Travelers' Choice
A tranquil oasis surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Costa Del Sol landscape, Anantara Villa Padierna Palace has much to offer - a mild climate all year round, 3 world-class golf courses, sun-soaked beaches, and charming traditional villages perched on breath-taking mountains and cliffs. The property has a unique location, away from the bustle of Marbella and Puerto Banus, yet close enough to indulge in their stylish nightlife and shopping or simply to be blown away by the charming white villages, the ancient magnificence of Ronda; mouth-watering tapas, or the local market to source local products for a private cooking class at the hotel. Member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this iconic “museum hotel” is decorated with 1,200 diverse forms of art spread throughout the palace areas and on the 132 beautiful spacious guestrooms, suites and sophisticated pool villas. The ideal place to celebrate events, this charming palace has a location suitable for each occasion: six indoor spaces, stunning terraces and an idyllic amphitheater. There is a timeless elegance to the wellness and the best Spa in Spain according to World Spa Awards 2019. Drawing inspiration from its surroundings, the Anantara Spa exhibits 2,000 sqm of Roman baths, a heated indoor pool, and a menu infused with native ingredients and water-themed therapies. Only 3 five min. from the sparkling sea and own Beach Club, the hotel proposes extensive facilities including a seasonal Kids Club and a Racquet Club with tennis and paddle courts. Andalusian gastronomy inspires an elevated dining experience meant to allow guests to meet, rediscover and connect with the destination, including Mediterranean style at the Beach Club, Japanese haute cuisine at 99 Sushi Bar and the signature cocktails designed by the hotels mixologist.

Summary: people hotel, service, location, bed/bath very good. Comfort and food: at its best mediocre. Sound-isolation: bad. Trouble shooting: varying. We stayed 14 days as we booked prior. We should have left early. For a hotel that asks rates from 340 up to 560 euro/night for a junior suite this was just not good enough. In more detail: The good things: 1. Breakfast: food, people hotel, the service. 2. Desk and concierges. 3. Bed, bath etc. + cleaning. People+service 4. Party New Year's Eve: people hotel, service, music and surrounding (atmosphere). 5. Christmas Eve: atmosphere, people hotel and service. 6. Location. 7. Bar (people and service) and food bar. 8. Beach club: people, service and food. 9. The arrival: The hotel created a great Tapas table in our suite as asked by me prior in order to surprise my wife. The fact that I nearly forgot, arriving really tired after a long journey from the Netherlands to Spain, was excellently and very diplomatic handled without my wife noticing there was a surprise coming up. Excellent! The not so good things: 1. problem-solving takes a long time. Two weeks there were problems with the TV. It would just stop more than once in an evening, and of course always in the middle of exciting parts of a movie. So, you can't relax. It creates irritation, a not so good atmosphere. The first week we were told we were the only ones with this problem. Only the second week, something was done. And I was told the day we left that this issue was long known. 2. not good sound isolation. Our room was in the same building as the ballroom for events. The sound when a party was going prevents relaxing, let alone sleep. The hotel gave us another room for the night of the 31th (also the most expensive night to stay). However, in the afternoon we couldn't relax in our room due to the strong (bas)sounds, even after phoning three times, and in the middle of the night we had to change rooms. 3. very limited room service. Salad, burger, fries, bolognese, soup and such. No decent food. Also the quality is not very good. We didnt eat most of it and stopped ordering. 4. in general the kitchen of the hotel as we experienced it was not impressive. The food on Christmas Eve was at its best mediocre. Same for the food at New Years Eve (345 euro pp). The Japanese restaurant was OK, not exciting and therefore, relative to other Japanese restaurants we know, just too expensive. In the Beach club and in the Bar the food was excellent. All in all: we booked 14 days in order to relax in comfort with good service and food, which in retrospect was too long. It was just not worth the money we payed. The hotel did offer us a discount of 15% (of which 10% was used in the final calculation we saw later) and one night for free. One of the persons from the hotel told me that she thought this was more than enough to live up to our discomfort. Which illustrates that one just doesn't understand why you are willing to pay so much money in the first place. I really would have rather paid the whole bill without discounts etc if the issues and the related talks and negative energy not would have been there. This hotel was a huge disappointment for us, in spite of the fantastic people and their service. They are really great. For the record <>< I did send this review to the staff of the hotel (5th Jan 2022) in order to give them the opportunity to correct facts. I waited till the 20th Jan 2022, 10 days longer than I told them I would. My opinion of course is my opinion. I didn't get information about wrong facts as presented. Therefore, it is safe to say that they are all correct.

Hotel's Favorite
Second stay there (1rst time was not yet part of Anantara group). Overall very nice hotel, friendly staff, clean room and common areas. Minus point is spa/fitness opening hours very limited (starting at 10am some days even later … is very late to go gym at 10am when 35 degrees outside) We arrived early around 12 and they took time till official check in time to deliver the room … we really expect bit more flexibility in a 5 star property like this… or at least propose another room (even with extra charge or a drink at the bar…) BUT at the end they offer us a champagne bottle delivered in the room when we were at the swimming pool… so they keep it 5* stars service and we forgot the inconvenience :)) well done! Covid safe measures could be a bit more clear as from time to time guests at the breakfast buffet without mask … and only few staff members react on this … so a bit confusing to wear mask or not … Overall very good hotel , top choice in this area and we will be back in a near future.

Maybe it’s the ride up to the property, that feeling when you know at the end of the road something special awaits. Maybe it’s the amazing and professional staff that is so attentive during your entire stay, maybe it’s the view… golf course, lake and ocean coupled with seagull’s flying majestically in the horizon. Or maybe it’s the best breakfast you’ve ever encountered, full of cold and hot items and everything else you can think of. Maybe it’s all the restaurants they offer and all the wonderful places to relax and unwind. Maybe it’s the spa and beauty facilities with an array of services. It could be all of those things and maybe more, but VP has my vote for 5 stars. Maybe because it’s the best! Thank you Villa Padierna for making our stay magical.

We were for the very first time in Villa Padierna during the summer of 2020 for a week. We really loved the place and the environment and above all the warmth and professionalism of all the staff. For that reason, we decided to go back at the end of 2021 and spend few days over there. Expectations from our side were really high for this second stay. And after the experience we had I just can say that Villa Padierna went above and beyond the expectations and made us live and unforgettable experience. Appart of the superb quality of the facilities and the environment, the staff really took very good care of us in every single detail, from our arrival in the reception, to the room we were assigned and the breakfast. Everything was heartily made and we feel like at home. We can´t wait for the next time at Villa Padierna, our home in Marbella.

Excellent service, facilities and standards as usual, not cheap but that’s known in advance. If you want to eat off premises a taxi is required. 1 course had been closed for past 2 years which we weren’t aware of .
