We stayed in La Villa Marbella mainly because of its Trip Advisor rating at number one in Andalucia. It was an enjoyable experience, although I don't quite understand the superlative assessment. The hotel consists of a number of separate town houses converted to bedrooms, all within a short radius of the original establishment which houses the reception. Juan was extremely friendly, hospitable and knowledgeable, really professional. The room we stayed in (Sherating) was very comfortable and well appointed, with 2 TVs, CD player/radio and terrace jacuzzi. It was most tastefully decorated with a far Eastern theme. The hotel didn't appear to have any common areas such as bar, lounge, restaurant etc and one would presumably spend most of the day out in the town. Breakfast was perfectly adequate without being remarkable and was served in one of the converted buildings about 100 metres from our house. The hotel does not provide any other meals, although there are plenty of excellent restaurants and tapas bars close by.
Ther is no vehicle access to the hotel but it is situated a short stroll – perhaps 250 metres - from a public car park and the sea is another fairly short walk away from the hotel. The beach is very disappointing but maybe we're a bit spoiled, having visited Galicia earlier this year. By far the best feature of the hotel is its location within the old town of Marbella which is really charming and well worth a visit.
This is not a destination hotel per se but if you want to visit the old town of Marbella, then it is a very good place to stop over.
