Where to stay in Marbella

While Marbella is traditionally known for its expansive resorts and hotels along the shores of the Costa del Sol, the old city center provides top accommodation for those seeking a more authentic Andalusian experience. A lovely mixture of white-washed buildings, charming plazas, and numerous options for dining and shopping, the old center is located within walking distance of the city's Paseo Maritimo, a tree-lined waterfront promenade leading down to the famous Puerto Banus.
