Marbella has long been a favourite of British tourists, with established resorts and a general sophistication that some other Spanish resorts might lack. It'’s an interesting mix of Moorish, Renaissance and modern architecture and the city itself reflects this diversity with a hint of something for everyone. Golf resorts are plentiful for those who know this area as a golfing hotspot - car hire in Marbella is essential if you want to play the range of courses. Hiring a car in Marbella can be a good idea, especially if you want to travel to places like Puerto Buena - the A7 and the NP34 run right along the coast.
