WHAT WE LOVE...

One of Marbella's original Golden Mile properties, Puente Romano has moved with the times since it first flung open its doors in 1979, maintaining a contemporary look throughout. Named for the first-century bridge which sits at its heart, once you've crossed its threshold you may never again wish to return to real life. A suites-only hotel with a smattering of high-end villas, it entirely justifies its luxury price-tag. Stay for two weeks and you could still eat at a different restaurant every night (with a spare), working off the calories at one of several swimming pools or gyms. As suited to families as it is holidaying couples, the only challenge is finding your way around its myriad facilities.

Style & Character

Though uncompromisingly stylish, the atmosphere at Puente Romano is resolutely inclusive and its relaxed informality suits couples as well as families travelling with children. From streams and waterfalls running through the gardens to baskets of wildflowers hanging from the ceiling, the hotel's design blurs the barriers between inside and out.

Service & Facilities

The offer of a glass of cava at check-in really helps guests feel like their holiday has started the moment they step out of the car.

Rooms

The Royal Suite is unspeakably romantic, with a pair of plush daybeds on its panoramic terrace and a private Jacuzzi and sauna. The tea and coffee making facilities were especially welcome when it was a bit of a walk to breakfast - and the mini-bar was stuffed with high-end treats.
