“We stayed around this area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

We stayed in the apartments around this area. We booked under owners direct.

Absolutely gorgeous area. From where we stayed (as you drive into Rio Real), the opposite side and down a hill is a lovely beach bar (slightly pricey, and it is advised to pre-book) but is full of character with a african theme. The theme works well and isn't tacky at all.

Location wise, it is quite a walk to Marbella Town from Rio Real golf. We went as a group of 5 21 - 22 year olds (all thin, some quite athletic) but we only managed the walk once and it took us 40 minutes in intense heat. Taxi's are around 10 Euros to Marbella and dont take a second and the bus is 1 Euro 25 (If i remember correctly).

Taxi to Peurto Banus was around 20 Euro's and took about 10 minutes.

I really enjoyed it here, very peaceful escape. The golf course looked fantastic, and was never very busy.

“Great course, well maintained”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Great course and a very good deal provided by the club to accommodate 16 golfers on a stag trip. Buggies are a great idea. Some fantastic holes on the course.

“Great course. A classic in Marbella.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Only one problem: buggies not allowed in the fairways. The service is good but the refreshments very expensive.

“Lovely little course”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

A very pleasant golf course, not to long as a 16 handicapper I found the greens a little slow, but the front 9 was very tight and very pretty, and the back 9 a little longer but more open. I would recommend, club house quite small but food was OK.
