We found the paradise - my wife and myself - at the magnificient Hotel Puente Romano in Marbella!
We decided to go on a quick break away from kids and work; and we never left the property during the entire - expect of course to the hotel own golf club! Our room was very generous in size and had all the amenities you need. On the first evening we decided to try out the restaurant at the beach - Suite de La mar - and the waiter who spoke excellent English recommended the some sushi and lamb and we were not dispointed and even ordered another order of sushi instead desert! Breakfast the next morning - officially until 11am but we could see people arriving even at 11:30am - was a treat! Anything your heart desires after a good night sleep - a great simple esspresso, a variety of freshly made jiuces, a glass of champagne or more with some great jam on and I could go on for hours....
During the day we decided to burn some calories and picked up a couple of tennis racket and had a tightly contested marital match on center court, we felt like playing in Roland Garros! With all the travells I have done I have never seen a hotel offering such a spectular and breathtaking tennis facility! In the early evening we enjoying a few beers at the bar and there we made our dinner plans. Restaurant Roberto's is also located just a couple hundred meters down to the beach and is a nice walk through the spectacular and lush hotel garden - my wife actually said while walking it reminded her to a very known hotel in Chiangmai Mai, Thailand, Our table was facing the sea but we were still close enough the enjoy during the entire mail the live music. Dinner by itself was another great experience with some great Rioja, gazpacho and a dish of scallops to die. At the end of a very romantic evening a bit much of red wine, we were a bit lazy and barely could stroll back to the room, but no problem a hotel cart got us quickly back. The next day we had golf in mind but forgot to arrange for a tee time, but the very kind Concierge who organized our transport to the golf club informed us that there would be no problem getting on at any time. The golf club belongs to the two hotels Marbella Club and Hotel Puente Romano and tee times are given exclusively and only to hotel guest; upon arriving at the Club we hit a few balls off the driving range and then went on our leisure to the first tee. During the entire round we never had to wait and therefore enjoyed a great round of golf topping it of with views to Gibraltar and Marroco. On a side note my wife played her handicap but I struggled a bit with the 2 monstrous par 5's back to back. In the evening we decided to go for a Flamengo Dinner and boy a had a good time and ended up dancing ourselves until the early morning hours; of course dinner was delicious with a 4 course set menu. The next morning we got up a bit late and skipped breakfast but went for a 5km late morning run along the beach reaching almost to Porto banus. The rest of the day we hang around the beach and one of of the many secretly hidden hotels pools. On our last evening we wanted to do something very special and made a reservation at the beach side restaurant of the Marbella Club. We arrived at 9pm and the place was packed, luckily we had reservations otherwise we would have missed the best dinner ever...go and see for yourself no more help!
