... 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 ...
... journey still ahead of us we decided it’s best for us to return at this point. We got back to Torre and decided to explore the city by walking in the evening. We went through the curvy cobblestone streets leading to the Mediterranean, stopping on our way for Tapas and drinks and coffee sometimes to chocolate and churros followed by some shopping. It actually turned out to be a great day ...
Day 3- The drive to Ronda was breathtaking. Gentle rolling hills with Olive, lemon, Orange farms as far as the eye could go. It really is the loveliest and most historical town of Andalusia. Ronda is situated in a mountainous area on a gorge El Tajo cut through by the river Gaudalevin. The views of the ...
... that I take with the camera. After La Alhambra we drove to Costa Del Sol on the south coast of Spain. We saw some magnificent mountains, travelled through long tunnels that were dug into the mountains and across some very high bridges over the valleys. I would love to drive some of these roads in a very fast car. We stopped for lunch in Marbella. We went to the jetty and saw some very big ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Marbella Golf Hotel
We stayed in the Barcelo Golf Marbella
The stay was for 1 week, I would rate this hotel has a five star, staff were all pleasant and very helpful.
The food was very well presented and varied.
We were upgraded also has the hotel was not very busy.
1. Must have a car to get around.
2. Security from garage to hotel floors needs modifying.
3. Bad signage to get to hotel from main road.
Would difinitly be going back again.
I booked this hotel after reading the reviews. Although the Hotel was good, it was definately no 5 star as some people are claiming.
BEWARE OF STAYING AT THIS HOTEL! I stayed at this hotel with my parents and my wife at the end of May 2005. Within an hour and a half of our arrival my wife's wedding ring and a small amount of money had been stolen from our room while we were at the swimming pool. There was no forced entry to the room and hotel computer did not show that anybody had used a key card to enter the room.
ecellent hotel. I had read very promising reviews on this site therefore this hotel lived up to the expectations. we hired a car and found the hotlel very easily. it is now clearly signposted. very quiet position has front facing room with beautiful view of golfcourse and sea. room excellent, bathroom out of this world. amazing hotel reception room when you first walk in. just like a 5 star. beautiful pool and surrounding area. colect clean, fluffy towels for the sunlounger.
Where to Stay in Marbella
This is a beautifully appointed, luxury 2 bedroom apartment on the Costa del Sol, also known as the "Costa del Golf" where no expense has been spared to ensure that you enjoy your stay immediately adjacent to Marbella's best beaches, with sea and mountain views, centrally located on Marbella's Costa del Golf directly adjacent to three ace golf courses and close to numerous other golf courses and only 5 minutes from Marbella's modern shopping centers, Marbella town and glamorous Puerto Banus.
Great hotel; location less so
We booked a last minute break through Expedia which was really good value. The standard of the rooms was very high and the hotel feels pretty luxurious. Its location is not so good though - the nearest bars and restaurants of San Pedro are over a kilometre away (20 mins walk) and taxis to Puerto Banus and Marbella are 8-10 Euros and 18-20 Euros respectively for a one way trip. Also beware the photos on the Expedia website which seem to show the hotel in the middle of a golf course - in fact it is over the road from the course and built alongside a number of apartment blocks, but the photos have been very cleverly taken!
Stayed at this hotel at the end of Aug 04 for four nights. When we first arrived in Marbella by car, it was quite impossible to find the hotel as there were no directional signs in place. On arrival, we were impressed with the entrance and reception area. The hotel was new and as a result, they offered an excellent promotional deal on the internet, so we thought it was all worth the time and effort to get there.
We were very impressed with this hotel during our stay in october 2004. Sits in the middle of Gaudalmina golf course, close to San Pedro which has lots of bars and restaurants. Great room overlooking a golf course. Excellent breakfast, nice staff, relaxed surroundings. If you are going to Marbella, we would highly recommend Barcelo Marbella Golf.
We booked this hotel the week before thinking we'd take a chance as it looked 'nice for the price'. We were sure there would be some hidden building site or something but decided to risk it.
This hotel is SO nice. You walk in reception and know straight away you've picked a winner !! The rooms were GORGEOUS, the pool equally so (there's even a jacuzzi pool). The gym, one of the bars, and one of the restaurants had not yet opened but this didn't ruin our holiday one bit. We spent the entire time like the cats that got the cream as we'd had such a lucky find.
Would definitley go back, it's only 5 miles form Puerto Banus and its far nicer than other hotels i've stayed in - book it and see
Took a chance and stayed here booked from the web. The hotel is great, brand new and I think easily rates as a five star. Facilities great decor great and staff were great. New hotel so got great deal check it out some good deals on the table but I do not think they will last long when the hotel is established.
