Travel was very easy in Spain. Once we got off our flight, we took a city bus that leaves from right front of the Airport. All the buses are marked, so there is no confusion. The bus tickets are inexpensive. When we arrived at the Marbella bus depot, we took a taxi to the hotel.The ride was only 10 Euros or so. We were so happy to see that our room had a ocean front view, and a little balcony for sunning. The view from the restaurant at the top of the hotel is spectacular. The breakfast was plentiful and good. We also ate couple of dinners at the hotel, it was great! But since the hotel is right on the walking promenade that goes on for kilometers, there are endless sources of places to eat, from tapas bars to sit-down restaurants. The beach is in front of the promenade and it is kilometers long too. There are small boutiques and tourist information places along the promenade, you can obtain information about the surrounds, as well as signing up for tours. Make sure that you make reservation ahead of time for some of the popular tourist sites, if you are in Marbella only for a week. Our hotel room also had a kitchenette, that had all the needed supplies to prepare your own meals, if you so choose. There are couple of supermarkets at a walking distance, so that you can purchase all your meal fixings yourself. The tour bus stop is only a few minutes walk up the street, very conveniently located. The Marbella city center is 10 minute walk away. The old city is lovely to walk around. There are so many places to eat: open air cafes, restaurants, bistros, bars within the old city. The shops have great selection of clothing, the textiles are very good. There are many ceramic gift shops. To sit at the old city center, surrounded by orange trees is a pure joy. We visited Marbella time and time again, and loved it each time. We spent hours on the beach, even though it was Christmas time, the weather was wonderful, sunny enough to get a tan. We walked along the beach for hours and collected rocks. If you are so inclined, bring your running gear, since you can jog along the promenade early in the morning and later in the afternoon, along with all the other joggers. There were many children with bicycles (there is a path) and rollers. People also walk their dogs along this route. It is most enjoyable place to be, and the hotel's location, the service provided, and the functional and practical rooms made this hotel a star in our eyes.
