Charming hotel for a charming town
Posted Aug 16, 2016
This hotel is a beautiful, charming hotel nestled into the downtown village of Benahavis. So much detail and love was put into the decor and ambiance of the rooms and hotel entrance. All the rooms are accessible through an open courtyard that centers around a small, sailboat-shaped pool. The room itself was a bit dark for lighting, but it added to the ambiance. If you want peace and quiet, and to escape from the world, this hotel is a good idea. That said, a word of necessary caution: the town is a series of steep and narrow roadways, and the hotel itself is almost hidden in the downtown area. There is no parking garage for the hotel, and it is situated at the top of a steep hill, so carrying luggage is challenging. Driving-wise, this town is not for the faint of heart! The roads are narrow and steep and often one-way depending on the time of day. The town is also a bit of a journey from the beach and main Marbella/Puerto Banus attractions, also requiring driving through many winding mountain roads. Having a car is a must, or plan on spending a lot of money on cabs. Local restaurants are terrific, however, and the town has a great energy at night.
