call Villa Tiphareth, it's not a hotel or a B&B it's like having your own private villa with a few friends staying over who make you breakfast and clean your room.
We spent seven nights here and spent everyday lazing around the pool. We couldn't have been more comfortable and relaxed. Martina is a lovely lady who makes the effort to ensure your stay is perfect. We were greeted with a cold glass of cava and a big smile, what could be nicer. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We stayed in two different ones and can highly recommend the Argan room with its lovely big bed. We also stayed in Jaipur which is also lovely. All rooms have fridges so you can buy wine and food for lunch (supermarket 10 minute walk away) which we had outside our room a couple of days which was lovely. Breakfast is relaxed around the pool and served until late although Martina is more than happy to serve it anytime. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. If you are going to Marbella for golf or a holiday/weekend break this is a perfect place to stay. The bus stop is a five minute walk or you can drive anywhere along the cost as the main roads are all a minute away.
You could be anywhere in the world once your behind the Villa Tiphareth gates with all your needs catered for. Thanks Martina and your staff for a great week. Hopefully we will see you all again one day, in the meantime we are spreading the word!

Room Tip: The Argan is a lovely big room with a lovely big bed.

Where do I start... I had to organise a trip for 10 ladies to celebrate my sisters Hen Do and I honestly couldn't have wished for abetter time. I couldn't believe our luck when we arrived- the villa and rooms and surroundings are stunning! Martina was the perfect host! She couldn't do enough for you, able to cater to our needs and also make many recommendations to ensure we enjoyed our stay. It's designed beautifully and created such a relaxed atmosophere! Martina also caters well as we requested a tapas meal which was delicious and tastefully displayed. I will be returning every year if I can! Amazed by how lovely it is. Thank you so much x

I will start off saying that I wish my partner and I could stay longer: this villa is absolutely perfect
and relaxing.
We arrived around 12 and soon after unpacking we relaxing by the pool sipping a drink and having an aperitif
Martina is the perfect host: attentive to details, she looks after you making you feel at home and very pampered.
The breakfast served by the pool is a nice way to start off your day with a elegant and genuine touch
The staff is adorable and friendly.
I would love to come back

We stayed here (3 people) in Casablanca room for 4 nights after having been badly let down by a hostal in town.

The owner Martine could not have been friendlier more professional or welcoming.

The villa is located just outside of town in a lovely residential location. We felt very safe here. There is a good local bus service that stops at the bottom of the road. It is only a couple of stops from the city centre and is 1 euro per person. However if you miss the last bus home taxis are plentiful and only cost 8 euros.

The villa itself is absolutely stunning. The pool area is something that dreams are made of. So peaceful and quite. There is a beautiful garden with hammocks, four poster out door beds. All rooms are spacious light and extremely well decorated and thought out. Tea/coffee faciltites in the rooms as well as a fridge. The whole place is immaculately kept.

Breakfast was served on the terrace. Food was lovely. Coffee, tea, fresh orange juice, water, fresh fruit, spanish buscuits, muffins etc. We were also give a lovely basket of toast and coissants. Home made jams and lovely butter.

Martine has amazing local knowledge and is more than happy to recommend restaurants etc, both her and Mike were wonderful hosts. We felt like we were staying with old friends and cannot wait to return. The little touches made all the difference. Each guest was given a glass of champagne one afternoon and in the evening candles were lit and placed on our tables whilst we sat with a drink.

I cannot recommend Villa Tipareth highly enough.

Room Tip: most of the rooms are in seperate annexes which makes them feel like little houses which have been...

Amazing hotel not far from downtown Marbella. The attention provided by the hostess Martina was spectacular and the hotel itself is a little piece of heaven. Highly recommended for everyone, you will be delighted and most of all well attended during your time in Marbella.

A true "Haven". An oasis in the Costa Del Sol, Hard to imagine that such a peaceful,beautiful place exists amid all that madness. But it does ! Villa Tiphareth !!! Run by people who are wonderful and, at the same time, highly professional. Not a detail missed and so helpful. All words of praise fall short and there are no words to do justice to the beauty of the place.
Hard to believe but absolutely true...and.. only a few minutes drive away from the centre of Marbella.
Will definitely return!

Villa Tiphareth is one of the most special places I have ever been. It is set in a stunning position with great views up to the mountains and a gorgeous view down to the bay.The whole atmosphere of the place is very calming and it is very beautiful and well appointed. Martina the host is wonderful- she went to great lenghts to make our stay very special and is a very warm and giving person. I will definately be going back.
