My husband and I recently spent 9 days at La Villa Marbella, in the heart of Marbella's Old Town, in the Shanghai suite. In a word, our stay was amazing! From the moment we arrived after a long overnight flight from NY, we were greeted with hospitality and friendship. Refreshments on the terrace in the warm Marbella sun, while getting a map personalized with recommendations for dinners and entertainment. Then being led to our thoughtfully appointed room with all amenities from beach towels to wine glasses and tea/coffee to toiletries including toothbrush and sewing kit, and most importantly a powerful hair dryer with European plugs! (no voltage converter required on this trip!). The highlight of the Shanghai suite is the private patio with loungers and a hot tub. Breakfast each day was plentiful and delicious, served personally each morning poolside or in the solarium, along with pleasant discussion and suggestions for the day's activities from the Villa Marbella staff. And with the option to have it served even up to 1pm, we often found ourselves full until dinner time! Marbella is the perfect home base for someone looking to explore the Costa del Sol and Andalucia. And each day before our excursions, Marcos was available at reception to give us detailed maps and suggestions on travel and sightseeing. From Granada and it's Alhambra, to Ronda and Córdoba-- Rick Steves has NOTHING on Marcos Torres!
Coming back each night, whether from an excursion to another city or a lazy day on the beach, was like coming home. We were sad to leave, but returned home relaxed and refreshed. We sincerely hope to have the opportunity to visit this amazing place again someday! Many thanks to Marcos and the Villa Marbella team for so much hospitality and making our trip magical.
