Marbella wasn't part of our original plan but when we decided we wanted a bit of a getaway, heading to the Southern coast of Spain seemed like the perfect place. It's a fairly popular tourist sun destination and thus home to resorts, restaurants and golf courses.
It certainly didn't feel like the cultural peak of our holiday but we enjoyed the downtime. In fact, I wasn't too upset when it started to rain for the first time since we arrived in Spain. It gave us some time to relax, decompress and reflect.
I didn't use my camera in Marbella - only Instagram.
The view from our room
-Because we were going to Marbella to get away from the business of cities, we didn't want to stay at a big hotel or resort. We chose The Marbella Heights and it was exactly what we were looking for. It's really quite small, more like a B&B, away from the tourists and resorts. We had the entire place to ourselves and we appreciated the personal touch - especially the homemade breakfast in the morning.
-By the time we reached Marbella, our stomachs were back in good form and we were ready to indulge. Both of us were craving Thai and had a great meal at Naga.
