Wondering about Marbella Beach Resort

 

When is a good time to go? Was it worth the flight time? Did you travel to any other part of Spain? Did you go to Morocco from there? Was it easily accessible?

    Although I love the beach, I wouldn't fly all the way to southern Spain for a beach vacation.  But, it also depends where you are located... if you're from Europe that may work for you.

     

    The Marbella property is beautiful.  Stayed there for 2 nights as a walk-in and got a very good (better than very good!) price.  Spent about 15 nights in the Andalucia region of Spain and a couple of nights in Gibraltar and a day trip to Tangier, Morocco. 

     

    You can take a hydrofoil to Morocco.  We took a typical tour... kind of a ripoff but felt safer than doing it on our own.  Even ended up buying a couple of rugs!

     

    Granada, Cordoba, Ronda (horseback riding at dawn was awesome!), Seville, the white towns, Cadiz... are all worth seeing!

     

    We went in February a number of years ago.  Weather was fine... even had to buy shorts to sit on the beach in Marbella!  If I were planning a beach vacation, I probably wouldn't pick February!  And, you don't want to go in summer as it is packed with European tourists!
