“Old town charm with new town luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

The old town of Marbella is just a wonderful place for a few days in this city. Walking distance to the beach, lots of lovely boutique shops and more restaurants you can try in a week. La Villa Marbella has very luxurious rooms with modern amenities and is just delightful to return to after a hot day on the beach or with sore feet from shopping. All the good reviews are well earned.

First trip to Marbella but not the last . La Villa Marbella is the perfect place to relax and unwind . A well located hotel in the old town of Marbella set in cobbled streets with beautiful flowers and a real sense of "old Spanish living ". Our room was gorgeous. Beautifully presented , tastefully decorated and set in the main building of the hotel . Breakfast was served (delicious) on the roof top terrace with the mountains in the background . A great start to your day . Although no bar ( mini bar reasonably priced) or restaurant facilities in the hotel the surrounding streets are full of great restaurants and bars all reasonably priced . We ate at Casanas which was spectacular! But all the food great and a large variety to choose from. Marcos, Juan and the team were the icing on the cake . Gracious, informative an all round lovely bunch of people . Thanks for a great 4 days . Will see u sooner rather than later I hope .

Long overdue review...stayed at La Villa Marbella in mid June of 2012 as part of a 2 week trip throughout Andalucia and Madrid. Upon arrival, we were immediately upgraded to a bigger room. The room and bathroom were very nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Everything was spotless. The breakfast was very generous (and tasty) and since the weather was nice, being able to have breakfast outside near the pool was a relaxing way to start the day. What really stood out though was the friendliness and helpfulness of the service. We were given a map and a very helpful and detailed overview of everything that Marbella had to offer, which was perfect since we hadn't had time to plan what we were going to do before we arrived. Additionally, Marcos called the car rental company on my behalf when we had to get in touch with them (also, parking is really close by and was surprisingly cheap at about 5 euros per night). We also didn't have plans for what to do once we left Marbella and Marcos happily gave us a bunch of suggestions on where we should go and was even willing to call hotels to check availability for us. The absolute only negative I'd say, but something that I found to be not much different than at any other hotel in Spain, is that the mattress was a bit worn and flat. However, despite that, would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend it!

This is truly a superb hotel. Marcos, William and Ben were amazing hosts. From the moment we arrived to the second we left they just couldn't do enough to make our stay something special. We stayed in the Shanghai room which was beautifully decorated with a big outside terrace with hot tub. Little touches we're all thought of - beach towels (replaced daily), bath robes, slippers, CD Player with CDs, etc.... We simply didn't want to leave. The hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of the Old Town which is simply picture perfect and so romantic.
We'll definitely be back - we made that promise to ourselves as we left on the journey home. For us that is a real first. This hotel is something completely special. 10 out of 10 to Marcos and his team.

Stayed in the Andaman room for 3 nights, absolutely perfect. Staff were so polite and couldn't do enough for you. No matter what you needed or wanted they sorted out! Room was gorgeous with all the amenities you would ever need! Home from home.
We particularly loved the shower and the decor in the room....so very different to anywhere else.
The location is perfect as in the middle of old town Marbella...a very short walk to anywhere you needed...shops and restaurants/bar. We will definately be back to say at La Villa Marbella.

We stayed at La Villa Marbella, in the room Cherating. It is a very spacious and stylish suite on the top floor, with a very nice and cozy terrass with a jacuzzi. You can look into a very nice street in the old town. The room itself offers all you need. it actually starts at the entrance..
La Villa Marbella has various rooms scattered over the old town, and all close to each other.
We had breakfast at the main building where the recetion is and were welcomed by Marcos and his friendly staff everyday.
They can point you in the right direction whether is is for food, drinks or beaches..
We enjoyed every minute of our stay, and highly recommend it to everyone who enjoys comfort and a luxurious stay..
And food wise, actually all food is great in Marbella, but our favourite place is Bar Altamirano at the square Altimirano..
We will return here some day !

Many thanks to Marcos, Isabel, and the team at La Villa Marbella for another great stay. As my wife says she always feels at home at La Villa Marbella and this stay was no exception. As the weather was so hot we even tried the pool this time which was very pleasant. We will be back again for the New Year.

Room Tip: They all seem to be pretty good!
