Marbella and Mallorca or both?

We wil be travelling to Barcelona in September and want to spend some time at the Beach. Mallorca is closer to Barcelona but we don't mind the distance. We like five star resorts on the beach with a fun pool, great restaurants and nightlife. However, we don't like the over-the-top, crazy party resorts. We are looking at: Marbella - Marbella Club and Puente Romano. In Mallora we are looking at Gran Hotel Son Net and St. Regis. We also like to get outside of the resort for shopping/dining. Any suggestions?

We have done Puente Romano which was quite pleasant. But it isn;t in Marbella - it;s on the road west of the city - so you need a car to get into the center of town - or to other resorts - for alternate dining, visiting a casino etc. Or for day trips if yuo want to see Ronda - or whatever.

My vote would be for Mallorca -- it's a beautiful island and, in my opinion, superior to Marbella. However, both places offer sun, sand, and the opportunity to get out to shop and dine...I don't think you will go wrong with either choice!
Have a great trip!
