It’s hard to think of a better location than the Barcelo Occidental Banus, Puerto Banus, near Marbella on the Costa del Sol.  This totally refurbished four-star hotel has the beach on one side and the delights of Puerto Banus on the other. The hotel is also ideally placed for the many splendid golf courses on the coastline.  The bedrooms are spacious and light and there’s even a small area to prepare a a post golf celebration drink to enjoy on your own balcony.
