Hollie:

Marbella is the most upscale resort in Spain. It is expensive. However it is beautiful and the paseo maritimo has more than 50 restaurants and bars. Shopping is one of the best in Spain. Try to look for a hotel you can afford in downtown Marbella. Go to Puerto Banus for the day. This is one of the most expensive places in Spain.

I think when you hear Marbella is a 'good laugh' I think people are probably referring to the partying to be had in Puerto Banus! At night, especially in the summer the clubs and bars are rocking until dawn, during the day the beach clubs are the places to be seen, having a good pose and looking foxy! Take a look at the website www.lovebanus.com for information of times and dates for the beach clubs, especially the champagne spraying parties if that idea appeals! Marbella town itself is a lot quieter, with a more family friendly or romantic atmosphere, so it depends what you are looking for.

I agree with Kik - if that's the kind of "party" time you're looking for girls, then PB will more than likely suit you better.

Having said that i'm sure you'll have a mad time wherever you go, you definately come across as "fun" and "crazy" ;-)

Marbella is much nicer and cheaper than P Banus, but if you really want to party then Banus is the place. But check prices before you decide. If you are happy to pay stupid preices like 100euros + per bottle than fair enough. 15e is probably the very least you will pay for one drink.

If you want high octane partying with lots of cheap alcohol, then I'd stick with somewhere like Ibiza!

Hey :)

Have a look at Aloha Gardens, we've booked it for August, the townhouse it sleeps 8. It's only £130 pp for 5 nights which is a complete bargain. There's a few bars and restaurants near by. You need to get a taxi down to PB but it's about 6euros and between friends that's nothing. You could walk down during the day but not at night in heels or after a few wines lol

You can get drinks for 9euros you just need to shop about. Bars do deals with booths and bottles.

Anywhere that draws the young part crowd in droves will usually be expensive as they are popular.

However there are also some places that are crazily expensive just because of the reputation they once had - now they are frequented by the dirty old "ladies of the night" and are considered by many to be drug infested dens of iniquity however, for some reason they still prove to be popular :)
