The Urban Villa is a beautiful guest house sitting on a mountain with an awesome view of Marbella and the sea. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. They actually sent us directions on how to get to the hotel beforehand because they know sometimes there are problems with the GPS on how to get there which I thought was a nice touch. The room was spacious and I loved the collection of DVD's and magazines, the shared kitchen, and the lounge area. The breakfast was good and plenty in the morning as well.
I wish it was warmer to enjoy the pool but the pool area was very nicely maintained and with a great view as well. It was a nice and comfortable place to relax. The only thing is that it is quite far (15min driving) from the center of Marbella but we did see people take a taxi to the villa if you want a night out. Overall a great experience!

We stayed in the Urban villa12th to 18 April and had the most amazing holiday.We really didnt want to leave.The king romance suite we highly recommend although all the suites are fabulous with views to die for.The villa is set high up in the mountain with spectacular views over marbella and the sea beyond.Michael and Michaella should be really proud of what they have created here.. It is a really fantastic place.The facilities are excellent and the breakfast provided each morning was fantastic. Total perfection in every respect.
We hired a car and soon got used to the roads. Parking on the street proved difficult and the carparks are quite expensive.Overall the car, insurance petrol and parking cost in the region of 200 euros for a week and the furthest we travelled was puerto banus.In comparison taxis(2 way trip) would have cost approx 180 euros without any headaches and need to stay permanently sober. The airport bus from Malaga only costs approx 5 euros each.
overall our experience at the urban villa can only be described as perfection and a truelly wonderful experience. We cant wait to go back.

This is one of the most perfect boutique hotels i have ever stayed at. The owners could not have made us feel more relaxed and welcome especially by adding little touches to our experience with sangria when we first arrived, conversations at breakfast, attentiveness when I fell over and needed dental assistance and even driving us to the local supermarket.
The decor and feel of the hotel makes is nostalgic and reminds you of visiting relatives (in a beautiful mansion mind). The location is perfect if you want to stay in a picturesque environment in the mountains but within close distance to Puerto Banus. If you want somewhere near the beach then this place is not for you but I loved it for that reason. The villas offer privacy although we hardly ever closed our suite doors because you want to mingle with the guests.
I can't wait to go back and would recommend this hotel to everyone...although I do want to keep it a secret ;)
Thank you Michael, Michaele and little Mia
We love you lots.....Jessy, Kerry, Laura and Lauren xxx

Room Tip: The delux is perfect for families and friends

When we arrived at this beautiful house, we had booked the king romance suite. It stunned our expectations as it was gorgeous the decor, views and the jacuzzi. The welcoming of michael and michaela and their laid back approach to guests made it feel so homely. They were very helpful with info and knowledegable about all things to do in marbella. The breakfast was great with a good choice including a lovely fruit salad. Love their home and would defo recommend the urban villa to anyone visiting marbella. Was an excellent romantic experience for us! Thanx guys :-)

We just loved the way the owners made you feel at home, but with true luxury. A really beautiful house with great hosts and a very relaxing atmosphere. I would recommend The Urban Villa as a great place to base yourself if you want to visit the southern coast of Spain. Michaela and Michael have a real eye for design and the house just oozes class. They are a very inviting couple but also know when to step back and allow the guests their own space. We stayed for a week and didn't really want to leave. We even got a sneak preview of all the available suites and the amount of space we had (and all the suites had) was really good. All the other guests we chatted to during our stay said same thing - "what a great place, so relaxing and inviting". . . Loved it - you should go and stay here!!

Room Tip: All the rooms were outstanding with views all round
