Most Romantic Hotels in Marbella

View all Marbella Hotels

Check out the most romantic hotels in Marbella, a beach town in southern Spain's beautiful Costa del Sol region.

  1. First opened in 1974 by Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe, and later purchased by a Saudi sheik, Puente Romano Beach Resort Marbella is one of the most exclusive properties in southern Spain. The hotel was built to resemble an Andalusian village, with 266 rooms scattered throughout the huge beachfront property in 27 three-story whitewashed buildings. The crowd here is a mix of VIPs and well-heeled couples and families, drawn by the relaxing, classy vibe, and many top-notch amenities, like a world-class tennis club featuring 10 courts and lessons; three pools with towel and drinks service; large, elegant rooms; seven restaurants, including one by twice Michelin-starred chef Dani Garcia; and access to a beautiful beach.

  2. The three-and-a-half-pearl Hotel Claude Marbella is a gem of a boutique hotel in the historic city center, near numerous restaurants, bars, shops, and attractions. The handsome property dates back to the 17th century, and it's packed with charm and character. There's not much in the way of features, but guests rave about the free breakfast, the dining room, and the rooftop terrace with an honor bar. The seven rooms have a lot of personality, with a blend of antique and contemporary design details, plus iPod docks and flat-screen TVs. The vibe here is like staying in a wealthy friend's home, rather than a hotel.

  3. A short drive from Marbella's Old Town, this 193-room luxury resort has a romantic setting on the coast. Don't expect a rowdy party vibe here, though, as this is a far cry from the all-inclusive resorts that are packed into this stretch of coast. The rooms feature elegant contemporary decor, marble bathrooms, and modern comforts like minibars, 37-inch flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi -- but some can be a bit small for a hotel of this caliber. The attractive spa offers a range of treatments, and there's a bright fitness center with modern equipment and tennis courts. Several restaurants and bars provide varied dining options, and the hotel offers wedding hosting.

  4. The seven-room La Villa Marbella - Charming Hotel is a three-and-a-half-pearl property in Marbella's historic city center that lives up to its name. Rooms are spread out in several buildings, and they are individually decorated in pleasing Asian styles, with flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, and minibars. Some have outdoor terraces with hot tubs. Breakfast is free, though for other meals guests will have to venture out to the many restaurants, cafes, and bars within walking distance. The beach is also about a 10-minute walk from the hotel. There's a small outdoor pool that's a nice place for hanging out, as well as terraces and lounges. 

  5. The Marbella Heights Boutique Hotel is a lovely little three-pearl property with just five rooms. It's located in a quiet residential area up on a hill that provides spectacular views of the countryside and Mediterranean. There's not really anything within walking distance, and getting to the beach and city require short drives, but it's a tranquil alternative to the buzzier locales closer to the coast. Rooms are attractively decorated in Asian style, and they all have nice views, with even more glimpses of the sea from the hotel's pool and outdoor terraces. 

  6. A 10-minute drive from Marbella's Old Town, this large beach resort is set on lovely grounds filled with palm trees, flowers, and sculptures. Its superb facilities include a beach club, two outdoor pools, full-service spa, tennis club, and several restaurants and bars. The 243 modern rooms come with plush beds, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi -- though some can be small and the decor in a few is a bit dated. Spacious villas and Oasis Rooms come with extras like personal butlers and high-end sound systems.
