Could be better !
Posted Jun 3, 2014
I would really like to give this aspiring B&B , not really an Hotel , top marks as I understand what the owners are trying to create . However , the Marbella Heights , is understaffed and a bit too quirky for all tastes .
The Face of Budda on the bedroom wall staring out at us and the statues on top of the bedroom wardrobes gaves us the creeps . We appreciate this is a matter of personal taste .
The air con in our room was too noisy to keep on at night and the shower only heated up after 10 minutes while the lighting circuit periodically tripped off . The bed was also too hard it took no prisoners and gave not an inch .
The breakfast is a bit of an ordeal , as the manager , Carlos attempts to prepare and ferry the food and beverages to the tables . While we were told that our wishes were the Hotels aim it seems , when asked , fresh bread was beyond their ability for breakfast and defrosted frozen rolls were the only option .
The Heights is a pretentious Bed and Breakfast that has particular and limited appeal .
