Picturesque but pricey

Jul 25, 2011 No Comments by

Reminiscent of a traditional Andalucían village, the Puente Romano hotel is located between Marbella and Puerto Banus. The relaxing atmosphere surrounding the resort is present from the moment you arrive at the cobbled entrance. Numerous, intimate swimming pools, a selection of restaurants and bars and an array of accommodation options make up the extensive but picturesque resort. I booked a classic room, their basic room category, and although pleasant was rather small in comparison to other five star hotels I had stayed in throughout Europe. The originality and décor of the room was interesting, however a touch of paint and general improvement to the lower category bedrooms is required in order to sustain their five star status.

The mini bar was particularly expensive, with a bottle of water priced at €6, this costly start to my visit proved to be continuous as all aspects of the resort were in the high price bracket. I visited with a family whose teenage children were keen tennis players and hoped to be able to utilize the tennis court throughout the stay. However despite being hotel residents, the cost for 50 mins of playing time was €35, plus racket hire and ball purchase.

Other than the cost element, the hotel itself was aesthetically exceptional, beautifully quaint with stunning, extensive gardens. Roberto’s, the beachfront restaurant also deserves a special mention, in particular their Sunday buffet as it is truly magnificent, endless fresh fish and meat available, cooked to order, accompanied by an imaginative salad buffet and copious alternative dishes, such as paella and pizza. An elaborate desert selection and an adequate starter assortment are also available. Again, prices are high but for a special day, it is certainly worth a visit.
