... built up in the hills and are enjoyed as holiday spots for water sports and hikers.The scenery is a cross between Wanaka and Dunstan and Tasmania, I thought. There was eucalyptus trees, almonds, olives and lots of citrus trees. The man taking the tour was very excited about the dams as they held 5 years of water should they need it. We visited an old traditional village called Alore, narrow streets and a ...
... a feeling of weightlessness in between steps. I got back to the cabin, got the suitcases quickly set out prior to the midnight deadline and tried to get to sleep as we rolled and churned, listening to the wind whistle through the balcony door.
We exited the ship at leisure the next morning as we were spending our final day in Barcelona before flying home Sunday ...
... and everything. My kind of place!
We got some shopping time in and made our way back to the bus for a ride down the mountain and down the coastline back to Malaga.
This was by far my favorite place. Well, other than Barcelona. I'm very impressed with Spain and really would like to return fir some land travel. The high speed train comes right to Malaga and it has a major airport. I have tons of pictures. I hope you enjoy ...
... around and then decided to see the Castillo de Colomores or the Colomores Castle. It’s not really a castle but a monument built as a tribute for Christopher Columbus. The architecture of the monument is very interesting as it seems to be an amalgamation of various architectural styles that had an influence on Spain- Arabic, Gothic, and Romanesque. It’s a small structure can be explored in a half hour and lots of fun for kids ...
... 000 steps in the day. Walking off all the lovely food. We had what seemed like a 10 course seafood dinner last night. Yummo. Our heads are swimming with all there is to see and do every day. It's hard to keep up sometimes with where you are and what you are doing. Tomorrow catching the fast speed boat to Morocco. They say you can have very rough seas in the Straights of Morocco so here's hoping for a calm trip as we have a long drive to ...

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!
