Happy Monday everyone!
With the recent good weather I think everyone is thinking about their Summer holidays! So todays post is a throw back to where James and I went on holidays last year! We spent a week in Marbella around mid July and it was gorgeous!
We stayed in the Feurte Miramar Hotel. I was really pleased with the hotel. It was right on the beach and the view from the balcony was amazing! A perfect accompaniment to a glass of cava in the afternoon!
My two favourite things about the hotel was the breakfast and the location. It was walking distance from all the lovely bars and restaurants and literally only a few steps from the ocean!
The breakfast was amazing! Rarely ever had to have lunch as the breakfast was so extensive that you were full up for the day! They did gorgeous omelettes that were all made to your liking and prepared right infront of your eyes! The staff were super friendly also!
I will say as a couple without children I did notice there were quite a few families at the hotel. I didn’t mind it as I don’t like staying by the pool I much prefer to dig my feet in the sand and hear the ocean! So if your looking for a quiet spot by the pool this wouldn’t be for you!
The beach club restaurant is really nice to eat in the afternoon if you are looking for a light snack and it is really reasonable. The fish is so tasty and fresh and a complete bargain! Would recommend it to anyone!
We dined out in a few places and I have to admit we didn’t get a bad meal despite being hard to please at times!
Here are a list of our favourite places:
For Great cocktails :
For amazing calamari on the Beach:
For good ole reliable food:
For the full foodie experience and more:
If anyone is visiting Marbs they need to go to this restaurant! The food, wine, cocktails and service are amazing! We went there 3 times in one week!!
We chose Marbella as we only had time for one weeks holiday. The flights are reasonable, and also quite short , traveling time was really important when we only had one week so I thought Marbella was the perfect destination. We both really enjoyed the week there and would most definietly visit again!
Some helpful info:
The airport is about 40 minutes away from the hotel. It costs around €70 to get a taxi which is very pricey so alternatively there is a bus route that goes directly for under €15. The hotel provide a shuttle service but this was unavailable on Sundays.
We also took a day trip out to Peurte Banus which is a really nice boating town nearby. Would recommend a trip. It is quite pricey though so be aware!
Happy Holiday planning guys!
