... had a much harder life, he whipped a pocket knife out of his pocket and cut us up samples of lemons, grapefruit, oranges, cumquats! Delicious! On the way out I thanked him and he promptly asked " are you non your own." "Would you like to stay?" Best offer I've had in a while ! We are invited to cocktails with the Captain tonight so better go get frocked up! At sea tomorrow then Rome then we are nearly on our way home ...
... 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 ...
... the area. There are restaurants with beautiful views of the Mediterranean with Spanish music playing in the background. Like every Andalusian town Mijas has its own Plaza de Toros or the bull ring and a beautiful plaza or town square. If you are a photography enthusiast like me, you’ll find every street of Mijas inviting to be photographed.
After Mijas we drove the mountain towards the coastal town of Benalmadena. We ...
... Gibraltar and Malaga, this city is quite stylish and I think too expensive! No shopping here! We went to Puerto Banús, which has apparently, quite an ostentatious marina. We saw fishing boats and walked along the boardwalk but did not make it to the "ostentatious" part! We walked the beach part, another day we will go to the port...that is where George must be, but his home apparently, according to the press, is on one of the mountains. Houses look ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Padierna Palace Hotel Marbella
We only stayed here for one night so our review is somewhat limited. The hotel's interior decor, the bedroom (ours was a deluxe) were lovely and our bathroom was one of the best we have had in any hotel. Pool area and the grounds very nice, we didn't try the spa.
Went to spain on my honeymoon for 2 weeks. We came to the Villa Padierna and were absolutely blown away. This is the most phenominal hotel I have ever stayed in, and I have been in a lot of them. Service was excellent, food was excellent, accomadations were ridiculously unreal. he only apparent draw back would be that it is not on the beach however, in no way is this bad. We went to hotels that were on the beach and the beachfront of these hotels was nasty. What to do is, go to Laguna Beach (5 mins away from Villa Padierna) and be spoiled their for the day. It is a club, on the beach with beds to lie, showers, and a beautiful pool (cost 20euro per person). Once again this hotel is a Ritz Carlton and it goes above and beyond any hotel I have ever stayed at. Should Heaven be like this hotel, that'll be pretty good.
Just spent an amazing weekend with my husband and 2 young children (age 7and 8) at the villa padierna. What an amazing find. Have stayed at many famous 5 star world wide hotels and this is up at the top of the league. Food, service, ambience, interior design, and spa quality absolutely spot on.
What an excellent time we had when we visited this hotel in June2006. We had read other reviews from fellow ' trip advisors' when making our decision to stay here and they were accurate.
Wonderful experience at Villa Padierna Hotel
I was on holidays with my family in April. We were staying in the most fantastic hotel ever! Villa Padierna is something amazing! The rooms are very comfortable and beautiful, the service is very pleasant and impacable. The Spa is so special, it offers eight types of sauna, hammam, turkish bath and etc. After the massage I felt renewed for a long time.
In the lobby, every evening we heart a beautiful violin... Flowers everywhere, just feels happy there.
Golf, swimming and much more.
I will always recommend my friends to go and stay there, because it is unforgettable exprience.
Fabulous hotel- absolutely stunning
We were recommended this hotel by family and it exceeded all expectations.My husband and I went away without our children for a few days and we had a perfect holiday . The rooms are beautiful and spotlessly clean, the bathrooms are enormous and very luxurious and the facilities are excellent too. The Spa staff could not have been more welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. They went out of their way to ensure the holiday was extremely memorable. I have recommended this hotel to everyone. - amazing.
the perfect hotel for a romantic break but we did nt think it was suitable for children.
After staying almost one week at the Hotel Flamingos Villa Padierna, I highly recommend any trip-advisor visitor to try it. One of the best, if not the best, hotel in southern Spain, Hotel Villa Padierna benefits from its proximity to Malaga's airport (40 minutes drive) and is quite near to jet-setting Marbella (10 km) and Puerto Banus (5 km). Located in a hill overseeing the Mediterranean (I was spoilt enough to enjoy a fantastic view to the sea from my room), Villa Padierna caters to golf fans like me. It has a well-designed 18-holes golf course. The newly-built hotel not only is superbly stylish (following a Tuscan-style design) but provides a lot of services such as spa, gym, etc. Personnel is not only affable/hospitable (not surprising given the Andalousian mentality) but also prone to make someone's stay extremely preasant, given their attention to detail (I heard it is now run by the Ritz Carlton, a good combination of organization and luxury).
Perfect place to relax
My fiance and me stayed at the padierna for a weekend and loved the place. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a junior suite which wasnt overly big but had plenty of space and had great views overlooking the golf course. The spa was sublime and without doubt the best spa I have ever used at a hotel. I have stayed at many hotels along the coast and this ranks up there with the best. This hotel is ideal for those seeking a romantic trip away....
...the costa del sol and marbella are terrible ,but the hotel was amazing.
i stayed in a junior suite that was very large and nicely furnished looking onto the golfcourse.
i can only recommend this hotel...the staff was very friendly + their english was very good which is rare in spain!
