On one of Marbella's prettiest plant-filled pedestrian streets (on the right just up Calle Ancha), this small hotel has a warm, homey feel, and the rooms are lovely. The lobby feels welcoming, with turquoise-and-blue tiles; bright, Andalusian-themed paintings—painted by the owner—hang throughout the property. The rooms, redone in 2014, are furnished with wood beams, terra-cotta tiles, wrought-iron headboards, and exquisitely tiled bathrooms in warm earth tones. Breakfast,
which uses organic products and natural juices, is served in the cozy dining room, and the boutiques and the beach are just a short stroll away.
