Villa Padierna Palace Hotel
Set next to Flamingos Golf Club, this luxury hotel is 10 minutes’ drive from Puerto Banus. Designed like a Tuscan palace, it features a spa, Roman Amphitheatre and Michelin star restaurant.
Hotel Villa Padierna Marbella offers rooms and villas surrounded by beautiful gardens and the brilliantly kept Los Flamingos golf course. All have views of the golf course, pool or gardens, and in some cases the Mediterranean Sea.
The spacious air-conditioned rooms ( within the best on the Costa del Sol ) and villas have satellite TV, a CD player and luxury Frette bed linen. Private bathrooms come with a hydro-massage bath, hairdryer, slippers and bathrobe.
All villas have a private garden, and some have a private swimming pool. Villas also feature a kitchenette. To give you an idea, this is the place Michelle Obama, America’s first lady, chose for her holidays in 2011.
The Padierna spa includes an indoor pool and gym. There is a sauna, a hot tub and Turkish bath, and massage is available.
The hotel has 3 restaurants, with outdoor terraces offering superb views. There is an English bar with a fireplace, and a summer café at the beach, with free towels and sun loungers.

Between San Pedro de Alcantara and Estepona, take the Cancelada exit, and go right up past the row of townhouses. The golfcourse is about 1500 mts away.
