Marbella beachfront cemented its reputation as the place to be in the 1970’s when The Marbella Club Hotel became the favoured holiday destination of the Jet Set. With its Old School Chic image, Marbella continues to attract a discerning crowd, not least due its stunning climate and coastline. The wide expanse of beach around the area is now home to a number of fantastic hotels to suit different budgets but they all have one thing in common, those picture-perfect views.
