What made our trip to Southern Spain was the amazing staff at La Villa Marbella. They not only provided the best in customer service, but they did everything possible to ensure our holiday was perfect including booking day trips for us, arranging tour guides, arranging vehicles and cabs, and offering advice. They were more like travel agents than hotel staff. Everyone was friendly and did everything possible to help or aid you. The hotel was lovely and quaint - I would love to return. And for us unilingual dummies who only speak English - there was no problem. Most Europeans speak at least 2 languages - English being one of them. As a North American speaking only English we had no problems.

We just returned from an amazing holiday in Marbella, Spain. We joined up with our dinner club pals at La Villa Marbella and shared the most awesome week. From the time we checked in until the time we checked out the hotel staff was incredibly accommodating. We stayed in The Banyan Room while our pals shared The Cottage. Breakfast was served every morning between 0830 and 1100 to accommodate the early risers and the ones who wanted to catch a few extra Zzzzzz. We made side trips to Granada, Morocco and the Rock of Gibraltar and Marcos, Ben, Anna, Boli and the rest of the team helped us arrange ground transportation, and fabulous personal guides at the destination. Whether you are looking for tapas or an awesome place to eat dinner just stop at the front desk for recommendations. For those who love to shop you are in the right place do this as well. So many unique little places just minutes from your hotel room. If walking along the beach is what you like to do it's just a 10 minute walk to the ocean. This hotel is quaint and charming. We drove into Marbella, and the front desk folks even sent help to the parking garage to collect our bags.i would recommend this Boutique hotel to one and all.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Banyan room, stairs can be a little steep, but the little terrace was private and n...

Booked this hotel for a surprise birthday holiday for my girlfriend. We stayed for 5 nights and couldn't fault a single thing about the hotel. Booked the 'Lombok' room in the 'La Villa' House but we're upgraded to the 'Saigon' room which is in the new Courtyard Building and overlooks the delightful little courtyard pool.

Marcus and his staff surpass themselves with the superb level of service and the room was absolutely beautiful, with so much character and style that most 5 star hotels can't get close to matching.

The setting in the middle of Marbella Old Town is perfect with easy access to all the best restaurants and bars in town, and only a 10 minute stroll down to the beach.

Quite simply one of the best hotel experiences that we've ever had amongst dozens all over the world, and we will certainly be going back.

What a great find. This hotel is absolutely beautiful. We only stayed for 2 nights and as what has been said before we wished we had stayed longer.We stayed in September last year. This review is a bit late in coming, but as we are returning in May I felt I had to write about it.

We stayed in one of rooms at The Cottage, where there is a small courtyard with a small table and two chairs outside our room set in a courtyard. Leading through from the front door to our room is a communal living room with sofas and lovely furnishings. Upstairs there was a small terrace with nice sofa and chairs where you could sit have an evening drink. We tried the pool and also the terrace above the pool area.

The room was delightful, very clean and we had everything we needed, bathroom was well equipped with all toiletries needed and a hairdryer. There was tea and coffee making facilities. There was a mini bar stocked with water, soft drinks, wine etc. It would have been good though to have had a price list for these items. I am not sure if the water is complimentary.

The breakfast was extremely good, with you choosing what you wanted when you arrived but could be changed at any time.

The staff were all great and could not have done enough for you. We had a late night flight and Marcus let us keep our room until it was time to leave for the airport, free of charge. We did not even have to ask, he made the offer to us. This to us was a very kind gesture and made our last day in Spain very enjoyable, knowing we had our room to go back to so we could shower and change before making our journey to the airport.

We cannot wait to return and would like to thank Marcus and his team for a very enjoyable stay.

We have just returned from La Villa Marbella for the second time .It is undoubtedly a beautiful little hotel . We stayed in the new "Loft " and it felt like our own wee house in the middle of old Marbella .Our room was "Penang" and I can't praise it highly enough -two levels with a small sitting room downstairs and bedroom upstairs .It is beautifully appointed with rustic characters remaining in the walls and furnishings .We slept so well as it is dark and peaceful albeit it is in central Marbella . The owners are gracious and exceedingly helpful . Breakfast is of a high standard of freshness , quality and taste . We cannot wait to return and would instantly highly recommend this little hotel to people with good taste .

Room Tip: They are all lovely and come at different prices .Shanghai and Penang are my favourites - you will n...

It is the cutest little hotel in the cutest little street in the cutest lityle town. Okay, apart from the cuteness, the service is simply excellent. The staff is extremely warm and friendly. They gave us great suggestions on restaurants and each meal stood out over the other. The rooms are fabulous and the tailor made breakfast every morning is just fantastic. The hotel is small, cozy and romantic.

All in all, our most enjoyable hotel in all of Spain that we traveled in 14 days. My husband and I both loved this place.
