... 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 ...
Day 4's beginning was rather disappointing. Our plan was to spend the day in Granada, visiting the coveted Alhambra and then on the way back stop at the coastal village of Nerja. The entry into Alhambra is time restricted-there’s only certain times of the day you can visit it. We started early to get there by 9am through the mountains. Our son started to feel the motion sickness and with the ¾ ...
... below from the village are like an artist's strokes on canvas. There are three bridges on connecting the gorge and thus the old and new town. The tallest bridge 'Puente Nuevo’ is the city’s most impressive features and affords unparalleled views. Every street in the old town was full of a characteristic ...

slow motion with village folk chatting with each other while sipping a drink.
We loved the traditional Spanish village charm of Casares.
On our way back we stopped at Marbella- a popular resort town.
We went through the old town’s clean, narrow, cobblestone streets; every street
had its own unique character. One of the nice town squares to see at Marbella
is the Plaza de los Naranjos or Orange Square. ...
We drove back to Marbella today to check out the beach area and of course I was on the lookout for George Clooney. No luck today! There were a lot more tourists as we are now in the middle of Easter Celebrations so families have holidays, most of the week, until Sunday! There are still no obvious crowds. Marbella is one of Europe's most exclusive holiday resorts, frequented by royalty and film stars, so where was George? Part of the Costa del Sol which ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Vasari Vacation Resort Marbella
We just returned from a week at the Vasari Resort in Marbella / Puerto Banus and it was fantastic! This was my wife's first visit to Europe and she was a little bit apprehensive about whether European standards for "five-star" resorts would provide us with the same kinds of amenities we're used to when travelling in North America.
SIMPLY AMAZING! Reserved a week of hollidays on April with MARBELLA OPTIONS, in Vasari Resort. After seeing some reviews here, i decided to do it. When i arrived there, i was really surprised with the apartment. First i thought it was only a bedroom with bathroom, but then it was a complete apartment with kitchen, living-room, bedroom, and good bathroom with jacuzzi. Everything well cleaned and in good conditions, resort very good. Walking to the center of puerto banus is 10 minuts walking. By car it is difficult to find a place for parking. Driving to Marbella Center is 5 minuts. Right in front of the resort there is a good supermarket with almost everything. Restaurants in Marbella and Puerto Banus are not cheap, so i advise you to cook your own meals in the apartment. I also recommend a day passed in Morroc. You can drive into TARIFA (1 hour from Puerto Banus) and then get a ferry-boat into TANGER, leaving your car in TARIFA. Very interesting city, don't be afraid to go with a tourist guide when arriving TANGER, they are nice people. Hope you enjoy your trip and hope i've helped you out choosing your hollidays =)
My partner and I stayed at Vasari for a four night break over Easter 2006. We booked a one-bed apartment through Marbella Options and were delighted with the size, amenities and cleanliness of the accommodation. I have stayed in many so-called 5* hotels, but this is among the best. It is a lovely quiet resort within 10 minutes walk of the El Corte Ingles store followed within another 5 minutes by the harbour and main restaurants. We could not fault this apartment. It was extremely spacious and the fact it was serviced daily ( clean towels, beds made, floors cleaned) added to the deluxe nature. The 50+ apartments are split into blocks of 9 or ten and you can park your car under your block and take a lift up to outside your apartment door! The reception staff were friendly although due to the excellent weather we did not take advantage of the gym and indoor pool etc. We will definately be returning in the autumn for another short sunshine break and would recommend to couples and families alike.
Vasari Spa and Resort is well worth the visit. We booked after reading the reviews in Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed, in fact the resort is exactly what we expected. We booked a two bedroom Penthouse and it was fab. Loads of space, tastefully decorated and very well equipped with everything you could need. It felt very peaceful around the pool, with plenty of shade for those shy of the sun. Our two boys (10 & 15), loved the spacious pool. The Resort reception is a very short amble away and there are some facilities there for the kids. The Paddle Tennis is chargeable though, at 20 Euros for the court.
My husband & I have just come back from a four day break at the Vasari. The one bedroom self catering apartment that we stayed in was excellent. It was a home from home.
....and gone to heaven
Wow what a place!
We found this place through ---- and we had the only 3 bed ground floor, right in front of the pool. We had a fantastic view of the gardens whilst having eats on the magnificent terrace. We hardly needed to go out it was so good!
Well I did my home work but was very suprised at how good the Vasari was.
The accomadation was very clean and had plenty of space for 2 people it was so nice to be able to eat out but also have breakfat or lunch on your patio for the same price as you would pay for a hotel.
The restaurant I must say had the most wonderful setting facing the flood lit pool on a night time, we had lunch and evening meal, and I have to admit it was the best meals we had in the whole resort.
The Pool area was very well kept and very quiet.
The staff were very helpful and pleasent
Will deffinatly be staying again
Hi.Myself and my wife had what only can be described as the most wonderfull four day short break at the vasari resort just outside Puerto Banus.from the moment of our arrival at 11 30 pm approx ,well what can i say,you just new you had made the right choice.reception was waiting to check us in and promptly had our bags delivered to our room in the complex almost before we got there which with the friendly help of the conseige was only moments.The complex is stunning by night and by day.Our appt was nothing short of superb with every comfort and more that you could expect in five star.After a night in Puerto banus the next day by the pool was just the place to be to relax with a waiter there to look after us but not pushy in any way.the whole concept of the vasari makes you feel safe,secure and at the same time your privacy is respected at all times.
Just returned from the Vasari Resort after a week with my girlfriend. Fantastic place.
