Questions regarding an overnight stay in Marbella

Jump to last reply

My family (including teenagers) will be driving from Vejer de la Frontera to Marbella for an overnight stay. We will be going onto Granada, but I wanted to give the kids a day of beach break. We will arrive in Marbella early afternoon and not leave the following day until late afternoon. I realize Vejer is close to beaches and will explore them a bit, but my kids prefer the water sports available on Costa del Sol beaches.

I am looking at a small hotel in old town Marbella as I like staying in the central area of towns and I am not super interested in large resorts. My only issue is that the hotels in old town do not seem to have pools. My questions:

- Is there a hotel in the old town area with a pool?

- Is it feasible to not worry about a pool at the hotel and just spend the second day at a beach club before we head out of town?

- If we go the no hotel pool/beach club route - is there a beach club that would be best for a family (teens are 16 and 18). They would love to do some water sports -jet ski, wake-board, etc close to the beach club if possible.

- Would staying at a resort with a pool be easier and just drive into old town for looking around and dinner?

I have read a lot about the beach clubs and I am not looking for a crazy party scene, just a place with nice beds, food/drinks and preferably access to a pool and the beach. We will be there on Wedesday/Thursday the last week of June.

Thanks-
