Where to stay - 4 girls

Hi..

I am planning a trip for my 30th with 3 other girls.

Never been to marbella before and havnt got a clue where to start looking for accommodation.

We think a self catering apartment would be best and we don't want to hire a car, we'll basically be round the pool in the day and eating out and cocktails at night.

Walking distance to the bars would be best.

Any location suggestions greatly appreciated.

Ps we are most definately after the more up-market end of Marbella!

We have been to marbella for the past five years and always stay at the mediterraneo apartments and love them. They are right in the centre of marbella and many bars and restaurants near to hand. The beach is literally on your door step. They are basic but spacious and clean. The views from the top floors are fab. Any other questions please don't hesitate to ask

Thank you for your comments so far.

Are these near to Nikki Beach? I think we would like to base ourselves near there thinking about it...

thank you!

you would need to stay in Puerto Banus to be near to the beach clubs and accomodation is so much more expensive in PB. Its only ten minutes to PB in a taxi from Marbella town

Nikki Beach is on the east side of Marbella next to Hotel Don Carlos. Other than Nikki Beach there is not much else around there. I think you would be better staying in a more central location like the ones mentioned above or Puerto Banus where most of the upscale beach clubs and bars are located

Girls, do not stay in the Mediteraneo apartments.its a dump...Try hotel San Cristobel or Fuerte Hotel...they are in Marbella near the old town and beaches...oh and bars...Try Mombassa bar, Gratto Bar, Bar Rocco...remember the night does not start till about 11-12pm.....transfer from Malaga to Marbella by bus from outside arrivals is only 5 euros and takes you direct to Marbella bus station...no stops...have a good time....We have lived in Marbella for 6 years and love it....much better and cheaper than PB...that place is just a rip off.....

Totally disagree with above post! We have stayed there for the past few years now and cant fault them in any shape or form! Ok they are basic but clean and in a prime position. We have stayed in a few places in Marbella town but found these to be the best yet.
