    everything was good, the weather could be a little bit better :)

    The atmosphere, the service, the hospitality were fantastic. The staff were so friendly and we could ask whatever we wanted and they arranged it. The benefit for us is that it is a small boutique, it feels like home. The room was very nice and the view was fantastic. In a few months we are going back to Marbella and we will definetly book this one again.

    There's much I'd change in my stay, the room and house doors close are heavy and close a bit laudly as well as the heating makes some noise at night but it's minor.

    Breathtaking view, helpful staff, Bali theme hotel design, delicious breakfast, comfy beds, good water pressure in the shower, comfy sunbathing armchairs

    Nothing, everything was great

    Everything was perfect! The room was beautiful and very well decorated. The view from the garden is amazing. Basically you can spend your whole day resting in the garden and enjoy the sun and the swimmming pool. You definitely need a car to go up there but you can park in front of the house. The road is a dead end so there is no risk. It's 10min from the beach and the centre of Marbella but you can't really do it walking. The hosts are very nice and very helpful.

    Everything was fantastic. However you really do need to have a car if you want to conveniently go back-and-forth from your hotel to all the things you want to see in the town and the beaches.

    A Peaceful Stay in Marbella
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Standard Double Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    The hotel is away from the center, literally the last building on a hill. If you don't have a car, getting to Marbella will require a taxi. The hotel does not serve dinner and has limited options for lunch (which are good and fullfilling, by the way), so you will be requiring a vehicle. Peace and quiet comes at a price, unfortunately.

    Olivia and Mercedes are lovely hosts. The hotel is on a hill overlooking Marbella, in a quiet neighborhood with no other buildings around. The breakfast are marvelous, the beds are firm and comfortable (may be uncomfortable if you are used to very soft beds) and overall the design is nice. It was the last stop for our Andalucian trip so we stayed here two days for rest, it was lovely.

    The hotel is situated on the heights of Marbella, just near the golf, and has a beautiful view on the coast. It is nice and quiet outside the crowd from the waterfront. The owner is just so kind and helpful, we had a wonderful stay.

    nothing - everything was perfect!

    The stay has been amazing. Mercedes took great care of us, and welcomed us with a glass of Prosecco. The room and the bathroom were extra comfortable and tidy. The breakfast was abundant and served on a lovely terrace overlooking the hills. A little gem worth visiting! too bad we couldn't try the swimming pool! Davvero un piacere! Ritorneremo sicuramente!

    One piece of advice - the hotel is about 10 mins out of town and so you'll need to organise cabs if you want a few drinks with dinner. Reception is happy to order one for you but they arrive with €10 already on the clock, which makes the journey into Marbella old town €20! Rather expensive for a 5 minute ride and the round trip adds €35 to the cost of supper unless you drive in.

    This is a tiny hotel in a residential area with a fantastic view. There's a lovely pool and terrace area which catches the breeze and the whole place has been really nicely designed. Our room was quite small but well appointed with a Moorish aesthetic and lots of wardrobe space! There is no restaurant on site although bar snacks are available. We ordered salads for lunch one day which were over-dressed and disappointing. Breakfast is ordered the day before and was nothing special - quite bland ham and cheese with hot options to order. One tip - tell the waitress what order you want to receive your dishes otherwise your hot eggs will come up when you've just started eating your croissant. That said the coffee and juice were both excellent and plentiful and you dine in a lovely spot overlooking the valley.

    Slightly tricky to find....and you do need a car.

    This boutique hotel is a refreshing contrast to the large, impersonal hotels which dominate this area. It is a small, charming place with wonderful views and a stunning terrace and pool area. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was delicious.
