Pension Aduar » (Accommodation, Save Your Money)

Awful smell of cats


Pension Aduar located in the old town in Marbella has a great location and is close to everything your heart desires in Marbella and that’s about where all of the fun ends! Although the prices for the rooms are low it does not compensate for the utterly terrible experience my friends had here when visiting […]

Restaurante Santiago » (Restaurants, Save Your Money)

Visual deception


Restaurant Santiago on the Paseo Maritimo near the Puerto Deportivo in Marbella seems like the perfect place for a romantic dinner in an attractive setting at first glance, but boy were we wrong! The staff had apparently taken their pretentious outfits to heart and turned on the snob knob up to 11! They were cold […]

Miraflores Golf » (Lifestyle, Save Your Money)

So Far Under Par


Only three kilometers from the N340 and the A7 toll road at Calahonda, Miraflores is situated in the very heart of the Costa del Sol.

Ok that was some of the factual data over and done with. I do not know where to start with this one; a truly awful experience! Unfortunately I do not get to play golf as often as I would like, therefore when I do get the opportunity to play I want to enjoy all aspects of the course. However with Miraflores, the only enjoyable aspect was …….

Los Arqueros Golf & Country Club » (Lifestyle, Save Your Money)

Off course


Arriving at the course and able to park easily, we visit the adequately stocked pro shop. The assistant informs us that this is the last day of the 88 Euro “value” deal for 2 players’ Inc. buggy!


On the first tee the starter is helpful and friendly we hit two drives down the first and are directed to the FREE fresh fruit adjacent to the tee , the sun is shining what could go wrong?

Polo House Marbella » (Restaurants, Save Your Money)

Major mishap


Situated on the Golden Mile this “fine dining “restaurant has been established for over two years. Fronted by Major James Hewitt and owned by the Metrogrupo who also own the successful Old Joy’s Pub in Puerto Banus, Jack’s American Brasserie and Mumtaz, this establishment has cemented itself firmly into the culinary timetable of locals and […]

Cerveceria 100 Montaditos » (Restaurants, Save Your Money)

What a disappointment


Cervecería 100 Montaditos have just opened a new restaurant in the main street of Marbella, Ricardo Soriano. I have never tried it before and therefore thought it was a good time to start, particularly with it being two minutes from where I live.

Love to Eat » (Restaurants, Save Your Money)

Overpriced, overrated


I had heard so many disappointing comments about Love to Eat on the Golden Mile, I felt it was time to explore the truth. Sadly the quaint exterior proved to be the only positive attribute I fell across. We followed the normal process you undertake on arriving at a restaurant and took a seat at one of the numerous tables, we had extensive choice being the only guests (during peak time), so selected a seat adjacent to the bar.

Marisquería La Pesquera » (Restaurants, Save Your Money)

A tourist trap in the center of Marbella


A harsh way to open a review I know, however La Pesquera in Plaza de La Victoria in the old town left me with that impression.

We visited La Pesquera at the beginning of October, and were unfortunately met with indifference. The service was slow to non-existant, being served ten minutes after being seated. I kindly asked them to recommend a wine to compliment our food choices, but this request did not seem to go down well and certainly did not increase the service level.

Telepizza » (Restaurants, Save Your Money)

A waste of taste


I really don’t know how to begin in expressing my disappointment. I realise that expectations should be kept to a minimum when dining at a chain such as this. However in the past, I have had fairly good experiences with the likes of Pizza Hut and Dominos, so this is the level of calibre I was expecting.
