I have written about Marbella before, check out my older  post if you missed it.  We are lucky to come here regularly and I want to share my latest finds.

Starting with exercise,  El Rosario Pilates is the best place I have tried in  Marbella, you can park easily and it is so reasonable . The teachers speak english and are welcoming. You can whats app to book on+34692192796.  You can also cycle along the promenade and rent bikes from Marbella Rent a Bike.

I go to Diamond in El Rosario for facials, manicures and they also are great hairdressers and again the prices are so much better than if you go into town.

Marbella where to eat

My children have been playing tennis, they run holiday camps at Royal Marbella Tennis Club, they have a gorgeous clubhouse where you can work or relax while the kids play.  You can book via email  I can also recommend Santa Clara golf, again you can book with via Whats App, +34600885445 the summer courses cost under thirty euros and the teaching is excellent and Archie and Luella loved it.

Restaurant wise I always head to the same ones for beach side location and great food try any of the Trocadero restaurants. This is the kind of place that you can go for lunch and the children can play on the beach and the adults can eat in peace with fabulous views of the sea. There are lots of them and I adore the one in Arena, they have just opened a Sushi restaurant which is on the beach.

Zoi Zoi and Casa Anis, in Marbella town are our top choices you just cannot beat the food and service. For old time glamour head to Villa Tiberio and I have rediscovered The Puente Romano hotel, they have a new gluten free cafe and the Dani Garcia bar and restaurant are worth trying.

Best restaurants Marbella

In Puerte Banus , we always go to Los Banditos, it is busy regardless of what time of year you go. I also love The Beach House for live music. If you are looking for a casual place to eat with the best views, then head to Las Sardinales.

There are loads of great shops but I love the Outlet Shop from Ekseption Outlet in Puerte Banus, you have lots of designer clothes from prior seasons . Ekseption is a spanish version of Matches. I  always head to the beauty counter at El Corte Ingles to buy Heliocare and check out the shoe department for Gucci like loafers. If you like vintage check out the One Vintage Designs Pop up at the Marbella Club Hotel at the L’Inde du Patio.
