On our last night in Spain we took Aunty and Uncle out to dinner to say thank you for having us stay at their holiday home. We went to the same place we had tapas the first time and it was just as delicious!
After dinner we went to one of the bars along Puerto Banus and I was held hostage as the boys watched the Manchester United game. As if that wasn't boring enough, they still allow smoking in bars here in Spain so ...
... and benches were made by the marble cutter, Galiano. The marble had been left over from the land slide, which was brought on by the flood of November 1884. I guess we've been right when we see all kinds of channels and flood ways cut and built into the mountains and surrounding towns. There must be some really big rains and floods later on in the year.
We have no desire to go into the Bullring #8, built in 1900 ...
How fast can I type? It's already 1 am here - I didn't expect to be traveling for quite so long today.
Today I got up and had breakfast, then took a shower and got ready to check out, repacking my stuff in my bag etc.After I checked out, I spent about two hours downloading the Windows update (YAY!!). I have to say I didn't really notice it too much when I was selfhosting on my dev box at Microsoft, but it makes a HUGE difference on my Surface. So I've ...
Time to unpack and relax for a bit at Marks parents place in Marbella as it has been such a long time since I was there.
Did the usual Tapas in Marbs and partying in Banus.
Took a trip to Morocco (separate entry) and a morning out to Mijas where we saw some stunning views.
... Bob for their great company and shared meals together.
Lots of love coming your way to everyone in Portugal ...what fun we had Scottish phrases are still buzzing round my head as well as lines from the Murder Mystery. Thanks Max and Marion for sending the photos.. They are great and also thanks to Peter for the copy of the video made from the camera session. Great memories.
Adios Amigos...til we meet ...

Historical Traveler Reviews El Oceano Beach Hotel Marbella
A lovely hotel,
with many fine points. The restaurant and food are both excellent but on a couple of occasions spoilt by the volume of the live music which almost made conversation impossible. The pool area and bar snacks are great but unfortunately again the music was far too loud and people were complaining.
Overall a great find and one which we will be visiting again not least because of the wonderful staff.
We stayed in El Oceano for our wedding/honeymoon in June 2006.(we were getting married in the area) We were a little disappointed when we saw the front of the hotel as the website looked so fantastic but once we got inside we realised that all the beauty of this hotel is to the back, and everything did look just like you see it on the Internet!
This hotel is beautiful and I'm sure that if you go you will think so too. The hotel is quaint, clean and incredibly tranquil. The staff are lovely everytime I come here whether just eating or staying there. You will not get a nicer Sunday Lunch anywhere on the coast and all the other food is of superb quality ALWAYS! If you dont mind paying that little extra to stay somewhere that oozes charm and sophistication the the El Oceano Beach Hotel is the place to stay!
Stayed here in june 06 , while the rooms were clean and the pool area is nice, the staff could have been more friendly. Ate in the hotels resteraunt and was served a raw uncleaned prawn, when I complained ,the waiter was not too bothered he said there would be no charge for my raw prawns! That was very nice!
At over 300 euro a night with dinner this hotel is way over priced and to add insult you have to pay a 5 euro supplement , per person if you want a cooked english breakfast. Also 8.50 for a brandy in hotel bar and it wasnt the usual generous spanish measure I would give this place a wide berth much better value further down the coast. Shame This hotel could be great with very little effort on the managements behalf.But they have a couldnt care less attitude.
We stayed at El Oceano for just under a week last September. We stayed in the Mijas Hotel before we went down to the coast, which was absolutely lovely, so when we arrived at El Oceano it was rather disappointing. It's on the beach but with a motorway on the other side. It's in a very quiet location and there's no where close by to have a drink or a nice meal, so unless you're driving or getting on the bus, you're pretty much stuck there.
The hotel itself is stunning - particularly the location. Sitting outside, overlooking the sea, it is peaceful and beautiful. The room was spacious and comfortable and well equipped. The food is great - very international, good selection and beautifully presented: even the fruit and yoghurt at breakfast are served in cocktail glasses. The entertainment raises a smile...
Stayed at the El Oceano in May last year.
We visited El Oceano for a couple of nights at the beginning of our honeymoon. Although we arrived (very!) late, we were pleasantly welcomed and an appointment was made for a repair to my false nail - for the day after next as the nail technician didn't work the following day, which was fine by me. By the time we reached our jacuzzi suite (which wasn't as large as we expected - and no candles supplied LOL), the phone rang and I was advised that the technician would come in to the hotel next day, just for me. This was 11.30 at night!
