The Barcelo Marbella is a great base for all holidaymakers. Nearby, you have a great choice of 18-hole golf courses, but you can also enjoy a rally or two on the hotel’s paddle-tennis court, sunbathe on a daybed or book in for a pampering session at the spa.
With palms, a wooden bridge and thatched parasols, the pool area is distinctly tropical. The main pool has a sloping edge for little ones, and they’ve also got a pool to themselves.
As well as a pool bar, there’s a buffet restaurant for main meals. After dinner, you can watch big games in the sports bar, play bingo or enjoy magic shows and mini-discos.
Overview of San Pedro de Alcantara
Also known simply as San Pedro, the resort of San Pedro de Alcantara is the perfect base for a holiday to the Costa del Sol.
Although it’s one of the coastline’s smaller towns, its location means it’s easy to reach larger destinations like Marbella and Estepona. Plus, you’re only half-an-hour away from the natural beauty of the Serrania de Ronda mountain range. From the Barcelo Marbella, you can see a different location every day.
It’s not just the location that makes the resort popular, though, and you’ll love the great choice of golden beaches, beautiful restaurants and lively bars.
Things to do in San Pedro de Alcantara
The Barcelo Marbella is cocooned by the greenery of the Guadalmina Golf Club.
San Pedro de Alcantara is a place of two halves – the town centre is traditionally Spanish and is full of tapas bars and quiet streets, while on the front, it’s all about the 5km stretch of sand that’s flanked by souvenir shops and bars.
It’s also easy to explore the rest of the Costa del Sol. A taxi will get you to glitzy Puerto Banus in 10 minutes, or it takes around 20 minutes to reach the upmarket destination of Marbella. With a stay in San Pedro de Alcantara, there’s plenty to keep you and your family entertained!
