El Vivero 29, 19-26/9 2002 We found Marbella to be an excellent choice for a holiday, Lots
of quality shops for the ladies, an unbelievable choice of Golf Courses with
reduced rates between Mid-June and Mid September at most courses. There is
a wonderful choice of restaurants and we would suggest you visit DA BRUNO sul
mare, in Marbella, the food and service is superb, the wines are slightly more
expensive, but what the hell you're on holiday! The other restaurant worth
a visit is ALBERT'S at Puerto Cabopina approx. 12km but worth the journey.
Puerto Banus and the Marina full of the most magnificent floating "gin palaces" is definitely worth a visit if only to see how the other half live!!
If you have a car take a trip to Rhonda approx. 50km of magnificent scenery and if you are lucky like we were, you may see an eagle soaring on the "thermals" no more than 10metres from the car whilst driving through the mountains. The gorge between the Old and New town of Rhonda is quite spectacular. A visit to the hill town of Mijas is also recommended.

El Vivero 45, 2-16/8 2002 We
had a fantastic two weeks at El Vivero 45. The pool and gardens were unbelievable.
We were quite pleased that the urbanization was out of the hustle and bustle
of Marbella itself but near enough to get to within 5-10 minutes. There
was a supermarket literally 5 minutes down the road and plenty of golf
courses to choose from.We feel that this was probably the most relaxing
holiday we have ever had as a family and did not want to leave.

Casa Blanca 5, 13-20/7 2002 We
came to Marbella to get away from London life, and we found that this was
the place to totally relax and enjoy ourselves. On the flip side of that,
Marbella is also a lively place and you can go out until the early hours
of the morning which is great.
The food and wine is of a good standard and the locals are usually friendly. If you haven't been give it a go.
