“A place for the heart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

I was overwhelmed with the beauty of this gorgeous villa in Marbella. We spent two nights here and it was one of the most romantic places we stayed during our holiday in Spain. The villa itself was amazing and the location in town was perfect for us to be able to walk in and experience the sights for ourselves, all within walking distance. I cannot emphasize how impressed I was with Marcos and his team there throughout our stay. He was wonderful and such a genuine and beautifully natured gentleman who made us feel very welcome and was extremely informative with his directions and recommendations during our holiday. A big thank you to Marcos and his team!

Tho we were only there for an overnight stay the staff we met (Juan, Marcos & Benjamin I think) made my wife & I feel really welcome. The set up of the hotel is really quirky but in a good way, unusual but wonderful, set in Marbella old town. A little tip tho, if you are arriving at the bus station, get a taxi from there!

We stayed only for one night but a beautiful hotel and great service. The room was very well maintained. Breakfast was delicious and the rooftop was amazing. 5 star service. The staff was helpful and gave us excellent suggestions.

I don't quite understand the rave reviews about La Villa Marbella, granted it has its charms and the rooms are nicely done in asian styles but it really was just that a very nice room. The terrace area when we visited was looking a little tired with limited seating and breakfast is more of a B&B arrangement where you have to decide at the begining of your stay what you want for each day. Needless to say we over ordered as we weren't sure what we wanted and then found that each day we were leaving something but it was too much of a hassle to ask to change every day. We stayed in the Palawan room I liked this house as its very private I wouldn't want to stay in the main reception house it would be too busy with breakfast guest and check in etc. We really liked the location as we prefer the old town so it was great to be able to just walk out the door to the shops, beach and restaurants. The Palawan room is very nice, you just need to weight up the costs and remember that this isn't a hotel with other facilities available but it is right in the old town.

Stayed at the Villa Marbella for 2 weeks in late September early October and loved the whole stay and exxperience.
Highlights were the following.
Hotel: beautiful rooms in an Asian theme with all the mod cons and everything you require.
Staff: Marcus and his staff cannot do enough for you from the minute you arrive until you leave a huge plus for the hotel.
Location: In the middle of Marbella old town with restaurants and bars galore, but in a quiet location so your sleep wasn't disturbed.
Food: Breakfast on the roof terrace which is plentiful and pleasant.
Others. Beach a 10 min walk down hill and great just to lie and soak up some sun, Excursions are plentiful by bus from the main station a 15min walk or a short taxi ride, Malaga, Rhonda, other Costa del sol resorts and Gibraltar. Puerta Banus is a short ferry ride across the bay or a 1.5hr walk along the front.
Would recommend the Villa Marbella to anyone looking for a small boutique hotel in a great location for both a short and long stay.

We stayed in " The Design" builing for 2 nights last week. What an absolutely brilliant place, room was 5* and full of luxury. Staff were so helpfull and couldn't do enough for us even collected our bag from the car in the carpark(which is ideal only 2 mins away and 14euros for 24hrs) I can see why its No1 on trip advisor..!!!
Can't believe some people have said its not value for money...Crazy..!
Keep up the good work....
