we were disappointed. My wife and I have been coming to Marbella for over 12 years but this trip was celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary - so we wanted somewhere a bit special to celebrate. We decided to pop in to the legendary Marbella Club for a glass of champagne - staying there has always been a bit beyond the budget. First impressions were that it was lovely but a little tired. On entering the hotel we could not find a bar so asked where we could find one for a glass of champagne. We were told there was not a main bar open until 7pm so we would need to go to the pool bar. No bar open for champagne at the legendary Marbella Club? What? Anyway, were there and so decided to go. The prices were so extortionate that we had to change our choice to a little wine and cheese! We are used to high prices in lovely hotels having been to Villa Padierna several times but this was poor €14 for seven slices of Manchego? Chris Tarrant was sat behind us which added some interest to an otherwise expensive disappointment.
