“Absolutely as Good as the Reviews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

We stayed here as our first stop on a tour through Andalucia, and wished we could have stayed longer. The dream like setting near the town center is marvelous, and our room was immaculate and very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and offered superb recommendations. We look forward to a longer stay on a future visit.

We were visiting Marbella for 5 nights as a friend was getting married in Puerto Banus.
This is possibly one of the nicest most charming hotels I've stayed in. The location is perfect, we had a hire car for the wedding but otherwise there was no need for one unless you plan to travel further afield. Our room was Goa, being July it was hot and the air con was welcome. Rooms cleaned each day with a chocolate left on the pillow. Your breakfast order can be changed and there is a good selection, also very nice to sit by the pool and be waited on every morning!
The staff were fantastic, nothing was a problem. One night we returned late and our key card wasn't working we called and security came instantly to let us in.
Old town Marbella is beautiful.

Wonder hotel in the historic center of time. Great location and the staff could not have been friendly and warm. We had a wonderful room which was cozy and well appointed. A very generous continental breakfast was served. Both restaurant recommendations offered were great. The Villa consists of several properties in a two block radius. None were more than two minutes from the office. Check in was fast and easy surpassed only by ease of check out. Had no idea what to expect when we arrived and would definitely return there if we visit the region again.

When I found this hotel I thought something was not right with 800+ reviews and such a high score so we booked in and held our breath. We need not have worried it was lovely and just what we needed. Beautiful décor and finished to such a high standard. We went for the Banyan Suite and it was spacious and with an outside terrace which was great in the evening. We went in October and the weather was 25 degrees every day, and with A/C in the room this was used just to take the heat out the room. The room also has a massive TV and hifi system and the TV channels include UK ones if you need that. Free wifi also, and its really good wifi that you can stream from.
Located in the old town its a quirky set-up that works, about 8 buildings scattered across the old town and you all meet a the courtyard for breakfast around the swimming pool. Its a continental breakfast which is perfect, fresh fruit, fresh bread, fresh coffee and sunshine, what more do you need.
We had not been to Marbella before but we really liked it with the combination of old and new, quite a narrow beach but great all the same with attended sunbeds if you want them and some lovely beach front café's for lunch.
We will be back!

Room Tip: I am sure they are all great but ones with an outside space are the best in our opinion.

This little find was such a treat! While we struggled to find the place - darn city streets - we finally parked and walked. Much easier! Once located, we were so warmly greeted and shown to our rooms. The property actually consists of several buildings and lots of different room styles/types. They are all perfectly located in the heart of Marbella's Old Town. In my opinion - the ONLY place to stay when you visit this city. Our friends had all told us that Marbella was just so-so. Stay in the Old Town and you will think quite differently. It exudes a great energy and we didn't want to leave! In fact, we left Marbella, went to Seville and came back! We forfeited a night in Seville to return to La Villa Marbella! All in all, great value, WONDERFUL service and prime location. Beds were a tad on the hard side - my only negative comment. Worth it though as everything else is superb!

Just got back from 5 nights staying at La Villa Marbella and I can't recommend this hotel highly enough. Everything is made easy for you including airport transfers, maps of the area and advice on places to see. The hotel itself is spread over several historic buildings but that just adds to its charm. Breakfast is continental and the food plentiful and of superb quality. Marcos makes all his guests feel very welcome and makes a point of speaking to you to check everything is fine. The location is ideal with just a short walk to the old town bars and restaurants. When you visit Marbella this is the place to stay.

Small hotel in middle of old town, from the time we arrived Marcos and his team make us feel like home, we got upgrade without asking . Hotel service is comparable if not better than some luxurious chain
Location is great as you can walk everywhere in old Town and will always find a charming spot anywhere you turn
Rooms spacious and with soo much character
breakfast is included and good quality
this hotel will be in my top list and return hotel
hint: book transfert from airport with hotel as taxi drivers are not always familiar with streets in old town
