... to the parking, getting our car and drive to Torremolinos which was on the way back to Malaga. In Torremolinos we parked our car in a underground parking and walked down to the boulevard which followed the beach for kilometers. It was nice cause there were all small shops and trendy bars build on and aside a beautiful beach. We had something to drink on a terrace and walked for about an hour, than we walked back through the old part of the ...

It really sets the mood nicely.

There was not a lot to commend the scenery from Benidorm further south although the lovely sunshine gave a blinding glare off the plastic sea that met our eyes for the next 600kms.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Marbella Heights Boutique Hotel
The Ultimate Hide Away
The Marbella Heights is the perfect hide away around tourist trap Marbella and surroundings. The location outside Marbella on a Hill top is just perfect if you prefer a good night sleep.
Breakfast served until noon definitely made our day as did our full day of hanging out next to the pool with "Rosado & Tapas"
A special thanks to Oliver and Norberto who have been most helpful, friendly and charming.
make sure you follow the instuctions on getting to the place. It's also advisable to have your own transport fixed if you don't want to spent your time just at the hotel.
Das ultimative Refugium
Das Marbella Heights in das perfekte Refugium für die Touristenfalle Marbella und Umgebung. Die Lage außerhalb von Marbella auf einem Hügel ist einfach nur perfekt, wenn Sie ruhige Nächte verbringen wollen.
Das Frühstück wurde bis mittags serviert und war das Highlight des Tages, genauso wie das Faulenzen den Tag über am Pool mit "Rosado & Tapas". Einen besonderen Dank an Oliver und Norberto, die sehr hilfsbereit, freundlich und charmant waren.
Folgen Sie auf jeden Fall der Wegbeschreibung zum Hotel. Es ist auch empfehlenswert, dort ein Auto zu haben, wenn man noch etwas anderes machen will, als nur im Hotel zu bleiben.
¡La mejor parte de nuestro viaje!
Nos alojamos en el Marbella Heights a principios de mayo del 2007 y fue uno de los mejores aspectos de nuestra luna de miel. Llegamos a Marbella y nos alojamos la primera noche en La Villa Marbella en la zona vieja. Después de los primeros diez minutos o así, sabíamos que todas las reseñas de TripAdvisor eran correctas. Una estancia con Marcos en La Zona Vieja es una auténtica experiencia de ensueño.
Tuvimos bastante suerte al pasar la segunda noche en el Marbella Heights, que acababa de abrir. Todo era brillante y nuevo, y estaba perfectamente decorado. El ambiente era verdaderamente fantástico y no todo estaba cuidado al mínimo detalle.
He viajado a muchas partes del mundo en Europa, Estados Unidos y El Caribe y sé que nuestra estancia en estos dos sitios de Marbella fue de las mejores.
Zen and the Art of Marbella Excellence
What can I say, FANTASTIC!! Marcos has done a stunning job and combined with the special care and assistance of Norberto and Bolivar the stay was absolutely marvelous. This is a small chic hotel of no comparison. The rooms are very stylish. It incorporates all the best of the funky hotels of around the world in to a small paradise above Marbella. The rooms are very stylish with an Asian Zen feel and generally provide stunning views over the Costa del Sol and to the mountains. The only drawback is you have to travel to town for drinks and dinner which is not out of the ordinary though catching a taxi back to the hotel can be daunting explaining the directions to the mostly non-English speaking taxi drivers.
The hotel provides you with a sense of calm and inner peace. It has only 5 apartments so it is mor like staying in a very well appointed home than in a hotel and with the full service. The Marbella Heights is truly a special place.
I love the place so much I did not want to write this review as I wanted to keep this gem to myself but I just had to share it with you. That's for sure. A big thank you to all the team who made this stay one of my most memorable. I WILL be back.
¡Una formula ganadora!
Disfrutamos al máximo al ser los primeros huéspedes en el Marbella Heights, una nueva aventura de Marcos y su equipo de la famosa "La Villa Marbella" .La villa está ubicada en las colinas cercanas a Marbella y goza de unas maravillosas vistas al mar. El hotel está muy bien decorado en un estilo asiático similar al LVM. La villa desprende encanto y hospitalidad, que se refleja en el servicio proporcionado por Norberto, Bolívar y todo el personal. El servicio es de primera, ¡realmente quieren agradar!
Nos pareció que la combinación de unos cuantos días en la zona vieja en el LVM, coronada con un descanso en las montañas en el TMH era la fórmula ganadora para una semana auténticamente relajante.
A truly special place
Nigel and I stayed for a glorious week at The Marbella Heights to celebrate his birthday and what a birthday treat it turned out to be !
The location is simply stunning as is the hotel itself .The views to the sea and the mountains are breathtaking and the hotel itself is really so serene decorated with a tasteful oriental style. We have been priviledged to travel through the years to some beautiful venues and The Marbella Heights is truly a special place ,
Bolly Norbie and Marcus really know how to look after guests to the highest level and were so helpful and friendly even providing an impromtu birthday cake !!
Special mention to our new friends Chigsy and Sunny who as all the other guests we meet were charming company!!
We are planning to return very soon!
Best part of our trip!
We stayed at the Marbella Heights in early May 2007 and it was one of the best parts of our honeymoon. We arrived in Marbella and stayed the first night at La Villa Marbella in Old Town. After the first ten minutes or so, I knew that all the reviews from TripAdvisor were correct. A stay with Marcos in Old Town is truly an amazing experience.
We were lucky enough to spend the second night at Marbella Heights which had just recently opened. Everything was shiny and new, and perfectly decorated. The atmosphere was truly breath-taking and no detail was left undone.
I've traveled to many parts of the world in Europe, the US and the Carribean, and I know our stay at these two places in Marbella is at the very top.
Das Beste an unserer Reise!
Wir waren Anfang Mai 2007 im Marbella Heights und es war mit der schönste Teil unserer Hochzeitsreise. Wir kamen in Marbella an und verbrachten die erste Nacht im La Villa Marbella in der Altstadt. Nach 10 Minuten oder so wussten wir, dass die ganzen Kritiken auf TripAdvisor korrekt waren. Ein Aufenthalt mit Marcos in der Altstadt ist wirklich ein Erlebnis.
Und dann hatten wir das Glück und verbrachten die zweite Nacht im Marbella Heights, das erst kurz vorher aufgemacht hatte. Alles war noch am glänzen und neu und perfekt eingerichtet. Die Atmosphäre war einfach nur atemberaubend und an jedes Detail wurde gedacht. Ich war schon an vielen Orten Europas, der USA und der Karibik und ich weiß, dass diese beiden Unterkünfte in Marbella mit zu den besten gehören.
Simply Amazing !!!
Originally we have requested a booking at La Villa Marbella ,
the sister hotel in the old city , but it was fully booked.
Marcos than proposed us ( with a special price ) his new venture and the only thing we can say is " OOOOHHHH MY GOD "....
What a luxury ....what a views !!!
The staff at Heights were incredibly friendly and helpful ...super breakfast...beautiful pool...and AMAZING ROOMS...
It is like staying at a Grand villa in Hollywood..
We only stayed for 3 nights but would not doubt to come back and to enjoy a full week there.. Although the Villa is a short 10 minutes drive to the city center , having a car made our stay
A Winning Formula!
We thoroughly enjoyed being among the first guests in The Marbella Heights, a new venture from Marcos and his team of La Villa Marbella 'fame'. This villa nestles in the hills above Marbella enjoying wonderful sea views. It is tastefully decorated in a similar Asian style to LVM.
The villa exudes charm and hospitality, which is mirrored in the service provided by Norberto, Bolivar and all of the staff. The service is second to none, they really do aim to please!
We found a combination of a few days in the Old Town in LVM, topped off with a retreat in the hills in TMH a winning formula for a truly relaxing week.
