Went on a relaxing team building event. We started at the restaurant by the beach for lunch, food was excellent and the for lunch we had an excellent meal at the main hotel in the mountains. Hotel arranged for us for a golf day! Excellent service and the rooms and views are breath taking! Deserves a 6 Star!

When you enter the Villa Padierna you just feel like royalty! The rooms(I stayed in a junior suite) were spacious,delicate and elegant with a very comfortable bed. The color scheme and interior details throughout the hotel screens luxury where ever you turn and although the place is quite new it is made with great detail and in an old classical...

The two courses we played were both spectacular and nicely maintained, challenging. Good experience. Easy access from hotel, just elevator down, parking the same. The chef in both restaurants were very good, food tasted good and looked pleasing. The waiters had some minor goofs, nothing serious. A little nervous maybe. Our room was large and beautiful, but clumsy. Only one...

My wife and I stayed at the resort in October and really enjoyed the experience. Like the review Sharon C has written we also booked through Secret Escapes but did not have any problems with our booking, however, I can appreciate Sharon's comments. The only negative aspect of our stay was waking one morning to find a rather large cockroache...

This is a stunning hotel and golf course a few miles outside Marbella. We had a short family break here and loved it. The room we had was large, clean and overlooked the golf course. We used the spa, golf course and children's activities. The restaurant was excellent It is a short taxi ride from Marbella but far enough away...

I booked this hotel on a Secret Escapes so called 'deal' and was misled on the room I was given and rather than a deal, I ended up paying more than the rack rate value of a sub standard room. After several letters of complaint, they both eventually owned up, Secret Escapes blamed the hotel. The hotel blamed Secret Escapes...

As someone who is in the hospitality field, I always pay extra attention to details. This hotel is one of the best I have visited. Me and my colleagues/friends visited Villa Padierna from the 14th of Oct 2016 to 16th of Oct 2016 for The SEVEN STAR AWARD EVENT which my colleague and friend won CEO of the year award....

Beautiful hotel, we were fortunate enough to be double upgraded to a Villa which was a real treat (we were part of a large group of 28). The Spa in this hotel was divine, I had an Indian head massage which was fantastic and very relaxing. The steam/sauna facilities available were beautiful and was a good way to spend a...
