Is Marbella a good choice?

by Standiamond


I am planning to spend about 8 nights on the Costa del Sol with my family of 11 including 5 grandchildren 9-16. Marbells looks like a nice place to stay in a self contained setting from where we can takes some day trips- perhaps La Ronda, Sevilla, Malaga and/or Cordoba or Cadiz. Is that area a good choice to find a good place for the family or are there other area you would recommend. All suggestions appreciated. I speak Spanish, have visited Spain a couple of times without my family and am a world traveler.

Re: Is Marbella a good choice?

by duckpondep

My husband & I stayed in the Pyr Hotel in Fuengirola for a week in 2008. It was an average hotel, but had a tiny kitchenette & a little balcony and was great for the 2 of us. The location was wonderful. Just steps from the beach and located where we had our choice of about 25-50 restaurants each night. You could choose from Italian, American, Pizza, ANY type of food within walking distance of the Pyr. We ate outdoors at cafes every night. Shopping was close. Every other day we took a tour to someplace out of town. (Ronda, the Ahalambra (sp?), etc.) (by bus) We had no complaints & would return to that hotel, especially because of the location. We love to walk and we love to eat outdoors. There was a beautiful carrousel out on the sidewalk in front of the hotel. Note that we are in our 50's, have been to 40-50 countries & islands in the 7 years we've been married and are not picky travelers.

I think it's a very good idea, and also a great base for reaching those places you mentioned. And especially it will be popular for all 5 grandchildren with good entertainment for them in all directions. A couple of suggestions for them would be the Selwo marine park in Benalmádena, and the Selwo Animal park in Estepona

Travel Tips for Marbella

This is a ''Jewel '' in the ''Old Town '' Marbella

by Waalewiener

This picture shows the Calle (street ) de Los
Dolores, and this is one of the most photographed area's in the '' Old Town ''
Marbella. Of course the walk through the '' Old Town ''
with Stace & Carmen was the most memorable part of our visit to Marbella.

Porto Banus

by Geoff_Wright

Porto Banus is part of what is known as the Golden Mile. It is a playground of the rich and famous, the showbiz celebrities, sheikhs, millionaires and royalty. It's an attractive area to walk around in the evening, and to stroll along the quayside, drooling over the Millionaire's yachts, some large enough to accommodate two vehicles - side by side!

Marbella has about 17 miles of beaches

by dlytle

With about 17 miles (27 kilometers) of coastline and 24 different beaches to choose from Marbella has something for everyone. Whether you're into jet-skiing, sailing, star-spotting, balloon flights, cable skiing or simply enjoying some of the best fresh seafood in the Mediterranean you'll find it all at Marbella's seafront and water sports centers.

Stroll along the famous Golden Mile and dine at some of the most sumptuous (and expensive) restaurants that the Mediterranean has to offer. Or visit one of the many "chiringuitos" - the beach bars that pepper this stretch of coastline, serving much-needed cold drinks and delicious food to summer visitors.

Most of the beaches are well served with all the usual "essentials" like foot baths, lifeguards, children's play areas, sun loungers, sunshades and a variety of water sports - jet skis, pedaloes, wind surfers and banana rides.

You can hire a jet ski or water bike from many of the bars and safety standards are high - wearing a life jacket is obligatory and there are safe access lanes to avoid accidents with swimmers.

For the uninitiated, a great way to learn the basics of water skiing is at the Cable Ski center based at Parque de las Medranas in San Pedro de Alcantara to the west of Marbella.

On the road from Marbella to Fuengirola just beyond the Marbella arch, you'll find Funny Beach where you can enjoy go-carting and all the usual water sports as well as some more adventurous activities such as parasailing.

Divers (and would-be underwater adventurers) should pay a visit to the Happy Diver's Club at the Atalaya Park Hotel beach that has great views of both Gibraltar and the Moroccan coast.

In the picture you can see the sailing and motor vessel WindSpirit riding at anchor (a Windstar ship from which I was doing a 7 day Mediterranean cruise) near to what I think is La Fontanilla Beach near the leisure pier and old town of Marbella.

Good look but satisfactory restaurant

by noirroi about La Comedia

From the first sight it seems that La Comedia is something unique, a flavorful restaurant. But when you get inside this feeling disappears. The interior is qiute poor, food is rather naive-cooked (a countryside try to cook town-food). We liked none of the dishes. The english couple that hold this restaurant are very nice, but they spend more time talking with guests-compatriots then running the business.
