Holiday: Marbella, Spain (Part One - Hotel, Location & Daytime)

Marbella Sign Spain Holiday Summer Sun

At the end of August, Rob and I jumped on a plane heading for somewhere sunny after a typical Welsh summer of rain.  We spend a week in Marbella enjoying sun, sea and too much food! We took an insane amount of pictures, so I'm going to split this post into two parts.  This part will talk about where we stayed and how we spent our days, and the other post will be about eating out in the evenings and our little trip to Puerto Banus.

We stayed in the Puerto Azul Aparthotel, which was in such a gorgeous location - right next to the sea! We were lucky enough to have a room with a gorgeous sea view.  We loved the hotel, and would definitely recommend it to anyone heading to Marbella.  With such a beautiful view, we couldn't resist a few snaps!

The hotel was in an ideal location - we could walk to everything we wanted to explore and it was perfect for day-to-day because we were so close to the beach.  We had the choice of relaxing by the pool or lying on the beach every day.

Around every corner in Marbella was a picturesque view or a cute beach hut - I've never taken so many photographs!  We were lucky enough to have glorious almost every day without a cloud in the sky, so every time we weren't sunbathing (or napping), we were walking around seeing what Marbella had to offer.

The one slightly cloudier and cooler day we walked inland to La Cañada and managed to find this little beauty - keep your eyes peeled for a haul post!

We loved every minute of our week in the sun, and have so many more photos to share; check back later this week for part 2!
