We went to Hotel Puente Romano in Marbella, where we, as a family, own a small apartment in the founding part of this exclusive resort a few miles west of the town of Marbella. If you know this part of the world, you know you go there for the sunshine, not for the tranquility nor the cheap pricing. Yet everytime we go, we are surprised by the oasis of calm that is the Hotel Puente Romano. Having in recent years been acquired by the Leading Hotels of the World, it has standards to live up to at any rate. And live up to them it does. Even the new, ever present moneyed Eastern European crowds are humbled by the lack of show-off opportunities and so very easily blend into the relaxation "order of the day". In this, the HPR is a home away from home for all present; opportunities to dress up and dine in style abound on the beach as within the hotel itself, which looks like a very Old Money club, reminiscent of New England beach and country clubs on Long Island, with different more ecclectic crowds. For 4 to 5 days this is a perfect stopover and/or short holiday break. Explore the strand walk where most Spaniards like to run, jog, walk the dog and generally get out before it gets too hot. The restaurants in the hotel are located outside mostly near the eponymous roman bridge "Puente Romano", which reminds us that this part of the world, where a Roman Villa was discovered on the way to Puerto Banus, has always been a richman's haven, since times immemorial. To boot, for the last few years, the club on the beach has been shut down, and so gone are the days when you couldn't sleep in July and August because of the drunken revellers coming back through the carpark just below your window. Thank heavens. The silence is priceless and worth the expense.
