“A location of paradise, relaxation, tranquility and picturesque beauty.”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

A home away from home. Casa la Concha is a dream location, where the rooms, cottages and gardens are a paradise of relaxation, tranquility and picturesque beauty.

We booked ‘Michelle,” in which a cottage that is located at the front of the house itself. The cottage is extremely well decorated and clearly illustrated Marie-Helene’s skills as an excellent interior designer. The cottage is well sized for two people with two big lounge chairs and a very comfortable bed; together with a huge bathroom and a spacious shower with decorative Spanish floor tiles and two washbasins for those him and her moments. Kettle and fridge were also provided.

A separate courtyard exists providing guests with quiets moments. Three of the other cottages are situated at the side or end of garden. These are hidden by the palm trees and orange trees, but also have their own areas to sit and relax.

The house has a great garden with ample sun loungers and an well sized pool for the guests staying either at one of the five cottages and the four rooms in the house. The garden had two double bed four-poster sun loungers for romantic moments. As well as a nice patio, where you can sit and relax, while viewing the greenery of the garden.

While staying at Casa la Concha, we felt we could truly relax. The breakfast was excellent and offered lots of good quality choice from Spanish ham and cheese, tresh baguette and toast with various jams, yogurts and fruit. Various teas, were available, as well as PG tips for those “english guests” including freshly squeezed orange juice.

Casa la Concha is an ideal location as a base for visiting nearby sightseeing locations, such as Ronda, Malaga, Puerto Buenos, Tarifa and the Alhambra in Granada. For those wishing to visit the Alhambra, we would recommend that you book well in advance of your visit. We would like to thank Sabrina for recommending Tarifa, as it is only an hour’s drive from Marbella and has a hippie atmosphere of relaxation and fun with a long beach of yellow soft sand. The coastline of great for kite surfers and for those who enjoy watching over a cool drink.

We would like to thank both Sabrina and Doris for making our visit extremely enjoyable.

Room Tip: We loved Michelle of its location of seclusion and tranquility.

From the moment I came across this place online, I truly believed I would love it! The whole idea of staying in a Spanish Hacienda that looked down over the ocean with little bungalows in the gardens really appealed to me. I thought the pictures on the website looked lovely and once I had booked I was genuinely excited to visit and see this place for myself. The first thing I will mention in my review of Casa La Concha is that I don’t believe it is a “hotel” as such. It is definitely more of a bed and breakfast in my opinion. We arrived late on the Friday evening and the owner was there to meet us and even offered us some food as we mentioned we hadn’t had dinner yet and due to the location of the hotel she advised finding a restaurant at that hour may be difficult. This I thought was so generous of her and we really appreciated it! From that night onwards I didn’t see her much at all though to be honest. It’s not that we needed to see a lot of her but occasionally we were looking to see if somebody could call us a cab or recommend a restaurant for dinner and the only person we could find was the housekeeper who spoke very limited English.

My partner and I both got the feeling that this place had the potential to be great and one day probably was but it all seemed like everything had been let slip a bit. The breakfast was pretty standard not a huge selection and the gardens out the back were not as neat and tidy as they could have been. In one of the back corners it looked like at some stage there was plans to build another cottage as ground was cleared etc. but then had just been left (it looked like it had been left for a while) and right next to our cottage there was a whole heap of rubbish/building materials left out in the open (these really should be in a shed out of the sight of guests in our opinion, especially if the idea is for people to sit and relax in the gardens). In saying this we stayed in cottage Valeria and it was nicely furnished inside and had a bedroom area with sitting area and a nice little private courtyard. We also loved to sit on the terrace of the main house in the evening and have a drink as the sun set over the ocean. Something you need to be aware of is that the location is a little bit remote – it’s a half an hour walk down to the beach/nearest restaurants and the hill is quite steep getting back up. This was not a problem at all for my partner and I as we quite enjoyed a walk during the day and were happy to get a cab into Marbella old town at night – there are some lovely restaurants to visit in the Old Town for dinner. In my opinion this is a nice bed and breakfast type of property, in all honestly it probably is slightly overpriced given the points I have raised in the review though. If these things were addressed I would say the rates they are charging are more or less worth it.

Room Tip: We would opt for one of the garden cottages rather than a room in the main house.

We stayed here a couple of nights as we were in town for a wedding. The apartment we stayed in was just our thing. Rustic and characterful. The grounds are really well kept and very pretty. Breakfast is served until 1pm! What a brilliant lie in.

The hotel owner was away and left his friend in charge. He was absolutely fantastic. Helpful and accommodating at every stage: helping us order take out, book taxis, that sort of thing.

Room Tip: We stayed in Natalie, a great room! They call it a cottage.

This is a beautiful place to stay, although a little difficult to find. Perhaps for those looking for extreme privacy, it is all the better for that. It is in a suburban residential area. We stayed in one of the little bungalows in the grounds. Despite having made a booking months in advance, they were not prepared for our arrival and did not seem to know that we had a booking. Nevertheless, we were accommodated. The breakfast is self-service but perfectly adequate and pleasant. The entire atmosphere is quite special and is very much like staying in somebody’s house. What we also liked about it was the fact that they kept the room regularly stocked with complimentary still water and it had free WiFi.

Room Tip: Stay in a cottage rather than the house.

We are just back from a wonderful week in Casa la Concha. Very relaxing and welcoming place to stay. Marie Helene is an excellent host and is so friendly and helpful. She has great taste which is reflected in the décor, the rooms and the beautiful garden. A rental car is definitely a help, given the walk to the shops and restaurants but the area is very pleasant and the house is surrounded by beautiful villas. This is a place you could return to, time and time again. Also Cabana Nagueles is a great restaurant nearby and is well worth a try.

We have just returned from 10 wonderful days at this most relaxing place. We stayed in one of the casitas- Alexandra which was perfect for our needs. Marie - Helene the owner is very friendly and welcoming. She has created a very relaxing informal environment; the garden is very spacious, the pool was very warm and there are plenty of interesting shaded areas.Most of the time we had the pool to ourselves.
Our room was spotlessly clean;it was very quiet and comfortable. The bedlinen was of very high quality and was changed frequently as were the towels. All the staff were very friendly.
We tried Marie-Helene's suggestions of restaurants and tapas bars. We may not have discovered them ourselves;all were excellent and frequented in the main by the local Spanish residents . She was very helpful in booking taxis and tables and arranged a massage with Fadi which was first class.
Casa la Concha is a twenty minute walk done to the main road where you can easily get a taxi into the old town or walk for another 5 minutes downhill to the Paseo Maritimo where you can walk along the beach/sea front into town. There are plenty of bars and restaurants alongside the path. Taxis back from town were about 10 euros.
Puerto Banus is about a 90 minute walk along the Paseo; you can get a ferry back into the marina at Marbella. There is a 9 hole par 3 golf course near to the Casa la Concha, it is easy to get to with a car and is quite enjoyable to play.
Casa la Concha was as described on the website and exceeded our expectations. It is a hidden gem and is one of those places where you arrive as guests and leave as friends.
We will definitely return (soon!!)

Room Tip: The Casitas are great

In een chique woonwijk hebben wij 4 nachten gelogeerd in B&B Casa la Concha. Een groot Spaans huis met een zeer gezellige, relaxte, rommelige, huiselijke sfeer. Grote tuin met diverse zitjes, groot zwembad. The two French daughters (?) we're very helpful and welcome when we arrived. You need a car! Breakfast was just perfect. On the first floor there are 2 big rooms with garden view. Room "Jacques" and Room "Olivier". Because we have bought a house ( with 1 bedroom haha) in the neighbor hood, we probably will not return, but we try to put our guests in the future over there because it has a cosy homely atmosphere.

Room Tip: Room Jacques and room Olivier on the first floor with garden view. Or the garden rooms.....
