I stayed at the Rio Real hotel with a friend from 20th May to 24th May. The 40 min coach transport link from Malaga airport to Marbella was very good at 8 euros per person and then it was a short taxi ride to the resort costing 10-15 euros.
The hotel staff were very pleasant on arrival. The Par Superior room was amongst the best hotels I have stayed in, clean and spacious featuring free Wifi and an amazing view from the balcony of 11th hole.
The golf course was a good challenge for golfers of all levels and the green keepers were out early every morning to ensure it is kept in prestige condition.
The breakfast included was limited but you could pay for optional extras. The lunch and dinner was very good quality and value for money.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone whether you play golf or are just looking for a quality boutique hotel a short taxi ride to Marbella town. I will certainly be returning in the near future.
