The performers were very good, but the main guitarist had a bad attitude. He yelled out to clap instead of using my camera after the first song. Then he made a sourly face at me near the end of the show. Very unprofessional. Also, was charged 10 euro for one extra drink, which is a ripoff in any language. The other thing I didn't like was that the three of us were placed at the side of the stage, even though there were empty seats in front. They may have been reserved initially but should have offered to move us, as we were right in front of the steep staircase to the upstairs and were afraid someone (intoxicated) was going to fall right on top of us!

Hola!Fun Filled night and it goes on till 3 a.m. so if you are without transportation or car might be a bad idea. But superb music and sangria accompanying friendly people you cannot help but dance to the flamenco beats. A lifetime experience!Definitely highly recommend!There are restaurants close by so have dinner before you go!

We enjoyed the dancers and guitarists at this small, intimate Flamenco show. It was hard to see at first from the seats we were given, but we moved once the show started and it was evident that the room wasn't going to fill up. We were staying at the Marriott, and they booked the table for us - price was 25 Euros with one drink. One of the Spanish staff at the Marriott said that she always went here to see Flamenco, and we were not disappointed.

We have seen great Flamenco in Seville (El Arenal) and were hoping to see another great show in Marbella. We are disappointed the concierge at our hotel didnt warn us about this place. The stage is tiny, the seating impractical, the room old and tacky, and the show unprofessional. Even my children who were very excited to see the show fell asleep, and we were inclined to do the same but stayed awake just to avoid being impolite. From when we walked in, we were escorted to our seats by a lady who was quite far from being friendly - almost felt like she was mad at us just for walking in. The 10:30pm performance didn't even start till 11pm. Half the show, the guitarist was just trying to crack jokes and beg the crowd to smile and look like they are enjoying themselves. The performers were ordering themselves drinks during the show and looked like they didnt want to be there either. The best performance of the night was from a guest who got up on stage and started dancing away during one of their many "breaks" which they took between each dance. Really was a very amateurish group who in no way shape or form felt authentic. Our time would have been much better spent walking around the streets of Marbella than sitting there looking at our watches waiting for it to end.

2 hours of an authentic performance. Talented performers, wonderful music, rhythm and atmosphere.

The cost is reasonable too - 25 eur for adults, 15 for kids, 1 drink included. Be minded that extra drinks are extremely expensive so be careful.

Highly recommended!
