I had a wonderful short spa break at this hotel over the past two days. I chose this hotel primarily due to its proximity to Gibraltar, it's renowned good food and the top notch spa. I was not disappointed in either of these areas. The food at La Loggia and La Veranda were superb, especially the latter where it's evident...

My husband and I visited Villa Padierna Palace Hotel for five nights for our first years wedding anniversary in April 2013. The hotel is a true five star venue.

We stayed at this hotel already in June 2011 and it was ok but nothing special. After two years we returned back to the Villa Padierna and we loved it. The hotel is still like a museum, rooms well decorated and the view from our room was spectacular. The Golf was in excellent conditions and the service in the hotel...

Very nice and calm place to stay in Marbella surroundings. Spacious and luxury rooms with excellent beds. Huge terrasses. Good and friendly service in the hotel excepted the chaotic service and mediocre quality of the standard breakfasts. The air-conditioning in the bedroom was 90% inefficient but I guess it had been restricted during spring and I can't imagine that it...

I wanted to give this hotel 6 stars if possible. We had the most amazing time in this fabulous resort and we don't even play golf.

I agree that the service was very friendly and helpful. The both restaurants in the hotel are up to standard but maybe not the most creative menu, the dishes are very old fashion.

We had read previous reviews saying the staff were unfriendly and too few in number so we had some apprehension before travelling. These are completely unfounded.
